A downloadable VN for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Download NowName your own price

Gunnery Sergeant Jayden Jones is grudgingly going through the motions of a brutal Marine life he canโ€™t escape from when suddenly he finds himself at risk by the law for blossoming a relationship with his Sergeant Major, Walter Hardy. Under Marine Law, these two are forbidden to be together, so Jayden will have to bear great misfortune and find out what part of himself heโ€™s really missing

(Warning: All in Love and War contains themes of an adult nature - You must be 18 or older to play. Both main characters are verse and there's one optional kink in the game.) 

The game was first written in 2021. This game was not meant to promote the military or the act of fighting. I don't condone war happening for any reason and I wish everyone around the world love and peace. 

All in Love and War is a +18 romantic drama Visual Novel. It focuses on an age-gap relationship between two Marines of different ranks. Read about Jayden as he goes through this bittersweet love towards his Sergeant Major. If you would like to read the VN without explicit content, there is an SFW version you can download down below.

Please follow me at @ChellayTiger for more updates. Also, feel free to contact me on Discord at ChellayTiger#3120.

Character sprites and CG art were done by me, and several of the music tracks were done by the wonderful Dust. Check out the soundtrack over here.

After you're done playing All in Love and War, please consider checking out Barachoda Bloom as it takes place in the same universe, and features several characters from All in Love and War:

Man, this novel is so amazing, i was expecting nothing and receiving a big history. I'm already looking forward to new stories.

Glad you liked it so much!

Wow this was my first vn and holy moly it was so good but ow. T_T

(5 Stars)

I'm glad you enjoyed it so much!

So I stumbled upon this and want to say I was not prepared for the levels of emotion and attachment I would have for these two.  The writing and world building was fantastic and allows the reader to easily get immersed. The ending was surprising and heart tugging. Thank you so much for this beautiful story, I could not be happier to have experienced this story.

You're welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed the story as much as you did!


I just got a review from someone who thought that their rating would be visible to other people. I wanted to share it in the comments because I thought it was sweet. For the person who made this rating, if you want me to remove it, just please request so in the comments.

Woah! That's a spike in views! I got a lot of downloads today. Does anyone know where this spike's coming from?

Can you please put a spoiler warning to your comment?

Hey guys, I stopped allowing ratings for this game. The reason for this is that there won't be any major updates to this VN anytime soon and so traffic for the game has been pretty slow recently. If you want to add a rating to this VN, just DM me on Twitter at @ChellayTiger and I'll temporarily open ratings again. 

EDIT: Turned Ratings back on.

The ending is full of tears T_T x99.

I can't believe it. I wished Hardy would fake his death and meet Jaydy when is about to visit the grave. I DID WISH that to happen, and they will meet again and live happily ever after, even for the rest of his (Hardy) life,  he is old though, death will come anyway. But, it didn't happen T_T

I was VERILY impressed at water fountain scene, when the couple danced. It reminded me about a song of MLTR - I Wanna Dance, @ChellayTiger, please do listen to the song, wait for the bridge and play the scene, please do. It is SUPER DUPER HYPER ROMANTIC (sorry,  I can't help myself with capslock).

While most prefer happy ending story, I do appreciate this kind of ending. It's almost realistic. I think this VN tries to give me lesson of life: It reminds me personally that life is uncertain, death is certain, IMO many tends to forget nor ignore the facts. And losing someone you dearly love is inevitable, and one must accept the fact, and go on, or live in the past, a choice must be made. Once again, it is appreciated. Thank you for the work, salute.

That's me rn
I'm preparing a strongly worded letter for that game on twitter @HMaster097.

Even if I find this visual-novel a bit embarrassingly suspicious... (don't worry, it's in a good way)

    ... - I fell completely in love with their story despite a little excess in the text.

It's a really great job nonetheless.

Take good care of yourself. 



beautiful story! towards the end I thought that eventually something was born with the Persian, William the son of Hardy but it was not so, I must say that already from the first launch I had sensed a little the end and I must say that although sad... it is very real and you gave honor to all those people who have lived such a story, Bravo! Many compliments. for being your first VN really nice job. youโ€™ve elegantly shown the beauty of being a senior man, which is very rare in these VNs that are only for young people in general... Keep it up! Keep doing VN and express all your creativity because I want to see it :D

Thanks for all the kind words, Arufuredo. I'm glad I managed to show the stories of those who don't get their voices heard often. I'll keep at it and hopefully make even better VNs!

Hi beautiful angel! ;-)

How are you doing? - I hope all is well with you.

It's been a long time since we've talked to each other.

I leave you a big hug full of tenderness my beautiful young friend.


Small detail so that you don't freakout...:

(this name that I have now here on iTchio is my real name, previously I used the names of my "companions" who I have in real life, we have lived together for many years, then we almost do all together even virtually, you will surely recognize their names - Johnathaniel, Ricardo and Angel...)


I loved the story, no matter if my heart hurts. It was really beautiful.

Thank you for the kind words. I do kindly ask you to edit your comment to give a spoiler warning. Most people haven't read the ending yet so a warning would be nice.


The art looks so good on this game, congrats!

I love this visual novel so match ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

All in love and war will has a second part? 
Btw i loved and enjoyed a lot the novel was so sweet and amazing.


Great to hear you loved the VN! All in Love and War will have a build that will continue and complete the story in the near future, it's just going to take some time since I'm really busy with stuff. 

will you spearhead another project like this in the future?


My next project will have beefy old men, Marines, and age-gap relationships, but it will also be non-linear and be more lighthearted, so take that as you will.

Honey sweetie lovely Jaydy! What a name! I'm kinda jealous for Jayden, he has a cute nickname. I feel like when Hardy (my type) calls me Jaydy, my heart will jump for a split sec and get blushed in an instant. 


Haha! Jaydy is a nice nickname, maybe you can get your friends to call you that. I'm glad my VN is pushing the right type of buttons for you.

(2 edits) (+1)

IMO, I would add that Jaydy name feels like a secret code between them, it's like there is another world that only the two of us exist there. If spoken with such a tone, it will feel sensual in a way that it brings arousal. It's like there is a shortcut which lead to a boner thing (oops), especially if it's spoken from the one you adore or obsessed (in this case, Hardy is). But if my friends were to call that it will be weird. Looking forward to see the couple's story in the future. 

That's a very creative interpretation of the use of the nickname. You make it sound very intimate. I could see why you wouldn't want your friends to call you that. Expect to see the rest of the story soon(ish)!

(2 edits)

Ah, intimate, I guess that's what I'm trying to say, considering Hardy himself to give the name, so it do feels intimate. I also love the way you create awkward scenes about them, such as  the morning scene in Hardy's dorm room and the entrance to the motel ones. It's funny and I can feel the awkward and clumsiness between the two of them, trying to overcome it. for they are trying to be discreet. I would love to have another moments alike.

Haha, glad you like those moments. I may or may not have more of those in the next build.

I love the VN you are doing a fantastic job, I love older daddy love interest and there are so hard to find in games im glad i found this one. I was thinking maybe you could consider using the drinking game to pick your preference with Hardy . Just an interesting idea that crossed my mind. I love to play a submissive character  which could make for fun  dynamic considering military ranks but by using the conversation option route a player can land on the dynamic of  dominant verse or whatever they want in a fun way and then play over for another dynamic if they wish. Just throwing out an idea. Love the game and look foward to future updates :)


That sounds interesting, I'll consider adding it to the game later on but no promises. Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks for reading my comment :) and that's fine i just figured it would be a fun way to use the scene or interactions with Hardy in general. But even if it never happens it could possibly spark an idea more inline with your vision of the game i'll be with that too 

(1 edit) (+1)

I liked the new update and can't wait to see more.

For NSFW scenes, I'm trying not to spoil here, let me just say I hope we can also have scenes where Jay and Hardy's roles are reversed in the future. Or perhaps, make both of them vers and let players choose what they want?


Okay, I'll definitely consider that when writing the rest of the story!

*gasps* that's a -spoiler- o-o

I want to read more. Any plans for a patreon?


It won't take long for me to finish the VN. I don't have any plans for Patreon right now, though that might change later when I work on other projects. You can donate to me at: Ko-fi.com/chellaytiger however if you so wish.


Hey !

Very nice bitter-sweet game ;-)

The characters are nice looking and well written, well done !

The story is short but enjoyable, good luck for the following...


Thank you, and thanks for all the feedback!


I just finished the first play through and I absolutely love it! I love the characters, the way it's developing... you're doing a wonderful job! I can't wait for the next installment! I filled out the survey, too, and I hope you take the feedback into consideration. Keep up the great work, my friend! Congrats on an awesome first VN ๐Ÿ‘ 


Thanks for the lovely praise, Brian! I will definitely take your feedback in mind!


It's the most beautiful visual novels I read the atmosphere among the two personalitiesam Iโ€™m n love with this thank you for this lovely work I'm very excited about the upcoming updates.๐Ÿ˜

Are you going to run another project when this visual novel is over?๐Ÿง

 I'm so excited to see more of your work. ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ


Aww, thank you for the kind words! I am planning to make another VN after I'm done working on this! It will be a dating sim, so stay tuned for that!


So excited ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ

I love this game espically the age gap that's cute but curious is the MC going to have other paths with other choice or just way Romance ?


It's just going to have one route with one ending.

Really great start to an amazing story! The only thing that seemed off to me was how fast the Jayden said "I love you" to Hardy. A moment ago Jayden says "I like you" and then Hardy tells Jayden that he loves him. Jayden then says I love you back to Hardy even though he just admitted to liking Hardy a moment ago and it seems a bit forced. They may have known each other for years but Jayden only realizes his affection for Hardy during the party which was only a day ago. It just seemed to move too fast for Jayden to say "I love you" to Hardy. Just my personal opinion though. Other than that, I love the story and the romance. The artwork is also charming. Keep up the amazing work!

Ah, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the VN that much! As for that specific moment regarding Jayden, Jayden felt a little embarrassed saying "I love you" at first, but then when he heard Hardy say "I love you" he felt like saying "I love you" back. This will be addressed later in the story.

Ahh, I see. Thanks for the clarification!

I want to Android download it game pls,  thx
