The gameplay is similar to that of the Princess Maker series also developed by Gainax. It was released for Microsoft Windows PCs in 2001, and the Dreamcast the following year.
A PlayStation 2 version called Shin Seiki Evangelion: Ayanami Ikusei Keikaku with Asuka Hokan Keikaku (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン 綾波育成計画withアスカ補完計画 lit. "Neon Genesis Evangelion: Ayanami Raising Project with Asuka Supplementing Project") was made another year later. The PS2 version has the original Ayanami route, as well as a new Asuka Route that can be unlocked. A Nintendo DS port of this version was released on August 27, 2008.
In Ayanami Ikusei Keikaku, the player takes on the role of a NERV officer who has just been assigned to Tokyo-3. Upon meeting with Commander Gendo Ikari, he is charged with taking care of the First Child, the mysterious Evangelion pilot Rei Ayanami. It is up to the player to decide Ayanami's weekly schedule, balancing between education, duties at NERV, and leisure. The game spans approximately one year, and includes the events of the entire anime series, as well as the movie The End of Evangelion.

Neon Genesis Evangelion: Shinji Ikari Raising Project (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン 碇シンジ育成計画 Shin Seiki Evangerion: Ikari Shinji Ikusei Keikaku) is a computer game based on the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. The player assumes control of Shinji Ikari, the protagonist and main character of the normal Neon Genesis Evangelion series, in the expanded alternate universe that was glimpsed upon for a few moments in the TV episode 26. Basically, the player decides Shinji's fate in how he lives his life. The story begins with the attack of the 3rd Angel, much like the anime. Different decisions and actions lead to various outcomes etc.
Play proceeds in three major ways: The weekly schedule, battle, and dialogue choices. The player chooses Shinji's schedule for each week (each day having two event slots); what Shinji does influences his statistics (for example, taking synch tests improves his ability in an Eva). On Sundays, Shinji can take part in extra activities such as shopping for items which have various effects or Nerv work which unlocks new Eva equipment. Battle controls are menu-driven and the outcome is determined partly by statistics and partly by luck. At various points Shinji will be asked to make choices during dialogue which can have far-reaching influence on the story.
Both the game and manga introduce three new female Nerv technicians: Kaede Agano (阿賀野 カエデ Agano Kaede) (voiced by Ai Shimizu), Satsuki Ooi (大井 サツキ Ōi Satsuki) (voiced by Maria Yamamoto), and Aoi Mogami (最上 アオイ Mogami Aoi) (voiced by Yui Horie).

Neon Genesis Evangelion: Iron Maiden (新世紀エヴァンゲリオン鋼鉄のガールフレンド Shin Seiki Evangerion Kōtetsu no Gārufurendo, lit. "Neon Genesis Evangelion Girlfriend of Steel") is a video game based on the Gainax anime/manga series Neon Genesis Evangelion, released officially only in Japan.
Original version was released by Gainax for Microsoft Windows PCs in 1997. Subsequently, Macintosh version was released in response to requests from Mac users. In April 2006, a "special" edition was released for the PS2 and the PCs, as part of Evangelion's 10th year anniversary, with additional scenes focusing on the TRIDENT pilots' lives. On April 9,2009, a version for the PlayStation Portable was released. This is one of the longest-running EVA games.
A shy female character, Mana Kirishima (voice by Megumi Hayashibara, the seiyu of Rei Ayanami), starts at Shinji Ikari's school and immediately admits to finding him cute. Gradually, a relationship unfolds and they end up going on a date. It turns out, however, that she is one of three test pilots for the TRIDENT (alternatively named the "Country Crawler") units, a new competitor to the Evangelions, similar to Jet Alone; thus the name Girlfriend of Steel. Eventually, the TRIDENT goes berserk and the Evas have to destroy it.
Throughout the game, Asuka Langley Soryu is constantly jealous of Shinji and Mana, consistent with her widely speculated romantic feelings for Shinji. Rei Ayanami is present but plays a rather background role in the story.
The interactivity in most of the game is limited to walking around areas until the next plot event is triggered. However, the one true branch occurs at the end of the game, where the player may choose to focus on Mana, Asuka or Kaji. This choice determines which of the game's three endings are shown.
In the Mana ending, Mana is discovered not to have been killed in the battle. Shinji rescues her and brings her back to his apartment. She showers, emerges wearing only a towel, and teasingly asks Shinji if he would like her to remove it. In discussion with Misato, however, it is agreed that Mana has to leave Tokyo-3, and she says a teary goodbye to Shinji who has won her heart.
In the Asuka ending, Asuka helps Shinji to get over Mana and the two children grow closer as a result. This ending contains romantic images of Asuka and Shinji together, including a moving scene where Asuka hugs Shinji emotionally.
The third ending with Kaji does not focus on any one character as much as the other endings do. Mana is also discovered not to be killed, and says goodbye, with Shinji replying "I'll be waiting for you".
The ending song is 予感 (Yokan, "Premonition"), sung by Yoko Takahashi.
