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).



Deponia – review

I was given a copy of the game via Steam as a birthday gift, and whilst I was really looking forward to play it… I was quite disappointed by it in the end. This is a non-otome point-and-click adventure, so if that’s not to your taste, move on.

This was going to be a proper review, but I think it turned into a rambling rant very early on… also, I didn’t take screenshots whilst playing and I don’t feel like reinstalling the game just to take screenshots so…


The Book of Unwritten Tales – review

My hasn’t this blog been dead for a while… anyhoo… a change in personal circumstances means I suddenly have a lot less time to play games, and I don’t think that will change for the foreseeable future. I still play games, but I can only play something like 30min a day. Took me weeks to finish The Book of Unwritten Tales at that pace… and recently I started getting into Magic The Gathering so there goes all my money.

The Book of Unwritten Tales is a non-otome, point-and-click adventure game for PC. Move on if this is not to your taste.


Aeon Avenger – review (with Symphony of Eternity)

Yet again another review for non-otome game… this time for Aeon Avenger made by Kemco Games. Only read this if you’re interested in playing retro-looking RPG games on an Android device.

…to be honest this is more of a rant than a review, but ehh.


Little Inferno – review

Title card

Title card

I picked up Little Inferno by Tomorrow Corporation at the End of Year Steam sale, and finished it in one sitting. …it’s not exactly _that_ short to be finished in one sitting; I just couldn’t stop playing… when the ending credit rolled my reaction was “F***, it’s already 3AM?!” Thankfully it was the weekend…

Recommended, if you like a simple game hiding a profound question and contemplation.

Just an otome game fan. ...who spends a lot of weekends playing otome games on PC with a Japanese dictionary propped open on her lap.
