Four Japanese Indie Games Looking To Be Greenlit

by Rainier on May 29, 2014 @ 4:11 a.m. PDT

The Japanese indie gaming scene continues to thrive and reach increasing numbers of overseas gamers with Nyu Media bringing four new titles to Steam Greenlight.

Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm

Following last year's successful IndieGogo campaign (and subsequent run-in with PayPal), this outstanding doujin 2D fighting game debuts on Steam Greenlight!

On Dec 25th 1925, a Japanese nationalist revolutionary group staged a coup d’etat. The revolutionaries acted swiftly, suppressing the prime minister, police, major corporations, and newspapers. Struggling to react, the old government faction sent the order to a secret information organization ‘Igasei’ to initiate an assassination program called ‘Yatagarasu’ and eliminate the leaders of the coup d’etat.

Features 11 playable characters, solid gameplay, dynamic commentary by tournament commentators Jchensor, Kokujin, UltraDavid, Maximilian, GGPO-based online match play, and much more!

Brought to you by 3 former SNK / King of Fighters developers and an ensemble cast of creative talent including art by KOTANI:Tomoyuki (Mushihimesama) & Yasuda Suzuhito (Shin Megami Tensei), voice acting by Kaji Yuki (Attack on Titan) Uchida Maaya (IDOLM@STER), and soundtrack by Raito (Melty Blood, Under Night In-birth)!

Developed by PDW:HOTAPEN, Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm is planned for a summer 2014 release and will be available for $14.99

Sacred Tears TRUE

A doujin RPG that blends the best of the JRPG genre with innovative and fun game elements, high quality art and music, plus outstanding replay value in one honest-to-goodness gem of a game and a must-have for any JRPG fan!

Sacred Tears TRUE features fresh and unique gameplay features such as a deceptively simple but deep card battle system, redistributable skill points, a multi-way system and more.

Graphics by Takashi KONNO (Shichinin no Bukiya) and music by Hiroyuki Ojima (Accel World, When They Cry anime) and Shimotsuki Haruka (Atelier Iris, Ace Attorney Orchestral Performance)
