Eushully (エウシュリー, Eushurī?) is a Japanese eroge studio based in Sapporo, Hokkaidō. Games produced by the studio often reach high positions on Japanese sales charts, even gaining the top rank among eroge,[1][2] but as of 2016, none have been officially released outside Japan.

History[edit]

Eushully was organised in 1998 as a development team within Arkham Products. In March 2005, the members of the team made the decision to incorporate as the limited company Eukleia under the direction of Hiro Fujiwara.[3]

The company mainly produces JRPG themed games with their most famous franchise being Ikusa Megami.

Reviews and criticism[edit]

The studio's first game, War Goddess, met with primarily neutral or somewhat negative reviews, due to technical issues, repetitive music, and the story, which was regarded as mediocre at best.[4] Some sources cited the original nature of the battle system and well-produced CG images as positive aspects.[5]

War Goddess 2 received fairly positive reviews for its characters and gameplay system,[6] but was criticized as, like its predecessor, having a weak main plot and requiring excessive time to be spent on levelling in order to advance.[7]

Maid in Bunny was praised for its art and Zelda-like gameplay; the most common complaint was of the game being too short.[8]
