This is the first otome I’ve played this summer vacation, and I was pleasantly surprised at the freshness of the game even after following a well-worn path of supernatural romance.
Sonnet009’s writing was a delicate morsel, something that even when taken in great amounts doesn’t spoil your appetite (huh, when did I get so poetic and critic-y?). In the lemmasoft forum where she posted the completed game, she stated that almost all of the material she used for the game was free stuff. That didn’t stop me from being impressed at the game (which she completed in only three days, btw), though. It was touching, sweet, a delight to play.
You might ask why RE: Alistair, whose plots I relegated to the ‘cliche’ folder, isn’t better than this, story-wise. High school, romance, supernatural? Sounds veeery cliche to me. But when Sonnet009 put her writing skills to work, the story became a great new one, the scuffs reworked into a touching tale.
