Himitsuri no Lagoon (秘密裏のラグーン) otherwise known as Lagoon Lounge, is an adult kemono yaoi (gay) themed visual novel/dating sim created by the circle KAIJYU. In this three part series, the game follows the protagonist Kuugo, whom, after losing his job, reunites with an old friend and starts working at a small town cafe, the Lagoon Lounge. Business has been good lately for the cafe due to an increase in tourism — people coming to experience the mysterious phenomenon known as "The Giant of Harasu." But when other strange things begin to happen, and Kuugo begins to wonder if something sinister is behind it.
The game is complete, providing the reader with multiple routes available for exploration. Total game play time ranges from 2-10 hours
The creator strictly prohibits the uploading of and reverse engineering of the software. Stating that English translations of the software will be discontinued if done so. Wishing that users respect their will and enjoy Lagoon Lounge.
The story is told from the perspective of Kuugo, a Japanese husky, narrating his adventures in the town he's new to, solving the mystery of 'the poisonous fountain,' and running into mischievous acts. The story captures many aspects of Japanese slice-of-life stories. The plot itself revolves around the day-to-day internal operations of the Lounge and its employee's relationships with one another. There is also an unchecked fascination with a mysterious fountain in the middle of town which appears to have some connection to the rampant earthquakes which have been occurring sporadically, dubbed "The Giant of Harasu."

Hidamaru’s Lagoon series was translated by twitter user @and_is_w, transcribed and released in script form, but the games themselves were locked down and could not be translated. It wasn’t until word of an English bootleg (by a third party, now cancelled) surfaced, that Hidamaru acknowledged the translated scripts’ existence. And_is_w took it upon himself to contact Hidamaru and provide him with the translated scripts, and the result is the official English release, Lagoon Lounge.
