Arabians Lost remake

…this post is just me, squealing like a rabid fangirl. I’ve been wishing for this announcement for a year… (; v ;   )
It my favourite among Quinrose games (am yet to play the Alice series), so seeing that there’s finally a remake for it… (; v ;  )

Pre-order, please open soon (; v ;   )


Crimson Empire – Prologue highlights

After so long, I finally got back into otome gaming. Hadn’t been playing any otome game for a while, most of the time trying to finish reading novels that had been waiting for months to be finished, playing online games, went on holiday, hanging out with friends more, etc… also in the middle of playing an eroge, trying to finish it so I can write a proper review on it. I was planning to not play any other game until I finish that one… but ehh, last night I saw my copy of Crimson Empire in the corner and thought, well, I’ll try to play for a bit, just get past the prologue…

…3 hours later, and I *think* I’ve just finished the prologue… I stopped playing because it was 3AM, but it looked like the prologue’s over…

The game, from what I can see in the prologue, is just my type of game; dark, mature, with equally dark jokes… and as such, I don’t think I can shut up and not tell people about it. This is a warning; whatever you’ll read will be spoilers. I suggest you stop reading if you want to play the game without any spoiler (which is the best way to play a game). The following spoilers will be from the 3 hours’ worth of prologue (and only because I just can’t shut up about it).


Crimson Empire – Characters Intro

Brief character introductions of Quinrose’ newest game, Crimson Empire (released… sometime in the future…). Intro is taken from the characters page, and translated with the help of translation tools. As such, the translation won’t be the best…


Arabians Lost – Endings Guide

A continuation from yesterday’s post… I just picked up my copy of Arabians Lost Visual Fanbook yesterday morning, and I think some things inside it will be of interest to people who play the game.

Apart from events, walkthrough, character profiles and short B&W manga for each pairing, the book also list all the possible endings for each character… and I was surprised to discover that some characters had endings which others didn’t have. This post will simply be a guideline on how to get those endings. Keep in mind, however, that some of these endings will only be available on PS2. The book doesn’t really tell you immediately which endings are PS2-only, so if anyone can give any confirmation it’d be awesome… alternatively I guess I just have to keep on playing the PC version to check.


Arabians Lost – Gameplay

Arabians Lost is Quinrose’s second game with a desert setting. The main character, Aileen Olazabal, is the only daughter and princess of Gilkhatar who wants nothing more than to lead a normal life and not be a princess. However, nearing her birthday, the King and Queen decided that she should marry, and that they had decided on a husband for her. Wanting to have a normal life (which includes having a normal romance, falling in love etc), Aileen refused. This lead to a wager between Aileen and her parents; if Aileen could raise 10,000,000G in 25 days, she’s free to do what she wanted. If she failed, then she’d have to do what her parents said.

Why such a weird wager…? Well… Gilkhatar isn’t a normal country. You can think of it as a country of criminals (since they certainly let things like assassins guild running around). Aileen herself hasn’t been raised like other princesses; where other princesses learn how to dance or to sing, Aileen learns how to pick locks and to fight (which is what we’re shown she was doing, at the beginning of the game). (And considering the sort of country Gilkhatar is, one wonders if Aileen’s interpretation of the word ‘normal’ is the same as the rest of us…)
