[NaNoRenO 2011] - My Magical Cosplay Cafe (With proper CGs!)

Because it's not a crazy NaNo game without a few loose ends. >.>;;
MagiCos now has proper CGs now instead of the previous rush jobs, including, by popular request, a CG for everyone's favorite ending. Many thanks to peong-keu for working so hard to get them all done.
Also, if you prefer a Windows installer, you can get that at my site.

The game follows the life of Takeshi, a chef at a cosplay cafe. I was inspired to write this because I realized that I haven't written a "proper" Japanese romance VN yet*, and I really wanted to do something with cute girls, magic, and a happy end. I hope you enjoy it.

Very fun treat for April 1st! Great music, and the humor is likewise amusing. I think a lot of people will be picking nothing but the breakdance options in this game. :D

Catchy music. :mrgreen:

Honestly, I have no idea how to take this. I kind of want to lump it in a bucket with games like OMGWTFOTL, but in its own crazy way, it seems a step removed from them. I think I'll just wait for a zeitgeist to form, and then agree with it.
A lot of good use of ATL, certainly - and an interesting game structure. I cheated a little to get all the endings.

dat true end.
The repeating time thing kinda reminded more of 999 than anything else. Nothing beats Breakdance end though :V

It wasn't that hard. Each choice was pretty clearly linked (with a bit of trial and error) to each 'girl' so all you had to do was either focus on one, or all of them.


On a side note, there sure are a lot of magical girl parodies this April Fools. I guess we have Madoka to thank for that.

Hilariously, I was thinking about Madoka when
the true end revealed that Takeshi had time travel powers xD

Well, that was interesting.

Not sure what else to say except I enjoyed it, and nice use of Japanese name puns :)

The true end was based on
Higurashi. Although it is rather reminiscent of 999, as well.

Nonomohe is my personal favorite.

And I haven't seen Madoka yet. D: It's totally on my list. The inspiration actually came when my boyfriend offhandedly said "You know what would be the worst visual novel ever? A harem game where the guy is a chef at a cosplay cafe with a bunch of cute girls."

A cute thirty minutes - fun for as long as it lasted. No really romantic end, so I think the best ending is the
breakdance ending.
It would have deserved a CG of its own, though...

Just finished it, those 20 minutes of play-time was worth it!

The one ending where
you find out that riririri is the MC's sister
made me laugh and creeped out at the same time same goes for the
Yamato turning out to be a boy ending
.

I liked the
breakdance ending.
as well, wish this one had a CG but the song makes up for it. :)

This one is hilarious, it's differrent from your other games but I loved it!
