Wish we still had games with these art styles, so many beautiful ones. Cool tricks like mesh shadows & transparencies too.

Had to post this stuff from Dragon Master Silk II, it's such a great looking game! Such colourful and satisfying pixel art.

So, I kinda want to get into the PC88 and PC98. Are there any games that you guys recommend? Probably Nihon Falcom games are a good bet, right?

Although these aren't actually screenshots of the PC-98 version of the game, they are from the DOS and FM Towns versions that are direct ports.

This is a really nice looking game with a classic Japanese feel, I love that overused dithering.

Oh yeah, this game is actually really good, I'd recommend it!

Uncharted Waters New Horizons
















FM Towns Version

Too bad that among the retro craze of the last 10 years we never got games made in this art style.

I've been looking at these games and loving the art for 24+ years online and even owned a few PCECD versions of the games.

Porn art from them too :3

Well a couple like VA-11 Hall-A and 2064 are sort of in that same category but obviously not as detailed or good looking. I still like them.

Pity so many of those games went untranslated. I'm a sucker for old visual novels that made you "Think" and "Search" 25 times before allowing you to move on and discovering you missed a crucial time-limited event and you're now stuck.

I'm not being facetious, I really think those games rule.

Quite a few PC98 games have been translated in the latest years.

Tuned Heart being the most recent one.

Goddamn... I love the aesthetics on display in these shots. I'm going to have to seriously look up a way to play something of this stuff if it's possible.

By fair my favorite platform of the 90s aesthetic-wise. Just takes a fair amount of homework to avoid the hentai games (or find them if that's your thing!). Luckily there are some good emulators out there to try this stuff out because without those, most of these games will just fade into the annuls of history.

That's the thing though, so many seemingly normal games just have random fan service hentai in them. Grounseed, for example, is a pretty run of the mill fantasy VN/RPG that has borderline underage unconcented sex that comes out of nowhere. Exceptional soundtrack though, so whatever. Play it for the music.
