Mmm, never much been into the bullet hells, will probably pass on this for now, cute graphics aside. Will pick it up on a sale some months in the future, I imagine. But yeah, very exciting to see it on Steam!
I hear at the Cons that lots of people are looking into localization and several have projects underway. Or are making their own original anime/manga games! It's really very exciting. Recettear doing so well on Steam really made it all look financially viable, of course. It makes even some of the lesser Cons lots of fun to go to. Everybody has a garage project! Haven't felt this much energy in the scene since the days everybody was trading VHS tapes!
Personally, in the homebrew/indie genre, I like some of the Hanako Games and Winter Wolves animesque titles. Cute.
Anyway, I expect we'll see many more releases over the next couple of years. It's a great time to be a video game player. Steam sure has been picking up more indie titles recently, which is also good, eh?
Achron just came out -- something I've been looking forward to. Not an anime/manga title. It's a time-travel based RTS.
