Naïve Sprites have launched a Kickstarter for their loosely Alice in Wonderland-inspired otome game, A Very Important Date (with a demo for Windows, Mac and Linux users being available via their itch.io page). At the time of writing, the campaign has raised $1,187 by 41 backers with 45 days to go until its conclusion (which is on 05/1, 2017).

 

Altabe Studio have re-released their demo of E-Depth Angel: Pinocchio’s Murder for Windows, Mac and Linux. [NOTE: News paraphrased via English Visual Novel’s post.]

 

In the 24/11/2016 issue of Famitsuu Weekly magazine’s Famitsuu Cross Review (released on 10/11/2016), Code: Realize’s fandisc Code: Realize ~Shukufuku no Mirai~ and Torikago no Marriage’s all-ages PSV port Torikago no Marriage ~Hatsukoi no Tsubasa~ were reviewed. ~Shukufuku no Mirai~ received 32 (8/8/8/8), netting it a Famitsuu Gold award while ~Hatsukoi no Tsubasa~ received 28 (7/7/7/7), leaving it without accreditation. For those unfamiliar with the Famitsuu Cross Review scoring system, it involves a panel of 4 game critics reviewing the same game with each critic giving it a score from 0~10. This makes 40 the highest possible score, with awards of distinction being given to games earning: 30~31/40 = Famitsuu Silver, 32~34/40 = Famitsuu Gold and 35+/40 = Famitsuu Platinum.

 

R18+ otome brand company aromarie have revamped and modernised their website. However, there is neither no news of a new project nor news regarding their upcoming Chou no Doku Hana no Kusari + fandisc double pack.

  1. kiri

    Wand of fortune r2 already has a release date, on 3/2017 I forgot the day (、ン、) and fortissimo’ll be out in 2017, that’s what on the new sylph cover

    • Hello Kiri!

      Thanks so much for the source and pardon my late reply.

      I do recall another site saying that it’d be released on 16/17th March 2017, though I didn’t go through with it because I was waiting for more reliable sources/confirmation that I can see for myself and/or share beforehand.

      Same with Fortissimo- I’ve been thinking and also heard a couple of times that it’d be a 2017 game, but same as above! =)

      Thanks for reading and for the info!

  2. Eleanor

    I know this info came out after you published this post, but DiaLovers Lost Eden is going to be released on Feb 16,2017! 😊😊😊
    Also thank you so much for these posts. They are so helpful! I look forward to them every week!

    • Hi Eleanor! Please pardon my late response. (You have a lovely given name, BTW.)

      Yes, that information definitely did come out after I published Issue #40, so it’d certainly be included in Issue #41!

      And you’re very welcome. It’s always nice to hear that my posts are helping people and bringing a little happiness in their lives!

      Thank you for your input and support! I hope you’ll continue to find my posts useful. =)
