A certain A-san’s memoirs as an Eroge creator #26

The interview proceeded.
The two man other than D-shi barely talked.
All what the thin man does is to writing notes on his foldable memo.
While all what the old man does is to nod at D-shi’s words.

— This is almost like a one on one with D-shi.

A-san smiled in his heart.

“We at BackBone soft, we just launched our first game, we’re a new maker.
Well, it is kind of hard to make an evaluation when you have only one game.
We plan to release one game after another and grow this company.
With this in mind, We’re looking for some new insipiration, in the form of new talent.”

It was felt during the phone call as well, this D-shi did have some carisma.
Constrast that with B-shi…

D-shi asked the thin director next to him,
“E, the one we released, how many did it go?”
The man named E, with slight hisitation replied:
“4000…”

On the fly, the old man (F-shi) sitting on the opposite side whispered to D-shi:
“Well, well, D-shi. That might be an interesting point to bring up but… that’s not really what A-san…”
“Oh yea. But, if A-san is to join us, we will have to talk about those details anyways no?”
D-shi, talking like an kid, exchanged words with F-shi.

By 4000, they mean the units of the game they sold…?
Only four thounds…. and this is a situation where they would want to make themselves look good…
They are only selling this much? Though A-san who did not know much about the industry’s information.

“Nahaha, well ok.
A-san, did you play our game?”

He had expected this. To prepare for this question, A-san did buy the game and tried to play it, he was relieved he did that.

“Yes, I did play it”
“Which girl did you like?”
“Ha? Which heroine? Yeah. That small girl I guess…”

You can say he went thought the game, or rather, not only did he not get a full complete, but he didn’t even clear a single route.
To be honest, he didn’t even remember the names of all heroines
But, if its a moe-game, there is usually always character who takes the loli role.

“You mean Aoi-tan? eh? Might it be that A-san is a lolicon?
he–. You’re that type…”

Like that, D-shi went on to make his own conclusion.
E-san and F-san, looked at D-san dumbfolded.
Those 3 of them. They looks almost if as they don’t usually get along very well.

After that, D-shi started talking about the game plan and novel which A-san had sent.After that, D-shi started talking about the game plan and novel which A-san had sent.According to D-shi, the novels, especially the moe-scenario “Sunagimo” was not bad.But the rape novel was no good. It was not at pro level.A-san who was confident in rape-type, had to doubt at the words reaching his ears.
“But I do think you did a good job on both of them. The writing is still a bit immature through.If he gets more experience, he will able to do it I think… right?”D-shi asked to E-shi sitted next to him.E-shi just forced a smile on his face.
–That forced smile, what does that mean?
Those were mostly strict feedback but,Compared to B-shi’s time, where they did not even mention his works, being able to hear other people’s opinios was already very satisfying.
“If you were to join us, what game would A-san like to make?”that came from F-shi.
A-san, thought about it. D-shi’s company’s direction was completely different from his own.In this situation, would it best to straighforwrdly say that he wants to make a rape-type…? A-san thought about it.

“Moe and rape, I want to make them one and pioneer a new genre”
And, a hybrid answer like that was replied.
In response to that, D-san:
“That is, what exactly?”

“Eh? Ehh….”

He could not asnwer.
After all, to come up with it on the moment, was not something that could be done.
In his heart, he was like “shit.” it was too late to even regret.
D-shi, without expecting an answer from A-san said:
“You know what, we…”
Started to talk about his own company again.

According to what D-shi says, BackBone soft has a “Moe” direction.
In those regards, they want to use A-san’s “Sunagimo” as the concept and produce a game base on it.
Of course, if the company gets large enough, they may able to spin off a new brand to pursue a different direction, but for now they are going for one moe-game only.

–That makes sense…

A-san nodded.
It was different from what A-san wanted to do but. D-san had his own vision and he made it very clear.

As if being supressed by D-shi’s strong words, in the back of A-san’s mind, that “moe” phrase remained inscribed inside him.
