Otome Game Review: Sakuya

For reasons I cannot explain I’ve been holding off on playing this game but I finally got to it and HELL YEA WORTH ALL THE $8 I PAID FOR IT. Seriously Tetrascope strikes again with their beautiful art and amazing writing and characterization. It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed an otome game maker this much and they’re not even an official company! So I’ll just have to throw my money at them in hopes they will produce more awesome games for me to enjoy \( ^o^)/. The story takes place in a distant future where android robots are now part of society. Our heroine Akane, lives with an android robot named Sakuya that her father created. Her childhood friend Shin wants to buy Sakuya for his company to research but Akane refuses to sell him. She has trouble making ends meet and if she sold him she’d be set for life but she can’t bring herself to sell him cause he’s like family to her now. Before her father died he told her to always be with Sakuya for the rest of her life, and if they were ever to part, to destroy him.

Android Otome Game Review: Koisuru Hakodate

koihako

Our heroine Shiraishi Toko is sent to Hakodate in Hokkaido for a 1 month business trip. When she gets there she runs into her childhood friend, who runs a cafe, as well as his regular friends and customers. This is a mobile game where the intro is free but you pay $3 or so for each guy’s route. There’s 6 guys in total but for several reasons I’ve only bought 1 so I’ll be reviewing only Kohei’s route. Official site here which has links to both the iphone and android versions.

Ayazuki Mei is a gluttonous high school teenager who runs into some do-M wacko named Charlie at a magic show at her local summer festival.

They’re both hungry so they sneak into a fancy Rokumeikan building but instead of roast beef, they run into famous Meiji era historical figures! So now Mei gets to choose which historical bishie she gets to snag, while dealing with the fact that she’s completely lost all memories of her present time self.  On top of this, she magically gains tamayori powers and can see dead people.

Otome Game Review: Glass Heart Princess -PLATINUM-

Decided to catch up on some old backlog and realized I still never played this fandisk! I’m glad I picked it up since it really reminded me of how much fun the GHP team is and well now I’m really looking forward to their upcoming game (Trigger Kiss). Anyway the FD is split into a few sections – vacation trip, after story, 3P routes, side story and a story for Satsuki. For the vacation trip, because Kyoko was busy training her heart last summer she missed out on her high school summer activities. Her friend offers her special tickets to a private island resort and worried about her heart Kyoko wants to refuse….but Satsuki grabs them and says THIS YO CHANCE GUUURL. And so Kyoko and all her mans fly down for some hot summer events by the sea. The after stories are events immediately following the endings of the first game.

Otome Game Review: Chronostacia

It’s year 2999, and the residents of Albion live in a town which is towered by a large yggdrasil tree with a giant sand clock embedded into it. This sandclock determines humanity’s time and if not flipped properly every 1000 years, humanity will disappear! In order to keep the time flowing, a “BANK” collects everyone’s time and those who do not deposit it eventually get turned into time sand. Our heroine Lucia runs a cafe called Cocono Cocono and is the owner of a small sand clock that resembles the one embedded in the yggdrasil tree. One day the bank informs everyone that an organization called “Baroque” has raided the time bank and stolen all the time. Due to this, there’s only 99 days left until the world ends. Immediate spoilers following the cut!

Special: Where are they now? ~A look at the status of defunct otome game companies~

blding

Alright so we know Quin Rose and Otomate are pumping out stuff monthly but that’s not what this post is about. I’ve reviewed a lot of games on this blog from all sorts of companies…but now that I think about it….what ever happened to company XYZ? I played their game ABC but haven’t heard of them since. Some of these companies were 1 hit wonders who vanished after their terrible first and only release. And so this post is dedicated to those companies who have gone MIA or simply vanished from existence.

Otome Game Review: Watashi no Real wa Jujitsu Shisugiteiru

Translated as roughly “My offline life is blossoming too well” the story is about Anesaki Nozomi who is a closet otaku. She acts like she’s Miss Perfect in school, always doing favors for teachers and getting the best grades. She’s even the VP of student council and is an idol amongst her peers. However the moment she gets home, Nozomi whips out her 3DS and starts poking her 2D mens! The only one who knows the truth about her otaku hobbies is her step brother Shun, who she is currently living alone with because their parents are traveling overseas.  This is a free doujin game created by Tetrascope and is available to download on their site. Spoilers after the jump and also because this game is really good there’s a LOT OF TEXT \(^o^)/

Otome Game Review: Minus Eight (-8)

Yaotome Rei is about to start her first year of high school but she didn’t get into the school she wanted. The reason is her middle school senpais wasted her time with studying too much or slacking off too much and she ended up failing all her entrance exams. The only school that accepts her is a school that takes in the most disappointing students in all of Japan. Rei decides she’ll try her best anyway until she finds out that the school’s gonna be shut down mid year because the principal is also an idiot :lol: The principal says that the only way to save the school from getting shut down is to…..fall in love! By showing that the school is full of raburabu couples, apparently they will get a large sum of money (probably because Japan’s birth rate is abysmally low www). Now it’s up to Rei to find the man of her dreams, but unfortunately she only has a bunch of losers to choose from.
