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.
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.
Hey Blerdy Tribe! Today is release day for Code Realize Wintertide Miracles for the Nintendo Switch! For those of you that don’t know Wintertide Miracles is the third chapter in the Code Realize series which follows Cardia Beckford, a young woman with poisonous skin and her adventures with a group of famous literary heroes.

So let’s dive in and check out what comes with the LE and whether or not I think they justify the $59.99 price tag.
Most of us are still kicking it in our homes, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the world stops. Between work, school, and family, it can seem like there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything we want done. Finding time for your responsibilities and your hobbies can be a bit of a balancing act, and for a lot of folks that means that our hobbies get relegated to the weekends (or late into the night).
Well if you’re looking for some games you can play through in a single weekend, I have the list for you! Each of the games on this list have fantastic stories and characters, but without the long gameplay hours of other otome game releases! So, with the weekend right around the corner, consider adding some of these games to your library!
From mafiosos to ayakashi to childhood friends, otome games give us a chance to romance a wide range of characters… BUT, never in my life did I ever think that I would ever come across a game where I would get the chance to romance monks. And then, here comes YETU Games with Lost in Secular Love to fill that void and not gonna lie, I didn’t know what to expect.
But, oh no, these aren’t just you’re regular pious monks who sit around and read scripture, nah, these monks are down to f*ck. Yeah, you read that right–a game about monks that don’t mind getting a bit frisky and boy do they ever! This game gets pretty steamy, so prepare your hearts!
