5pb. Head Wants to Make Erotic Chaos;Head, Chaos;Child Game
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
5pb./MAGES. head Chiyomaru Shikura (Steins;Gate) tweeted on June 10 that he would like to make an erotic game project based on the Chaos;HEAd and Chaos;Child games. The potential project would be for adults age 18 and older.
5pb. has not announced plans for such a game, and Shikura's comment does not indicate that actual project planning is underway. In his tweet, Shikura called the concept a "crazy idea."
Shikura provided original plans for both the Chaos;HEAd and Chaos;Child games, the first and fourth main titles in 5pb.'s science-adventure series. The series does not include any adult erotic games.
Jumping into the erotic games industry could be a challenge for Shikura. Kei Mimasu, founder and CEO of the adult visual novel developer AKABEiSOFT2 (Boku no Hitori Sensō, G Senjō no Maō), shared a sobering image of the industry in March. He noted the dropout rates for various positions based on his experience: "Directors: about 95%, scenario writers: about 75%."
Shikura jumped into another new field in 2014 with the debut of his first light novel series Occultic;Nine. A television anime adaptation of the "paranormal science" story has been green-lit for this year.
The composer and writer is also helming MAGES' "B-PROJECT" with T.M. Revolution (Soul Eater, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed theme songs). The new fictional male idol project is inspiring the B-Project: Kodō Ambitious television anime series, which will premiere on July 6.
