Since developers only have a month to create these games, I will be a bit more forgiving of these titles’s shortcomings, however, that doesn’t mean I won’t give you guys my honest opinion in each review.

[First Thoughts] Backstage Pass

Alright, so this is another game that has been sitting in my backlog for way too long. But, since my office was closed for Spring Break  I figured now was a good time as ever to pull this game out of the abyss and give it a play… I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with stats raiser games, on one hand… nah, I’m not even going to try and sugar coat it! Stats raiser games can be a pain in the ass, plain and simple, and I have heard some wonderful stories about the stats raising in SakeVisual’s Backstage Pass, that made me very reluctant to start it…

Backstage Pass  was released twice, the first being the early access beta (2014), which is what I originally bought and never played, and the second being the final completed version of the game which was released August 2016 for PC (Windows, Linux, Mac) and Steam. The game features full English voice acting and at a cool $29.99, I’d say that’s a fair price to pay for the amount of content the game offers.

**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to SakeVisual. Please if you are interested in the game, purchase the game either through the official site or through Steam!!

So this is a special collaboration demo review that I’m doing with my bestie, Bishie! She runs a phenomenal Let’s Play channel over on YouTube and in honor of her reaching 100+ subscribers, we decided to do double reviews… She’d do an LP on YouTube and I’d write a review over here on WordPress, you can watch her LP for Wicked Love, HERE! It’s so good, her voices are perfect for all of the characters, so definitely check that out!! So with out further ado, my review of the demo!!

Edit (2/6): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal. The final funding amount was $3,192 with 149 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of Spring 2017! 

So, I came across this Kickstarter the other day, but it wasn’t until my buddy, Bishie hit me up about doing a collaboration demo review that I really started looking into Spirit Kinder Games’s upcoming supernatural romance, Wicked Love! I’m late, I know, it’s unavoidable, but better late than never!

This is the second crowd funding campaign for Wicked Love and it looks like the second times’s the charm, as they have already reached their funding goal and then some! This is a gorgeous game with a rather unique premise, that sets it apart from other supernatural romance games on the market!

I Date Hot Guys on My iPad: A Love Affair with Virtual Bishies

This post has been a work in progress for over a year, but I could never quite work out how write it out, until the other day when I went to play a game in my backlog and I actually groaned… can you believe that?!

Lately, I’ve been so caught up with all the schedules and reviews, that I’ve kind of lost sight of why I started this blog in the first place: because I love otome games and I want to share that love with the world. Ha ha, it sounds silly when I write it out like that, but it’s been a long time since I really, truly enjoyed playing a game. It’s gotten to be such a chore really, buying games, playing them, writing the reviews, editing… somewhere along the way, playing otome games became a routine… *shudders* it became work and that’s something I never wanted to happen! Sure there have been games that I genuinely liked playing, in fact I played a game the other day that brought back a little of that old spark, but the magic that I had when I first started playing otome games has been gone for a little while now.  So, it’s high time I reminded myself why I fell in love with otome games in the first place, before I wind up resenting them altogether.

Let me warn you guys now, this post is more for me than it is for you guys, I really needed to remember what it was that drew me to otoges. So this won’t be one of those pretty posts that I fuss over endlessly until the wording is just right and expect a lot of “…” so if you’re still with me, I want to write about how I got into otome games…

Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces)-Demo Review

If ya’ll will remember back to my doomed Summer Blogging Plans post, I was supposed to play another game by Poison Apple Tales called, War: Valentines Edition, but like all things, I got distracted and that game kind fell through the cracks. So, when Dreamgazer contacted me a little while ago about the beta demo for their new and improved title, Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces), I knew I had to find a way to fit it into my schedule!

It took me a month, but I finally got around to playing this game and I must say, I am impressed with the sheer scope of this demo! Upon it’s release, Beauty and the War will be available for PC (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and will be completely free!

Let’s Show Our Support for Kokorogawari a Dramatic Romance Visual Novel!!

Edit (1/7): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal. The final funding amount was $ 8,033 with 143 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of Spring 2017! 

Okay, so I’m a day late, but I was experiencing some technical difficulties… *ahem* I am excited to bring you all a very special Kickstarter Campaign for Precatio’s upcoming otome game, Kokorogarwari!

I have been acquainted with one of Precatio’s members, the lovely Laramie Castiel for a while now (she runs an otome blog, Purple Nurple Wonderland), so I’ve been following this game’s progress almost since the beginning! I fell in love with the beautiful artwork, but I stayed for the intriguing premise and character descriptions. This promises to be a fabulous otome game and I can’t wait to get my hands on it when it is released!!
