Otome Visual Novel ‘Because We’re Here’ Hits Greenlight with a Demo

Are you a bit tired of all the saccharine, high school-based otome visual novels out there? If you’re looking for something a bit darker, then Because We’re Here ~ Mohnblume und Blauerose may be for you.

Taking place during an alternate history World War One, our protagonist Elfriede must make her way through the battlefields, meeting hunky guys along the way. Of course, she’ll also find a great deal of violence, death, and disease along the way. Because We’re Here considers itself a darkly comedic otome game and it sounds like it’ll fit that bill easily with this juxtaposition of themes.

Curious to give the visual novel a shot? You’re in luck as a demo of Chapter 1 is available right now. Because We’re Here ~ Mohnblume und Blauerose is planned for release in 2016 but you can give it a thumbs up on Steam Greenlight right now.
