Sekai Project also announced Sumire. This Nekoneko Soft title was released as a 15th anniversary project. It pays homage to their earlier titles such as the Narcissu series.
The story focuses on “Ken-chan”, the protagonist who uses this online handle in a social network known as Galge Gakuen, a place for lovers of galge, games that feature bishoujo/pretty girl characters. While he was more interested in online games and galge in the past, his interest has waned greatly as he got older.
Nevertheless, he still logs in to talk to his net friends, Tae and Pink. While they used to talk only about things like galge, as he gets closer to them, they begin to talk like close friends would but only do so online as it’s considered taboo to inquire about their real selves.
But a chance encounter with another denizen of Galge Gakuen in real life leads to the four of them meeting each other in real life and thus begins their story.
Sumire is a visual novel by Nekoneko Soft and was released as a 15th anniversary project for the company and pays homage to their earlier titles. Famous for their Narcissu series, fans of their work will definitely enjoy this title which celebrates an illustrious run as a game developer.
