I asked him to tell us a little bit about it. Here’s Josh’s response:
…I started the group early this year specifically dedicated to making yuri games, and particularly yuri games for girls. I’m still proud of Highway Blossoms, but I decided I wanted to do more in that vein. Alienworks, the group with which we made HB, is still alive and I’m still part of it, but Studio Élan is like… my main thing for the foreseeable future. Most of the team are girls, and so far I’m really excited about what we’re doing in a way that I’ve never really been before. We have two projects right now, both of which will be announced at Anime Weekend Atlanta in September. I hope that people will like them.
The folks at Studio Élan are tweeting backgrounds, character designs and screenshots like crazy now, with credits to the folks who are working on the art for the VNs (a touch I quite like.) The first two game announcements are slated for September, but check their Twitter account regularly for teasers! In the meantime, we’ll wait with bated breath for the first releases!
