Doujin Games Have A Home At Rockin’ Android

Rockin’ Android is the latest in a list of promising publishers of the kind of games we like to play. Founded by Enrique Galvez and operating out of Los Angeles, Rockin’ Android consists of a four-man team that specializes in the licensing and localization of doujin games.

 

The interesting part, though, is that the company also enlists the aid of fan translators to help out with its projects. Future games you can hope to see from them include: RosenKreuzStillette, Dread Lock, Crescent Pale Mist, and Big Bang Beat.

 

Rockin’ Android’s current projects include shooters Suguri and Gundemonium Collection, both of which you can read about on their official site. For anyone interested in the full story of how Rockin’ Android came to be, Gamasutra has a fantastic piece up on the topic, so be sure to give it a read.

    Oh, you should edit that to the new HG101 domain, since Classic Gaming is being destroyed soon.

    “hardcoregaming101.net” is the new domain name (;

    I’ve actually written an article there, so I would know, dawgs (shameless plug).

    Anyways, this is phantasmally AWESOME. I love Doujin games (I’ve got a decent collection, actually) and this will hopefully last a long time (unlike some other companies who do things like this, they usually die out which is a shame.) Good news all around!

    Yeah I did my part and bought Suguri. Game is not extra-hot, but looking forward to Gundemonium and the ones you listed.

    Wait…RKS is in the line-up?

    Oh geez…and I know people that fan translated that and released it not too long ago. I wonder if they’re in cahoots.

    EDIT: Talked to one of the people involved. I wouldn’t expect a release of RKS by RA…especially when they already have a copy of it in English going for $13.23 (1260 yen) that is to credit [erka:es] only. Source: http://eng.dlsite.com/work/=/product_id/RE051185

    As far as I’m aware, it sounds like they’re aren’t interested in profit. Whether or not that changes…can’t say.

    EDIT 2: More still, if I might: http://schwer-muta.blogspot.com/2009/08/rockin-android-is-trying-to-get.html

    Thanks for bringing this up, SE.
