Used japanese dating sim games

has been dominating the mobile dating sim scene for years in Japan, Singapore, and now more recently the U. In fact this past September, Voltage’s romance sims made up almost half of Apple’s twenty top grossing i Phone entertainment apps in Singapore.

And since establishing their San Francisco branch back in 2012, they’re slowly but surely climbing up the charts here too.

Meanwhile, ‘Challenge’ refers to all the challenges one faces in life.” But while you spend a little time building relationships with co-workers and/or friends in these games, the heart of Voltage stories is—or course—fulfilling female fantasies with everything from beefcakes to artsty types.

At the Tokyo Game Show this past year, Voltage’s booth was the closest real-life approximation to a manga fangirl’s wet dream the world’s probably ever seen.

Though she also admitted that “at the same time, many Western audiences think that Japanese anime looks childish and prefer more realistic illustrations,” which explains the clear visual distinction between Voltage’s exclusively U. But in the end, while it may be interesting to consider cultural differences, both the survey and the feedback from Voltage employees reflected my original sentiment: romance is romance, regardless of culture.

There were overwhelmingly more similarities than differences in how American and Japanese women felt about romantic ideals.

After releasing both localized versions of their Japanese apps, as well as some U. originals, Voltage become the 6th highest-grossing app developers on Google Play (though that ranking is from a category separate to other games.) Voltage’s target audience is unique in the sense that, unlike other dating sim apps, they focus on casual users rather than hardcore fans of the genre.

Really, their target audience is just any woman who owns a phone and enjoys romance.

And their reactions were completely emblematic of the experience Voltage hopes to provide for their 26 millions users, with bright eyed women grinning from ear to ear, swooning, or just covering their mouths with scandalized delight.

“Many users in conventional relationships worldwide look to romance apps to allow them to experience, in a virtual space separate from reality, the thrill and excitement of slightly embarrassing lines and situations their real-life husbands and partners may not provide them with,” reads Voltage’s press release on the Game Show booth.

You won't be selecting every dialogue choice during your character's involvement with the game’s world, but you will be occasionally prompted to guide your hero or heroine along different paths, and depending on your prior actions these could result in good or ill.
