CORRECTION NOTICE: Last week, I reported that the Kickstarter campaign for Mystic Destinies: Echoes had been successful. This is a mistake, as it is the initial funding of the Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons deluxe edition that was successful, NOT the Echoes game itself (as of yet). Echoes is the next goal of the campaign at this time of writing.

To Star Maiden Games and all Wonderland readers, please accept my apology for any misunderstandings this incorrect report may have caused.

Now onto the correct update!

At this time of writing, the campaign has raised $11,192 out of its original $7,500 request by 212 backers with 6 days left until its conclusion. The original amount covers the initial funding of the Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons deluxe edition.

To fund for Echoes, the next goal amount of $20,200 will need to be raised. Echoes will focus on the antagonists of the first game- Mystic Destines: Serendipity of Aeons– and will feature a new protagonist. Note: “If Echoes is not reached, we will take the extra funding from this campaign and apply it toward the development of the game, reducing the total we need when we start a second Kickstarter campaign for Echoes!”

 

The Kickstarter campaign of Cinderella Phenomenon has now concluded. In total, developers Dicesuki raised £4,147 (approx. $5,382) thanks to 187 backers. All three stretch goals were also reached- there will now be 2 additional CGs per route, second poses for the main characters, additional CGs for the fandisc and additional funds for future Dicesuki games.

 

In the 13/10/2016 issue of Famitsuu Weekly magazine’s Famitsuu Cross Review (released on 29/9/2016), NORN9 ~Norn + Nonette~ Act Tune and PsychicEmotion6 were reviewed. NORN9 Act Tune received 32 (8/8/8/8), earning it a Famitsuu Gold award. PsychicEmotion6 got 28 (7/8/7/6), leaving it without an award. For those unfamiliar with the Famitsuu Cross Review scoring system, it involves a panel of 4 game critics reviewing the same game with each critic giving it a score from 0~10. This makes 40 the highest possible score, with awards of distinction being given to games earning: 30~31/40 = Famitsuu Silver, 32~34/40 = Famitsuu Gold and 35+/40 = Famitsuu Platinum.

 

Daisy2 have announced the release date and title of the Zettai Kaikyuu Gakuen ~Eden with roses and phantasm~ fanbook that’s been in the making: the fanbook will be called Truth in the Illusion and is set to hit stores on 28/10.

 

honeybee has launched the website of their new official online store called honey shop. As the name implies, it’s essentially a one-stop shop for all things honeybee drama CDs and games. In addition, there’s also plenty of character merchandise and the store also sells and links to other brands under the Asgard umbrella such as BlackButterfly and bisCrown.

4 thoughts on “The Sunday Otome Gaming Mail: Issue #33

  1. Momo

    I love how these come out on Sunday like it’s the damn Sunday paper.

    • Thank you, Momo!

      I do my best to release them every Sunday (Australian time), though some of my international readers are probably getting them “delivered” on Saturday, really! xD

  2. LOL @ PE6’s famitsu rating but really… just like magic kyun… I’m certain none of us had any doubt what kind of score this game would get. Aah but I was happy to see in the last issue that Haitaka got a pretty good score. I’m really enjoy Kokuchou so I’m glad to see Haitaka didn’t totally bomb in the scores hahaha. That always makes me hopeful!

    Quite a few kickstarters up and running for new indie otome games. As usual I’m interested in seeing how they’ll turn out after the funding is complete!

    Also, have you seen the game image Kalmia8/Kalmia Scarlet put up on the Les Grande Odalisque website? It’s kind of small but it’s really gorgeous! My interest is certainly piqued, but we’ll see when they begin to release updates and stuff if it’s really worth my interest or not :p

    As usual, thanks for all your hard work! \(^0^)/

    • Hi, Usagii!

      LOL, I feel a bit sorry for the games that haven’t been getting at least 30, since it seems pretty easy to achieve Silver or higher this year. I’m not even sure how the reviewing panel really works- e.g. if the same panel of four critics review all games, if there is a different panel for each game, different panel every week, etc. So perhaps luck could play a small factor in scores, too? Either way, Famitsuu scores have been criticised every now and then for many years now, so it’s kinda like Amazon- an extreme score is a somewhat reliable indication of a game’s general quality (I’ve never played a one-star game that was good or a five-star game that is crap IMO), but otherwise… I wouldn’t put a lot of stock on them. That being said, it’s still great to see a game you love get good reviews. If only I had time for Haitaka… T_T

      Yeah, lots of Kickstarters going on! To date, the only one I’ve supported is Caramel Mokaccino. I hope to change this as I would like to see the OELVN community grow and get boosts in quality as a result of their creators getting extra funds to play with.

      As for your question about Les Grande Odalisque… Yes, I have! Shame it’s small and not high-res (the largest I could get it is here) but I agree with you- nice-looking art. Not really my style (whatever that is. My “preferred style” is pretty inconsistent and arbitrary. It’s more like what I look at and “really like” immediately). Hope the game’s story is as great as its looks, plus I hope the website launches soon so we can take a peek at the story and characters!

      You’re very welcome as always, my friend. Thank YOU for your constant support!
