Maids With Balloons. (This Is An Actual Game)

By Ishaan . December 28, 2010 . 4:35pm


“Help these maids gather balloons and use them to fend off seagulls in a set of fun minigames.” Yes, this is the premise of an actual game on the Xbox Live Marketplace, titled Maids with Balloons.


And yes, that’s a screenshot. You can find more below, and a trial version here.


Unfortunately, the game fails to impress in the “cruelty,” “partial nudity” and “sexual overtones” categories, so really, the question you’re left asking is, “What was the point?”

    looks like one those bad edit games.

    pic 01 and 02 what the? it doesn’t get any stupid than that.

    i love maids but here ehhh.

  • I’m assuming it was wrong of me to assume it was originally a japanese game by looking at the title.

    • Testsubject909

      These sorts of games exists outside of Japan.

      But they mainly get overshadowed by what the Japanese offer, mainly because of the higher degree of quality.

      It’s not to say there aren’t some quality pornographical or perverse western games… But typically, they’re far less visually appealing, actually entertaining (gameplay wise), less customizeable or just suffers from poor presentation or, surprisingly, worse writing then what the Japanese have to offer.

      Of course, it’s not to say all Japanese products in that field are of good quality. But typically they’re far more appealing.

      Though, some will prefer the western games, mainly because of their usually constant attempt at extreme realism or the incorporation of real life video/pictures such as provided above.

      Though it typically ends up being somewhat jarring, as it contrasts poorly with the background or the game’s HUD, ends up being extremely cliche or cheesy, or just winds up falling straight into the uncanny valley when it comes to 3D games.

      As for 2D games, it really depends on whether you prefer western or eastern drawing styles. Though there’s also been a rise of westerners trying to emulate easterner drawing styles… With varying degrees of success.

      Aaaand… that’s all I have to say.

      • This is just wtf!!

        • Testsubject909

          Great TL;DR version. *presses Like*

          • Haha, i started to read but then i was like, “omg how can he comment so much about something like this xD” and then i just had to made my point clear xD

      • nyrjin

        Perfect, even if unnecessary, analysis.

  • Testsubject909

    I wouldn’t play this game, not unless you paid me…

    Seriously, it looks heavily unappealing.

  • wtf

  • cj_iwakura

    Kind of want to see the ESRB write-up on this.

    “There’s maids. With balloons.”

    • MarkMario

      Perfect review for this game.

  • i have never been so disappointed in life EVER..oh wait forgot about FF14

  • Darkrise

    *facepalm*… This looks so horrible. Tell me when these maids become 2D with a more appealing gameplay and I’ll buy.

  • mikanko

    Pales in comparison to the quality that is Techno Kitten Adventure

    • nyrjin

      And Techno Kitten Adventure doesn’t even need quality to be legendary.

  • M’iau M’iaut

    And I’m not sure how the halfwit developer can claim ‘no sexual overtones’ when you got half dressed college girls and a bed.

    Not that I find it remotely sexy, so perhaps that’s what he meant.

  • xxx128

    Now give us racoons, racoons with ashtrays. Please.
    Seriously, i am convinced if this was a ubisoft/ea title with enough marketing hype to back it up everyone would happily buy it.

  • vadde939

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Do they seriously expect someone would pay for this?
