Galen Games – Deliver Us From Evil (DUFE)

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?

Remake of Aru Kanrinin no Koi spring+summer released!

A quick yet important update:

Mirin-san has completed the remake for the original Japanese release of Dormitory Love spring+summer!!!!

Download Aru Kanrinin no Koi spring+summer for Windows here

(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?

Trailer for Aru Kanrinin no Koi spring+summer (Dormitory Love spring+summer, in English).

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.

To celebrate this absolutely wondrous occasion, Mirin-san is uploading audio comments from the game’s main voice cast on Youtube 🙂

Nashinosuke voicing Minase Jun (MC/Heroine)
Konoe Yoritada voicing Felix Scheider
Inuzaki Pochi voicing Guillaume Dubois
Noki Yuusei voicing Joshua Raynolds
Narumi Shuuji voicing Ling Wei
Yayoi Yamato voicing Sasha Lebedev
Hashiba Ryo voicing Sean Orwell

and a super special addition, an audio comment from the creator herself!!

Will be updated with links as it goes live. You can find Hase im Haus’ channel here.

If you need a walkthrough, Mirin-san has it here.

Let her know what you think on her Twitter or on her website’s contact form 💕
