Replaying is something I don’t really do often. Doing it for 7’scarlet made me realized that there were bits and pieces of details I missed the first time I played the game. It’s a fine discovery and it made me appreciate the writing through these foreshadowing more.
PS Vita’s life has come to an end. I am sad about that fact as it’s my favorite gaming platform ever since it replaced PSP. All of my favorite Visual Novels, especially otome games, are PS Vita releases.
To think, otome games have just been localized in the Western in recent years.
If you’re new in the otome gaming world and feels pretty bummed out that it lost one of its primary gaming platforms, fret not.
Companies like Intragames are porting VNs, most importantly otome games, to PC via Steam. For this post, I partnered with Intragames to bring you their latest release, 7’scarlet.
7’scarlet is a mystery otome game set in the far-flung country of Okunezato. The heroine Ichiko Hanamaki, visits the place to search for clues for her missing brother. As she delves deeper into the country, she uncovers the many mysteries and secrets of Okunezato and its residents.
I’ve already played this game last year. Since I’ve already uncovered the secrets once, I’ve decided to play this with my good friend for a different POV. So here’s Nami!
Heya! So lately, I’ve been playing 7’scarlet. It is an otome game with a tinge of mystery. While the game is pretty short, it doesn’t cut out on surprises.
One year after the disappearance of her brother, Ichiko got invited by her childhood friend, Hino, to travel to Okunezato where the members of Okunezato Kinki Club meet up. This club is formed through a website, bringing in people who are interested in the mysteries of Okunezato – the same town where Ichiko’s brother disappeared to. Days after their arrival, mysterious events keep on happening one after another.
I wondered what’s with all the hype in this game and now I know why. I walked in completely clueless about it and walked out full of despair. But I did not regret it. I wanted to learn more about the mansion, the characters, everything and felt frustrated when the other characters won’t even say anything to Beniyuri. But when the truth came out, I was bawling and was like “my babies T_____T, please be happy. All of you.”
I TRIED TO KEEP THIS SPOILER-FREE BUT FAILED. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.
Code:Realize ~Shukufuku no Mirai~ explores all the possible scenarios it can squeeze out of its setting. Otomate decides that this game is a cross between a fan disk (FD), a sequel, and a spin-off. But they promote it as a fan disk, so my expectations are that of an FD – fun, light, and full of lovey-dovey moments. It seems like Otomate’s idea of FD is different than mine because I certainly don’t think FDs should contain even more heartbreaks than the first game.
On her first day of high school, Hinako accidentally bumps into Hikaru, a guy who looks just like her. After threatening her that she’ll have to pay a huge amount for his medical fees, she reluctantly agrees. Turns out, Hikaru is her long-lost twin and they are from a Yakuza family. Onigashima family has a long-standing tradition that the son should go to Shishiku Academy and be the banchou. Hikaru hates fighting and all the yakuza stuff. He learns of the existence of his twin sister and her physical strength so, with much blackmailing, Hinako has to attend to Shishiku. Her life as Hikaru starts!
