Let's take a look: Hentai Platformers (2D) (2015)

EDIT #1: I will continue to update this post as upcoming games are released!

[2015/09/30] Samurai Sacrament released! [Official blog post]
[2015/11/14] Anthophobia released! [Official blog post]

-----------

I thought I'd take a breather from AoA's development and write a post on the games that is to come for 2015. I'm sure some of you might have heard them already but just in case someone haven't, I've put together a list of H-platformers below for your convenience.

I hope 2014 was a good year for you because 2015 promises these H-games that should more than satiate your appetite for sprite sex!

Let's take a[n ecchi] look:

Platformers


1. Noaika by Kyrieru
After having released Kurovadis and Eroico, Noaika is Kyrieru's current project. Having tried the demo, the difficulty level is rather high as with his previous games. The game starts with a dark ambience and showcases a number of amazing sprite H-animations. I'd say the ambience and lighting engine in-game has been amazing thus far.

The game is still undergoing development as Kyrieru continues to polish and add additional content.


2. Samurai Sacrament by Mosaboru
Released on 2015/09/30, check official blog post!

This game looks absolutely amazing and is probably the most beautiful H-game I have laid eyes on. The background, game effects and character sprite-works are on another level for H-games. There's currently a few sprite H-animations you can find in the demo (obtained from the first page of Mosaboru's blog) and a CG while the rest of the CGs remain unrevealed, likely kept for the final release.

YouTube showcase to show what I mean.

It looks absolutely beast and Mosaboru has been quite actively posting update on the blog so maybe we'll see a release in 2015? completed the game and is out now!


3. Future Fragments by HentaiWriter & Co.
Future Fragments (FF) is pretty new, having started development only in January. Much progress have been made so far developing the engine ground-up to the now very early alpha demo. The 3-person team consisting HentaiWriter, CheshireCat, and TriangulatePixel whose artwork looks amazing and unique.

Future Fragments is currently running on Patreon, aiming for completion some time in the third quarter of 2015.


4. Crisis Point: Extinction by Anon42
Crisis Point: Extinction (CP:E) has been in development since mid-2014 and has had multiple demo releases with the most recent ones found at Anon42's development blog. So far a number of sprite sex can be found within CP:E, including game over from a boss, while you explore the Metroid-inspired world.

CP:E is also running on Patreon, although no official release date has been announced yet.


Extras #1


Although technically not platformers, they do involve explorations on 2D platforms so I thought you readers might be interested in these other mentions that contain sprite H-animations:

5. Anthophobia by Sourjelly & FJLM

Released on 2015/11/14, check official blog post!
Anthophobia is a zombie-eroge with a twist of greens. You play a heroine who is partially immune to the plant-zombie infestation, trying to survive the outbreak. It seems that the design of Anthophobia is that of a slower paced survivor game, requiring the conservation of ammo and have objective runs (e.g. start the generator). Sourjelly have a demo (contains a few sprite H-animations already) posted at his/her blog. Anthophobia will contain CGs in addition to the sprite H-animations.

It appears that Sourjelly has just completed the intro screens for the game. We should see a release very soon. Game is now complete. Check out Sourjelly's blog!


6. Parasite in City 2 by PixelFactory
And of course, there's no missing this last one that is the sequel to Parasite in City. PiC turned heads when it was released in end-2013, so there's a lot of anticipation for the sequel. Development for the sequel is already underway but following PixelFactory's recent blog post, it may well take the entire year to complete.

Currently no demo for has been released.

P/S: This is in no way a complete list, merely findings of my own. Also AoA is progressing still!

Extras #2


Additional games missing in the list for 2015 (courtesy of suggestions in the comment list):

7. Ghost Hunter Vena by Vosmug
After having completed Xenotake, Vosmug is developing Ghost Hunter Vena. The new game has been in development since some 3rd quarter 2014. Vosmug is now adding the dialogues, events and drawing more sprites (yay).

There's already a demo at the dev blog, so I'm guessing we'll most likely see a release in 2015.

  1. Thanks for the updates! A lot of this flew right past my radar. I had no idea a Parasite in City sequel was in the works, for one!

    1. Glad you found the list informative! I hope to make more lists like that in the future so check back regularly.

  2. Sprtie sex!? Forget that for a minute, the makers responsible for those games have made SOLID games. By that I mean besides the H content the games themselves are actually challenging compared to others. They force you to think and use problem solving skills alot like a regular (NON-H) game would. I hate that in this genre that the H scenes are the main focus,I understand it but I think it takes away from the enjoyment have playing a good game. Something that will take you a couple of days and not just 20 minutes.

    1. Ah yes I suppose I forgot to cover the rich gameplays of the games. I thought I'd keep it really short and provide immediate information like demos, devs blog and release dates, so I leave it up to the readers to try the games.

  3. nice list, some I hadn't seen on there.
    You should def try out Splatter School, Undercover Girl, and Studio-S.
    although you probably already did. and Studio-s has gotten way too violent.
    I hope to someday make an archive of all of these games, since there are a lot that have disappeared as vaporware.

    1. I've dabbled some splatter school and some studios games though they might be a little too violent for many. Haven't tried undercover girl though.

      I think it'll be really cool if you could compile an archive of those games. They're becoming increasingly tough to find as newer games flood the market.

    2. To tell the truth I already did, I have an archive of about 80+ Gb worth(even blogspot artists) and created a torrent, but I was kind of testing the waters to gauge your reaction, since some people get pissed about that. If anything I hope to get a seedbox and maybe distribute it on hdds to people who pay enough to get them, since I have no resources myself. but I doubt it will work.
      anyways, I hope your game is progressing well, I hope to make an H-game of my own now that I finished production on my other game.
      I feel like I did it at the right moment too, a lot of games are now vaporware and disappearing permanently.

  4. Vosmug, Erogi, Project X (Yeah right) and of course, Cherry Poi!!

    1. Thanks for the info! I think Vosmug's new game looks like it'll fit into the same category so I'll add it in.

  5. btw blogspot is fucking us all over and banning adult content, only way we can get around it is linking to previews on another site, as Azurezero is doing.

    2. eh sorry, didnt check my mail. turns out we scared them. I think they were probably bracing to win the fcc vote. so now 18+ is back to stay, business as usual ;P

    3. Awesome stuff but I would try and set up a 2nd blog elsewhere. Gotta have insurance!

  6. Sad so many good things are in JP only. Too difficult to navigate the sites and understand the games. Oh well. You should look into putting a list together that involves the player being male for once next time.

    1. Well the Japan market for hentai is preeetty big but we're definitely seeing more western developers coming up. I do my best to bring them into your sights.

      I think I might continue to make more posts like this in the coming months. Maybe they could be categorized by type such as male protagonist, scrollers, top-down views, RPGs and etc. but they will be mostly on upcoming games with sprited H-animations (which is why readers visit this blog, IMO).

      This one in particular is about upcoming platformers.
