The demo for the popular boys love visual novel sweet pool is available on Steam.
We have covered news about sweet pool’s release before, but there is finally a demo available and a scheduled release date.
For those who don’t know, sweet pool is a BL horror visual novel developed by Nitro+CHiRAL, who have previously developed DRAMAtical Murder. It follows Sakiyama Youji, a high school boy who spent a long stay in the hospital before returning to school. Recently, he has been seeing hallucinations of blood and flesh while he is awake. Another strange occurrence is that two students at his school, Tetsuo and Zenya, have a sudden interest in him. What could this all mean? It seems like everyone’s hiding something and it’s up to Youji to find the truth, but will this help him or doom him further?
Sweet pool is scheduled to release on December 19th.
