I know, I’m so late. I meant to play and write a post about this last year, but RL turned hectic while I was transitioning to a new job. On top of that, I was just not in the mood to play any games for a while. So there’s that. 😅
For those unfamiliar with NaNoRenO, it is an annual event that happens every March as game developers take on the challenge to create a visual novel within a month. Enamored Risks is Crystal Game Works’s entry for the NaNoRenO 2020. The story follows Alex, a college undergrad who feels burned out from her school works and her parents’ hassling. She overhears about a group of urban explorers and their adventures on abandoned buildings and other structures. Wanting to get out of her ordinary life, she decides to do some explorations. With the help of her newfound friends, she discovers not just the beauty within the ruins but also a different side of herself.

What it is
Basically, Miles Edgeworth struggles to find meaning in his job as a Prosecutor. As Miles figures out his life choices, he becomes entangled in a series of cases where he meets new and old characters alike. Every character he meets and cases he handles test his resolve to continue his path towards finding the truth.
Just so we’re clear, this is not an official English release. Unfortunately, Capcom doesn’t have any plans of releasing Gyakuten Kenji 2 overseas. But luckily, there’s a fan translation to allow us, players, to play this game.
I think I only mentioned it briefly in my previous Ace Attorney post years ago, but I did play the 1st game. It’s been a while so I already forgot most of it, but I think I have a good impression of the series (other than ogling Miles lol) at the very least. So why only play this now? Thanks to playing the demo of AI Somnium Files, I feel like playing something that involves investigations and crimes and all that shizz. And there’s only one game that comes to mind.

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?
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.

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?
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~!
