Alpha 0.4 update comes with a new unique feature that I have been planning since long ago!
☆ Dakimakura dating
This feature was inspired by the famous Japanese gamer and artist known online under nickname Nii-san (兄さん) and his dakimakura girlfriend Nemu-tan (a hugging pillow with Nemu Asakura from Da Capo series). For many years he used to run (and still does) a blog posting photos and stories about him traveling and visiting cafes, amusement parks, shrines, and many other places, taking his Nemu-tan dakimakura with him everywhere.
You can check Nii-san’s blog here (Japanese language): http://love-nemu.seesaa.net
Now, after starting a new game, you can choose to get a real anime girl, or a dakimakura girlfriend.
Advantages of dakimakura girlfriend:
- she doesn’t require food, so you don’t have to feed her every day (you still can have a dinner with her in your apartment or in cafe and get bonus relationship points);
- she won’t follow you everywhere you go – you can leave her on a bench or just on the ground while you go shopping, and pick later;
Disadvantages of dakimakura girlfriend:
- you’ll have to carry her in hands to transport, since she can’t walk on her own;
- due to being a pillow she won’t show any emotions or kiss you back.
Thus far there is only one pillow case with an anime girl, but I hope to add more later (these require a lot of time to draw). As far as I know, this is the first time dakimakuras are used in a video game as a gameplay element, so it is a completely unique and original feature.
EDIT (Nov 19): it came to my attention after publishing this update that there are at least a few other video games out there with dakimakuras appearing in them, so my statement from above about “first time… used in a video game” is incorrect.
☆ Neko Cafe (WIP)
The cafe is open and now you can visit it with your girlfriend. This is an alternative to cooking food in your apartment. Some interior details in the cafe are still missing and will be added in future updates.
☆ New clothes & accessories
- Thigh-highs (4 colors);
- Daisy hairpins (can be bought in the fashion store, alongside with headphones (3 colors) and android girl ears);
- White cat ears and white cat tail for cosplay (in the gachapon machine near convenience store);
- Red mini-skirt (can be bought in the fashion store, alongside with shorts);
☆ Miscellaneous additions and improvements
- All Halloween decorations from previous update are removed.
- New NPC promoting Shoujo City on Patreon;
- Better collisions for squirrels;
- Optimization of shadows in all scenes (increased FPS);
- New (much better) water with refraction effect in the pool;
- Improved animation for short hair;
- New animation for standing up from crouching pose (during hide and seek mini-game);
☆ Fixed bugs
- Minor clipping issues for hands during kissing scene;
- Issue that was preventing girlfriend from eating served food if she was holding some object;
- A minor error with displaying “Arrested!” message for translated languages.
All translations are updated according to their current status in the game wiki.
when I tried downloading it my antivirus blocked it?
when i tried to turn it off it still wont let me ;-;
Well, I can confirm that this game is not a virus. I’m not sure what else I can say about this, or how I can help you?
This game’s not a virus that’s for sure.
Laika which is tougher for you 2d sprites or 3d models?hmm
It’s mostly a matter of how much time it will take rather than how tough it is. Making a 3D school building takes by far more time than drawing a school with 2D pixel art.
Can you put this game on mobile
It will be released for mobile devices at some point during 2018. Right now you can play 2D version of Shoujo City for mobiles.
So I started playing the game last month and I want to play the new build but I’m still stuck on the Halloween one, is there a way to add the new build to the game or do I have to redownload the game?
Every update comes as a full game, you’ll have to download a zip archive with new version and unpack it on your PC.
Can in future versions to add a more adult underwear and then just now it looks childish.
Yes. There will be a lot of different clothes and underwear in future versions.
When are you going to have this as a app game I want to play this but I don’t have a computer only a device so are you going to but this as a app game?
At some point during 2018.
Please tell me about which version you plan to add a new location
January ~ February 2018. Hopefully.
I can’t find Shoujo City in my files do you know where they usually are.
It depends on what folder you placed it in after downloading. I can’t know that. If you can’t find it, just download again.
hello laika I was having doubts when my girlfriend is in the game when she says I think I have a headache or when she says I just remembered that I have a lot of homework headache could make a hospital and if a girlfriend does not want to go to the doctor We could continue with the appointment and the task only if you went to school or if you did not have an animation where the girlfriend does the homework when I finished it could continue with the appointment and there is an Easter egg there when I’m kissing at school laika does not pay attention and I would like to be able to get into the la pisina school you would do it for the fans
When in real life a girl doesn’t want to go on a date with you, or wants to end a date due to her mood changing, she will never say directly “I don’t want to go to a date with you.” Instead she will say a fake excuse about some urgent business she just remembered, sudden headache, etc.
It works the same way in the game. Headache/homework lines mean you just failed your date, not that your girl actually has to do something, or has any health issues.
I seem to get a bug in the game which makes my girlfriend not follow me. This bug also prevents her from receiving any items I give her. I hope that this gets fixed soon.
Also, I think that you should provide us with an option to customize the girlfriend.
Can you please provide more details and step-by-step instructions on how to trigger that bug? I will need to replicate it in some way to find out why it happens and fix it.
Can be shoujo city 3d in android?
Yes, will be released later this year.
hey laika …. when the 3d game gonna be released in android phones … i need to know now
