A 2006 breakdown of the Japanese commercial BL market estimated it grosses approximately 12 billion yen annually, with video games generating 160 million yen per month.
Very few BL games have been officially translated into English.
Soon, new genres were invented: ASCII's Chaos Angels, a role-playing-based eroge, inspired Dragon Knight by Elf and Rance by Alice Soft.
In the early 1990s eroge games became much more common.
As with yaoi manga, the major market is assumed to be female.
Games aimed at a homosexual male audience may be referred to as bara.
Boys' Love (BL) games (also known as yaoi games) usually refers to eroge oriented around male homosexual couples for the female market.
