Sifting Thyme Otome Review – Stir Up Some Romance

Sifting Thyme is a cooking themed mobile otome game developed by indie studio, Nochi Studios. In the game you play as the newest transfer student at a prestigious culinary academy. Immerse yourself in a world of food as you start out your culinary journey—learn about the food industry, while getting to know your talented classmates. The game was originally released episodically, with new chapters being released monthly. Earlier this month the final chapter was released, and I figured now was the perfect time to review the whole game! 

Cute boys and good food… what’s not to love? If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I’ve kind of shied away from mobile games in recent years—mobile games can take up a LOT of space on my phone. But, Sifting Thyme is such a sweet and chill game, it was totally worth the download.

Behind the Games – Interview with Nochi Studios

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.

This time around, I had the chance to chat with members of Nochi Studios, the team behind the mobile otome game Sifting Thyme and the upcoming magitech isekai romance game Somnium Eleven.

Nochi Studios is a female-founded and run indie game studio based in Midwest, USA. The studio started as a two-woman team and has recently grown to include six dedicated members. Their first commercial release Sifting Thyme is a food themed mobile otome that is current being released episodically. In the game, you play as the newest transfer student at Lincoln Culinary Academy, a private culinary school and the perfect place to start your path towards finding your culinary calling. Immerse yourself in the vibrant world of food, business, and innovation throughout your school adventures. It’s a cute game that will definitely awaken your  inner foodie

Their second title, Somnium Eleven is currently on the crowd-funding site, Kickstarter, and is described by the team as being a “magitech isekai” visual novel. The upcoming game also boasts a more immersive gaming experience that includes mini games, stats raising, and social media management. I’m definitely looking forward to the upcoming release and I am super excited to get the opportunity to some of the members of the Nochi Studios team! Big thank you to Natalie and Alexandra for agreeing to let me pick their brain a bit… and without further ado, let’s turn things over to them…
