So Im pretty sure Ive mentioned on here before that I work for a VN company. I know I havent really been forthcoming on details other than that (even after like, a bunch of pings from RC) but thats mostly because I didnt really want to say much more about what Im doing or who Im working for until the studio released something that I worked on.
...Which really just tells you why Im posting about this right away, but this is as good a segue as any:
So Watercress Studios,
the VN company I write for (with a proper/updated list of games here
) elected to particpate in the itch.io Maximun Monster Month
and after a month of hard work managed to complete and upload a kinetic visual novel (submitted sixteen minutes and thirty-two seconds before the deadline) named Ah! My Girlfriend is a Demon Summoned from the Depths of Hell!
a game which I played a role in writing. Its short, it's free, and it's something I want to advertise to you guys since I helped write it and since I think it might be something you guys appreciate!
Just a couple of things:
- Before anyone asks, no, its not that kind of game. Although the title and the games anime influence might make you think it's something like a porn game, it
isnt. The primary genre of the VN is comedy and although there are elements of romance in the novel, nothing of any sexual nature is present within the game.
- However, if you still feel slightly skeeved out - or if you would like to see a more serious story from this studio - thats
mostly fine, and I would recommend you read either Palinurus or Our Home if you would still like to read stuff from the studio Im a part of - both are primarily serious in tone and offer stories that I would say are fairly good..
- Just of note, the current state of release has provided us issues with missing voice lines that can cause display issues and/or crashes. Although we are trying to fix the problem as quickly as possible, I would recommend you save as often as you can and report any issues with missing voice lines - the first issue seems to happen during the scene within the supermarket, so be careful right around that point.
Other than that, I have nothing. Download link here
as well as above. Play the game! Tell us what you think! We put a ton of time/effort into it so we would like to see people enjoy what we made with that!
(In addition, I made a blog entry where I talk further about my experiences with creating the game and working with the company. It can be found here,
if youre interested. Happy playing!)
