A bit of relief after the previous release, I suppose – and another Touhou doujin, this time seen on Pixiv. And a part of a larger book apparently, though I haven’t bumped into the rest of it… anyone? Either way, it’s a pairing that I don’t think has been featured on the blog previously, and it’s a rather nice story in its own right!
Also, some of you might be aware of the fanmade yuri role-playing game that has surfaced from the shadowy depths of covert development not so long ago… What can I say, I’ve applied to be a beta-tester out of curiosity and originally planned to write a mini-review of the beta – however, the scale of this project has proven vastly larger than I predicted, and considering the amount of work and dedication evidently put in the game, I simply couldn’t possibly shove it off with a half-baked review.
As such, I will just advertise the /u/ thread containing the original news and the appeal for beta testers – the second round of testing is about to begin, so if you’re quick, you might still be able to hop in! (Look for the author’s e-mail linked under the words ‘Saintbomber’.)
Briefly speaking, it’s a RPG made in RPGmaker, in the vein of the early Final Fantasies, but noteworthy in that there is pretty much no combat – it’s driven entirely by walking and talking. That aside, it conveys the look and feel of classic console RPGs quite perfectly – combined with the prominent yuri content and some outstanding writing, I believe it’s something a yuri and games fan should look forward to. And expect a real review once I can devote a sufficient amount of time to it!
