Thrifty Gaming: Games That Won’t Blow Your Budget #1

Hello all you wonderful Heroes and Travelers, it’s the start of a new year and with it comes a brand new post series!! Yes, ladies and gents, you read that right… this post is the inaugural post in my brand new Thrifty Gamer series! What is the Thrifty Gamer series? Well, I’m glad you asked!! 😉

So, not too long ago, I was a poor college student, struggling to make ends meet, with the cost of books, my meager retail slave wages were barely enough for me to break even at the end of each month… Then, I discovered the wonderful world of otome games and that just blew my budget clean out of the window! I did what I could to balance my living expenses with the cost of maintaining my new hobby, but I still found myself in a bit of a pickle…

But, with all the flashy big name commercial releases dangling in front of our faces all of the time, some of the thriftier titles just fall through the cracks… So, I came up with an idea, it’s positively brilliant really, I’m surprised I never thought of it before… *ahem* Why not create a weekly list of recommended games for otome gamers on a budget?! A go to list of games, for folks that want to experience the wonderful world of otome games without breaking the bank, because if it’s a choice between food and games… food will always win!!

So every Thursday from now until it gets to be too much, I will spotlight three otome games/visual novels $10 or less (does not include limited time offers and sale items). Posts 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!!
