Variable Barricade (Spoiler Free Review) – First Impressions

In 2020, Aksys Games announced three new otome game localizations for 2021 and of the three titles, rom-com, Variable Barricade is the game the otome community has most been looking forward to playing. Unfortunately while the other 2020 announcements made their debut last year, VariBari‘s localization was pushed back to to this year. Well it’s 2022 and while the game doesn’t come out until February 24th, thanks to the folks at Aksys Games, I’ve had the chance to play the game early and lets just say I have some thoughts!

I’m still playing the game (I’ve completed the common route and I’m partway through my first route), so there won’t be any spoilers (yay!). These are just my first impressions of the game before I get in too deep~
