    * About Kagura Games

    Kagura Games is a publishing company specializing in Native English and Chinese translations and localizations of Japanese doujin and indie games.

    We’ve been fan-translating various JRPG and Visual Novels since 2010. After 8 years, we decided to pursue our dreams and bring our passion for doujin games to the West and China; two communities that we’ve felt have been underserved for decades. English and Chinese speakers alike have been clamoring for native translations of doujin games, and at Kagura Games, we intend to bring it to them. Working with our partners, we are proud to release high-quality translations and localizations.

    [Steam] Treasure Hunter Claire (by Acerola / Kagura Games)
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/828070/Treasure_Hunter_Claire/

    [​IMG]

    Treasure Hunter Claire is the story about the titular protagonist, Claire, and her adventure through the fabled land of Alstroemeria. What treasures and riches await Claire as she navigates through Alstroemeria? Find out in this RPG brought to you by Kagura Games and Acerola!

    [​IMG]

    The battle between the Hero and the Demon King has come to an end and the world was at peace. However, with monsters still wrecking havoc, humans teamed up with Demons in an effort to subdue the rampaging monsters. In this peaceful world, there lived a Treasure Hunter, the protagonist, Claire. Hearing a rumor of a treasure that could grant any wish, Claire traveled to the fabled land of Alstroemeria. Word of the treasure being in Alstroemeria had caused it to explode with activity. And Claire was not alone, as many other adventurers also came in search of the treasure. She arrived in the town that acted as a staging ground, and as she walked through it, she came across a mysterious shop and met its owner.

    [​IMG]

    She introduced herself as Milith, and said that there was treasure at the shrine in the temple to the north. Claire didn’t fully trust her, but with no other leads, she decided to investigate. The temple had an ethereal air about it, and gave off a strange aura. Regardless, Claire finally arrived at the shrine in the back of the temple. She found something that seemed to be treasure and grabbed it, only to be enveloped in a bright light. Before she knew what was happening, Claire found herself face to face with a beautiful woman. She introduced herself as the Goddess that protects the island, and said that Claire had the power of the Hero within her. She said that while everyone was scrambling for treasure, a villain who sought to bring the world to ruin had also begun to search for it.

    [​IMG]

    And so, she wished for Claire to obtain the treasure before the villain. The Goddess said that she believed that blood of the Hero was lying dormant within Claire. While performing a ceremony to awaken it, Claire could feel the Hero’s power swelling within her. It was most certainly the power of the Hero. The Goddess explained that the Hero’s power could be strengthened by gathering life essences. Claire would need to gather essences in order to power up. Despite this, Claire vowed to keep searching for the treasure to obtain her wish. And so began her exciting journey with her friends to obtain treasure!

    Treasure Hunter Claire is the second work published by Kagura Games. Many users have been paying attention to Kagura Games lately because of their excellent English translations. Games of this genre can be enjoyed by the heart rather than the head but with the proper translation, it's even better. You can really see how much they care about the translation on the introduction page of this game. In summary, this game is a beautiful blend of Acerola's amazing artwork and Kagura Games' great translation.

    [​IMG]

    Treasure Hunter Claire is a modern game in a simple 2D RPG environment. Along with this is Acerola's great artwork & gameplay system. Illustrations change over the course of the game and combat is typical turn-based style with some interesting twists.

    [​IMG]

    You start a journey with Claire to find a treasure that will change the world. The mission is to find it before it gets into to the hands of the villain. In order to proceed with this story, the game features guilds and quests. The side quests are especially fun. Interaction with the various NPCs is one of the greatest pleasures of this game. In addition, this game has a costume function. Players will have fun with the challenges to unlock these outfits.

    [​IMG]

    In conclusion, this game ranks highly among games of this genre that have released recently. If you're curious you should definitely give it a shot. You will love it! As you may know, recent changes in Steam policy have helped indie developers working in the shade to be come out into the sunshine. These good changes will be the soil in which we will continue to support and enjoy these games in the future.

    [Steam] President Yukino (Acerola / Kagura Games)
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/887530/President_Yukino/

    [​IMG]

    "President Yukino is a Slice of Life RPG brought to you in Native English and Chinese by Kagura Games and Acerola. Follow Yukino on her quest to go to the same graduate school as her boyfriend. Find out what mischief and shenanigans awaits her as she tries to power through part time jobs and exams!"

    [​IMG]

    Born into a normal family and living a normal life is our protagonist, Yukino. She's a scatterbrained klutz who frequently suffers from bad luck.

    She is currently staying with her uncle, Yoichi. They live in the city, where she is working hard on her studies. As a result, she regularly goes to the library to study and read. While she was studying one day, she locked eyes with a young man who went to her school. Being shy, Yukino immediately averted her gaze until the young man spoke to her.

    [​IMG]

    "Do you like that book?"

    The young man's name was Souji. He was a charming young man who was working hard to get admitted to graduate school. He said he was preparing to take famously difficult exams in the hopes of becoming a doctor in the near future. Yukino was moved by his admirable goal and decided to support him. Afterwards, the two found that it was quite easy to talk to one another. They spent their days growing closer while going to the library together to study and read. While there one day, Souji confessed to her. Yukino thought highly of him, so she happily accepted his confession. Souji was an upbeat and friendly person. But he was inexperienced with women, and so didn't get intimate with Yukino. Instead they enjoyed a platonic romance. And then, Yukino made her decision.

    [​IMG]

    "For Souji's sake, I'll try to get into the same graduate school!"

    However, she was still under the care of her uncle. And he wouldn't agree to pay the hefty admission fees. Wanting to pay the admission fee so she could get her foot in the door, she decided to take a part-time job. Find out what happens to Yukino in this Slice of Life RPG brought to you in native English!

    I hope that the works of the RPG Maker Series will be released on the mobile as well as on Steam. Most of these games on iOS are made by Kemco, but on Android and Steam, besides Kemco, the release of these kinds of games is becoming more common. Most of these genre games are created by indie(doujin) developers. Among those games, there are plenty of fun and enjoyable games. If these games satisfy players' wishes with good story, they can be nice enough games. I am pleased that Kagura Games has been working as a publisher to support games made by talented indie developers to make their games more widely known. :)
