Project sought to release otome game on Steam, mobile devices

Digital content company Gloczus and publisher b2g Studio's Kickstarter campaign to localize the otome game Beastmaster and Prince -Flower & Snow- (Mōjūtsukai to Ōji-sama ~Flower & Snow~) into English for release on PC via Steam failed to meet its goal on Saturday. Gloczus and b2g Studio had launched the campaign on February 12 with a goal of US$150,000. A stretch goal of US$160,000 would have brought the game to iOS and Android devices as well

The project had raised US$74,294 before closing on Saturday.

Idea Factory's Otomate brand released Beastmaster and Prince -Flower & Snow- on the PlayStation Vita in Japan in June. Otomate released the first Beastmaster and Prince game on PlayStation 2 in June 2010 and on the PlayStation Portable in June 2011. The company also released the Beastmaster and Prince -Snow Bride- fandisc for PS2 in February 2011 and on the PSP in February 2012.

Gloczus describes the story:

The story begins with our protagonist, Tiana, who dreams of becoming a great Beastmaster. In her travels she encounters four Princes from the neighboring kingdom of Farzan, who were cursed and transformed into animals by a witch. The first Prince, Matheus became a Lion; the second, Alfred, became a Wolf; the third Prince, Lucia, became a Duck; and the fourth, Erik, became a Rabbit. Tiana wants to save the Princes and will do all she can to lift the curse. However, they soon learn that the curse was only the beginning of a conspiracy brewing within the kingdom…

Gloczus previously teamed with Idea Factory International to port the Amnesia: Memories and Hakuōki romance games on iOS and Android devices in English. b2g Studio previously ran a Kickstarter to create an iOS and Android visual novel based on Gloczus' Unlight Facebook browser game, but the project was unsuccessful.
