Kairosoft can take 16-bit graphics and a few scripts and turn them into fun over and over again without fail. This time the Japanese mobile game developer has strayed a bit from its typical approach, though, by combining its world builder-style titles with a Pokemon-esque RPG element. Yeah, it's weird.
Back in July, popular game developer Kairosoft released a new game called Oh! Edo Towns. Much to the surprise of Kairosoft-lovers, however, it was region locked to Japan.
But not anymore. Now, Oh! Edo Towns is available in the Play Store for all users.
Oh! Edo Towns keeps that familiar (and loved) Kairosoft style, but goes back in time to the Japan's Edo days. Build houses, castles, and all other sorts of old-school architecture, and place building side-by-side to create "combos." It's your town - build it how you see fit!
Quick. Name the top three most time-consuming video games you can. Did you say RPGs, sims and "anything that even remotely looks like Farmville"? Well, one, Farmville already is kind of a sim so that doesn't really count and two, yes! Now, what happens if you mix all of these together into one big, colorful Japanese game? You get Kairobotica.
Part of the game takes place in a sim space colony where you build shops, tech, and bolster your forces for missions.
Have you ever dreamed of creating and managing your own imaginary school? No? Well Kairosoft has launched a game that lets you do just that, regardless.
Indeed, Kairosoft, who has in recent memory brought us such releases as Dungeon Village and Cafeteria Nipponica, today made available a "management simulation game" called Pocket Academy. As its name suggests, with the app, you can use your phone to create a school that matches your dreams perfectly.
If you've ever taken a look at the top Android games (or if you just follow Android news closely), you've almost certainly heard of Kairosoft before. They're the developer behind major hits like Game Dev Story and Grand Prix story. Now the company is back with a new title: Dungeon Village.
The game looks quite similar to the other titles, but they seem to think it has a bit of an RPG flair to it (though we can't figure out how):
So, who's ready for another Story game from Kairosoft? This go around you're not developing games, managing a spa and inn, or racing your way to glory - this time you get an entire planet to yourself!
Epic Astro Story puts you on an untamed planet, and it's your job to make it livable. Once you've made your ideal habitat, the game isn't over - you have to protect it.
Kairosoft, maker of the many popular Story games (such as Game Dev Story and Grand Prix Story), has released a new game called World Cruise Story. As with the other games, the title really says it all: your objective is to manage a cruise liner from top to bottom in order to meet objectives and make money, much like old-school games such as Sim City or Roller Coaster Tycoon.
