Another Tsuyokiss and fortissimo game? Well, it’s not the only loop happening this month, as GLacé’s Timepiece Ensemble will feature that plot device prominently. Debo no Su has a rare real-time strategy SLG coming out: Senjou no Folklore. For those who are more interested in magic, check out Whirlpool’s Magicalic⇔Sky High and Lump of Sugar’s Sekai to Sekai to Mannaka de. I know I will.
Tis the season for coal in our eroge stockings it would seem. Not much released this month at all let alone much worth playing, a few games here and there may surprise readers but for the most part a bleak and dreary month, can only hope next month turns out better.
Having an imouto makes you more popular. It also makes this month a lot more interesting, but then again anything beats having only 7 releases like last month. ensemble presents their third title with a trap protagonist with Sakura Mau Otome no Rondo, while you can enjoy a period of popularity under your imouto’s watchful (and jealous) eyes in Hulotte’s Imouto no Okage de Motesugite Yabai.. There’s also plenty of parenting guidance available in ALcot Honey Comb’s Aka-san to Kyuuketsuki and Chuable Soft’s Wagaya no Himegami-sama.
“Having an imouto makes you more popular.” seems to be the conclusion of most games this month. Just goes to show not all ideas are theory of relativity. In some ways I am kind of glad this month is so full of the sisterphile games, with so many sooner or later the industry will try another gimmick to avoid the constant competition. Just as a candle burns out faster the hotter it is, the more of these crappy siblings we get out of the way the sooner things can go back to normal with people making decent games for more than just a “Moe” child calling the protagonist onii-chan.
Are you ready for the Heart Link? PULLTOP’s Cocoro@Function! should be everyone’s top pick in this light month. Let’s hope that it will maintain the high quality from their previous award-winning game Konosora. LOSE makes everyone happy with more lolis in its sequel Monobeno -happy end-. Popular comedy Green Green gets a remake from OVERDRIVE, while Ricotta follows up the Walkure Romanze anime with its sequel, Walkure Romanze More&More. It may be a small list, but there’s some great games here.
Sad, sad month, not only are the games not just bland, but outright bad, on top of which there are so very few of them. It takes a month like this to appreciate all those months were nothing special comes out and the whole list feels generic. I know I tend to complain about how cookie cutter games are much of the time, but please bring that back before we see more months like this.
SAGA PLANETS’ Karumaruka＊Circle highlights this month’s releases, as they try to assure their fans that the quality of their stories will not decline following the departure of scenario writer Niijima Yuu. One thing that’s for sure though is that an oniichan will do anything for their imouto, including going to a girls’ school like in Chuable Soft’s Noblesse of Rouge, saving parallel worlds in Macaron Soft’s Imouto Spiral, or spending equal time with all ‘imoutos’ in Rosebleu’s Ichiban Ja Nakya Dame Desu ka? and Galette’s Oniichan Sharing. There’s also a remake of ALICESOFT’s Rance 01 -Hikari o Motomete- for those who weren’t into eroge back then… which is pretty much all of you.
A sad month for most who love to read a good eroge as it is full of swarms of rabid little siblings consuming all elder brothers in their path, rehashes of older games, and continuations of ongoing series. I wish only for a few games here and there that are not so identical to each other the feeling of them all being stamped from the same mold lingers throughout the game. Actually at this point I would go for some variance in the characters alone, not necessarily new but some less used designs at least would be nice to see now and again. Sadly each new month finds pleasure in betraying my innocent hopes and dreams by churning out prefabricated eroge content each more alike than the last.
All the eroge companies seem to be focusing on their Comiket merchandise as there’s not many games this month. It’s an all-ages game, but propeller’s Negai no Kakera to Hakugin no Agreement should be an exciting action-packed read. Liar-soft’s Ourai no N’gha-Kthun: Shining Night and Minato Carnival’s Tsujidou-san no Virgin Road are sure to please fans of the series. Other than those, there’s just some games about tentacles, bladder control, voyeurism and cosplay 4P.
A selection so poor I could piss on it. Maybe a bad decision as apparently that would get some people all hot and bothered, and maybe summoned by a loli to another world hoping I would piss on her too. Maybe it is just because of the complete drought of sanity this month, but it has been awhile since I have seen some of the horrible and insane ideas for games manage to find a slow enough month to make it into the list that usually tries to ignore worthless nukige.
It’s been a while since YuzuSoft has released a title and I’m sure most people are eager to get their hands on Amairo＊IsleNauts. The lighthearted setting on a floating island isn’t the only one for this month as Heart’s Koisaku Miyako ni Ai no Yakusoku o also has the same setting. If you’re looking for a promising story, check out COSMIC CUTE’s Gleamgarden no Shoujo about a society with witches able to bring disaster to the world. Navel’s sequel for Tsukioto, Otome Riron no Sono Shuuhen, focusing on the imouto Resona, also comes out this month. There’s an after story for Luna too, in case you’re wondering.
First I apologize for delaying the post an extra three days for being busy otherwise a dull month full of new companies and anti-gravity for things aside from girls chests. Even for the few games I will play I am not too hopeful this month sadly.
Nothing will happen if you wait, so go out and get a girlfriend in onomatope*’s Zutto Suki Shite Takusan Suki Shite, SMEE’s Fureraba or Nitro+’s Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi. If you’re interested in a unique setting, check out Cotton Soft’s Futagoza no Paradox or Sumikko’s Natsukumo Yururu. There’s also a bunch of moe nukige out this month, including lots of sticky white liquid in Escu:de’s aquatic battling Sensuibu!.
Many releases, most of which don’t appeal much to me, very charage and moege centric month with the few titles offering a bit more feeling as though they are the very same charage and moege painted a different color. Apparently it is too much to ask that they spend more than thirty seconds coming up with the story, setting, and characters for a new game these days. Ah well, here’s hoping next month is better, at least with eroge you never have to wait too long for a new batch of fresh hope ready to be dashed to arrive.
Magic is in the air this spring, with Lump of Sugar’s Magical Charming! and Parasol’s Yumekoi both coming out. The much-awaited finale to FrontWing’s trilogy has arrived with Grisaia no Rakuen. If you want a good story, be sure to check out EX-ONE’s Tsukiakari Lunch or Tigre’s Reminiscence. Oh, you want imoutos instead? How about some Imouto Paradise 2 from MOONSTONE Cherry?
A surprisingly decent month for all the pretty pretty princess games on the list. There still manages to be a few picks worth the time, as well as a few others that could go either way. Personally I am probably going to marathon the Grisaia trilogy now that it is finally completed and I have no need to question what comes next. Otherwise there are entirely too many little sisters this month, leading me to believe the best gift a firstborn son could give his parents is a pack of condoms.
The arrival of spring can only mean the blossoming of new love and the return of D.C.. CIRCUS’ much-anticipated D.C.III R X-rated will allow you to get to know your fellow Kazami/Kazamidori Gakuen classmates much better. Make a girlfriend in hibiki works’ LOVELY×CATION or ASa Project’s Hitotsu Tobashi Renai (although beware of love triangles!). SLG enthusiasts will have their hands full with Eushully’s Madou Koukaku, while those looking for a little magic may wish to check out Yonaki Uguisu’s Unmei Yohou o Oshirase Shimasu. There’s something here for everyone!
A busy month full of somewhat almost borderline decent titles and a few probably so bad they will need warning labels for the potential health risks. Likewise there are a few games that perhaps by some miracle granted by the eroge gods will be blessed enough to bring about a diamond in the rough. In the end it could have been a better month and could have been much worse, after a winter drought of decent titles even some of the average games are starting to look better by the month.
This month is quite uninteresting as it seems like many companies are settling for an April release date instead. If it wasn’t for delays for games like COSMIC CUTE’s LOVESICK PUPPIES and UnisonShift Blossom’s Ryuusei☆Kiseki, we’d only be left with makura’s Himawari no Kyoukai to Nagai Natsuyasumi. Fandisks, adaptations and remakes round out the rest of this month’s titles.
The sheer number of titles delayed from previous months padded out the scanty ten or so actual releases just enough to make a list that can actually be called such. Not much of interest this month but that just gives us an extra month to work through all the February releases, yay.
