Reef Entertainment will work as an operative team providing support for future Bitmap Bureau titles. Based in Southampton, Bitmap Bureau was founded in 2016 by industry veterans Matthew Cope and Mike Tucker. Over the years, Bitmap Bureau have been on a mission to deliver high-quality titles capable of running natively on retro consoles and modern consoles alike, with popular releases such as Xeno Crisis, Battle Axe and Final Vendetta. Their talented team of designers, programmers, artists and musicians are dedicated to preserving and continuing the fine art of retro game development, with a commitment to authenticity that spans from the painstaking coding process all the way to the physical packaging. “Working as part of the Reef Creative Group gives us access to the funding, administration and publishing support we need to expand, study and concentrate on making the best retro titles out there for gamers everywhere. Our combined knowledge and expertise will allow us to make higher-quality games and retro physical collections than ever before. Stay tuned for the exciting projects we’re working on…we’ll be back with more news soon!” - Matt Cope, Technical Director, Bitmap Bureau Reef Entertainment and Bitmap Bureau have developed an amazing chemistry working together for almost 2 years and have recognised that their range of skills will complement each other in a more formal partnership within the Reef Creative Group. Bitmap Bureau are already developing two new titles with Reef Entertainment to be announced soon. “Reef are currently deep into development on some unannounced projects with Bitmap Bureau and through working on these together, we’ve developed a wonderful partnership founded on shared values. We are delighted to have them as part of our group and look forward to this collaboration continuing to flourish in the near future.” - Gareth Dain, Group Managing Director, Reef Creative Group

  • Sympathy Kiss Tulip Necklace designed by Reef Entertainment!

    Sympathy Kiss, developed by our partner Idea Factory International, recently launched on Nintendo Switch™! A special Necklace Edition is available for fans to purchase on our direct-to-consumer website and select retailers throughout Europe, bundling the game with several merch items, including a beautiful Tulip Necklace, designed by Reef Entertainment’s wonderful designer, Menglin! Sympathy Kiss is a slice-of-life otome that follows Akari, an employee of the mobile app maker Estario, as she tries to find the perfect balance between the stress of work and blooming office romance. The elegant tulip that adorns the necklace is a recurring motif in the game’s logo and marketing, a symbol of perfect and deep love. The Tulip Necklace is Reef Entertainment’s second experience creating commercial merchandise, and we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. Through our partnership with Idea Factory International, we have distributed many otome games to fans in Europe and are so proud to be able to provide the ever-growing otome fanbase with bespoke merchandise for their favourite games. To all the otome fans out there: we hope this necklace adds some dazzle to your days at the office and keeps you shining every shift!

  • Incredible reviews for our 2023 line-up!

    2023 has proven to be an excellent year for gaming, and Reef Entertainment are very proud of the amazing titles we have worked on this year with our valued partners. In particular, we are very pleased to see the incredible critical reception to the following titles: Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless, The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails, Rhapsody: Marl Kingdom Chronicles, Jack Jeanne, Radiant Tale, and Virche Evermore -ErroR: Salvation-. Check out what the critics had to say about these games below! Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless is the latest entry in the beloved Disgaea series, developed by NIS America and distributed throughout the UK and a variety of regions in Europe by Reef Entertainment. This SRPG tells the story of unlikely allies Fuji and Pirilika as they embark on a perilous journey to gather seven powerful weapons of legend. We are thrilled to see that critics have loved Disgaea 7, with many praising the game for not only taking the series back to its roots, but also for its new innovations and features, particularly Jumbification! "An incredibly compelling new entry, and we can’t recommend it enough to any strategy RPG fans out there." - Nintendo Life Score: 9/10 "The effort made to refine elements from previous titles, and the new mechanical additions like the evil-gacha and jumbification, creates a fresh and fun experience." - NookGaming Score: 9/10 The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails Originally released on the PSP in 2012 for Japan only, The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails is a spin-off of the iconic The Legend of Heroes series. In partnership with NIS America, Reef Entertainment distributed a high-definition remaster of the title to the UK and a variety of regions across Europe this year. The remaster of The Legend of Nayuta garnered an extremely positive reception from fans and critics alike, with praise given for its action-oriented combat and charming characters. “The Legend of Nayuta: Boundless Trails is a masterful spinoff boasting its own distinct identity…” - Noisy Pixel Score: 9.5/10 “The writing is sharp, the characters are interesting, the action is hot, and the boss battles are excellent.” - SwitchArcade Score: 4.5/5 Rhapsody: Marl Kingdom Chronicles Rhapsody: Marl Kingdom Chronicles is a collection of two classic JRPGs, Rhapsody II & III, brought to the West for the first time by NIS America. These delightful titles mix classic JRPG gameplay with catchy musical numbers and beautiful fairytale visuals. In partnership with NIS America, the game was distributed by our team to the UK and a variety of regions across Europe. We are delighted to see the critical response towards Rhapsody: Marl Kingdom Chronicles, with many critics pointing to the incredible music and storybook charm as particular standouts. “From adorable characters to lovely musical numbers and rewarding combat to oodles of side-splitting jokes; there's certainly a lot to love here.” - Video Chums Score: 8.6/10 “Rhapsody: The Marl Kingdom Chronicles is a must-buy for anyone seeking an RPG experience that makes it easy to see the beauty in the world around you.” - Hardcore Gamer Score: 4/5 Jack Jeanne Jack Jeanne is a visual novel and rhythm game created by famed manga artist Sui Ishida (Tokyo Ghoul), published by our partner Aksys Games and distributed by Reef Entertainment to a variety of regions across Europe. The game focuses on Kisa Tachibana, new recruit of the Univeil Drama School, as she tries to achieve her dream of being an actor, all while keeping her identity a secret. Jack Jeanne has been highly acclaimed by critics, even appearing on Metacritic as the 6th best reviewed Nintendo Switch™ game of the year! Critics particularly appreciated the game’s gorgeous artwork and addictive rhythm minigames. “Jack Jeanne is the pinnacle, and evolution of the genre beyond simple dialogue trees. It’s a turning point for romance games, and we are unlikely to see a change so drastic for a long time.” - GLHF on Sports Illustrated Score: 10/10 “Jack Jeanne is honestly one of the best visual novels I have played...” - Otome Kitten Score: 10/10 Radiant Tale Radiant Tale is an otome game published by Aksys Games and distributed in Europe by Reef Entertainment. The game tells the story of Tifalia, a local inn worker, whose life is turned upside down when she agrees to manage a dysfunctional circus troupe.

Here, a girl known as “Death” is approached by a mysterious man who helps her discover the truth behind the mysteries that haunt the land. Virche Evermore -ErroR: Salvation- has seen a very positive reception, with critics praising its well-written characters and atmospheric storytelling. “The cast of characters fit together perfectly and that makes the moments between them more fun.” - NaviGames.es Score: 9/10 “Virche Evermore ~ErroЯ:Salvation skillfully blends a tragic story with unconventional romance.” - Noisy Pixel Score: 8/10 As we approach the end of the year, it’s a good time to look back and reflect on the amazing 2023 we’ve had. Reef Entertainment are extremely proud that the games we’ve worked on with our wonderful partners have been received so incredibly by critics and fans alike.
