Arthur Kirkland is a young teachers aide at a college, trying to balance teaching with personal life. He's never been a social person and has a troublesome history, but this new college life may change his outlook when he meets Alfred. F. Jones. Will Alfred be able to unlock the gates that have locked Arthur's heart?[1]

This game takes place in a Human AU, where all characters are not personified countries.

The player plays as Arthur Kirkland (England) who is a teachers aide in a college. 

The game is a USUK (America/England) fangame, thus most interactions with characters will be towards building up a USUK relationship.

Game size is 64MB and estimated gameplay time is 2-4 hours.

The game works as a 'dating sim/life game' in which there are three periods during each day (morning, noon, and night) and during each period the player must choose where to go/what to do. The game runs for two 'game months' meaning there are approximately 60 days to run through and 180 actions to be taken. 

There are dream sequences that can be unlocked as well, which help build the story of Arthur's past as well as other characters.


There are no maximums in parameters, sans 'Mood' and 'Money' which are capped at 100. The higher the parameters, the better the ending will be.


This measures your current relationship with Alfred (America). This parameter will determine your ending and help activate events, so aim to raise this.


Also considered 'HP'. Activities cost energy, thus when completing daily activities this parameter will slowly decrease. If it reaches 0, Arthur will get sick and be unable to perform any other actions. Only when it reaches 60 will Arthur be able to return to work. Sleeping and drinking tea can restore energy.

Note: When sick you are unable to perform any actions, both outside and inside home.


If mood reaches 0, Arthur will refuse to work. Activities such as teaching, training and home activities cannot be performed. Gameplay can continue when mood reaches 60.


The game's currency. If less than 0, the game will automatically end with a "Bad End". Teaching at the school can increase your money. You can also sell items you've made such as black tea, silver cutlery, teddy bears and pipes. 

Note: Each day, 30$ will be deducted. This is the 'cost of living' so be sure to earn money otherwise you may run out.


When weak, you could be bullied by others, so it is good to increase this parameter. Strength can be increased by training and production.


Measures Arthur's 'attractiveness'. Some events may only be triggered if 'Charm' is high. Various school and home activities can increase this parameter.


Arthur's 'college influence' or reputation in the school. School activities can increase this parameter.

Events and 'Relationship' Points:Edit

The higher the 'relationship' points are, the better the ending will be once the game ends. Aim for high relationship points when playing.

Occasionally the player may meet another character and interact with them if in the right location. When a special event occurs and if the player makes the right choices, the 'relationship' with the other will increase.

Some events will happen automatically, after a set time, if they pertain to the main plot. Other events may be dependant on onr or two 'parameters' and/or the players 'relationship' with the other character. Events may also be reliant on the trigger of past events. (A certain event must have already triggered for another to follow.)
