What can’t smartphones do? You can take gorgeous photos, shop, study a language, even get your air conditioner cleaned. Of course, you can also use it to find people — actual people — to date, but what if you’re after something to level up your love life without having to endure endless entries of self-absorbed abs selfies? Well, (voice lowered), ladies, there is a way — Japan’s otome games are here to level up your love life and they are totally addictive.
What’s an ‘Otome game’?
Otome games are story-based video games that feature a leading character (usually the user) who interacts and eventually dates (or marries!) one of several characters in the game world. The games are done in the first-person format and are usually written in conversational dialogue. The player (you) is presented with a situation or question from characters in the game which have multiple possible replies to choose from in order to continue the game. The reply that you choose will affect how the character replies, and will ultimately determine the outcome of that chapter in the story. Otome games typically have several chapters or seasons for each character within a given game title. You can replay chapters over again with different answers, and see different versions of the story ending too.
