Psychological Horror Visual Novel ‘Needy Streamer Overload’ Announces October 2022 Nintendo Switch Port; Trailer

During today’s Indie Live Expo stream, the management simulator, Needy Streamer Overload by developer xemono and publisher WSS playground, was announced to be receiving a Nintendo Switch port. This version of the title will be launching digitally on October 27, 2022. In addition, Japan will be receiving a limited physical release, including an art book and soundtrack CD.

Needy Streamer Overdose has players assume the role of P-chan, acting as both lover and producer for online streaming idol Ame-chan. Ame-chan happens to be a hot mess and begs for your approval to the point where she’ll take your advice to advance her online idol career. She’s cute, she’s selfish, and she’s a little bit messed up… and it’s up to you to turn her into a top-tier streamer.

Gameplay has players take on the task of fostering a young girl with an unhealthy need for attention from you. If that wasn’t bad enough, she also has an obsession with the internet. Players will get to know Ame-chan and her alter-ego OMGkawaiiAngel-chan, who she becomes while streaming.

You’ll need to guide her to get more followers and comments until she becomes the most popular girl online. Of course, this all takes place over a computer screen and through chat; it’s also really unhealthy in real life, but this is a video game, so it’s cool, and we aren’t judging.

  • The title is now available on PC via Steam, which has sold over 450,000 units worldwide.
