I stumbled upon Galen Games’ Deliver Us From Evil, the team’s submission for the 2021 Otome Jam on itch.io!
This is a quick and short review 🙂
Mankind has wished since the dawn of time, but when those pleas turn dark, Heaven decides to answer. Tasked by the Archangel Michael to investigate, will our young angel Ariel follow her mission? Or will she stray from the light?
Synopsis for Deliver Us From Evil, from their itch.io page
(throws confetti and has a round of Japanese tea as well as wagashi!)
The new release is completely remade from the inside and out with new stills, graphics (sprites and UI) and best ever, it’s fully-voiced.
Jun Minase (default name, customisable) is suddenly in charge of Shirakaba House, a dormitory full of foreign exchange students after the former manager is unable to resume his duties.
How would all these foreign exchange students manage with each other under one roof? Would there ever be peaceful days for Jun?
The game is suitable for those aged 16 and up (some topics mentioned/referred to in the game will be unsuitable for those under 16) and is absolutely free to play.
Playable on Windows and made with TyranoScript, there are SIX love interests with plenty of extras, giving it excellent replay value.
It begins with a prologue followed by the choice of a character route. Multiple choices will lead to a good or bad ending. There are also seasonal events where residents of the dormitory would interact with each other.
There is also a tipping function at NovelGame with the use of Amazon Japan giftcards if you are keen to show your appreciation.
I definitely learned several lessons when ebookjapan decided to flip the tables on us, the kind of people where you don’t live in Japan, don’t have a Japanese phone or isn’t familiar with ways to circumvent region-restrictions for apps – but still want to buy and read manga. Or if you like to read them for free (legally!).
