Cover Shares Goals for Hololive Holo Indie Game Brand

Cover published a blog post where it explains the Holo Indie initiative in more detail. It had previously established the Hololive derivative work game brand in mid-November 2023. In the new blog post, the company went in-depth with the backgrounds behind the brand’s establishment and its goals for launching the program.

Cover specifically noted the successes of Besto Games’ Idol Showdown and Kay Yu’s HoloCure as an impetus for launching an indie game support program. With the Holo Indie brand, the company strives to create an ecosystem where indie game creators can get a return for their development efforts and grow together with Hololive Production and its Vtubers. Cover also wants to see Hololive games in a wide variety of genres delivered to the Vtubers’ fans.

Submissions for new Hololive-themed games of any scale are still open, provided they will be available on PCs via the Steam platform. However, Cover also noted that it is taking time to review the submitted entries and answer inquiries as it had already received a large number of submissions.

The first game under the Holo Indie brand is HoloParade. The tower defense game has been available worldwide on PC via Steam since December 2023. It is also the first officially endorsed Hololive-themed game to have a price tag of $3.99, as HoloCure and Idol Showdown are available for free.

Cover will formally reveal the second and third Holo Indie titles in the near future. The new games will also be available on PCs via Steam. Kay Yu’s second Hololive-themed game, Holo X Break, will also be part of the brand.
