If our lives were meant to be,
If the future's ours to see,
Shall we walk down this path hand-in-hand?



La Vie en Rose is a sweet tale of the relationship between two young men; from the start of their romance, their daily lives, to the conflicts they experience.

In their beautiful rose-coloured world, which path will their love lead to?

A colourful and quirky cast of characters to fall in love with...!

I want to ask, are there more routes aside from the two in this demo? (SPOILERS)












  • Isaac becomes the abuser
  • Elijah becomes the abuser

I did a second playthrough and noticed the path change, and I'm wondering if there is more to this demo!

(4 edits) (+1)

No, there are no other planned routes, demo or otherwise, as of this time.

Also, congratulations on finding both routes! We started calling one of them a secret route as nobody seemed to run into it!


I just want to say that the demo has gotten me hooked! I wanna know what happens when the full version is out!


Thank you very much for playing! :D
We're working hard on the next update, hopefully it won't take too long!


Hi, you should probably know that the v0.6 build is unfortunately unplayable--I just get this error where the title screen is supposed to be.

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.
