A Glimpse At Island Life In Island Days

By Spencer . March 26, 2014 . 11:12pm

islanddays-01Island Days from Overflow and Karous Re:Beast of Eden publisher Klon is an interesting blend of a dating sim and a tower defense game. You play as Makoto Ito from School Days who is stranded in on an deserted island with a group of girls.


The tower defense part comes in when you defend your limited food supply from wild animals by placing characters on the map. In the event scene part you can forage weapons for the tower defense part or build up your relationship with Sekai Saionji or Karen Katou.


Here’s a look at some of the event scenes in Island Days before it comes out June 26 for Nintendo 3DS.

    Is that a gun I see in the top left screenshot? D:

    • Derry Santoso

      Yandere Island >:)

    • Yes, while the girl in the bottom left corner is riding Makoto

      I’m liking this game already

  • xAtKx

    All of my yeses. *__*

  • Ramón Navas

    I’m pretty sure at some point somebody is gonna kill someone

    • JeremyTMH

      Hopefully Makoto.

  • pantsonadog

    “or build up your relationship with Sekai Saionji or Karen Katou” Why not Kotonoha as well? That makes me a little less interested in this one. Also she’s falling off a cliff in that screenshot… Why they gotta do this to me?

  • chibidw

    You know…islands are surrounded by water. There tend to be boats in water.

    Some of the boats are NICE boats.

    • Kline Talladen

      …couldn’t have said this better, myself

    • Guy Wesley

      I knew someone was going to reference that in the comments.
      Hoping they reference the “Nice” boat somewhere in the game.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Ok time to spend all my time with kotonona and her sister for some reason I’m still shocked that he actually gets with her in cross days. But anyways.

  • Isn’t this supposed to be Overflow’s final game…..ever (I’m pretty sure they’ve stated this but I have to make sure)?

    • Stranger On The Road

      Sadly, the Stack won’t Overflow any more; they released their last animated game already.

  • lolcatz6657

    and here i thought school days hq was bad..

  • konsama

    I wonder the tower defense part is protecting yourself or the other girls from themselves. keke

    And whenever you fail your mission the screen will totally get covered in red.

  • Jesse

    Hope they show some gameplay, soon.

  • Rose Spinoza

    Aw, no yuki? Shame~

  • fairysun

    Without that ‘ending’, school days is just another harem anime.

  • kylehyde

    Being on an island with a lot of yandere girls or taking the risk of swimming to a safer place across the sea even if this is filled with white sharks? mmmm…. I guess I will have a better chance with the sea and the white sharks, even in the worst case my death will be more merciful than in the island

    • M’iau M’iaut

      The great whites are smart enough to stay away from the alpha man eaters.

  • nonscpo

    Is Makoto touching/groping Sekai in the picture or hugging her cause I cant tell?

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Hug. Ninty would not let him cop a feel I am sure.

      • nonscpo

        Oh really okay then…could have sworn that it looked like Makoto was reaching for her rear.

      • British_Otaku

        Is that a serious response? Nintendo don’t step into third party games distinctly more than other first parties.

        Taokaka from Blazblue to Katsuragi in Senran Kagura were fine.


        And neither of them as focused on copping feels and such as adaptations or sequels to H-games like this or Toushin Toshi… or perhaps High School DxD.

        • M’iau M’iaut

          Half serious, or a joke that I didn’t have time to spend more time with when entered on my mobile. A distinction can be made with what a BB, SK or 999 have done with VN events and what the School Day’s series has done elsewhere.

          We know where things go once Makoto starts lovin’. The other girls don’t take too well to that.

          • British_Otaku

            Rushed out humour on portable devices, I’ve been there with Miiverse. >_>

            Taking your previous post half seriously along with this one, do you mean that you expect gratuitous violence and (to a lesser extent notable sexual content) to not be present, that would not be a surprise because game consoles and portables in Japan wouldn’t pass CERO with that while the PC has the EOCS (who focus on PC games only and seem to restrict little games as they accept adult games in spades).

            You can read about numerous console games (Resident Evil 4 is infamous but Metal Gear ) censored for violence in Japan, quite recently both sexual and violent content were also removed from GTA V: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/129063-Japanese-Version-of-GTA-V-Censors-Violence-And-Sex-Scenes

            They can still get out a decent experience if they have strong use of sound, greatly drawn and paced CGs (as I don’t think this is going to be fully animated) and so on. 999 unsettled me like few other games did thanks to that.

            Detail isn’t as important as presentation, not being able to see the bodies was fine as everything else added up…

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Wasn’t quite thinking this much :p. But yes, I fully expect the creators are depending upon School Days to sell the title when the ‘endgames’ are far more likely to be handled as 999; with cuts to black and suitable music. No extended clips of boats, bridges or heads in bags.

            I am also guessing the screenshots are as adult as the adult action will get. Cuddling in bed, deep hugs, something approaching yuri-lite and whatever excuse is being used to dangle her off the cliff for an upskirt shot.

          • British_Otaku

            Explicit decapitation is basically out the window, but that doesn’t throw out being shot dozens of times, dying in burning buildings, falling off cliffs or having an axe swung on someone’s neck. It shouldn’t be too bad.

            The screenshots on the Toushin Toshi and High School DxD pages give me the impression that they could go a little further with the adult action, but what do I know.

            See a few of the them: https://miiverse.nintendo.net/titles/14866558073104041469/14866558073104041474/played

    I thought it’d be harem paradise but turned out to be yandere hell.

  • TheManWithPants

    I’m waiting for the inevitable harem route where Makoto convinces the girls that they need to *repopulate* the island. ifyouknowwhatimean.
