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?




  • 10 planned playable waifu routes with their own unique personalities, stories, kinks, dynamism and interaction with you, the MC.
  • 9 character routes currently available!
  • 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!

*To be developed more later on when we're much closer to finishing up the main character routes.

"I won't lie, I was on the lookout for a f*ping game when I stumbled upon this VN ^^''. But, I found myself, 2 hour and half later, still playing, following the story, thinking thoroughly of each decision I was to make having the sake of the characters like prior thought. I find it formidable how it captivated me as quickly as it did( no expert but I liked the naration and the interactions). The music, which I found really pleasant just to listen even presently, as I write from the title screen, added to the quality of this great game althought, as already said, the moment of prolonged silence made me thinked my speekers were defectious ha ha. To finalize this critic/words of appreciation, call it as you may, I would like to thank you, BeerBrew and Sharkie from PaperWaifu Studio, you've made those 2 and a half hour very enjoyable and can't wait to see what's next. To the joy of seeing your futures release."

"The narrative is actually good. Is this real life?"

"Lots of potential and a great game. Such a nice and thoughtful story that really can touch a person. You even forget that this is an eroge in the process. Seriously this thing deserves to be greenlit. Anyway keep up the good work. Can't wait for the other girls and routes."

"Very nice demo, can't wait to see the next chapter!"

"I like long involved storylines and this one is certainly has the pagecount to qualify. :) Almost too long, as others have pointed out I was probably halfway through the game (demo,) and I was still seriously wondering why it had an "A" rating. I did find the storyline entertaining... who knew I could be interested in what makes a Ramen chef?"

I´m Curious, what did everyone decide to name their MC? To be fair, ill tell you what i named mine, Mitoshi Hiragana.

P.S I really loved this game, art style isnt my favorite, but its good either way!

First of all, lovely game. Great artwork, and something that is different to so many other visual novels, good writing. Now, it said, that in the free version, there are four paths fully available: May I ask, which ones?
Thank you ^^

By 3 routes publicly available, do you mean there are 3 characters who have their routes fully unlocked?

Hello! Yes that's right! ^^


And are there any free walkthroughs for these routes? Or do I have to brute force it?

Haha, well, give it a shot for now ;)

When is the are updates for 

"Plz make 4th character full story"

I created an account solely to plead that the soundtrack for this game get put on iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud...whatever music platform you can. When I came to play this game, I did not expect the music to be full of bangers.

Helloooo! Thanks for playing ;)! I wish we could, but unfortunately, we can't due to our agreement with our music provider. There's a sound test feature in-game for those who like to listen to them though :)
