What's a Drama App?
Drama Apps are story-based apps for mobile devices. From romance to suspense, users can be the protagonist of their own stories in a new form of entertainment which is neither a game nor a comic.

Romance Apps are apps that allow users to choose the guy they like best and enjoy a love story with him. Over 100 titles are currently available for download through the App Store and Google Play.

Voltage's Romance Apps have been played by more than 60 million people worldwide (as of 11/30/2017). This number reflects the total number of people who downloaded our apps from the App Store or Google Play, on Japanese cell phone carrier plans, and on a variety of social gaming platforms.

Voltage Inc. debuted their English language romance apps to an international audience in 2011, and set up an overseas subsidiary in the U.S.
