PICK­ING UP STEAM

Spot­light­ing Play­ism’s wave of Ja­panese Green­light suc­cesses

Tsumu­gari at Zenith Blue says he thinks Green­light users were drawn to Mit­su­rugi Ka­mui Hikae’s straight­for­ward game­play and anime-in­flu­enced char­ac­ter de­signs. “It turns out that a game that fea­tures young girls bat­tling with weapons is some­thing that gamers from all around the world en­joy play­ing,” he says. Mean­while, EF-12’ s cus­tomis­able fight­ing game en­gine, sort of a 3D MU­GEN, seems ideal for Steam Work­shop sup­port, es­pe­cially if Quad Ar­row continues to al­low play­ers to pay what they want for the game, from $1 up­wards. Onoguchi is loath to com­ment, sim­ply ask­ing: “Why are you so crazy about money?”
