RPG Based on Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time Launched

Peter Grill

A new game based on the Peter Grill anime series has been released. Titled Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time: Defender of Virtue, it’s available now on G123, a browser-based game platform. It supports Japanese, English, and Chinese languages.

Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time is a romantic comedy anime series based on Daisuke Hiyama’s manga of the same name. It stars the fantasy swordsman Peter Grill, who takes part in an international fighting tournament and wins, being crowned “Strongest Man In The World”. His newfound fame and battle prowess inspire him to ask the Brave Swordsmen’s Guild Master for permission to marry Luvelia, his beloved (and the daughter of the guildmaster).

Unfortunately for Peter, that same fame has drawn powerful women from other species, seeking to seduce him as a stud to establish a “superior bloodline”. Ogre princesses, elven sorceresses, goblin childhood friends, and orcish outcasts alike compete for Peter’s “seed”, while Peter himself tries desperately to hide the harassment from his new fiancée, whom he has yet to do more than hold hands with. Her overprotective father, meanwhile, schemes to end their relationship. The “Philosopher’s Time” in the title refers to what’s sometimes called “sage time” or “post-nut clarity”, a feeling of calm that people experience after achieving orgasm.

Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time: Defender of Virtue features characters from the series and blends “idle game” mechanics with turn-based RPG-style battles. Players can form parties of six characters, set up parties, and take on monsters. The game is free-to-play and is supported by a gacha system for summoning new characters. Players can also gain affinity with the characters in their possession and unlock some saucy artwork.

Players who start the game during the launch window will receive some rewards. These include:

  • A 5-Star character, Vegan the elf
  • 4,000 gems (premium currency worth 20 summons)
  • 40 Rare Summon Tickets
  • 500,000 Ally XP
  • 1,000,000 Coins
  • 20,000 Steel

Rewards from the game’s pre-registration and login campaigns will, when claimed, also add up to another 160 free Rare Summons.

Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time: Defender of Virtue is available on G123, playable via browser. The first season of the anime and the ongoing second season are available on HIDIVE in North America.
