I Want to Pursue the Mean Side Character!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android
I Want to Pursue the Mean Side Character! is my very first visual novel! I hope you enjoy it!
Beatrix is used to being misunderstood by her fellow peers.
With her sharp eyes, tall height, and ringlets, she looks like the mean villain straight from a novel.
Thus, she decided that if she was forever going to be seen as the mean bully, she might as well reside herself to the role.
However, things change when she becomes fast friends with the new commoner transfer student, to everyone’s surprise including her own.
And more weirdly, how this new transfer student can seem to understand her better than anyone else and can see her for her true self rather than the part she had been reluctantly forced to play!
Beatrix Clermont, our easily misunderstood narrator. Has only one friend. Current concern is her height.
Lily Abbot, Beatrix's best and only friend. Says weird things sometimes like "tsundere" and "moe." Current concern is how to stop running into males randomly.

cute! the prince's reactions were priceless 🤭
aaawe it was so gay and so cute!! 10/10 would play againnnnnnn
This was very cute!! I love villainess x heroine stuff and always appreciate more content with it lol (things like "I Favor the Villainess", "My Next Life as Villainess", "Please Bully Me, Miss Villainess", if your looking for some good ones ;))
She is pretty cute!
Short, but cute. No actual gameplay, choices, etc, just story.
this game is so sweet and so cute!! I hope it's longer though but it's alr!
People who like this should check out the anime + light novel "My Next Life as a Villaness: All Routes Lead to Doom!", there's very obvious lesbians
There is also a manga with (almost) the exact same idea where the main character reincarnated as the heroin of an otome game but instead of going out with the jerk MLs she obsesses over the Villainess and trys to date her, Forgot the name of it though
Also Catarina is a bi queen without even trying getting every character in the game in love with her just for being herself
Usually I only play BL games and not the GL ones since I'm more used to BL but I came across this and it seemed super interesting so I tried it out! And damn, I'm addicted now. TIME TO READ GL NOVELS AND PLAY LOTS OF GL GAMES.
Ps: The game was super great, the art style was great, characters were great, and plot were great, ending was good too! Overall a 10/10!
WAAAA THIS GAME IS SO CUTEEE!!! I love the whole idea of it <3
This game is wonderfulllll. I've always wanted some gl isekai and they were so cute, especially the ending too. I love the artstyle and the pastel colors.
AAAAAAAAA I love this!! Despite being short I got the entire context of it and I am in love with Lily's assertive yet loving attitude and Beatrix's misunderstood feelings, goddd I love how Beatrix found hope and how Lily didn't give up on Beatrix, and also the roast, I love it!!
awawawa omg this so cute!!! gay panic wished it had more endings lolol
i love it !!! btw im not sure if this is a rude question but is this game based off the manga "im in love with the villainess" ? because i see a lot of references to it lmao
Sort of! It's basically based off Heroine x Villainess Tropes in Isekai manga lol It's one of my favorite tropes so I decided to write my own version of it!
such a delightful little game, I was smiling the whole way through! the art is fantastic, the humour is on point, and the characters are wonderful! 10/10 would get hit by a truck and be sent to a magical world to date the mean girl again
imma try this outttttt
this is awesome !!
I found this on android first, but yeah, good stuff :D
i love this game!! :D
Cute! There were some typos here and there, but not enough to lose track of what was happening. The character designs are lovely!
THIS WAS SO CUTEEE !!!! THANK YOU FOR SUCH A NICE GAME <3
nice game, i want to ask something.
what is the font you used here? can you please tell me the name? I need it.
this is the cutest thing in the world i love it
I LOVED THIS SO MUCH THANK YOU
I just makes this account to comment on your game, It was pretty good, short but it was a lovely story. When i have a credit card I will give you support for your work and love on this game.
Liked: Character designs, Bea's backstory, the references to anime tropes and otome games. Cons: Someone else mentioned this, but theres a bug with the text being cut off until the second line is loaded. There's also some typos, but most people would look over them anyway. I do wish it was longer but that's just my preference. In all, it's super cute and good for when you just want to go on a 'short romance vn' spree.
This was short and sweet. Lily and Bea have completely won me over <3 This was so cute and makes me feel so warm hehe. I adore the idea, the soft art style and the music! I'm smiling so hard at this :D
how tall is beatrix exactly?
Beatrix is 5’9’’
Lily is 5’4’’
And Trashvard is 5’11’’
Short and sweet. Just like this comment. 5 stars.
YES. YES. YES. I have always wanted a dating sim where the MC simps for the female antagonist in an otome game because they make her super attractive o(*^▽^*)o This is really cute and I love how Lily is aware she's been isekai'd to the game!
Nothing made me agree so much than when Lily mentioned having appeal to dominant sadistic men. (*ˊᗜˋﾉﾉ* I have nothing against people who enjoy those types, but I too never understand why that's hot...
Besides that, this game is adorable, very short, I enjoyed it! (´ ω ` )
Thank you so much! <3 Lol and to be honesty Lily might be also calling me out since I sometimes enjoy the type (if it's done well)
There’s a small bug wherein even if you disable the Music Volume, you’ll still hear the BGM play when a cue starts. Only way to avoid hearing it is to go into settings and click one of the options so that it gets replaced by another sound.
EDIT: Also there’s a graphical error when they’re talking and such. Like the first line would have cut graphics and such.
Other than that, definitely love the story. It reminds me of a manga that I’m also following. Same design, story and all.
thank you for reporting the bug!! I’ll try and have it fixed! And thank you for playing!
Isn't this a manga?
there is a manga that features a heroine x villainess story! It’s called “I favor the Villainess!” The designs are pretty similar (as I did base Beatrix and Lily design off typical villainess type and heroines types; blonde curly hair and black straight hair) but the story is different. But if you’re interested in more heroine x villainess stories, I totally recommend reading that manga too!
Strangely not long before I found this I also stumbled across a manga where the heroine is isekaied into the female antagonist of an otome VN and the heroine falls for her. I thinkit was on Mangadex but can't remember the name
Such an adorable game!
Also Lily's face in the scene where she holds Beatrix manages to convey an inexplicable amount of desire, that I can only hope is cast upon me someday.
it will happen someday!!! There’s a Lily out there for everyone!!! And thank you for playing!!
It's so cute!Especially when Beatrix confesses her feelings,Lily's reaction is adorable and exactly how I react!
oh this seems like a cute concept! can’t wait to play and try it out!!
This was super cute and funny. I love the concept of having the narrator not be the person who got isekai'd.
Originally it was going to be Lily, but that would be a much longer story, so I did Beatrix! Maybe someday I love to do something from Lily's perspective though!
My absolute favorite trope in webcomics and in light novels, wrapped delightfully in a cute kinetic visual novel??? I adored this, thank you.
