In addition, they’ve announced the release date of Tenioha! feat. Mami by developer rootnuko+H. This dark romance visual novel, with a focus on power-centric scenarios with a ‘slightly older, dommy-mommy coworker‘ will be launched on 30th October, 2023 on Steam and Johren.

Not long ago, I entered the corporate world, brimming with hope and ambition. After a nightmarish first twelve months, however, that all seems like a distant dream. I long for simpler times when my boss’s constant put-downs didn’t ruin my evening commute home. If anything, the bachelor’s life I so looked forward to mirrors my own desperate state of mind, as I dig into another greasy supermarket bento in my apartment alone, next to a sink piled with dirty dishes… A sweet, familiar face flashes through my mind, but I swiftly dismiss it with a shake of my head. “What is wrong with me?! She’s literally my coworker…” Sure, there’s this one girl—the cute and confident Mami Himekawa. She’s got the looks, the laugh, the walk, and that voice, but I highly doubt that we’re compatible that way. Or am I missing something? But just when I least expect it, the answer to that question reveals itself while I’m at work in the office one day—“Hey there, kiddo. You got a moment?”
