A big thank you to everyone who attended our Anime Expo panel this year! For those of you who couldn’t attend, we have five new acquisitions to recap, including three from brand new partners with a little something for everyone:
For those of you hoping for more cute girls and romance our new partner Chuablesoft should just hit the spot! We’re bringing over one of their most recent titles, and winner of the 2015 Moege Awards’ top prize for game design: If You Love Me, Then Say So! (Watashi ga Suki nara “Suki”tte Itte!)
“I love you.”––Three simple words that are always hard to say. When do you confess? Where? How? Everyone faces this worry, trying to gauge the proper time, but once you’re going steady, how do you keep it that way?
If You Love Me features an innovative event system with enormous freedom to choose how you spend your time—and when to take the plunge with the girl of your dreams. Is it better to confess early? To wait and see? Countless branching paths wait for you to make that agonizing decision.
Next up, we have something for our BL fans––our second new partner and cult fan-favorite, Mada Koubou, with their (in)famous BL black comedy, Hadaka Shitsuji – Naked Butlers!
The singular vision of diaboical genius, Mito Togo—a game for people who love butlers, by someone who loves butlers. Mada Koubou’s debut title has earned itself cult-hit status with its handsome butlers, and its atypical and irreverent take on the BL genre. Our release will feature not only English text and uncensored artwork, but will also be available on Mac and Linux platforms!
We also have some words from the man himself, writer and artist Mito Togo:
We have something for the otome crowd too! The latest title from our third new partner, Kalmia8, Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome (Bocchimusume x Produce Keikaku.)!
When two handsome young men spot the perfect girl to be their first model and help make a name for themselves, they’re determined to go for broke and make her shine—but first they’ll have to get her out of her house! Can these two really give such an anti-social recluse the makeover she needs to be a star? Or will she be the one to change them in this off-beat romantic comedy? Little Miss Lonesome will be coming to MangaGamer.com in its fully uncut adult version and an all-ages edition for Steam!
And not to forget our long-time partners, we have something new from Circus––their latest game, and something of a spiritual successor to the Da Capo series, D.S. – Dal Segno –!
Happiness. Paradise. Words that mean as many different things as there are people in this earth. What does happiness mean to you? What shape does your paradise take? D.S. -Dal Segno- will be available both in it’s full, uncut adult version on MangaGamer.com and an all ages edition just for Steam!
And last––but certainly not least––we have a new title from ClockUp: Maggot baits!
Once born into this world, you must live. That is the single truth that exists for all life in the beginning. Mentors and models to follow, the will to do good and abhor evil—are all a fiction we learn later, a fiction known as “ideology”. Living this fiction is what makes us human. But do we need such ideology to be human, as we do our limbs? Does that make those who lose or abandon such ideology less than human—does it make them limbless maggots?
If so, then this tale is devoid of humans—it is a tale of maggots. Crawling to survive, like the maggots we are.
Maggot baits, winner of the 2015 Moege Awards Top Fetish game, is our newest title from ClockUp, the studio that brought us the infamous erotic thriller, euphoria, with art by Shigeo Hamashima. Do you have what it takes to stomach this dark and violent tale, maggot?
That may be it for our Anime Expo announcements, but we have plenty more in store for Otakon next month that you won’t want to miss! Keep your eye on our announcements and convention schedule page for the latest information on our convention appearances, panels, and announcements.
