Haccaworks’ new game

While trying to find a site where I’d be able to buy Queen of Darkness, I came across HaccaWorks* website… and saw that they have a new game coming up, titled Akaya Akashiya Ayakashino. Not quite sure when it’d get released, but it certainly looks pretty… (and will probably be shounen-ai?)

HaccaWorks* previous work was a doujin game called HanaKiSou. It was (arguably) a shounen-ai game, and while I can’t remember much of the storyline, I liked the art and the music was done by Akiko Shikata (who also worked on Ar Tonelico’s OST). I don’t know much about the new game, but I wish Akiko Shikata will do the music again. …if I’m going to slash my wallet and bleed it to death, might as well do it in style right? Game + OST + booklet = suicidal wallet ๐Ÿ˜€ That last item is already released, during an event, I think…?

…I really shouldn’t have a credit card, I think.

Speaking of Queen of Darkness, you can do custom order from HimeyaShop. Price, however, will be a pretty $43 (excluding shipping). Simply put, you pay 2 shipping fees… $43 includes shipping fee from the original shop to Himeya, and you have to add the shipping fee from Himeya to you. It’s probably a last resort alternative, since last time I checked English DLSite still didn’t have Queen of Darkness listed. If you find a better option to purchase Queen of Darkness let me know in the comments.

    Yea it's a quite newish game, so it'd be a while to get it through other means I believe. For me I had to get it through a friend, since she went to Comiket and was able to get me some stuff when she came back and all. :/ Well that's how I usually get my games, since it's cheaper that way >> I have to say 43 dollars is a pretty big price, even though it's a like import. Although I guess when you think about how it's voiced most of the time and the system, is pretty good.

    I liked the story premise, and the characters seem very interesting–not bland or generic. And I like the story; I thought it’s worth the money.And the time that went into the game creation must be enormous ๐Ÿ™‚ it looks like a very well-crafted and well-designed game. It sort of justifies the price, for me… .__.

    Yea~ Well basically if you liked games like Under the Moon, like most people have been saying about it, then you’ll probably like this game too. Although personally I like the heroine a lot more since she’s more well aggressive and hilarious. I have to admit the only thing that peeved me was really sometimes the CGs since at times certain CGs were really inconsistent which was surprising. But they’re in the process of making another game, and I have to admit although I do prefer the art work for Queen of Darkness the next one looks quite interesting.
