Panty Explosion back in print soon… with a new name!
September 25, 2013
Panty Explosion Perfect will soon be back in print for the first time since late 2012. We’re also doing something new. We’ll be printing a second run of books (and issuing a PDF) with the EXACT SAME CONTENT as Panty Explosion Perfect, but a different title.
Why? While a lot of people enjoy PEP as it is, over the years lots of other people have complained about the name of our game. So now we’ve decided to make the same game available under a different name. With this barrier removed, everyone can have the version of our game that they prefer.
So we’re going to have this contest. From now until October 8th, 2013 we’re asking fans to suggest new names for Panty Explosion Perfect. Matt and I will pick our favorite and use it as the title for the new book!
What can I win? Besides getting to choose the title for the new book, your name will also appear in the book’s credit page. We’ll send you a signed copy of the book, as well as an original illustration featuring the school girl characters from the game!
How do I enter? Just post a comment including your suggested name here. If more than one person suggests the same name the honor will go to whoever suggested it first!
Will there still be a game called Panty Explosion Perfect? Yes! Panty Explosion Perfect will remain in print. This new version of the game will exist side by side with it and will be identical except for the name.
Why change the name now? Matt and I have resisted the idea of a name change in the past. Both of us like the name Panty Explosion and feel it suits the game well. It also bothered us that so many people felt that no one would play the game without a name change, or that a name change was needed if we ever wanted to sell any copies of the game at all. But after 7 years, with thousands of copies of Panty Explosion sold all over the world and the game translated into multiple languages Matt and I just don’t feel like we have anything else to prove. Over the years hundreds of people have told us that they’d never play our game because of the name, but if we changed the name they’d buy it in a minute. So we’re listening to those people, and now that last barrier is about to be removed. We’re hoping a whole new group of gamers can finally enjoy our psychic school girl game!
