Neo-Confucian: Hate Plus is out on Steam right now
Hate Plus

I’m not going to pretend I know what’s going on here.

Visual novel fans, stop wasting time debating with fools whether visual novels count as games and get busy with playing another one. has hand-delivered news (ok, sent a mass email to the press) about , a sequel to Analogue: A Hate Story; which is a game that won a bundle of awards and made at least several games journalists put their hands on their chins and say “hmmm.”

Hate Plus is … well, here’s a short summary from the game’s official site.

I can’t believe it! My mission was supposed to be routine data recovery on an old derelict generation ship, but instead, I ended up rescuing an adorable AI girl who grew up in a tremendously patriarchal Neo-Confucian society? And now she’s discovered a bunch of messages left by the mysterious Old *Mute… and wants me to uncover with her the slow enactment of a regressive political program that caused her society to regress to Joseon Dynasty social mores?!

I wasn’t expecting this at all!

Neither was I, game website descriptive text. Neither was I.

If you’re wondering whether you’re legitimately trendy enough to handle such a thing, there’s an easy way to find out. Download Love’s Digital: A Love Story for free and play that first. Did you enjoy it? Great. You might like Hate Plus then. It’s on Steam right now for $9.00 USD (usually $10.00 USD, but it has some money off for a few days.)

If you buy it, get ready for for “transhumanism, cosplay, cake-baking, and the slow patriarchal erosion of freedoms taken for granted” in non-linear visual novel style. Yes.
