posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Also all-ages version of Chou Dengeki

Software publishing company MangaGamer announced on Friday that it will release three new visual novels: euphoria, The House in Fata Morgana, and eden*. The company will release both adult and all-ages versions of eden* and its previously announced title Chou Dengeki Stryker. The all ages version of Chou Dengeki Stryker will be available on Steam.

euphoria is developed by Japanese adult game developer CLOCKUP (Eroge! ~Sex and Games Makes Sexy Games~). MangaGamer describes the story:

Waking up in a stark white room, with nothing but your clothes and collar around your neck. The door beeps, opens, and you have seconds to decide whether to move on or not.

As you enter the new room, you six other girls--girls you know--and a computerized voice begins to explain the little 'game' you're all about to be forced to play. When one girl refuses to comply, you all reawaken just in time to watch her be murdered before your eyes.

"Withdrawal from the game will result in death," the electronic voice states, coldly, mechanically, with no hint of emotion. Your only choice in order to survive is to choose from the girls presented before you--and violate them. Failure means death. Forfeit means death.

Can you escape this torturous 'game' with your sanity intact? What awaits after this torturous trial?

The game was developed into an adult original video anime in 2011. MangaGamer is releasing the high-definition remaster of the game fully uncensored.

The House in Fata Morgana is a gothic visual novel by Japanese developer Novectacle. The game recounts tales of tragedy spanning centuries, all of which feature a mysterious white-haired girl.

The company also announced a two-part plan to release new visual novel titles by minori (Wind: A Breath of Heart, ef - a fairy tale of the two.). The company will first release the minori's eden* in two editions: eden* and eden* plus mosaic. The original eden* is an all-ages game, but eden* plus mosaic includes adult content.

MangaGamer describes the story:

eden* is a tale set just before the apocalypse, after most of humanity has been evacuated to outer space. One of the few soldiers left on Earth, the expert sniper Ryou is assigned to a remote research facility to guard the most important person on a dying Earth. She is the engineer behind the spaceships that saved humanity, a genetically modified breed of human that possesses incredible intelligence: The supreme felix, Sion.

At this odd research facility, Ryou will encounter a polite, if at times suggestive maid, an outspoken and beautiful partner who -loves- using knives, and a major who he would just as soon kill due to their tragic past. What awaits Ryou in this place?

MangaGamer plans to release eden* on Steam with a goal of selling US$100,000 copies of the game. The profits earned from eden* will go directly into localizing the first chapter minori's Supipara - Alice the Magical Conductor visual novel.

MangaGamer describes the story:

The protagonist, Yukinari Sanada, has returned to his hometown in Kanagawa Prefecture, Kamakura City, for the first time in seven years, and is greeted by his older cousin, Sakura Narumi (complete with maid outfit). He wanted to live in peace, but his life at the academy placed on the coastlands becomes bustling and brilliant while surrounded by the a lineup of members with booming personalities like Hotaru Amano, the sharp tongued, half-Japanese beauty, and Alice Kamishiro, the lazy witch who loves modern-science and mail-orders.

Eventually, our protagonist is coaxed into joining the action committee for the academy's traditional beauty contest by his close friend. He interacts with the heroines participating in this contest who are cute but each have an idiocyncrasy or two. Fun events (with their own difficulties) pop up again and again. Your story with "her" about smiles, peace, passion, and love, all while borrowing the power of a witch, is about to begin!

The project remains unfinished in Japan but MangaGamer will work with minori to use the funds from sales of both eden* and Supipara's first chapter to finish the project. If funding succeeds, the developer will then release the completed game in North America before Japan.
