Happy Black Friday, but also Happy Please Be Happy release! Girls’ love fans, Studio Élan has delivered their newest project that they’ve been talking about for a while now. If you’re not familiar with Studio Élan, know that they’ve worked on Heart of the Woods and Highway Blossoms Remastered. If these names are familiar to you, you know as well as I do what kind of emotional rollercoaster lies ahead. The game follows the story of Miho and her search for a special someone who showed her kindness long ago. Please Be Happy is available now on both Steam and Itch, with a console release coming in 2023. If you’re wondering how much it’ll cost, it’ll be $19.99. If you want more, there’s a 90 page artbook and a 18 track soundtrack readily available too. Both are priced at $4.99! Thank you Studio Élan!
Little fox, I have but one wish…
Please Be Happy is out now on PC! This game is fully voiced with 200k+ words.
PBH is a comfy, slice-of-life wlw visual novel about understanding not just how to be happy, but how to be human.

Want to know what you’re getting yourself into? Check this summary out.
Born as a fox in the forest of Korea, Miho carries with her the memory of a traveler
who showed her kindness and spoke of home. Now more human than fox, Miho has
spent a long, long time searching for her person. She arrives by airship to Wellington
Skyport, one of the jewels of the floating island of New Zealand.
Despite her years spent observing humans, she still has a lot to learn about their
culture and society. She’s made a living so far as a thief, her heightened senses
allowing her to easily take advantage of people. She’s also seen a lot of the worst of
what mankind has to offer.
It’s only after meeting Juliet, the owner of a small library, and Aspen, an aspiring
novelist, that Miho starts to understand what kindness is, and that there’s more than
just the bad stuff when it comes to people.
