Palette Parade, a game that has gained some following on the Internet thanks to its odd concept, has been delayed a year.
The announcement went up on the Japanese site for the game a few days ago and a translated and adapted version went up on the English fan-run Twitter shortly afterwards. The game was originally intended to be released over summer 2018, but the development team wanted to improve the functionality and “the quality of the game” before its release. The basic version: they want to avoid those day one patches, thank goodness.
The news announcement also mentioned that advance registration for the game is still open, and the team is still open to receiving opinions and inquiries on the game so far.
As for the game so far? If you didn’t notice its niche following on sites such as Tumblr, Palette Parade is a dating sim with a twist. The twist is that your bachelor pool is made up of anime-style takes on famous artists, such as Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Katsushika Hokusai, El Greco, and many more.
The only hint for the new release date we have now is the general date of 2019. The game will be available on Android and iOS, possibly also on PC.
