About the Studio
Shimmersoft (formerly Erotome Software) is an indie game developer that strives to make Games You'll Love. Specifically, we make otome games and visual novels that aim to be charming, positive, and mature (well, the last point is debatable).
01.06.2018 | Paws & Effect couldn't make a full release in 2018 for the Year of the Dog, but it is on track for release this spring. While we finalize its development, please enjoy a free demo of the game's first four episodes, available on its Itch.io page. Play it on Windows, Mac or browser.
02.27.2018 | With Paws & Effect nearing completion (with some substantial upgrades) and RE4: Otome Edition moving along, we've decided to re-imagine and solidify our brand identity. Hence our transition to Shimmersoft. Please see our Twitter page for a little more insight into the thought process behind the name and design. We look forward to sharing completed projects with everyone soon!
