Picked up Highway Blossoms on Summer Sale after Steam recommended it to me whilst I was looking for any KS full chorus news.

It was pretty good, I'm warming up to Western VN. Is it as good as they get?
>>
>>2645726
Like JVN they vary and most are terrible, but it's a lot easier to encounter the terrible ones since awful amateur JVNs never get here.

It's not the absolute best yuri EVN but it's not bad.

>>2645751
>It's not the absolute best yuri EVN but it's not bad.

Just quietly, what is?
>>
>>2645756
A Little Lily Princess, as long as you don't mind that it's not H.
To my surprise it looks like the actual top-rated (if you disregard the popularity weighting) yuri EVN on VNDB is a little free game called Her Tears Were My Light.
>>
>>2645726
>>2645756
For my money, Blackberry Honey is the best western yuri VN. Decent art, excellent music and good writing with a classic victorian setting. My only problem with it: it's kinetic, one pairing only, there is some heavy relationship progress with one other girl but her character never gets any kind of resolution. I forgive ebihime though. The game is good as it is.

The problem common in western VN is western writers trying to ape Japanese settings and characters and end up creating insufferable weeabo trash. So look for anything that avoids the High School romance shitpit. Another VN I like although it's not explicit yuri is The Last Birding. I got it because Hella Yuri wrote about it and was very impressed with the art, the interface, the music and the writing. It's short but well paced. I didn't feel it needed to be longer. Fair warning if you choose to play it: it's a tragic story with bittersweet endings at best and some dark content. Shame the author chose to not make the romance more explicit because it's there but SUBTEXT ONLY kek. "intense friendship between two female characters" is what Hella Yuri wrote, girlship, if you will.
>>
>>2645781
>Her Tears Were My Light
I played it, and everything else from its author. There is hardly anything there. It's a cutesy little tone piece at best.

I liked how it looked in the catalogue, so I'll buy it. I feel kind of spoiled now though, coming from fully voiced and cheevo having highway blossoms, and I am *still* chuckling at how the second sex scene went.

Thanks! I want to batch buy to cut down the international transaction fee sting, I already have love ribbon, is any of starlight Vega, asphyxia, A.I.dol, Seabed or demon reject: Toko worth reading? Nurse love addiction seems like it steers too far from the nurse love and into the crazy.

I liked SV and I have yet to read Seabed but I remember it getting a good reception.
>>
>>2645839
>Nurse love addiction seems like it steers too far from the nurse love and into the crazy.
It really doesn't. Please read it.
>>
>>2645839
I found Starlight Vega to be kind of boring. The plot is pure nonsense I found myself skipping through most of it to get to the romantic parts. I never finished asphyxia. I wasn't thrilled with the characters and from what I read it doesn't go anywhere good. But it may be worth giving it a chance. Demon Reject: Toko I don't know about. I avoided it because of "ch 0 - prelude". 3 years later still no chapter 1 but it looks like the devs are updating the news page and intend to finish it sometime. A.I.dol looks like pure trash and from what I read there is not much yuri in it anyway, consider Strawberry Vinegar instead. It's pretty cute. Nurse Love Addiction is great. It never strays away from Nurse Love, it's just the love part that gets a bit intense.
>>
>>2645839
Starlight Vega is cute. Not deep, don't think about it too hard, but fun while it lasted.
AIdol is not yuri.
Asphyxia has a lesbian protagonist but isn't really a yuri game. It's fine if you like ebihime's writing and aren't expecting a romance.
Seabed is rumored to be great, deep, and depressing.
I did not like reject demon toko, it's super short and a part 1 that may or may not ever be continued and a lot of it doesn't make much sense. If it's very cheap and you dig the art, ymmv.
>>
>>2645839
Nurse Love Addiction gets crazy but it doesn't steer that far from the nurse love, also it's great and you should play it anyway.
>>
>>2645839
What do you mean by "nurse love"? The characters are nurses and the romantic relationships are the most developed among all the game you listed, sans Seabed. They also have substantial hospital scenes and dealing with patients. Unless you mean "medical drama," then this is not it. The characters could easily have another occupation and it wouldn't change the plot much. The nurse theme is therefore just flavour and not the main meat of the mystery.

As for crazy, it's mainly just startling endings and not "acid trip the entire journey" variety. Meaning 95% of it is a normal romantic drama/SoL, with some bizzare but satisfying conclusions. In fact, its true end is the happiest end I've seen any yuri girl managed to achieve.
>>
>>2645893
>its true end is the happiest end I've seen any yuri girl managed to achieve.
I don't believe there is an official true end, but I assume you mean Sakuya's good ending? That's what I think of as the true end.
>>
>>2645914
There is no true end other than that all the good endings are good and you need to get all of them to get the whole story. My favorite end is Nao's because of the vomit play
>>
>>2645926
You are a disturbed individual but Nao is still best girl
>>
>>2645954
Normally I'd agree it's gross but that scene was so touching. I believe the line went something like "I'd never think Nao's puke was gross" - so beautiful. Yuuna would be proud.

>Ladykiller in a Bind
Hated by myself since the dev decided to put a het rape scene where the lesbian protagonist screams in pleasure from cock. Or if you don't want to see that you can suck the cock of a crossdresser and remark how cute he is while he cums. I'm butthurt about it since it was marketed as 100% lesbian content for months before release.

Though from what I know the dev removed the het rape scene, so it should be safe if you if you really can't resist
>>
>>2645963
You cannot mention Ladykiller here. It was a whole controversy behind it (and with reasons)

Flowers is fine if you can read a, for now, unfinished mistery VN with a lot of translation errors and typos because JAST is shit and tried to fix a unreadable mess in two or three months (the poor translator that had to fix it did what she could). Don't expect the rest of the series to get a translation in a reasonable timeframe.

Black Closet is cool, nothing espectacular, but it has its moments and its a lot more solid that what i expected initially.
>>
>>2645963
Ladykiller has two fully-/u/ routes but if you don't devote yourself to one girl or the other you end up becoming a cockwhore.

Flowers has a lovely atmosphere. You can't really play it as a 'mystery' game, though, because the mysteries make no sense in English and are sometimes factually wrong, also it's Chapter 1 of a story so it ends without resolution. Play it with a walkthrough, don't try to play it by itself.

Black Closet is not a VN, you will have to get the hang of the mystery gameplay in order to get with the girls. There are a huge number of dialog options, if you like interactive conversations.
>>
>>2645971
>mistery VN with a lot of... typos

Hmmm

I'm not a native speaker and sometimes make typos because I confuse the spelling of some words. Sue me, anon.
>>
>>2645969
>>2645967
>>2645971
>>2645976
So that's a definitive no on Ladykiller, then. If there's not going to be a timely followup for Flowers, I think I'll skip that, as well. I'll probably get the Black Closet and Lily Princess bundle, though.

Thanks for the tips, onee-samas.

>>2645914
Yes. Regardless of personal favourites, it's clear who was the main LI and what was the intended true end.

I found Blackberry Honey's story to be extremely two-faced and frustrating. I didn't completely regret buying it but the story is so tone deaf that it hurt. I wouldn't really recommend it without that caveat. Strawberry Vinegar was the more enjoyable ebi-hime game for me.

>>2645839
Starlight Vega's Melody route alone would be worth the price to me, the rest of the routes were a fun bonus.

Also you really should get Nurse Love Addition for its quality alone. It is one of my favorites VNs on steam among Kindred Spirits, Fatal Twelve, Lonely Yuri, and Flowers.

>so tone deaf

>>
>>2646094
>Lonely Yuri
not sure what this is doing in your favorites list unless it's just nostalgia for the the first time that the gates of yuri translation opened up to us
>>
>>2646098
It's hard to say without spoilers but essentially the writing takes certain scenes seriously, without lending that weight to lighter scenes. The story doesn't use the combination to its benefit.

spoiler version: One character is a downright bitch, another is too but softens slightly throughout the story. There is no real comeuppance to the downright bitch, and no resolution to the softer one. It works in real life that things are left unresolved, but in terms of the story it was very unsatisfying and makes having to slog through their story (which makes up nearly all of the game) for no payoff a chore.

>>2646106
You're probably right. I just looked through my steam library and felt the urge to not leave it out because I have a soft spot for it.
>>
>>2645781
>Her Tears Were My Light
Literally the only yuri EVN I liked (since the usual overly rapid western vidya storytelling just irks me to no end), it was indeed very cute and the story/mechanics were clever enough considering how short it was.

Madoka inspiration was blatant, but that didn't detriment the experience. I even paid actual money for it.
>>
>>2646130
>overly rapid western vidya storytelling
I like my stories a lot faster than many JVNs but I've been poking at Starlight Drifter and I keep wanting to scream SLOW DOWN at it. It's better than I expected for a Dharker game (which isn't saying much) but it feels like watching someone try to summarise a novel while talking at high speed and running from point to point.
>>
>>2645839
Get Seabed and Kindred Spirits for two great yuri games that are very different from each other.

Though worth saying, Seabed is slice of life for the most part, so only go there if you can enjoy walls of text about everyday life and foreign travels and don't mind the payoff to come late.

I need to find the time to read it again, now that it has a remastered edition, I probably missed a lot of early foreshadowing on the first go.
>>
>all this talk about JAST timeframe for Flowers

Imagine how long it will take them to translate Katahane, and that already has a perfectly serviceable translation.

>>
>>2646094
>>2646111
I did mention in my recommendation that Constanse doesn't get a resolution. Which overall I only consider a minor flaw since there is enough there to make her character sympathetic. As for the other bitch, she is only a minor character her purpose is in the story is to be a bitch. Her "comeuppance" (and the reason why she is a bitch) is that she has no future besides being a house servant for the rest of her life. It's all part of the setting. I still don't understand what you mean by the story being 'two-faced'. Can you explain what you mean by certain scenes not being taken seriously?

>>2646145
Honestly didn't enjoy the game enough to remember all the specific details from when I played it over half a year ago. At the time I didn't feel that the game was genuine in telling its story because it felt that loose ends were left hanging because writing conclusive scenarios would take more effort, not because it was intending to be a realistic part of the setting. Two-faced because one moment the MC is being berated, or having a good time among rich new friends, or having to do menial tasks, getting through to a stubborn brat, having a brat fall in love with you a little bit, having sex atop olympian thighs, the end. The game didn't make me feel it took the brat seriously, the friendly maids, the rich friends, or any of them really, because in the end it didn't really change that she was magicked away from it all after a few sex scenes, which if I remember correctly also had an equally unconnected flashbackstory thrown into it. It all felt like a moment in time in her life, and it makes me wonder why I spent time observing that part of her life instead of any other. It was a fine game, it had a lot of great elements that I wanted to see more of, but it was missing the impactful story that I felt was just out of arm's reach. Like I said I played it forever ago, but that's how I felt about it at the time, more or less.

>>2646208
There aren't as many loose ends as you think. The setting is the most important part of the story because objectively, this is a story about the daily lives of maids and so much of the text is about the difficulty of this life. Most of Lori's inner monologue is her reflecting on her work, her fellow maids, her masters. It is absolutely essential. You can't just ignore it and say the game is two-faced. Lori's relationship with the other maids is primarily defined by their common role in the household and any friendship or rivalry is always overshadowed by that reality. In the eyes of their employer they're equally disposable. Like schoolchildren, their everyday dramas are ultimately of little importance. The same applies to the friendly maids. It doesn't matter how close two maids are, if one gets fired it's highly likely they won't be able to see each other again. On the other hand, Lori can't truly get close to Constance because they are separated as master and servant. Constance resents the inequality but she is powerless of changing anything. Unlike the bitch maid, she doesn't enjoy being a cruel person but her sensitivity causes her to lash out and abuse her servants. Taohua is the odd woman out in the story because favoritism separates her from the other maids and yet she is still a maid, by choice, because of her commitment to a dead person. The backstory is not unconnected because it explains why Taohua is working as a maid in the first place, why she is unlike the other maids, and why she can't fully commit to Lori at first. It's a huge part of the game. Please don't say she's just a pair of thighs and two sex scenes. In the end, it is thanks to the generosity of an old woman that she has the means to escape the life of a maid and take Lori with her. Maids are not meant to rise above their station and, as unfair as it may be, they were totally right to take that opportunity even if it meant leaving people behind.

It is, though. Just because they don't look alike, doesn't mean they're not sisters. Genetics can be very varied, even within the same nuclear family.

If you like cohabitation incest yuri then you'll probably get enjoyment out of it. It is immature at times and some anons here complain about a certain scene so if you're the type that takes issue with irrational character decisions then you may have issues with the writing. It wasn't that bad, a moment of weakness where she acts selfish instead of being a good sister, obviously expecting her sister to ruin her future just to be in an illegal romance is actually the right choice for once.

I had a blast playing it. A pure yuri incest VN with good art and good chemistry hit all my buttons.

I liked it, only ever see two characters with an invisible dad, who I felt was an authentic character given what life throws at him. I don't know if it would have been as good without the epilogue that was added.

>>2647292
I enjoyed that it teased a cop out half-sisters or not-by-blood with the blood test plot before throwing straight-up homosexual incest at you - brave!

Zoey was a bit of a bitch, especially at the one choice that matters but whatever. I was also surprised she went straight for her full-blood sister's butt hole on like, their second romp.
>>
Is any of Senran Kagura gay or just pervy?
>>
>>2647302
For sure it will likely be 100% straight, but that game looks cute anon
>>
>>2647259
I dislike it because the plot is extremely thin and inconsistent, but that's because I really want to delve more into the crunchy angst possibilities of actual rounded characters.

If you just accept that it's not meant to be a real story, just a sequence of scenes tickling this particular fetish, it's fine.

Katsuragi is very gay. I've found the series in general a bit less yuri and a bit more broadly ecchi than VDB, for a close comparison if you've played it, but the games are fun and I was pleasantly surprised at the sincerity of the plot that is there.

If you're into BDSM, absolutely. Every scene in the game involves sadomasochistic activities to some measure.

Well, yeah. The Steam version is cheaper than the Denpasoft version.
>>

It was decent, but nothing great. Short, straightforward, and entirely linear until the choice of girl at the end.
The only really remarkable thing about it was how it seems to have been written for the female protagonist and then adapted for the male, rather than the opposite, and how the sex scenes for the female MC are much longer and more explicit than the male versions.

> I will probably finish some of these before it's finished downloading.

Yep wasn't wrong, BlueberryNOVA is BlueberryOVER. 45 mintues all routes and cheevos. It was cute, but the English was clumsy enough to be jarring - it reminds me of the cliche packed half-baked DooM and Quake fanfic I used to write in primary school. The sex scenes didn't add enough to be worth going through the awkwardness of their existence, but the highlight is probably a beautiful final CG of the both route when MC realizes she's a slut and the game ends.

Overall I don't regret playing it but I do regret paying as many American dollars for it as I did.
>>
>>2646039
Just gave it a shot and it's decent. The gameplay loop consists of building a team and watching them run through a few waves of enemies while occasionally clicking a button to make them do a special move, which is fine if only because there seems to be enough depth to the team building to give you some interesting possibilities.

Yuri-wise, it's a world where men don't exist and some characters are married to each other, including the PC (even if it's just an excuse to set you up in the position required for gameplay purposes). Mind you, PC is such a non-existence that characters barely pay her existence lip service on occasion. Plot-wise, the real protagonist seems to be the PC's (underage?) wife whose regent you're playing as.
>>
>>2647569
>underage wife
picked up
>>
>>2647572
I think that's what she's supposed to be anyway. She's told she is too young to try to rebuild her clan so she decides to marry (you) even if it's just in name only and make (you) her regent.
Then, without anything more or even another scene, you're in charge of running the clan, presumably sitting at the base and doing the actual work while she's out doing plot stuff.
>>
>>2647535

Was it a yuri fic, or just some "then John was a zombie" kind of trash?

>Was it a yuri fic, or just some "then John was a zombie" kind of trash?

Literally that, but not ironic. Didn't catch yuri until highschool when I started drawing Noir fanart which has been lost to time for the good of all the peoples of earth.

Back on games, has anyone succeeded in the Phantom Delude Challenge in Valkyrie Drive: Bikkhuni?

I know there are people out there who have, but I'm certainly not one of them. I could barely manage to do one Delude, let alone multiple ones in a row. That challenge was harder than anything else in the game.

Living on the edge there, might friend.
The main games are primarily about sex, so avoid those during your break time.
>>
>>2648162
Not any worse than the content in the vanilla game but that's not saying much - there's only so much anyone can do when characters are supposed to fall in love and get married after talking together on-screen 4 times. Other than that the mod's writing is crowd-sourced so the quality will vary from one pairing to the other, but that was true in vanilla too.

I dunno what office you work at where any form of anime lesbian vn is acceptable to play during lunch break.

As long as his/her lunch break seat is private enough and he/she is playing offline on a laptop, what's the harm? For extra caution, just avoid sex scenes and you can play the wholesome part with a straight face, no worry even if a colleague suddenly appear.
>>
>>2648092
This scene still exists, which is bizarre because there's basically no reason for it. The scene itself is extremely clear that neither of you has any idea if anything sexual happened (because you were both pass-out drunk) and it never gets mentioned again. Certainly there was never any 'wow I love dick so much!' type conversation or anything like that. As I recall the protagonist openly says she doesn't think anything happened and she hopes it didn't.

I have no idea how different the game is now than before because apparently it was a big mess in the past. It's actually kind of fun? The cast seems very much skewed in the direction of bisexual women. Almost everyone who comes on board is female and immediately hits on the other girls.
>>
>>2647471

So far it's a really fun mod and all the support conversations I've unlocked were well written. I'm enjoying more than the original ones and not even only just for yuri reasons. It made enjoy some characters more, like Camilla, since the game focus too much only on certain sides of her, but her relationship with Hinoka made me love her. Not to mention it unlocks more possibilities for the player as well, since you have more romance options now.

It's like the other anon said, it's crowd-sourced so quality may vary, but I think it did good for this mod, what every yuri fan looks for yuri is different and everyone has their preferences so the variety is nice. For example, I didn't expect Sakura x Elise to be so absolutely adorable and pure.

It's a great game and if you love yuri and want to play it, that's the way to do it.

It's interesting that while Pillars of Eternity 1 has no romance you can specify that your past life was lovers with a female plot-critical NPC before your past life betrayed her and got her killed.

>https://store.steampowered.com/app/497640/Trick__Treat/
I saw this free game called Trick & Treat while looking through the steam store and it looks like it features yuri romance as a main part of the story. Anyone know if prequel paid game The Witches' Tea Party has any yuri too?

Also any opinions on the game or specifically the yuri in Knight Bewitched or Ceress and Orea? They're really cheap so I feel like impulse buying more yuri.

Eh, I imagine nowadays anime mobile games are pretty common, so I don't think an anime VN would raise a lot of eyebrows, at least if you work with a lot of young people who are into games themselves.

I get paid to watch a machine and make sure it doesn't explode all day, so I have plenty of time to play mobage on my phone. Other people do watch porn, and no one really cares what you do as long as you don't use company property to do it. I don't think I would be brave enough to play a VN that had lewd scenes with characters that look underage on the job, though. There's plenty of time at home for that kind of stuff.

The game has something of a difficulty curve. You have to put some thought into building your teams even in the fairly early chapters since you can't level your team above your own level.
While higher * characters tend have better stats, it doesn't seem that drastic a difference in practice though and even with a fairly high rarity team (I blew all the resources you're given on the gatcha already) the game is not a lot easier..

>>2648643
You could just go through the step-up thing if you wanted a guaranteed 6*.

It's much longer than that because the 8x rate gacha is not part of the tutorial so you have to play a few hours or so to get enough gems to roll.

Last Farm Sim RPG I remember backing on Kickstarter was called Wild Season, and it became abandonware.

I do think that Kickstarter has issues with game projects, especially if a dev is trying to make a game from scratch. With the all-or-nothing approach dev end up over-promising in hopes of making their project appeal to as many people as possible to get enough funds to hit their goal, but then end up not having enough funds to deliver on all their promises.

If a game 1) already had a solid foundation and a working demo, or 2) comes from with high pedigree (like Pillars of Eternity) I think it's easier to get behind a project.

Patreon is probably better for game projects since (in theory) devs can put out new builds and tweak their project based on feedback. But in reality you get devs like Winged Cloud putting out undercooked projects as quickly as possible, presumably to keep their magpie subscribers interested
>>
>>2648819
I've had good luck with back KS stuff bar the one from a large established studio, so there's no guarantees even there. 3 years later and it's apparently still in development, but iirc it's been so long they no longer even offer it on the previous gen console I originally chose for my order.

Any word about Alpha's Adventures recently? They have some of my money too.
>>
>>2648824
>Alpha's Adcentures
The last few updates about that were about physical rewards like artbook and dakimakura covers. No idea when the actual game will be out.

I backed that one KanColle-like, Victory Belles, because the devs said that (You) could Romance the shipgirls but you would be of ambiguous gender. They put out regular updates that are basically scripts of the shipgirls talking but nothing about the game in months. And these are relatively long blocks of text. So for a browser game that isn't even out, it may have more written for it than some actual related games

I only back kickstarters to build up goodwill to someday hopefully run my own.

It's just not useful or necessary with most indie game projects. Either they had the money to do the game anyway so the KS is just a preorder and you don't really lose anything by not backing it, or the project is something way out of the scope of what the developer was capable of doing on their own, which means that they're probably going to fuck up.

Kickstarter is more suited to physical products which need a minimum order in order to create a run of items.

This is also the same developer that put out two okayish yuri VNs then…

Someone fix my memory - there's a weeb game that I don't think ever got translated but it's a historical fantasy fighting game. I think before each match you fiddle with options while your character is riding on a horse. But one character is a milf who fights with a scarf or ribbon. She has the hots for a girl who wears a high ponytail? In one scene I think the milf attempts to lure the girl to a wedding type thing but the girl panics and runs when the woman offers a kiss. What am I thinking of?

I didn't get that feeling at all, the protag seemed like he/she was written by a typical sperglord who overestimates their own intelligence whilst trying to accumulate power/capital over the girls like your typical craven eyeless sado hentai brotagonist. I'll finish it because I am already pretty deep in and I want to see some filthy CGs, but it's not a good enough story to enjoy for it's own merits and so far the art, although decent, is not worth wading through the story when there is proper smut out there.

Bloodstained I also backed, but not for any hope of yuri but because I'm starved for a Castlevania type game, so it's not one I regret at all.

>How good is the yuri, though? Is it like bioware games where you get a few dialogues, then a token sex scene
Yeah, it's kind of like that. You do the quest line of your party member, every now and then you can choose flirtatious options, you can become a couple and by near the end of the game you can get a (not visually explicit) sex scene. In context it is not something big of relevant, I think it's analogue to the Mass Effect romances content-wise.

I made my last Steam Sale purchase...the only yuri thing was Tomb Raider 2013 and Shadowrun Hong Kong, i guess?
Unless GTA5 has a fem MC mod or something.
Also, i remember some soldiers in Valkyria Chronicles were gay?
Overall it was a good sale, too bad i didn't had enough dosh for some stuff like MGS5 and Xcom2, next sale i'm gonna get them.
>>
>>2649042
That was pretty gay tho...
>>
>>2649420
>the only yuri thing was Tomb Raider 2013

That's not a yuri thing.
>>
>>2649432
It is, like its is enough for the makers to get nervous enough to complete nuke Sam from the games after that.
>>
>>2649377
I think her actual name is supposed to be Sayaka, and she killed the previous Magoichi and took his title and position. I guess they decided needed some eye candy to help sell their game apart from all the fujobait.

And let us not forget Naotora Ii in Basara vs Musou.
>>
>>2649436
I'd believe them removing her, because they weren't interested in the character. I doubt it was because of gay vibes. Squeenix is full of gay vibes everywhere. Both genders. Devs were more interested in making an even worse sequel.

UNLESS! there is proof. Then I haven't said a thing.
>>
>>2649441
If that were true Jonah wouldn't be pushed as 'LARA's BFF' the way he is.
I legit believe they got completely blindsided by how the fandom took Lara and Sam, and they just panic.
Apparently she is coming back in the third game, personally i'm more interested in the games after that that are going back to Lara just getting into non-related adventure...i hope they introduce Natla and Amanda down the line too.

That violin sub-quest in the bar was a wild ride. Funny thing is I don’t think it would have made much more sense even if translated properly. I’ve pretty much lost all motivation to play after unlocking housing and seeing how disappointing it is. Maybe it gets better and more enjoyable after hundreds of hours, but I can’t be bothered. The dressing up is pretty fun, though.
>>
>>2649441
Well, it's well known that Rhianna Pratchett wanted them to get together but she got shot down. It would surprise no-one if it was confirmed that the reason they're pushing Jonah so hard and tried to write Sam out Lara's life in Rise is to get away from that association.

>>2649476
You're forgetting that Squenix Japan doesn't actually have a lot to do with its Eidos branch. Squenix JP may not give much of a shit about fan ships, but the western branch is still mostly run like any big western publisher, and I can believe that unintended lesbian overtones could make a western publisher a bit nervous.

That said, I'd be surprised if that were the overriding factor in them writing Sam out; I imagine it's mostly just shitty writing.
>>
>>2649476
Just heads up Squenix is not the maker of TR, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos are, Squenix pretty much just publishes the thing.
>>
>>2649483
SE has a say in how the game is made, however.
>>
>>2649484
For things that would hurt their brand and probably for stuff like turning Lara into Nathan Drake gameplay wise...which i guess Rhianna Pratchett heard as: Noaw Lara's has a gf like Helena just kinda moar useless.
But seriously, SE probably doesn't dictate story threads to CD and Eidos.
>>
>>2649485
I'm not saying they're telling writers what to write word for word, but they most likely have some control over things like romantic plotlines or character development going where they don't want it to go. They also are very profit-focused – as far as I remember, somebody from SE went on record saying they didn't think TR2013 was a financial success from their point of view.

Finished Catch Canvas, super shallow, bottom-teir weeaboo humor but some decent CGs and one or two good jokes. It was at least polished enough and cheap, although I doubt I'll ever go back to it. I don't think it was bettered by the H-Patch, the girls are pretty enough without their pussies needlessly showing through the agonizingly long and over-the-top first-person descriptions of sex. I guess it's a problem of me not being able to self-insert well.

>>2647535
Also finished Ceress and Orea in about an hour, it's a cute and relaxing little tale with like 2 puzzles and a tiresome fetch quest, but no regrets for the price (1 American dollar) and time investment. It's only worth it if you hunt for all the flashbacks/cheevos though.

I want to make a yuri game but I've started to feel kind of depressed about it. So many people who I'd otherwise consider to have "good taste" seem to really dislike or have zero interest in yuri. Even my friends who can enjoy yuri have told me they'd always enjoy it better if it was straight and can't really relate to two girls loving each other. When I look at places where yuri fans gather I often feel like "I don't really like these people..." not everyone but a lot of them, if that makes sense. I love yuri a lot and it'd mean the most to me to make something with yuri, but it's disheartening that pretty much everyone I respect would see this as kind of a minus at the very least.

I wish yuri wasn't so niche and hard to get into for most people, it's lonely being a yuri fan.

>I want to make a yuri game but I've started to feel kind of depressed about it
You should be, game making requires dedication and effort and your half-assed attempt would fail anyway.

Write a story instead. It's not hard to find an audience, especially if you go for a popular pairing. You'll get faster feedback and feel a lot better.
>>
>>2650277
Do it and show them how good yuri can be. If they still didn't like when you know the story is good, you saw their true colors.
Also, how can someone have "good taste" about plots in games? 90% of all games have shit plot. Not even trying to be negative, it's the truth.
>>
>>2650277
It's like whining about "muh shounenfag friends don't likes shoujo, wat do." You start by looking for people that share your intetest first before getting to know them, idiot.

Also, talking by percentage, the amount of cancer among mainstreamfags is just as high as among yurifags. By absolute number, cancerous mainstreamfags blast everything else out of the water. It's also all about perspective. Don't forget weeaboo shit is very much a niche compared to other mainstream media. And don't forget transhit is much nicher compared to yuri. Didn't stop any hobby to have its own followers.

As for making games, the rule of thumb mindset is to make what YOU want to play, not what will please others. Your duty is to convert others. Before something became popular, how the heck did you think the pioneers decide what to make? By pitiying themselves and propagating the fact that their niche is not popular?

>When I look at places where yuri fans gather I often feel like "I don't really like these people..." not everyone but a lot of them
That's normal. Keep in mind that 'yuri fans' are a diverse group and have different tastes in yuri. Some can't even agree on what yuri means. Before you create anything you should figure out who exactly you're trying to please.

Remember that today 4th of July it's the start of AX and Jast USA will probably announce:
- A date for Flowers 2 (that they will delay)
- That they licenced Flowers 3 (don't expect a release date soon)
- Tokyo Necro which has a yuri route with Ethica, but if you can't stand edgy Nitro + VNs and a het route that never gets in the way of the yuri you should avoid it (this announcement is mostly just a rumour)
- And I don't know if they will remember they have Katahane licenced, so I doubt they will mention anything. And if they do, it will be just that "they're working on it". I would like to be wrong tho.

I would probably do the same recap for the most likely companies to announce yuri.

If you have 19 Con when sleeping with a prostitute at the Salty Mast you'll get the option to ask her to come working for you afterward (the wiki used to list a 19 Dex requirement as well, and I only ever tried with both 19 Dex and Con so I don't know which one is correct). She'll relocate in your private room in Caed Nua and you can get fade-to-black sex with her anytime you want for free, but you won't get the bonuses you'd get if she was still working at the Salty Mast. Other than that she'll be treated like a stronghold hireling, increasing prestige and costing you some gold each stronghold turn but not participating in battle.

Don't piss on Necro. It's Yuri route is separate, amazing and none of the lesbians get dicked (Infact Ethica refuses to have sex with a straight girl cause it makes her angry that sleeping with another woman is considered gross to her), which is more then can be said about alot of Visual Novels. There's also a route we're you play a BDSM obsessed bislut hacker.

Nitroplus edge is also fucking glorious.

/u/ is cool with games that have yuri routes that are actual full yuri routes, as long it doesn't have any "surprise" mid game.

>>2650755
It's about two girls developing a friendship, but Toko is constantly fantasizing about Togami and angrily dismisses the thought of yuri a few times. Of course, she's clearly utterly delusional about Togami, so you could definitely ship them, but it's not openly in the game.

There's also a scene where a young girl ties up the protagonist and, if you fail the minigame, basically molests her into compliance, which leads to a game over.

What is everyone impulse buying on the last day of the steam sale?

I was about to to buy Love, Guitars, and the Nashville Skyline but then I read it doesn't have an H-patch, instead the uncensored version is only on denpa's website and it costs more. Now I'm not buying it out of spite.

Only /u/ relevant game I bought this time was Starlight Drifter, which I am having fun with it. Although if there's one thing that leaves to be desired is that pacing could be better.

>>2651327
Not that anons, and I've only played the first one, but calling at least its gameplay mediocre would be accurate: I didn't hate my time with it or anything and there were some fun bits, but what made me want to finish it was the yuri and a fairly intriguing plot.

I'd be interested to hear what people think of the second one though. People talked about it a lot before it came out, but I missed the release window and I've seen nobody really talk about it around here.

What you said doesn't make sense. Those people whom you are talking to aren't Yuri fans. Doesn't mean that someone isn't offended to hell by Yuri, means they are a "fan". Fans are people whom Yuri is a high favorite for them. And they completely exist. Aside from right here on /u/, there are other forums, sites, blogs, where I see people talking fondly about Yuri. In fact, it's a really good thing that people in general find Yuri approachable, even if it isn't a genre they'd like the best.

Yuri has always been a smaller genre out of all the other romance demographics. You should follow the example of the East Asian indie creators. They aren't overly worried about feelings and stats. Those who want to make Yuri, just create their manga/games and put their work out there. Let passion and enthusiasm influence you more!
>>
>>2651327
The gameplay won't blow anyone's minds but it is fun (albeit easy outside a few late game bits and optional challenges), the characters are great, the story is great, the art is great and the music is great. I genuinely think it's a must play for anyone on /u/.

>>2651329
The second game is better in some ways and worse in others. For someone who's not into yuri it's probably a harder recommendation than the first game, but I still loved it.

I have the season pass and I beat the second DLC yesterday. As much as I enjoyed the game, if you've already beaten the game then I can't honestly recommend buying it again along with the DLC. The DLC storyline is kinda lame, although evil robot Asuna and the Hatsune Miku-esque villainess are pretty sexy. The DLC dungeons still look exactly the same as the storyline dungeons, and the only new bosses are the ones at the very end. The best thing about the second DLC is that it allows you to buy an item that increases the rate of affection gain and you can buy an upgrade for your home that unlocks that door and allows you rewatch bedtime scenes with your party members. There are some extra quests that your party members give you that will reward you with some furniture for your home, I know one of them is a speaker that allows you to listen to ingame music.

IIRC everything made by the developer is relentlessly terrible and their rambling is self-obsessed and irritating and not worth even looking into. File them under 'ignore'.
>>
>>2651468
Only saying this because we're past bumplimit because otherwise I would not want to open this offtopic shitshow.

Author is one of those people who is obsessed with their own edgy specialness, who feels that it is an important part of ARTISTIC FREEDOM to disregard player expectations entirely. Therefore, they intentionally pitched Sweet Volley High as "half otome half yuri romance" despite that being not true because they wanted to shock the readers.with the bad ends. Refused to tell anyone how to get the achievements for one of their other 'yuri' games because that would be spoilers. And so on.

In a way that's okay. Yes, as a creator, you have the freedom to be a dick if that's what you want to be, we can just write you off as a dick and warn people not to trust your games. But at the same time, they WHINE like little babies if you dare to criticise their artistic genius. "How dare you judge my HONEST QUEER NARRATIVE???"

Yes, I'm using 'they' for a reason, because as far as I know (unless I have the wrong person) the author has now changed from 'John' to 'Katie'. That's new since SVH came out. Again, whatever, I don't give a shit about you being trans, I care that your games are terrible and you're a jerk.

At least Ladykiller has some redeeming features. It's possible to get some enjoyment out of it, just avoid the bad route.

The same cannot be said for any product released by New West Games.

some author quotes about sweet volley high

>The game is not aimed at a specific fandom - in fact, my games typically avoid a lot of common genre tropes, instead relying on more realistic or 'true to life' depictions of relationships between characters. I hope that people from all visual novel fandoms will try the game, and take away an experience different from what they may have seen before.

>This game breaks a lot of visual novel rules. This is intentional. I do not simply want to make another 'typical' VN. For that reason, I suggest that traditional yuri fans such as yourself play the male route - I promise you'll gain more insight into the characters that way.

So with the Jast thing coming up so soon, what you think is realistic to except in Yuri content?

Atlach Nacha is a cult classic, and Mangagamer has a deal with Alicesoft. That could be a possibility.

The Mexican Yuri game was talked about being wanted, but I dont think they would announce it so soon after the survey.

Kindred Spirits on the Roof: Full Chorus release date is the best bet, in my view.

What else you think they snagged?

Besides JAST, who already announced its projects, the next companies most likely to announce yuri are Sekai and Mangagamer, i'll post on Saturday what we can expect from them.

But if you expect a 18 years old VN like that to be announced you'll be really dissapointed (and yeah I know they released old Rance games but don't compare Rance's popularity with a niche title)

>Atlach Nacha is a cult classic, and Mangagamer has a deal with Alicesoft. That could be a possibility.
Only if they're doing a remake in Japan. If they're doing a new version with fresh graphics then sure, they might announce an English release.

Otherwise, it's fan translation or nothing.

It's not really a het end. Hatsune fucking murders Silver when she goes apeshit. And at this point, she's half dead after being raped. [/spoiler

Because of how fucked up it is, the ending is a Yuri incest end, if I read into what Kanako wants to do with Hatsune junior..
>>
Just finished Gravity Rush 2 and I gotta say, they don't know how to write an ending. They should've led Raven to where Kat first wakes up, where she finds her swinging on the swing then she smiles at Raven and that's when you fade to black.

Otherwise a very fun game. There sadly isn't very much interaction between Raven and Kat.

I just started it and still haven't gotten far enough to see Raven. My goggles have nothing to focus on except cecie and her mom. Really fun so far though, it's too bad the game didn't do well.

To be honest, I wouldn't surprised to find out that the ending was rewritten and that was a last minute addition.

It doesn't tell you how much money they made.
Nor does it tell you exactly how many people own the game, since these estimations were driven by how many people PLAYED it and got the achievements, iirc.

Which means games with no achievements aren't listed at all. That's why you won't see any of the Sakura games on that list.

Kinda tough to blame people, I bought it day 1 for a rainy day that still hasn't come around because I've not been in the mood for it.

Looking at global achievements, 57.5 % of that started a game, 27.8% finished and 32.3% know what they did

That means 11,412 people liked it enough to finish it, which is still very high in an uneven comparison to total sales of the other yuri VN

Being pregnant with a rapist's child and then transfer the fetus to your gf is not "yuri end". It's the ultimate NTR, by het. The later pseudo incest just amplies that humiliation.

Why the hell do you think so many het doujin end in impregnation despite the rapist having been punished/killed? Because it's what counts for a male fantasy. Naively thinking "hey he had been killed! That means he's doomed by the narrative!" Is obtuse. That's like thinking the dark past of edgelord MCs mean the creator "hate" him.

Where are yuri where the girl is pregnant with a science yuri baby despite ultimately ending up with a guy?

Atlach is well liked by most who bothered to play it. Me too, despite my grief with the way it ended. It has really a really great MC and well written romance for her, much more than 99.99% actual yuri games out there. Just don't play it as a yuri game to avoid feeling betrayed and you'll be fine.

Hatsune and Kanako's only fault is that they star in a game written primarily for a misogynistic audiences who prefer lesbians to get raped and killed.

Ohhh boy, lets go into details about this one.

Let's preface this with this quote. "He may have been your father boy, but he wasn't your daddy!" Just because Hatsune Junior has Shirogane's blood, dosen't make her any less of Kanako's, and Hatsune's child. Hatsune, essentially takes back what Shirogane stole from her. She purges herself of his taint, but transferring little Hatsune to Kanano, and in the process, "purges" her of Shirogane's taint. While Shirogane forcibly injects his seed into her, Hatsune gives it to Kanako as a selfless gift the same way (stabbing her stinger into her, very gross)

It's the ultimate middle finger to him. Shirogane's life goal was to "make Hatsune his own", not only does Hatsune defy this, by destroying the bastard, she claims his precious "seed", appropriates it, makes it her own, and passes it over to the only person that ever mattered to her. Shirogane will be nothing more then a bad memory, which is the thing he feared the most. The worst thing for him.

After everything she fucking did, Hatsune did not deserve a happy ending. She TELLS Kanako, to remember her what she was, a ravenous spider. A monster who preys on human children, corrupts them. A monster who defined her own morality. If you try to absolve her of her sins, your just spitting on her character, which is defined by it's strength of will. Hatsune accepts and embraces herself. She may despise her being, but she nevertheless accepts it. She is a ravenous spider demon. She dosen't cry about it. She dosen't yell "Look at what he's done, it's all his fault!" She admits, while Shirogane sent her down this dark path, it was her decision to carry down on it, and she become a monster with glee. Hatsune doesn't make excuses, you shouldn't for her.
>>
>>2652625
Nope. I've actively asked for that kind of game for years. I want a gane advertised as het that have the bulk of plot-pivotal romance moment to be between girls and one of them get impregnated by the other girl (who can be dead or go away) and let a guy take care of that.

>Hatsune and Kanako's only fault is that they star in a game written primarily for a misogynistic audiences who prefer lesbians to get raped and killed.
Everyone get's fucking killed, and raped. The men. The woman. The rapists all get messily eaten. Atlach-Nacha is very indiscriminate on who dies and suffers.

That's an idea, make it with a faceless self-insert MC and no matter what route the player chooses the girls end up together after fucking in front of him, and of course, in one of the routes he gets raped by his token best friend guy.

Call it "Harem protagonist in a Bind".
>>
>>2652632
You can rationalize all you want, doesn't change what it was. No het romance ever ended with a girl pregnant with the "non winner", even if that guy ended up dead. NTR doujins and cheating porn are also created for self-insert of the stealer, not the cuck.

Genetic cucking is the worst. I honestly don't care about girls (or a het couple) ending up together if it means the baby isn't really theirs or of their intentional choosing through donors. I bet ypu like Ladykiller and SVH too, cuck.

Which is why people shouldn't be read as a yuri work. I don't know why it's gotten this reputation as one. Maybe the amazing writing just makes it standout?

>>
>>2652632
>the baby still has Hatsune's blood
The fact that there's a baby at all even though we're supposed to get a fullfilling romance between Hatsune and Kanako is the problem. You purposefully glossed over that point and dip into irrelevant shit that no yurifans care about just to defend it.

It's not yuri. It's just bait where the writer create a seemingly meaningful romance, only to crush it with het, the purpose is to titltilate the male otaku who get off on degrading women. The more powerful, respectable, hard-to-obtain female character, the better. Go to sad panda and educate yourself on any "yuri" doujin that has het, or any NTR doujin with the impregnation tag. It'd be hard to find any retarded dumb enough to think the point of those is "those girls still love each other for real and that's all that matters!" And "the child is still hers so her husband should still feel glad!"
>>
>>2652656
It's kinda of a moot point when the "self inset" gets fucking gorily killed in one of the most horribly painful deaths i've ever read a minute after the apparently "titillating scene".

It just shows how idiotic you are, because the OPENING scene is Kanako getting raped (which again, ends with the rapists getting completely torn apart and dying in painful agony.) The so called "yuri relationship" was depurified at the start. If you we're expecting some happy romance after that, then the real moron is you.
>>
And if the novel was intended for an NTR group, why didn't they have Kanako end up with a man? Hmmmm? Kanako refuses to get married, lives as a single mother to take care of little Hatsune (whom she subconsciously lusting after), because she still is in love with Hatsune.

They don't get a happy ending? So what. Nobody in the damn game gets a happy ending. Shirogane is ripped to shreds, and forgotten. Hatsune's Thralls become vegetables. The rapists who we're preying on the girls end up being devoured alive. Kanako's father never sees his daughter again. Kanako's best friend is eaten alive. The closest thing to a "happy end" is Kanako, because of Hatsune's action

>Ladykiller has more than 4 times as many sales than Fatal Twelve or Seabed
I'm not upset about those two having low sales. It's to be expected because yuri VNs are incredibly niche. But that piece of shit getting close to 10,000 sales and doing so much better than actual good yuri VNs is just depressing. I don't even understand how it got those numbers in the first place. I know the devs have some retarded fans, but I didn't think they had that many of them.

Blame the fucking Main Stream gaming media, attention=sales. They fucking whored themselves out the stupid dev, and they thought it was a sex positive game.

Have you ever even seen an NTR doujinshi, anon? The focus is almost universally either on the woman or the cuckold (or both). Netorase, where the focus is on the bull, is pretty rare by comparison, and not usually what's meant by NTR.

But enough talking about hetshit.

Can't say anything about SeaBed but Fatal Twelve had Sekai Project who did a shitty job on marketing. I didn't even know that the game was out until people started to talk about it here. But iirc, it was also a kickstarter project so I don't know if that affected the numbers too.

>No het romance ever ended with a girl pregnant with the "non winner"
wrong
>>
>>2652844
As has been stated several times already in this thread, we're hanging out waiting to see if there are any more /u/ announcements at anime expo.
>>
>>2652643

In het romance, in my experience, if the story involves the protagonist being pregnant by someone other than the guy she ends up with, it's usually one of two options. Either she loves both men but for some reason can't be with the first one (he's dying, he's leaving forever) so she marries the second but keeps the first's baby, OR the first guy was a cad who abandoned her after knocking her up and the second guy was the kind gentle romantic hero who restored her faith in men by loving her anyway and not being stupidly obsessed with genetics and Defiled Forever.

In lesbian romance I've read multiple stories where one of the women was pregnant by rape before she even met the lesbian love interest. Rapist may never even have gotten a name. This is just used as a cheap plot device to create drama and a slow burn relationship while one of them has to both realise She Gay and get over her trauma in order to embrace this new love, and then when they finally fall in love they are rewarded with a 'natural' baby.

These are obviously not all stories, I haven't seen every romance in all of media, but these are the ones I've experienced.

The other alternative I sometimes see is that one MC has Eight Strapping Brothers who exist for the twin purposes of showing how she was raised as 'one of the boys' and so that they can provide sperm donation for the eventual lesbian couple baby.

>I'm not sure I've ever seen adoption.

Really annoys me how no one seems to consider that. I'm not the kind of person who is annoyed by male sperm donors and such but damn, am I the only person who sees nothing wrong with being adopted? Does everyone have this passive dislike/fear of adoption that makes them not consider it an option for a couple (usually) inherently incapable of having children? I've always seen it as somehow more sweet and loving due to the lack of genetic ties and always being a choice. It comes with several easy paths to drama too, for stories into that.

To help fix the lack of it I've put effort into making my own story with it as an element for a yuri couple but it turns out making games is hard and expensive.
>>
>>2652878
I feel exactly the same
>>
>>2652878
>>2652880
As do I, in fact I want to adopt more than I want my own kids, but the people I know are mystified by it. It's just because most people feel like they can't bond with an adopted child as well as one with their genes.

Are there even any games with adoption or sperm donors?

I feel the same, for me lesbian couples adopting a child is the cutest thing ever, it has so much potential for a nice story about family and emotional intimacy. It would be particularly great if the kid was already part of the story before.

The only similar example I can think of is Nanoha and Fate, maybe.
>>
>>2652882
Strangely I've read at least two stories where the lesbian couple finds a lost child, bonds with it, has lots of cute family moments, and then discover the kid's Real Family and have to give it back.

Because being lesbians is suffering.
>>
>>2652881
Well, also in the real world adoption is complicated, especially if you want a baby, especially if you want a white american baby that isn't suffering from drug withdrawal.

Need more heartwarming stories about adopting older kids.

So today Saturday 7th at AX we have Sekai Project and Mangagamer's panels. I'm less certain of this two than JAST announcements (three out of four is not bad having into account that JAST decided to not announce Moogy's project) because leaks have not been kind, but whatever. We can hope for this:

Mangagamer:
- Kotonoha Amrilanto (this is an announcement for either AX or Otakon, and since they will just have 3 new announcements for this con my common sense tells me it will be an announcement for the later, but it's worth mentioning)
- No new SonoHana for the remaining cons announcements.

Sekai:
- They will be the editors of a few OELVN that had Kickstarters this year.

Don't expect much surprises on the yuri side, since I expected Denpasoft/Sekai to get on the Natsukon (https://vndb.org/r33971) train, but apparently not this year.

They are an indie company of mostly yuri nukiges so don't expect a lot of plot. For the rest well, not bad sex or art, but meh writting.

Yes, you can create your own character and choose the gender.

You can marry a woman at some point during the game, I don't remember when though. And at the end the dark elf chick who's been with you for the whole game confesses to you, and you can flirt with her earlier if you have high enough skills.

There's enough to be listed in one of the OP's list but it's a bit complicated. As the lists put it the yuri really is going nowhere.
The dark elf anon anon mentioned doesn't actually confess, you can catch her showing an interest but the best you'll get out her is a maybe. Same way for the marriage option, she expects to marry you but there's no way to either accept or refuse. Other than that the Maid of Windemere will become your consort if you take the "evil" path during the House of Ballads questline, and you can woo (as she puts it) your ship captain during the Dead Kel DLC.

Well, in that same post I said I'm glad we're getting more yuri, just not so glad that we're getting the same kind of yuri again and again. This sounds like SonoHana but with no sex, just couples doing shit and that gets boring to me. But apparently I can't be feed up of that and I have to buy it because ITS YURI. I mean cool for the people who likes that, but it's not for me anymore, I've not said anything else, I even took time to look at the CG's and inform /u/ that, yeah, it's legit couples and they don't have to worry.

You said that it's not '''good''' yuri, whatever that means, like it's some objective fact.

Different anon here. I'm fine with slice of life, but having an overarching plot is preferable. Supernatural and mystery elements are my favorite.

I'm also not super into the art style for Rainbow Stage. It's a bit too cutesy for me, but I can see why others might like it.

I won't write it off though and will check it out when it's released. At least it has a number of couples it focuses on so it should have some variety.

It's was my subjective opinion, not some definitive fact, i don't come to the internet believing i hold the absolute thruth. Sorry if I offended someone because they like that kind of yuri, I already said I'm glad for ya'll just chill, not everyone likes the same.

Tell me were are these "generic" cutsy games in recent Yuri releases? There's fucking none. So when you say "variety" your just asking for the same shit. Get over yourself.
>>
>>2653323
Lilycle is all yuri, with multiple endings, many choices with many characters, excellent production value, extended story that will likely get even more content in the future (especially if this venture succeeds like KS did), and it's just one of the many good licensed /u/ games to expect in the coming years. I'm excited. I can't believe how lucky /u/ has been this year.
>>
>>2653323
You should get over yourself. The initial complaint wasn't even about variety in games, it was about variety in yuri in general. Yuri games are lucky to be so diverse but you can't deny that anime/manga is swamped SoL/idols/school girl yuri designed to rot your teeth with sweetness with minimal plot, so it's no surprise that there are anons who look forward to VN's especially because of all the ones that don't follow that trend.

See, it doesn't make sense in any other context, why would you think it does in this one?

Idols was mainly directed at anime, which by extension breeds many doujins. There's a fair amount of SoL manga though, most of the SoL animes come from manga after all.
>>
>>2653319
No, i mean some devs thinks that just putting yuri in their shit games will make them sell. And guess what? they do! because /u/ buys everything with yuri on it because we're desperate. Just look at the numbers some games with /u/ content move, we we're talking about that earlier.

So i'm just saying that, please don't buy everything if you don't like it because we will get more shit games. Not saying Lilycle is shit, but you don't need to feel forced to buy it just because it will mean "more yuri"

>the game is very good

Well, like that's your opinion man. I agree it has high production values.

And this is what I mean >>2653353 this exact mentality.
>>
>>2653357
Those aren't the same as what he's saying, he's saying we should be grateful that there's even an interest in yuri translations now since previously no one gave a shit. And I am thankful we have moved on from 10 polygons per face.

But even though he's right and I agree with him, I am getting burned out on visual novels.

People forget the only reason we're getting so much VN's is because Mangagamer knows the Yuri audience is very loyal, and we buy their games instead of pirating like the het crowd. As soon as that changes, they'll be back to translating endless het titles.
>>
>>2653322
>The game is very good and that's what matters.
Considering it's based around drama CDs I assume it has some nice VAs. But I'm not too familiar with it, so what would you say its selling points are?
>>
>>2653363
Yuri is the only thing I buy, I pirate everything else.
>>
>>2653362
There's a difference between being grateful that there is interest in translations and eating up every translation no matter what it is. I'm not terribly familiar with the game in question, but 30 hours of plotless CGDCT sounds mind-numbingly boring to me, and I'd rather support Nitroedge than this.
>>
>>2653323
Holy fuck, really? When did i said generic? My main complain was that that kind of "plot" of cute girls doing cute things (couples or not) I've seen plenty outside (and inside) VNs. But whatever, let's see:

The 10 or so SonoHana games already translated? Lilium x Triangle? Wolf's Tail? Strawberry Vinegar?

Should I go on or you get it?

This anon >>2653346 gets it. It's not hard. I've already stated that it was my opinion and said I was glad for the people who liked it, so it's not like I trashed into your tastes. People like different things and I like for something more in my VNs, that's about it.
>>
>>2653372
All incredibly short games idiot. Not proper Visual Novels.
>>
>>2653346
Not that anon. The problem with the initial complaint is that it stated that the game is not good when it's really just purely that anon's personal preference. The "variety" argument is unneeded (and false when applied to this particular medium). Also, it implies that the "generic shit" is lesser than "plot", which is demeaning to people who actually like it, to say the least.
>>
Go outside and get some air
>>
>>2653374
Plus it's simply untrue, and the yuri game market is super diverse.
>>
>>2653371
You're dismissing it entirely when you're not even familiar with it, using reasons stated by other anons who also aren't familiar with it. How is that better than eating up stuff no matter what it is?
>>
>>2653374
>which is demeaning to people who actually like it
There's nothing wrong with accepting you like plotless trash. Most of /u/ is sustained on doujins/anime/games that have no bigger purpose than being slightly entertaining and showing girls liking girls, and it's okay. But getting upset at people calling this "generic shit" is like liking Transformers and getting upset at the same thing.
Not going to say it applies to Lilycle, because it's not out yet, but you get my drift. Besides, you should be used to "my tastes > your tastes" posts by this point.

>>2653379
Why wouldn't I dismiss it if I see it's not to my taste? I don't need to invest 30 hours in a game to understand that I don't like it, that's what descriptions are for. Or do you play literally every game ever because who knows, you might end up liking it?
>>
The naysayers are sleeper agents planted in by /a/ and /vn/. Don't listen to their lies. Be hyped.
>>
>>2653362
Supporting yuri is a good cause and it is easy to avoid the bad eggs now that easy refunds are ubiquitous. I doubt that blind purchases are the phenomenon that causes bad games to get a lot of sales.

>>2653362
>burned out on visual novels
I've read thousands of chapters of yuri manga and I'm still not even close to being burned out, so where did you find enough yuri VNs to get burned out on and where can I find it?

>>2653374
At least the majority of people with common sense to make their own decisions will be unable to miss the news that this game will exist in english at some point. One overreaction by an uninformed anon and people who latched onto that opinion won't matter much in the end, because the best publicity is anything that gets people talking about it.
>>
>>2653382
>But getting upset at people calling this "generic shit" is like liking Transformers and getting upset at the same thing.
That's not "my tastes > your tastes". That's "my taste is the objectively right".

>Why wouldn't I dismiss it if I see it's not to my taste? I don't need to invest 30 hours in a game to understand that I don't like it, that's what descriptions are for. Or do you play literally every game ever because who knows, you might end up liking it?
You can wait until it's actually out and read the reviews by people who actually played the game.
>>
>>2653134
This looks great, though.
>>
>>2653388
>That's not "my tastes > your tastes". That's "my taste is the objectively right".
That's literally what "my tastes > your tastes" meme is about.

>You can wait until it's actually out and read the reviews by people who actually played the game.
Why would I? I'm not one of those cool hacker kids, but I'm perfectly capable of opening the game's vndb page, reading the description, looking at screenshots and then deciding that I'm not interested in it. Again, unless you play every game just in case you're going to like it, chances are you have some personal criteria that you base your judgment on. Most people do, at least. And this game doesn't fit my criteria of "interesting", so I'm not interested in it. Simple.
>>
>>2653373
The last two SonoHana games released by Mangagamer are all 20 fucking hours long each.

And I see we are discussing now what is a "proper" VN and what not. Just great.

>>2653374
I fucking never said "variety" yall got that out of your asses. And it obviously was my fucking prefference and opinion, which one would it be if not mine? And I never said that my tastes were superior just that i get BORED of "plots" like that, some people just scalated it to that because why the fuck would you read instead of getting butthurt because we don't have the same tastes?

Chill, get some rest, enjoy your fucking VN and that's about it. Yall need to live with people having different tastes in shit.
>>
>>2653397
You shouldn't have said that it's "not good yuri" when you barely know anything about it and are basing it on your own subjective preferences. It pisses people off, rightly so. The only objective criteria for good yuri is the existence of maintext in it, like kissing, confessions, dating, and such.
>>
>>2653408
It's not good yuri according to my tastes the same thing is good yuri according to yours. I don't see why people would get pissed at personal preferences, when I didn't trashed in other people tastes, I even said it was glad for the people who liked it.

But, anon, you invented that criteria out of your ass too wtf? For example, Ladykiller has all that, would you call it an OBJETIVELY good yuri? I think not, but It has all that you mentioned. There is not a criteria, it all comes down to personal and subjective preferences and tastes. You cannot categorize anything objectively. And I never did.
>>
>>2653417
Why do you keep comparing things to Ladykiller? Are you obsessed with it or something?
>>
>>2653397
Now you're the one overreacting.
>Yall
>>>/out/

>>2653408
>The only objective criteria for good yuri is the existence of maintext in it, like kissing, confessions, dating, and such
You're describing a criteria of "yuri", not "good yuri", though. Try making a thread titled "Atlach Nacha is a good yuri VN" and see what happens.
>>
Rainbow Stage being possibly similar to Sono Hanabira is likely the point. Sono Hanabira is popular in the west, so something similar to it that could be put on Steam safely was likely a safe choice, especially after what happened to Maidens of Michael.
>>
>>2653417
Your ESL is showing.
>>
>>2653419
Keep? I've only mentioned Ladykiller once... what?

I mentioned it because it's the only general consensus in the history of /u/: It's shit.
>>
>>2653422
Atlach Nacha is a very good VN.
>>
>>2653423
>Maidens of Michael
RIP

I'm reading about the characters, the game looks super fluffy with the girls so in love with each other.

This drama CD thing is something I never tried before, might be a nice new way to experience yuri, particularly the Maid x Ojou-sama couple, I love this kind of thing.
>>
>>2653417
My point is, don't use "good yuri" because it implies that it's a fact, something inherent to the game itself, not to your own opinion. Just saying that you don't like that type of game is more appropriate I think
>>
>>2653452
I'd like to add that you can say something is good/bad, but after it's out so you can at least gauge the reviews and form an informed opinion after that.
>>

Demo of the OELVN The Waters Above, tho.
>>
SAVE US MANGAGAMER SAVE US!
>>
>>2653562
Well, not really expecting anything frlom them at the moment. Besides, they keep fucking shit up lately. Don't know if you heard about the Maitetsu mess since it's not /u/
>>
>>2653568
Yeah, I've heard, I like visual novels in general, not only yuri, so unfortunatelly I know all their fuck ups. I'm still mad at the whole Balrd Sky thing.

I just informed in case no one elses checks twitter or they want to read The Waters Above.
>>
>>2653568
>westerners translated Maitetsu
What, I remember hearing about Maitetsu being some kind of train otaku VN where the porn was just a extra bonus non-canon to the story, and that it was hard to get proper enjoyment out of it without being a train fanatic.

Why would even localize something like that? I don't know if train otaku are a thing in the west.

The het self-insert VNverse perplexes me, judging by what I see getting popular I'd expect nothing but psychological horror/creepy troll/wacky VNs to be translated, but what actually does doesn't make much sense to me.
>>
>>2653583
As far as I know, it got translates because lolisfags keep asking for it, no one in the west is interested in Maitetsu because of the trains.
>>
>>2653583
>train otaku

Pedophiles
>>
>>2653583
>Why would even localize something like that?
because you can sell it on steam claiming it's for people obsessed with trains (train simulators are a big thing) while also selling it to the lolicons
>>
>>2653574
Is this different than The Waters Above: Prelude that I installed on steam a week ago?
>>
>>2653583
Whose fucking idea was it to make a VN about trains anyways?
>>
>>2653592
I'm ok with that, trains look cool.

But why are all the little train girls not in love with each other, that's what why don't understand.
>>
>>2653592
nerrrrrrrrrds
>>
>>2653592
Japan train otaku are something else. Train otaku don't really exist outside of places that aren't dependent on trains for transportation.

It's like if someone made a VN about hot women that are also muscle cars.
>>
>>2653593
>multi track drifting yuri
Radical.
>>
>>2653590
At first, I assumed they released the demo of the full game, but nope. For them "demo" means "free prelude" already released.
>>
>>2653595
Or if someone made a game about cute girls that are also warships, amirite?
>>
>>2653601
Sounds silly, it would never get popular.

Decent haul, very decent haul.

SeaBed is a psychological anti-drama in that it avoids any semblance of horror, clear cut character development or direct catharsis. The developer also insisted on avoiding the description of emotions in the prose so that the reader can actually think and understand for themselves instead of being spoonfed pre-conceived notions and attitudes and dramatizing the conflicts of the characters for simple entertainment. It's a very bold and empathetic approach that lets those really into the story go on something of a spiritual journey rather than invoking mere escapism.

It also has this uncanny and dreamlike feeling to it with how it's structured in addition to the monotony of tone, it's pretty confusing and ambiguous half the time while mostly talking mundane subjects. That's not to say it's boring or anything, it was a very personal experience for me. I cried quite a bit in some of the later chapters and I rarely ever do that in fiction. I feel like most people don't appreciate how unique and well written it really is, not just in the yuri scene but in the entire medium of visual novels.
>>
2 more hours!
>>
>>2653667
Thank you for expressing what I can't. SeaBed is really special.
>>
>>2653667
>don't appreciate how unique and well written it really is
Most people here don't read Japanese, so that's probably part of it.
>>
>>2653676
It has an English release.
>>
>>2653667
I wish more people gave this game a chance, it's truly something unique.
>>
IT'S OFFICIAL WERE GETTING RAINBOW CYCLE!

>There's some fuckwit on /vn/ whose ranting about how nobody actually buys Yuri titles, and that it's a Jewish conspiracy by Mangagamer.
Somebody's been drinking the Dies Koolaid...
>>
>>2653595

>Car Lesbians that is literally about lesbian cars
Would buy in an instant.

>>2653667

Sounds something I wouldn't enjoy, considering I check the box for emotional connections in life by playing vidya. Ah well, can still refund it.
>>
>>2653762
And they say /pol/ isn't leaking.
>>
>>2653762
What did I tell about /vn/ ?
Just don't.
I'm ok with this MG announcement. I hope we'll get Kotonoha Amrilato after this. Other than that I don't even know what yuri titles are worth it/ they can actually get.
>>
>>2653730
Wow, that's great.

I'll not contain my hype anymore, time to enjoy some fluffy love.
>>
>>2653762
Don't bring drama from other boards here, nee-san.

Lilycle is super cute, any chance of getting the Drama CDs to sell in the west as well I wonder? They are really enjoyable.
>>
>>2653832
I think that we can get them if it sells well enough, just like what happened with KS.

Finally got around to playing Highway Blossoms. I was prepared to find Amber annoying but I liked her character and thought her arc was great.
Despite hearing a lot of complaints about that RV scene I have no idea how saintlike people here think they are if they honestly think they wouldn't be acting the same way if they were stressing out over maybe taking advantage of someone they loved, just lost their most important memento from their recently deceased father figure, and their RV/childhood home broke down at the same time.
Pleasantly surprised that it wasn't a bland cute pure lesbians doing cute things roadtrip.
>>
>>2653839
Did they cook meth in the RV?
