In 1997, the reign of PC-98 in Japan was ending. The publisher cancelled our game in development, and the project files were tossed aside. Memories of the abandoned project faded into obscurity. However, in 2011, a new employee discovered an unlabeled backup tape covered in dust, and quietly restored the contents...

Message from the composers (The real story)
We are two Western composers, who have taken a great deal of inspiration from Japanese pop and game music. When we heard the music for eroge on the PC-98 in the 90s (particularly "Kono Yo no Hate de Koi wo Utau Shoujo YU-NO" by Ryu Shimada and Ryu Umemoto), we were amazed by the sound quality of the songs and their catchy and sophisticated style.
Because this music doesn't get much attention in the west, we decided we should make a tribute album to this sort of music. We asked Swedish artist Diana Jakobsson to draw us characters and American pixel artist Jordan Chewning to provide us with authentic PC-98 style cover art. We hope you enjoy it!
