The new game I have been working on for over a year already – Anime City – is coming to Steam in 2024. You can add it to your Steam wishlist now:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/2215410/Anime_City/

The game is built on the same core ideas as Shoujo City 2D and Shoujo City 3D, and is focused on high school life and building relationships with one of dateable characters you can meet throughout gameplay. But it’s neither a remake nor a sequel to the two previous games: all the assets and gameplay mechanics are being designed from a scratch. Please check the linked Steam page for more details.

EDIT: release is delayed from 2023 to 2024.
