About this blog

Welcome to my refuge, where shitty porn games reign supreme and salt is the only currency. Here you will find ramblings about things that make most of my current life, aside from art, work and sleeping. I typically rant about visual novels - mainly eroge and other vn-related topics, but you might stumble upon different genres from time to time. Digital entertainment aside, I also talk about wide range of topics I take interest in - gamedev, otaku media, good books... the list goes on. I do post infrequently and when I actually do, don't expect any logic, nor coherence. Randomness is my sister and my attention span is that of a few weeks old pup. On a side note - I tend to be more critical of stuff I particularly like. I do not rate the vns I play, providing fair summaries instead. I have a very low tolerance for stupid bullshit.

If you're looking for honest opinions about games, without any sort of sugar-coating or political correctness, you're in the right place.

Hope you'll enjoy your stay.

Disclaimer: Creator of this blog does not take responsibility for any negative results caused by prolonged exposure to salt. Bias at the bottom of the bottle is a naturally occurring process. May (or may not) contain high amounts of catgirls. You've been warned.

Otomimi ∞ Infinity

Yeah, exactly that.   Title: オトミミ∞インフィニティー (Otomimi ∞ Infinity) Developer: Applique -Sister- Released: 2011/09/22 Genre: Social Fiction Rating: 18+ website (overseas IP's are currently blocked because Akabei Soft3 are a bunch of faggots) trial version Trailer:   Despite being a very popular trope in japanese pop culture, mimikkos don't appear that often in visual novels. Sure - they aren't uncommon as side characters or a single a

Revised rating system and the eroge food chain or "why certain genres can't attain enlightment"

I've been meaning to do this for a longer while now, but various circumstances always prevented me from making it. Before we start, let me make this clear. I dislike value-based rating systems, where numbers are supposed to be an estimate on how "good" something is, or how much quality there is to it. In my opinion, those systems are all fair and square but don't really work the way we'd like them to, not to mention a simple number is vague as hell and doesn't really provide anything except

Warning: This review isn't necessarily safe for work, but all the nsfw content remains hidden within the spoiler tags. Read at your own discretion. Title: 妖幻天女 (The Bewitching Celestial Maiden) Developer: Scoop Release: 2001/01/25 Genre: Fantasy Rating: AO/18+ Trailer: After way too many vns in our existence all the plots slowly run together into one and character development stops being important.

Reading line-up for late spring/summer 2018

Considering I've been seriously slacking off, I decided to talk a bit about my list of both japanese and western vns that remain on high priority for this season. Aside from a couple shorter, english-translated titles (Karakara 2, amongst others), Engima: I have yet to check and a bunch of doujin/amateur evns, this list consists of major games I'm mostly looking forward to this season. So, without further ado, in order of priority from highest to the lowest: Japanese titles: Youg

Nemurenu Hitsuji to Kodoku na Ookami - first impressions

Warning: this post contains screenshots and (very) minor spoilers from the trial version. If you completely don't want to spoil yourself, or haven't played the trial yet, I'd highly advise to postpone reading until you finish the game first. If you did not yet stumble upon one of those TIME TO LEARN JAPANESE reminders, you have a damn good reason to finally consider studying moon runes.

[DEVLOG] Random scriblings, or how to create an interesting concept in less than 6 kilobytes + lots of beer (Stephen King would be proud & kids, don't try this at home)

Nothing particular, just a random short script I wrote a while ago at night, while being completely intoxicated (read: drunk as fuck). It turned out to be a lot more promising I expected at first, so I thought like sharing it, you know - for research purposes. Might or might not be connected with the things I work on, who knows. I presume it still does connect with the story of that one city, as in "THE CITY". The only one... left/known/whatever? Pick your choice. === - I CAN'T KILL YO

[DEVLOG] Memoirs: Laying out the foundations

How many times it was, when you saw an interesting title which advertised itself as being set in a distinct setting of it's own, only to discover it's literally the same kind of fluff dressed up in a bit more gaudy clothing? A story that had some deeper themes running behind, only to see them completely ditched or neglected midway through in favor of protagonist's attempts to get inside the panties of yet another girl? Secret organizations and mega corporations participating in completely meanin

VN's Forever: Regarding ChuableSoft's bankruptcy or the sad state of modern, japanese vn industry

As you may (or may not, at least yet) know, ChuableSoft has filed for bankruptcy on 7th of July. In his Twitter, Ishida P - ChuableSoft's director - stated they had no other choice than to close, simply because it was not possible for them to continue with the company in it's current state. This may come of as slightly surprising, considering their previous game - Watashi ga Suki nara "Suki" tte Itte! (SukiSuki for short) won the 2015's Moege Awards and was met with warm praise - both from the f

Woesome gaming - Rain World: A love letter to challenging gameplay or everything, that can go wrong with souls-like games

Disclaimer: This article is meant to be more of a rant, rather than a classic review. If you're looking for the latter, there's plenty of good ones around the net, that perfectly share my feelings about the game. Although I tried it to be as much spoiler-free as possible, talking about the game in it's current state is almost impossible without slight spoilers. You've been warned. I have a particular fondness for difficult games. This goes back to times, where games used to be both muc

Tidbits from Etherna: Selekhs

Selekhs remain a mysterious race of aquatic beings, dwelling in most of the southern and south-eastern oceans. Not much is known about them, albeit their appearances were noted throughout the pages of history. Since the times of dawn, Selekh were often called spirits of water and each race gave them different names - Sylphaeans, Nixe, Selks… while humans called them Melusines. The so called stories of mermaids, bewitching the fearless sailors of the southern seas were their tales of unrequited l
