Cherry Tree High I! My! Girls! is Available NOW!

Cherry Tree High I! My! Girls! is now available on Steam as a standalone game priced $3.99, and together with the original game Cherry Tree High Comedy Club in the Cherry Tree High Complete Pack, priced $9.99.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/333220


As promised, the new, 'dewesternized' localization of the original Cherry Tree High Comedy Club that uses the original Japanese setting, Japanese character names / place names, etc. is now available. This new localization is now the 'official version' (the Japanese continuity carries over to CTHIMG) and both the new and original ‘westernized’ versions are now available to anyone who already owns Cherry Tree High Comedy Club on Steam and to anyone who purchases the game in future. (& for the record, save games carry over between both versions.)

Once again, thank you to everyone who has supported CTHIMG on Greenlight and THANK YOU for supporting us and developer 773 by purchasing the game!

About This Game

Comedy fanatic and high school student Mairu Hibisu has decided to set up a comedy club in her school, but her nemesis and the head of the student council, Chitose Karasuyama, isn’t about to make things easy… The school rules require a minimum of 5 students to set up a new club and Mairu is 3 people short! Spring break has just started and Mairu has until the end of April to recruit the 3 new members she needs to start the club or Chitose will have the last laugh!

Guide Mairu through idyllic Cherry Tree Town as she makes new friends and endeavors to persuade them to join her high school comedy club in this anime-style comic adventure game.

Explore the town and level up Mairu’s repertoire of conversational topics by reading books, watching TV, etc. then apply them to persuade potential recruits to join your new club. Some topics require money to build up, so you will need to find part time work such as cleaning the local temple and making jewelry accessories.

Developer 773’s game features a host of quirky characters, catchy music, and is a must-play for fans of anime and manga. Laugh and the world laughs with you!

Key Features:

  • 6 characters to recruit and many more NPCs

+ Free demo!
+ No bugs whatsoever!
+ You can transfer your Repertoire plus Targets' likes and dislikes to the next save file
+ ...So if you didn't make it the first time, you'll definitely get a good ending with the next playthrough
+ There may be a sequel(?)

+/- 2 hours per playthrough
+/- Sugary sweet story, very innocent
+/- Perfect for kids
+/- Translation is aimed at Americans who don't (necessarily) know anything about Japanese culture, even though there are shrines and cherry blossoms - but it works nonetheless
+/- Lots of references to (American) pop culture
+/- Simple art style, quite nice but not eye poppingly awesome

- Repetitive gameplay
- Not very original in its genre, both with gameplay and characters
- 2.5 playthroughs needed for full completion and no way to skip the last week or two (which is annoying if you've finished both your Repertoire and your Target list halfway through April)


Conclusion:
Not very original, but still enjoyable. Get it on sale. 7/10


(I played it while offline, so Steam didn't register my gaming time. :< )

It's a dating sim, without the actual dating itself.

Adorable casual game based on a social link system reminiscent of Personas 3 and 4. The gameplay isn't anything special, but the characters are cute and the spritework is nice.

Cherry Tree High Comedy Club = One of the worst games i have ever played


As far as dating mechanics and characters goes. Before you start throwing out the you just suck line check my profile i have only had one or two bad routes and those were like my first two routes ever played on any vn. I'm a quick learner but i also quickly learned that on this game picking the right dialogue option wasn't good enough. Oh no not for CTHCC. You have to have pick the right dialogue option and completing the minigames. I don't care if you're pick the best route.
I finished all the minigames in a night and then go to bed then game over!! This is worse than katawa shoujo and go go nippon put together i kid you not. I have also learned that even when im clearly picking the wrong option i have a better shot at finishing th e route if don't say anything at all.
I'm sorry but this game is utter trash. The only thing it has going for it is the fact its a vn. Take that away and this would be the worst game EVERRRR

This was a charming little experience! It could be described as Persona 3/4 without the drama and battling, or as a platonic dating sim, if you're into that sort of thing. Expect some routine anime shenanigans, with characters deep enough to be interesting. It's a very lighthearted, easy-going game, but all the characters feel "real" enough to give it sufficient depth.

My first playthrough took about four hours, and my second around two and a half. It's not a long game, but it's full of characters and personality, like a town from Paper Mario: tTYD, you can keep coming back to people for new looks at them. The game emphasizes making friends and being a well-rounded individual, which I think is as good a moral as you could get. I do wish there had been some forewarning about some aspects of the relationship-building dialogues. For example, you can only discuss a topic once with a "target," for the entire playthrough. Of course, this isn't a huge obstacle, and it only makes the game have stronger replay value.

Don't count on much action, or even multiple dialogue options. All of the gameplay focuses on skill-building, time management, and selecting good topics of conversation. This is simply a great game for those looking for solid characters and friendships in a quirky, somewhat-cliche anime setting. If there's a sequel coming out any time soon, as the end of the game implies, I'm very excited for it!

This isn't just a game about high school antics and comedic integrity. It's a game about the importance of friendship. This game taught me that you should always follow your dreams, and that's a lesson everyone should learn.

First off; I am going to say it is like a dating sim, in that you build relationships and meet people.

The game is simple and doesn't try to be anything else, it doesn't shoe-horn in mini games to pass time, it tells a story and introduces you to interesting and funny characters; the more you learn of, the more you discover how deep they all are.

The game can be tough, you play a highschool student and have to maintain homework, limit fatigue and all while also trying to maintain knowledge of various topics to discuss with potential friends and peers.

If you want a visual novel type story with plenty of interaction and decent length of gameplay, pick this game up

There is nothing funny about this game. The jokes were either unfunny to begin with or they fall flat in translation. The game's mechanics depend on leveling up comedy stats over the course of a few months in order to befriend other barely cute anime girls. In practice, however, you spend a lot of time leveling up stats without ever using them for anything. Therefore, you are forced into a few hours of grinding before you find out if you're doing the right things or not. Even if you are, the payoff in this game is supposed to be the charecters and the humor. The humor has been adressed, and the charecters are all two demensional cookie cutters of anime girl sterotypes. I wanted to like this game, and I could have gotten past the unintuitive mechanics if the story or charecters brought anything to the table.

An extremely interesting little visual novel--there aren't a lot of these localized for the US which makes the market really limited so bear that in mind as you consider the purchase. If you're really into story elements then this game might be for you, but even then it can be a little weak.

NOT FOR EVERYONE, but if you're interested in visual novels then this is a fair choice. PLAY THE DEMO FIRST, and if you can get it for less than a buck you can practically make your money back off trading cards.

Cherry Tree High Comedy Club is an almost "dating sim" kind of game, as such its target audience, especially in the way this one is written seems to be women/girls. I however can't fault it for that, and what it does offer in my opinion is some quality gameplay for that genre combined with great dialogue and a decent size city to explore. My grievances are the limited and random statements made by characters, often causing them to repeat the same thing throughout intervals and the somewhat grindy nature of some conversations, provided no in game events are occuring (needed more in my opinion in this regard to detract from the basic gameplay). All in all it is a game of good value if you like the genre, that does even despite these listed flaws keep itself interesting through humor and the odd friendship/life lesson.

Very nice game! A very nice pixely RPG style anime game, with a very rich plotline to compliment the genre. If you like any RPG anime games such as Corpse Party, I highly reccomend this game. If you play mainly anime fighting games like Street Fighter or Vanguard Princess, and are new to games like this, it might not be the best for you, but you never know! Aside from that it comes with a badge, its own set of cards and a rock bottom price! The jokes in it are easy to get, and can be hilarious at times. I think this game got me laughing about 75% of the time I was playing it! Very Highly Reccomended

9/10. Got the good ending on my 3rd playthrough. Excellent game, would give it a 10/10 if the gameplay was actually longer.

This is a light-hearted game that offered me the change of pace that I was looking for. You can say that it is somewhat of a social simulator. You play as a high school senior named Miley who is determined to start her own school club. She decides to make a comedy themed club. In order to do so, she needs to recruit at least three other studens, or else the school will not allow the club to form. You spend your time roaming around town learning new skills and studying certain topics in order to hold a conversation with potential recruits. Simply put, you have to become good friends in order to get them to join your club, and the best way to do so is to learn about the things that they like and talk to them about it. The game is very short, for me about three hours, but it felt right. The graphics are a blend of SNES and anime, which works perfectly for this game. I wish there were more games like this.

Weird note: Looking at the art for this game (buildings and shrines), it's clear that this game takes place in Japan, but in the English version of the game, they say that it is in America. It's nice to see that the developers were kind enough to try to be inclusive with the American audience, but unnecessary. Modern day Japan is not a foreign as it used to be. I would not feel out of place there.

This is one of those games that never gets the attention and thanks it deserves. Its by far one of the best games ive played, its a great visual novel. But visual novel isnt the best word to describe it. I would more so say, Indie or...well, Comedy! Its a light-hearted and fun game that you want to suceed in. Did you fail? Restart! The characters stick with you and make you want to know what else that they have to say. It isnt the longest game ou there but for a medium-short time game its really impressive. Just a fun little gem that should get the credit it deserves.

If you get it, have fun! :D
