So, I’m working on cramming a weeks worth of work into one day… today in fact! But, it has been a slow go, because I keep getting distracted by shows and movies, Netflix is both a gift and a curse!

[Full Game Review] English Otome- Cinderella Phenomenon

Cinderella Phenomenon is a fantasy English language visual novel from indie game developers, Dicesuki. Like their previous game, Locked Heart, Cinderella Phenomenon borrows elements from common fairytales, but with a bit of a twist! Follow Lucette, a cold-hearted princess, who finds herself the victim of a witch’s curse. In order to break her curse Lucette must complete three good deeds, but that’s easier said than done for this selfish royal. This game is completely free and is available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Steam!

At long last, I finally finished playing through Dicesuki’s newest visual novel Cinderella Phenomenon! It took me about two weeks, but I cleared all of the endings, its been awhile since I last cleared a game and now I remember why… it takes forever! But, this game was worth it!! I loved Locked Heart, but, Cinderella Phenomenon is on a whole different level!

Disclaimer: As always while the thoughts and opinions presented in this review are my own, the images and screenshots were created by Dicesuki Games. If you are interested in playing this game, download it from the Cinderella Phenomenon itch.io page or from Steam!!

Don’t Do It: Where I Stand on Piracy in the Otome Community

This post has been a long time coming, and while I have been relatively silent on the whole thing, this is something that needed to be said. Now, there are two reasons I have been quiet about this and they are as follows: One, I know some of the purists out there will find my stance a bit “controversial” (mind you I legit made air quotes when I said that) and I didn’t want to deal with the backlash from that when I was just getting my start… believe it or not I am sensitive about that sort of thing. Two, I was a pirate myself and I had no desire to draw attention to myself by making any claims one way or the other, again in order to avoid backlash…

control your emotions

Before you guys start sharpening your axes and grabbing your pitchforks, I’ll have you know I am reformed and believe me, I have the bank statements to prove it! So, I more or less have a pretty strong opinion about people pirating games, however, you should note that I am not a purist in any sense of the word, so my stance is double sided. I am prepared for a bit of backlash with this one and honestly, you’d be pretty hard pressed to change my opinion on this topic since I have literally been on both sides of the debate. But, I do encourage you all to share your thoughts on this topic in the comments section, however, keep the personal attacks to yourself. I am not against telling someone to *clears throat* “Go fuck themselves”, and that’s literally all the warning I plan on giving, because I do not tolerate personal attacks. 

*Disclaimer: This post contains my thoughts and my opinions about piracy and such I tend to use rather colorful language when discussing things I am passionate about, be warned that there will be a bit of swearing involved in this post. I could have censored this post, but I didn’t!
