Faced with the threat of being forcibly censored out of existence by the government, in 1992 the bishōjo game industry formed the Computer Software Rinri Kikō (meaning "Ethics Organization for Computer Software", and often abbreviated EOCS or Sofu-rin), setting industry guidelines for acceptable content and packaging.

This organization tamed down the most objectionable content in the "wild west" of the 1980s.

The game caused debate in the Japanese parliament and was eventually recalled and re-released with the most controversial scenes removed.

The industry gradually moved away from proprietary Japanese hardware to the burgeoning DOS platform, and then later in the decade to Windows.

However, it was unique in that it contained not only adventure-game elements but also a combat system borrowed from tactical combat games such as Tactics Ogre.

More recently the Play Station 2 has been the console of choice with a growing number of games for the Play Station Portable and Nintendo DS handhelds.

Games ported to consoles usually have adult content removed.

The industry of bishōjo games is closely related to the industry of anime and Japanese manga.

Thus free from controversy and fueled by continuing improvement in technology, in the 1990s the bishōjo game industry underwent a decade-long boom.

The first major title of the 1990s was Tokimeki Memorial.
