The Expression Amrilato is Now Available on Steam!



From the masters of localization at MangaGamer comes a stunning linguistic achievement - a yuri visual novel that will teach readers Esperanto - The Expression: Amrilato!

At first glance, The Expression: Amrilato is an all-ages yuri tale of a girl named Rin who's suddenly whisked away to another world, a rather common tale in anime, manga, and games. Yet what truly makes The Expression: Amrilato so unique and wonderful is the language barrier Rin faces. Though the girl who takes Rin in, Ruka, speaks a small spattering of Rin's language, the language of this other world is entirely foreign and unknown to Rin. Lost in a world where she's unable to communicate with others, Rin and the reader both must struggle together to learn the language of the world she finds herself in, which is represented with the actual language, Esperanto.

Players will be thrust head first into Rin's predicament, surrounded by a world that communicates only in Esperanto, with her savior Ruka struggling to teach her their language. As the story unfolds, The Expression: Amrilato introduces language lessons that teach Rin and the player how to understand Esperanto, with the text in-game constantly evolving to show Rin's incomplete knowledge of the language, whether it's none at all, solely pronunciation of words, or whole words and phrases. As the language barrier falls, so too do the barriers keeping Rin and Ruka apart.

The game even features an extensive quiz-style study mode for those who are dedicated to learning Esperanto! Those looking to use The Expression: Amrilato as a legitimate tool for learning Esperanto will not be disappointed either. All the Esperanto text in game was officially supervised and approved by the National Esperanto Association in Japan, and English experts on Esperanto have further reviewed the localizations for accuracy as well.

This heart-warming tale and amazing educational tool is now available on Steam, so order your copy today and get 20% off!

About This Game

Yuri Visual Novel

The Expression Amrilato is a girl-meets-girl yuri visual novel.

This visual novel is for people who:
  • Enjoy subtle love-like feelings between girls.
  • Have an intellectual curiosity for learning.
  • Just like watching cute girls having fun.
  • Are willing to take in a touching story that will probably make you cry.

Story

Rin was just buying a snack in her hometown’s shopping district — but she gets a shock when her surroundings suddenly transform.

"...Why is the sky pink...?"

She should know this area well, but the unreadable letters on the signs and the strange language the people are speaking have made things unrecognizable.

...Just then, Ruka, a girl so cute she could be an idol, appears and extends a helping hand.

Rin, who exudes positivity in spades, and Ruka, a supportive girl who speaks only a smattering of Japanese.

This is the story, pure and sometimes frustrating, of two girls intertwined through their fumbling efforts to communicate.

In-depth Alternate World Language

In "The Expression Amrilato", the main character is lost in an alternate world where Juliamo (which in the real world is Esperanto, an existing constructed language) is the official spoken language. Therefore, while enjoying a story between cute girls, you can also learn language of Esperanto!

The text in this game has been officially supervised by the National Esperanto Association in Japan. You additionally might be able to learn some Japanese through the Japanese version included in the package, and Chinese is planned for the future!

Game System

  • A full length visual novel with lots of cute voices!
  • Studying Esperanto through the quiz-oriented Study Mode (Also something you can play directly through the main menu.)
