Of course, it was a store in Japan, but nevertheless, this is the problem.

NTT Solmare Corp’s games also heavily push users to spend money in order to glamorize their avatar with digital outfits.
There’s nothing truly significant about most of the dating sim apps, either.
Even a pigeon dating sim that actually “constantly sold out…
wherever it became available for purchase” in CD-ROM form. Lone Deviant Art creators, like Pacthesis, can singlehandedly create their own series of flash games, or teams can come together and get voice-acted pieces like SEDUCE ME THE OTOME on Steam.

The genre is incredibly popular since it markets a fantasy that most people won’t experience in real life.All of Pacthesis’ games are free to play on Deviant Art or Newgrounds, and SEDUCE ME is available for free on Steam.The downside is that there is a limit to what indie artists and game developers can do in terms of game design and quality.It is quite literally the motherland of otome games.However, I also saw that most of the games Stellaworth had to offer were for the Play Station consoles and only available in Japanese.There aren’t that many English-translated Japanese-made dating sims.
