Major Update

Thanks to the success of this campaign, we have funded the development of five separate games for a 2016 release, if you pledge at the £55 and higher level you receive all five games, daki's for them, bonus games and much more content...

Because of this expansion to the campaign the reward levels have changed slightly, as shown in the chart above. Simply put though £10 will get you Army Gals, £20+ will get you Army Gals and Summer Fling, £30+ will get you Army Gals, Summer Fling and Battle Girls 2140.

Finally the £55 reward level will give you all games; Army Gals, Summer Fling, Battle Girls 2140, My Girlfriend & Coterie: A study in magic. In addition it gives all digital rewards, daki designs, wallpapers and a steam key for every other game we release this year too.

Now onto the game details...

Army Gals is an adult visual novel set at a retreat for delinquents. The protagonist is forced to attend after a misunderstanding back at home. Expecting a fortnight of hell, he is pleasantly surprised to find he is sharing the retreat with three beautiful but very different young women.

Survive!

What starts off as a normal retreat takes a suddenly unexpected turn when the four of you are left in the middle of nowhere, having been left by the camp counselor to 'get supplies', he never returns, you soon realize you will all need to rely on each other.

Unlock their Hearts!

As you continue through the wilderness, encountering different events it will be up to you to try and survive this nightmare and possibly in doing so uncover the secrets of the women you are with and maybe even their hearts. With multiple good, bad, funny and harem endings to the game.

Meet the Army Gals

Three young women are left stranded in the wilderness with you;

Andrea, Raen & Edda

Each girl has their own temperament and back story that led them into this strange situation with you, and could one of them know more about what is going on than they seem?

Any stretch goals funded will be worked on simultaneously so that they can be included with the game on release.

Thanks to the generosity of kickstarter backers we have achieved all of the main stretch goals for Army Gals development, the stretch goals we reach now are funding further development of our title Summer Fling.

Reward Selection

To receive a copy of Summer Fling, you will need to pledge at the £20 reward level or higher. See the graph below for more info to help you choose your preferred pledge level and rewards...

About the Game

Summer Fling is a short, fun adult visual novel set during summer, it is being developed by a separate team within Dharker Studio's to Army Gals, with its own dedicated artist and writer to ensure a suitable concurrent development.

Yuuki & Saeki
Yuuki & Saeki

The game follows Kasumi as he spends his first weekend of summer break with two girls from school, at his families lake house, before he begins the summer of cramming before his college entrance exams.

Backgrounds from the Game
Backgrounds from the Game

The game will include multiple decisions points, with alternative endings based on the decisions you make, will the summer fling become something more than friendship or will it just be something to remember.

Our aim is to release the game shortly after Army Gals is released, nearer the end of Summer in mid-September 2016.

We have now announced our third and final game of the campaign, if by the campaigns conclusion we have exceeded the £12,000 goal that will see Summer Fling fully funded then all further funds will go towards the continued development of Battle Girls 2140.

BG2140 has its own artist and writer who are already working on the game art and story-line. To receive a copy of this game you need to pledge at the £30 reward level and higher...

About the Game

As can be guessed from the title, this game is set in the future, where you find yourself to be the country's chosen Mech Pilot. But to pilot one of the great battle suits, you will need a co-pilot, giving you the choice of three potentials to work with in the upcoming mech tournament.

Shien, Maika and Akiko
Shien, Maika and Akiko

Each girl has her own strengths and weaknesses in and out of combat and it will be up to you to decide how and when to utilize them in the tournament, though your decisions will determine what romance possibilities can occur as a result.

We currently do not have a set date for release, though our team is aiming to complete the game by the end of the year.

My girlfriend is a yuri styled adult visual novel about a lonely woman whose three new interns all appear to have an interest in her... But as more than friends, this game will be a fun and silly title of love, sexuality and shopping.

This game is included in the £55 reward level and higher.

Thanks to the campaigns progress we have now funded the creation of a digital dakimakura for all four characters due to appear in 'My Girlfriend' for the £55+ reward levels, alongside many others already included.

Risks and challenges

We now just need the additional funds to allow us to expand the scripted story-lines of our 2016 titles and create the final artwork for these games, to bring them to life and give us a little more time to develop and balance the current gameplay through a beta testing phase.

All of the development is being handled in-house by Dharker Studio, with each game having its own dedicated writer and artist team, to ensure that no matter what happens we can keep working on the games and release according to our current schedule for 2016.
