♥ Welcome to Ambrosia's! ♥

Have you ever wanted a big sister or a best friend? Ambrosia of the Phoenix will offer you unending love, friendship and support!  (For gentlemen, perhaps even more than that?)

Share your problems, play games together and confide your deepest, darkest secrets...

Befriend, Text & Investigate

Oh, and there's a mystery here, too. Interrogate her and do things with her to gather clues. For the best results, balance your Relationship with Ambrosia and order your actions carefully.

Over 90+ Choices. You get to choose your gender, name, and every dialogue choice. You call the shots and run this show!

Text with Your Phone. Don't forget that you can text the two contacts on your phone! Or ignore them - it's your choice. (By the way, ladies, you might receive a flirty text from X. Well, as long as you've specified your relationship as him being the one pursuing you...) If you rather forget about the investigation and focus on your relationship with Ambrosia, we don't recommend touching your phone.

Connected to Real-Time. While not necessary to observe, you can gather different clues depending on what time it is in real life. Feel free to simulate coming and going by exiting the game...and then coming right back in!

Receive Love and Support! If you want someone to talk to, sit right there and don’t make any choices. Being the gentle sweetheart she is, she’ll try to make conversation! She always hopes to make you smile.

Warning: Be careful with making a Major Decision. After the prologue, there is no rewind button. Neither can you reload a save. In real life, a detective only gets one chance, right? So make every choice count. If you make an irreversible mistake, you may delete the game and re-download it.  Please view the "How to Play" in-game for more details.

Addendum: This cute, short game (~10 min.) presents you with a Mystery Scenario to tickle your brain. Expect to find the Answer Key in the upcoming Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces).

Addendum 2: If you would like to swap notes with other players, please consider joining our Discord.

Get Involved, Be Heard ♥

Vote on what you want to do next! We will update the game according to your input some time in the near future.

After all, you're the detective. After gathering all the existing clues, what do you want to do next? Where do you want to take your relationship? Is there a question you want to ask or a particular action you want to take? Nothing is too serious or silly for us!

Please let us know which Art Style you prefer, too. This will directly affect the art that is more likely to appear in Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces).

it is not working for me-

If you want to experiment with your options and see what happens and then start again, you might run into a little trouble.

Deleting the game and downloading/installing again might not work.
At least in Linux.

Saves are stored in game directory. Usually.
I do not know about other platforms but in Linux I got very weird results when deleting the game and starting over. It was just like old save and new session got mixed somehow. Some of the things I did before deleting everything was still remembered.

Turns out some data is also stored in your home directory in:

You do need to delete those also if you want to start over.

hey! just wondering when the next update is coming out? and if it is on a regular shcedule etc. sorry if this is repetitive, i love this game!

How do I play???




I was really enjoying this game, I'd been playing it for at least a month and made a lot of progress. I hadn't logged on for a day or two because I'd exhausted almost every chat and action option (besides any of the major decisions) but when I went to log back on, the icon was gone from my desktop. I don't remember deleting it from my computer and it's really upsetting to lose all of my progress :( is there any way to restore a deleted game? 


I'm kinda confused on what to do. There aren't many choices and I can't tell if I actually have to wait whole days to progress or what? And I just keep asking the same questions over and over. I'm not touching the phone, either, I'm just trying to focus on the "relationship" that I can't really have with her bc I'm a girl anyway lol... I still can't progress though.


Same here, I've been building my "relationship" with Ambrosia for quite a few days now, she wants me to take her outside and I can't do it. The game is super adorable and I love "talking" to Ambrosia, but is there any progress whatsoever? I'm running out of options here.

Hi, Mishasta! Glad to hear you're enjoying the game.

I just answered the poster above, but allow me to repeat my answer here. Ambrosia's is a vote-driven game that you might consider "episodic." For that reason, you will run out of questions to ask! At that point, please feel free to put down the game and wait for the update. Each game update will include fun, new features, based off survey answers.

This post has more details, if you're interested. Just scroll down to Ambrosia's tips!

Hi, aylabriann! Ambrosia's is a vote-driven game that you might consider "episodic." At some point, you will run out of questions to ask! At that point, please feel free to put down the game and wait for the update. Each game update will include new features, based off survey answers.

Thanks for playing the game, and if you have any other questions, just ask.

Whenever I close out of the game and reopen it, it says I'm "someone else this time" and restarts the game. When I look in the game file there isn't anything in there either. Any help?


Hi, blu_proxy!

Oh, no! Let me take a look. Is this for the PC, Mac or Linux?
