Tsundere Idol: My Personal M-Pet

Follow the story of Kota, a mild-mannered student in Japan who is a fan of the up and coming Idol sensation Rui Kurumizaka. Wouldn’t you know it she happens to attend the same university as him and is in one of his classes!

Too shy to approach the cool and popular Rui, Kota is happy just to be in the same classroom as her. Then one day an accident occurs and the contents of Rui’s bag spill out on the floor revealing an S&M magazine! Our hero steps up and claims ownership in order to save the true owner the embarrassment of owning up to possessing such salacious literature. And thus begins an unexpected and unusual affair.

Join Kota and Rui as they explore the world of depravity as Master and Pet~

As many fans are aware adult-themed visual novels are a common genre within Japanese gaming culture. The mission of Cherry Kiss Games is to provide the authentic Japanese Visual Novel experience to the rest of the world. Tsundere Idol: My Personal M-Pet is our second localization project and this time we are going to use Kickstarter to help us fund the translation effort to bring this game to both PC and Android devices.

Good and Bad news – Dev. Blog

We have some good news and some bad news for you today. Let’s start with the bad… As you may have noticed, all of a sudden we went quiet on the Tsundere Idol progress front. Unfortunately, we hit one of the “worst case scenarios” that we had identified for delivery of our Kickstarter project. We had a translator who had volunteered to translate the first scene of Tsundere Idol, that’s what was used for the demo that was posted with our Kickstarter. The plan was for him to complete the remaining translation but sadly he has abandoned the project. We apologize for not passing along this news earlier. We didn’t want to make such a devastating blow to the project public before we could find a solution, and find a solution we did!

This is where the good news comes in folks so don’t worry!

After the original translator confirmed his unwillingness last week to finish the project we reached out to the translator we had worked with on Wild Romance and, with help from our friends in Japan, we have arranged to have him complete the job. He’s someone we trust to deliver on time and with the top quality translation that you deserve. He’s taken this past week to ramp up and has now confirmed that he will be able to complete the full translation by the 30th of April! There will still be some editing and other tasks required after we get the final translation but we’ll be working as hard as we can to get Tsundere Idol in stores as soon as possible after that. We don’t want to set expectations we can’t meet but will announce an official launch date as soon as we’re 110% confident all is back on track.

Our Kickstarter rewards are nearly complete as well! The Concept Art Collection is being reviewed by Norn, the posters have started printing and should be in our office on Monday. The postcard design is being finalized and hopefully those will start getting mailed out from Rui’s HQ in Japan soon too.

Thanks everyone for your continued patience! More updates to come soon! In next week’s dev blog I’ll also shed some more light on our other title in production Master of the Harem Guild.

Inspiration strikes dos veces! – Dev. Blog

Welcome to what could be the most development heavy edition of the Cherry Kiss Dev. Blog! As the Kickstarter continues to gain backers I’ve been finding things I can add or tweak in our games to try to entice more of you to play them, this week I looked into one of our community member’s projects Divine Conception (which you can check out here) and lo they have facial animations on their characters as well as some other neat tricks that were pushing the engine farther than I initially thought possible and of course I was inspired to… “appropriate” some of these features into Wild Romance and Tsundere Idol.

I went about chopping up Rui-chan’s beautiful face to isolate all her expressions so I could build them into live composites that give her the power to blink! (and move her mouth, how lewd.) Hopefully this makes the game more interesting now that the sprite moves in a more meaningful way than bouncing around the screen when she is rendered. This process should also reduce the overall file size since now there doesn’t have to be a dedicated sprite for every emotion for every outfit that Rui wears during the game.

Of course, I couldn’t stop at just Rui! Before repeating this process with Nazuna, Sumire, Aoi and Tsubaki I was shown a nifty little program that I could use to increase the dimensions of sprites with minimal loss to quality which then got me thinking I could upscale the sprites and then remove even more redundant images in the game folder by making a zoom animation that allows close-ups of “certain areas” of the character sprites, which again looks better than just cross-fading to an already zoomed in facial expression or… breast… shot? Then to go even further beyond, I’ve been toying with more animations to have multiple sprites on screen and moving them on and off the screen and dealing with the zooms and zoom outs to make, in my humble opinion, a more sophisticated update to both games!

And If you’ve been following our Twitter we are on the way to releasing Wild Romance: Mofu Mofu Edition in Spanish! I’m hoping to finish these animation implementations, go through a Spelling and Grammar pass that I received from a member of the community, as well as get the Spanish language fully integrated for a big 1.2.0 release sometime in February. (Steam users don’t fret! You do not need to reinstall a new patch!)

That about wraps this week up! expect some kind of progress report next time on how far along the animations are going, until then this has been Cherry Dev hoping y’all have a good weekend~

Tsundere Idol – Support us on Kickstarter

Earlier today our Kickstarter to fund the translation effort of Tsundere Idol: My Personal M-Pet went live! It will run until the end of February so we at Cherry Kiss are going to be grinding hard for the next month promoting this bad boy as much as possible. We’ve tried to assemble the best batch of goodies we possibly can from a collection of concept art from Norn and a poster signed by the original illustrator, Hazuki Ayase, hopefully we can entice you into supporting our effort to bring another title to the west.

A new year begins – Dev. Blog

It started as a dream. A trip to Japan in June and introductions over several cups of sake convinced us it was possible. Getting signatures to an agreement was a challenge well worth the effort. Since then the year has practically flown by. We delivered a complete version of Wild Romance that has been released on PC and Android and we’re pleased with how sales are progressing. Our Twitter following has grown to over 100 members and visits to our website are also steadily increasing. We just launched a Discord for everyone to come and chat. What a year! We at Cherry Kiss want to say thank you for helping us get this far. We’ll continue doing our best in 2018!

We hinted at it before but now finally we can tell you what our next project will be…

We are launching a Kickstarter to fund the translation of Tsundere Idol: My personal M-Pet!

 

We want to get the Kickstarter up ASAP but we have to get final approval for any tiers we want to include. We want to include some cool digital goodies for anyone especially generous and those final details are still being ironed out. Look forward to more information next week!

Tsundere Idol: My Personal M-Pet

First let me thank you all for your suggestions on Twitter, Reddit, and here on our site. Our goal is to translate many of these so we hope to get to all of your suggestions one day.  A special thank you to someone who not only sent us a recommendation but sent us a partial translation of ツンデレアイドルは僕だけのMペット ~いっぱい躾けてご主人様のLOVE精子で孕みたいの♪~ or as we have lovingly renamed it: Tsundere Idol: My Personal M-Pet! This does not mean we have 100% committed to following through with Tsundere Idol but we are in the process of mocking up a demo for it that we would love your feedback on!

We liked the premise of the game where Rui becomes the players pet and takes the plunge into the world of S&M, as it offers more ‘spicy’ scenes than we had in Wild Romance as you and Rui engage in all sorts of depravity from tying her up in a bathroom to filming a porno with her in her idol outfit and more… We’re taking everything we learned from developing Wild Romance and applying it straight from the start so expect a gallery and resolution switcher from day 1!

We are seriously considering crowdfunding our next project. If a complete version of Tsundere Idol is something you want to see then let us know!

The translation game is a tough one and it’s not cheap either… we’re quickly developing our technical skills and are constantly on the lookout for ways we can streamline the development process.  We never want to cut corners though.  For Wild Romance: Mofu Mofu Edition we hired the translator who had done the original Wild Romance to finish the job in order to maintain a consistently high quality of work. Now that we are starting a game fresh we have the opportunity to try new approaches to getting things done.  Crowdfunding is one approach we think can help us to accelerate the process of delivering to you, our fans, some spicy tales to stimulate and arouse your imagination.

Thanks again, from your boys at Cherry Kiss.
