Popular visual novel/management sim Needy Streamer Overload gets a switch port. The game has been on Steam since January and has sold over 450,000 copies in around five months. Now you can build and manage your own internet sensation on the Switch.
In a premise unique to the genre, your goal as P-Chan is to help internet star Ame gain 1 million subscribers in just 31 days — not once we have done that! But it’s not all sweet and saccharine as you must battle internet trolls and critics and help Ame have fun outside of her internet idol persona. That sounds a little to realistic.
NEEDY STREAMER OVERLOAD is a multi-ending ADV depicting daily life with “OMGkawaiiAngel-chan”, a young girl with a rather extreme need for approval who is trying to become the #1 Internet Angel (streamer). will. Gradually build up OMGkawaiiAngel-chan’s number of followers as she spends her days streaming, taking various medications and just being kind of a mess in general. Experience all the different crazy ups and downs and find out for yourself if this story can even have a happy ending.
Transform “Ame-chan” – something of a hot mess of a girl – into an OMGWTF cute internet angel and launch her career as a live streamer for the toughest otaku online!
– Ame-chan: While she looks a little reserved and quiet, she’s actually a ridiculously selfish and shallow girl with a tendency to get carried away and a desperate need for approval. She’s, well… kind of a garbage person. Likes: Your SO/Producer “P-chan”; psychotropic drugs.
-OMGkawaiiAngel-chan: An “Internet Angel”. Ame-chan’s alter ego used in streaming. Pretends to be really nice and sweet. Constantly flirts with otaku guys.
Living with internet angels!
As Ame-chan’s beloved (???) “P-chan”, offer daily commentary and guidance to make her a top-notch streamer. She’ll get few comments and even fewer followers at first, but with your guidance and direction, she can amass ever more devoted listeners/obsessed fans, making her a super popular streamer – and thus allowing you to rake in silly amounts of money from her fundraising otaku followers .
It’s not just about streaming – sometimes you just need to take a little break! Take Ame-chan on dates, serve her a bit of naughtiness every now and then, provide her with a little something – something to take the edge off when she needs to release pent-up stress, and use online dating apps to broadcast her on dates with other guys to keep her happy and sane. *NOTE: This is actually a perfectly sane game that contains absolutely no explicit sexual references or expressions or illegal substances.
You can see the results of your daily actions and behavior through social media, where Ame-chan uses both public and private accounts to talk about you. People tend to act supportive and friendly on the outside, while in private they gossip a lot and spread rumours.
You will sometimes get lengthy, boring criticism and insults, but that’s normal when you’re dealing with a cute girl streaming on the internet. Be sure to take proper care of them.
The game features multiple endings, and your streamer will go weird and emo for a variety of reasons, harming their faithful P-Chan, and generally messing up their heads. Start your adventure and see for yourself if a happy ending is really possible for a cute but disturbed girl on the modern internet.
“Multiple Wild Ends” is also pretty daunting considering the trials and tribulations you’ll likely have to go through to maintain Ames’ internet personality and happiness. It’s a cruel world out there online sometimes.
Needy Streamer Overload is coming to Switch on October 27th, so study internet idols so you can prepare to make Ame the best and happiest she can be. And be sure to let us know in the comments if you’re interested in this visual management novella!
