I was going to use this for a statistics post and I probably still will, but this list has been sitting here for a long time. The original intent was to gather all the VNs and dating sims on crowdfunding platforms to analyse the common aspects of those that succeeded or failed and then project a sort of “minimum stuff to do” list or “expected” list for future crowdfunding campaigns.
You can use it more to gawk at the massively overfunded games and wonder where all the magic comes from, though.
This is not intended to be a complete list, but I hope it got all the games that still have pages up.
Sudden Jisei sale. o_o In case you haven’t heard, a super typhoon recently passed through the Philippines. It’s kind of scary for me, because I was just in the Philippines two weeks ago in some of the cities that the super typhoon passed through.
I’d like to help all our friends and fans in the Philippines, so to that end, all the money made from sakevisual sales this week (November 9-16, 2013) will be donated via Global Giving.
For anyone who’s new here, sakevisual has a series of supernatural murder mystery games: Jisei, Kansei, and Yousei. They’ve won awards and stuff, and I’ve been told the characters in it are sexy, so surely that’s a bonus. (Also, the art’s really nice and they’re fully voiced.)
If you’re strapped for cash, here’s a 15% off code: CKTE00028 It works on any or all of the games.
For Halloween weekend Auro and I have released a short and rather dark otome game called Nachtigal, which is a “pay what you want”-ware game that you can buy (or download for free). We also have a digital artbook available that was designed by Auro.
Nachtigal tells the story of Miranda Namatgira, a bright college student who travels to Belgium for a holiday. One evening, she loses track of time while sight-seeing and becomes lost in the woods. Just as she’s about to consider camping outdoors for the night, Miranda happens upon a hauntingly beautiful castle. She decides to venture inside, but nothing could have prepared her for the bloody sight she beholds there…or for the two vampires who capture her.
The game has two love interests and six endings in total. We are trigger/content warning for mild amounts of gore, violence and suicide in the bad endings.
