Hey hey guys I’m back with yet another Crowdfunding campaign! This time around, I’m spotlighting SweetChiel’s upcomingfantasy romance visual novel, Nusantara: Bermuda Triangle, the successor to their 2015 visual novel, Nusantara: Legend of the Winged Ones. While the game isn’t a sequel it does take place in the same universe as its predecessor, with a brand new heroine and adventure for players to enjoy!
Fans of the first game will be sure to love this new edition to the Nusantara universe, while new fans will definitely find something fun to add to their games collection.
Edit (6/29): The Kickstarter for this game failed to achieve the necessary funds by the deadline. Production of the game is on hold until the developers feel that there is a viable market for it.
Hey hey guys I’m back with yet another Kickstarter campaign! This time around, I’m spotlighting theupcoming dating sim, Two Scoops. This game is a joint collaboration between Thumb Cramps and Pillowfight and follows an unnamed protagonist as she adjusts to her new job at a local ice cream shop and maybe find love along the way…
I am always excited to see games that break the mold with their characters and Two Scoops does that and more. With a diverse cast of characters and love interests from a wide range of backgrounds and genders, this promises to be fresh new title that is bound to appeal to a wide range of players.
Edit (6/29): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal. The final funding amount was $4,112 with 158 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of Summer 2017!
Hey hey guys I’m back with yet another Kickstarter campaign! This time around, I’m spotlighting GB Patch’s upcoming comedy dating sim, XOXO Droplets. I have been following this game for awhile, but in order to reach a larger audience GB Patch wants to create a free to play version of the game, so, they created this KS campaign to help raise funds.
This game is in the final stages of development and the fact that GB Patch is willing to release both a free and paid version of the game is awesome!
The Crossroads is a short GxB supernatural romance visual novel created by Seraphinite for the one month gamejam, NaNoRenO 2017. This is a name your own price game and is playable on Windows and Mac operating systems. The game is roughly an hour long, with two male love interests and a total of three endings.
The Crossroads tells the story of a young woman (name changeable) who is hired to house sit a large mansion in the country after losing her job and her apartment. She hopes to take the time away to get her life together, that is until she encounters two very handsome men working on the property. But all is not what it seems at the house, both men are hiding something that will change her life forever.
Since developers only have a month to create these games, I will be a bit more forgiving of these titles’s shortcomings, however, that doesn’t mean I won’t give you guys my honest opinion in each review.
I have been waiting for this game for months since the Kickstarter campaign wrapped up last September and the day is finally here!! Today marks the official release of Dicesuki Games’s second visual novel, Cinderella Phenomenon! The game is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux and can be downloaded for free from itch.io, HERE!

Edit (2/6): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal. The final funding amount was $3,192 with 149 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of Spring 2017!
So, I came across this Kickstarter the other day, but it wasn’t until my buddy, Bishie hit me up about doing a collaboration demo review that I really started looking into Spirit Kinder Games’s upcoming supernatural romance, Wicked Love! I’m late, I know, it’s unavoidable, but better late than never!
This is the second crowd funding campaign for Wicked Love and it looks like the second times’s the charm, as they have already reached their funding goal and then some! This is a gorgeous game with a rather unique premise, that sets it apart from other supernatural romance games on the market!
This post has been a work in progress for over a year, but I could never quite work out how write it out, until the other day when I went to play a game in my backlog and I actually groaned… can you believe that?!
Lately, I’ve been so caught up with all the schedules and reviews, that I’ve kind of lost sight of why I started this blog in the first place: because I love otome games and I want to share that love with the world. Ha ha, it sounds silly when I write it out like that, but it’s been a long time since I really, truly enjoyed playing a game. It’s gotten to be such a chore really, buying games, playing them, writing the reviews, editing… somewhere along the way, playing otome games became a routine… *shudders* it became work and that’s something I never wanted to happen! Sure there have been games that I genuinely liked playing, in fact I played a game the other day that brought back a little of that old spark, but the magic that I had when I first started playing otome games has been gone for a little while now. So, it’s high time I reminded myself why I fell in love with otome games in the first place, before I wind up resenting them altogether.
Let me warn you guys now, this post is more for me than it is for you guys, I really needed to remember what it was that drew me to otoges. So this won’t be one of those pretty posts that I fuss over endlessly until the wording is just right and expect a lot of “…” so if you’re still with me, I want to write about how I got into otome games…
Edit (1/7): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal. The final funding amount was $ 8,033 with 143 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of Spring 2017!
Okay, so I’m a day late, but I was experiencing some technical difficulties… *ahem* I am excited to bring you all a very special Kickstarter Campaign for Precatio’s upcoming otome game, Kokorogarwari!
I have been acquainted with one of Precatio’s members, the lovely Laramie Castiel for a while now (she runs an otome blog, Purple Nurple Wonderland), so I’ve been following this game’s progress almost since the beginning! I fell in love with the beautiful artwork, but I stayed for the intriguing premise and character descriptions. This promises to be a fabulous otome game and I can’t wait to get my hands on it when it is released!!
This game was originally on my Summer Game Playlist, but one thing led to another and I never got around to actually playing it before the end of the summer. If I’m being honest, I never intended to get through that list in the first place since I have a habit of getting distracted by new games easily… *cough* Liar Uncover the Truth *cough* So, now that I’ve finished wallowing in mobile otoge hell, I’ve finally decided to revisit some of the games from my poor neglected backlog (so expect many more First Thoughts posts in the coming days and weeks). The first game on the agenda is Aeon Dream Studios’s (aka Star Maiden Games) debut title, Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons.
Okay, so first things first, Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons was released back in February and while the prologue and the first chapters of each route are free, the Main Stories and Epilogues are $4.99 and $1.99 respectively. There are five romanceable characters, but as of this post only three guys have been released (number four, Takumi will be released later on this month)…
