Back from afar
We are still alive...but late
Description
Release date: Early 2016

Have you ever thought that gaming and learning makes for the perfect couple? Pack your virtual suitcase and join us in Tokyo for your very own Koto Gakuen, a language school full of thing to learn, people to meet and romance to start.

Love Language Japanese Y1 GE is a smart blend between a visual novel/Dating sim and a E-learning experience. Through 90 in-game days learn Japanese every weekday morning and use your free time to roam the map in search of new adventure, new friends and perhaps new love.


In Love Language you will go through a full trimester program at Koto Gakuen, a prestigious language school for foreign students in Tokyo. During these 90 days it will be your choice that will define where and with who you end up. Here are some of the game main features :

- Lessons : Every weekday morning you will enjoy a new Japanese lesson with the lovely Professor Saito. Each lesson will be prepared so it will not be too overwhelming but it will also be enough for you to learn more and more.

- Test and homework : For a reason that we will not disclose yet (spoiler), you will have to undergo a Japanese test every saturday morning. These tests, as well as the possibility to review your lesson at home will be mini games with different content and levels.

- Storyline and events : Through your 90 days in Tokyo, a full, light hearted storyline will unfold before your eyes. You will learn a lot about each character and where you should head in the future.

- Map and Encounters : In Love Language you will not find "routes" that are the usual features in dating sims. We give you the choice, every afternoon and evening, to pick a location and meet with the character of your choice, but beware, some questions will be asked and your answers will define your relationship with each and every character.

- Dates : Behave nicely and learn to know each character and perhaps you will be asked on a date!


Love Language Japanese Y1 GE will not get you to fluency, it obviously takes more than a few hours of gaming to get there. In our experience here in Japan (and as foreigners) we faced the same issues while learning Japanese. There are plenty of doors to unlock to be fluent in one language but the very first one is to get started. This is where Love Language will shine, it is a starting experience, a first step into a new language and ultimately a foundation for further study.



Being first and foremost a Visual Novel/Dating Sim, you will be able to meet, befriend and date some really interesting characters. Each character will have their own story, own behaviours and own secrets that you will have to learn through encounters, dates, events and storyline. We want to be as close as possible to a real life dating sim, so don't expect these girls to be emotionless once you pick one of them.

What are you guys planning to about releasing the game now that steam greenlight is being shut down? I was also wondering if you guys are just planning to release on steam?

We have no copyright issue, this matter has already been discussed in discussions. Head to the annoucements to understand why the project ended up that late :)

@MechaShadowV2 so basically that link is a eroge visual novel game released in 2012. The images are exactly the same as this game. no wonder they had copyright issue because this game stole the art. perhaps if they used it as some beta placeholders...sigh i feel disgusted by this. i was getting ready to support this game too.

I hope there will be an update on the state of the game in the near future. I'd hate to see this one bite the dust.

will this game teach grammar or only really basic things like kana? also will there be kanji learning? this could be huge, there are great communities with people trying to learn japanese, if there were mod tools or things like that the community could make this game a huge hit.
