Here’s an overview of the game, via WSS Playground:
Needy streamer overload is an “adventure with multiple endings” 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). 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 – Although she looks a bit reserved and quiet, she is 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 Angel!
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 under your guidance and direction, she can amass ever more devoted listeners/obsessed fans, making her a super popular streamer – thus allowing you to rake in silly sums of money from her fundraising otaku followers .
It’s not just about streaming – sometimes you just need 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.
