Ruby Party (ルビー・パーティー) is a video game developing team working for Koei that focus on the company's popular romance-adventure series for their female consumers (known now as their Neo Romance series -ネオロマンスシリーズ- to respect male fans). The team is famous for producing the first romance title to appeal to the female market in Japan, starting the trend for the Otome game genre. Members of the team are known to be predominately female, but the structure has changed over the years to also include male developers.

In addition to the games they have produced, Ruby Party partakes or supervises the various media made based on their products such as drama CDs, light novels, magazine publications, radio programs, live events, manga, and anime. Ruby Party's current ongoing collaboration is with the Nakayoshi magazine for a comic serialization called, Miss Puri!; the story follows young maidens competing in the "Miss Princess Contest" -contest for the best woman in Japan- while being assisted by their attractive stewards. A game adaption of the comic, Miss Princess: Miss Puri!, became a Neoromance entry.

Sengoku Angelique, a Warring States version of the Angelique series, is limited to printed media. Primarily known as a comic, a light novel and live-performed skits were also made for this Angelique universe. The game novel series, LoveφSummit, is considered the fifth entry for the Neoromance franchise. It is limited as a mobile phone service and will likely not be made available for any video game consoles. Two CDs, a short animated feature, and a serialized comic adaption have been made for LoveφSummit.

Presently, the games have remained in Japan –aside from a few rare exceptions– with a large fan following in the east. Two of the manga serializations (La Corda d'Oro being the title for Kiniro no Corda and Haruka -Beyond the Stream of Time- for Harukanaru Toki no Naka de) were translated by Viz Media for their Shojo Beat publications. Three of the anime TV series (Haruka: Beyond the Stream of Time - A Tale of the Eight Guardians, Neo Angelique Abyss as well as its second season Neo Angelique Abyss -Second Age-, and La Corda D'Oro ~primo passo~) have also been localized. They remain with the original voice actors with English subtitles.

If enough interest arises for the games, there may be a chance someday they will be brought overseas and translated into English.
