On the outside this looks to be a fun Girls Club (Cute Girls Doing Cute Things) story but as veterans of this Slice of Life subgenre will tell you, the best Girls Club stories are ones where there is more to the story than watching cute girls doing whatever they feel like doing. The question is whether the hidden layers of this story are enough to warrant everyone’s attention. Let us find out as we take a look at Chuusotsu! 1st Graduation: Time After Time developed by Studio Beast and published by Fruitbat Factory.
WARNING! Game contains some ecchi CGs/moments, dirty language and subject matter not suitable for people under the age of 13 (or maybe 17). If this were an anime it would be categorized as a PG-13 series. Viewer discretion is advised.

We’re very excited to reveal a new game acquisition: SeaBed, Paleontology’s highly anticipated psychological yuri visual novel is getting an English language release by us!
SeaBed was released in Japan in 2016 and quickly drew the attention of visual novel enthusiasts in both Japan and abroad.
Text-wise, SeaBed is one of our largest translation projects, in addition to being known for its unique, high level writing style. We expect translation to take longer than usual, since we want to bring it out in the highest quality possible to meet the fans’ expectations. The English PC version is currently expected to release in late 2017.
Who is SeaBed for? Well, if you like yuri games, or just like a really well written story regardless of genre, this is a game you shouldn’t miss. SeaBed’s story is deeply psychological and beggars description, but here’s the official synopsis:
SeaBed is a critically acclaimed yuri-themed mystery visual novel told through the perspectives of three separate characters: Mizuno Sachiko, a designer plagued by hallucinations of her past lover; Narasaki Hibiki, Sachiko’s friend and a psychiatrist researching the workings of human memories; and Takako, Sachiko’s former lover who has been rapidly forgetting her past, including how or why the two women drifted apart despite being together since childhood.
All three live in different worlds, but seek the same goal. To separate truth from illusion. To make sense of their own lives.
The Steam version of SeaBed is being updated to natively support 1440×1080 resolution. It will also include Steam achievements, Cloud support and Steam Trading Cards.
You can see a full set of high resolution screenshots on SeaBed’s homepage and Steam page. The game is available for pre-order for the price of $19.99 from the Fruitbat Factory store with a -25% pre-order discount.
Developer of original Japanese version (Twitter, Homepage)
Paleontology is an independent Japanese game circle creating yuri-themed games. SeaBed is their first game release. It was developed based on the characters of a 4-koma manga series created by their illustrator, hide38.
We have even more exciting announcements coming out, so stay tuned!
We just recently made an internal summary of 2016 player stats in 100% Orange Juice, and I figured it’d be fun to do a breakdown of some popularity stats for the year.
It’s a long post, so prepare to scroll down!
Before writing this post, I also made some polls on Twitter for some of the categories, to see if people can guess which character was most popular. The community answers will be included where relevant.
Starting with the big one:
We have a lot of cool stuff planned for 2017 too, so stay tuned!
