[Review] Egykoi --- dating sim for women that fall in love with ancient Egyptian gods


Japan has every kinds of dating sims, but this EgyKoi is eccentric in them most. Because all characters except the heroine are ancient Egyptian gods. This is the funny-surreal-comedy mobile game that Japanese mobile game developer Goodia released last month. players control the heroine and choose to pursue Anubis, Horus, or Medjed.  Each of the three gods are wearing  Japanese school uniforms despite their respective animal heads.

At first, the heroine meets a upper-class student Anubis in a new school term. He is a son of the doctors, excellent student, chairperson of student in charge of discipline, and healthcare Staff of his class. Why is he such a setting? Please check Anubis in Wikipedia.

Transfer student Horus came over to the heroine's class. Originally he was her childhood friend, but has been leaving the town on account of the work of parents for a long time.

The heroine went to the gardening club where she belonged to in after school. The leader of gardening club is Osiris, but unfortunately cannot fall in love with him. By the way, there is a mysterious student behind him...

He is Medjed. He is expressionless and taciturn. He is always with Osiris for some reason and cautious of people approaching him. In addition, his special abilities are to fly and give beam from eyes.

The heroine made friends with a cute girl student. However, she is also an ancient Egyptian goddess. Please pay attention to her head. Her name is Bastet, the goddess of the cats.

The heroine enjoyed athletic festival with them...

Enjoyed the forest school(a training in school education in which students lodge together)...

Went for the summer festival of the shrine together in summer vacation...

Opened gender bender cafe in an annual school festival...

In this way, the heroine brings up love with three gods while enjoying annual events of the Japanese high school. Choices appear in each place of the story, and a story diverges by the choice. Because this is dating sim of the multi-ending type, we do not know what happens to the heroine until the last.


However, there is an important point. The heroine is murdered by Medjed when we get a wrong choice. Because he is "the Smiter"(Check Wikipedia). It is the worst bad ending.

Battleships, castles, cars, heavy industrial machines...etc, Japanese games changed every thing into beautiful girl characters. Japanese Prime Ministers of successive cabinets are no exception.

Japanese contents platform DMM released tower defense game SEIKEN MANIFESTIA for PCs. DMM is known as a publisher of popular Sea fight game Kan Colle.

At first, instructions are displayed when we begin a game. "This game is fiction. This has nothing to do with actual people and groups. It really have nothing to do with them. This is the simple fantasy that beautiful girls fight."


Tower defense game is very serious and proper. Each character have skills, we make full use of them and capture the position of the enemy.

A new character appears at random when we win a battle. Who is she? Her surname is Saitō...

Makoto Saitō, the 30th Prime Minister of Japan! (Wikipedia)

Characters except them are attractive, too.

People and cabinets of source are reflected in their setting. This become study of history if we check Wikipedia while play this.

In addition, we can meet characters secretly in ryotei(料亭), the traditional Japanese restaurant, and present various things to them. When we perform them several times, we can gradually make friends with them. It is a really ironical function :)

This is Bishōjo(beautiful girl) game for Experts class. The tower defense game to get close to Japanese Prime Ministers(At present, it is only men) is unprecedented.

This is a suspense game, and players struggle to help the people who fell down suddenly. If players do appropriate measures, the people are saved, but if players failed?.....






In this game, it is important not to mention performing appropriate measures. In addition, it is more important that we perform them quickly. If time is quick, the survival rate rises. The Japanese Circulation Society wants to raise a survival rate at the time of the use of AED by this game.

Japanese high school established a company. Stockholders are all students

Overseas Tech and business media say that Japanese people are lacking in entrepreneurship. However, is it true? The newspaper of Gifu Prefecture placed interesting news. Gifu commercial and business high school established GIFUSHO Co., Ltd. Stockholders are all 1,200 students, they develop original products, and they sell these from now on.


A purpose of this is to let students experience corporate management by this company. Board members are graduates, parents and teachers, but students run the company and the CEO is picked from them. The capital is 100,000 yen(about 847USD) and graduates financed it. And all students invest by 2,000 yen(about 17USD) in this spring. 2,000 yen 1,200 = 2.4 million yen.

They plan the sale of the product which they developed jointly with food companies in the prefecture. The profit are allotted students, but they want to use them for training costs of classes and regional contribution. At first, they aim at the profit of 1 million yen. The scale may be small, but this is a big challenge.
