Regular retail $34.99! The game is only available in English for the Steam client, so you will need to create an account to play it!

Edit: In October of 2016 Black Monkey Pro disbanded, so Bacchikoiand all of their other content is no longer available for purchase, but feel free to still give this review a read!
So, I know some of you are wondering how in the world am I going to review an expansion pack, since it’s not really a game. Well, to that I say, *ahem* the Bacchikoi Expansion Pack is really just an overpriced fandisk, so I had no problem eking out a review and for what I paid for it, you better believe I’m writing a review! This game cost about as much as some real games…
I must be a glutton for punishment, because here I am talking about yet another Black Monkey Pro title, at least this time, it’s an expansion pack and not a full game… thank God! I don’t think I could actually put up with another BMP game, I just can’t… If you don’t remember how I felt about the previous Black Monkey Pro games I highly suggest reading my reviews for Sleepoverand Bacchikoiand relive all the magic and wonder that is Black Monkey Pro, but forewarning those are NSFW reviews!
*Disclaimer: I don’t own the images used in this review, all CGs and screenshots belong to Black Monkey. Since this game is NSFW there will be some NSFW images after this point. I tried my best to hide some of the naughty bits, but… *shrugs* you’ve been warned!
Hey, hey all you wonderful Heroes and Travelers out there it’s Monday, and that means another Melanin Monday post!! For those of you just joining us, Melanin Monday is a bi-weekly post series that I started for Black History Month, where I talk about Black and Brown skinned characters in anime, manga, video games, etc., but you guys loved it so much I decided to continue it!
Since this is an otome game blog, I figured at least one of these Melanin Monday posts should be about Black and brown characters in otome games/visual novels. So I compiled a list of games that featured characters with darker skin tones. This isn’t a comprehensive list of every game with dark skinned characters, but it does the trick for now. Also, most of these titles are English language visual novels since they tend to feature more characters of color than Japanese otome games… but, that’s a discussion for another day.
Hello all you wonderful Heroes and Travelers, it’s Thrifty Thursday and that means another Thrifty Gamer, the weekly post series where I spotlight three otome games/visual novels for gamers on a budget. Whatever your financial situation, I’m here to bring you affordable games that won’t break the bank!! All of the games on this list are $10 or less (does not include limited time offers and sale items), so no more weepy wallets!
This week’s post will include links to the games and a brief synopsis, but let me stress that these are not reviews, but recommendations… so your mileage may vary! Now that that’s out of the way lets get on to this week’s list!!
Edit (4/6): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal. The final funding amount was $7,040 with 364 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of Late 2017!
Hey hey guys I’m back with yet another Kickstarter campaign, that I stumbled upon last week, and while this isn’t just a visual novel in the traditional sense, the unique LGBTQ themed story definitely reflects the ideals and values of the developers! I’m talking about the upcoming PC LGBTQ themed visual novel/resource management game Your Royal Gayness from Lizard Hazard Games!
I’m not going to lie, the title is really what first caught my attention, and I’m glad it did, this looks like it’s going to be a fun game. And as I’ve said before, I’m excited to see another LGBTQ game in development, we need more unique titles like this on the market!
Blerdy Otome is an otome games and visual novel review site that runs on Black Girl Magic and Dreams. While I mostly focus on romance themed games, I’ve been known to cover a wide range of nerdy and otaku themed topics.
So, step right up and prepare your heart! Let’s talk about otome games!!
