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.
The new D.C. is here! CIRCUS starts down a new (similar) path with D.S. -Dal Segno-, while the staff from Himawari returns for FrontWing’s all-ages title ISLAND. MadoSoft’s love comedy Wagamama High Spec also comes out this month in case the anime piqued your interest. My interest is completely in Tinkle Position’s Onii-chan, Kiss no Junbi wa Mada Desu ka?! My body is 100% ready!
A fairly busy month with lots to choose from and yet only a few worth choosing at all.
It’s a busy month with many hyped games coming out, highlighted by Lose’s RailRoad-love Maitetsu. The game version of Minato Soft’s Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya o Mezasu comes out this month, while ensemble’s protagonist once again finds himself in a skirt in Otome ga Irodoru Koi no Essence. Astronauts Sirius’s Dungeon of Regalias ~Haitoku no Miyako Ishgalia~ should appeal to RPG fans, while SILKY’s PLUS WASABI seeks to match the quality of their previous work with the suspenseful and mysterious Akeiro Kaikikan.
Lots of releases, sure. Some looked forward to? That’s nothing new. Are they any good? Eh, this month? Probably not. There may be some games with unique elements and others with laid back traditional safe zone appeal but they all swing, miss, and hit themselves in the face with the bat in one way or another. I hope that one day the companies which make eroge realize gimmicks don’t make a game better, they often make it worse. Hoping for idiots to not notice and buy inferior products with little effort put into them does not make for a good business model.
Cats working in a cafe. Girls working in a cafe. Stray cat taken in and given shelter. Abandoned girl accepted into a community. Is there a feline trend going on this month? NEKO WORKs’ Nekopara vol.2 Shimai Neko no Sucre is much anticipated, but HARUKAZE’s Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart is also surprisingly funny. The fandisc Otome Riron to Sonogo no Shuuhen -Belle Époque- and CUBE’s Mamiya-kunchi no Itsutsugo Jijou are also sure to please. There should be plenty to keep you busy this month. How purrfect~!
Zen seems to be MIA again. There’s not much green in winter.
Ok, so completely my bad this time. In my defense though I was playing an MMO. One of those “Eh, I know I should work on the post but I’ll just play for an hour first!” moments followed by surprise when I realized it was 6 am. And even though I had this post finished over two weeks ago in MMO time that’s only 5 minutes ago.
Happy new year! There’s not much to look forward to this month, so it’s probably a good time to catch up on your backlog. Leading the way is Nitro+’s action-packed TOKYO NECRO and ninetail’s RPG sequel GEARS of DRAGOON 2. There’s also a meddling protagonist in Studio Ryokucha’s Hanikami CLOVER and a meddling committee in GIGA’s Amaekata wa Kanojo Nari ni.. If you want more Ryukishi07, there’s the horror doujin title Iwaihime.
The delay this month was entirely my fault, so sorry about that folks. Besides forgetting that the December post existed, I was running around towards the end of last month. So that happened. As far as the new year of eroge is concerned… We are off to quite a lousy start. If you are lucky there may be one or two games worth playing in January, otherwise pretend its still 2015 and finish off those games.
The winter season upon us and Azarashi Soft offers another snow-capped romantic tale in Amakano -Second Season-. You may also take the time to pass on life’s lessons to your dear imoutos in Galette’s Onii-chan Teacher ~Himitsu no Jugyou o Kibou Shimasu!~. If you’re living in the Southern hemisphere, maybe something summer-themed like Parasol’s QUINTUPLE☆SPLASH will tickle your fancy. Spend the end of the year with the ones you love!
Note: Zen seems to be having internet problems (or he’s just hiding from me and playing Fallout 4), so he’ll post his comments when he’s around.
There’s plenty of anticipation over the new FrontWing title created by the Grisaia staff, Hatsuru Koto Naki Mirai Yori, while Hulotte’s Yomesagashi ga Hakadorisugite Yabai. promises to make your heart aflutter. In addition to Digital Cute’s delayed Tincle★Twinkle Festival!, SAMOYED SMILE’s Samidare Growing Up! and Jitaku Studio’s Naderebo! should be fun and comedic. If you want to play something rare, how about Clochette’s Koko Kara Natsu no Innocence? They’re not all balloons anymore!
So, someone needs to stop Micchi from playing MMOs ever again. Else this is what happens. For my part, stuff at the end of the month. As far as the actual releases go, mostly filled with meh, some eh.., and one or two whoohoos.
