Let me just say I promise this isn’t an ad. No one has ever been crazy enough to sponsor me but if you want to…
In any case, a little while ago I got a hankering to play a nice little old school iOS (in my case Android) Otome of the Voltage type. You know, one of those silly innocent, free phone app games. It had been a while so I decided to see what was available and I discovered they now had a few BL offerings. This is something I had never seen before in app form so I decided to give them a try, and made the questionable decision of calling them Blotomes (someone probably already thought of that but don’t burst my bubble).
Anyways, what I discovered was Abracadabra Games. They have a number of both traditional and BL otomes, following that standard you can only read a number of chapters a day but can pay money to read ahead. There are a few minigames as well. If you’re familiar with otome apps, you’ll have seen these mechanics before.
I’m currently playing a Wizardry Enchantment (Asato and Mao’s route), which is a somewhat Harry Potter type story full of magical creatures and wizarding exams. As well as the Broken Clock (Serge and Yayoi’s route) which seems to be a victorian adventure with princes and butlers and visiting college students.
I just wanted to say I’m really enjoying them. They’re well paced so I’m not too frustrated about the daily reading limit, it’s just enough. And you have plenty of chances to earn items to help you read ahead without having to spend real money.
The art is quite pretty, the sprites are beautiful and the CGs are fun. So far the Broken Clock has been perfectly innocent and cute while a Wizardly Enchantment is a little spicier (with some rather naughty scenes) and more comedic. I haven’t finished a route yet so I can’t vouch for the whole games but I’ve been having a lot of fun.
We’re not talking masterpieces here but if you’ve been looking for some pleasant BL games you might want to give this studio a try. They seem to have a cat boy one so I already know what I’m trying next!
That’s it for now! Go play! (PS. That header pic is also from one of their games)
