JAST BLUE’s debut publication of the boys' love horror title sweet pool has finally arrived to Steam and JAST USA.
Sweet pool is a BL horror visual novel, developed by Nitro+CHiRAL. This is JAST BLUE’s, JAST USA’s boys' love imprint, first publication and the first official English localization of one of Nitro+CHiRAL’s titles.
Sweet pool is a boys' love story full of mystery and flesh. While it is a dark romance with boy-on-boy action, there are depictions of gore, cannibalism, insanity, and more. The uncensored version of the game was released on JAST USA and the all ages version on Steam. If you buy sweet pool on Steam, you can still decensor it by purchasing the DLC from JAST USA.
After recovering from a serious illness, Sakiyama Youji hoped that things would finally get back to normal. But shortly upon returning to school, his world begins to change—and no one seems to notice. Bizarre symptoms plague his body, and vivid hallucinations of blood and flesh stalk his every waking moment. At the same time, two fellow students — the stoic Tetsuo and the notorious troublemaker Zenya — begin to take an intense and inexplicable interest in him.
What are Tetsuo and Zenya after? Are his hallucinations really nothing more? Everyone seems to know more than they’re letting on—but by trying to put the pieces together, Youji may be sowing the seeds of his doom.
sweet pool is no simple romance. Experience the story of a young man whose life takes a sudden plunge into a world of obsession, conflict, and desperation, a story of men joined by a bond deeper and darker than love, with violence and passion waiting on every pathway. Will you react to situations with reason, or instinct? Your decisions will shape the path of the story and determine the ending of this gripping visual novel. Stunning artwork and a haunting musical score bring the horror and beauty of sweet pool to life. Fully voiced by the original Japanese VA cast.
You can buy sweet pool on JAST USA and Steam. Both sites have it on sale with Steam marking the game down to $15.99 and JAST USA discounting it to $19.99.
