A must have for mimikaki fans. Short compared to other Tomimi Retreat works but still a great value, especially if you're mainly just looking for ear cleaning. They could have padded the time with lots of silence or random miscellaneous noises, but they didn't, and I appreciate that. Instead, you get 20 minutes of focused, quality ear cleaning. The sound design is rich and varied, ranging from light scritches to cottony flicks to deep, soothing sweeps. The work is punctuated with just enough dialogue to enhance the sense of realism, without being so much that it dilutes the ear cleaning sounds. Yui Asami's performance here is mainly soft and calming, with just a touch of cute, a perfect complement to the theme of a "midday nap". Not too loud or energetic, but not too monotonous or emotionless either. The ear cleaning segues naturally to the sound of sleeping breathing sounds, which wrap up the experience quite nicely.

This is pure ASMR sounds, no voice.

Recorded fully binaural, and more like a wordless roleplay, it's a session of:

Cicada noises, Shampooing, Toweling, Hairdryer, Ear Massage (not licking), Ear Cleaning.

All of those are in excellent quality, and in a full real environment, with sounds happening all around the listener, and moving around between the ears a lot as well as happening to both ears when applicable. Only the very last track has a clear left/right split.

Super-relaxing, well tuned, and with enough variety to not get boring or predictable.

Perfect and soothing tones with a voice that conveys confidence, subtle amusement of that kind of someone who has everything under control and life's worries are merely passing. A voice you can trust, a voice you want to trust to relax into. After a day of holding yourself up with everyday stresses, this voice is one whose tone conveys that all will be alright, so don't worry about life's stresses for now and let your mind drift.

Nice choice of easy listening music at the beginning and end, which introduces and perpetuates a relaxing mood.

Thank you Ms. Akatsuki and everyone on the team for this production.

It's really relaxing especially with the soft talking from the adorable voice from the va. I'm not into those abuse thing or how ever you called it but I do not mind it. The only downside is that the volume of asmr is a bit low even with a volume booster you can barely hear and I also wished that it was a bit longer so I can enjoy it more or longer. I hope they can fix the volume issue in a update if that is done then there is no complain further.

A take on the famous game B*kosuka Wars. You move from east to west in a semi turn-based fashion, growing your team and power level by searching for hidden items.

You lose if G*ku or B*lma are defeated. Patience and caution are required to keep the defenseless B*lma out of harm's way. Luck is a factor in keeping G*ku alive, as there's always some random element to the battles. Each party member you find has their own advice to give and a special ability to discover. There are several boss characters along the way; some puzzle solving is required to reveal each one.

Honestly, this was one of my favorite games from 2017. The process of figuring everything out and ultimately beating the game was a lot of fun. There are no continues, so a game over means a complete restart every time. My full run (after several failed attempts) took a little over an hour.

The music is good, the sound is "nostalgic." If you've got the patience for some trial and error I think you'll find this is a rewarding game.

A sound of drop, some beautiful themes

Sound of Drop - fall into poison - Original Soundtrack

$4.02 $5.7630% OFF / 453JPY648JPY
An original soundtrack of an aquarium horror adventure game "Sound of Drop - fall into poison -". Includes two vocal songs.

  • Release: May/04/2018
  • Purchased: 2x

When I have play to “Sound of drop – fall of poison” I found that it was too bad that there was not a “musical room” (or an OST) as some of the music are really enthralling. So, when I saw this product, it was an auto-buy.

To be honest, most of the tracks are not top of the art as they have been created to give a feeling, an atmosphere, to a scene without disturb the attention of the player from the scene. However, I found that the opening theme (short and long version, Shizuku no oto) and the main menu theme (Sound of drop) are really amazing so I am really happy of my purchase.The product is cheap and have a good price-quality ratio.

Moreover, the original vocal track of the OST (C*U) turn out to be very good too. My only claim will be that the 3 bonus tracks are instrumental versions of the vocal tracks. The claim is not about the quality of these tracks, this is more personal as I just do not like instrumental version in general.

Pickup!Amazingly good platformer

Rosenkreuzstilette

This game is a 2D side scrolling action platformer.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Rosenkreuz Stilette (Stiletto of rosicrucianism) is an homage to Megam*n but include also other references like M*rio, C*stelv*nia, B*mber M*n or even T*uhou. The game can be divided in two parts. In the first one, you choose which one of the 8 stages you want to challenge and gain a new weapon when defeating the boss of the selected stage. The second one is more classic and is composed of multiple stages that you challenge in a linear order. I was pleasantly surprised by the lifespan of the game and the length of the second part, which allow you to fully enjoy the use of the weapons that you have get in the first part.

The art and design of the various stages are great, each of them having a strong feeling. My favorites are the stage of Schwer Muta (full of dumb traps) and the stage of the garden in the last boss fortress (full of reversible gravity). Bosses themselves are good, the first eight have their specific personality (cool girl, loyal warrior, introvert girl, dumb bird…) and those of the final stages are often original (I am fond of the two first bosses in Sepperin stage). The last boss is the type of character that I like, cutely evil.

About the game itself, without surprise, it is a platformer action game and falling often results in the lost of one live. Against the bosses, the main difficulty is to found the weapon which is the weak point of the boss. Thankfully, the “heal potions” that you found are not lost when you use a continue so you can create a stock by willingly dying in stages where you can easily get one of them. Without this trick, the game difficulty could be pretty high.

Lastly, the story is interesting with a twist introducing the last boss. Dialogues between the heroin and foes are well managed and do not disturb the action part. I highly recommend the game if you like platformer. Strangely, the sequel, Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel , has been produced under another circle name, just use the search tool to find it.

This game is really fun and has a lot of effort put into it. It's basically lik those Match 3 puzzle games but with a twist. Combos take away from your soul gem and it's like a balancing act on keeping your gem clean and beating the enemy.

The voice acting is almost close and is decent. Just needs better quality.

If I were to have one complaint it's the fight against Walpugrisnacht at the end with Sayaka. I always die when I do enough combos just to put a dent on the enemy and she's clearly the weakest of all the girls. And it has been driving me insane.

Another probably sad thing is the site doesn't exist anymore but C'est Lavie.

It seems that my initial review write up wasn't able to send, so here we go again. Everytime Ruruga releases soemthing I immediately buy them as soon as I get money and this one does not disappoint.

This amazing pack has a lot of resources ranging from UI, equipment, food, items and everything you expect from an Icon Pack made by Ruruga.

Despite being Japanese centric, there is enough items here that you can use for a fantasy game like Minerals, Fish and so forth. So it's still definitely worth the buy even if you are not interested in making a Japanese-themed game ever.

Please keep making more resources!
