    Tech arts the overall leader of the other groups you listed have closed shop.
    Though some members from the Squeez label who went under with tech-arts have opened a new company.

    thanks, had no idea about their card game, are they using the CG from previous games into card games? and its sad the other tech arts disbanded, they had really good artists.

    It has been going about a year by this July. They do reuse a lot of art and scenes from various Empress games but they also have new scenes and cards using both older game characters and new ones.
    My avatar picture is one of the new girls taken from one of the scenes. If you know the purple hair milf from Starless they have a new card for her which is her dressed in a school uniform:

    Not sure on the scene though since I haven't seen it uploaded yet and i don't play the game anymore.
    I would also add that Empress have been putting out more merchandise like figures/daki's too.

    No more games from them. They closed shop 20th MARCH 2017. Here is an article from LEWDGAMER about it: https://www.lewdgamer.com/2017/03/04...charts-closes/

    Those images are both from the card game. One is scenes unlocked from SR/SSR rank cards and the other is just the cards images.

    TBH I don't think we will see a game from Empress till this dies out or another 5 years IF they are working one on the side. The main artist could barely get a game a year out before he started this game and even then new cards/scenes come at a snails pace compared to the rehashed stuff.

    "Normally" every company you mentioned were doing it early, but in the last year ... almost two years (or more) some of them have indeed not made any game. But same thing could be said about One-up, lilith, Black lilith (game wise not the card game on dmm), softhouse-seal, devil-seal, liquid, luxery, etc.
    No idea what the reason is but it's kind of shame that some of the popular company are not publishing every year or every few months.
