I see; guess it wasn't just for the novel 1984 after all.

What, seeing the money that Valve's Steam service makes isn't enough to sway them? What about the anti-piracy measures it contains? And aren't there already some Japanese digital distribution services like the DMM website?

Really, now. How does that explain the rise of Innocent Grey, one of the most prominent (but by no means the only) eroge developers to regularly give its characters bloody and brutal demises? Tastes have definitely changed by now, and that still doesn't explain the removal of h-material (which I'm sure fans would still love to pay for).

So-called "Type B" fans love well-designed characters regardless of their other qualities, and Carnelian's characters are nothing if not well-designed.

Well, no?

Japanese market is very insular, and their management even more so; for last couple of decades Japan was predominantly focused on its own market, which is ruled by a completely different set of rules then the West. This begun to change, very slowly, only recently.

...And why are you bringing up a completely unrelated title and company? People who read Innocent Grey stuff may be cool with whatever gore is inside, but you can't readily apply that to people who read Alternative. Also, did we already mention that Muv-Luv is already niche, even in Japan itself? That makes it more likely to listen to their already-existing fanbase, in order to sell next titles to them.

I suppose "All ages" is a bit of a misnomer. I'm pretty sure the game still has age restrictions, because there are violence and death, it's just that they are not so graphic anymore.

If Total Eclipse is of any indication, Schwarz characters will probably be made...eventually. We already had Schwarz-themed MiGs and Chebrushkas, so they'll do character figures at some point in time. It might still take them a few years.

Because, you know, there's only that many projects that you can do at the same time.

I would have thought that veterans of the 1980s Japanese Bubble Economy would have realised that such economic growth could only have been fuelled in the first place by exports. Domestic consumption will prove to be an ever-shrinking market as the Japanese population declines.

Apparently Innocent Grey is so niche their best-selling game Kara no Shoujo 1 was translated by Mangagamer into English. Besides, I'm sure that every business needs to attract new customers to survive. Muv-Luv may be niche now, but it doesn't have to be. If translated into English I'm sure many western sci-fi fans would like to read it.

I still don't understand why they purged the h-material. Earlier MuvLuv titles had it and apparently sold just fine.

All it needed was Beatrix like a succubus or as Cala Cromwell and it would've been perfect.

Still...Irisdina looking good as always. Nice to see ‚ge giving her the attention she deserves.

A stereotypical devil.

Kinda fitting, given her Christian themes and all.

For increased irony, they should have Beatrix as an angel.
Wouldn't you want those sexy domineering legs with those white garters?

Looks like Katia is an expy from another game called MIX! that Carnelian did. The hairstyle is almost exactly the same. Her name in that is Suwa Ranmaru.

"Suwa Ranmaru" in that series is actually a cross-dressing boy. And you'd think that with all characters Carnelian has drawn over the years, she'd make a few with similar hairstyles entirely by coincidence.
