You Can Enjoy Your Massage from August 9th

Get your relaxation on, North America

We got our first sight of Enjoy Your Massage! with an ESRB rating last month, and now we have the first screenshots, trailer and a release date for this upcoming downloadable relaxation-puzzle game.

Coming to North American WiiWare on August 9th for an as-yet unspecified price, Enjoy Your Massage! puts you in the position of an apprentice masseur at a popular beauty farm. Your job, of course, is to relax the many stressed customers – all of whom are female, naturally – by exercising your natural gift for massage, with the aim of rising to become the farm's director if you do well.

The trailer below shows the game to be a matter of repeating coloured patterns in a Simon-style, but with a few extra elements to flesh it out. Check out the video below and the press release at the bottom for all the information you need.

Toronto, Canada, July 9th, 2010 - Microforum Ltd., a worldwide publisher and software developer, today announced that its massage simulator puzzle game, Enjoy your massage!, will be available on WiiWareTM in North America on 9th August.

In Enjoy your massage! you will be hired as an apprentice masseur of Giselle's beauty farm, one of the most famous in the city. Learn new relaxing massage combinations and apply them on your stressed customers! As an apprentice, you'll have to do your best: if your client gets angry, no one will save you from losing your job, but if you prove to be able, you might even become the director of the whole beauty farm!

Enjoy your massage! has been created with the cooperation of a team of psychologists: a special mix of slow breath-rythmical animations and harmonic sound relaxes the player and enhances his emotional involvement.

Geeze, what'll they think of next? At least Sexy Poker was, ummm... Sexy?

Besides, what does hitting rectangles have to do with giving a massage? Well, gotta give them at least partial credit for giving us something we haven't seen before :P

The artwork looks nice, but the gameplay looks like it will get old fast, especially since you only get to do a back massage.

Edit: On second thought, forget everything I said about the artwork. Up close, it's horrid.

Incidentally, it's been rated E10+ by the ESRB for "Mild suggestive themes" (code-word for "titillating content").

The ESRB describe the game as follows...
"This is a massage simulation game in which players match patterns in order to perform back massages on clients. Players are prompted to rub specific areas of clients' backs in order to relax them. After massages are performed correctly, players are presented with images of the female clients in various poses (e.g., lounging on a beach in a bikini, playing golf while wearing a short skirt and a cleavage-bearing top, or straddling a motorcycle). Players can also move the camera and zoom in on the reward pictures."

Ugly pictures. I hoped it was 3D models. But i think it´ll cost 500 pts and 40 memory blocks.

I was almost hoping that this would be Vitality Sensor compatible. And what, no Simon fans here? (Even if this is semi-bare-bones Simon with a massage aesthetic)
