Despite the game's problems, Cyberpunk 2077 has one of the best lesbian romances in an WRPG to date.

It does leave one wanting for more, but even with the content we got, I would rank Judy/Valerie in the top #3 of /u/ vidya game romances.

I played it day 1 and it was playable for me from the start. Though I tend to have some luck avoiding major problems in games for the most part.

Tbh the worst thing about ME from a yuri perspective is that Liara basically became the focus of the fandom to a degree that she eclipses all other yuri ships as far as I've read. Same goes for paragon sheps as I'm only aware of on renegade shep fic of any note. Granted it's a very good fic, even if it does ship the standard femshep x Liara, but I'd still like more of them.

Not being able to romance Tali made me sad when I played the games too. Despite this probably being an unpopular opinion, I think that the default for all NPCs where a wide range of romances is a thing is to make them all playersexual. For the sort of game that gives out that wide range of romances is generally some sort of escapist fantasy with at least some significnat degree of customization and choice, or at least the illusion of it, so I figure it's best for devs to lean into that by not ruining anyone's day by not being able to romance an NPC they like just because of what their avatar is. Choices would matter, obviously, but the only thing your avatar should change is comments on your pairing up assuming the setting makes it notable in any way.

More romance focused games that are intended to be heavy on the plot can delve deep into the full yuri experience. Let the wider scope shit indulge in the fantasy of being able to be a cute girl getting to just pick whatever cute girl happen to like no matter what other players might end up playing and picking.
>>
>>3705925
On the one hand, I like the concept of making a character's sexuality an inherent part of their narrative design (though it doesn't really happen but I digress).

On the other, Tali and Panam.
So yeah, I'd rather playersexual was the norm in games with explicit romance subplots.
>>
>>3705932
Yeah, I love Judy in CP2077 but PANAM, man...

Fuck, it was Rose from FONV all over again.
>>
>>3705902
Yes, about the insignificant, "realistic", optional love interests for the player-made/selected character in games that are otherwise about something else entirely and often not very good. Removing romance completely would allow the devs focus more on the gameplay while deterring waifufags at the same.
Other than that you have people just looking for background lesbians or gay lore in something like Prey as if they make a difference.

Usually these aren't added because the writer/devs like yuri. In cases like that one asscreed DLC it becomes clear just how little they care.
Aside from these datesim checkboxes I don't really see anyone trying to portray a relationship between two "fixed" female characters that exists regardless of player choice. Some might hint a character is lesbian and do virtually nothing with it.
>>
>>3705932
>>3705943
You can keep sexuality as a an inherent part of a narrative design for a character as long as they're not a romance option. Hell I'd encourage devs to do so. As it gives room to stretch some writer muscles and I really like the two BoS lesbians in FNV as that little facet of their characters really shaped their experiences in the wasteland and with the BoS.

I forgot about Panam though. She was a rather solid character with a fantastic model. Though that model is really the only big thing she had over Judy, for I felt like her personal story was a bit too much and The Star ending has Judy coming along for the same feeling of being with Panam alone woulda been. More or less.
>>3705948
I distinctly recall hearing that the asscreed dlc was made by a different team. Which explained the general misstep but in general yeah I do gotta say that I wouldn't trust most devs to particularly care for such things.

Honestly anyone arguing around realism should be ignored entirely. There's nothing realistic about the band of suicidal morons accompanying whatever hero the player is playing so them all being implausibly into the player no matter what they play if they're into the player at all is far from the least realistic thing about a given game.

>>
>>3705961
Why did you quote me? My point is to make romances open to as many players as possible?
>>
Judy's romance was fantastic. Easily one of the best in vidya.
Even if Panam was available, I would still pick Judy 99% of playthroughs.
What makes Judy stick out of the rest of "lesbian" romances in games is that it's the only one I feel that is an actual lesbian romance.
C'mon! They even included a U-haul joke! The writer knew what they were doing.

As much as I love Liara's romance, Judy's is vastly superior. And that is because, unlike Judy's, Liara's romance was written with the Male PC in mind, who the Female PC was simply allowed to *share* with.

Judy's romance isn't perfect, but the fact it was written *for* lesbians puts it a head above everything else so far.
>>
>>3705962
Whoopsie. My bad.
>>
>>3705961
Yes, your should feel bad for having shit opinions, but that's beside the point as I didn't actually tell you to "stop enjoying" anything. But then again it'd be great if you did, because the specific game in question fucking sucks, and the discussion these player-driven romances encourage is usually just a different flavor of waifufaggotry.
>>
>>3705970
>I didn't actually tell you to "stop enjoying" anything.

Thinking devs should cut all choice and romance is, though.
>>
>>3705967
I can't quite put my finger on why, but this is true, there's a definite vibe, even apart from the fact that Judy simply isn't interested in anyone but women.

I'm thinking its the scuba hobby. Something about lesbians and aquarium dates. Or maybe it's more lesbians and diving...
>>
>>3705977
The way she reacts to Male!V flirting, her backstory with Maiko and the Uhaul joke play a part in adding to the authenticity.

>Or maybe it's more lesbians and diving...
Particularly pearl diving.
>>
>>3705974
Are you a dev? You wouldn't be able to enjoy something that isn't there.

>>

Then stop seething that people like romance.

What retards like you don't realise is that if devs did do what you asked and removed all choice, all romances in 99.99% of games will be het?
>>
>>3705961
>noooooo only I'm allowed to voice my opinion, no one else is
Player-sexual characters are shit. I'd rather play an RPG where you have options to express your character's sexuality through dialog options and such, flirt with people, get different reactions (positive and negative) etc. but no actual "romance" than have generic player-sexual robots that just automatically fall in love with any PC that picks the "nice" dialog option 3 times.
>>
>>3705986
>noooo stop liking what I don't like! Devs, please get rid of them!

Read a book.
>>
>>3705985
If devs did what I asked, the games with choice would simply not have romance options for anyone at all, but I get that you can't read too well.

For my part, games like Digimon Cyber Sleuth make the whole "this game was obviously written for a boy" thing work. It doesn't even have any real romance regarding the MC, but the fact that the game was made as if the MC would be a typical horny boy makes all the references to "hey you like hot ladies right" sort of things hilariously gay.
>>
>>3705989
I can read that you're a bitter faggot that wants to take away things that other people enjoy because you don't like them yourself.

F:NV is a fine game. But, you know what? If Veronica and Cassidy were romanceable, it would be better.

To an extent, and the rest is just you making up nonsense so you can get mad at it. Not healthy.

Shame they fucked up the sequel and made the protagonist male only.
Why the fuck did they do that in the first place???
>>
>>3705994
I still don't get it. It's not like the first game took any extra effort to use a chooseable MC. They couldn't even be bothered to make a model?

Oh, right, there was the other game that came after it, NWO? Was that any good?
>>

You're the mad one.
I don't like most VNs. Doesn't mean I think they should stop being made because I personally don't enjoy them.

And there's not a thing you can do to stop me! Mwahahahahaha!
>>
>>3705896
That's because Mark Meer is a huge nerd, and has been active in gaming for decades. Doesn't help that the default MaleShep model was based on some fashion model, so he looks blandly attractive as far as the 3D modelling is concerned.
>>
>>3705986
>Player-sexual characters are shit.
I completely understand wanting to have thoughtful romances, one's that are catered to a type of sexuality, because we know that there's a difference when media is written with an specific target in mind. And, I don't know how many of you are actual men who casually enjoy yuri, but speaking as a lesbian, being gay does change your perspective. Yeah, some people turn it into their whole personality as devs too, but there's no denying it's inherent to who we are. Just the same as no game is apolitical, because the person who writes it already has pre-built ideas of their own, y'know?

I wouldn't argue that Judy's romance is an example of that, in fact, it's a strong case for arguing in favor of playersexual romances. Let me explain, while I'm glad /u/ people got the vibe, it was found that Male V lines were recorded for her romance. What does that mean? It means that at some point later in production it was cut and it wasn't exclusive and it was written with that in mind.

The reality is that there's no trade-off, there're no absolutes. If you cut playersexual romances you won't 'get' a better romance, you only get one that is already written. And seldom are the cases where romances aren't written with a default MC in mind or as accessible as possible to make sure that all type of players are included, even if they are genderlocked. I believe a lot of us knows the feeling, it shows that in most cases with genderlocked romances, you don't get anything extra, just the ability to romance them. Maybe a couple of jokes here and there but nothing that you go out to say, "this truthfully was build with that in mind."

Maybe Dorian's romance is like that (if you put romance him as a girl it's weird!), but Sera's sure isn't. Most romances don't distinguish between genders, so why lock it? The writing for it will always be subpar no matter how hard the devs try because it's hard and time consuming and studios won't bank on that.
>>
>>3706047
This 100%
>>
>>3706047
No, that isn't what happened. Both male and female VAs record the same lines. The same thing happened with Mass Effect.
Instead of looking at the PC's dialogue, look at the character that's being romanced.
As far as i'm aware, Judy has *NO* romance dialogue addressing V as a male. All of her romance related dialogue is for Fem!V.

Judy is and always was a lesbian. And her romance *is* a lesbian one, through and through.
Stop perpetuating the myth that she was originally Bi because of a stupid misunderstanding.
>>
>>3706047
Do you have a certificate that states you speak for all lesbians?
>>
What has to be kept in mind is that you can give either Vs either voice.

So that "male" romance lines with Judy was probably ment for a FemV with a male voice.
Obviously that was a bit weird, so they decided to implement the voice requirement for romance along with the body type requirement and just didn't bother the remove the unused lines from the game.
>>
Is the VA shit going to be brought up every time Judy's romance is discussed?
Do we have a disclaimer or something to explain this shit to morons who don't know about how alot shit get recorded by VAs that 90% of time means fuck all?


The situation with Judy isn't like the situation was with Suvi from ME: Andromeda.

>>
>>3706257
There are many RPGmaker games for sale, some of which are yuri, some of which are weird adventure games with no RPG in them, some of which are porn, many of which are top sellers and priced at $20. This is a pretty boring take.

IMO the question is more, are they long enough to be worth the price? "It's RPGMaker" is pretty meaningless. If it looks like every other RPGMaker game, then the player already knows and doesn't care. If it's been customised so hard that it's not obvious what it is, then why would it even matter?

True, I've read that articles when they came out. I was pretty hyped up to cp77 then. While I understand that it's industry standard it's still weird and I don't think a Male!V romance would be out of place for Judy.

>>3706057
Oh, that's true. I haven't considered that.

>>3706058
I'm sorry for bringing it up. My others points still stands. However I'm unware of Suvi's drama if there's one. I played ME:A aka backseat to an AI protagonist simulator pretty late.

I was enjoying Judy's romance till I got to the end and saw all the implications. I'm sad to see if this is really the best we could do because it's such a poor storyline buried deep in something that could've been truly good.

Imagine if Ev had someone who was going through as much as she was and was thinking suicidal thoughts/depressed just like her, seeing as they were terminal and they talked about it. Imagine Judy, who had already lost one of her best friends because in this game we can't have consequences or choices she's going to die anyway because fuck you! was told that the person she's falling for will soon follow and deal with it, y'know instead of going "Fuck V! Sorry about that." The phone call at the end before Mikoshi is just a piss at the player who romanced anyone but Panam and I refuse to believe "it'S tHe BeST WLw WeStERn rOmAncE"

Sure it has it's moments, but it all sours by the end and it's superficial as fuck.
You know what is the best ending? The Don't Fear the Reaper ending. Oh wait, V can't go with the Aldecados in that ending? Why? Because how dare you think anything you choose in this game has consequences, and that you have any agency as a player. Even if you get the dolls killed, Judy's romance keeps going because how dare we actually suffer for fucking something up.

Life is Strange got so much shit because 'only the final choice matters ' and here's Cyberpunk doing the same thing but people praise it because muh edgy and muh CDPR. Ahh sorry about the vent.
>>
>>3706392
Judy's romance would be out of place for MaleV. Pay attention to the actual dialogue and everything about Judy.
You might stand by your point, but it's still outright wrong, considering it's based on misinformation and your personal dislike of the game.
And it is one of the best lesbian romances. Can you give any other contenders?
I think you just got caught up in the hype, got burned out and are letting that cloud your judgement.


Judy's romance isn't perfect, but even with what we got, it still easily beats anything Bioware, Larian or other devs have done has done.
It's a breath of fresh air in a stale industry and welcome change and step in the right direction.

Was mentioned years ago, was delayed by pandemic, is Epic-exclusive, so a lot of people haven't noticed.

The female character is supposed to have originally been a lesbian I think but I have no idea whether that matters in-game.

Square insisted on this because Sam x Laura was too gay and too popular. No one put up much of a fuss because square didn't commit the crime of making Laura het and instead simply turned her into a generic action hero devoid of emotion
>>
>>3706498
As if Missus ‘broods over shit for decades, fought through multiple armies to rescue her best friend’ would just let shit lie and never even think of Sam again. Character assassination of both of them. Oh Squeenix, why couldn’t you just shut up and accept the lesbux.
>>
>>3706503
Don't worry, Square knows what they're doing. Now they just sold Lara's whole franchise/company off to buy NFTs.

At least now Crystal Dynamics will be free from the Avengers mines to make another Tomb Raider, or we can see their take on Joanna Dark (Assuming that rumor on them helping out on the new Perfect Dark is right)

>It's a breath of fresh air in a stale industry and welcome change and step in the right direction.

Sorry nee-san, but I think we will have to agree to disagree. You hardly seem to have been in contact with Male's V dialogue with Judy which is pretty similar, in fact too close for comfort.

And besides that, Judy's questchain
>She doesn't care when ou go to the final mission, hardly saying anything that matters in the last call.
>After you complete Pyramid Song the romance stops there. (A problem common to all romances and poor planning at CDPR's part.)
>Prior to that the Male V can get rejected two times but it hardly changes the dialogue even when you reach to Pyramid Song. You can easily verify this claim by watching the cutscenes with both genders, you will find that the dialogue differ in very few instances.

CDPR didn't invent the wheel, they just did things differently, and imo, it has it's ups and downs. In fact, while I would be hard-pressed to admit that Mass Effect's romances are better, if you take Liara's romance in the first game as an example it follows the same pace as the plot, making it more rewarding when you reach the end and more cohesive to the plot. Judy in contrast seem like a weird hook-up that you even wonder why they're together in an ending and the other the conversation must've been funny. "Oh? You went on a suicide mission? It's that what the call was about? Wild, V!"

the isolation was definitely part of it though, the head housekeeper would've given her a lot of shit for eating with/fraternizing with the help which Genevieve takes advantage of.

>>
>finished Night Cascades
It's okay but the ending is very anticlimatic.
>>
>>3706498
I’ve said this here before, but considering the lesbian shipping that’s happened in Japan-developed Square games over the past ten years or so, I really don’t think it’s Square executives who put the ax down on Sam, or if it was not for those reasons. If somebody was angling to eliminate that ship, it was almost certainly someone a bit lower on the ladder, and probably at Eidos or Crystal Dynamics.
>>
>>3706621
I very vaguely recall hearing something along the lines that it was down to the local devs rather than the higher ups to kill the ship. Some shit about dudebro gamers that are the main audience for the game not liking it or something?

>>3706299
How's the story for those games? The creator has a new game coming up on Kickstarter and it looks interesting.
>>
>>3706613
I dug the tone and liked the ending but it definitely could do a lot with a sequel. Fingers crossed it did well enough and that the dev actually wants to do that and that the artist came back for it too. We rarely get sequel yuri games hiver never

Because you can give FemV a male voice.
And take JUDY'S dialogue into account. All her romance lines are female orientated.
Pay a-fucking-ttention.
The problems with Judy's are just part of CP77's problems as a whole.
It's still better than Liara's, which is just MaleShep's with the pronouns changed.
Judy's romance romance in many way should be a benchmark, even with its shortcomings, as it's an actual lesbian romance that's feels like it was made for lesbians.

I'll repeat, pay attention to "Muh Male lines!" and listen to Judy's. Stop spreading misinformation because you don't like the game.

Just finished the second Flowers game and just found out they have a post-credits scene if you do all the endings. So now I feel inclined to see the Secret Ending of the first one that I missed.
I can't fucking stand Rikka and I'm not particularly fond of Dalia either (too uptight and a goody two-shoes for my liking), so I wonder if I should even bother replaying to see their endings or should I just skip ahead to the Secret Ending?
Do their routes redeem them in any way?
>>
>>3706856
Rikka blackmails Suoh into a relationship in her route, so no, it does not redeem her. Which also doesn't make any sense because she's saying "be gay with me or I'll tell the whole school that you're gay". If you already dislike Rikka then her route will make you want to throw your monitor out the window. Dahlia's route ends with a "I love you like a daughter" scene which breaks Erika's heart, but I thought she was hot so I didn't hate her route. I don't remember if the first game had a secret ending, but if it did, it was probably just Suoh resolving to find out why Mayuri left. I do remember the second game's secret ending, but only because Yuzuriha is a lying cunt.
>>
>>3706856
Speaking about unlockable scenes, remember not to miss the extra chapters you unlock (both in Etè and Automne) in the main menu when you get all the endings, since they are quite important for Suoh's story.
>>
>>3706817
To be fair, if you're really into those kinks then the grind does eventually kinda get taken over by those kinks intergrating themselves into the game.

Trying to find non-vn games with yuri that are not 3rd-person RPGs is suffering to the nth degree.
I'm currently on a Turn-Based Tactics itch and after clearing FE3H, Divinity OriSins 2, and even X-Com 2 with an girls team (with extensive lore about how each girl is in lesbians with another), the itch still hasn't gone away, but the games seemingly have.

Please rec me some more Nee-sans.
>>
>>3707280
most games that aren't VNs or RPGs don't have enough plot to be yuri. like, you can play spelunky and make girls rescue and smooch girls, but it doesn't mean anything
>>
>>3707280
Turn based ones I know about:
- SaGa Frontier - Asellus's story (There are 7/8 stories depending on whether you play classic or remastered). Just don't go full human, which isn't considered canon anyways.
- Blue Reflection series
- Mary Skelter - Mary Skelter 2 has the yuri MC as the main lead and then she's also in Finale
>>
>>3707173
>Eiyuden-Chronicle-Rising
regarding just the game above, it seems there might be decent bonding between the heroines as teammates. The developer made Control which is a decent female lead game.
>>
>>3707355
>developer made Control
Control? The connected to Alan Wake and Max Payne whack him Control? W...what's causing them to make an anime game? Are you sure you don't mean the same publisher?
>>
>>3707296
Thanks Nee-san.
I already have BRR and Mary Skelter in backlog, but I'm still in a bit of a "Tactics" phase because just regular turn-based games aren't cutting it for me at the moment.
Didn't know about SaGa tho so that's something new
>>
>>3707384
Do keep in mind the SaGa games are absolutely zoinked from a gameplay perspective. Like I'm a fan but they're one hell of an acquired taste. Definitely not just something you can boot up and run around in.
>>
>>3707371
I think the company just picked up the Kickstarter. Eiyuden is the spiritual successor to the now dead thanks to Konami Suikoden series which has 100s of characters. Some of which developed relationships with one another, and some happens to have the gay. That being said this game series was released on the PS1 days so there are only 1 known gay character.

Konami back then was a huge gaming company ran by old farts.

There's also a touhou super robot wars game, which should have a fan translation..? Touhou is always at least sorta gay. Gensou Shoujo Taisen is the name, aka Fantasy Maiden Wars. There is a complete box by now, which combines the previous releases and polishes the earlier stuff.

Is it stable enough now to attempt the "bang your mom" route? I remember trying it the first time and a buncha triggers were wacked/bugged and it messed up the whole sequence. At least I manage to get Aru though so all was not lost.

>>3707476
Completed V which was fun, but the other one doesn't have any series that I cared about so after half a dozen missions it felt like a slog so I stopped.
I do remember being curious about the Touhou SRW some time back. Might check that out. MokouXKaguya is one of my OG ships back in the day

It feels more episodic if anything, you have 10 hours of gameplay on the first chapter. Completely playable with zero bugs. That being said don't expect a completed story.

The good news is the Dragon Age modders seems to have taken up with this game. Since it is technically the spiritual successor to DA:O. It's probably the few games besides DA:0 that I kept installed on my PC.
>>
>>3707644
I assume you can't play as Shadowheart/Lae'zel and romance the other?
>>
>>3707648
Oh man, that would be spicy.
>>
>>3707648
You can since Shadowheart is a pre-made character but Lae'zel is kinda ugly so I made my own character. That being said I'll probably do a run with SH as MC now that there are mods that makes Lae.zel look more appealing.

>>3707650
How hard is it, since from what little I played they basically contradict each other on choices? Also she's beautiful excuse you.
>>
>>3707662
How hard is what? The game? You can make it as hard or as easy as you want.

>from what little I played they basically contradict each other on choices?
Yes they hate each other but they soon warm up to each other towards the end of the chapter. Is the romance between them resolved like with MC? No, at least not during the first chapter.
>>
>>3707666
How hard is it to romance the other when you play with either of them was the thought. So there's a full romance in chapter 1, as in "finished"?
>>
>>3707669
Resolved meaning the SH and MC becomes a couple. With a make out scene, no sex yet.

In regard to Lae'zel and MC they become closer friends, no yuri yet, that being said I'm not too familiar since again she's fucking ugly.

IDK about SH + Lae'zel.
>>
>>3707681
Oh, you were talking about MC with either of them all this time. What I meant was if it was possible to play as Shadowheart and romance Lae'zel or vice versa.
>>
>>3707687
Well the new patch made it possible to make the five main character the main character. It wasn't possible before.
>>
>>3707681
Lae'zel's sex scene is strongly friends with benefits and a budding romance while Shadowheart's is more typical rpg fair.
>>3707687
Considering the devs are the people that did Div:OS2 it's safe to say that ShadowheartxLae'zel will be possible and probably some degree of unique since they're predetermined characters
>>
>>3707610
Not touching it before it's out of early access. I did the same mistake with DoS2 and never again. I want to enjoy whole story, not one chapter on repeat only to get sick of it.

Anon, romances in RPGs are a side thing. Don't hold them to the same standards to genres that are more dedicated to it, like VNs and Dating Sims.

Just enjoy them for them for what they are.

>>3707280
If you're after turn based RPGs, try Solasta: Crown of the Magister. There's no romance, really, but if you're at the point of shipping your X-Com team it wouldn't be too difficult to do it to your party of four adventurers.

Can you read Japanese? If you can, that expands your options with indie stuff like ts_tassan's Mahou Shoujo or a couple of yuri-friendly SRPGs on DLsite (though one of them that's also on Steam confusingly has yuri in the name and a girl cast, but apparently it's not actually yuri).
Out of commercial stuff, Super Heroine Chronicle has its yuri moments, though many of the crossover characters are originally from het franchises. SRW T was already mentioned, but it's still an SRW game about giant robots with mostly male pilots (but still worth playing because SRW is just awesome anyway). I feel like I'm missing something obvious, but can't put my finger on it right now.
>>
There's also Disciples Liberation if you tolerate western stuff, haven't played it but it has a FeMC who can romance other women.
>>
>>3708359
For a D&D 5th edition it's a good adaptation, the response is good, it's an early release so there's still multiple GB updates on the regular, almost all the dialogue is voiced decently which is rare these days. The only issue I have is with the character models, particularly the faces which makes syncing up the lips to the dialogue difficult. The studio Tactical Adventures makes no bones about the lack of a romance option so I'm not too salty about that.

Fairly close. I haven't played much 5th ed and the last I played before 5th was 3.5. As far as I can see it's close. The battlefields are in 3 dimensions, so having people in your party with ranged attacks, proficiency in Athletics, Acrobatics, along with a high Strength and Dexterity stat to make the checks necessary to climb and jump is almost mandatory. Same thing with visibility; Darkvision is huge. All in all, it is possible to cheese your way, especially since you can just use unlimited points in character creation to slap all 18s on your stats and save scum for the difficult skill checks, but people would have found a way anyway.

>the Anti-Butch fag literally prefers dicks to masculine women
To the suprise of absolutely no one.
>>
>>3709255
I didn't ever state I had any liking to futas. All I said was that overbuffed lesbian character models aka Abby, Zarya, Hildryn would be a little more feminine than actual futanari who are ambiguous at least. But you taking words out of my mouth to try to grasp at straws makes me regret giving the benefit of doubt to your posts.
Any characters with derivatives of high testosterone — be it beards, bodybuilder mass, dicks, baldness are simply unappealing to me. And so I'm indifferent to these designs even if they do happen to be linked with /u/ ingame. You can't just expect everyone to have the same tastes as you.

I know nobody cares about this anymore, but damn, Atelier Sophie 2 disappointed in several levels I wasn't even expecting. Not only it didn't really add much to Sophie/Plachta, It ended up actually developing the closest thing I've seen to yuri in atelier in a while, but one of the characters just had to be Sophie's het granny, which Sophie makes sure to tell her she'll be a great wife every chance she gets. If only they gave this much spotlight to Ryza and Klaudia in Ryza's games I'd have been happy, but no, they have to do this with a character we know what happens with her. I think Sophie has to be my most hated character in atelier, and I hate her whole bloodline now, hopefully it will die with her, because alchemy can do anything in this world other than making yuri happen.
>>
>>3709285
I dunno pal, I liked that young Plachta valued the prospect of meeting Sophie in her future so much that she gave up her memories and knowledge gained in Erde Wiege to ensure the events leading up to it would not change. As for Ramizel and Elvira, I can see what you mean, but weren't you just setting yourself up for disappointment when we knew from the start what Ramizel's deal would be? Taking it out on Sophie is petty too and she had great scenes with Ramizel, especially at the end. Sophie/Doll Plachta was never going to be brought further than where it was at the start of Firis.
>>
>>3709285
To be honest, even though I like my yuri, I've never seen Sophie Plachta as much. To me, Sophie 2 not doing much with it, was pretty obvious. It's not like it didn't do anything either. Just about as much as you'd expect from these two, really. They always had this weird platonic feeling to me.
Mysterious only had Firis Il to me, and that also just if you have the DX version of Lydie and Sue, OR bought the respective DLC. Doesn't sound like much, but considering Dusk, it was actually a step up. As far as I remember, Dusk was completely empty. You could still try to ship some girls, but you didn't have much to go with.

Lulua will probably not be beaten though. Aside of the classic Totori Mimi, Lulua has two girls herself as well. One misunderstands her intentions as a romantic approach and ends up fine with it, after thinking things through for several days, the other states she's not viewing Lulua as a friend like she thinks, but as more.

In the end Atelier will be Atelier though. Shipping fuel? Yes. More? No. Regardless of het or yuri. Either the protagonists don't get it, or they keep it ambiguous enough. Totori in Atelier Lulua however really feels like she learned how to push all the buttons of Mimi. ALL of them. In the past she did so without realizing what's going on, and was one of the cruelest airheads in general. 15 years later and she definitely realizes what she's doing and likes it now.
Ryza was a bit of an exception on the het front though I guess. But fuck Ryza anyway.

>but weren't you just setting yourself up for disappointment when we knew from the start what Ramizel's deal would be?
They could've put a different girl in Ramizel's spot to Elvira's affection. I wasn't sold much on Ramizel even being here like you feel, because at the end of the day Sophie gets all those sweet memories with her grandma just to go directly back to a world she's DEAD, rather depressing to the only ending you can get in the game.
>>3709307
I mean, it's one of the things with Sophie Plachta, even though Sophie's one of the most popular characters, Sophie Plachta fan art is basically unexistent while even today I see here and there TotoMimi stuff. Sophie Plachta's relationship in general is just weak, not just for being platonic.
I know better to expect outright romance from Atelier, but they just have nothing to lose by making good relationships. People go on Ryza expecting stuff with how much Ryza and Klaudia got marketed together, and then it's fucking nothing, you go to Sophie 2 expecting nothing, but then get something but it's with a done character. Terrible decisions all over.
>>
>>3709318
Even the first 10/15 hours of Ryza are pushing them hard and then it just peters out into nothing. Dunno what’s been up with the writing post Arland.
>>
>>3709323
Exactly, if it had any story relevance later as Ramizel and Elvira did, I would've been incredibly happy. Instead it literally turns into nothing and Klaudia just fucks off to stick with her daddy.
>>
>>3709323
>>3709326
Klaudia is the most nothing character in both games and will undoubtedly follow suit in a hypothetical third one. She's the only party member in 2 whose events aren't tied to any story progression and that can be completed in their entirety as soon as character storylines open up. It should be obvious she exists only as yuribait and that they'll never have Ryza take an interest in her or anybody else.
>>
>>3709332
>It should be obvious she exists only as yuribait and that they'll never have Ryza take an interest in her or anybody else.
This is exactly what I'm complaining about, to be honest, do serviceable yuribait, atleast, they can only gain from it. The thing with Ryza is a whatever, any waifufag that is adverse to yuri/yuribaiting would be intimidated and leave just on the marketing alone, and they probably wouldn't be buying atelier games to start with.

Haven't played it yet but from what I've seen and heard, it's fine. Gameplay wise it's still the same old Rune Factory formula, so if you like that, you'll like the game.

all releases associated with the studio at this point:

Heart of the Woods and its associated spinoff around the trans character

The prequel to a now-canceled project which involved a non-binary alien

One demo for a project that was supposed to come out in 2020, and then in 2021, and now in 2022, sure, really.

Thought for I heard them say it was a het couple for the main game, guess they pivoted. It was clearly said from the start that first snow was the only yuri couple so I'm not broken up about this, but I still let a moment of silence pass for the hope of another yuri game that never was.

I know I'm an outlier on this but I'd much rather deal with a trans character than a they/them because I keep getting confused and having to reread things. I would rather people used a made-up pronoun because at least then I could get used to it and know exactly who it referred to.
>>
>>3711013
That bothers me too, but everyone seems to have thrown their lot in with singular they, so this is the world we live in now. It’s particularly confusing when you’re reading anything featuring a NB person and a group being mentioned at the same time.
>>
>>3711071
>It’s particularly confusing when you’re reading anything featuring a NB person and a group being mentioned at the same time.

Sis, that's just shit writing, you could literally say the same thing about yuri because two or more women with the "she" pronoun are interacting and it's confusing if the writer is a dumbfuck who isn't aware you need to be careful to distinguish them. Also, "they" was used as a gender-neutral singular since long before NB was even an identity, which is why most people decided to just go with what existed rather than make up some dumb-sounding substitute.

The only reason anyone should be getting up in arms about this is if the MC turns out to be some incredibly unfortunately-named, effeminate trap who is disguised by the gender neutral pronouns.
>>
>>3711141
There's absolute nothing good that can come out of this they/them MC. Being a trap is the least of your worries, that you can't tell if it's a female protagonist is bad enough already.
>>
>>3711141
>Also, "they" was used as a gender-neutral singular since long before NB was even an identity
Absolutely true, but it was also used in much more tightly circumscribed ways. We don't always know all the grammar rules we're following until we hear a non-native speaker mess them up. There used to be ways and circumstances in which 'them' was used, which are so built-in to common English that many people complaining about singular they will still USE a 'they' in the argument without even noticing it, because they're using it in those old forms. The new uses are awkward, and perhaps because they are already awkward, seem to prevent some writers from recognising when they've gone from mildly awkward to downright confusing because of multiple possible antecedents for 'they' in their sentence.

Singular they for a distinct individual works a lot better in speech and in person than it does in writing. In written works there were a large number of alternate pronouns popular in the 90s and 00s, particularly among members of purely-textual virtual worlds (MUDs, MUCKs, MOOs, etc). Despite a wide number of gender-divergent people in those places, 'they' was extremely unpopular as a pronoun choice. Most people used stuff like shi/hir, e/em, or *e which is impossible to use in speech.

Anyway. You're correct that it's largely a bad writing issue, but since these days it's considered inappropriate to actually explain the pronoun to the reader, with new characters in writing there's always going to be some initial hiccups before you realise that 'they' means a single person.

I’m also familiar with its use in the past, which was often primarily to obfuscate, like trying to avoid defining what gender your same-sex partner was.

Its cute and I like the characters and their interactions.

But as a game I don't get why its a thing... Why is it a mobile gacha game when like 7 days in its 99% just a VN with some slapped on combat and terrible transition gameplay...
I wish they just made this an audio novel or VN instead of a game.
And maybe it gets better later, but the focus being entirely on the main class kinda defeats the purpose of a gacha game doesn't it? Like some of the other girls have cute designs but I only care about the main 6 girls because they're the ones in the story and it feels weird to break them up.

>>3712228
It's a co-production between mobage devs and KEY, and KEY is known for making visual novels. A lot of mobage present their stories in VN-style so KEY just hopped into the scene with their VN expertise to put out something that leans more towards VNs. This is infinitely more profitable than just making a VN as well.
>focus being entirely on the main class
A bunch of other characters get focus, especially through events, but some in the main story as well. They're just avoiding the usual mobage pitfall where they barrage you with a hundred characters and expect people to care about them. Instead opt to build up the core team and then start expanding to the others.

Purely for financial reasons. Key's VNs weren't selling much anymore and Maeda's last anime attempts both failed miserably. They're still making VNs, but they're a lower priority and generally relegated to less prominent writers or guest writers like Romeo Tanaka and Ryukishi.
>Like some of the other girls have cute designs but I only care about the main 6 girls because they're the ones in the story and it feels weird to break them up.
Yeah, half the squads definitely only exist for gacha reasons. Hasn't stopped 30G, 31C and especially 31B from outshining 31A though. Maybe that'll change in the future, but 31A has been stale for a while now, with the girls' repetitive interactions only being interrupted by RukaYuki moments (whether silly or serious) or plot reveals. We haven't gotten many of the latter so far and I'm too tired of Yuki to enjoy the former much anymore.

See, and here I am, as the type who never gacha'd, and would've liked something like this as a normal game. But including the gameplay.

I like me some simple grind and stats going up stuff. I like running around the school, listening in to some of the dialogue, or talking to people.
But given how expensive extra gacha is anyways, who knows. It might just work.

Still to early in myself though. Only beat 3 days. In... 3 days of playing. I did already throw some money on it though, just for the heck of it.

>>3712295
Key actually considered Summer Pockets a big success. Even though it was a shitty and rushed game. The market is definitely still there.
But it's hard to deny that gacha is big right now, and if you wanna get huge success, that's the way to go. Bigger risk, but more potential reward. It's also a more.. steady thing. They develop it and get a relatively steady income past the initial release. Once interest goes down, invested budget goes down until it vanishes. For consumers this isn't great, but for companies it is.

The VN market gets more and more dominated by short releases for "low" prices and is incredible stale in terms of what kind of VNs get developed. There are few things you can do and expect it to sell. Maeda probably just wanted something different for once, looking at what Heaven Burns Red tries to do. There's unfortunately no market for something like that.. outside of gacha.

There's nothing to miss out on at the moment besides the score attack rewards so you can mostly play the game as slow as you'd like. Honestly grateful for that because the gacha aspects are undeniably annoying, especially with chapter 3 being the power wall that it is. Maeda writing yuri is literally a treat for both my past and present selves, but I still cannot personally justify spending any money on the game because I know where it'd be going.
>It's also a more.. steady thing. They develop it and get a relatively steady income past the initial release. Once interest goes down, invested budget goes down until it vanishes. For consumers this isn't great, but for companies it is.
HBR is huge among whales from what I've seen. Given that the game has what is easily Maeda's best writing in over a decade, I don't see interest dying down all too quickly, especially among big spenders. It's kind of sad to see just how much more money it's making than a regular Key VN, but at least Maeda's at the wheel and he's finally woken up after all these years, so I can't complain too much. I just wish I liked RukaYuki more.

I don't want to sound like Current Year Man, but genuinely why would you make catfights over marrying a guy the plot to your game in Current Year.

>>3712365
The sad thing is, that a game like Heaven Burns Red would be impossible outside of gacha nowadays.

All ages VNs do not have a big market, and are largely pure love (not yuri), or have some chuuni-esque stuff going on, with male protagonists. But even then, they don't get particularly big. There's also otome games and yaoi that's somewhat around, but that's a completely different thing. Something along the lines of magical girl stuff basically does not exist, unless it features hardcore ero (of the not kind stuff), or has a male protagonist making it into something completely different.
And if you wanna make a normal (console) game, you are either Nintendo, have to have a BIG budget, or won't be selling much. With that in mind, a "game" like this also wouldn't really fly. Graphics and all.

Japan was always best at games you can make in small-ish teams. Think ps2 times. The mobile market offers chances, and has enough successful works that are similar enough to Heaven Burns Red. As much as I hate to say that, it only makes sense to do it like this. If Maeda would've done a normal VN again, it would've been another Little Busters, or Clannad. And I'd assume at some point a writer wants to do something else.


It's both sad and nice at the same time. Sad that it has to be gacha, nice that stuff like this at least exists. The business model is also so much better, considering there are mostly 2 kinds of people. Those who don't want to pay and pirate if necessary, and those who like to support what they enjoy. Gacha gets as much as people can/want to pay, while upfront payment will never be able to achieve that. The entry barrier there is strong.

Are there any yuri crying games besides Seabed? I used to be into Key's stuff until Planetarian, then I lost interest in anything het. The plot for Narcissu 2 sounded gay but I never got around to playing it. I've played most of the well-known yuri VNs by now and I'm so bored that I'm even contemplating playing those Sakura Noun games.

Gave the game a quick look and I'm kind of baffled at how that person could confuse turn-based with whatever was said.

Anyways, the game looks interesting. Thanks >>3712252 for the plug, would've never heard about this otherwise.

Yumeutsutsu Re:Master is on a flash sale on Fanatical for the next ~44 hours at a historical low, USD19.49.
https://www.fanatical.com/en/game/yumeutsutsu-re-master

Re:After is also on sale there for USD19.99, and while it’s not quite the historic low (USD18.49), it’s lower than I’ve seen it anywhere else. You can also get a 5% off coupon when you make a purchase on Fanatical, so if you buy Re:Master in one transaction, you can use the coupon you get from that to take $1 off Re:After.
https://www.fanatical.com/en/game/yumeutsutsu-re-after

For those who aren’t familiar with Fanatical, since they are a bit more obscure than some of their competitors, they are a legitimate Steam key seller like Humble Bundle, not a grey market reseller like CD Keys.
>>
>>3712559
Speaking of Humble Bundle and potentially gay deals, Pathfinder: Kingmaker plus two of the four DLCs for it are in the USD13 tier of their newest bundle. It’s not a great deal if that’s all you’re interested in, though, since the Imperial Edition has been pretty close to USD13 before.

So yeah, Heaven Burns Red has its 100 days anniversary, and if you log in 10 times between tomorrow at daily reset (?) and june 13th, you get a free ten pull with a guaranteed SS. I'd assume you can't get two, but who knows.

I've cleared chapter 1 day 7 myself now, and am surprised that chapter 1 isn't over. Still fun. It's curious how the game has literally auto grind. You can tell it to just grind arena battles, while your phone is on stand-by, for 8 hours max. (more as you get levels) This doesn't need to recharge either. You just need to get your results, and can basically start another one right away. Gacha respecting your time? Apparently.

Still fun to see MC hit on all kinds of girls. Latest victim for me, the leader of the "senpai" brigade. Her speech about how liking girls as a girl is definitely nothing bad... and you shouldn't deny yourself from those feelings, was something. She can totally be pushed into that kinda relationship. This is more gay than I though, though MC can't necessarily be taken too serious.

Also, if anyone hasn't gotten their 1k free quartz for a "friend code yet", or plans to start out: You can get that when you use the button on the lower right of your home (you get there past prologue the first time). Any "friend code" works. Mine would be vwbivxdobw9954ty . It's not really friend codes mind you, just some "recommend the game" thingy.
>>
>>3713409
Nice.
I am liking the game, I wish my nip was a bit better. I can understand maybe 40% of it when its just the characters fucking around, about 10% when it gets into the actual story. But god I appreciate fully voiced scenes so much.

Glad you're enjoying it. It's a good thing chapter 4 isn't coming out until a bit later, so you've got time to catch up. Don't rely too much on the autogrind - as great as it is, you have to properly learn the game at some point because of the eventual fuckhuge difficulty spike. What's your team looking like right now? And if you haven't used a referral code yourself thus far, mine is lebt7tvdincz216h.
>if you log in 10 times between tomorrow at daily reset (?) and june 13th, you get a free ten pull with a guaranteed SS. I'd assume you can't get two, but who knows.
If it's a typical 10 ticket with 1 guaranteed SS then you can definitely get more than one SS from it. It's just luck, as it always is.
>I've cleared chapter 1 day 7 myself now, and am surprised that chapter 1 isn't over.
Yeah, the length is a nice surprise. There's filler in all 3 chapters, but on the whole they're all pretty long. The first one is actually half length compared to the 2nd and 3rd, so you're in for a treat.
>Still fun to see MC hit on all kinds of girls.
Just wait 'til you run into the lesbian harem orchestrator. Even for Ruka, Shiki's a handful. Do her events when you can, they're a lot of fun.

>>3713412
Just use DeepL to cover the rest of your needs. If you feed it many paragraphs it tends to shit itself, but one line at a time for the lines you're struggling with is perfectly fine. I don't know the slightest bit of Japanese and I'm uninterested in learning the language, and it's carried me just fine through the entirety of the story so far. The most I'm missing would be some of the humor, but it's typical Maeda/Key humor. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's not.
>>
>>3713344
Confirmed not yuri. Several anons have sacrificed themselves testing this game in previous threads.
Here's what I remember from the discussions;
>FeMC only has 1 female party member she's close to; her younger sister
>Said younger sister keeps harping nonstop about how she likes MaleMC
>FeMC eventually ships them and encourages imouto to go for it
>They end up together. FeMC ends the game alone

Also iirc, I think this is the same team that wrote God Eater 1 and 2's story. In those, the writers literally could not write a story where they couldn't self insert so even though you can create a FeMC, there's always an emo-guy character that was the crux of the story.

They got a new writing team for GE3 and Code Vein which fixed these and made the story more player-centric (CV even had a waifu who's only attached to you), but I see they're back to their shenanigans in Scarlet Nexus
>>
>>3713487
>They end up together. FeMC ends the game alone
Uh, I think you're misremembering considering the sister gets turned into a monster fairly early on then later dies protecting Kasane. It's not a /u/ game by any stretch, but still.
>>
>>3713494
Thanks for the correction. Yep its still stupid nontheless
>>
>>3713487
The real main character of Code Vein is still a bland man (Louis), and the player character is literally nothing more than a plot device, but the PC does at least have a dedicated waifu.

Might be for the best. Having abysmal pull luck while also saving up for someone whose class is terrible in gameplay at the moment is a special kind of hell.
>>
>>3713412
If you don't get something, people here might be able to help.
I'd assume most people's Japanese here isn't perfect, but at least I'm pretty used to playing games in Japanese, so I can (usually) understand the gameplay ideas. Fully voiced dialogue definitely helps. I can read kanji just fine, until things get technical, here voices help me personally.

>>3713569
I could pay just fine, being not in Japan. (Germany) Was surprised, but it works.

>>3713487
It was actually the Tales of Vesperia team, as far as I know. The story may've been insanely anime, but the writing quality was still much above God Eater's. Doesn't necessarily help it much, but with what story it told, it could've been a LOT worse. I'd assume the writer(s) weren't exactly responsible for what kind of setting/story they were supposed to do. Writing videogame stories is often a shitty job.
>>
>>3712295
I think the protagonist group would benefit from either being a harem or "everyone are for everyone" mexican telenovela mode. Right now they separated them in 3 designated pairings, but only the main character one gets some actual content, 2 others just barely get some crumbs once every x hours, usually as a comedy scene, even though I find both much more interesting than the mc pair.
>>
>>3713538
Imo Louis's story stops once you meet his sister, the first of the 4 pillars.
The other 3 are related to your other party members so he doesn't butt in, maybe for a line or two but he doesn't hog the spotlight.
After that its all about discovering how "McGuffin" you are in the grand scheme of things and unless you fucked up and get the bad end, he doesn't get back his prominence that he was given in the first act.

That's leagues better than GE1&2 where you're literally the one stomping all the giant gods but every one else can't stop worrying about edgy-what's-his-face throughout the game

Yeah, I'm with you. 31A's dynamic is a lot worse than it could be, and I've especially grown tired of Yuki in particular. It's fun early on, and clearly yuri artists still see something in the main pairing, but the fun wore off pretty quickly for me. At least with the recent reveals we may finally have a reason to start expecting something different in future chapters, but I'm not getting my hopes up yet.

>>3713728
In the first three episodes, every episode is a little-bit triangley except that there is absolutely a Correct Route with just one girl and the other option, if you take it, is a small non-canon offshoot. each of the first three is based around a different protagonist and pairing. the fourth, iirc, wraps back around to the original protagonist in order to resolve her drama that's been left hanging.

>>3713748
it's an all-girls posh boarding school, but it's posh in a westaboo way, trying to be very european and catholic and making all kinds of random references to american movies and music in ways that if you're not used to this writer will make you wonder if that was really in the original text (it was). they have endless tea parties and nuns and ballet lessons.

and random 'mysteries' that are kind of dumb but will get you game overs if you fail them even though that makes no sense (another quirk of this author)
>>
>>3713814
Personally I miss having tea parties at my old catholic private school. The nuns made the best cookies and the calories were much needed for the equestrian lessons after our short tea recess.
>>
>>3713824
I actually did go to an all-girls religious school with mandatory ballet lessons, though waiting until high school age to start the girls on violin seems strange to me, we were straight in on violin and piano at the age of six or so.
>>
>>3713808
I unfortunately can't say. I did the same (couple of days ago), and could just pay. Google "Ireland" is on the bill.

Not sure if it's important, but my google account is pretty fresh and it was my first thing I purchased with it. The account is located where I live though. (not Japan)
>>
>>3713834
I could see holding off til highschool if they were receiving a piano education prior to that for music theory purposes and auditory familiarity.
Violin can be rough on your fingers and it's hard for kids to work with the bows without breaking them or misusing them. It requires a finer touch than most instruments so I can see waiting until they have foundational knowledge.
>>
>>3713839
Makes sense. I was a piano girl, I've never played the violin, I just remember that they had tiny ones for kids our size.

It does seem kind of funny to me that, in my school, those were the two things most girls were learning when we were young, and then almost everyone dropped both of them completely at junior high to switch into Band.

Not sure how much of that is that it was easier for our parents to make us perfect little ladies before puberty, and how much it was the need to be competitive with other schools in more normal things. Band and Choir are normal.

One girl in my class studied the harp before junior high, same sort of thing but way less common.

So just asking if anyone knows. Does the CRPG Arcanum of Steamworks and Magicka Obscura have any romance. If so does it have any F/F romance?
>>
>>3713870
According to the hella yuri listing, you can play a female PC and hit up girls in a brothel, but no serious F/F romance. However, I have not played it.

>>3713683

>>
>>3713870
>>3713881
you can also date one of your followers who's playersexual, provided you picked the right race and are not ugly. I got so many fond memories of this game, one of my first /u/ vidya experience. good times.
>>
>>3713898
Someimtes they don't put up a listing properly until they get back from a con but I don't know, has anyone tried asking them on twitter?
>>
Huh, so Tales of Maj'Eyal (ToME) has /u/ in it. Unexpected, but certainly welcome.
>>
>>3713926
Oh damn, looks like one hell of an autism simulator

Tell me more
>>
Yo, fellow anons.
I just finished Sutekina kanojo no tsukurikata and wow that is very fucked up.
I usually enjoy darker yuri but I didn't find much enjoyment out of it. Curious to hear if anyone else has thoughts on it or recommendations for better dark yuri.
>>
>>3713926
Wait what, I played the shit out of ToME when I was younger and a bit of a loser and I don't remember any. Aside from maybe nebulous stuff like saving the sun paladin chick if you're also a girl.
>>
>>3713930
ToME is a great roguelike RPGs. Definitely one of the best in the genre. The bit of unexpected /u/ is just a small cherry on a large, delicious cake.

>>3713937
How long ago? Because is gone through alot changes over the years. Current version is 1.7.4


The /u/ content is saving a girl from a daemon and you can start a romance with her if you're successful. It's very basic, but it's there. It even has a small effect on the ending.

So, you only play roguelikes with text-based graphics?
While your adherence to tradition is commendable, i'd say you're missing out.

Someone did ask on twitter and they said there WILL be a physical version they just don't have it up yet.

>>3714041
That's a huge relief. JAST may have no clue what a calendar is, but at least they didn't ditch the physical release. I think I'd be kept up at nights knowing that my shelf had an empty spot for hiver that would never be filled.

we're in the middle of anime central annnouncements, maybe something else will happen?

>>3714081
Would be nice if Ever Maiden got a TL release date.
>>
>>3714027
I play modern roguelikes built around having graphics, I just find really traditional ones that used ASCII originally tend to be pretty ugly when they have graphic tilesets added. I played Angband for the first time late nights in college, and the stark black and white, highly representational look really added to the sense of exploring the unknown depths. But that could have been the fatigue.
>>
>>3714085
There was an ascii tileset, though I haven't played since before it was out of beta so I guess it might been removed. It wasn't the greatest but it was usable.
>>
So apart from ToME, are there any other roguelikes with /u/?

I think Devs that make /u/ games should really branch out a little more and not just do VNs.
I know it's not literally all VNs, but that seems to be what they mainly are.
>>
>>3714142
VNs are accessible for people whose main skill is imagining girls smooching. Even a simple indie puzzle game requires more coding and design skills than a lot of people have, and if you want to go beyond that, you start needing a lot more people and a lot more budget.

Most roguelikes have no romance at all afaik. There are some /u/ strategy games where you're collecting cute girls at least
>>
>>3714142
if you're up for 'invisible protagonist whose gender is never mentioned' games, Hearts of the Dungeon List is a really simple rpg with datable girls
>>
>>3714142
I mean most traditional roguelikes only have the tiniest traces of dialog, to say nothing of actual romance. So there ain't gonna be much unless you headcanon the hell out of DCSS or something. ToME is honestly more like one of them modern roguelitey games than a full on roguelike anyway. The genre and /u/ don't really mix.
>>
>>3714142
Not really, almost all of them have no romance and many have no companions and the barest of excuse plots. Closest I can think is a sandbox like C:DDA where you could do things like recruit female NPCs, turn them into catgirls and give them wedding rings if you want, but there's no actual relationships besides a simple is your friend/is neutral/wants you dead.

I guess there's also elona which does technically have marriage but there's no real difference between marrying a cute girl or a horse.
