Hello, everyone! I’m finally keeping my promises and reviewing the games I received a key for. First was SoulSet, now it’s Misadventures of Laura Silver (thank you, Studio Attic Salt for providing me the key ❤️)!! There’s actually one more game I was asked to review around September and the developer didn’t mind waiting since, at the time, I was extremely busy with the courses I finished this month. But I’m so dumb that I forgot to claim the key and now it’s unavailable… I don’t want to send the developer an email and demand for a key ‘cause that just doesn’t sit well with me. But, developer, if you read this and still want me to review your game, please let me know!
Back to the review~
Laura Silver is a paranormal (and paranoid) detective who
loves guns receives the task of investigating a monster, called “The Vodnik”, alongside former policeman Orewell Cooper, in the country of Czechoslovakia. Unfortunately for her, these two find themselves stuck in a “normal” case of murder mystery inside the hotel they are staying at. How will Silver’s misadventures unfold?
NOTE: This review contains spoilers so read at your own risk. If you want to avoid them, though, just jump to “conclusive thoughts”.

Hello everyone! It’s been quite a while, hasn’t it? I’ll probably be completely “off hiatus” around January but, since I wanted to rest a bit from all the work I had to do for the courses I took this year, I figured ‘hey, why not finish playing SoulSet?’ The key was provided by Nayru, creator of this game, so that I could make a review afterwards. Thank you very much ! ❤
In a world where magic, dragons and spirits are present, SoulSet follows the story of Mariko Blairnot, a woman who finds herself trapped in a mansion —surrounded by a magical barrier— together with five other people who have amnesia. In fact, Mariko has amnesia herself, and only remembers bits of her past, specifically having to do with her mother’s death, her dragon companion called Isshin, and a mysterious necromancer who goes by the name of Feathor. Since those two are nowhere to be found, Mariko resolves to investigate her surroundings and having to decide who to trust among the five strangers.
Will she be able to remember her past and manage to escape the mansion alive?
NOTE: This game is marked as NSFW because it has sexual themes, strong language and violence, so keep that in mind.
As always, if you don’t wanna be spoiled, just head to conclusive thoughts.

Hello everyone! As I mentioned on my previous post, this is a board game review I had to do for the game design course I’m attending. The 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?
