Stay! Stay! Democratic People's Republic of Korea is made by 'DEVGRU-P' team behind the highly successful (and only slightly less offensive) game Panzermadels: Tank Dating Simulator. Stay! Stay! Democratic People's Republic of Korea is made in the style of a classic work of literature (Japanese Visual Novel). You know exactly what we're doing here... Don't lie. With two different romance plot-lines and multiple endings based on your choices, Stay! Stay! Democratic People's Republic of Korea will keep offending you for a number of playthroughs!

 

The year is 2016, America is back in Afghanistan, and you, soldier, are about to get a well deserved vacation. What better way to spend it than with some of your Korean Army pen-pals, Jeong and Eunji? "Pyongyang" is just a suburb of Seoul, right? Unfortunately not. Welcome to North Korea. Enjoy your stay.

Try and navigate your way through one of the world's most tightly controlled dictatorships, with two cute soldiers by your side. Avoid getting shot, executed, black-bagged, or tried for treason as you explore Pyongyang's most famous tourist attractions.

Stay! Stay! Democratic People's Republic of Korea will bring all the heart-warming, non-offensive humor you expect from a DEVGRU-P game! In Stay! Stay! DPRK, you will be able to...

  • Go on vacation. 
  • See North Korea (Best Korea). 
  • Travel around with cute tour guides (military police officers). 
  • Date Them. 
  • Also there's probably a hot spring or something. 
  • We know what you're here for.

Stay! Stay! DPRK is being made by a team of artists well respected in the anime and visual novel industry. With sprite artists from the team behind HunniePop, and background artists who worked on Gurren Lagann (天元突破グレンラガン), Stay! Stay! Democratic People's Republic of Korea will be one of the best looking English Language visual novels on the market!

"We've added fullscreen after numerous... four letter "suggestions" made on the Panzermadels forum <3"

 

 

Jeong - The older sister and an Intelligence Officer in the Korean People's Army. She learned English at the Korean Ministry of State Security and speaks it very well, although she still has trouble with American slang and euphemisms.

Eunji - The younger sister and a Military Police Officer in Pyongyang. She never learned much English and gets frustrated by Jeong speaking better than her. She has a "no-nonsense" attitude, and can out-shoot anyone else in the Pyongyang Military Police Battalion.

 

Character/CG Art - 40% Our major expense is quality artwork. We're working with some of the artists from the original sprite artist from HuniePop and the background artist from the Gurren Lagann anime series, to ensure we get the best quality art for Stay! Stay! DPRK.

Music - 10% One of our team members is a classically trained composer and providing a lot of the musical inspiration of the game. In addition, a Sakagami and Nanahira are providing additional music.

Programming - 15% We're bringing an additional programmer onto the team for this game, because we're moving towards using a new, far better, engine for Stay! Stay! DPRK.

Writing - 15% As Stay! Stay! DPRK is a larger game than Panzermadels, we've brought a very talented writer onto the team to help make the story even better!

Backer Rewards - 10% Getting the backer rewards made and shipped across the country will take up the cost here, we want to make sure it's all high quality content that our fans will truly enjoy!

Kickstarter Fees - 10% This will cover what Kickstarter and the Payment Processor takes from the total raised.

Risks and challenges

The team is dedicated to bringing a funny, cute, and creative game to the English language Visual Novel market. Making a game isn't without it's share of risks though, but with a strong core team, we can pull through any challenge that may come across.

We want to distribute the game through Steam greenlight, and so Valve will have a lot of effect on how long it takes to distribute it on Steam. If for some reason we are unable to get the game greenlit, we will be distributing it through alternative channels.

Our last game, Panzermadels: Tank Dating Simulator, was very popular, and received a "Very Positive (92% Review Score) Rating" on Steam, so we have the experience to see a project to fruition.
