[Ed.: anyone who says they don’t live in a pink-tinted glass house of smut is lying or deluded, or perhaps just lives a sad, sad life (unless you’re asexual, you’re perfect and we heart you too)—official G-vesc position on romance ♥] Otome games are also sometimes called dating sims and generally fall into the visual novel category.
Visual novels tend to be extremely story-driven with the outcomes determined by the choices you make along a branching story route.
The watercolor art style and clever writing took me surprise, especially given that this game—along with the others—was completed in just one month!
He’s also the one who buys me the latest localized game on pre-order before I even know it’s out.As a side note, did you know otome games should be considered a marital aid?I love food: A pint of fresh strawberries could never break my heart, and a steaming pile of french fries would never stand me up.That seems to be the premise of Food Court, which takes place in a universe populated by anthropomorphic food items that, uh, eat and date other foods.Fine, if you read this site I’ll admit you’ve probably already figured that out by my series “Let’s Get it On,” but I’m mentioning this specifically because it’s super nerdy.
Plus, although I sneer at my friend’s romance novels, I really have no room to talk here in my glass house.It’s simply the best indie stat-raising/visual novel hybrid I’ve played.Most stat-raising games I’ve played focus so much on the stats that the storyline seems poorly tacked on.Unfortunately, it’s easy to get jaded after binging on a few; they often have the same types of guys and the storyline tropes can get eye-rollingly common. Each game starts with 5 guys and each time there are the same types—it’s clear copy/paste.Don’t get me wrong—despite all that, I still loved 10 Days with My Devil.Dating sims often have you scheduling your character’s time in order to raise specific stats by doing certain activities.
