ILLGAMES, a 3D beautiful girl game maker, announced on August 4th that it will start its activities. In addition, debut work “honeycomb]has been announced. The company is believed to be the successor company to ILLUSION, a 3D girl game maker that recently announced its sudden end of activity.
“Honeycomb” is a 3D character creation game for adults. With the ultimate character creation, you can enjoy “a sweet moment of bliss”. It is scheduled to be released on September 1st. And ILLGAMES, which handles the same work, is the manufacturer that announced the start of activities today. The manufacturer’s name, ILL, stands for “Innovative”, “Liberty”, and “Lovely”.
However, considering the circumstances leading up to this announcement, the predecessor of ILLGAMES can be seen as the game brand ILLUSION. The brand has been releasing games for adults since 1993. While going independent, since 2000 it has gained wide popularity mainly for adult 3D beautiful girl games. It gained popularity due to its beautiful real-time 3D graphics and high customizability.
However, the brand announced the end of its activities on July 14th this year. It was reported that development and sales activities would be suspended on August 18th. There were many upset voices from fans on SNS at this sudden news (related article).
Under such circumstances, what attracted the attention of fans was the former ILLUSION development team’s official Twitter account (now X). The same account changed the profile image etc. after announcing the end of ILLUSION’s activities. It was also talked about as a new development (Game*Spark). The account also tweeted on July 28 that the announcement would be made today. And this time, the account has officially started operating as an official ILLGAMES Twitter account. The start of activities was announced.
The debut work “Honeycomb”, which was also announced at the same time, is also reminiscent of the 3D beautiful girl game developed at ILLUSION. Also, there is an impression that the technical aspects such as anime-style shading have been polished. For fans who were saddened by the news of the end of ILLUSION’s activities, the news of the launch of ILLGAMES will be good news. According to the company profile, the company is developing not only anime-based games but also realistic games. There are also plans to develop viewer software that is not a game where you can enjoy the viewing itself.
“Honeycomb” is scheduled to be released on September 1st for PC (FANZA/DLsite). Please note that this is an adult game.
