Cupid is a goddess in the god world Dii Consentes whose job is to shoot arrows at people whose colors “match up well” to make them fall in love. Unfortunately all the people she’s shot so far have fallen in love but almost immediately broken up! Her father calls her a useless faildaughter, so her aunt Minerva teaches her about smartphones and social media to try to get her caught up with the times. Cupid is then surprised to find a company called Cupid Corporation and ends up getting a job there while keeping her true identity a secret. She also adopts the name Lynette Mirror, based on the heroine from her favorite movie. With time, becomes the best wedding planner & matchmaker to show her father that she is the best Cupid there ever was. She gets a tough assignment to get 5 of the most “hard to match” candidates, known as Parasite5, but she accepts in hopes of a promotion at her job. Warning, I apparently wrote a really long summary of every route so text walls (and spoilers of course) ahead lol.
Who knew I’d play another Quin Rose game!? I guess boredom hit me hard this summer and with a lack of any new otome game releases period I decided to play the FD I never bothered to. It’s actually the FD to the first Alice game except they replaced Dee & Dum with Humpty & Dumpty. They claim themselves to be twins but they look nothing alike and Alice thinks she’s going crazy cause it’s not Dee & Dum lol. Nightmare explains that it’s just a “crazy storm” where everyone changes temporarily, except Alice, since she’s an outsider – and that’s why nobody thinks Humpty & Dumpty replacing Dee & Dum is odd except for her. So basically it was an excuse for QuinRose to justify changing people and making them O/C and while it worked in some it ended up ruining things for me in others.
Surprising nobody: it was terrible and I didn’t think it was going to be anything but. Still, due to lack of console games lately, I was bored out of my mind (and lured in by Uchida Yuuma) that I decided to give it ye’ old free 2 play only experience to see how far I could get before rage quitting.
A long time ago, I sold all the Steam cards that I got from idling in games while doing chores to Russian money launderers and eventually saved up enough money to buy Men of Yoshiwara: Kikuya during a Steam sale for like 90% off. Then I promptly forgot that I did this, because as we all know you’re not supposed to actually play the games that you buy during Steam sales…until finally deciding to return to my backlog after all the other games I was playing like FFXIV got put on hiatus due to the roni.
