Highway Blossoms Amber and Marina

A new yuri visual novel has popped up on Steam Greenlight, titled Highway Blossoms. The game is under development by Alienworks and Sekai Project.

According to the description on the Greenlight page, Highway Blossoms is set in the American southwest, with protagonist Amber on a long road trip through the desert. On the way, she meets Marina, and one thing seems to lead to another from there.

The full Greenlight description:

Developed by Alienworks, Highway Blossoms is a short lesbian (or “yuri”) story set in the American Southwest. After an old gold rush miner’s journal is discovered, supposedly detailing where he hid parts of his stash, a nationwide craze begins as would-be prospectors try to solve its clues and strike it rich.

Amber couldn’t care less. Wandering the desert in a recently-inherited motorhome, she mourns the loss of her grandfather – indifferent and unaware to the hunt happening around her. It’s not until she meets Marina, a young hitchhiker lost in New Mexico that the girls get swept up in the rush.

A tribute to music and Americana, Highway Blossoms is a linear visual novel experience. With an emphasis on romance and adventure, the game is sometimes somber and sometimes silly. We hope to write a game that both long-time VN fans and newcomers to the medium can enjoy, as well as a fun contribution to the yuri genre.

And the trailer:

I believe that if there’s one thing we can always have more of, it’s yuri games. Hopefully this one will make it to Greenlight so we can give it a try.
