Hello all you wonderful Heroes and Travelers, sorry I’ve been AWOL but, it’s Thrifty Thursday and that means another Thrifty Gamer, the weekly post series where I spotlight three otome games/visual novels for gamers on a budget. Whatever your financial situation, I’m here to bring you affordable games that won’t break the bank!! All of the games on this list are $10 or less (does not include limited time offers and sale items), so no more weepy wallets!
This week’s post will include links to the games and a brief synopsis, but let me stress that these are not reviews, but recommendations… so your mileage may vary! Now that that’s out of the way lets get on to this week’s list!!
Autumn’s Journey (2014)- Apple Cider
The world of Ishtera is populated by two races: dragonkind, who have lived there for eons, and the heavenkind, who have recently appeared.
Auralee, an aspiring knight from the farming town of Berri, stumbles upon something unexpected during one of her patrols. After a rather inelegant introduction, Kerr states he’s really an Earth Dragon – one of the mystical beasts that inhabit their world, Ishtera. Whether he likes it or not, Auralee is now involved in his mission to regain his dragon form. Along with some help by a fellow dragonkind named Ilmari, their journey begins…
Autumn’s Journey is a short fantasy visual novel with two pursuable characters with a total of THREE endings. Of the three achievable endings, two are romantic in nature, while one is a joint friendship ending with both potential love interests. The game is available in both English and Spanish, and also features partial voice acting!
The Shadows That Run Alongside Our Car (2016)- Lox Rain
The road is long.
Two strangers sit side by side as night falls over. The car speeds down the open highway.
Without a soul around them, everything seems to slip away. On a journey to no one knows where, all they have is words and time. And that time is dwindling fast.
The shadows are chasing.
The Shadows That Run Alongside Our Car is a short horror visual novel with two main characters, players can choose to play as either Dustin or Shelby (names changeable) as they embark on a road trip into the unknown. There are a total of six unique endings, three for each of the main characters.
Sailor Moon Drops (2016)-BANDAI NAMCO
Sailor Moon Drops is a mobile puzzle game featuring the characters from the classic magical girl anime, Sailor Moon. In the same strain as games like Candy Crush and Bejeweled, player are tasked with shifting around multicolored jewels in order to clear various puzzles and protect the citizens of Tokyo from Queen Beryl’s minions.
