Default Tomoyo After ~It's a Wonderful Life~

<center>

<a href="http://key.visualarts.gr.jp/newsoft/index.htm">Tomoyo After
~It's a Wonderful Life~</a>

<span title="Let us go searching for those treasured things in life">「人生の宝物を探しにいこう━━」</a>

</center>


Details
- Release date: 2005
- Designation: 18+
- No word on whether it'll have voice, though given that this is Key, probably not.

Production
- Contrary to speculation, Key hasn't picked up either Goto-P or CO2A.
- The art will be done by Fumio, best known for his work on Sorauta and the new Pia Carrot game.
- Scenario-wise, it'll be Maeda Jun (who wrote the original Tomoyo scenario) and Kashida Leo, a new name.
- As usual, music will be handled by Orito Shinji, Togoshi Magome and Maeda Jun.

Plot
Loosely speaking, the story revolves around Tomoya and Tomoyo's life in the summer vacation after the events in Clannad, together with her half-sister, brother, and his ex-girlfriend.

Thoughts
It's got Maeda's favourite 'family' theme written all over it, but I don't think we'll be seeing anything along the lines of the stories in Clannad. It seems this really will be little more than a fan disc.

Art looks pretty good; Sorauta was highly regarded, too. Shame it's not Itaru, but there you go. (Whatever happened to her, anyway?)

They're apparently marketing it as an ADV rather than a fandisk, so hopefully there'll be something reasonably meaty in there, even if not on the grand Clannadic scale. Unless there are really enough fans out there who'd fork over 5,800 yen just to look at official Tomoyo porn... O_o;;

Looks very nice.
I like Fumio's Tomoyo's look more than the original one. Good thing that she doesn't look like under-age gal.

So Tomoyo is the main character just like what the rumor/news said.

I hope Key's H-scene scripts has been improved...

Wait, she's the main character, but it's 18+? So are the H-scenes from her perspective? That'll be... new >_>;

am all for H, bring it on... although.... what month?! and yes, she does look more mature now (hopes that the other girls are involved in the H scens as wall.... excipt for Tomo).

hey, seems that key is realy going to go for 800x600 graphics in their new titles... am for one glad for that :). And seeing the system requirment... me think the game might including some animations (not actualy anime, but more like moving images... in a nice way).

... me hope for another game... this time for the twins :).

Central character, not protagonist. That's Tomoya again, like in Clannad (this follows on from Tomoyo's scenario, not the "true ending").

Relegated to drawing box art, it seems.

いたるちん、かわいそう…

Well, if you've decided to purchase an 18+ game anyway, you could certainly do worse than one featuring Clannad's foremost エロイン =P

They've certainly got the technology. The question is just whether they'd actually be bothered...
Speaking of which, I see there's no mention of those RPG elements we were promised.

I'd prefer for them to begin working on their next major title, but going by the staff diary, it doesn't seem like Maeda really knows where Key is headed. Let's hope this isn't the beginning of the end for the industry's most prolific studio.

The ともともコンビ was bad enough, but you've really got to start questioning Maeda's naming sense when he adds another character called 'Tomo'...

At least he hasn't introduced トモ坂トモ夫 yet...
