IC-Title

IC (stylized as ic [ai si!]) is an unproduced erotic simulation game developed by Alice Crimson. Advertising itself as a romance simulation with an emphasis on communication, it was to feature a dynamic dating system in which the player's relationships with the game's six heroines would change radically based on their interactions with them.

Intended to be Alice Crimson's debut title, IC was first announced in June of 2002 and given a projected release date of fall of that year. While it was promoted semi-regularly in the Alicesoft User Club newsletter in the months following its announcement, all references to it were dropped after the October issue and the year ended with no further information on its status. Though the game was never officially canceled, the closure of Alice Crimson in 2004 effectively confirmed that it would not be completed. The reasons behind the title's delay and eventual cancellation have never been publicly stated.

Synopsis[]

On July 1st, we met for the first time and started dating.

I was a student at a private university in Tokyo, she was a student at St. Michael's School for Girls.

Our summer together had only just begun...

Introduction (from the Alicesoft User Club June 2002 Newsletter)[]

IC-Group-Shot

IC is a communication-based relationship simulation game. Using your cellphone and email, you must set up a date with a girl and develop a relationship. Whether your relationship ends in romance, friendship, or less than even that depends entirely on how you respond to her. The choices you make will impact both her reactions and the nature of your relationship; from a passionate love-affair to a quiet romance. Be sure to pay close attention to her personality, hobbies, and daily routines to build a happy future together.

Gameplay (from the Alicesoft User Club September 2002 Newsletter)[]

IC is a communication-based relationship simulation game. "Relationship Simulation" means shaping the relationship between the heroine and protagonist. If the relationship between the two deepens, more intimate events will occur. If the relationship between the two worsens, it will deteriorate from a romance to a friendship, or even break apart entirely. The best way to improve a relationship is to have conversations and get to know each other better.

The heroine candidates are all girls attending St. Michael's School for Girls in Tokyo's Midori Ward. The game begins when you select one of the heroines as your girlfriend and begin dating her. During conversations, the heroine's facial expressions will change in a variety of ways that indicate her feelings.

Setting (from the Alicesoft User Club October 2002 Newsletter)[]

IC-St-Michaels

St. Michael's School for Girls is a prestigious missionary school for young ladies that was founded about 100 years ago and offers an integrated educational system ranging from kindergarten to postgraduate studies.

The school is located on a small hill in a residential area, a ten minute walk from Shiran Station in Tokyo's Midori Ward. Contrary to the classical appearance of the building, its learning facilities are state-of-the-art.

The recently-renovated cathedral, with stained glass windows depicting the Archangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Gabriel(sic) atop it, is a must-see for visitors.
