Otome Games

Hi people of my favorite thread,
I think I will take some time off from this forum. I was thinking that maybe we could create a discord channel or any other mean to keep talking about otomes recommendations and releases? I kind of not want to lose contact with you all (Just saying cause I have absolutely no idea how to do this, but I can try)

Hey, I don’t mind being in. You can DM me if you figure something out

Count me in, too. I actually created a discord for discussion of other stuff when there were… some issues… around here. We could use that one, if you want. Or I can help you start one, if you prefer.

Which, by the way, I played a horror game called You or Him last night and it was actually pretty good. Creepy as hell, but I enjoyed it. After I died twice after making two or three choices, anyway, lol.

This was planned to be coming out this month! Really great demo, would highly recommend for any history buffs!

This is on my wishlist, but unfortunately the release date has changed to Q1 2024 instead. So I assume it’ll be on March at the latest. :pensive:

Ah! Thanks for letting me know!

First off, I had like to start by thanking you all for your amazing suggestions, truly, I have discovered a lot of gems thanks to you. I am always excited when I see a new post in here.

I thought that maybe I can also contribute to this thread. And please, don’t forget to read the warnings before diving in. So, without further ado :

  • If you are like me and like everything that is yandere :

Binary Star Hero ( Completed I think ? )

Without spoiling too much, this one gave me the vibes of how it would feel like to date Sidestep from FH.

14 Days With You ( Work in Progress : 3 Days so far )

This one is by far my favourite yandere VN, especially because it’s built like an IF but with visuals, and the art style is sublime, if you aren’t against your MC being a nerd who is into anime and webcomics, then you MUST try it. The thing with yandere VNs is that most of them start right off the bat with the horror stuff making you hate the yandere character from the beginning and be less inclined to interact with them resulting in early dead ends, but here you get to build the relationship at your own pace, well you can’t straight up reject Ren, then there would be no game to play after all, but who would reject the complete cutie that is [REDACTED] Ren ? The game even tracks your relationship to the side characters !

My Dear Hatchet Man & See Thru: Need a Friend? (Original Demo)

These were one of my first yandere VNs, so I don’t remember much, but I liked them.

  • If you are like me and like Heroes stories :

HEROTOME [Super Demo]

The latest update added so much to the game, there are a lot of daring options that I would not dare make, but the characters’ reaction to them are all worth it. The Mc is female gender locked, and so fun to play, doesn’t take shit from no one and can somewhat hold their own in a boxing match against a professional hero ( At least if you play them this way ), there are also various personalities for them, even though the game sometimes feels to nudge you for the former.

  • If you are like me and like stories set in the Regency Era :

Truths Untold by Crow Tree Entertainment ( Demo )

Long for a demo, I remember playing through all of it in the web browser, I don’t know how my pc survived. Unfortunately it has been on a far long hiatus, but I am still holding hope.

The Rose of Segunda and its sequel The Thorns of War

  • VNs I haven’t played yet but seem promising :

Hi everyone! Issue #10, covering from the 1st of February until the 15th is now uploaded. Amare news is heating up again with more releases, updates, and crowdfunding going up. Ace Jam also wrapped up within this time frame so be sure to have a look at that.

There were a few last minute game announcements and releases we caught but the bulletin was finalised by then so we’ll definitely catch them in the next update! But that just shows there is a lot going on in the world of VNs and IF’s right now!

Be sure to check out the issues and all the new content out there.

So the release date has changed again to June 2024. :smiling_face_with_tear:
Why can’t there be more good news this year rather than bad ones instead? :smiling_face_with_tear:
That aside, did someone manage to make a discord server for this discussion? If yes can I get the link to it? Would love to get more otome recommendations. :slightly_smiling_face:

Episode 8 of Andromeda Six is out…

And, for those who–like me–had soured a bit on the game due to Damon/Alisa being rammed down your throat as the preferred pairing (when not on Damon’s route)–that has been removed, so you can play other routes without having it forced on you. You can apparently still choose to push LIs with other NPCs, however…

I’m glad Zane is getting some love, too, really. He’s funny with Alisa.
