Hot off our panel at Anime Boston, we have our first set of announcements for the year!
Kindred Spirits on the Roof is now on sale! It will be unlocking on Steam in a few hours, but if you purchased it from MangaGamer.com you can download it and start playing right now.

We have some exciting news to share tonight: we’ve been given approval to publish Kindred Spirits on the Roof on Steam without any cuts or censorship! Let’s make Steam a Yuritopia in 2016!

“It’s great to see our years of effort finally paying off as visual novels containing adult content gain more mainstream acceptance and recognition as a valuable medium for artistic expression.
This is monumental news for the industry as a whole. Everything will be open and up-front with this release; no off-site patch or workarounds. Kindred Spirits will be sold on Steam completely uncensored. Seeing frank depictions of same-sex relationships welcomed on such a major gaming platform is a true testament to the open-mindedness of our society and the growing desire for mature entertainment that people of all walks of life can enjoy.”
