  1. Your Favorite VN of 2019?

    Aoi Sora no Camus. Such a beautiful game. Kai has mainly released magical girl x tentacle nukige with some decent story on the side in the past, so this character based heavy psychological horror game, (that’s a mouthful,) coming from them really surprised me. The game had me thinking about the ending and how beautiful of a story it was for several days after I finished it. It’s one of those games I’d love to wipe my memory off so I can experience it for the first time again.
  2. Heh, actually they are quite challenging to work on specifically because so much of the scenarios are porn. I need to bring out the character traits and so on in the H-scenes since they are the primary bulk of the games, so I can’t just skip through the lines adding a dick here and a pussy there. So the H parts usually take more effort than the non-H parts. Also, since I know what people come for in our games is the porn, I want to make sure it reads as well as I can make it, which is another reason I want to avoid rushing through them. The writer for these games sadly likes to re-use a lot of the same tropes, so it's hard to make the translation revolutionary, but I've been getting better at mixing up the translation for these in our recent titles. I think the quality of our releases in 2020 will be much higher than what we had in 2019, both in terms of development and translation. Edit: Oh and we try to release one game a month, by the way. So yes, we do release a lot of games! Something for everyone, hopefully.
  3. What are some new JVNs coming out this year?

    Specific releases I'm looking forward to this year are the new In'Youchuu game coming in March, Shuffle 2 and Saleté that's coming this month. There's also a new ZION nukige coming this month that seems fun, heh. I also hope the new Inre game will be coming this year, but there's no news on it yet beyond the announcement that was made last year, so not sure about that one. Fingers crossed.
  4. What are some new JVNs coming out this year?

    Are we talking translations, or just general untranslated games? If so, there's literally like 30 coming out each month. (Usually the last Friday of each month.)
  5. This is a very helpful thread, so I went ahead and pinned it! Good work @NowItsAngeTime!
  6. We have an official CherryKissGames Discord too!
  7. Happy new year

    Happy New Year! Insert what did you get for Christmas this year joke.
  8. Happy Christmas!

    Merry new year!
  9. padowo padowo xmas

    Merry "I'll just be working though..." day!
  10. Eroge with huge breasts or Bakunyū

    If you can also take untranslated ones, the Motto! Haramase! series is just pure gold. Insane production values, tons of heroines and sub-heroines, all of which have "big oppais." Then there is Hoshizora no Babylon. This game has everything from AA cups to a Z-cup. Tons of heroines with huge tits, and they are actually very well drawn. (Something I feel certain artists fail at when drawing giant boobs.) A must play if you like big tiddies. Translated, I really only know of the "mainsteam" ones, that you have probably played already. Ultimate Boob Wars and Funbag Fantasy.
  11. Baldr Sky (Out now!)

    I find it so fascinating how big of a difference there is between prices of VNs in the west and here in Japan. 7000-9000 yen for a new game is completely normal here, (so between 70-80usd). In fact, you don't really see them go much cheaper. Usually "older" games are dropped down to 5000-6000 yen. (45-55usd) If you want to buy a big game like Baldr Sky for less than that in Japan, you'll have to wait for some massive sale, and even then you might be out of luck*. The fact that people even find 30usd to be fairly pricy for a standard VN is just crazy to me. Over here 2500-3500 yen is only really standard for shorter titles, like 2-10 hour nukige and stuff like that. There is of course production costs and such to consider for Japanese releases that western ones usually don't need to factor in, but between license costs, translation, editing, programming and everything in between, western releases are far from cheap to make, so it's honestly amazing a profit can be made at these prices. * Assuming we're talking digital. There's always second-hand games, which are a bit cheaper. Most people, myself included, usually go for those, as second-hand is basically good as new in Japan. But even those won't be that much cheaper, unless there's actual damage to the box etc, which is rare.
  12. Love Letter and Shirogane no Soleil. Both fantastic games that are hardly ever mentioned. They deserve way more hype than they currently have in the west. Most people have probably never heard of them. (Unless you follow me on Twitter and heard my rants on how much I like them )
