Visual Novel Developer Frontwing’s Announces Steam Release Date for Puzzle/Visual Novel Hybrid Game “Purino Party”
Tokyo, Japan – June 17, 2016 Frontwing has just announced the release date for their new game, “Purino Party.” The game is scheduled to be released via Steam on Wednesday, June 23rd, and will retail at $11.99. The Steam store page is already live, and can be viewed at the following URL:
An adult patch for the game will also be offered, as a free download from the “Purino Party” official website by Frontwing. Applying the patch will add adult content to the CGs that can be obtained in the game.
“Purino Party” is classified as a puzzle game, and it is planned to be released exclusively in English for the PC via Steam. The game is described as “an addictive tile-matching game crossed with what Japan does best: visual novels with cute girls you can fall in love with.”
Frontwing’s scenario writer Kazuya serves as the producer on the project. As a scenario writer, Kazuya has previously worked on Frontwing titles “The Fruit of Grisaia” and “Hatsuru Koto Naki Mirai Yori” (Hatsumira, or From the Future Undying), but this is his first time in the producer’s chair.

From high school romances to hardcore adult material, as well as titles which utilize 3D computer graphics, our games cater to a diverse range of interests.

Our most well-known game series is the Grisaia trilogy, which received an anime adaptation in 2014. Its first installment, “The Fruit of Grisaia,” is widely acclaimed and available on Steam, and the other two games in the series are still undergoing localization into English, with “The Labyrinth of Grisaia” being scheduled to release next week.
