As it gets even colder outside we keep thinking of more reasons to stay inside this winter. This week brings us a free short visual novel to play in the form of Eternal Hour: Golden Hour by Seventh Heart Studios, plus good news on Sol Press’ Newton and the Apple Tree project and a big update on Frontwing’s Momoiro Closet.
Yuzusoft will also be publish information on their 10th title soon. While various upcoming December titles have already reached gold status as well. Do we need any more of a motive to stay indoors?
As usual, the news has been split between English Visual Novels, Japanese Visual Novels, and Nukige games specifically.
English visual novels
Newton and the Apple Tree Kickstarter 100% funded
Sol Press’ second Kickstarter project is turning out to be a huge success so far. The campaign for the localization of Laplacian’s Newton and the Apple Tree has already been fully funded. And not only that, they’ve already reached enough support for the 1st and 2nd stretch goals.
Sol Press has also partnered up with MiKandi Japan for campaign support. Which definitely seems to have been a right choice. With about 29 days left in the campaign, one would wonder where they can go.
A website for Newton and the Apple Tree is also available here.
Eternal Hour: Golden Hour released on Steam for free
Seventh Heart Studios and Sekai Project have released Eternal Hour: Golden Hour on Steam. This free to play visual novel lets you play through two prequels that explore the origins of Eternal Hour’s storyline. Good for about 3 hours of gameplay.
A free adult version is also available over at Denpasoft (Obviously nsfw).
