My Dangerous Life is a boys love dating sim, that was originally released by Hituzigumo in 2018 on mobile as He and My Dangerous Life. The game follows a college student named Hinata who travels to New York to fulfill his life-long dream of studying abroad. His dream becomes a nightmare when in the span of one day, he is swindled out of his apartment and a stranger steals his identity to enroll at his university. At a loss for what to do, Hinata is approached by a group of handsome men who offer to help him by giving him a place to stay at their shared apartment…and so begins his dangerous new life in the Big city. The game was panned for it’s subpar translation… among other things, and not wanting to let such a “phenomenal” story go to waste, the powers that be teamed up with Giiku Games to overhaul the localization for a Steam release.
Full disclosure, I bought this game without having read the synopsis or the character bios–I saw the pretty art, the BL tag, and that it was on sale for $9.09 (the perfect alignment for an impulse buyer, such as myself) and I threw my money down. So, I didn’t vet this game before buying and surprise, surprise, this game isn’t exactly “high art”, but there is some enjoyment to be had from a “bad” game and My Dangerous Life is a trainwreck I just can’t help but watch…
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!
I picked up a copy of this game during the last big Steam sale and like most games I buy, I promptly forgot all about it. But, fittingly it was an odd twist of fate that prompted me to “rescue” WILL: A Wonderful World from the dusty recesses of my backlog and I am so glad that I did! From the moment I started the game all the way to the very end, this game is one HELL of a wild ride. High school students in love, kung fu fighting police detectives, assassins, and even a scrappy alley cat make up the game’s eclectic cast of characters and you play as an amnesiac god who controls all of their fates with the flick of a pen.
