There’s no Santa or reindeer this Christmas, but there’s plenty of witches, magic girls and catgirls as presents. While Navel’s Tsuki ni Yorisou Otome no Sahou 2 is likely on your wishlist, it will probably be worth your time to check out Uguisu Kagura’s Kami no Ue no Mahoutsukai. And of course, there’s NEKO WORKs’ trilingual Nekopara! Doujin games are the future of eroge!
Not the most Christmasy December by any stretch, which is a little disappointing even if I dislike those games. On the plus side there is not much to worry about gifting yourself with on a slow month filled to the brim with superficial games churned out by companies looking for a quick buck. Kind of sad when the doujin games are better quality than most of the actual releases.
Another packed month awaits erogamers, highlighted by sprite’s high-flying Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm. It also seems to be a month with lots of transfer students, including the son of the demon king in Windmill’s Harukaze Sensation, a trap diva in ensemble’s Otome ga Kanaderu Koi no Aria, and a loli that wants nothing to do with you in Chuable Soft’s Zannen na Ore-tachi no Seishun Jijou. Me? I’ll be busy playing with my smartphone app in PULLTOP’s fandisc Cocoro@Function! NEO.
A large amount of releases does not mean there will be a large number of good games worth playing sadly, Oh how I wish that were the case though. Unfortunately this month has more mediocre games than anything else. A few games so terrible they make me physically cringe, but nothing present that radiantly glows with an aura of must have.
The eroge world is full of mysteries. Why do aliens keep attacking Earth? Why do the protagonist’s parents always end up overseas if they’re not dead? This month you can explore the island of illusion in Lump of Sugar’s Unmei Senjou no φ, solve a series of disappearances in Cabbit’s Hakoniwa Logic, or discover the school’s seven mysteries in Lass’ Mayoeru Futari to Sekai no Subete.
Pretty dull month overall, where the only games I may play are delays from previous months. The rest are either boring or just plain terrible. Oh well these months happen and at least it is short enough to meet Micchi’s preferences, better luck next month eroge industry.
Have you ever wanted to build a rocket? Become a hero in a fantasy world? Soar in the sky like a bird? There are endless possibilities in eroge and you’ll always be surrounded by bishoujos while doing it. So, enjoy the much-awaited Minamijuujisei Renka by Studio Ryokucha, or sprite’s sky-high drama Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm. The imoutos in Galette’s Onii-chan, Migite no Shiyou o Kinshi Shimasu! will gladly accompany you.
Have you ever deleted spam mail? Played an RPG? Rode in a plane? There may be infinite possibilities limited only by how far our imagination can go, but eroge are determined to convince you that boobs are all anyone needs to imagine, boobs of all sizes, shapes, colors, and covers. Maybe one day the people in charge of writing these games will imagine that there may be something beyond school boobs, fantasy boobs, drama boobs, tragedy boobs, etc. boobs, and actually give us background and development to support their boobs.
It wasn’t looking so good earlier, but at least we got some games this month after all the July delays. We’ve got magic girls, time travellers, human-eating mermaids, demon fighters, aliens, and a God in the form of a bunny. Enjoy an exciting summer vacation in sweet light’s Himawari!!, or help a sickly heroine in AkabeiSoft3’s Dekinai Watashi ga, Kurikaesu.. If you’re looking for a cute chara-ge, keep an eye on Marmalade’s PRIMAL×HEARTS and Parasol’s Harenochi Kitto Nanohana Biyori. Remember: cuteness isn’t a problem, it’s the solution!
Filler month, with nothing major or especially noteworthy coming out, giving most plenty of time to work on their backlog until the next exciting episode of eroge Z.
There’s quite a few RPG/SLGs this month, including Debonosu Works’ Gigai no Alruna, side-B’s Märtopia and ALICESOFT’s Beat Angel Escalayer Reboot. CLOCKUP’s much anticipated Fraternite should be an intriguing read, while FAVORITE’s AstralAir no Shiroki Towa promises to warm our hearts. For me, I’m definitely going to enjoy May-Be Soft’s whacky gender-bending Change!.
Sigh, this month well, it was a long one, and a very very boring month. The one area eroge overachieves anymore is in how much effort they put into underachieving in the most efficient ways possible. I suppose this is what happens when you limbo with lolis, the bar gets set far too low for anyone else to have any fun. For people who only care about the H scenes or if the characters are shaped more or less the same as their favored cookie cutter may find some games to enjoy this month, but if you want something to enjoy the story, development of the characters and setting, so you may enjoy the process of the game itself then… well maybe next month, or the one after that, or sometime in the future….
Let’s fall in love! I’ve definitely fallen in love with Palette’s Koi ga Saku Koro Sakura doki. Let the love fairy Tina make your dreams come true! There’s also a ring that makes you popular in Etoiles’ Koi DOKi, which is very reminiscent of Moteyaba. The loli levels are also high this month, with Iris’ Shuki Shuki Daishuki!!, Galette’s Chiccha Love Apart and Puchi Parfait’s Niina-chan Lovely Life tempting all you lolipedofins.
Pedo paradise month apparently. Otherwise just a bunch of nukige, and generic titles hiding behind artwork. Although there is at least one game I can be interested in, marking this as a better month than the average over the last year or so, I really miss when people cared about the games they made beyond justification for H content.
