Is there any anime/manga/game about game developer group?

#1 Post by redcat » Wed May 11, 2011 7:46 pm

As the title said, is there any anime/manga/game out there about game developer group/circle?
I found many titles about manga circle (like Comipa for example), but none about game circle.
If you know any title, would you mind sharing me the links (or at least the title so I can google them) ?

Thanks in advance. 8)

I can't think of any, but I suppose Welcome to the NHK touches on that.

I was going to say Comic Party, one of my all-time favorites, but that isn't game development. None are coming to mind.

Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai also has a few episodes where the main characters are trying to make a doujin game.

Koe de Oshigoto! is a manga and OVA series about high school students who work for an eroge studio. As one might imagine, the series is not safe for work. It's very ecchi, or perhaps light hentai, in nature.

There was a Japanese freeware game for PC (a no-frills version of a commercial mobile phone game I think) where you run your own game studio. Basically a game development themed business sim. I had it on my previous computer... will post here again if I manage to find it!

Found them!

They also have a manga studio sim (and the mobile version (apparently also free) is supposed to have an option of female protagonist)
Manga sim (<漫画作成シミュレーション>まんが奥の細道) can be found here: http://kairosoft.net/pc/manga.html
