Otomate can’t seem to put their cow to pasture so they pooped out another Norn9 game. Unfortunately they’re completely out of ideas and grasping for straws so what better way to do this then to use different writers and artists and just do a bootleg mashup of Last Era!? Not much of a review ahead and mostly just rambles about the game.
Emily Whiteley’s parents were killed when she was 4 years old and she was saved by her butler Ralph Pendleton who rescued her from the burning house. He took her to some house in the boonies and raised her along with some other house servants until she turned 16. After solving the mystery of a lost cat for the queen, Emily is given a special crown to be the queen’s official appointed detective – along with Herlock Holmes, the son of the famous Sherlock Holmes. She moves to London and enrolls in a special detective class at the Harrington academy. While she studies to be a better detective, she’s also working on solving the mystery being her parents’ murder – which was written off as a “fire accident” 12 years earlier. This is the PS Vita port of the 2013 PSP game.
Greetings again, buta-ettes! Oink if ya hear me! (::deafening grunts split the earth asunder and blot out the sun::). Today we will be reviewing Norn9 (and unfortunately this is the all ages version, not the R18 version Norn69), and trigger warning here but…it kinda sucked. I’ll also toss in an overall spoiler warning in here because while I won’t be doing summaries of the routes, I will be discussing plot points in a spoiler way in order to complain about them.
This is the fandisk for Norn9 that I’ve been dragging on for a month due to getting new apartments, new furniture and new computers. Fortunately it’s also because oddly enough it had a lot of content for a fandisk. (The value of the content may vary by person but I personally enjoyed it.) There’s 4 sections, Prelude – the intro of how everyone came on the ship, Fuga – the original game digest from the guy’s POV, Concerto – the continuing after story and Fantasia – a bonus omake with everyone turning into chibi characters. Spoilers ahead so skip to my final thoughts to avoid them as usual!
Our heroine has amnesia and finds herself in a familiar town full of mafia families. She gets picked by one of them, the Oz family. They’re not just any family though, they are the Wizard of OZ characters, with the leader being the Lion Caramia, and his two right hand men the Scarecrow Kyrie and the Tin Man Axel. They give her the name Fuka and from that day on she spends her days being a freeloader and interacting with other mafia families in town. Spoilers immediately following the jump so skip to my final thoughts if you’re still playing/planning to play!
