30 day otome challenge: Day 1 – First otome game.

First otome game I played.

A Christmas-themed game by Pinklover called Smoke Silver Christmas. When I found this game, my thoughts were ‘The character designs are brilliant and it’s Christmas either, so why not?’

Toono Hitaki, the protagonist has been going out with Hiyama Shin for half a year already. The looming exams during the winter of their third year of high school has strained your relationship with Shin’s irritation.

On the other hand, Shin’s friend Saga Taiki is treating you gently like he always does, unlike Shin. Now Hitaki doesn’t know who she likes anymore.

Summary: (c)Pinklover

The creator notes that it has a serious tone so it’s definitely not a lighthearted game.

I don’t think I finished this game… or maybe I did but forgot the story, haha (/ω\)

First otome game that I fell in love with.

A fantasy game including an impending marriage involving a late-bloomer with life-changing circumstances is ERFOLG’s Moonlight Wedding. Also the earlier work by the creator of Machi de Uwasa no Hakushaku-sama. It also featured Satoi’s character designs but the CGs are done by another artist so there are disperancies between the visuals ^^;

Played it the same time I found Smoke Silver Christmas and was comparing which game I could understand better with my meagre amount of Japanese knowledge (*´ω`*)

I remember getting excited and squealing like I never did before, seeing the characters changing expressions while I read the lines, haha. Their facial expressions really adds to my experience playing the game! The protagonist, Leena looks beautiful and I just adore her (>ω<)

My favourite character is the dark blue-haired character called Walter, he is a knight >w< またクールなキャラクターね(笑) Alec, the childhood friend also has a route. And the secret character is a thumbs up too!

I think I managed to fully complete the game thanks to the walkthrough they had on the website.

All these talk about my first otome game makes me want to play it again (≧▽≦) I’ll play once my mountain-load of ‘play-in-progress’ has been tackled (・ω<)☆

That’s all from my Day 1 of the 30 Day Otome Challenge!
