NSFW: Is This The Most Delayed Erotic Game Ever?

Computer game Cross Days was originally announced for February 27, 2009. It is January 2010, and Cross Days is still not out.

The story follows Yuuki Ashikaga, a freshman at Sakakino Academy who navigates high school infatuations.

Back in 2008, it was announced that the visual novel would contain 3D animation. The February 27 release date was later pushed back to April 24. That release date was then pushed to June 26. To improve the game's quality, the release date was then changed to November 20... and then December 18.

Once again, the game was not up to par with what Cross Days developer Overflow was aiming to release. The release date was listed as TBA. A release date was then announced, January 29 of this year. (You know where this is going!) That release date was moved to March 19, 2010.

GRAND TOTAL: SIX DELAYS.

While Cross Days has yet to reach anywhere near Duke Nukem Forever's decade-plus, the title's constant delays are quickly becoming a joke. The developer appears to repeatedly postponing the game to release the best product possible. Or could it be something else?

Overflow announced in December 2008 that it was synchronising SOM, a hands-free-you-know-what-machine with Cross Days. According to Overflow, the machine moves in real time to corresponding on screen motions during "climax scenes". Perfectionism or masturbation - one of them could very well be the culprit for all these delays.

    Don't those machines costs $1000.

    Oh wow. The Japanese are really into hands-free solutions no? Can't wait for a portable option.

    Well I am assuming they have to put the hardware through rigorous testing to ensure it is safe and won't.... hurt anyone.
    I would hate to be that tester.

    That stuff sells in Japan? o.o

    hm, it is strange. You'd think a game of that nature would be 'coming' sooner rather than later

    ... Shit, School Days all over again.

    Oh god

    After much debate (on masse?) developers have finally thrown out the "hands on" approach and made the controllers "hands on you"?

    Seriously disturbing Japan.

    Don't ever change.

    Perfection and masturbation are one in the same. I'm going to get one of those. WIll submit review once I get one and this game is out.

    Rumor has it, it'll be for the Wii. Once strapped in, you operate it by grasping the Wiimote and shaking it vigorously.

    Hmm, kinda defeats the purpose

    I hope the size of the grip is adjustable. I mean in that picture it looks kind of small.. if you know what I mean. Also the hands better not be plastic, that could create friction burns.

    this toys are from 2003

    bad & not new at all!
