Over the weekend at Anime Expo MangaGamer kept themselves extremely busy by announcing that they had acquired a number of new titles for release in English which also resulted in three brand new partners for the company. These PC titles range from cuddly romance games, to boys live titles, to otome games, and even something from ClockUp, the minds behind euphoria.
The company has licensed their new partner Chuablesoft’s If You Love Me, Then Say So!, the boys love title from Mada Koubou Hadaka Shitsuji – Naked Butlers, the otome game from new partner Kalmia8 Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome, the spiritual successor to the Da Capo series, D.S. – Dal Segno –, and finally ClockUp’s Maggot baits.
You can check out trailers and descriptions for each of these games from MangaGamer below:
If You Love Me, Then Say So!:
“‘I love you.’––Three simple words that are always hard to say. When do you confess? Where? How? Everyone faces this worry, trying to gauge the proper time, but once you’re going steady, how do you keep it that way? If You Love Me, Then Say So! features an innovative event system with enormous freedom to choose how you spend your time—and when to take the plunge with the girl of your dreams. Is it better to confess early? To wait and see? Countless branching paths wait for you to make that agonizing decision.”
Hadaka Shitsuji – Naked Butlers:
“The singular vision of diaboical genius, Mito Togo—a game for people who love butlers, by someone who loves butlers. Mada Koubou’s debut title has earned itself cult-hit status with its handsome butlers, and its atypical and irreverent take on the BL genre.”
Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome:
“When two handsome young men spot the perfect girl to be their first model and help make a name for themselves, they’re determined to go for broke and make her shine—but first they’ll have to get her out of her house! Can these two really give such an anti-social recluse the makeover she needs to be a star? Or will she be the one to change them in this off-beat romantic comedy?”
“We have something new from Circus––their latest game, and something of a spiritual successor to the Da Capo series, D.S. –Dal Segno-! Happiness. Paradise. Words that mean as many different things as there are people in this earth. What does happiness mean to you? What shape does your paradise take?”
“Once born into this world, you must live. That is the single truth that exists for all life in the beginning. Mentors and models to follow, the will to do good and abhor evil—are all a fiction we learn later, a fiction known as “ideology”. Living this fiction is what makes us human. But do we need such ideology to be human, as we do our limbs? Does that make those who lose or abandon such ideology less than human—does it make them limbless maggots? If so, then this tale is devoid of humans—it is a tale of maggots. Crawling to survive, like the maggots we are.”
