Nee Pon? × Rai Pon! (ね〜PON?×らいPON! Nēpon Raipon ) is a Japanese visual novel developed by Navel and its sister company, Lime. The game, made for the PC, was adult-only and was released on August 31, 2007. The "Pon"'s in the title refer to the term pong in the strategy game mahjong. This is due to an element in the gameplay of Nee Pon? × Rai Pon! where the player gets to play mahjong against the computer. The mahjong tiles in the game contain images of the characters from Shuffle! and Soul Link, two previous titles by Navel.
Each of the characters work at a restaurant, and are divided according to where they are employed. These restaurants are: Candy House (キャンディハウス Kyandi Hausu ), Fruits Party (フルーツパーティ Furūtsu Pāti ), Mix Juice (ミックスジュース Mikkusu Jūsu ), Cocktail Party (カクテルパーティ Kakuteru Pāti ), and Daughter Daughter Tea House (娘々茶館 Nyannyan Chakan ). In addition to the original characters to Nee Pon? × Rai Pon!, the three Navel Girls and Lime Girls who were created as mascots of Navel and Lime, also appear in the game. Most of the girls are named after food.
