Even if Tempest Dawning Connections First Impressions Review – Happily Ever After Ain’t Always Easy

Even if Tempest Dawning Connections, the follow up to 2022’s dark fantasy otome game, Even if Tempest is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Voltage Inc. really went above and beyond with their first console exclusive title, and the fandom is chomping at the bit to see how things are going for Anastasia and the rest of the gang after the tumultuous events of the first game.

In this sequel we follow Anastasia and the LIs as they embark on their happily ever after. Though, for some the road to happiness does come with a few twists and turns. Dawning Connections is everything we’ve wanted an more—offering a much lighter experience than the first game (though if you want a bit of drama there is plenty of that too).
