I decided to start a thread here to post more info about our 2 panels, as well as answer any questions people might have. =) This'll be our third year presenting these panels at various conventions (second year at Fanime), and it's always a fun time.
Anyway, here are the general panel descriptions:Romance 101: A Beginners' Guide to Ren'ai Games
Dating sims, visual novels, ren'ai games-- seen these terms before and wondered what they were all about? Here, we will introduce you to the wild world of ren'ai (romantic love) gaming, covering a range of topics including the different types of games, some popular titles, where to find games, and options for non-Japanese speakers. If you’ve ever been curious about ren’ai games, here’s your chance to learn more!Shira Oka: Second Chances
Learn more about Shira Oka: Second Chances, an upcoming ren’ai video game, before its public release. “If you could re-live high school, what would you do differently?” Visit our website, www.shira-oka.com
for more information. (No ren’ai gaming experience necessary!)
Hope to see many of you there!
(Age disclaimer: While we don't show any adult content in these panels, some of the subject matter and humor may be unsuitable for younger audiences... >_>)
