LATEST JAPANESE DATING-SIM GAME AVAILABLE - "THE SAGARA FAMILY"
San Diego, CA, Thursday, December 2, 2004 - PCR Distributing/JAST USA, the largest distributor of Japanese dating-sim games for adults, announced the immediate availability of The Sagara Family, an interactive anime-style game for adults ported to English by G-Collections. Featuring a bizarre interactive story in which you find yourself surrounded by the beautiful members of the all-female Sagaras, this new dating-sim game appeals to mature fans of Japan's famous "hentai" erotic art style.
The Sagara Family is an interactive PC game in which you interact with pretty anime girls as you move through the game story, making choices that affect the game outcome. When your father suggests that you live with a family while attending university in Tokyo, you didn't really have an opinion one way or the other, until you found out that the Sagara Family is comprised of nothing but women: four beautiful daughters and their sexy widowed mother! Not only is everyone in the house a beautiful female, they're not used to having men around, so they don't know how to act around one. This will no doubt cause any number of interesting situations to pop up.
Ever since the first computers with color displays appeared in the early 1980s, Japan has had a strong tradition of creating PC games for adults. Games often explore various fetishes, such as sexy maids who serve the player's every wish, harems of beautiful anime girls, or girls in unlikely costumes. These interactive games feature multiple endings with each character, allowing the player to play again and again.
The Sagara Family is translated into English, and the game graphics are 100% uncensored (the original Japan release has mosaics over the game graphics, in accordance with Japanese law). The game makes use of Virtual-Mate, an on-line registration system that requires an Internet connection when launched. Because of the Virtual-Mate system, which has reduced software piracy, the game has been released at the new lower price of $39.95 (other have been released at $49.95 list).
PCR Distributing has been distributing English-language hentai games since 1998 and is the primary company behind the growth of these games in the U.S. G-Collections is a popular licensor of Japanese dating-sim games since 2001.
