A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Nineteen-year-old artist Kouro Tomomi is bored and restless. She's tired of life in her small, slow-moving Hokkaido hometown. But her plans to study at a prestigious art college and break into the architectural and landscape design field were sidelined by a rude shock that impacted her on both a mental and physical level. Treading the worn path of routine at her parents' house and her part-time job at a local home and gardening store, she feels frozen in place, trapped—that it's still too early for anyone to buy her services landscaping is not helping.

But then one day early in May, a strange young man calling himself Kuro Daiya comes to Tomomi's workplace. Everything from his hair to his beloved motorcycle stands out a mile in this town. And early in the season though it may be, he has his heart set on setting up a garden for his new house—

19歳の絵師・紅露朋峰(こうろ ともみ)は退屈な日々をもどかしく過ごしていた。北海道のとある田舎町に住む彼女はスローライフに飽きていた。しかし美大で勉強して建築・修景デザイナーとしてデビューするという彼女の夢は、精神的にも身体的にもダメージを負わせたショックにより追いかけなくなってしまっていた。庭グッズの店でアルバイトの、マンネリ化した日常を繰り返す彼女は凍り付いて動けなくなったような感覚を覚えた。ましてやシーズン外で誰にも雇ってくれるはずないこの頃、大仕事の助け舟が来ないと諦めていた。

しかし五月になっていきなり、黒ダイヤ(くろ ー)という謎の男が朋峰のバイト先に現れる。金髪の彼の容姿から乗っているバイクまで、何もかも田舎町で目立って仕方のないような青年が、シーズン外なのに家の庭造りを始めたいと言い出す―…。

Refinery is a kinetic NVL, meaning that it has one story path and no choices; there are unlockable extra features once the main story is completed.

The main story has a focus on female/male friendship and mental illness recovery instead of romance, but the unlockable side stories do involve F/F romance.

Landscape OP/ED themes ("blooming", "bellflower") composed by 3x3holic.
