A follow up to stevens short_tail

This is essentially a thank you to everyone who played the original game and shared their comments and videos etc. The almost entirely positive reaction was unexpected and a little overwhelming. So I felt like a follow up would be a nice little new years treat.

Now to get to work on a full length Stevens VN :D

The development went something like this / 26 DEC: vague idea to do a new years based follow up / 27 DEC: indecision and procrastination / 28 DEC: attempting 3 or 4 times to get things rolling but eventually giving up / 29 DEC: sudden resolve and determination resulting in about 90% of the game being made / 30 DEC: polishing it up and sorting out the release.

I can't believe you made another game sorry it took so long to get to it, I just wanted to find some other good games to play with it. It has even better writing than the last one. So many big words. The existential crises that Alina was having, was so funny.

I honestly had a blast, and I hope you enjoy the voice acting in this one as much as the last one! Enjoy!

Thank you kindly! Very glad you liked it and def no need to apologise. I thought Alina's existential crises was pretty funny, so I'm glad someone else does too :D

Your VA was *chefs kiss*

I was already subscribed, but I liked, commented and saved. Hopefully that gives the ol' algorithm a decent poke :D


Thank you, it means a lot to me when the devs like the video, and my VA. I don't want to ruin their amazing games. 

Also, I couldn't stop laughing when you said "ol' algorithm" 🤣



A perfect follow-up to the first game. Same chill vibes and adorable kitties, and (idek how) I think the dialogue is even better in this one. Great work! I kind of hope we get installments for every holiday now...

Thank your kindlier! And I'll see what I can do :D


this was absolutely delightful!


Glad you liked it, thanks for playing!

Sorry about the audio cutting :(

That was great! Cheers for taking the time to make and share your video! Glad you liked the games!


Played both of stevens stories back to back and what a way to bring in the new year. Loved this & all the best!!

That was awesome! Thankyou!

The first one already had a wonderful little story, but this just enhances everything!

Can opener?


The hairball was a bad choice

Hey, what a cute sequel, such a nice surprise. A happy new year to you. Again we had lots of fun. I hope we will see Nip's face soon. What does he look like?

You're welcome, thanks for playing and sharing your video! I have some ideas for how Nip looks, but it's a surprise :D

Thank you for the New Years treat!


what i needed as a sequel to stevens. 

Happy to accommodate :D


After finally seeing "The Thing", Steven awaits the next thing to pique his interest. With more cat humor, and his friends Alina and Nip to keep you company you should play Stevens Next Thing!

Whoa! Super speedy video release! Thanks again for your review and recommendation!
