Soooooooooo, it’s summertime, and you know what that means: Steam sales! The rest of the Taisho Alice games all got released in pretty rapid fashion so I picked them all up at the discounted rate. Again, as before they’re releasing these games in four parts, so this one just covers Gretel and Kaguya (plus the short prologue with Katakana Alice, of course) and therefore still doesn’t cover any of the overarching metanarrative just yet.
That’s right, it’s time once again for me to sell some more Steam cards to Russian money launderers and play some more PC otome games! I had bought this game as usual during one of the regular Steam sales…and didn’t realize that the next Taisho Alice game had come out recently as well. So next time that one is also available for like seven cents I’ll also pick it up, but for now it’s just Cinderella and Little (Big?) Red Riding Hood. This one’ll be shorter than usual since it’s only covering two routes out of full game, and again as usual I’ll include spoilers because this game came out like 5 years ago.
Aria is an orphan living alone in her parents’ house for the last 8 years. Her parents died in an accident when she was 10 and ever since she’s been taking care of the house and studying to be a wizard. It’s been her dream to enter the Iris School of Wizardry and well dreams come true when she gets accepted and her tuition magically paid by an unknown patron. She joins the Class X Society as well thanks to her turbo photographic memory. Right before she enters the school she adopts a black cat named Titi.
This is the fandisk to Taisho Alice, and because some of it is more like another point of view, it contains some spoilers from the first game so caution to anyone reading.
