“Be angry. Understand where you are in this world… and think – discern – where you ought to focus that anger of yours.”
Because I have this tendency to marathon games, I can’t seem to find the right reason to review games with sequels separately (just like my previous Trails post) so ta-dah! Another post where I will try to make sense as I can because I’m writing about two games. (°ヮ°)
I’ve played the first Fault months ago but…stopped for unknown reasons. But I have seen many praises about this work and I decided to give it another go. I’ve been on a visual novel streak lately! So the next time I started a new save file with Fault, I wasn’t able to stop myself from reading up to the sequel
(hence I suffer from the 2 games, 1 post cup) I hope you do not get that reference.
Be wary! Spoilers lurk in the shadows.
Date hot guys, you say? I only see that gorgeous being standing in the middle.
This will not be a full review of the game, but simply a
quick write up of my experience playing Mystic Messenger, and how it somehow ruined my life for 11 days.
Oh, I’ve managed to get out of the hot boys hell in case you feel like asking.
If you’re not familiar with the game, Mystic Messenger (also known as Susanghan Messenger) is a surprisingly unique otome game made by Cheritz. You play a character who downloaded an app from some mysterious source, and an “Unknown” person conveniently contacts you afterward and instructs you to visit an address…
…and it turns out that your character just ninja’d her way through the secret chatroom of the RFA (aka. Rika’s Fundraising Assoc.); a group full of hot people with serious personality issues. I’m not kidding.
“This girl is pure existence, close to the limit of nothingness. I wonder if you understand. She wants you all to be happy. ”
Urban legends are popular and often talked about in schools. When morbid rumors about people disappearing start spreading, our protagonist, Nakanobe Mayumi and her best friend Tamagawa Himeno sets off to investigate the source: the beautiful Manten Aquarium, an establishment located in the heart of Tokyo and considered a popular spot for families and young adults.
The trip starts as a normal date between friends until Mayumi catches a glimpse of her younger sister, Mari, who disappeared five years ago.
And then the tranquil Manten changes without their knowing. The other visitors have vanished and the whole atmosphere changes to something surreal…
Welcome to the Red Manten Aquarium where death lingers in every door, and your worse fear comes bubbling up to the surface. Literally speaking.
“Len, as of today, I will have you abandon this city… along with your life.”
Ese Len, a seemingly normal high school girl is suddenly thrust into a hidden reality after reuniting with her childhood friend, Shinonome Sarume. After being told to abandon her “normal life”, Len meets the other members of the Kunai Organization and slowly learns about the truth of the ayakashi, their plan to summon their big, bad god and her destiny as one of the chosen divine sword wielders.
The burden to save the world is now on her shoulders, but little does she know is that the most complicated, yet bittersweet feeling in life will also hit her like a torrent of emotion.
Seriously, what’s a girl to do?
