While MangaGamer generally focus on publishing their own licensed / localized eroge and all-ages visual novels to the English market, especially over the last year they have been more active in including other titles to their online store from indie developers.
The latest additions to their line-up includes both The Flower Shop and Spirited Heart series from Winter Wolves Games. Both of these series are split up into two parts with bundle editions also available for those who don’t wish to buy them separately.
These are now available for download via the MangaGamer official website. Information on each (Details provided are only of the first game in the series) are available below:
The Flower Shop: Summer in Fairbrook || The Flower Shop: Winter in Fairbrook
$19.99 each or $33.98 as a Bundle
The Flower Shop is a dating and farming simulation game.
Steve’s life has just taken a downward turn. His grades from his first semester in college are dismal, his relationship with his girlfriend is rocky at best, and now his dad is shipping him off to some farm for the summer so that he can ”build character”. What’s a poor, lazy, college kid to do? Take control of Steve as he spends a summer in Fairbook, working on the farm, making new friends, and maintaining old relationships.
You can raise and sell your own crops, but you’ll have to work hard to keep your land well watered and free of weeds and insects, or your crops will fail. Stop by the flower shop to buy more seeds, but choose wisely. Some plants take longer to mature, and some crops will get you a better return at the market.
There are four girls who you can spend time with. Maintain a good relationship with them by spending time with them and learning about their hopes and dreams. You can impress them by improving your skills, but if you only focus on one thing, they won’t be interested. Build a strong enough friendship, and it might even bloom into romance. You can plan your weeks and who you spend time with using the weekly scheduler. Customize each week, spend time with who you like, or ignore everyone and work all day. Don’t forget to take a break once in a while, or your health will suffer.
The game features nine different endings that change based on your decisions throughout the game. Will Steve finally learn to be responsible? A good farmer, even? Will he make up with his girlfriend, find a new romance, or end up alone?
It’s all in your hands.
