Hey Blerdy Tribe, it’s Valentines Day or as some like to call it, Singles Awareness Day–and whether you’re in an “entanglement”, going stag, or cozying up with your significant other, I hope your day is full of LOVE. Been awhile since I even acknowledged the unofficial holiday here on Blerdy Otome, but this year I wanted to do something special! So this year, I’m sharing a list of otome guys I wouldn’t mind spending some time with on Valentines Day! Gonna shake things up by including LIs from otome games AND indie otome, because why limit myself?!Continue reading “Valentine’s Day with Bae – Otome Boys to Spend V-Day With”
Hey Hey Blerdy Tribe, I’m back with another Behind the Games post! For those of you just joining the party, Behind the Games is a segment where I interview the folks ‘behind the games’ I review. Giving you guys a chance to get to know the developers that spend so much time carefully crafting the games you enjoy.
Last time, I spoke with members of Fiction Factory Games—the studio behind the arcade themed visual novel Arcade Spirits. This time around I had the chance to chat with members of Perfect Garbage Studios, the folks behind Love Shore.
Perfect Garbage Studios is a diverse indie game studio based in Chicago, though many of the team’s members come from all over the globe. Founded in 2019, Perfect Garbage Studios strives to tell stories that center around LGBT and POC characters. They strive to explore genres and stories that will appeal to all gamers. The team is currently working on their first game, Love Shore—a cyberpunk adventure visual novel. There is definitely some good things coming from the studio in the near future, so I’m super excited to have gotten the opportunity to sit down and chat with the studio’s co-founder and narrative director, Emmett!
Hey Hey Blerdy Tribe! I announced back in August 2020 that I’d branched out a bit from just writing reviews and jumped into a podcast with ani-bloggers/YouToubers Lita Kino and Shay Taree called the Fangirl Trash Can Podcast!! And we’ve been having a blast! We just dropped our 3rd episode: “Have a Seat at the Dislike Table” where we talk about the anime series and games we’re just not that into~ So give us a listen, you’re bound to have a great time!!
Have A Seat At The Dislike Table #3 – Fangirl Trash Can Podcast
As always, I had a blast chatting with Shay and Lita and I can’t wait to get into even more fangirl hijinks in the future~

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.
