The first post is always the hardest.
We should probably start by telling you who we are, right? We’re Rice Digital, or ‘Rice’ for short. We’re a brand new site dedicated to games we like – and games we hope you’ll come to like too!
For years we’ve been playing and enjoying Japanese Indie games – or ‘Doujin Games’ – if you prefer. There are so many great titles out there, but the problem is, nobody really knows about them. So we decided that it was about time we shared some of those games with you.
So that’s mission number one for us. To fill you in on what’s out there, where to get it and perhaps most importantly what’s worth playing!
Ultimately though, we like pretty much all Japanese games – and while we particularly like to seek out those underdogs and indie treats, you can expect us to talk just as much about bigger Japanese titles, as well as everything else that interests us – from cosplay to anime and Japanese culture.
We hope, that if you have similar tastes to us (and we know there are lots of you!) that you will find Rice to be an enjoyable place to hang out.
We will also be selling some of our favourite doujin games via our store. There are so many great titles out there, but they can be tricky to purchase if you don’t have a working knowledge of Japanese – and the process of finding good doujin games can sometimes be quite daunting! Our store, which will only feature games that we genuinely like, will help make this process of discovery much easier for you!
So enjoy! And in the mean time, if you have any games you want to share, hot tips you’ve discovered, or simply want to get in touch and say hello, please do – we’d love to hear from you.
