After a similar game by Tactics, One: Kagayaku Kisetsu e, became a hit in 1998, Visual Art's scouted main creative staff of One to form a new brand under them, which became Key. It contains only about seven brief erotic scenes in a sentimental story the size of a long novel (an all-ages version was also released afterward), but the enthusiasm of the response was unprecedented, and Kanon sold over 300,000 copies.In 2002 a 13-episode anime series was produced, as well as another 24-episode anime series in 2006.Finally, I got my hands on latest English version of this RPG porn game. Well, you can thank to Prince of Spandex who wrote this detailed Robozou Walk Through.
FM Towns also received many games, more so than Sharp X68000 or MS-DOS, whilst the MSX platform (which had many eroge games in the 1980s) was nearing the end of its lifetime by now.
Eroge was much less common on consoles - only NEC's PC Engine series had officially licensed adult games, and from the mid-90s, Sega's Saturn.
There is no set definition for the gameplay of eroge, except that they all include explicit sexual content.
This most often occurs as hentai scenes of the player character having a sexual encounter with other characters.
Many eroge become more story-oriented than sex-oriented, making story as the main focus for many modern eroge.
More and more people who used to reject such type of games began to become more open-minded that it isn't just about sex anymore.
According to Satoshi Todome's A History of Eroge, Kanon is still the standard for modern eroge and is referred to as a "baptism" for young otaku in Japan.
Although many eroge still market themselves primarily on sex, eroge that focus on story are now a major established part of Japanese otaku culture.
