The Ghosts of Shoujo City

      46 Comments on The Ghosts of Shoujo City

A new game from Shoujo City series is in development. While it is not a dating sim, it shares many common elements with the two previous games (original 2D Shoujo City and Shoujo City 3D) and happens in the same continuity.

The working title of the new game is “The ghosts of Shoujo City” (could be changed in the future). It will be a quest/adventure story about a high school student investigating paranormal activity in her school. The game will have much smaller area to explore compared to SC3D (only one school map), but that smaller area is also why it will have much better quality and amount of details for every object.

I know that many people would rather prefer to see this or that content added to SC3D instead of a new game, and that no matter how much content is added, there always will be someone asking to add more. Exactly the same happened when I started working on SC3D instead of endlessly updating the original 2D version. In the end, SC3D turned out to be vastly superior to the original game. I would not want to get stuck forever just making updates for the original 2D game, and, likewise, I would not want to get stuck forever just making content updates for SC3D.

Shoujo City 3D was my first 3D game, and I had to learn modeling, texturing, UV mapping, animation, shaders (and many other things required to make a 3D game) on the go, while making the game itself. Now that my skills have improved, I want to move on to better, higher quality works. The new game is a logical next step in the evolution of the series, moving to the next level of quality, design and gameplay.

There will be a few small updates for Shoujo City 3D, but all the planned major features and content are added already and the game is largely finished, don’t expect any major updates.

If you want to keep track of development progress of the new game (The ghosts of Shoujo City), you can follow/bookmark official Shoujo City Twitter account:

The new game is still in early stages of development, so it’s not known when it will be released (definitely not this year). Target platforms: Windows, MacOS, iOS (only high-end devices), Android (only high-end devices). I am also hoping for release on consoles in the future, but it is unknown at this point how that will work out.

UPDATE (May 2021): information in this article is no longer accurate. “Ghosts of Shoujo City” was cancelled in favor of a new dating/social sim. Working title for that new game is “Anime City” and preliminary release date is beginning of 2023. More details can be found on Twitter.

      The game itself doesn’t even exist as yet, just one character model and a few objects, it’s impossible to predict exact technical requirements of the final game. By the time it’s released everything may change.

      On PC what? This article is about a new separate game (“Ghosts of Shoujo City”), to be released in 1-2 years. Please clarify what you are asking about.

      “Windows 7 when” what? If you expect some coherent response, please write some coherent question and clarify what you are asking about. I don’t understand how your cryptic questions are even related to this article, sorry.

    Hi, I have been playing shoujo city for a long time and I will be delighted to play this new project! I know it’s normal for developers to feel pressured, so take your time and take it easy.
    I am a girl who gave the idea of yellow flowers on the ground, as a hair accessory.
    (Sorry my English, it’s google translator, we don’t really know what it says haha.)

    when it comes out will it work on my Samsung Chromebook? It’s a year old but still has some memory in it. also good luck for the new game I hope you have fun!!

          Unity never officially supported Chromebook. Chrome OS can run Android APKs through emulation. But since both hardware and software on Chromebooks are different, it results in the same issues encountered by any other emulator: some apps work fine, some apps don’t work at all, and some apps have various bugs and glitches.
