homiboo stop please i love femm too much you make me watch every one of their videos every time you post shit nooooooooooooooooooo
how so? i’ve literally never played one before
Oh hoh hoh as an ex otome addict let me explain.
Otome games on the phone come in two different styles: energy-based and non-energy-based. The most popular of Type A are the Shall We Date series, and the most popular of Type B are Voltage Inc's games.
Type A games will refill your energy slowly (some give you one energy every xxxx hours, some give you five energy at a set time every day, etcetera), and you’ll use that in order to read tiny little 30-60 second tidbits of your current guy’s story. They hook you by giving you a lot of items that refill your energy over the first couple of days so you get addicted to a current speed of story-telling, and then that support magically disappears.
Whereas you were initially able to read maybe 10 or 15 minutes of story a day, you’re suddenly down to maybe 2.5 minutes a day… Unless! Unless, unless, unless you spend real-life money on energy-filling items. It’s money-grubby, and I usually deleted those apps after a couple of days because they’re so space-wasting.
Type B games were my weakness. The stories are much higher quality, and you won’t shitty grammatical errors as often. However, you pay upfront for characters’ “routes.” The games typically let you play the introduction, and then they’ll let you play the first chapter of each character so you can decide beforehand which characters might be worth buying. Typically speaking, an hour or two long route is gonna cost you about $3, although that can vary depending on sales that are going on.
Either way, it’s really hard to get any value out of otome apps unless you put a little money into it. They aren’t as free as they first seem!
If you had to choose just one, which specific kink would you like to experience with Hannibal?
Ughhhhhhhhhhhh we’ve talked about his hands waaaay too much for me to pick anything other than choking.
