Try! (Now, That's When!) is a short gay romance game by Chie Sasakawa, for the Kirikiri VN engine. (Sasakawa's website: Take it easy!)

12th-grade students Tani (who likes boys) and Kakimoto (who does not) have been friends since they started high school. One day, though, Kakimoto finds out that Tani has a crush on him. Tani braces himself for the worst... but to his surprise, Kakimoto rather flippantly suggests that they try dating. "May as well give the whole 'gay' thing a shot, y'know?"

...Um, if you say so??
