Les Fleursword – review

Les Fleursword is an otome game for PC you can get from Steam. Let me start this by saying that on Steam the review is mostly negative (as of posting this review) and… I guess it does kinda deserve that rating. Not that the story/game was bad, just… the translation quality was pretty bad. It’s like someone just put through all of the games’ text through Google translate and slotted it back into the game. I still found it understandable though… you just need to do some mental gymnastics.

Having that said, the game was pretty cheap – and my tolerance level goes in inverse proportion to a game’s price. Given that this game was only around ~$2, my tolerance level for this game was accordingly pretty high. High enough I didn’t actually mind sitting through the game reading that translation…



Once Upon a Hallow’s Eve – review

Once Upon a Hallow’s Eve is a free, short game you can download from Steam or itch.io.  It’s a game with a Halloween theme, so it felt rather amusing to play this in January.

The game is pretty short (2-3 hours), so this is also a short review.


Magical Eyes – Red is for Anguish – review

Title Screen

Magical Eyes – Red is for Anguish is a game by Pomera Studios and licensed in English by Fruitbat Factory. It’s a mystery/supernatural VN with a dash of action, so if you’re looking for boobs or romance this is not the game for you. As far as a mystery VN went I liked this, and am looking forward to the next game in the series (which apparently is still in development). It’s available via Steam, although I bought mine off Humble Bundle (because I have a thing for supporting DRM-free).


Seven Boys 2 – review

Title ScreenHappy New Year! …it is somewhat embarrassing to note that I last updated this blog in 2016… but then again, writing review was beginning to feel like a chore so I just kinda stopped. …plus I picked up a new hobby so all my money kinda goes into the new hobby ( ̄▽ ̄*)ゞ I took some time off work so I was able to sit down and just… played games. Here’s one of them, which I bought from Steam end of year sale for U$0.55. At that price, I decided, ehhh, why not. Steam told me I had about ~10 hours in the game – for the price, I was pretty happy with it.

If you need a guide, I used this one (the guide skipped the common route and started from the individual routes). More

How To Take Off Your Mask – review

20160402195345_1This game was part of a recent IndieGala bundle – I’m glad it was included because I would not had thought to try this game otherwise due to the price ($15). I was looking for something cute and simple and this seemed to fit the bill. It’s also available on Steam.

The game is in English, although it’s voiced in Japanese… the screenshots from the official site is in Japanese but I couldn’t find the option anywhere to change the text to Japanese, so I guess the option’s not available.
