Loving You Fully Indie Game Review – Self Love is BEST Love

Every so often I come across a game that just speaks to me on so many levels that I just can’t help but rave about it! The other day I came across, Loving You Fully on Twitter and I was immediately taken in by this charming visual novel that focuses not on romantic love, but on self love. On top of that heroine is a plus sized Black woman and I don’t need to tell you all this is the stuff dreams are made of! As a thick Black woman I have been waiting FOREVER for a game with a heroine like Bianca!!

Sifting Thyme Otome Review – Stir Up Some Romance

Sifting Thyme is a cooking themed mobile otome game developed by indie studio, Nochi Studios. In the game you play as the newest transfer student at a prestigious culinary academy. Immerse yourself in a world of food as you start out your culinary journey—learn about the food industry, while getting to know your talented classmates. The game was originally released episodically, with new chapters being released monthly. Earlier this month the final chapter was released, and I figured now was the perfect time to review the whole game! 

Cute boys and good food… what’s not to love? If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I’ve kind of shied away from mobile games in recent years—mobile games can take up a LOT of space on my phone. But, Sifting Thyme is such a sweet and chill game, it was totally worth the download.

Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap – February 2021

Hey there Blerdy Tribe! Is it just me or did February feel like the longest and the shortest month all at once? We’re coming up on March, which marks exactly 1 year since I started working from home thanks to Rona. It’s kind of strange to think that this is the new normal and while I don’t miss the crowded trains and buses of my daily commute, I do miss being able to have big group events with friends.

Despite that, I’ve been keeping myself busy writing and slowly putting a dent in my gaming backlog, which has done wonders for this blog. Yay! Also, this month WordPress and Anchor set up a partnership that allows bloggers to turn their blog posts into podcast episodes! I gave it a try and my first episode is up on Anchor! It’s for the BL game, My Dangerous Life, which if you’ve already read the written review, you know I have very strong feelings about. So, if you have the time, definitely give it a listen and let me know what you think!

Dot Kareshi – We’re 8bit Lovers! II ~The Sky’s Kiss~ Otome Review

Dot Kareshi is a fantasy otome game series developed by Rejet that parodies the RPG genre. There are three games in the series: The Legendary Maiden, Tenkuu no Kiss,  and Yami no Hanayome. You play as a young woman who is transported into her favorite RPG. While there you must help the other characters complete their quests in order to return home. Each game takes place within the fictional RPG, Ultimate Quest and features love interests based on common RPG classes. The series can get a bit fanservice-y at times, but it always manages to stay juuust shy of a mature rating. 

While the series hasn’t had an official English language localization, in 2015 Golden Spirit released unofficial patches for all three games in the series.
