Yuri Visual Novel SeaBed Now Available


December 19, 2017 - The wait is over: Fruitbat Factory is proud to confirm that SeaBed is now available on Steam! The charming visual novel by Paleontology features yuri themes in a psychological mystery package. SeaBed was released in Japan in 2016 and quickly drew the attention of visual novel enthusiasts in both Japan and abroad.

The Steam release has English and Japanese language options and its graphics have been upgraded to 1440x1080 resolution, with support for multiple resolutions.

SeaBed is rated Teen by ESRB for Sexual Content, Partial Nudity and Use of Alcohol.


SeaBed is a critically acclaimed yuri-themed mystery visual novel told through the perspectives of three separate characters: Mizuno Sachiko, a designer plagued by hallucinations of her past lover; Narasaki Hibiki, Sachiko's friend and a psychiatrist researching the workings of human memories; and Takako, Sachiko's former lover who has been rapidly forgetting her past, including how or why the two women drifted apart despite being together since childhood.

All three live in different worlds, but seek the same goal. To separate truth from illusion. To make sense of their own lives.

The Steam version of SeaBed includes Achievements, Cloud support and Steam Trading Cards.

High resolution screenshots are available on the game’s homepage and Steam page. A gameplay trailer for the game can also be seen on the Fruitbat Factory YouTube channel.

There is also a free demo available from the Steam page that features roughly the first hour of gameplay from the visual novel and focuses on two of the main characters: Sachiko and Takako.

SeaBed is now available for purchase for $19.99, with a -10% discount for the release week. For more information, business enquiries and to be included in the press release and review mailing lists, contact Fruitbat Factory at info@fruitbatfactory.com .
