Here I am once again using all of my years of otome related experience to ask the hard hitting questions others are afraid to ask! This is quality stuff right here, carefully crafted after not one, but two glasses of really good red wine and an afternoon of playing OZMAFIA.
This is the post that no one asked for, but I felt compelled to write down. I could have easily used this time to tackle my neglected backlog or catching up on game requests, but I felt that a Fuck, Marry, Kill post was exactly what the world needed right now. For those of you that didn’t play this game as a kid, the basic premise is this:
One person poses three names of people known to someone else (either people known in their personal lives or of celebrities). The other person then has to decide which of the three they would kiss (or fuck, in more mature versions of the game… like this one), which one they would marry, and which one they would kill.
I’m cutting the middle man and just using the love interest lineup from otome games to answer three sacred, age old questions— Which otome guy would I fuck? Which otome guy would I marry? Which otome guy would I kill? The first game on the chopping block is Star Crossed Myth… because I’ve played all the routes.
Hello all you wonderful Heroes and Travelers, it’s Thrifty Thursday and that means another Thrifty Gaming, 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!!

I don’t know what made me buy Tauxolouve’s main story, since I wasn’t remotely interested in the guy at all… Mature playboys just aren’t my type at all, but there I was playing his route until the butt crack of dawn, and not only did I enjoy it… I found myself falling hard for the guy!
Tauxolouve is the god of Sagittarius and while outwardly he’s a bit of a tease, the real Tauxolouve is much more compassionate and steadfast than folks give him credit for. Sure he talks a big game, but he never actually acts on any of the suggestive things he says. Is he really a womanizer like everyone says, or is it all just an act?
I have been sucked into Voltage Hell yet again… Right after I finished writing my review for Dui, Voltage up and released the main story and epilogue for yet another Department of Punishments god, Krioff. And we all know that I’m a fan of the Punishments gods, so without any hesitation I dropped the $3.99 on Krioff’s main story…
Krioff is the stoic god of Aries and despite his rather…um, cold personality, he is by far one of the kindest gods in the Department of Punishments. Don’t get me wrong, he’s no Dui, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a big ‘ol softie underneath all the thorns! Plus, I think Krioff is my ideal god… I kind of broke the Ending Meter with all the right Blessed End choices on my first playthrough lol…
Dui won the poll so I’m writing the review! Rejoice, because without the poll I probably would have never gotten around to play this route in Star Crossed Myth… I know I’m going to get some flack for this, but I had zero interest in ever playing this route…ever. Call me shallow or superficial, but Dui just looked so boring. So, when you guys voted for him to be my next voltage route, I was a little disappointed, but that was before I played this amazing route!
Dui is the sweet as pie, cherry loving god of Gemini who was branded with his mark of sin after killing a fellow god. But, despite the severity of his crimes, Dui isn’t a bad guy, he’s an absolute dream with a bit of a dark side…
I have a confession to make, I was never interested in Ichthys’ route in Star Crossed Myth. Happy-go-lucky, prankster types aren’t my favorite characters. But, after playing through Ichthys’s Main Story, I’m glad I gave this silly guy a chance. Ichthys is the god of Pisces, and the god that just doesn’t know when to quit. Despite being harmless his jokes and pranks tend to incur the ire of those around him. But, there is more to his pranks than just having a good time. There’s something sad about this fun loving god.
For my first route in Star Crossed Myth Department of Wishes, I had high hopes for Aigonorus. He is the god of Capricorn, in the Department of Wishes. I know I say this every time. But I was not expecting to like Aigonorus as much as I did. Especially after someone on Tumblr compared him to Sasuke Uchiha! In truth, Aigonorus is probably closest to Shikamaru, as both characters possess an almost superhuman level of apathy. In the past I’ve mostly stuck to the gods from the Department of Punishments. So I’m excited to finally play one of the Department of Wishes routes.
Voltage Inc has certainly come up with so many amazing games, these are the cream of the crop the games I could play over and over again without getting bored. This is part two of a suggested post series, for the first part go, HERE. So this was a hard list to come up with, I enjoy different aspects of each and every Voltage Inc game for different reasons. These games are on here because of my feelings about the entire game, and in no way a reflection of the individual characters in the game.
Before you all start grabbing your torches and pitchforks, this list is purely my opinion…You are more than welcome to agree or disagree with me if you want, by all means leave a comment and suggest better voltage games. So without further ado here we go: My Top 5 “Best” Voltage Inc Games.
