Cannonball Fantranslation release

Cannonball_main

 

Cannonball is a sci-fi racing genre VN by Liar-Soft, who’s famous for their “Steampunk” setting games with concept where Tesla has a giant robot and Mary Clarissa Christie is a kawaii waifu or something.

Don’t know about this one except nice art and it has catgirl lolis or something. It’s set in the same continuity as their other games, I think?

A Look At: Adith The Forgotten Alchemy – We’re not Atelier, really!

Adith Title

So Japanese games have at least some kind of rudimentary coverage in the English world, even if it’s sometimes sparse depending on the particular game in question, but one aspect of the gaming world that has almost non-existent coverage are games from other Asian countries – Chinese, Korean and so on.

Today’s entry was brought to my attention by someone who thought it might be of interest to me – a Korean RPG that’s supposedly an Atelier clone. What magical surprises are in store for me…? Continue reading

A Look At: Alice to Eternal

Title

When ZUN first created his humble SHMUP on the good ol PC-98, he probably didn’t expect it to explode in popularity like it has, but explode it did and today Touhou has formed its own community of widespread fanworks that has reached out to a huge audience in all forms and shapes. Outside of SHMUPS, Touhou fangames include RPGs both turn-based and action, platformers, Strategy games… really just about every genre you can think of due to its prevalence.

One of Touhou’s drawing points is the varied cast of cute female characters so you would kind of think that lots of people would have the idea of creating a Touhou Romance Visual Novel, but apparently they’re much more rare than I thought and this is the only one I’ve know of, so let’s take a look! Continue reading
