4JH-App/Lifewonders, LLC, developers of the new iOS gay dating sim/RPG The Summoned Brave & The Fantasic Boyfriends (also known as F-kare) have confirmed that they are considering an English release for the title. (Note: It’s likely that the intended spelling for the title is “Fantastic”, but I’ll be using the current spelling until instructed otherwise.)
F-kare, as mentioned above, is a combination dating simulation and RPG just released for iOS platforms in Japan. Telling the tale of a young man transported to a fantasy realm, F-kare features a variety of beefy men to woo. Among them, an Oni turned Knight, a gentle Monk, the local Guild Master, and even a Dragon. All under the watchful eye of the King, the hero will battle fearsome (and also suitably beefy) enemies side by side his suitors.
The developers of this game have stated that they are committed to creating content for gay gamers, and all others interested in these type of experiences, regardless of sexual orientation. They also wish to support other LGBT creators in providing them with a safe outlet for their talents. Plans for an English release of F-kare are still tentative, but if you want to support this game and its developers, you can like/reblog this post and/or send 4JH-App a tweet to their official twitter account. (They just recently started posting their updates in English.) You can also check out the game’s official website here, and the game artist’s (NSFW) tumblr page here.

Realy hard, fast, and heavy breathing.
The BL/Bara game, No, Thank You!!! (developed by pa-rade for the PC) has been announced for a western, English release by the company MangaGamer. This marks the first official English release of a BL game since 2006. (And the very first one featuring Bara characters.)
No, Thank You!!! centers around a young man named Haru. One day Haru saves a well-muscled gentleman from being hit by a car, but in the process, he loses his memories. To repay his kindness, Kouichi Inui, the man who’s life Haru saved, brings Haru to work at his bar (sótano) while he recovers from his amnesia. But sótano is no ordinary bar…
No, Thank You!!! features four men that Haru can pursue…
Hiroyuki Akiyama, the bartender of sótano.
Ryu Kurosawa, the pianist at sótano.
Maki, sótano’s manager. (He also works in the kitchen.)
Kouichi Inui, the aforementioned owner of sótano.
This BL game is unique in a lot of ways, mainly because of the types of men you can form sexual relationships with. (Older and more muscular guys are not a staple of the genre.) Also, you can actually control the amount of body hair each man has, giving the player a lot of say over how the guys are presented.
Release date and pricing has not been announced yet, but stay tuned.
More screens after the cut…
