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? 😆

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!

Hellooooo everyone!!! 😀 How have you been? I have good and bad news. Bad news is that this weekend I had an awful series of headaches and could barely do anything 😥 I really hope my health improves cause’ I haven’t been feeling all that well lately plus I’m losing my appetite :’D but worry not cause’ I’ve already made an appointment with the doctor for a check-up so hopefully they help me 🙂 I’m also thinking of doing a sport. I bet that’ll help me lots. As for the good news *drum roll* I became a premium member at Crunchyroll!!! Ohoho, but that’s not all! I found a video game seller in Buenos Aires (where I live) who is really trustworthy and can bring video games upon request!!! This means that I’ll finally be able to get my hands on physical versions of otome games (and other games of course)!!!! No more excessive digital purchases 😀 and now that we’re talking about digital…he also sells steam cards!!!! YAAAY!!! And last, but not least, I started translating Cafe 0 ~The Sleeping Beast~ to spanish 😀 That’s right, the game I’m about to review!! Well, truth is I already wrote a review about this game on steam (ask me if you wanna know my username 😉 ) but I also wanted to write a review here, so it’ll be kind of similar (there might even be some copypaste lol) to the one on steam but at least it’ll keep my blog fuller ❤

Without further ado, let’s begin!!!

Otome game review: Hustle Cat

photo-original

Love cats? Love Cafes? Love fantasy? Love cute characters? Then Hustle Cat is the game for you! Set in a quiet part of the city, Hustle Cat tells the story of Avery Grey, a scruffy 19-year-old youngster and owner of a persian cat named Mochi, who’s looking for a job while taking care of their Aunt’s apartment. After giving up the internet search, Avery seeks for a change of pace so they go out for a walk. In the middle of the stroll, they come upon a cafe called “A Cat’s Paw” which is currently hiring new employees. After passing a very strange interview, Avery celebrates their new situation. However, they soon realize that the odd Cafe they’re now working for is afflicted with a curse that turns their coworkers into cats! Can Avery break the curse? And who’s the one behind it?

Note: This review contains spoilers so read at your own risk. If you want to avoid them, though, just jump to “conclusive thoughts”. I’ll also refer to Avery as a she, since I chose to use that pronoun.
