College Terra Story (found PC visual novel dating game; 1998)
College Terra Story is a PC dating simulator released only in Japan in 1998. It is a direct sequel to the Sega Saturn/PC game High School Terra Story.
Little information about this game exists. The only synopsis that could be found is from the Visual Novel Database (VNDB) website:
"The story picks up off where High School Terra Story ended. You are, again, Keisuke from the first game and you are now attending college. Keisuke is intrigued with a pop idol rock star named Hiromi, who also happens to attend the same university as he does. The six girls from the first game (Misa, Rina, Mimi, Aki, Chiho, and Mao) are also back and you can continue their love stories from where they left off from the first game if you choose to do so."
Copies of College Terra Story never seem to surface anywhere. An image of an alleged copy of the game has surfaced online, however, the artwork on the box is different than the regular cover artwork for the game, making people considering it a hoax.
A review for the game was found on a website called "densetsu.com", along with some of the game's music and cover art. An hour of gameplay footage was also found on YouTube. At one point, on eBay, the strategy guide was being sold.
Due to the game's rarity, a ROM for the game could not be found online. However, on August 19th, 2018, a Tistory user named 두기 (DooGie) uploaded the full game on a blog post, finally making the game available to the general public.
