3D polygon-based eroge maker Teatime opened the official site today for their newest game, Love Desu 555. According to the demo movie and other promotional material available on the site, the game will be “the industry’s first collaborative online eroge”, with an internet connection enabling the player to join others in ‘battle’ and playing pranks on the girls, as well as “more ecchi things”.
The game has a fully supported offline mode as well, but the real gimmick potential seems to be in this so-called unlimited online play experience. Within the constraints of the game’s feature set and programmed minigames the incentive for online play may not amount to much, but they’ve announced that they’re using the Bullet physics engine in the game, so some unexpectedly amusing sandbox play may come out of this.
No release window has been specified yet, but they’re urging those interested to follow them on Twitter, so the news should be easy to keep track of.
