Thailand now has bishoujo games too! And I’m not kidding…
Angel’s Tale from StudioGU’s is a bishoujo game made in Thailand.
Bishoujo isn’t the first word on my mind whenever the word Thailand pops up, probably culture. While Kotaku reports the game as an eroge (ero-game), I’m siding with DarkMirage’s point of view of it being a bishoujo, supported by the company website’s quote:
We StudioGU are independent game developers that live in Thailand and aim to
produce "Visual Novel" genre games "WITHOUT any adult material".
And also that the fact that making eroge in Thailand is illegal and they have the new cyber laws implemented in July earlier this year.

That aside, it’s pretty on par with the other amateur doujin works. A couple of comments (Presumed to be from the Thais) over at Kotaku said the story’s pretty good after having played the game.
For those who would like to try it out could head over here and grab the demo. There are mentions of English and if possible Japanese language patches for the game demo in the future as well.
BTW, Any Thai readers that have tried the game before?
