This week’s header image comes from Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome, which is releasing on September 8th. Note that we do have one release this week, Marina’s Cuckolding Report, but it’s 18+ with few useable art assets for our banner.

Zakabox™ 「Hot take: both of the big two lost Otakon. MG had nothing particularly exciting, and SP countered by just having plain nothing. After Kindred Spirits, I just can’t get hype for a sonohana, even if it turns out to be less sex-focused than their shorter titles as some people have told me. And Rance never interested me. Come to think of it, AX was disappointing too. Was I spoiled the last few years? Are my tastes merely too specific and elitist? Does it matter anyway, when the last VN I read was 私の黒猫? Who knows.
Cold take, smoldering with fury: one thing deccy and tay didn’t pick up was the Shining Song Starnova Kickstarter. I tried the demo on a whim a while ago, and was appalled. Starnova could have been, if not good exactly, a decent enough timewaster. Instead, they decided to write an EVN in weeb.
The KS, which I shall not link to, seems to already be halfway funded or something. Frankly, it depresses me. Please do not support this kind of behaviour.
In brighter news, do try out the demo for Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome. I haven’t gotten around to it yet, but my friends (including Decay) are enjoying it and it seems to have cross-gender appeal.」
