    I created this thread because I would like to introduce Fruitbat Factory. They have been steadily publishing indie games on Steam since 2012. And recently they started publishing indie games on Nintendo Switch too! When indie developers would like to make their games into the global and Japanese markets on Steam and Nintendo Switch, Fruitbat Factory could be good partners. :)

    * SeaBed (by Paleontology / Fruitbat Factory)
    https://fruitbatfactory.com/seabed/

    [​IMG]

    "SeaBed is a yuri-themed mystery visual novel told through the perspectives of three separate characters: Sachiko, Takako and Narasaki."

    About This Game :

    SeaBed is a critically acclaimed yuri-themed mystery visual novel told through the perspectives of three separate characters: Mizuno Sachiko, a designer plagued by hallucinations of her past lover; Narasaki Hibiki, Sachiko's friend and a psychiatrist researching the workings of human memories; and Takako, Sachiko's former lover who has been rapidly forgetting her past, including how or why the two women drifted apart despite being together since childhood.

    All three live in different worlds, but seek the same goal. To separate truth from illusion. To make sense of their own lives.

    The Steam version of SeaBed has been updated to natively support 1440x1080 resolution.

    Characters:

    [​IMG]
    "At times, I'd wake up at night and hear all the sounds around me as if they were amplified. I'd feel like my head could burst at any second."

    Although she moved to Tokyo straight after graduating university in order to seek employment, Mizuno Sachiko soon quit her job to establish Clover Design with her childhood friend Takako, becoming its young CEO.

    Her main hobby is reading, but only because nothing else manages to interest her. Although Sachiko used to be quite an avid reader during her school years, finding a job means she now only opens a book every once in a while, whenever her schedule allows it.

    After meeting Takako – an inexhaustible source of enthusiasm, as well as a stark contrast to her own personality – during her childhood years, Sachiko’s interests began to shift to whatever the other woman was doing at a given time.

    [​IMG]
    "This is as good a time as any, so let's check it out."

    Endlessly interested in and enthusiastic about the world, Takako gives the impression of a woman perpetually stuck in her childhood.

    She fell in love with Sachiko at first sight back when they first met at the age of five. However, she does not identify as a homosexual, stressing that Sachiko simply happened to be a woman.

    Takako discovers that she suffers from developmental amnesia, a condition that severely impairs her ability to recall many of her memories.

    [​IMG]
    "I just like observing people."

    A psychiatrist at Narasaki Mental Clinic. She was Sachiko's classmate and friend during her elementary school years, but the two drifted apart as they enrolled in different middle schools. After learning that Sachiko has been experiencing hallucinations, she takes it upon herself to treat her.

    She is extremely picky about her brand of coffee, perhaps because the beverage serves as her sole companion during those long hours spent immersed in research.

    Though not religious, she is a strong believer that everything happens for a reason, and all things have their place and order in the grand scheme of the world.

    [Reviews] SeaBed (VN DB)

    “Playing SeaBed was one of my most rewarding experiences this year and I've had a lot of rewarding media experiences this year.” Floating into Bliss

    “In short, SeaBed is a beautiful game. Some pacing issues aside, it's a poignant exploration of love and heartbreak that manages to feel both grounded and ethereal. One thing's for sure: this isn't a game I'll forget in a hurry.” Digitally Downloaded

    “SeaBed’s in no hurry to shuttle you along to a conclusion, because it’s so utterly in love with the world it’s trying to create. There are mysteries afoot not only in the lives of the three protagonists but surrounding the equally well-developed cast that surrounds them.” Honest Gamers

    * Chuusotsu! 1st Graduation : Time After Time
    (by Studio Beast / Fruitbat Factory)

    https://fruitbatfactory.com/chuusotsu/

    [​IMG]

    "Chuusotsu! is a fun, colorful story of three girls brought by their individual circumstances to live under the same roof and being forced to tackle existential questions to win their place in society."

    About This Game :
    Fruitbat Factory is bringing Chuusotsu! to fans all over the world in dual language (English and Japanese text, characters fully voiced in Japanese).

    Story
    Under the P3 law enacted under the Global People's Federation, citizens are ranked according to the Authorization Seals issued by the world government. As spring arrives, the manga lover Marisugawa Arue, set back by a long-lasting illness, finds herself having to live her life as a "chuusotsu" - a person with no education beyond middle school.

    The chuusotsu are not in possession of any Seals, and are considered to be failures at life. As such, their Authorized Power level is only 5 - young Arue's future is already looking mighty bleak.

    [​IMG]

    "How will I be able to accomplish my goals now..."

    In order to break free of her grim situation, and reach her true goal in life, Arue applies for a government relief program where she will... Share a room with other chuusotsu!? Her two roommates are overwhelmingly unique: a taciturn girl in a souvenir jacket and a crazy chuuni girl. And then the three girls are given group challenges to clear.

    What makes a wonderful life? Synchronize your minds and philosophize on this proposition.

    "There's no way incompetents like us can do philosophy..."

    [​IMG]

    Their time is limited, and failure means that they will immediately get kicked out of the apartment! Will Arue manage to successfully complete the philosophical challenges and achieve a happy, steady-going life...!?

    This is a philosophical story of how the three girls considered lame ducks by the society spend their unusual youth in a world where Authorization Seals decide the lives of all people.

    Characters

    [​IMG]

    Marisugawa Arue (Voice: Takeda Eruru)
    The protagonist. A manga lover with delicate health. Arue’s mental fortitude is also on the weak side, and because of those issues, her academic performance was so poor that she has ended up a chuusotsu (a person with no education beyond middle school). However, although she was a shy, fragile girl back in middle school, Arue has now leveled up into a blunt riposte machine. She has signed up for the room sharing program with extraordinary enthusiasm for the sake of getting the strongest job of 'Government Employee.' That's why she gets super passionate toward, and aggressively tackles the challenges she faces, whose failure would get her kicked out of the apartment. Arue’s really crazy about manga. She cannot and will not stop reading it.

    Favorite Drawing Pens: Cobac, Multi-Line
    "You have got to be more serious! Don't you understand that if we get kicked out of here we're going to be just ordinary unemployed 15-year-old girls!?"

    [​IMG]

    Hachisuka Koiro (Voice: Inukai Ao)
    One of Arue's roomates, who made her first contact with her in a love hotel street. Wearing a rabbit-printed jacket as her trademark, she was well known as "Beachside White Rabbit" back in her hometown. Having left home and quitting her role as the strongest gang leader, she has become just another chuusotsu. Although her being taciturn and great at fighting scares people off, on the inside she is actually a good girl who is pure and airheaded. Koiro is an ally of justice, and takes a firm stance against all sorts of immorality. She is starving practically all the time. You can't fight on an empty stomach.

    Favorite Food: Rice (any brand)
    "...Salted rice tastes good, you know?"

    [​IMG]

    Fujisaki Arara (Voice: Ohyama Chiroru)
    A crazy little girl who is embarrassing to be around. Ever since her childhood, all Arara has been doing is yelling out that she will defeat what she calls "The Ruler of the World," which steadily led her up the stairs to becoming a chuusotsu. She is the kind of girl who talks to a stuffed animal tied up to her arm. Arara only learns the things that interest her, and often does not know about commonplace things. She's also a picky eater and hence, as you can see, is flat as a board.

    Favorite Celebrity: J. Inagawa
    "That steel tower is the source of the Poison Pulse, Arara detects."

    [​IMG]

    Kokoro (Voice: Amakawa Milk)
    The neighbor. She is a poker-faced little girl. Kokoro looks and acts childish, but is always alone. Whether it's because of her doggy hoodie or not, Kokoro's sense of smell is quite sharp. She starts her sentences with "completely" and ends them with interrogatives. Her treasure is a tiny glass ball. She is a canned coffee lover.

    Favorite Canned Coffee: Boos
    "I completely want to do something for you in return, okay?"

    [​IMG]

    Holo (Voice: Inuoka Yamato)
    A hologram interface developed by QUOLIC Co., Ltd. You can summon her from the mysterious machine known as "Soul Dispenser." She thinks and acts just like an air-headed large-busted blonde straight out of an American stereotype. Despite being an autonomous AI, she is not autonomous in the slightest. Her job is to be the adviser to the three girls.

    Favorite Car: Bummer H2
    "Check and promise! Holo is here!"

    [Kickstarter] Seven Days (by LIFE0 / Fruitbat Factory)

    [​IMG]
    Let's play an Occult Mystery visual novel where all the heroines are dead!


    Seven Days With You: the Most Precious Memory in Our Lives (aka Seven Days) by LIFE0 is our biggest visual novel release yet. With top industry voice actors and art by the highly popular artist Miko who's illustrating a game for the first time ever, Seven Days has been well received in Japan.

    [​IMG]

    We are now happy to announce that Fruitbat Factory is releasing a dual language (English and Japanese) version of Seven Days this year - and we'd like to make an awesome physical Collector's Edition version of it (in no less than two different versions!) You can help us make that reality in return for limited edition goods, and maybe even fund additional content!

    About This Game

    [​IMG]

    Seven Days is a passion project by LIFE0, who funded the visual novel's production in Japan via a crowdfunding campaign. With top industry voice actors and the popular artist Miko in charge of the art, the campaign was highly successful and the game proceeded to a retail release in the biggest stores in Japan.

    At Fruitbat Factory, we co-funded the production and co-published the game, and are now looking forward to bringing it to all English-speaking audiences as well.

    The game's translated by Conjueror (SeaBed, Tokyo Babel, Himawari) and the translation is already finished. It is currently being edited by Tyabann (Higurashi, MYTH, Evenicle). Our estimated release is December 2018.

    Seven Days will feature beautiful Full-HD (1920x1080) graphics and English and Japanese text options with Japanese voice acting.
