“Oppaidius Summer Trouble!” Sees the Light with Kickstarter Stretch Goals [NSFW]

 

Visual novels are going retro — and NSFW — in the Kickstarted project Oppaidius Summer Trouble! The game is being created by Italian artist and developer Vittorio Giorgi, and you can probably guess from the title what the main points of interest will be.

 

The ecchi (not hentai, but still not something to take home to Mom) game has already breezed past its Kickstarter goal within a week of starting, and is on its way to its stretch goals. Most recently, backers helped fund a new scene, written especially for the stretch goals. Up next is an 8-bit “panic button.” At 3,500 euros, Giorgi will add a function allowing you to hop over to an oppai-free minigame… you know, in case someone happens to walk in at exactly the wrong time.

 

Future stretch goals include art books, a guest track from Secret of Mana composer Hiroki Kikuta, and a few secrets yet to be revealed.

 

 

In the game, you play as a shut-in who would much prefer to stay inside and play games. But one summer, he’s forced outside to meet Seraphina, the girl of his dreams and his new next door neighbor. The game blends new art with a 90s pixelated style that will be all too familiar to players of vintage VNs and dating sims.

 

The soundtrack currently includes tracks from Japanese musicians Norihiko Hibino (previously of Metal Gear fame, now working on Prescription for Sleep), Masahi Kageyama (Gimmick!), and Tsuyoshi Kaneko (Astro Boy: Omega Factor). The game will also feature over 100 hand-drawn animated frames.
