Itch.io App

The itch.io app has come a long way from when I first got it, however it needs a lot of improvements.

What’s Working:

  • I like that the tabs have their own section. Unlike the Steam client that just pops them up. I have have a list of tabs open.
  • Has a list of my Library with my collections and creations on the side.

What’s Not Working:

  • I really wish I could black list devs and games. There are a lot of games that pop up in my search that I just don’t want to see for whatever reason.
  • No ability to review a game from the app. You have to go to an actual browser to do that. It could easily be put in the sidebar with Buy/Download Now, Share.
  • No ability to follow a dev.
  • No ability to add nor remove a game to a collection. Removing a game could be done by clicking an X when looking at it in the Collections tab.

Quick Review – Halloween Otome

Halloween Otome Title

Halloween Otome Title

I’ll make this one short and sweet as I couldn’t put up with the blatant misogyny in this “otome game”.
First off the MC (Main Character) and her friend both look like they were referenced from a “bishoujo game” basically a for male audience game, thus the skimpy outfits, broken uncomfortable arm anatomy to show off breasts etc. This is supposed to be an otome game, I am playing this to get away from bishoujoge bullshit. Yet.. there it is!!

These next ones speak for themselves. Let’s to say Mr. Misogyny was sure that I was hitting the kill switch on this game fast.

Firstly the “FEEEEMALES!!” one… He refers to old men as MEN.. not “Old males”, but women are clearly FEMALES. A dehumanizing term.

Next is the “Excuse me this is NO JOB FOR A LADY” bullshit. Yeah seriously, GTFO of otome games Mr. Misogyny.

Lest to say I hit the exit button and didn’t look back. It MIGHT have been a better game except for this bullshit. I am NOT going to sit through this crap.

Short Reviews – [text], The Noose

A list of short reviews for games that aren’t quite long enough to have established characters, but are nice little short distractions.

 

[text]

[text] is a short game that depending on the choice is either a slice of life, or a scary story. It’s nice and short and too the point. I only kind of wish the uncle was characterized a little more, but the game is that short. A nice little distraction for when you have some time to kill.

The Noose

The Noose is a game that takes about 3 hours to get through and the middle is filled with such over the top repetitive words and phrases it gets silly, so by the time the real scary stuff happens you are just tied. Also sound effects are used way too much in scenes to the point they just get annoying.

Also the story is confusing as fuck. I don’t know it it’s the translation that’s bad or really you just don’t quite get what’s going on, but by the end that diary entry still makes no sense.
