Time to Cool Down and Find Some Love with the JAST USA Summer Sale
Summer may not start for another few days but, don’t tell that to JAST USA. The visual novel and eroge publisher has decided that the best way for you to cool down is with some of their games. With prices ranging between $31.99 – $1.25, I’m sure you’ll be able to find something you like. Please keep in mind, however, that these titles are 18+ due to sexual content. So, only check out these deals if that’s something you’re both comfortable with and are legally able to do so in your jurisdiction. That said, here are a few suggestions.
Eiyu*Senki Gold – A New Conquest – $29.99 (25% off)
What’s a summer without a little conquest? Eiyu*Senki Gold has you take the role of a young man who washes up on the shores of a country called Zipang. After assisting Masamune Date, who adopts you as their brother, in unifying Zipang you set out to bring the world under your banner. Along the way, you’ll fight in turn-based army battles, journey across the globe, and meet lots of historical figures. All of which are women. Yes, even Masamune Date. I reviewed this one for Hey Poor Player and it’s a game I eagerly recommend if you want some gameplay mixed with your VNs. Plus, at 25%-off it’s not a bad deal. Also, the original Eiyu*Senki is available for $14.00 (65% off).
Deus Machina Demonbane – $15.00 (50% Off)
Demonbane is one of those titles that you may have heard of. Especially if you’re either a fan of old-school VNs or mecha series. In short, Demonbane has you forming a contract with a young girl named Al-Azif. Who, in turn, is a powerful grimoire. Specifically the Necronomicon. While this grants you the boon of some powerful magic, it also ends up activating the titular Demonbane. Will you be able to keep Arkham City city from the Lovecraftian hordes that are about to be unleashed? Or is the Demonbane just too much to handle?
The Fruit of Grisaia – $16.00 (60% off)
Another eroge classic up there among the ranks of Fate/stay night. The Fruit of Grisaia follows Yuuji Kazami. A young man who enrolls in Mihama Academy. However, Mihama is not your normal school, and Yuuji not your average student. You see, Mihama only has five other students besides him, all girls. However, things are not as they seem. Everyone seems to have a troubled past of some sort. Can Yuuji find some semblance of normal life here? Or will his job as a ‘cleaner’ for the underworld prove to be too much for him to emotionally and psychologically overcome?
sweet pool – $12.50 (50% off)
Not in the mood for a romance with girls? How about a tragic Boys Love horror title from the masters at Nitro+ CHiRAL? sweet pool tells the tale of Youji Sakiyama. Youji has been in the hospital for a year due to health issues. Upon returning to his Catholic school, however, he starts to have some vivid hallucinations. At the same time two other young men, Tetsuo and Zenya, seem to take an interest in him. Get ready for a horrifically beautiful time as you try to solve these mysteries in sweet pool.
Highway Blossoms Remastered – $4.42 (66% off)
