I started playing this game called X-Note late last night/early this morning and it is an otome game which for those of you who do not know what otome games are I shall tell you. An otome game (乙女ゲーム, lit. “maiden game”) is a video game that is targeted towards a female market, where one of the main goals, besides the plot goal, is to develop a romantic relationship between the female player character and one of several male, or occasionally female characters. This genre is most established in Japan, and is generally made up of visual novels and simulation games (particularly dating sims).
Story of X-Note
10 years ago, Essi’s mother died in a questionable accident. She left a USB flash drive with a locked folder called “X-note”. Unable to understand the purpose of it, Essi continued living her life as a normal junior high school student. However, Essi is hardly normal, for she possesses power beyond normal human.
Essi’s quiet life was interfered by a sudden visit of a young man named Yuon. He invited her to investigate a murder case and a mysterious disappearance in the Xen Institute, a school deeply related to Essi’s mother. Tempted by the possibility of unlocking “X-note” and solving her mother’s mysterious death, Essi decided to take his request. But what awaited her there was a lot more than what she could possibly imagine…
In this game you have three guys to choose from; you may pick Anon, Oure, Yuon or you could play the game three times so you may get the three different boys.
The first time I played this game I had chose Anon first. I have taken a few screen shots for you to look at.
The second time I played I had chose Oure. Again I have taken a few screen shots for you to look at.
I will update once I play again and choose Yuon (so maybe sometime tomorrow?)
