Bishoujo Game "Yume Miru Kusuri :: A Drug That Makes You Dream" Now Shipping

San Diego, California, Wednesday, April 25, 2007 - JAST USA affiliate brand Peach Princess, the leading publisher of Japanese PC dating-sim games in English, announces the completion of production and immediate release of Yume Miru Kusuri :: A Drug That Makes You Dream. This interactive dating simulation game for Windows, intended for adults aged 18 and older, is the latest in Peach Princess's popular lineup of bishoujo games - games featuring beautiful women with whom the player can form meaningful relationships via choices taken throughout the story.

The game is set in a pastel-hued version of postmodern Japan, where you take the role of student Kagami Kouhei and guide his quest to find meaning and color in an otherwise lackluster existence. Along the way you interact with several girls, each exceptional in their own way, who hold out the promise of the answer you've been seeking - Aeka, the target of merciless bullying, Mizuki, the reckless student council president, and Nekoko, a strangely vital girl who insists she is a "fairy of the night".

Yume Miru Kusuri :: A Drug That Makes You Dream features a highly involved story, epic on a personal scale that deals more intimately than any earlier Peach Princess title with very real issues present in modern society. Themes of classroom avarice, suicide, and youthful temptations of escapism are all present, coming with them a depiction of the fragile beauty of life that it is your duty as Kagami to choose to protect - or abandon.

Acclaimed by Japanese critics for its brilliant characterization and scenes of haunting eroticism, Yume Miru Kusuri is the first in a series of artistically oriented titles planned for release from JAST USA and its affiliate brands over the coming months. As with other Peach Princess titles the player will enjoy completely uncensored graphics and a high-quality, faithful English translation of the original Japanese game text for dozens of hours of absorbing gameplay. The game's initial production run is limited to 1,000 pieces and contains extras on disc including the full game soundtrack in lossless audio format, character system voice files, exclusive artwork and trailers for other great JAST USA-distributed titles.

Further information on the game can be found at , and it is available for sale there as well as at other anime product retailers.


Ever since the first computers with color displays, Japan has had a strong culture of "love simulation" computer games, which simulate emotional and sexual interaction between the player and various game characters when the player "wins" the love of a given character. PC dating-sim games are often referred to "hentai" or "H" games by U.S. fans. JAST USA has been involved in licensing and translating Japanese dating-sim games since 1998, and is the leading producer and distributor of English-language PC games for adults in any form. The company has a catalog of over 50 English-translated games with every theme from maids to "cat girls" and more. Game titles are available to retail customers via or for wholesale customers at
