English defaults to custom font. Hey folks, I've updated Summer in Springtime to v0. All builds have been updated. This now brings in multi-art style support. Along with this the old art style has been included. Please use the secret code oldieartxxx to activate this. Please note, this version's base art has been changed to use our version.
