Now Updated with 'Dewesternized' Version!

Apologies for the late announcement, but let's make this official!

Due to popular demand, we have released a 'dewesternized' localization of Cherry Tree High Comedy Club which uses the original Japanese setting, Japanese character names / place names, etc.

This new localization is now the ‘official version’ (the Japanese continuity is preserved in the sequel Cherry Tree High I! My! Girls!) and is immediately available to anyone who already owns Cherry Tree High Comedy Club, but we have kept the original ‘westernized’ version available for anyone who owns or purchases the game in future.

Following this update, when CTHCC launches, you'll be prompted to select between 'Play Cherry Tree High Comedy Club' (the dewesternized version) and "Play Westernized Localization" - just pick the one you'd like and you're good to go! (Save games carry over between both versions!)

We hope you enjoy the new CTHCC!

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!

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.

EDIT: In the last few weeks since I played this game a dewesternised version has come out, which I have yet to play. I will update this review once I've played the new version, but I think most of my points are still valid.

+ 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 is a sequel, which is out now!

+/- 2 hours per playthrough.
+/- Sugary sweet story, very innocent.
+/- Perfect for kids.
+/- In the westernised version, the 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.
+/- In the westernised version, there are 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.


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

Warning: Lengthy review incoming!


Cherry Tree High Comedy Club is an interactive visual novel with the gameplay of a dating simulator.

Before I get into the review, I want you to know, that I played the westernized localization of the game. I’m going to talk about this in a little bit more detail at a later point of this review.

You play as Miley Verisse, a young comedy fanatic, who’s planning on forming her very own Comedy Club in her school. Miley’s roommate has already been compelled to join the club, but the problem is that school clubs have a minimum number of required members, which means that Miley has to find three more people to join her club until the end of the club trial period. That means you’ve got two months to manipulate and befriend as many people as possible.

This is where the dating simulator gameplay comes in.
There are six different characters that can be recruited and you befriend them by talking to them about different topics. You raise your skill levels by reading magazines or visiting places and occasionally you can also find random stuff on the ground that raises your skills as well. The higher your skill for “fashion” for example is, the more the friendship level of a character will be raised when talking to them about this topic.

This type of gameplay can get a bit repetitive, since you do the same thing every day. You get up, talk to a character, talk to another character, watch some TV and the day is over. Repeat until some special event happens or until the friendship level of a character rises.

To get a character to join your club you have to get them to friendship level 5, which is pretty much impossible to do for all 6 characters in the first playthrough. Fortunately there is a new game+, which allows you to keep all your skills and only resets your friendship levels.

The whole game has a lot of jokes, because, you know… Miley’s a comedy enthusiast and stuff.
There were some jokes that are right up my alley that I found really amusing and then there were some others that just fell flat for me.

The characters are rather diverse and even though some of them seem pretty spineless in the beginning, you find out that they have a really interesting background story after befriending them. On the other hand, there are also some characters that still seem rather spineless after you convince them to join your club and their background story is by far not as interesting as you’d expect.

A big problem I had with the game is, that it only supports a resolution of 640x480 and if you want to play it in fullscreen mode, the game window gets stretched to fit the height of your screen and you get two beautiful black bars next to the game to fill your screen. The settings of the game are also pretty limited, but hey, it’s a visual novel and not some fancy AAA game title, so I guess that’s expectable.

At the time I bought this game, no original version was available in English, only the westernized version, with different names and locations.

With the release of the sequel of Cherry Tree High Comedy Club on Steam we finally get to play the game in English with the original names and the same places as in the Japanese version of the game.

For example, Miley turns into Mairu and Cindy suddenly is called Haru. Also, chilli dogs turn into rice omelets, because, you know, western people only know chilly dogs and can’t comprehend rice omelets or something.

All those extremely western sounding names feel a bit out of place, because everything feels so Japanese and all those cherry trees in the background for example definitely don’t make me feel like I’m in the US either.


I’m going to be completely honest with you: Cherry Tree High Comedy Club was the first visual novel I ever played, so I might judge this game a lot differently than some of you visual novel veterans out there but for someone new to this type of medium, this game was a really good entry point and even if you’re usually not a big fan of those type of games, you might still enjoy all those cute characters and the nice setting.

The multiple endings and the new game+ give the rather short game some replayability, since you will not be satisfied with only knowing the background story of for example 3 of the characters but you will want to know the background story of all of them, even though they might not be as interesting as you’d expect.

All in all, Cherry Tree High Comedy Club is a pretty decent visual novel for veterans and casuals in this medium. It might have its flaws but it is still a really enjoyable game to waste some time with.

If you’re a diehard action fan who needs explosions, headshots and a lot of gore to enjoy a video game, or someone who detests reading and dislikes games that heavily rely on text in general, you might want to sit this one out.

Otherwise:

Should you play Cherry Tree High Comedy Club?

Yes. Yes you should.

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

A cute little visual novel. With the word "comedy" right in the title, the game is under pressure to deliver, and some might find the humor a little too bright and quirky, but it generally delivers. The gameplay can get a tiny bit grindy towards the end, but it's not really long enough to suffer much for it. I managed to just recruit the minimum of 3 characters two game-days before the deadline in my first playthrough, which clocked in at about 5.5 hours. A second play-through (which allows you to carry over your skills and records of the potential recruits preferences) took just another 3 hours and was wrapped up with an in-game week to spare.

Brevity aside, this game did successfully elicit both laughs and a few tears from me for the correct reasons. Actually, the short length could make this a good choice for someone who is hesitant to try something from the visual-novel genre/medium.

Also, I think the only difference between the original and westernized localization translation are the character names.

Cherry Tree High Comedy Club is a nice change tone compare to other games and offers something creative with colourful theme.The music was upbeat and rocking, the dialogue was funny like manga, and the characters were colorful and likable.the game also features multiple endings by how many people you convince in the end of the game to join the Comedy Club. The only issue I had with the game was the length in story that possible to finish in 3 - 4 hrs, however Cherry Tree High Comedy Club is fun to play.

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.
