This is an advanced AI simulation that can interact and respond to many of your actions in a dynamic way through inverse kinematics, complex behaviors, and currently over 200 animations.  In short, this is a tamagochi on steroids. v0.5 just came out 6/22/19 and includes a customizable clothing system that allows one create and share cards online.

Im having a hard time trying to run the game, no matter what i do it just opens the files but not runs the game. So even though it may sound dumb to you how to you get the game to run? thank you

are you using occulus or vive?

i have been on this page everyday waiting for the update i make games as well and have been highly interested in this project and was wondering if we can have an eta on the next update or if we could talk about further development you can email me at kingofromen2@gmail.com

Sorry if I'm kinda new to this whole scene of non-steam vr games. What program do you use to run this game properly?

its a standalone game you dont need anything.

If you are using an Oculus, all you need is to have is the Oculus software, then open the game. If you have a Non-Oculus headset (Vive, Index, etc..), you need to open steamvr, and then open the game.

Can you play this sitting down?

Eehhh kinda.

are you planing other girl models?  it would be so cool :D

no but maybe character customization.

0oh god! that costumization is so cool! thank you for all the work done! :)

but i have one more question:  will this game be released in steam?

ps: hello from russia, and sorry for my bad english.

i use a translator ;)

Hi SgtHale, I am making a short video documentary about waifus and the future of moe and I was wondering if we could put a short clip from your marriage to Oshino Shinobu in the video? Sorrrry I am new to itch but did not know how else to contact you! If there's a better way to contact you I can give you more details if you like! Thank you!!

Lol sure why not.

Yay thank you! Is there a way I can email you?

Mine us public already. Panainodev@gmail.com

how do i download this step by step?

There's a button right there to download it. It's a free game so just click "No thanks just take me to the download'

I literally just ordered a Rift S and then found out about this. What luck.
With that said, will there be Rift S support?

Pretty sure Rift S support is backwards compatible.

wish i had a vr :(

can we do sexual stuff or is this planned?

No sorry lol but there will be bathing. She is censored with minimal bubbles.


dont lewd the loli :(

Hello, i have an a problem. When i press shift and i have an object, the object doesnt fall

The only solution that i have is giving it to shinobu and make her angry.

Thanks for reading

Hey. To drop an object, you hold Shift and then either mouse right/left to drop it. It's not just the shift key.

Thank you!, worked but also i found a bug.

when you do a photo and save the game, then open it again and shinobu find the photo, she breaks it and turns mad. (it doesnt matter if the photo is about the floor or the wall, ect)

I have been following this project for at least 3 weeks now, and I'm excited to see this completed. I have played the demos both using keyboard and mouse and using the Vive.

It's either the player is too short or Shinobu is too tall. I'm pretty short at 158cm, but I know I'm not shorter than her loli form. Also, her skirt glitches after moving a lot. Restricting its sway might be a fix. As for interactions, it would be nice if she had an attention span so she won't be amazed at her picture the whole time. Waving using the Vive isn't working, but I'm guessing it's not yet implemented.

Overall, this is stable and well-done. Keep it up!

Thanks. Are you saying you are short in VR mode? Her skirt is pretty glitchy indeed but it resets if you look away. Attention span is in the works I totally agree. Waving does work but for right hand only. It's also not a big wave. It's a short shake.

Yeah I was too short while in VR mode. The play area I have set is the minimum at around 2m x 1.5m.

There are a few problems that I have right off the bat when I started the game, and I think these are things that could be easily solved so I'm in no particular concern (these are with Oculus Touch controls in mind):

  • When playing in VR, you cannot interact with the options menu at all.
  • There are wholly no options to mess around with. There's no Snap or Smooth turning. There is no Head or Hand prioritized movement. This is an issue because if I move up, the movement is locked on that axis until I stop moving.
  • The player character moves too slow, and sprinting requires holding down the Analog Stick. There is no option to change to a Toggle feature.

Aside from those, the Shinobu AI is probably some of the best I've seen in any VR game, hands down. I love the way she interacts with you and how she will dislike something if you do it too much (Ex. Headpatting her, she'll enjoy but after a while she'll jerk back.)

The music choice is nice and peaceful, very summery, especially considering the setting of the game which leads me to my next point:

The map is beautiful to look at, even though it's small. It's a nice experience that isn't too claustrophobic, and really roomy. Really sets the Mexican vibe with the cacti though, that's a nice little touch there.

All in all, I really enjoy the game, and I absolutely look forward to your updates! There's a lot of potential with the AI here, and I love the experiences of playing around with a virtual buddy.


Thanks for the feedback! The problem is that it was designed only for Vive as it's the only headset that I have. However there is support for Oculus it's just that the control scheme is a bit clunky from lack of being able to test it at the same time. You can rotate camera and navigate the menu by PRESSING the thumbstick while holding it in the direction you wish to go (left and right with either right/left control for rotation) (up or down for menu navigation). What do you mean head or hand prioritize movement? As in when you hold forward your head cannot change the direction of it? That was an intended behavior but I can probably add a setting to change it later. I agree with the thumbstick to run. Will add a setting later. Thanks again I'm going to add a read me to the project download to address these unknowns for now until I patch it.

Quite the motivator to get a pc that can run vr, along with getting a vr set to play this~

Damn, how did this fly under my radar? Anyways, great stuff. Glad to see fellow Shinobu lovers out here.

While I can't play in VR for the proper experience, I do like the idea you have going on with the interactive AI character. Plus, it's adorable, and that's always a plus for games like this.

*Looks under skirt* FBI OPEN UP

Well done tho. (I was thinking can you play this without vr.)

Yeah there is keyboard+mouse support but it wouldn't be the same experience.

I'm not into these types of games, but I have to say the character animations in this are way better than in most AAA-games funded by big studios.

Oh fuck


This is the most advanced loli simulator on itch.io

Lol thanks.
