I just want to say to anon and anyone reading this blog, there is absolutely nothing pathetic about playing these games. There’s absolutely nothing pathetic about them helping you through hard times. Often people turn to fantasy worlds in books as a pick-me-up, and otome games really aren’t any different. Games in general aren’t any different.
If they do something for you, I think that’s great! After a horrible break-up in my past, I marathon read almost a hundred shoujo manga titles to make me feel better. It worked and I feel no shame in admitting it, because anything that brings you happiness isn’t pathetic in the least!
I second Kanacchi’s post. Feel no shame for playing the games you do. I’m about to be 34 next month and I adore playing otome dating games. My first rendezvous with romance as a feature was BioWare games and I was hooked. Then I was introduced to Love Letter From Thief X from louvette and it was like the flood gates had opened. I was hungry for more. The awesome thing about the games officialvoltageotome, Solmare, and other otome game companies offer is they offer a chance for us to experience romance of a different flavor. Will you be a princess, a detective, a thief? Are you a ninja? And you have the option to choose which person will be your beau, should they be available. These games bring a joy to my life and I wish there were more out available in English. I’m hoping to see more dating sims in the future that cater to all genders and sexual orientations. Anyways… I got off on a tangent there… But yeah. You, anon, are awesome and never apologize for liking the things that you do. Period.
For those of you who haven’t seen my constant reblogs about this here’s some info for you. I really want this visual novel to get funded because it looks amazing and is made by amazing people. It only has three days to raise about $1,000 which, to be honest, seems a little improbable which is why I think everyone should be reblogging and funding this project today.
For just a second I’m also going to do some simple math here. $1000 looks like a lot to raise in 3 days, but I’m estimating with the price of most of the tiers it will take between 25-40 people to get it funded. But that’s only if no one funds the higher tiers (and lets face it, who wouldn’t you fund the higher tiers? They have some super awesome tiers.) I’m about to be one of those 25-40 people and you guys should be too!

Reblogging this because holy shit this needs to be funded. It needs to be at 5k. As of right now it’s at 4200. Let’s help make this game see the light!
This is a quick video of a short level I made using the UDK editor for Interior Spaces and Worlds class. Super short and I apologize for the low quality. Most of the items seen are from the resources provided within UDK. The only items I made were the table, the tower, and the “archway”. I’m still a noob but man this program is fun to use!
Clementine WIP. I feel like the more I work on her the more odd the shape of her face becomes. I’ve about given up on this. I really need to do more color studies while looking over picture portraits and shading. I also need to use harder brushes so the shading doesn’t appear muddy. And not to overblend. /artistproblems
It has come to my attention that there are fully legal adults who are not familiar with this, who do not know what to do when they hear it, and indeed, were born after it came out.
This is unacceptable.
It is irrevocably tattooed into the brain of anyone vaguely associated with Western culture who was old enough to form cognizant memories in the mid 90s. And yes, we can all do the dance. I guarantee you Dean Winchester can do the dance. Bobby can do the dance. Sherlock can do the dance. Tony Stark has made sure all his robots can do the dance.
And all of you over the age of 25 already know what it is before you press play.
I REMEMBER THIS.
My Brain: This better not be what I think it’s gonna be. It: *is what I thought it was going to be* Me: *throws things out the window*
