Illusion Releases Honey Select Character Maker and H-Trial


3D eroge sex simulator pioneers known as Illusion have announced a September 9th release date of their newest game, Honey Select.

When one says “Illusion”, one probably thinks of various fighting games like Love Girl or Play Club, and the fantastic modeling that fit the naughty nature of those games perfectly. When they first got into personal VR, they had the AV actress Sakura Mana-chan do motion capture for them, so they could make Play Girls’ movement and techniques look genuine. Even in their recent title, Sexy Beach Premium, they allowed a small portion of it to be in VR, which quickly captured the attention of VR enthusiasts.

It seems that their current project, Honey Studio, has the character creation and communication as central points, and has removed the time-consuming adventure parts entirely. Instead, the structure is now essentially “Create character > fap”. Apparently, how the scene plays out will influence what happens later, as well. Now, there’s more fun to be had. Any character you made in Honey Select can be transferred into Honey Studio and will be able to have anything done to them in full 3D.

If you’re wondering how this will work out, it does say “Oculus VG Program Distributed,” so we’re assuming it will work with Oculus Rift CV1’s Honey Select VR only, and may come with the product. We don’t know exactly how well this game will work with VR in general yet, but judging from what’s been announced so far, Illusion fans will have quite a lot to look forward to. Just check out a few of the screenshots from the trial version:

The busy bee modders and users of the HongFire forums have already sunk their stingers into the trial version of Honey Select, translating its UI and text and even beginning work on some uncensored modifications for the game’s female characters. If you want to indulge yourself further and join in on the fun with the trial version, you can find it by following this link. Should you need any help modifying your game, be sure to check out the Honey Select hub thread on HongFire and follow appropriate links from there. The character creator upload thread is especially worth looking into.

Honey Select is set to come out in Japan on the 9th of September this year and its physical version can be bought on Getchu for 7,380 yen (tax included).
