Don’t dwell on the reduced number of games of the previous month, we’ve got plenty of promising games on the way! Live with an imouto android in minori’s TRINOLINE and seek a happy end for a tragedy in Uguisu Kagura’s Suisou Ginka no Istoria. Gods will want you to worship them in Clochette’s Haruru Minamo ni! or perhaps they will come to help support you in your quest for love in HULOTTE’s Kamidanomi Shisugite Ore no Mirai ga Yabai.. If you just want some quality ichaicha, look no further than eRONDO’s Koinosu☆Ichacolize.
A month that is filled with mostly deceptively sub par games sadly. The majority are reliant on gimmicks to try and hook people into a purchase. On the other hand the few that are not are either nukige or fandisks. Only one game made it past the Zen filter this month, sad days.
You want an eroge that looks like Gochiusa? New company Recette is happy to serve up the sweet Shugaten! -sugarfull tempering-. You want Nekopara, but with ninjas? Whirlpool comes to the rescue with NEKO-NIN exHeart. There’s quite a few imitations in this month’s short list, but at least there’s some promising titles, like IRODORI’s jidaigeki detective story Ouka Sabaki.
Short but not very sweet month. At least if you like real cane sugar and not that artificial plastic sugar. If you like cheap imitations then boy is this the month for you. A celebration of Chinese new year I suppose.
What should you expect from a new year of eroge? Perhaps more of the same, with popular artists Korie Riko and Chikotam lending their craft to Cabbage Soft’s Hoshikoi＊Tinkle and Parasol’s Kanojo to Ore no Lovely Day, respectively. There’s also NekoNekoSoft’s Lamune 2, a continuation of their series dating back to 2003. It may also be the year of the osananajimi, with two mid-priced titles where they are the sole heroines: Campus’s Fu’un to Kou’un to Koi Uranai no Tarot and Azarashi Soft’s Aikagi.
A new year. Though to be fair at the time of writing this, it is still December. So I guess with thoughts of the future I’ll say this much. Someone needs to tell the Japanese in general, though especially the eroge industry to change things up year to year. We get it, your copy paste abilities are truly unparalleled, please level up your other skills.
It has felt like there haven’t been as many games out lately, but 2016 is ending with a bang with enough for every day till Christmas. There’s detective stories like MiTi’s Hoshifuru Yoru no Farnese and Azurite’s Shinsou Noise ~Jushin Tantei no Jikenbo~. There’s ‘romance comedies’ like Sumikko Soft’s Akiyume Kukuru and Windmill’s Hatsukoi Sankaime. There’s death and trauma galore in Lass’s Liber_7: Eigou no Owari o Matsu Kimi e and MOONSTONE’s Honoguraki Toki no Hate Yori. Enjoy your holidays indoors!
A month of quantity over quality. I guess we were all bad children in 2016 and are getting coal in our stockings. With this being the last month of the year I can only reminisce and think that all in all it was a rather disappointing year. Ah well better luck next year guys.
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.
