Through fan outcry, borderline illegal anime 'shooter' Gal*Gun: Double Peace finally shed its console shackles and took up the throne atop Steam's best selling list after just one day.
With even the publisher's Head of Marketing taking to Twitter to express his shock at the events, following the success other risque anime games have received on Steam over the years - like Sakura Spirit and Hunie Pop - largely in thanks to comedy Let's Play channels on YouTube, it doesn't really come as much of a surprise when you consider the context of the game.
The on-rails bishoujo shooter first saw release on last-gen consoles in Japan yet never saw a Western release likely due to publishers being uninterested in handling a title focused on blasting schoolgirls with a 'pheromone shot' while trying to win over the love of another girl.
Though it didn't stop the surge of 'ecchi' games making waves through the indie publishing revolution. Banking on the increased popularity, PQube took up the responsibility of bringing select Japanese titles to the West - evidently with great success.
We don't have a review for this one, but there's sure to be plenty of YouTube coverage soon. Wnat it for yourself? Check out the best-seller's Steam page.
