What it is (from the official site)

You live in a small, peaceful village. Every day is the same as any other; boring. Right when you wish for something exciting to happen, strange things start to occur, stemming from the nearby forest. If that isn’t enough, the locals have begun disappearing. At the same time you meet four mysterious guys. Will you discover the truth before becoming the next target?


Heya folks!

The developer, Pinlin, reached out to me last year about their new game. Dark Nights is a passion project that took a whopping six years in development with Pinlin as the only one who worked on this in all those years. Talk about dedication!

Dark Nights is a name-your-price indie game that you can get on their Itch.io website. It is a medium-length game with each route spanning over 5-7 hours. I thought it’s an interesting game based on the visuals and its premise so I thought why not give it a try.

Paws & Effect: My dogs are human!

Developer: Shimmersoft

Platform: PC

Category: Comedy, Slice of Life

Official Site: http://shimmersoft.com/paws-effect

Available at: Itch.io, Gamejolt, Steam (to be released on Feb 14!)

What it is (from the site):

Paws & Effect: My Dogs Are Human! is a quirky romp that seeks to answer an age-old question: What would happen if your pets suddenly became people?

Chaos. Naturally.

Assume the role of Sadie (name customizable), a young woman with aspirations of being a lawyer, as she grapples with perhaps the greatest legal challenge of her life: Keeping her two dogs out of jail after they mysteriously transform into humans, somehow capable of speech and eager to abuse the newfound power of thumbs. What will Sadie teach them about the human condition? What will she discover about herself? And who is behind all this nonsense? You’ll have to play to find out!


The devs contacted me about their new game so I checked out the game’s website, and I thought it looked cute and fun. To try out their game, they sent me their presskit which included 3 versions (Win, Mac, and browser) of the game and a very helpful fact sheet. While I did try the browser one a bit, I played most of the game using the Win version.

So here are my thoughts about it~!

One Night Stand

Developer: Kinmoku

Publisher: Ratalaika Games

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch

Category: Slice of life

Guide used: https://www.trueachievements.com/game/One-Night-Stand/walkthrough/3

From Nintendo Site:

You’ve just woken up next to a stranger. What do you do?

In One Night Stand, explore the stranger’s bedroom and seek out clues to identify who she is and what brought you both together.

You may resort to some unusual methods to find the answers you’re looking for, but try not to prod and pry too much – a nosy guest quickly becomes an unwanted one!

Will you stay and explore your relationship with this stranger, or will you escape when the opportunity presents itself? With 12 unique endings to discover, can you keep up the act long enough to find out what really happened?

You know, One Night Stand is the kind of game that I wouldn’t normally play. I’d probably judged the title, but still secretly dying to know what it is about. The first time I’ve seen this game was during a Nintendo Eshop sale sometime late last year. The title is, as you might have noticed, is eye-catching and intriguing. My first thought was, “wtf is this game? Why would they name it like that?”

Luckily, a friend gave me a free code because as it turned out, One Night Stand is indeed an engrossing game.

✭Verdict✭

Interesting take on a single life event

Recommended for: Everyone

Because why not? It is short and cheap, and the story and gameplay are good. It is a win-win for all.

After 3 years, I’m back to playing mobile otome games! 😂 I don’t think I was able to blog about the games I played before? Save for Mystic Messenger, that is.

So you might wonder why I picked up another mobage. Well, I was free and scrolling through Google Play when a representative of AbracadabraGames sent an email about their newly released game.

The information and the images are provided (except for the one that I used in the Highlight section) by AbracadabraGames. All game-related information used in this post will be put into quotes. Rest assured that my initial impressions are my honest view of the game.

[Game] Alternate Jake Hunter: DAEDALUS The Awakening of Golden Jazz DEMO

ダイダロス:ジ・アウェイクニング・オブ・ゴールデンジャズ | Alternate Jake Hunter: DAEDALUS The Awakening of Golden Jazz

Publisher: Arc System Works

Developer: Neilo

Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PS4, PC (Steam)

Category: Adventure

Release Date: May 23, 2019

Official Site: EN

Summary from the Nintendo page:

That was one month ago today.

Someone has murdered Saburo’s grandfather, Kyosuke, while he was living in New York.

Saburo sets off to New York to sort through the belongings and memories his grandfather left behind.

The nostalgia of the cityscape and reunions with old friends is fleeting, however.

He soon discovers that his grandfather’s last word was, ‘Daedalus.’

What does it mean?

Why was my grandfather killed?

“Remember, Saburo: tend the orchard of your mind.”

Kyosuke’s words and teachings on the art of thinking are just distant memories.

And yet, young Jinguji Saburo who is alone in the world, takes up the gauntlet for himself and for his late grandfather!

First things first, this post is for the demo of Alternate Jake Hunter: DAEDALUS The Awakening of Golden Jazz, which I’ll be referring to throughout the post as Daedalus because gosh, the title is a mouthful lol.

Daedalus is released this year with a price of $39.99. I’ve seen its VNDB page and is surprised to know that the length of the game is only about 2-10 hours long. On How Long to Beat website, it is 6 ½ hours — granted that this is from 1 user alone. I thought the full game would be pretty long especially with that price. But now, I’m not sure if it’s worth it?

Then again, this is just the demo so let’s dive in. 😁

That one reason that made me love Dream Daddy

20190105192038_1
I love the Dad Tips in this game.

The most surprising thing to me is how much I loved playing Dream Daddy. As I mentioned here, I thought that it would be a charming and entertaining game. I admit, I started playing it for the lulz but there’s more to the eye-rolling daddy jokes than meets the eye.
