Looking for compelling stories coupled with great sexy action? We are BeerBrew and Sharkie of Studio Paper Waifu, and thanks for trying out our game, Ramen no Oujisama (or The Ramen Prince)!

This is a H-visual novel that chronicles the loves and tribulations of a young man who, thanks to a generous benefactor, is starting fresh in a new city and opening a new ramen restaurant. Along the way, he meets an eclectic cast of characters, and eventually must learn to juggle business with pleasure. Can he get the girl of his dreams?

GAME FEATURES:

- 10 planned playable waifu routes with their own unique personalities, stories, kinks, dynamism and interaction with you, the MC.
- 9 character routes currently available!
- 40+ Animated special scenes that are semi-interactive
- *Omake scenarios that expand on the stories in the form of short kinky skits, short stories, side stories, and maybe something right out our main character's dreams
- *Secret Codes to enhance the gameplay experience
- Available in multiple platforms (Windows, MacOSX, Linux, and Android)
- Great music!
- In active development!



LATEST UPDATE NOTES:
We're happy to announce that we have concluded the 9th character route! In this update, we've also advanced the Chinese translation of the Intro area, still incomplete though, but will be update when all the character routes are completed!

Could you give a list of fetishes, or potential fetishes, that will be in the game?

Kinda serious bug squashed! Game @ Patreon page and NewGrounds has been updated to v0.20 2016-09-28! Now it's much easier to open up Ninja girl's route!

Could you give a list of fetishes, or potential fetishes, that will be in the game?

Ah! A very good point! You know what, let me get back to you on that one ;D

This will partly depend on our Patron's suggestions. Though right now, what's suggested that we're looking into are: Light bondage/Dom-Sub, Anal, and paizuri. We're looking into giving each character their own kinks! This is also where our future feature - the omake scenes - will come into play where we get to add things like mini stories and short but naughty events into the game.

Hi guys,


We updated the downloadable version's game packager. Hopefully this fixes a rare crash bug for some Win10 users?


We also provided new builds for you guys to try and test out:

  • 64-Bit Windows
  • MacOSX (Test needed)
  • Linux (Test needed)

We don't have MacOSX and Linux test machines so this is untested. If you some of you guys can give it a test run, please let us know how it goes!

Maybe I shouldn't touch such visual porn novels again. That's the second time I touched light hearted an smut game, just to be over run with feelings. Why are people doing that to me? Not such emotionally roller coastergames, please!. Q_Q

Besides that the story of Sango is way to sad for me. It's an great game, even it's an bit slow while playing it in Crome and I miss more to do myself. The part how lovely the game is, makes the whole thing with the feelings just worse.

Time for the next play trough.

Edit. Is the blowjob scene from Mie made with SuperDeepThroat?

Hey Musicfruit! Awesome! Our magic worked on you, haha! Don't worry, Ramen no Oujisama isn't a VN that's all about making your heart ache. It's like entering a themepark rather than riding just a single rollercoaster. Each character we bring into the game has different kinks and different personalities, so this should vary the game experience! We'll be coming out with in a update maybe at the end of the month. We made sure the waifus are even hotter, sexier waifus now. Do look out for the next update especially if you're into the dominatrix thing ;).

@SuperDeepThroat? Nope, but glad to hear you enjoyed it enough to make such a comparison, haha! This was done using the old animation feature of the game. We're in the process of also upgrading Sango's sex scenes so do look out for those hopefully by the next update.

And by the way, if we didn't mention it before, there are 3 endings per character route. So try to find those! Please follow us in twitter, or this thread if you want to keep updated with our stuff ;).

EVERYONE THIS IS IMPORTANT! IT'S ABOUT YOUR WAIFUS!

Hey guys,

BeerBrew again. Just wanted to share what our waifus in Ramen no Oujisama will look like in the upcoming update! We've been busy plowing through a number of things: the rest of the 3rd character route, upgrading the artworks of existing characters to match those done later, updating Sango's naughty naughty scenes to match the current animations we've got, to name a few. It's quite an endeavor, so I hope y'all get to enjoy this ride with us. Please look out for the upcoming update!

I'm still shacked from Sangos route! :negativeman:

Nice to see an update here. They look even cuter now. I assume there won't be an Harem ending or at least an 'I helped them all' ending?
Did you thought about adding some codes that would change something 'little' as Patreon rewards? I think Mie would be damn cute with cat ears.

I also tried your other game, looks promising, but the whole fighting part could use a lot of work. Damn encounter rate.

Hey Musicfruit!

Aw don't be too sad now! The next update will be pretty good for her route! ;)) Her special scenes will be quite fappable to!

@Harem ending - Who knows? That's what the Omake Scenarios are for! Haha! For all we know, our poor protagonist could be whisked by succubi, drained of his "energy", before sending him back home!

But for now, adding those and such cheats in might be months off seeing as we're still in in the middle of putting together the 3rd character route.

@Godhood - Ah yes yes hehe! Still very early game. We'll take your feedback on the encounter rate. Is it too much or too little? And how'd you like the idea of being a (Sex) God of sorts?

Too much encounter, it's annoying to go somewhere and even more if you want to go back to the city. The idea to be an god can be really awesome, if you make it important. That could be the key to make it something unique. :)

Yes, yes, very much YES, this game is worth money. I started it up out of curiosity and I have to say that I do not regret it in any way. The characters are lively and engaging, the stories for each wooable lady unique and well thought out, showing a great deal of insight especially Tomone's route. Plus, the dialogue is witty and well written, often having little gems hidden here and there throughout the conversations, making you not want to skip if you can avoid it.

Great game, I'm going to Patreon now.

Hey bro! Real glad to see you thoroughly enjoyed yourself with our game! Thank you for the support and for sharing your thoughts on it! I'll tell Sharkie about your delight ;)

Good thing it started up for you no problem as we just patched up the online versions to fix a small "bug" that didn't load up some of the images.

Hey guys,

Just another update. We're in the middle of animating scenes for the upcoming latter half of the third character route. So we ask for your patience on this since doing 4 of them with a ton of variations is... quite a challenge to do every month D:

Here's an update on our game tho:

A concept for an upcoming character. Sharkie says she's a "villain", and if this got your curiosity, you'll just have to watch out for our game updates!

I think I actually encountered that issue with Mei's route when she's kneeling before you, the scene in the empty mansion doesn't show anything until you're behind her and vigorously...well you know, railing her :p

Hmm.. What background scene did you see when this happened? The mansion, bedroom, or the bed (that special event scene)?

Hey everyone!

BeerBrew here! I think it's about time to update the Prince of Ramen demo over at NewGrounds with the new v0.3.0 ALPHA build. Understandably, our rating is stuck at 3.46, which is what was given by NG user's judgement when we put out our game demo at v0.05. So we'll put the current version of the game and have it judged again, hopefully this time we can garner much better ratings given what we put into this in the last 6 months ;).

If I may humbly ask our fans and supporters to drop by the new NG game link and give it a judgement score and updated review, when it's up, we'd be very happy!

We'll post an update about this and the NewGrounds link later.

We'll also be posting up about a new Android build as well, and we'll also be updating the current downloadables for our patrons as well.

Hey guys!

We're glad to announce that v0.3.0 is finally available in GameJolt and NewGrounds. We've updated the desktop and Android versions in GJ and in our Patreon page, so please do give those a go if the online version is giving you problems ;).

A note about the online version: Black boxes - sometimes you might see characters turning into black boxes or that the the game "hanged". We've been experiencing some strangeness with WebGL recently, and we think it might be connected with the recent/latest version of Chrome as we haven't had this problem a month or two ago. So if you encounter this, a simple browser page refresh should fix it, or if you're able to, just load up a new game or a save game.

There are several new bits about this version. For one, 3 character routes are now fully playable! We've also added two Secret Codes ;). Players can now save (almost) anytime, anywhere, and we've sped up the fast forward button, too! We've also done fixes on artwork, dialog, and code. There are now 15 animated scenes in total!

Last but not the least, we'd like to mention that we've got a new game link over at NewGrounds as we think it's time for an updated rating from the judgement system over there.

NEWGROUNDS GAME LINK (UNDER JUDGEMENT):
http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/676178

Our rating's stuck at 3.46 before (got that since we released v0.0.5), so hopefully our updates in the past 6 months will get noticed and we can get more stars this time. May we kindly ask our fans and supporters to drop by there, drop a thoughtful review and a rating? Aside from being an awesome thing to do, we'd quite appreciate the gesture!

Once again, the game's different versions can be downloaded at GameJolt (and played online):

And can be played online at NewGrounds:

You don't need to know!

Personally I'm not truly a fan of VN or at least pure VN, however i gave this game a try and i hope that it helps even a bit what i say:

-First of all what i thought that the game would be about and the reality are the opposite. When i read about this game and starting playing i thought it would have much more freedom and less lineality. I truly hoped something like "managing the ramen shop, earning income, updating it and dealing with multiple events at the same time that i find a girlfriend".

-Second is that it feels quite a standard VN, I truly would have liked if that was different. When i started the game i thought it would be more on the line "Our MC is so focused on food that the girls will have quite a few problems to get his attention". In fact i think that if the girls were the ones to initiate the events with him and you being the conquerable character for them it would have been much better. This would be quite a reverse VN right? XD.

-Third, i think that perhaps it is planned, however will there be a better use to that "choosing location" section?, i quite liked that i could navigate to those places but i lost it quite soon.

-Fourth, it would have been better to have a bigger period of time without entering a girl route. I just got the feeling that it was too fast.

-Fifth, this is quite usual but most VN just forget about the characters that are not involved in the route. One thing that i hate about VNs is when they give a lot of drama to a route because when you aren't in that one i feel bad for the girl, because i would truly like to know that they got a happy ending or at least know what happened to them.

There are quite a few things more but... i think this is enough of an opinnion. I will say first that i focused a lot saying what i thought would be different and bad points. However at the same time the game has good art and writing that i did not talk about.

Hope it helps.

Hey Asestado,

Thanks for giving the game a try and glad you enjoyed it enough! Haha! We'll take note of what you've said :)

It's still quite an alpha game, and yes the location will be put to better use as we open up more character routes in the game.

Hmm... let's just say, the game is formatted based on a number of factors that determines what we think we can optimally deliver. We can put out a game that's more complex and requires more assets, but that's not exactly a good thing - we might not finish the game lol.
