Chiyuki lands a dream job working on a film but encounters more drama than she bargained for!

Lover Pretend is available now for Nintendo Switch™! In this hilarious rom-com otome game, Chiyuki takes a job as the assistant screenwriter on a film production in order to find answers about her mysterious father, but instead finds herself the centre of attention.

Purchase the Lover Pretend Online Exclusive Edition from the Aksys UK Online Store now, which includes a set of character cards and a soundtrack CD!


 

About the game:

Chiyuki lives alone, spending her days busily studying at college and her nights working late as a part-timer. She has two dreams: one is to become a screenwriter, the same aspiration her mother had before she died, and the other is to find the father she’s never known. The only clue Chiyuki has is that her mother wrote a script for a popular drama series before she was born. “Maybe someone involved in the film knows something…?”

The same director is filming a new series with sons of the men who worked on that previous one as part the crew. Chiyuki joins the production as an assistant screenwriter and searches for answers as she tries her best at her new job. But as fate would have it, she is pursued by the sons involved in the production. Chiyuki tells herself she’s simply pretending and that she’s not really in love, or is she? Will Chiyuki, who knows nothing of real love, be able to write her own story?

Virche Evermore -Error: Salvation-

In Western Europe is a small island called Alpeciel where the black flowers of misfortune grow. This island is is ruled by a royal family – the Revpowells. However, this is not a regular island. The people of this island are born with a "death curse" and are doomed to die before age 23. Before they turn 23, their lungs cease to function and they die a slow death.

In order to combat the rapidly shrinking population, the powers that be managed to create a super technological advancement that allowed them to clone someone’s memory and body in the process called “ReLife”. 

The system that was created—a “memory download” - is where the body that dies by age 23 is discarded, and only the memories live on. Those who live forever through memory download are known as “relivers” and continue to resist their short lives.

Meanwhile, there was a girl known as the “God of Death,” as everyone she comes in contact with dies faster than normal. Just as she is about to end her life in regret, a mysterious man who calls himself the “Watchman of Death” appears before her.

Under the watchman’s guidance, the girl will approach the truth of the “various mysteries of death” that haunts the country, whether she likes it or not… Without knowing that despair is the fate that awaits those possessed by the god of death.

The protagonist decides to work as a Hero, leading a busy life as both a student and champion of justice. But why is it that she has more opportunities to talk to the good-looking guys everyone is gossiping about…? What is their (the girls’ / guys’) secret…? And what is the enemy’s true identity…?
