Okay so the last Kickstarter I promoted was a last minute thing. This next one on the other hand needs some help getting started. This is Akemari Studios‘ Dragon Date.
Go on dates and hang out, only with dragons! Featuring a basic battle system, gender selection, and lots of cute dragon girls to date!
Dragon Date is a fun little adventure game / dating sim. You play as a mercenary that has just been hired as a “Dragon Caretaker”, however you immediately find the dragons you’ll be taking care of are all cute girls! It’s up to you to keep them safe and happy throughout various conflicts: both internal and external.
The world of Dragon Date is filled with tension. The game is set roughly fifty years after the war between dragons and humans, and there’s still a bit of malice on both sides. On one hand you have the Holy Templar Order, who are sticking true to their dragon slaying agenda despite years of peace, and on the other you have the various dragon clans, not satisfied with their diminished stature. Then you have the five young dragon girls you’ll be taking care of, often swept up in the conflict.
With strength and perseverance, you can lead the girls to victory and maybe eventually, a peaceful life.
Based on the Kickstarter info the game is a turn based RPG/Dating sim where its length depends on both your objective and how many of the girls you’re after. When it comes to “choose your gender” dating sims/visual novels and the like all I and the rest of the Yuri Nation ask for is one thing: That when choosing the female avatar the girls address and interact differently than when picking the guy, meaning make it feel different and not just switching personal pronouns (“he” to “she”). Do that and we’re good. Other than that the game looks very promising and the stretch goals are enticing.
