Romance an ancient Egyptian god in the newest bizarre dating sim for mobile

The dating simulator scene is getting weirder and weirder, so it’s hard to be surprised by anything they come up with these days. Humans are already old news and we’re now used to romancing all manner of strange creatures.

Banish your love rivals, fantasize over your crush’s recorder in weird new game app

More than once, I’ve been baffled by characters in Japanese dramas getting excited at the thought of having a kansetsu kisu, or “indirect kiss.” Apparently, the thought of drinking out of the same cup or using the same straw as the object of your affection is akin to kissing them indirectly.

With the release of a new romance simulation mobile game, you too can experience the thrill of a young Japanese schoolboy about to have a kansetsu kisu with the girl of your dreams–but only after you get your hands on the recorder she uses in music class!

Asahi Shimbun’s app featuring moe school-girl broadcasters is a deceptively good study tool

As in any country, a Japanese newspaper’s credibility often rests on a very fine political line. If their reporting leans even a little left or right, they run the risk of being called a stack of toilet paper scribbled on by talentless hacks by half the population. It’s a precarious position, and one in which releasing an app wherein you dress up school girls as a reward for current event awareness only seems to provide fuel for your detractors.

And yet on October 14 one of Japan’s leading newspapers, Asahi Shimbun, released just such an app called Kikasete Tensei Jingo. It features several moe girls reading from selected editions of the paper’s long-running Tensei Jingo editorial column. However, as pointless as it may appear on the surface there is some heavy language practice potential buried in there.

Train and transform your hero into a prime beefcake in otome romance game Muscle Paradise

Do you even lift? ‘Cos these macho guys certainly do! While the heroes of otome games, story-based romance games aimed at women, tend to err on the feminine side, the hunks in this mobile game cater specifically to women (or men!) who like their guys beefy. And when I see beefy, I mean ox-on-steroids beefy.

“100 Neko” recreates all the fun of filling an alley with scores of cat butts on your iPhone

Do you like cats? Do you like video games? Do you believe we all exist in a infinite number of dimensions simultaneously and our consciousness can shift between these coexisting realities depending on the choices we make?

If so, I think I know a game you might like. It’s a fun little time waster called 100 Neko by PDC Okinawa, in which the goal is to lure adorable little cats onto your screen with treats and one of those furry wand things. It’s also quite charming.

Let’s see how it works, shall we?

Pokémon to Oldiemon! New joke app features beloved characters with paunches and wrinkles

Pokémon as a franchise has been chugging along for quite a while now, and it has a fan base that’s aged right along with it. This means that you’re more likely to find grown-up Pokémon fans than you are, say, Yokai Watch fans, which has more of a kid-dominated fan base. There’s even a Pokémon magazine that’s just for adults now.

So maybe it makes sense that Pokémon fans who are starting to get a little creaky in the joints might be interested in this new joke game application which features middle-aged Pokémon, aka Ojimon! (Ojisan meaning uncle or middle-aged man.)

Come and check out wrinkly Pikachu, greying Charmander, and the rest of the gang!
