Keeping you updated on the latest in English otome games!
Here you'll find information about traditional visual novel style GxB otome games, RPGs with otome elements, as well as GxG games made for a female audience.
An otome game (乙女ゲーム, otome gēmu, literally meaning girl game) is a story based video game that is targeted towards a female market. Generally one of the goals, besides the main plot goal, is to develop a romantic relationship between the female player character and one of several male, or occasionally female characters.

"In order to inherit an enormous amount of money…I have to marry my brother?!

I Only Date Free!: Looking for a Writer for Gou’s route
Due to some circumstances in her professional life (good news for her, though!) Bex has had to step out of the team, which left Haru and Gou’s routes half-open.
We quickly invited Grey onto the team, as she was the runner-up choice of Haru writer! Please all welcome her kindly!
Still, this means that Gou’s route is now open for applications. We haven’t gotten an application before that we were satisfied with and we are a little sad to announce that if we don’t get any, we will have to drop this route (which we really don’t want to do!).
Release date (Windows, Mac OS, Linux)

“‘You want a… demonstration of what my party will be like? Very well. I grant you one.’
You are cordially invited to the Annual Valdemar Halloween Extravaganza. Two weeks of luxury await you. Let’s see if you can keep up the masquerade…”
The full version of Halloween Otome by Synokoria has been released! You can download it for free here.
(There’s an update to this patch, which can be found here.)
As a slightly belated Valentine’s day present, Jess and I spent the last few hours attempting to hack/translate Menou’s trial up to when the OP starts. Obviously we are super n00b hackers so it’s not a 100% smooth patch and thus you can’t change the names of the characters, nor does the backlog sync very well with the English text. But it’s otherwise working up to the OP!
So how does this work?
- Download Menou’s trial and unzip it.
- go to the arc folder and backup scenario.xp3 by renaming it and putting it elsewhere.
- copy and paste the scenario.xp3 file you get from here to the arc folder to replace that original scenario.xp3.
- At the start, choose to keep the default names.
- Voila! The beginning part is in English!
Unfortunately it isn’t very long but if you have any other hacking suggestions, wording advice in English or corrections or want to offer us help to finish the trial, please feel free to leave us a note somewhere, otherwise please enjoy our stupid little attempt <3
The DEMO is now downloadable!

- This demo covers only the introductory chapter of the game, in which you meet all the characters you can date. At the end of this chapter, you choose which character route you want to follow. However, in this demo you will not be able to go further than the choice of character.
- This demo is not the final product for the introductory chapter: there might (most probably) be some differences between the version now and the version in the complete game.
- There is no music in the demo. There will be in the completed game.
- The CGs are still missing from the demo. Sorry for the gray screens, but the CG art could not be finished on time for this demo to come out with it.
That said, we’d also like to thank the winners of the giveaway for the feedback they’ve given us on the rough version of the demo:
We hope you all have a great time playing through this introductory chapter!
Happy Valentine’s Day from us all,
- the I Date Free! team

Cinders is on the last stretch of her road towards
world domination Steam release. We currently sit at #4, with the highest position to date being #2. Which is honestly pretty crazy! THANKS! :)
If we can get a female-centric visual novel up to #1, that would be all kinds of awesome, so it’s time for one final push! If you haven’t voted yet, here’s the link.
