during the puzzle where you have to arrange the animals, if you tell the squirrel you're switching him the game misnames him as bear

Oh wow, thanks for catching that and letting me know!

HIII! i played the game and it was perfect i loved it! one of the best games i ever played :D

Awww thank you sooo much!! I'm super happy you enjoyed it! :D Thanks for playing! <3

no problem! im gonna def play other games made by you ! :)

When i try to open the game it says 'RPGVAce RTP is required to run this game.' How can i fix that? I really want to play this game

Hi! In order to play games made with RPG Maker VX Ace and earlier, you have to download the RTP. With this you can play any game made with that version of RPG Maker :)

Here's the link: https://www.rpgmakerweb.com/run-time-package -- If you scroll down to the bottom you'll see all the versions, so just download the one for VX Ace! ^^

Hope that helps! 

Tysm! i'll play it soon :D

the game looks very interesting but i have a question, is there a lot of running in this game?

Thank you for your interest! <3

There is not a lot of running, but there are just a couple of scenes that do require it. :)

thank you!

this was fun!!

Thank you so much! <33 And thanks for checking out my game and playing! :D

I don't know why but I can't download the game, I really wanted to play it and show it to my friends, Can someone please help me to know why I can't download it? I'm really desperate :(

Hi!! What type of computer are you using? Do you get an error when you download it?

I use windows, it says something like "download failed" (I had to translate it literally)

That's interesting... have you maybe tried downloading it using a different internet browser?

I will try it now

It worked, thank you! I'm sorry if I disturbed

No worries! I'm super happy it worked! Hope you enjoy the game! ^^<3

Hello, may I stream this game on YouTube and suggest it to my fellow VTuber friends?

that sure was a trip. the plot twists were definetely unexpected, and the puzzles were fun! oliver and walter are really funny and sweet and I love them. one thing (spoilers for who still needs to complete the game)






the clerk. who was she sent by? future walter? someone else? she said I could understand who she was sent from, but my only two braincells left are asleep rn so I can't tell

Aww thank you! I'm so glad you had fun !! :D

and yep! Your first guess is right! <3

it's a very good game! I loved the art of the game:)

Thank you so much!! :) <3

This was such a fun game! I loved the art and dialogue especially. 






It was so intriguing to recall moments in the first round that echoed what happened. Like Walter telling Oliver to not touch the stove. I really enjoyed that. Something else that interests me is when, Walter I believe, mentioned becoming a witch in front of his mother, and how he didn't the second time around. It makes me think of how, if the white bird didn't spill, their mother may have turned on the twins as well. I think it's cool for stories to have multiple interpretations like that.

Thank you so much and thank you for playing! :)

I'm actually super happy that you caught that! I know some players missed out on that detail on their playthrough of the game hehe

Whoa - darker than expected! Great game. :)


Thank you and thanks for playing!! :)

Really cute game! I loved the pastel color scheme and the character design. I thought the personality of the twins was really funny because they didn't fall into the typical 'happy to help' main character mold. 

Thank you so much! Yeah, I wanted to try making main characters that were off from the expectations of being heroes hehe :)

Adorable game! I also love the charming replies of the twins and the history.

Sorry for the super late reply, but thank you so much! :)

No problem! 

this is probably one of my favorite rpgmaker games so far!! the plot twist genuinely caught me off guard and the dialogue was written so well that it only makes the truth of the situation hit even harder. incredible job, i'm happy i was able to play this!


omg wow thank you so much!! That really means a lot to me :'D I'm so glad you enjoyed my game and especially the writing-- I'm always afraid that my writing is somehow lacking so your comment really made my day! Thank you again <3  


aaaa i'm super late to the party but oh my gosh, i loved every second of this game!! the art and music were adorable! and that plot twist totally caught me off guard, haha.  i can't believe this was the first game you made :0 major thanks to everyone involved!! <3


Aww  thank you sooo much!! I'm so happy to hear that >w< It really means a lot to me-- especially that people are still playing my little ol' game! <33  You made my day haha :)

very interested to try! <3

Wow thanks! Hope you enjoy it! >w</

Oh wow! That really means so much to me! :'D

Thank you!!  <3


Thank you!!

The game was adorable. I finished it in a couple hours but was enjoying it! 

I'm so sorry for the late reply, but thank you so much! I'm so happy you were able to enjoy it! <33


I havn't finished the game because I'm stuck on the part where you have to find the stuff for the cake ;w; but from what I've played it's very fun and enjoyable! I really like the game and the main boys (they're so cute! idk if they're supposed to be annoying or not but I love them)!! This is amazing for your first game :)) 

Oh wow thank you so much and thank you for playing so far! <3 Your comments means a lot to me!

I'm so happy you like the boys lol!! :)


If you're still stuck, to find the stuff for the cake you have to
(First look at the cookbook in the library area, it's the blue book that's stuck to the table I believe)

- buy the flour from the shop place
- help rearrange the animals in that tea party place
- get the remaining items from the fridge
I believe that's all!


Oh thank you so much!


Just finished it and i can say that this game is indeed impressive. Few issues here and there, mostly technical issues with a few noticable narrative issues as well, but they'll get better surely over time.

I particularly adore the casual drops of morally compromised or trope-subverting lines and actions. They add a certain sense of surrealism in a way. Love the variety in NPC's dialogues too.

Overall, an interesting game. I'll surely be waiting for your next release. Cheers!

Wow! Thank you so much!! :)

One other thing, could you please add more save slots next time around? It really bothers me since i have to replay the entire thing in order to see some particular scenes.


waaahh I wasn't expecting how it ended in first timeline XD  I really liked your game <3  Good job!

Thank you so much wow!! <33


just a word: WOW

Was this really your first game ever made? :0 woah, you did a great job! Congrats! I hope to see more works of yours soon ;D



Yep, this was my first game! So far it's my only real game but I definitely hope I can get out more games soon too :) and thanks for playing! 


The plot-twist really got me tho ;-;


Yay!! >:)

Haha thanks so much for playing! 


The design is really cute and the story is really interesting.
I understood that Oliver and Walter didn't have the same design only after an hour, Then I noticed that Oliver has folded sleeves xD
By the way, why is the game named Hansel? is it a reference to the Hansel and Gretel fairytail? Or is something else?
Sorry for the pssible bad grammar, English isn't my first language.


Awww THANK YOU!! I'm really happy you enjoyed the game! <3

"Hansel" was originally just a placeholder title until I could figure out a better title since, basically, the game is about siblings that get stuck in a witch's house similar to Hansel and Gretel. But then I couldn't think of another title so I left it lol :)

Hi sorry for the late reply! That's weird... thanks for letting me know! I've updated the file and I think it should be fine now. :)


Hansel was a wild ride from start to finish. The twins begin as very unlikeable brats but evolve into children struggling against the cruelties of the world who were forced to make choices to survive. I enjoyed the gameplay and puzzles typical of classic RPG Makers. Each area was fun to explore. The twist of the story caught me off-guard a little but kept me going until the end with intense interest. The only complain I have is that I got lost in the village area before the climax of helping the girl escape from the village. I didn't know I had to talk to everyone to continue to the next event. But then again, I tend to miss obvious cues. This game has been added to the list of ones that will continue to haunt me (albeit in a good way).

Aww I really appreciate your comment! I'm so happy you enjoyed playing and I'm glad you played through the twist!! And wow, that's super awesome that Hansel made it onto your list. Thank you so much!! :D

This was really cool!

Aww thank you!! And thank you so much for playing! :)

Can I do the translation into spanish?

Yeah!! That would be so awesome of you!!


i tried to launch the game but it said "you need rtp to run this program"

or something like that. it looks like a really pretty game tho :)

Oh yeah!! you can download it here! http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/download/additional/run-time-packages

Sorry for the late reply!! Thank you!

thank you! :)

KAWAII-DESUUUUUUUU!!! FINALLY I FOUND A CUTE GAME THATS NOT SHORT AND DOESN'T HAVE ITS OWN RTP!!! I HAVE COMPLETED MAH MISSIONNNN!!! At first, I didn't even see the game! I finally found the holy grail to my mission I just need to delete some unwanted history on google! And deleting unwanted history gives a lot of storage! The art is pretty good! In my mind I was like; "Oh no.. The screenshots.. THIS IS GOING TO TAKE A LOT OF MY STORAGE ISN'T IT?!" Then I saw the download and I was like; "I'm ded and alive. And happy. I'm stuck in purgatory." Thank the heavens for this bootiful game. :} (SOZ IF THIS IS A LOT TO READ!!)

Sorry for the super late reply!! THANK YOUUUU!! I'm gald you have completed your mission! >:D

I happened to stumble upon this game randomly but I love what I've gotten to play so far! I'm excited to play the rest and even though I'm only at the beginning I feel really invested in finding out what's going to happen! Besides personally finding the characters interesting I am very fond of the art and layout of the game and rooms! 

I played this game as my first "let's play" on my channel, I hope you don't mind!

Aww wow!! Thank you soooo much! I'm so happy!

I checked out your let's play too. I really enjoyed it and hope to see more in the future! Thanks for showing me!
