>Earlier in the year, Hiroshi “Bamboo” Takeuchi, the president of visual novel developer Overdrive, said that he was encouraged by the sales of Go! Go! Nippon!, the studio’s first visual novel aimed at the Western market.

>Go Go Nippon! is a game that puts you in the shoes of a boy visiting Japan for the first time, and being shown around by a pair of twin girls. The game went on to sell 10,000 copies, which is fairly impressive for a visual novel, and Takeuchi said that he would like to create a “version 2” of the game with updated aspects.

>True to his word, Takeuchi appears to be doing just that. Last month, on Twitter he revealed: “I started the development of ‘Go! Go! Nipppon-2014-’.”

Is 10,000 really that impressive?
>>
>>257353476
>Japanese indie visual novel aimed at westerners
Yes, it's insanely niche and better VNs can be easily obtained for free, so 10,000 is great progress.
>>
>>257353476

For something niche, i suppose

>>257353425

That's a comma.

The translation is correct. Japs just say a lot of redundant shit that cannot be directly translated. The third sentence is actually translated as the "didn't you" part.

Where in the heck do you even go to download VNs? i have never found a good site.

-It will still appear on your public profile
-It will still show up in your activity feed when you buy it
-It will still show you as playing it on your friends list
-It does fucking nothing other than create a premade 'hidden' category which you could already do anyway, its only purpose is to move the shitty games you'll never play out of your list of vidya so they're not clogging up your selection of a backlog title to play

whats up with people feeling ashamed to play "weird" games on steam? using steam instead of Origin™ is weird enough.
>>
>>257352689
This is a shitty anime game.
Games like YS and The Legend of Heroes series are not.
Learn the difference; it may save you 10 bucks.
>>
I'm being honest, did anyone take that game seriously other than weeaboos? To me it felt like a movie that MST3K would make fun of.
>>
>>257354961
>whats up with people feeling ashamed to play "weird" games on steam?
Not speaking for others, but I'd feel ashamed for buying something so blatantly catering to the lowest and most pathetic desires and misguided ideas about Japan. It's not about what others think, it's just that one has to have some dignity.
>>
>>257354903
What?
>>
>>257353476
It is. Western steam releases cost Japanese companies nearly nothing.
These are old games that have long stopped selling in Japan and translated into English for less than a grand.
They're seeing a new market in the west where no one would ever buy these before.
>>
Serious question /v/. Are there are any good visual novel type games on steam? This is important
>>
I'll probably never play the game, but the trailer sure has some delicious music in it.

Go! Go! Nippon is apparently endorsed by the Japanese government.

Or something like that.
It was created for the purpose of teaching foreigners about Japan.

You knew this was -truly- a game when their parents allowed a gaijin to their house alone with their daughters.
>>
>>257355559
Far as I know GGN only barely goes into that part of VN.

There's actually multiple extended conversations about the simplest shit in Japan, like Suica cards, conbini, maid cafes and their toilets. It's a little heavy-handed with it, actually.

Steam is a christian distribution site. Death and violence is fine, but you better not have two consenting adults have sex

Also, Midori deserves a route. Fuck Chie.

>>
>>257358607
It's not my fault she got out shined by a fucking unbalanced suicide girl. Even the writers noticed that, and just said fuck it. We are not going to rewrite half of her route to make Chie a decent character and just disappeared Midori until the end of the game.
>>
>>257355327
Steam handles hosting, downloads, maintenance, purchases, updates. price management, sales and some legal shit all for free. Submitting a game to steam only costs 100 dollars the first time a company submits a game, to stop trolls from submitting shit.
Valve will even assist them implementing the steam overlay, steamworks and other stuff. Workshop is free too.
Achievements are free, community site is free, adding updates is free, it is all free.
Valve makes enough money with that 30% per sale to make up for all the other costs.
For reference, it is estimated that publishers lose about 70% of the cost of a game through traditional methods such a s gamestop releases.
>>
>>257358509
Fuck you.
>>
>>257359028
I have no idea how you could feel anything for that side character. Seriously, I had to look her up she's so forgettable
>>
>>257359469
Well, she had actual development, something Chie got barely until the end of her route. I don't really think Midori is that good of a character, but she was the only reason why the Chie route wasn't a fucking borefest, everything interesting that happens there is because of her.
