A pretty short list of games, but it’s still much better than last month. Look beyond the beautiful exterior in SWEET&TEA’s Karenai Sekai to Owaru Hana. There’s even more lies in Studio Ryokucha’s Natsuiro Koi Uta and Campus’ Aki Uso -The only neat thing to do-. If you’re looking for some straight-up slapstick comedy, ASa Project’s Suki to Suki to de Sankaku Ren’ai should fit the bill.
Good month by modern standards. Sure all the best games are essentially pretty generic in concept, but compared to the majority of games these days I’ll not look a gift horse in the mouth. Point being nothing groundbreaking or special, but should be plenty of solid enjoyable eroge to play this month.
There’s a lot more games this month, but many are of arguably lower quality. The ones which stand out would be RASK’s Re:LieF ~Shin’Ai Naru Anata e~ and COSMIC CUTE’s Sora no Tsukurikata -under the same sky, over the rainbow-. There’s also the free light visual novels Tsukikage no Simulacre and Hi no Nai Tokoro ni Kemuri wa Tatanai, from Applique and Akatsuki Works, respectively.
What a painful month. The only thing more painful than a lot of boring titles is having to write about them as fast as humanly possible. Honestly I can’t think of anything I actually want to play this month, at best I may glance at a few out of sheer boredom. At least I can finish some of the games I’m in the middle of I suppose.
The highly anticipated Sen no Hatou, Tsukisome no Kouki from August highlights this short month, edging out the sequel many years in the making for Lump of Sugar’s Tayutama 2 -you’re the only one-. key has also released their latest kinetic novel Harmonia on Steam in English. Then of course, there’s more D.C. from CIRCUS: D.C.III With You.
Dull month of mostly bad games, but at least it’s slightly better than last month I guess. Thank god for a month we were so late on that the games already released, not like anyone was missing anything important.
Why is this summer so hot? Maybe it’s because people are getting fired up for GIGA’s BALDR HEART or mirai’s Hanahime＊Absolute!. For me, I’d rather cool down with a slow title like tone work’s’ Gin’iro, Haruka. There’s not too many titles to choose from this month, but that’s why they call it lazy summer days.
A month of downs, and… more downs. In fact we have a veritable syndrome of downs to deal with this August. Not only are there few games, the few games there are make me wish I was a Timenaut that could go back and abort these walking proofs as to why siblings do not work as heroines responsible for this month before they had the chance to kill my brain cells and waste my time. Also yes, it is too bloody hot here.
It’s the lowest number of releases I’ve seen in a month, but anytime there’s both YuzuSoft and SAGA PLANETS games, I’m a happy camper! Floral Flowlove and Senren＊Banka promise to be good reads, while Purple Software’s Amatsutsumi may also be a nice pick-up. All three seem to have a surprisingly strong story.
The timing for a slow month couldn’t be better with Micchi in MMO land. If there were not so few releases the games would probably have been out for a few weeks by the time this post went live! Good kids manage their addictions.
Just a light month of fandiscs and other low-priced games, along with way too many nukige. Palette Qualia’s Otome＊Domain welcomes you to the ojou-sama world as a trap, except all the ojou-samas are pretty useless. Enjoy a heartwarming moment in calme’s KARAKARA or raise your own slime girl in SofthouseChara’s Slime Musume no Sodatekata.
It must suck to be a childhood friend. Either you go missing like in Lass’s Liber_7: Eigou no Owari o Matsu Kimi e or you get murdered like in MOONSTONE’s Sakuranomori†Dreamers. Fortunately, you can escape reality by jumping into the virtual worlds of Heart’s Natsuiro Kokoro Log or mirai’s Hanahime＊Absolute!. Last but not least, Lump of Sugar’s Tayutama2 -you’re the only one- lets you reacquaint yourself with the Tayutai. Maybe you’ll pick up one as a bride!?
Great month in terms of amount of games to write about. Terrible month in terms of games worth playing. Though on the bright side months like these do help us make some progress on backlogs, which is always a nice feeling. It is nice to see some companies trying to spice up the childhood friend type heroines though, now I can’t wait till they start following the trend with those little sisters.
