Mystery-Adventure-Comedy game review: The Darkside Detective

darkside

Hello everyone! It’s been like 100 years since I last posted a review about a mystery game 😆 so I decided to write one about The Darkside Detective, an indie Steam game available for Windows, Mac and Linux. The game was so well received that it even got funded on kickstarter for a second season (the first season was funded on kickstarter too)!! Woo!!

In this game, you play as McQueen, a detective who works alongside his partner, Officer Dooley, in the Darkside Divison; which is lacking in budget but filled with paranormal and occult cases. Will McQueen ever get a raise? 😆

Otome game review: Wishes in Pen: Chrysanthemums in August (Demo)

wishes in pen

Hello everyone! Wishes in Pen: Chrysanthemums in August is an otome game by Lunaniere which had a successful kickstarter last year and is currently on the works. This review will focus on the demo.

Lunaniere actually contacted me quite a while ago (around August 2018) to ask for a review of their demo but, since I was a bit busy at the time, I told them it’d probably take me a while. I didn’t expect it would take me this long, though, so I apologize for the wait!

The MC is a young woman from modern Tokyo who works as a fashion designer and goes on a business trip to Kyoto for a fashion event. However, she just isn’t happy with her work and wishes she could live another life… Who would have thought that her wish would come true in the most unimaginable way possible?

Thriller-romance Visual novel review: Dead Wishes

deadwishes

Hello everyone! Dead Wishes is a recent game that was released on itch.io on December 2018 after an extremely successful kickstarter campaign. It’ll soon be available for Steam as well! Before I begin, I wanted to say thank you very much to Violet for giving me a key to the game to review! ❤

After the death of their parents, the protagonist has suffered from depression for over a year and hasn’t been doing anything but stay at their apartment in solitude. However, an eviction notice from the landlady will force them into action. Upon this desperate situation, what will the MC do? Will they find a job or live on the streets? Become a criminal or take care of a couple of dysfunctional sisters? Join the mafia or the church?

NOTE: Even though this game isn’t strictly otome, I will tag it as such since the protagonist is non-binary and, thus, the player can give them the gender they prefer (so, in my case, I always imagined them to be female). Also, TRIGGER WARNING; this game is marked as NSFW because it has a lot of violence, sexual themes, and psychological horror (but not graphic sexual content) and most of it is directed towards the main character (MC), so keep that in mind.

As always, if you don’t wanna be spoiled, just head to conclusive thoughts.

Comedy-Horror Otome game review: XOXO Blood Droplets (Expanded Demo)

screenshot0001

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since my last post, but here I am with a brand new review. XOXO Blood Droplets is a spin-off of the hilarious comedy dating-sim XOXO Droplets (where the only horror is in failing to get a wonderful jerk- boyfriend by making everyone at school hate you, resulting in a game over).

You play as JB, a cocky guy-loving girl who desperately wants to get a boyfriend…even if he’s a serial killer.

Let’s begin!
