“A Magical High School Girl” and “Japanese School Life” Game Demos are now Available on Steam

header

Sekai Project has put two new game demos up onto Steam today: A Magical High School Girl, developed by illuCalab, and Japanese School Life, developed by code:jp!

A Magical High School Girl is a casual, indie, adventure RPG where you play as a high school girl who is lost in a magical world on her way home. She must survive attacks from strange monsters by using her magic and crafting skills. This game comes with Japanese audio along with the choice of either English or Japanese subtitles.

The game is described on Steam below:

“The magic beckons you.” A Magical High School Girl is a magic crafting rogue-like RPG! The only weapon you possess is the magic you conjure from within. You can freely name your magic. The elemental properties and effects are generated automatically with what you typed in.

Develop the magics you obtain, gain magics from magic stones within the dungeon, and combine to develop even stronger magics.

Japanese School Life is a casual visual novel where you play as Brian, a transfer student, as he tries to get used to Japanese customs while spending a year in a Japanese high school. This game comes with Japanese audio and the option to choose either English or Japanese text, the e-mote system (a feature you may recognize from games like Nekopara), and Nekomimi Mode.

The game is described on Steam below:

Welcomed by the fluttering of cherry blossom, the main character, Brian, starts a new high school life in Japan. Brian soon starts to get along with two girls in the same class after they start to talk to him. With their help, Brian gradually learns Japanese culture and customs.

He deepens his friendships with each girl as they teach him how to study and spend time together after school. He gradually is able to survive through the commuter rush, May sickness, the rainy season, and more as he experiences Japanese culture for the first time.

Both demos are available to download now. The full game for A Magical High School Girl will be available on November 18, and the full game for Japanese School Life will be available on November 22.

You can find the trailers and some screenshots after the break!
