My Magical Cosplay Cafe by sake-bento My Magical Cosplay Cafe by sake-bento

Updated with REAL CGs now! Many thanks to *SaEun for drawing such lovely pieces. There's even a brand new CG for the happy end. : D

Release Date: April 1st

Meet Takeshi, a normal guy who works as a chef at the Magical Cosplay Cafe. He wishes he had a girlfriend, but he doesn't. Can you help him find happiness?

Genre: Um...silly? Yes, this is an April Fool's release. No, it's not a prank. This is a REAL VN that actual artists and composers put actual time and effort into. We just figured that today would be an appropriate day to release something this silly.

Download for a .zip file that works on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Hehe, the last one is sort of the silly ending. Pick the silliest answer you can each time.

Do you have all the CGs except for the fourth one? I can make a patch for you if you've got the first three.

I have just one problem though, I can't get one of the CGs. D: How do you get the 4th event CG?

sake-bento Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Sorry for the late reply. D: The fourth CG is for the "True End," which you can only get after you get all the other endings.

I added a walkthrough to the site: [link]

There's a happy end and there's a true end. They're not the same thing.

The happy end is the easiest to get, I think. Just pick breakdance every time. ^_-

For the true end, you have to get all the other CGs before it unlocks. Then go through it again, making all of the girls happy.

the 10 years-old sister one DISGUSTED me utterly. WTF are you doing games like that? I don't like these things. :(

This game is an exaggerated parody of common things in Japanese visual novels. It's not unusual to have the main character do something like that. In this case, though, he's punished for his actions (as he should be) instead of getting away with it (as is common in many Japanese visual novels). It IS disgusting, and I think people need to see that it's NOT an okay thing and that aiming for an end like that results in punishment, NOT sex.

oh I understand. Hmm, I guess it's called "satirical" right? I'm sorry. I don't understand sarcasm or satire, so I thought it was serious... :( But yah, people who do that must pay for it. Jail + psychosocial counselling.

:iconsake-bento:
sake-bento Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yeah, it's meant as satire. This whole game is very cynical.

Actually, all the endings are meant to be negative consequences for things that many Japanese VNs give the player positive responses for. Kurokage's end is a negative consequence for lying to get in bed with a girl, and Yamato's end is a negative consequence for sexual harassment.

ooh ok. Sorry again for the misunderstanding. See one of the outcomes of bad socialisation: taking a satirical comment as a menace. -__-; (a note or something at the beginning of the game would make us cynically-impaired aware of the social critic in the game...)

Maybe those VN that give positive responses to such behaviours are targeted to those who are aroused by such situations? Hopefully it's not the majority of humans. But then, are these medias (for example, lolicon hentai) good as they keep pedophiles or agressors from hurting *real* people (they appease their urges with fictionnal characters), or do they serve as a trigger for them to cause harm in the real world?

sake-bento Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Not a problem. ^-^ This was originally released on April 1, so initial players know it's a joke. I'll probably have to be more blatant about it, though. Hmm....

There are a lot of VNs targeted towards people who do get aroused by situations like that. Looking at the Visual Novel Database, I see 537 games listed under "lolicon," 395 games listed under "incest," and 830 listed under "sexual harassment." Compare that to only 359 listed under "science fiction," and you can see what sort of things people are really interested in.

I wouldn't say the media itself is "good" or "bad." It merely targets people who are already predisposed to like that sort of stuff. If I enjoy football, playing a football video game isn't going to make me play real football less. But if I'm not interested in playing football, a football video game won't make me suddenly become a football player.

Gah, can you note me how you unlocked each ending> I've only unlocked the little sis one, the take over the world one, breakdancing, female is a male, boring ending, missed opportunity ending, friendship ending, and that's all. There is still one I need to unlock! If you would please help me, that would be nice.

Can you help me unlock the take over the world one. The one you are missing is true ending. First accuse The girl with blue hair eating the ice cream then, when riri comes in and drops the plates help help her pick up the plates. Then whenever the girl in the red dress comes in saying how she's been working hard help her. Then when the blue hair girl comes in tell her she's beautiful and when you get to the battle choose to go back to the cafe and everything will unfold.
