Oh No! You missed a Christmas Present: Quick to the Steam Sale!

Hey look, we’ve all been there. It is 3 days after Christmas and you forgot one of your bros (in the gender-neutral sense). So you are scrambling to figure out what to get them. Degica Games and the Steam Winter Sale is here to help you!

If Your Bro Likes Street Fighter, Get Them Koihime Enbu

 

We all have that one friend. The one that watches EVO on stream every year (or goes if he is well off). He follows all the major fighting game tourneys. He talks about charge motion and frame data and plus or minus and you have no idea what he means.

That guy would really like Koihime Enbu! Koihime Enbu is a very fundamentals based fighter. It isn’t about memorizing movelists, it’s all about positioning, knowing your “normals” (non-special moves for the non-fighter fans out there), and knowing your opponent and the matchups.

It is about as pure of a fighting game you can find, and it is excellent at 20% off. And if you buy it right now, you’ll also get the soundtrack for free!

If Your Bro Likes Touhou, Get Them Deathsmiles

So your friend likes Touhou. Whether they are into the cute girls or the danmaku magic, we’ve still got the game for you to get them.

Made by the originators of the bullet hell genre (basically the genre of top-down shooter where there is a TON of bullets on the screen), CAVE, Deathsmiles is a great option for the Touhou fan. It features cute goth girls in a sidescrolling shooter taking down all manner of supernatural opponents with magic and the help of their familiars!

And being a CAVE game, that means really really solid mechanics, learn the enemies and how to get them to give the best drops to get your counter to 1000, then enter a special powered up form to blow your enemies away! Pick up Deathsmiles for your friend at 60% off.

If Your Bro Likes Sim City, Get Them A-Train PC Classic

Is your friend just really into building stuff? He likes creating his own world and watching it grow? Deciding how to make it the best, or well, maybe the worst, city possible.

Then take a look at A-Train PC Classic. One of the mistakes people make when looking at this series is they think that it is just about placing train lines. This isn’t true at all. You are managing all forms of transportation. And all the transport affects the city itself.

You are building the city. It also comes with fantastic scenario play which gives you great non-sandbox modes with defined situations with defined goals. An excellent challenge compared to the normal freeform play. 34% off on Steam today!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
But the Steam Sale is so delightful.
And since we want to stay home all day,
Let Us Play! Let Us Play! Let Us Play!

It’s the Steam Winter Sale! A time for great deals on great games. And since every other part of you is probably freezing, we might as well burn our brain with puzzles and mysteries!

It’s time to think outside the box, with the meta-puzzle game OneShot!

To solve these puzzles, return the sun to the sky and save this world, you’re going to have to do more than think of how to manipulate the pieces inside the game, you’ll have to think of how to manipulate the game itself.

But what you won’t have to do is pay a high price! Pick up OneShot for 40% off today!

Or maybe you are up for a bit more of a traditional mystery.

Then take a look at Scar of the Doll. Your sister has gone missing, so you’ve come to Tokyo to investigate. But the mystery of her disappearance is just one question that will lead to many, many more. The moment you think you’ve figured it out, the next answer will turn the entire game on its head.

The only thing we can figure out is that you would be a fool to pass up on Scar of the Doll for 60% off!

Be sure to check out these deals and more in the Steam Winter Sale!

Why Visual Novel Maker?

So, I’m sure if you have been following our social media at all, you know that Visual Novel Maker is a thing and that it is now out.

Visual Novel Maker isn’t the first Visual Novel Engine, but we do think it is the best. Visual Novel Maker is made to be as easy to use as possible while retaining all the power you could ever need.

Whether you are just making your first visual novel, or you’ve made eighty already, we’re sure that Visual Novel Maker can make your game dev faster and better. But today, I’m going to focus on the two things that make the Engine perfect for newbies.

The core of Visual Novel Maker is the very easy to use drag and drop scene editor. Just drop in the commands you want and go. These commands will let you do just about anything you can imagine a visual novel should do, add people to the scene, have them talk, move the camera around, branching paths, keeping track of how much certain characters like/dislike you… Pretty much if you can dream it, with just a little understanding of eventing logic, you can make it. Prefer to type in your commands? Visual Novel Maker allows you to do that as well.

And if you can’t draw? Visual Novel Maker is the only visual novel engine that comes with built-in art for you to use! Backgrounds, characters, music, sound effects. Included in the purchase of Visual Novel Maker is a high school setting, plus fantasy characters as well. In the future, you’ll be able to pick up even more resources as DLC!

And even if you can make all your own art, these pieces make fantastic placeholders so you can jump in on the dev work right away!

So take a look at Visual Novel Maker on Steam!

Degica Cave Titles on Steep Discount in the Steam Autumn Sale!

The Steam Autumn Sale is here, and I know that the first thing that jumped to your mind is: “What cool Degica Games can I get in this one?”

While there are no Turkeys among our games, it would be a bit difficult to cover ALL of them in one post, so let’s take a look at some of our most popular titles: Cave Shmups!

Cave is the origin of the bullet hell shooter genre, and according to many, are still the kings of the genre!

First up in our Cave extravaganza is Mushihimesama! In this danmaku you play as Reco. Your people have fallen to a mysterious illness, and it is up to you and your friend Kiniro, the Golden Beetle to discover a cure.

Fly through beautiful stages, dodging the intricate bullet patterns Cave is known for, to see if you can reach the God of the Koshu and save your people for 60% off!

Or maybe you want to take a trip back to the series that invented the bullet hell genre with DoDonPachi Resurrection!

The android Next EXY has traveled from the future and is causing havoc. Your orders are to stop her and the other Elemental Daughters. But why are they here? What is their goal? Will your shmup skills be enough to uncover the truth? Find out for 40% off!

And Halloween may have passed, but it is always a good time for the witchy sidescrolling bullet hell Deathsmiles!

Hell itself has invaded the magical land of Gilverado, and it is up to you, taking the roll of one of five “angels” to stop it. One of the most accessible Cave bullet hells, this is a great place to start for any new fan! See if you are destined to be a bullet hell fanatic at 50% off!

You can get these great deals on Cave titles, and many, many more fantastic Degica Games, through November 28th! Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get the latest on Degica sales and releases!

The Degica Halloween Sale is about to be Banished!

As All Hallows Eve comes to an end, the power of spirits and Halloween Sales begins to wane. When the clock strikes midnight 10AM Pacific, on All Saint’s Day (November 1st), our Halloween deals will be banished back to the netherworld!

No more 50% off on the fantastic witch shmup, Deathsmiles, from legendary shmup developer CAVE…

And the Mythos will be put back to sleep, returning again to full price rather than 80% off, and left to terrorize the world another day…

Even the yuri nurses (Note, Nick: Wait a second here. Who marked this as horror? Note, Publishing Team: Some users on Steam. Note, Nick: Well, far be it from me to say Steam users are wrong…) of Nurse Love Addiction will return to their… dorm rooms? Where do yuri nursing students go when they aren’t “haunting” or whatever they do that is horror anyway? Whatever, the 55% off is going away, OK?

It’s also a great time to pick up everything for Castle of Shikigami, including the brand new Evolution DLC with the Castle of Shikigami Evolution Collector’s Edition!

All of the deals disappear tomorrow! So buy today!

(Are we serious? People are frightened by girl nursing students falling in love? I mean, yeah there is a bit of weirdness outside of that, but… OK OK, I’ll let it go!)

CEOtaku Roundup!

Hello, everyone. It was great to be at CEOtaku last weekend!

Jebailey and his crew put on an amazing set of tournaments, and did such an amazing job of taking care of things, that our team on the ground got to focus on just the fun part of talking to the fans, old and new! So once again, a big shout out to the CEOtaku crew!

We had two main goals for the weekend, help make the Koihime Enbu tournament at CEOtaku better with some cool signed prizes, and to show of Senko no Ronde 2, and we feel that both were a big success.

The Koihime tournament was a blast, with an amazing field of competitors, but one rose above the rest. Far, far above the rest.

Garireo, flying in all the way from Japan just wrecked the competition (he also took the BlazBlue tournament as well, in an incredibly dramatic fashion). No one else could compare, and he was the clear CEOtaku Koihime Champion!

Congratulations to everyone who played, and good luck with your practice for next year, I’m sure Garireo will be waiting for you!

We also had a ton of fun showing off Senko no Ronde 2! Tucked in our booth in the front of the ballroom, we got to show it to a ton of people, and everyone who sat down and played had a lot of fun!

Hopefully, all those who enjoyed it will pick it up and join the great online Senko community we are building!

Thanks again to everyone who came by to check it out! CEOtaku was an amazing event, with some moments of absolutely heartstopping excitement, and if you are at all into Anime Fighters, you owe it to yourself to make it to Orlando next year!
