I’ve always wanted to get a G’s Festival magazine ever since I spotted a few at Heisei Democracy. It’s more expensive than most manga and anime magazines since they add in a few special well made extras.
This month’s focus is “Moonlight Cradle” a game (Eroge) that comes out on Feb 27. As you can see from the picture above in Akihabara courtesy of Punynari, there’s been advertisements for this game strewn throughout.
Apparently a few of the characters have appeared before in other games, but this one is not a direct sequel to any of them.
G’S Festival Vol. 15
Dengeki G’s Festival magazine specializes in bishojo games and devotes issues to games and includes exclusive items on the characters. Vol. 15 focuses on “Moonlight Cradle” an eroge that features numerous heroines from the game, which is coming out for Play Station and PC.
The magazine really has some dynamic art pieces including a small but awesome illustration gallery. G’s Festival included three exclusive items: a mouse pad, a cellphone cleaning trinquet and a gigantic pillow case.
This issue starts out with a section on the main characters and some profile art pictures of them with some including some rough sketches and game art.
After looking through the art work, it really got me inspired to get started on drawing again. I’ve noticed a few of these characters have some resemblance to other well known anime which is a good thing. Like Cynthia, looking exactly like Nagi from Hayate no Gotoku….can’t wait for the second season.
Feena Fam Earthlight
This is a promotional video for the game. It’s got a nice theme song.
Festival also dedicates a few pages to the game itself which looks pretty cool. I think the last Japanese game I played was some years ag0 that ran on Windows XP or 98. I think if I’m able to find it for a good price I’ll probably buy “Moonlight Cradle.”
I’m also planning on getting a macbook pro, which means that I’ll have to get parallels to use Windows on in order to play this game…and know a bit of Japanese.
Another extra that came with the magazine is a gigantic pillow case featuring Feena. Surprisingly enough, the material its made out of, is very well made. It feels more like polyester than cotton. It’s pretty shiny too.
G’s Festival magazine itself is pretty thin, but it comes with all these extras and some fantastic art. Based on what I’ve seen so far, in terms of the graphics, “Moonlight Cradle” is a game that I will actively seek out and put a review on whenever I’m able to find it.
The magazine is something I may pick up on a regular basis, depending on what game they showcase next and what extras they include.
I end with my favorite part of the magazine. This issue also included a brief illustration gallery for “Moonlight Cradle.” I’ve got to start drawing again!
