Today we’re proud to announce six new titles, and two new partners!
Our first brand-new announcement comes from our new partner Purple software! Featuring a top-notch voice cast, comes Hapymaher!
What is real? What is just a dream? How can you be certain one is not the other? When dreams seem real and reality fades into a dream, where does the truth lie? For Tohru Naitou, a young man forced to experience lucid dreams when he rests, that question is not an easy one. Though his only rest from the nightmare is exhaustion, a girl claims she can put an end to them––but is she real? Or is it all a happy nightmare?
Next, we have more all of our yuri fans–the newest title in the A Kiss For The Petals franchise, The New Generation!
The girls of Saint Michael’s annex have always admired and looked up to lovely young ladies of the main campus. So naturally, they blossom with newfound excitement when they hear of the main campus’ Best Couples poll. Though eager to cast their votes, it also makes them wonder–who are the Best Couples of the annex? This brand-new title in the Petals franchise introduces a trio of new couples with love blooming in the air.
Our next announcement comes from our new partner, 3rd Eye! Winner of the 2015 Moe Game Awards for Scenario, Sorcery Jokers will be coming to both MangaGamer and Steam in full HD!
If the world you knew changed overnight, would you be the same? With new powers suddenly at your fingertips, would you do what was right? Twelve years ago, when magic awakened in this world, many faced that question. Chaos reigned as crime waves surged and the government sought to control, shape, and harness this new power. Through their research, society gained Magitronics, powerful tools and conveniences powered by magic, and an Academy for the training of new Casters. Yet even now, others known as OutCasts refuse to bend to the government’s control, using their powers as they wish. Which is the proper use of magic? Which faction would you agree with?
Explore this lengthy, battle-action story across six different perspectives, with new scenes and new opportunities opening up as you delve deeper into each character’s life!
Of course, we wouldn’t forget our friends at liarsoft either! This time we’ll be bringing you Thomas Edison’s tale in the predecessor to Gahkthun of the Golden Lighting––Sona-nyl of the Violet Shadows!
The fifth entry in Liarsoft’s Steampunk Series is a mysterious fairy-tale in which fantasy and reality intertwine. The story unfolds from the perspectives of two women: one who travels through the ruins of Engine City New York, destroyed in an unexplained disaster some years before;
and one who finds herself in an underground world with a purple sky, where the “vanished” city still stands.
The central focus of the tale is Lily, a girl devoid of memories who sets off through the bizarrely transformed “Underground New York.” Driven by her determination to reach the “ends of the sky,” she travels through this dangerous world accompanied by an enigmatic young man known as A.
In the course of her long and difficult journey, they meet many of the city’s inhabitants, and fend off the attacks of strange and terrifying monsters.
What lies at the end of the road Lily travels? How is she connected to the woman exploring the ruins on the surface? And why was New York destroyed? In the course of their journeys, many mysteries will be unraveled…
Our last two announcements both come from our partners, Alicesoft, as well as their infamous Rance series––Rance VI and Rance 5D!
In Rance 5D, a standalone episode in the series, Rance goes adventuring with his slave girl, Sill, and his pet, Athena 2.0, in order to recoup all the money he’s blown! Their travels lead them down a dungeon where they get lost and wander into a mysterious town full of youkai! Together they go dungeon crawling, face dice battles, capture female monsters, recruit and train the monsters they capture, all just to try and get home! There’s loads of gameplay with battles and movement determined by dice rolls, while strategic management of time, skills, and item drops can help affect your odds––no two playthroughs will be the same in Rance 5D! This fun, lighthearted title in the series makes a great intro to Rance before delving into Rance VI!
In Rance VI, Rance travels to the magical Kingdom of Zeth with Sill to take a job. However, In Zeth, mages are considered superior and all others treated as second class citizens! Indignant at his imprisonment and the discrimination turned toward him, Rance joins the resistance to lead Zeth to a revolution! With just cause on his side, Rance sets out to punish the evil mages who scorned him and expand his ever-growing harem! Jam-packed with gameplay, Rance VI is a full 3D Dungeon Crawler, with over thirty dungeons full of different monsters to face and events to trigger!
Both Rance 5D and Rance VI will be sold together in a single bundle for $34.95 this winter! Additionally, we’re working to remaster Rance VI with original assets straight from Alicesoft!
And that’s a wrap for Otakon! But that’s not the last from us this year––we still have Anime Weekend Atlanta coming up next month. Hope to see you there! You can keep up with all our new acquisitions and our convention schedule on our convention schedule & announcements page.
