Hello everyone! As I mentioned on my previous post, I’ll be posting the monthly board game reviews I make for the game design course I’m attending so that the blog isn’t so inactive. The first board game I decided to write about is the card game Koi-Koi!

Hello everyone! Here I am with a brand new review! This time is from a recent adventure game that came out for the Switch and PS4. The Liar Princess & The Blind Prince is, essentially, a fairytale love story with reminiscences of The Little Mermaid and The Beauty & The Beast.
Once upon a time, in a forest next to a kingdom from a faraway land, there was a wolf who had a beautiful voice and sang towards the moon, high atop a cliff, every night. Her voice was so beautiful that it attracted a young prince, who ventured out of the kingdom and into the dangerous forest, just to hear her song. The wolf noticed the prince and was flattered by his applause, so she too looked forward to sing every night, in hopes that he would clap for her singing again. However, the prince’s curiosity led him to try to figure out the wolf’s identity so, one night, after she finished her song, he climbed atop the cliff. Scared to make the prince horrified by her look, the wolf attempted to cover his eyes, but ended up hurting them instead, leaving him blind. Due to his blindness, the prince brought shame to the royal family and was locked away in the castle’s tower. The wolf was worried about him and angry about how he was being treated, so she went to the witch of the forest to request her help. In exchange for her singing voice, the witch transformed her into a princess, so that she would be able to take the prince’s hand; but still gave her the ability to transform back into a wolf, so that she could protect the prince in the journey towards her magical house.
And so, after managing to escape from the castle’s tower, the liar princess and the blind prince begin their journey into the forest to reach the witch’s house…

Hello everyone! RPG reviews are another thing I haven’t done for a while so I figured I’d make a post about this game!! I binge-played it over the course of November 2018, but I still have the game experience engraved in my heart.

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? 😆

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?

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.

Five people get trapped inside a strange mansion full of monsters with no recollection of who they are nor what their past might be. Each one of them has a cellphone with a single message that serves as a clue to find a way out of the manor and solve the mystery of their amnesia. Will they succeed or stay trapped forever?
Hello everyone! Time for the first review of the year! I was a bit slow with most of 2018’s console otome games so that’s why I’m reviewing them a bit late. I even plan to make a review on Period Cube eventually even though it’s been more than a year for that one lol. But, anyway, let’s begin!
NOTE: Beware, there’s a lot of ranting (and swearing) 😆 . Remember this is my opinion and you don’t necessarily have to agree with it. As always, if you don’t wanna be spoiled, just head to conclusive thoughts.
