Newest Japanese VN from Norn (a company primarily known for their nukige with light-novel-grade-long titles) is on Steam suddenly. It's all-ages. And probably a nukige as well, originally.

Also, the original title is... *deep breath* Kemomimi Harem Vacation ~Inaka de Nonbiri Mofumofu Kemonomimi Shoujo-tachi to Kozukuri Zanmai~,

A nukige. Censored. On steam. No 18+ release.

...

...

Alright. I'm just gonna go over there to smash my face into my keyboard now, good day.

(The worst part is, the steam crowd will jump at this like crazy, which might make the company think this was a good idea... sweet lord have mercy...)

Translated by a certain "Zoo Corporation", huh? If VNDB is anything to go by, it seems it was created/hired by a bunch of Japanese companies.

As for what little we can see of the English, I don't see any glaring issues. That's good.
Wouldn't be the first time a Japanese company suddenly releases something in English with minimal effort put forth. Doesn't seem that's the case. Good.

Now... it's a nukige... I can see the appeal of playing all ages versions of them but... What kind is it? Did they add scenes to replace the gaping holes left by the sex? Did they just cut it out? If it's the latter... Even I'd have to admit it'd be nothing but an hour of meaningless content.

 

Edit: If that long.

Not necessarily. Certain questions will definitely be raised.

:wahaha:

Yeah, hopefully a ton of these comes in. But based on the sales of things like Nekopara, a lot of people might quite simply not know that this has a Japanese boob version, and just happily buy the game with the cute anime characters. That's what I fear. And when the game sells like hell, the developers are like, "hell yeah! It worked!"

If that does lead to more nukige from them being put on steam as all-ages versions, I'll just... guh :amane:

I just... can't even.

 

But hey, the game looks cute, so now I have another nukige added to my reading list at the very least. #The power of knowing Japanese. にゃははぁー

I am eager to find out, because this https://vndb.org/v17515 is also coming to Steam. So based on the experience we'll know what to expect.

Hell, I didn't know that it has a 18+ version when I picked all three at a discount. I mixed it up with something else, lol. I only realized that after I had encountered those conspicuous "there-should-be-ecchi-here"-shaped holes in the "story".

Steam is not worth it for visual novels. Please get your acts together devs and try to understand what your overseas fans really wants. :amane:

Note that "Visual Novels" =/= Nukige and Eroge.
I can see the argument for the latter, but there are many different kinds of visual novels, some of which (short and meaningful -- Narcissu, Planetarian, some Western VNs) are entirely appropriate for the digital distribution platform.

I'm also not positive Eroge is wholly ill-suited to the distribution platform, but I'm not starting a discussion on the topic here.

Wouldn't be the first time. Debonosu games are basically nukige and they've tried putting their shit on steam for low-effort cash grabs. Also there was that one company that tried to put their game about a masturbation club on steam greenlight... if anyone remembers that shit show...

I was "you know where" and I have counted 300 hundred CG. As you can guess, most of them are H-scenes.

Okay, thanks for confirmation then. Just for my confirmation here, 'low chance' here meaning that the chance for the VN had low sexual content are low (It could also refer to impossible, because after all 0% chance could also said as low here). Sorry.

You don't have to. I made a mistake and after another "carefull styding" I've found out that there are only 80 CG. Still, 90% is hentai. It's nukige, alright. And I really want to know, how long is the Steam version :).

Just going to make a terrible translation of the full title of this VN, just to give you an idea of what kind of game this is:

"Animal eared harem vacation - Indulge in making babies with carefree, fluffy, animal eared girls in the countryside."

I mean, it is almost the same as what they named the English version. Almost.

I was shocked when this popped up in my queue today.  A Norn game on Steam?

Norn games a short, low-priced nukige - straight up porn fests.  Most are 3-4 hours long INCLUDING the reading all the H-scenes and costume variant scenes.  Most also have 15-20 H scenes.  Norn and the dark-side sister company Miel have a small stable of artists and VAs and churn out games, one every few months.  They're the 18+ version of Winged Cloud or Dharker.

But... all ages?  What's going to be left?  1 hour of slice-of-life stuff?

 

The other surprising thing is that the Japanese version had it's digital release, what, 6 weeks ago?  It's still a recent release in Japan, and it's already in English on Steam.  If the translation is actually decent, then they could make a pretty good amount of money releasing quick and often in English.  Especially if there was an 18+ patch... for DLC maybe (flame ON!)?   BTW - current retail is still $32 for the Japanese version.  $9 full, $8 sale, on Steam all-ages.

Except it is, and they do understand. games sell better on steam, period. Publishers don't give a shit about what hardcore fans want if there's an army of normies ready to give them money

Guess I'll hold off a little bit on buying the JP game, to see if they actually listen to their fans or not. They seem pretty responsive, and eager to get into TLing more games in the future so that's nice that least.

For everyone interested in an 18+ patch, go ahead and send them a tweet or comment on the steam discussion to let them know.

If they reintroduce the adult content, why not? I have nothing against Norn; granted, their games aren't anything special (honestly, most of them range from outright godawful to mediocre at most, porn-wise), but every company has it's place and they definitely know theirs. Art is very nice.

What Toranth said - if they're slightly more clever than most of japanese studios willing to share their games with the rest of the world, they might actually adjust their business model and start releasing short games on Steam with 18+ patches aside. They will beat Winged Cloud hands down, solely with their experience :makina:

That said - fuck you, Japan. Another vn with kemonomimis and all we get is porn. Not that I complain, but give us something slightly more solid for once :komari:
