[Bite- Sized Review] The Charming Empire was kind of DULL

Hey guys! I know I’ve been kind of silent lately (I’ve been making the best of my extended time at home), but this past weekend I finally got around to playing The Charming Empire and let’s just say it left much to be desired. I’m, no stranger to Dogenzaka Labs and their rather… interesting otome game localizations. I played both Men of Yoshiwara games, and while I find them entertaining, they have many, many flaws. I’ve also played a few of their mobile releases, which are best enjoyed after a few glasses of wine…

For those of you that don’t know, Dogenzaka Labs has been the main localizing company for most of D3 Publisher’s English otome releases and I’m gonna be real with you guys they’re all pretty basic. The Men of Yoshiwara is by and large the best of the bunch, and over the years has garnered quite the fanbase in the west, however, they’re not what I’d call top tier otome. They’re entertaining, sure, but there’s just a little something missing that keeps them from being truly “great”.

Charming Epire 1

Most Dogenzaka Labs games deliver a very surface level otome gaming experience, with characters and stories that while enjoyable, are largely forgettable. If you look at their games on Steam, aside from Yoshiwara, you’ll find that most have pretty mixed reviews from fans. Most fans know to set the bar fairly low before diving into another one of their games, so, I didn’t go into Charming Empire expecting this to be on par with any of the Otomate/Idea Factory releases. However, I was still pleasantly surprised by how completely underwhelming this game was as a whole.

Game Details

  • Available for Steam, Nintendo Switch
  • Price: $29.99 USD
  • 5 pursuable male characters
  • Gameplay Length: 2-10 hours
  • Full Japanese Voice Acting

Let’s Show Our Support for My Magical Demon Lover: A BL Dating Sim

Hey hey Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs, it’s been a LOOOOONG time since I wrote one of these (bear with me while I get back into the swing of things), but there’s a new crowd funding campaign over on Indiegogo for an upcoming BL dating sim, My Magical Demon Lover from Yaoi Press Games.

For those of you new, here, Let’s Show Our Support posts highlight current crowdfunding campaigns for indie games (usually VNs and OELVNs). I give you guys the basic rundown of the game and the perks of supporting the game’s campaign, as well as links to all the relevant game related pages and sites.

Y’all know how I feel about BL games, so when Yamila emailed me about the game, I knew I just had to whip something up! The Yaoi Press team is currently looking to raise funding to help with the current production schedule and to expand on the content of the game.

Bite Sized Reviews- Dream Daddy

The first post of the year and it’s a review of Game Grumps’ Dream Daddy. Right, so the the long and short of it; you get to date DILFs… except Brian… homeboy is a dad I don’t want to f***. Now, I’m going to be honest, I only bought this game for the LOL’s… I did not take this game seriously going in, I mean come on, it’s a game about dating single dads. So, I went in expecting the game to be on par with Usaya Co.’s My Horse Prince, so color me surprised when Dream Daddy actually managed to deliver some rather solid gameplay (and a hefty amount of eye roll inducing dad jokes).

Let’s Show Our Support for “Chess of Blades” A BL Visual Novel (Relaunched)!!

Edit (6/29): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal. The final funding amount was $6,738 with 234 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of October/November 2017!

I am super late with this post, I seriously meant to have it up weeks ago, but better late than never, am I right? Back in March Argent Games launched a Kickstarter campaign for their second BL visual novel Chess of Blades, however they were unable to raise the necessary funding by their April deadline… so, they took a step back to reevaluated the project and I am happy to say that they are giving Kickstarter another go!! So, if you missed out on supporting the first campaign now is the time to show your support!!

In the time between the first campaign and the current one, Argent Games has been hard at work bringing polishing Chess of Blades into something spectacular! New characters, improved artwork and more await in this upcoming BL title!

[First Thoughts] Backstage Pass

Alright, so this is another game that has been sitting in my backlog for way too long. But, since my office was closed for Spring Break  I figured now was a good time as ever to pull this game out of the abyss and give it a play… I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with stats raiser games, on one hand… nah, I’m not even going to try and sugar coat it! Stats raiser games can be a pain in the ass, plain and simple, and I have heard some wonderful stories about the stats raising in SakeVisual’s Backstage Pass, that made me very reluctant to start it…

Backstage Pass  was released twice, the first being the early access beta (2014), which is what I originally bought and never played, and the second being the final completed version of the game which was released August 2016 for PC (Windows, Linux, Mac) and Steam. The game features full English voice acting and at a cool $29.99, I’d say that’s a fair price to pay for the amount of content the game offers.

**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to SakeVisual. Please if you are interested in the game, purchase the game either through the official site or through Steam!!

[Not Funded] Let’s Show Our Support for Chess of Blades A BL Visual Novel

Edit (4/5): The Kickstarter for this game failed to achieve the necessary funds by the deadline. Despite not reaching their goal, Argent Games will continue to work on the game!

Hey hey guys I know it’s been awhile since my last Kickstarter post, life has been throwing me curve balls left and right. But, I’m back again with another Kickstarter campaign, this time for the upcoming Boys Love romance visual novel, Chess of Blades from indie game developers, Argent Games!!

This is Argent Games’s second title in the span of a year and I for one am just happy to see developers willing to create more BL titles! There is definitely a market for BL games and Chess of Blades promises to be a welcome edition to the community! So, I’m definitely going to keep a close eye on this game’s progress.

[Guest Blogger] Jilted: Men of Yoshiwara – Hayabusa | Main Story Review

Hello Heroes and Travelers, today we have a special guest post from my blogging buddy and newest otoge recruit, Hazel from over at Archi-Anime!! This is her first ever otome game review and I am so happy that I was able to drag her into otoge hell with me! *rubs hands together* So join me in welcoming her to Nice Job Breaking It, Hero and without further ado, I’m gonna turn things over to Hazel!!


Good afternoon bloggers! Hazelyn here from the anime blog Archi-Anime. Today Naja and I are bringing you a very special collaboration post! This will be my first Otome game review ever, and a very first collaboration post. Hooray for firsts! I’m a bit late to the otome game, but hey, better late than never!

A few months ago I befriended Naja, whom as of late has become a really good friend of mine, I would like to say! I call her the otome queen and my Otome/BL Senpai. I have much to learn, and she has already dragged me down into backlog hell with the amount of games that must are to be played.

I’ve always wanted to write a review of an otome game, so when Naja senpai approached me to write a collaboration on a route I was both ecstatic and flattered she wanted to do this. She had already gotten me hooked onto Voltage games (bye money!) and I was still fairly a n00b to otome. So far I’ve been spoiled with a lot of great routes! So we decided to try a game neither of us had barely any experience with. I had played one route on the mobile version (Iroha), but I ended up buying it on steam during the Winter Steam Sale because it was more cost-efficient than paying per route.

Men of Yoshiwara.pngThe game we ended up choosing was The Men of Yoshiwara: Kikuya. There are a total of two Men of Yoshiwara games, the other being The Men of Yoshiwara: Oghiya, in which our MC is vastly different-but more on the Kikuya version of her later.

So this game was sitting in my backlog for ages before I picked it up and I am ashamed to admit that it took me this long to play through it and to finally start on these reviews! First up is the friendly and outgoing, phoenix, Shou Hatori! If you want a more general overview of the game, click HERE to read my first impressions about the game!

**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to Aeon Dream Studios. Please if you are interested in the game, purchase the game either through itch.io or through Steam!!

Upon it’s release the game will be available for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and Steam for ONLY $12.99.

There’s less than a week until the game’s official release on Janurary 30th, so I figured it was high time I wrote a review of the demo, just in case any of you guys are still on the fence about the game! The demo covers about thirty minutes to and hour of gameplay for each of the potential love interests and includes some interesting features and extra content.

Wicked Love- Demo Review

There was a bit of controversy surrounding this game and the developer. After receiving the funds from the Kickstarter campaign the creator stopped responding to backer messages and took down all of the sites associated with the project. Wicked Love is believed to permanently canceled. 

Wicked Love is an upcoming GxB/GxG supernatural romance visual novel from indie English developers Spirit Kinder Games. The game blends elements of various underworld mythos with that of the biblical seven deadly sins, for a wholly unique story of love, desire, and adventure.  Upon it’s release the game will be available for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Steam, however for the time being the demo is only available for Windows. The demo is pretty short covering roughly 30 minutes of gameplay.

wicked lovers cg 1.png

So this is a special collaboration demo review that I’m doing with my bestie, Bishie! She runs a phenomenal Let’s Play channel over on YouTube and in honor of her reaching 100+ subscribers, we decided to do double reviews… She’d do an LP on YouTube and I’d write a review over here on WordPress, you can watch her LP for Wicked Love, HERE! It’s so good, her voices are perfect for all of the characters, so definitely check that out!! So with out further ado, my review of the demo!!

[Funded] Let’s Show Our Support for Mystic Destinies: Echoes

Edit (2/6): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal. The final funding amount was $8,033 with 269 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of TBA! 

It’s 2017 and with it comes the promise of new games and brand new Kickstarter campaigns!! If you all will remember back to September when I covered Aeon Dream Studio’s KS campaign for their Deluxe Edition of their debut supernatural romance visual novel, Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons, I mentioned that they were also planning on launching a KS campaign for a sequel called, Mystic Destinies: Echoes. Well I am excited to announce that today marks the first day of the campaign!!

mde

I absolutely LOVE Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons, and I have been stalking ADS relentlessly on social media for months since they first announced their plans to write a sequel! I am super stoked for this game because not only does it let you romance the villains from MDSOA, but it also features a gorgeous sun kissed protagonist!!

[First Thoughts] This World Unknown

So with all of the Liar! Uncover the Truth reviews I’ve been writing lately, it might be hard to believe that I’ve also been playing another game… Yup, I have been playing Ebi-Hime‘s most recent commercial visual novel, This World Unknown! Shocking, I know, Liar! has literally been taking up all of my time lately, but in between Liars I have been slowly (I mean snail’s pace slow) making my way through this game! First, let me clarify that I’ve only managed to make it through one route… ya’ll, this game is much more time consuming than I originally anticipated… I started this game at the beginning of October and it is now  November and I’ve only completed one route!

When I first saw this game I thought this would be a cute, short game to kill time with while I figured out what my next big game would be after Norn9. But, one thing lead to another and Norn9 was put on an indefinite hold and this game was put on the back burner after I got hooked on Liar! Well, now that I’m almost done with Liar! I’ve been able to devote more time to TWU, but not as much as I would have liked especially now that I’ve started working… *sigh* The full game review is still a little ways off, but I still wanted to get my thoughts on the game out there before I get too busy or I get distracted by another game again….

**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to ebi-hime and Sekai Project. Please if you are interested in the game, purchase the game either through itch.io or through Steam for ONLY $7.99!!

Let’s Show Our Support for Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons Deluxe Edition/ MD: Echoes

Edit (10/12): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal for the MDSOA: Deluxe Edition, but the campaign did not raise enough for the MD: Echoes stretch goal. The final funding amount was $13,062 with 251 backers! The Deluxe Edition has a tentative release date of early 2017!  

I know it’s been awhile since my last Kickstarter campaign post, but I was super busy with real life issues when this Kickstarter campaign started up. On top of that, I was a little on the fence about how exactly I was going to write this up, as it is a dual project Kickstarter. From what I gathered, Aeon Dream Studios is attempting to raise funding for a deluxe edition of their current project Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons. The deluxe edition will feature added bonuses such as additional stories, improvements to Shou’s route, improved backgrounds, POV stories and much more!

Early on in the campaign the funding goal for the deluxe edition was reached! So, right about now you guys are wondering why you should fund this campaign if the devs already reached the goal for Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeon- Deluxe Edition? Well that brings me to part two of the campaign… the sequel to MDSOA, Mystic Destinies: Echoes!

Sentimental Trickster- Demo Review

A few weeks ago, Justyna Pustelnik contacted me via Twitter about maybe taking a look at the demo for her upcoming BL visual novel, Sentimental Trickster. However, when I received the request I was wrapping up the 30 Day Anime Challenge (and in need of a break), so I wasn’t able to play the demo right away. But, I was able to talk with Justyna through Twitter and after reviewing the Kickstarter campaign, I was able to bang out a Kickstarter Support post for the game.

I originally planned on getting back to the demo after my Blogging Vacation, but one thing led to another and the demo ended up further down on my To Do List than I would have hoped… forgive me! So, I know this is late, but better late than never… right? So, with the Kickstarter winding down, I figured the time was ripe for a demo review in order to generate more buzz for the game as it nears its final days!

[Funded]Support Sentimental Trickster an English BL Visual Novel

Edit (8/30): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal and two of the stretch goals. The final funding amount was $9,036 with 328 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of March 2017!  

I am super late with this, but, about a week ago an indie game developer actually reached out to me on twitter about their new 18+ BL visual novel, Sentimental Trickster! As you all know I am a lover of all things BL, so best believe I was over the moon to hear about another indie BL visual novel!!!

It’s taken me awhile, but I finally got around to playing the demo and I can’t wait to see the final product!! The game is the brain child of one woman, so everything you see in the demo was put together by one person! Talk about dedication!

[News] Upcoming Games from MangaGamer and Aksys

Okay, first I want to apologize for being late with this post! I am currently out of town for the holiday weekend and there is no wifi where I’m at… so I am literally reliving my childhood. It also seems like every time there is a big announcement in the otome community,  I’m away on vacation or something…

Mind you all, I’m still on vacation…I am literally writing this from my Galaxy S7. So forgive me for a few errors/weirdness, as it is hard to post from this thing and I avoid it when I can!

[Full Game Review] English Otome- Seduce Me 2: The Demon War

Seduce Me 2: The Demon War, like its predecessor, is a fully voiced, supernatural romance visual novel produced by Seraphim Entertainment and created by Michaela Laws. The original voice cast is back and in full form, their vocal talents shine as they give their all in a series of heart wrenching and emotional performances. In addition to the stellar voice cast, Seduce Me 2 (SM2) boasts a few new features which work together to bring the wonderful story started in Seduce Me (SM) to a satisfying and beautiful close. The five incubi and Diana the succubus are back, each with their own routes, however unlike SM, the romance routes feature both Good Endings and Bad Endings. The additional branching storyline, drills home the game’s message of fate and the burden choices have on destiny. As you play the choices become more difficult, as the player is forced to decide whether to selfishly cling to their love for their incubi or to secede their happiness for the greater good. In the end no matter what you choose, someone has to suffer. This game features some difficult topics, which may not be suitable for some audiences.

Like with the first game all sex scenes are optional.You can purchase the game on itch.io, HERE or on Steam, HERE.

**So the disclaimer… I don’t own these images or characters, they belong to Michaela Laws and Seraphim Entertainment. On that note, there will be some semi-NSFW images in this post, but no private areas will be shown, just some really suggestive angles. The thoughts and opinions presented in this post are my own, it’s fine if you don’t agree with me, but be respectful when commenting (I’m open to all opinions here).

[Full Game Review] English Otome-Seduce Me

 

This is one of those games that I absolutely enjoyed playing, but never really got around to writing a review for…So, now that I have some free time and in honor of the sequel coming out on May 20th on Steam, (I got the game from itch.io, so I have to wait until June 20th) I decided to go back and play the game that started it all! So whether you’ve already played this game and are in need of a refresher before Seduce Me 2 is released, or someone new to the game, you’ve definitely come to the right place!

Released in 2015, Seduce Me is a fully voiced PC English visual novel, produced by Seraphim Entertainment and created by Michaela Laws.  First, I can’t tell you how awesome and rare it is for a FREE indie English otome game like Seduce Me to have a full voice cast…and for said voice cast to be good too! It’s like winning the lotto right after you lose your job, not necessarily impossible, but unlikely as hell!
