Maidens of Michael releases on 22 February 2018 on MangaGamer.com and Steam, now available for pre-order (Updated 6 February 2018)

Update 6 February 2018: A demo version is now available from MangaGamer.com. It includes the first few chapters of the common route and excerpts of one love scene from each couple’s storyline.

MangaGamer has announced A Kiss For The Petals – Maidens of Michael is scheduled for release on 22 February 2018 at a price of $34.99. Pre-orders are now open on MangaGamer.com at a discounted price of $31.49. Maidens of Michael will also be available on Steam.

As with The New Generation, this version benefits from a complete rewrite in the Ren’Py engine, bringing support to macOS and Linux; an increase in resolution to 1600 x 1200; new features such as a Climax Timer and customizable text box; and use of modern, efficient compression methods for images and sound.

For the first time in the series, a full-length title will be available on Steam in an all-ages edited form. Explicit scenes are deleted, with their corresponding images and replays unavailable from the Extra menu. However, a small number of CGs that portray partial nudity are retained. A content patch will be available free of charge on MangaGamer.com to restore the omitted content. The Steam release will also include achievements, and the Steam store page contains a video showing a segment of the first chapter.

MangaGamer’s announcement for the pre-order and release date is reproduced from the staff blog below.

Risa-Miya Theater Episode 7

MangaGamer has published Risa-Miya Theater episode 7, “My Sweetheart’s Handmade Lunch”, to YouTube.

This is a video series created to promote A Kiss For The Petals – Maidens of Michael, featuring Risa and Miya in situations that introduce their characters prior to the visual novel’s release.

Beginning with episode 6, Risa and Miya have already begun their relationship, and refer to each other with familiarity. At the time of its publication in 2012, Maidens of Michael had already been released. It is my belief that completing A Kiss For The Petals – Remembering How We Met, a prequel to that title, will be sufficient to comprehend the dynamic between Risa and Miya compared to previous episodes.

Maidens of Michael Programmer’s Corner

I’ve written an article detailing programming challenges for A Kiss For The Petals – Maidens of Michael for MangaGamer’s staff blog. The Ren’Py port includes features from Remembering How We Met and The New Generation, so my previous articles on those titles are recommended if you have not yet read them.

This article discusses the creation of the adult content patch for the Steam version and the techniques I used to minimize the size of image data. All of the enhancements I added to the Ren’Py ports of the previous two titles are present here, one of the most anticipated titles for English localization since its release on 30 November 2012.
