< report >I am astonished as well.
On the other hand, I am not. Their Kiss series is a steaming pile of shit that did not even attract moe buta that much and their Baldr series had been criticized as being bad by their own fans since a while now. Been a long time since they reached rock bottom and instead of improving, they doubled down on their shitty direction and now they are dead.

Still sad.

< report >I was asking about Entergram because that's the actual corporate entity, and I was wondering if they were closing the whole company. But it seems they are only pulling out (heh) of the eroge industry.Last modified on 2022-11-22 at 22:52

< report >I checked out their other imprints and the majority has only one or two VN attached. At this point, only Nexton I am astonished they are still alive can top them at the number of failed attempts. XD

Shoot. I noticed I read Keiken Zero na Classmate π for nothing but I guess I was lucky the game turned out to be the most terrible romantic VN I ever read that tot' put me off from reading the sequel featuring the pseudo tomboy delinquent.

< report >That is the opposite of what it implied, but whatever. Go ahead and unhide your list and let's see what amazing romantic VNs you've read.

< report >Copium on the "read" part, since you actually meant hooked with an external program that read it for you?
