At the recent figurine-extravaganza event Wonder Festival 2010 [Winter], Max Factory announced that the upcoming erogame se.kirara will be distributed gratis.
The ‘pure-love adventure’ game takes place in a traditional school setting, featuring five heroines to pursue, and over 100 unique CG pictures and 15 H-scenes to unlock. The girls are fully voiced, and the game also has an animated opening sequence and various songs.
In a question-and-answer session, Max Factory assured the stunned audience that despite the ‘free’ label, the game will have all trappings of comparable erogames on the market.
Only the limited edition of the game, bundled with a Figma figurine, will retail for ¥2,800.
The release date for the game is March 26, 2010.
The distribution method and any verification of the purchaser’s age with a free distribution have yet to be determined.

Perhaps distributing free eroge is a new, bold marketing scheme, to generate maximum distribution to the masses and profit from related merchandise sales?
