A Hand-Painted Game About A Japanese Schoolgirl And Her Crush



Atelier Sento teamed up with students of Game Art at ECV Bordeaux to create a short game called After School. You can play it for free in your browser or download it on


It’s about a Japanese schoolgirl who stops to stare at the boy she has a crush on while journeying back home after school.


It plays like a point-and-click adventure game as you move between directing the girl back to her home and the thoughts that pass through her mind, dreaming of the future with this boy. One day, she hopes to find the strength to talk to him.


The game was hand-painted with water colors and pencils over two days as a masterclass for the students.
