So I didn’t intend to play this when it came out a year ago but I found it on sale while I was in Japan and was like well why not? Turns out it was actually a worthwhile purchase for me. I played this solely during my commute which is why it took me almost 2 months to complete but I enjoyed it none the less. The game begins with our heroine (who will forever be known as Mary Sue on this blog) once again having no memories as she’s transported through different “worlds”. Pretty much brief summaries ahead and not much of a spoiler so feel free to read on everything except Second World which actually has the true spoiler of the game.
Based on the story of the Snow Queen, our heroine Gerda lives in a small village with her childhood friend & neighbor Kai. She also has other childhood friends in the village like Craes who works at a bakery, and the sickly Orva who’s got some incurable disease where he’s bed ridden all the time. Then there’s also Aje who lives in another village but he’s been traveling and searching for someone so he’s stopped in Gerda’s village for a bit. One day Kai brings Gerda a mirror saying it can make any wish come true so everyone decides to get together and wish for it to cure Orva’s disease. Unfortunately it’s a cursed mirror created by a demon using the powers of the Snow Queen and when they make the wish it breaks into pieces. The pieces all get thrown inside the bodies of Gerda and her friends placing a curse on all of them. Kai becomes bipolar, Aje gets foot in mouth disease, Craes is able to predict bad people, Gerda gets superman strength but Orva’s disease is cured despite him now basically rotting anything he touches. The demon who created the mirror shows up and tells them that if they want to break the curse they need to go see the Snow Queen in the White World, but the only way to do this is to go to the Red, Green and Yellow worlds to obtain special keys. With this, Gerda and her friends gather together to begin Snow Bound Land: The Incredible Journey.
Let’s be honest, this isn’t a sequel or an alternative Dia. This is really just Quin Rose trying to suck their remaining customer base dry by splitting the Dia game in half and releasing 2 separate games. This time, Boris, Julius, Gray, Nightmare and Ace get routes but after finishing the game I can definitely say they could have easily combined the 2 into 1 disk by simply cutting out all the fat. Anyway I think I’m going into my final thoughts in the intro paragraph so I’ll stop here :lol:. Basically Alice is once again in Clover no Kuni and she goes through the looking glass to find herself once again in the Country of Diamonds, with no recollection of any of the events that happened in the previous Dia game.
Because apparently 96 of you voted for this, I decided to finally play Black Wolves Saga. There’s a country of Weblin where humans and furries once lived in peace. The humans let the cats and wolves take lead, and there are other races like rabbits, dogs, mice etc. One day someone from the wolf race went and stabbed someone from the cat race and that’s when shit hit the fan. A war broke out between cats and wolves and just around that time
rabies some black plague disease called Zodiva spread and started mass killing everyone. Someone then started a rumor that the plague came from the wolves and then the wolves started getting attacked by humans to “wipe away the disease.” In self defense, the wolves started fighting back (though most of the time beyond their control due to the mad cow disease). Needless to say with plagues and rumors going around, the wolves pretty much got wiped off the face of Weblin – except they didn’t. In fact the remaining wolves have all been secretly living in the woods while Weblin was taken over by the cats. Meanwhile back at the ranch, there’s a rich ojousama named Fiona Galland who is our heroine. She’s just reached her 16th birthday and she spent her entire life living in a tower like Rapunzel, never being allowed to see the outside world. The reason being is because Fiona was born with SPECIAL genes Key Aids and her body called Robeira, so she is incredibly weak that even catching a cold can be deadly. On her 16th birthday they figure that it’s safe for her to leave the nest and see the outside world. Unfortunately by doing so, she gets caught in between the battle of the furries. In other words, welcome to Rejet’s rendition of Animal Farm!
