Well, the tagline was kinda cheesy, but what can I say? I guess I’m just a hopeless romantic.
What caught my attention was the title… a TROLL? Morishita stated in her thread that the troll wasn’t of the internet kind, and I thought that was kind of funny. So I decided to check this game out, hoping there was more humor in the game.
I wasn’t disappointed. Not only was there oodles of humor, great art, and, yes, romance, ‘A Troll’s Fairy Tale’ had an engaging plot. The MC, Acacia, was so natural and defied all things Mary Sue, that I loved her from the very first. Her hair reminded me of mine, too xD.
Onto the characters! (Okay, my ranking system doesn’t come into play here… just introducing the main characters in order of their appearances.)
-Acacia is the MC, not one of the pursuable guys, but I liked her so much I decided to give a review of her. What I loved about Acacia was that her problems were all too real–it wasn’t a ‘Confessions of a Drama Queen’ thing she had going. I could almost feel her emotions as I played the game. Like I said, great writing there. Acacia is the kick-ass heroine I’ve always loved reading about or playing as.
-Damine is the guy I decided to go for first, since Morishita advised in her thread to do so, as she said that the player would understand more about Acacia’s backstory if Damine’s path was taken before the other guy’s.
Hmm. Damine was the typical gorgeous player who had it all, the guy with girls on his arm every time Acacia saw him, etc. He’s of the unicorn race, and is the Golden Prince (of the Kingdom, I guess). I’d usually be disgusted/bored by this kind of person, but Damine sorta won me over (that rat). He wasn’t nice (kinda like Travis from RE: Alistair), but something told you he could be nice.
c. Edavine -However hot Damine was, Edavine was hotter. When Morishita mentioned Edavine’s being a fairy, I was like “Meh. I’ve had enough of fairy pansies.” But then Edavine appeared in all his tanned glory. I was swept away by his charisma… it was nothing compared to Damine’s. Maybe because he was honest and not the flirty type like Damine was. He flirted, yeah, but he was more obvious about it than Damine was. Edavine had his own problems, but he didn’t make them sound like the world was falling on him when he told Acacia about them. Another point for him <3.
All-in-all, the game earned two thumbs up from me. Sure, there were some mistakes in it, but they weren’t enough to distract me from the game itself. I loved the story, the art, the characters.
