Graffiti Gets Busy With Success, Success Corp.

By Spencer . November 3, 2009 . 9:40am

image Atlus used to be the go to company for Success games like Izuna: The Legend of the Unemployed Ninja and Touch Detective. These days Success isn’t making as many games and Atlus is busy with other titles. That opened a door for Graffiti Entertainment and they struck a deal with them. Graffiti has Windy x Windam, Shepherd’s Crossing DS 2, and Shepherd’s Crossing PSP in their lineup.

 

Shepherd’s Crossing is a series of farming games, similar to Harvest Moon, but with an emphasis on sheep herding. The PlayStation 2 game, released by Valcon in North America, had a turn based RPG hunting mini-game.

 

Windy x Windam is an interesting pick up because it have found a way into North America via Europe. German publisher DHM Interactive announced a European version before Graffiti got their hands on it. Other niche titles like Minon: Everyday Hero, Spectral Force Genesis, and Record of Agarest War went through the same process.

 

Special thanks to Hayden and Chris D. for the tips!

    Are the Shepherd games in sequel with each other or are they only connected by name?

    I’m surprised Graffiti is still in business. I know they were having a lot of problems finding the money to get out physical copies of Black Sigil.

    I wonder who they use for translation and what kind of work whoever they use does.

    They’re also bringing the Commander game over for the DS — an Axis and Allies styled game that might interest a similar audience. It’s interesting to see a few more of the EU developed games swinging over this way.

    I like Harvest Moon, but Shepard’s Crossing sounds a little dull. HM really benefits from having a dating sim as well as farming. I’ll keep my eye on it, but I’ll remain skeptical.
