You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

Amidst the garden of scented dreams,
Elite and misfit, two extremes

One stands in spotlight, one cast in shadows.
How will sparks flare as feelings grow?

As flowers bloom in the labyrinth.
A lone Miss Saigon stands among the hyacinths.

Like an apologetic, regretful dove,
tells the story of melancholic love.

Melancholy Love is a coming-of-age yuri visual novel set in a private girls’ academy. It’s a romantic journey that follows an elite student born to privilege and a delinquent who wishes to break free from the chains of the academy.

How will sparks fly between these two people from different worlds? Will their love overcome all obstacles or will their differences be too great and drive them apart?
