I really really like it; Kikyu has more like an "yasashi"-type voice, while Alice is more of a little-sister-like voice.

Personally I enjoy Kikyu much better, because Alice's voice just annoys me a lot with her higher pitch voice when I'm trying to sleep. I love Kikyu's sheep counting. There is something to it.

If you are using Galaxy, tune it to Tube Amp; maybe it's just for me, but it sounds so much better than other EQ.

If you want to draw backgrounds then this is the set for you. It has video tutorials on how to set up the brushes for drawing, alongside some pdfs for those who can read Japanese.

It's an older set that could benefit with an update to Photoshop CS6 or CC standards. But it provides you the raw images it used for the ABR files so you can convert them yourself. Pick this up~

Sequel to a game where you date birds. 11/10.

That's the short version. The full opinion? This is a surprisingly enjoyable sequel to a surprisingly enjoyable game. This game has the same unique charm that the first did; the characters are great. The jokes and development of the birds more than make up for the shortening in choices compared to the first. I love it. But- it's important to note that this game isn't so romance based, nor do you make the same branching choices as in the first. But I love it all the same. Buy it!!

Legions of robots are trampling our peaceful kingdom! A (currently) 6-stage Early Access 2D platformer with a kemono otoko no ko protag.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Sorcerland is an interesting RPG that takes place in a fictional world of humanoid animals, and is currently in a war against a faction of robots. You play as one of the three characters on the game's cover; Alines the blue cat, Rabina-Lop the brown rabbit, or Machina the robotic pony, and they use magic in different ways to defeat the robot enemies.

Each character plays differently;

- Alines is a very melee-heavy character, focusing on being up close and hitting hard. His attacks are fast, and he can attack multiple times in succession for a big impact on the enemy's health. He's also able to run really fast. Blue = speed in video games, after all!

- Rabina-Lop is the caster type of character, using magic over melee. His main form of magic is Ice, but he can also use electricity. Don't be fooled by his cute poses, he can deal massive damage from a distance, and despite his low health and mobility, he's a strong character when used right!

- Machina is the tank; heavy firepower, slow movement. He can use an array of guns, blades, and his own hooves as offense, and he can use them for defense as well. He has higher defense, but he moves really slow. He's probably the hardest to play as, but it's fulfilling!

Oh, did I mention the playable trio is all male? That's right, they're crossdressing, but with a reason! Their magic is based on their lewdness. That's right, the more scantily clad, the more powerful. How silly it is, but it gives a unique flavor to the game. One villain is a woman who is pretty much naked, and she's a scary sorceress; possibly the hardest boss in the current release! (as of 11/29/2014)

This game has controller support, and comes with a picture with controls. It's very easy to play, and for less than one dollar, it's definitely worth the price. The developer hasn't posted anything on his blog since November 2014, but I hope he posts an update soon! I'm itching to see the rest of the story unfold, even if I'm not fluent in Japanese!

Blue Port J: Summer Sky Prelude is the story of three girls, an island with a hidden treasure, and mystical insects with curious properties. I bought this game on January 9th, 2014, and fell in love with it as soon as I booted it up. (The game, that is.)

The game offers three different control methods: mouse and keyboard, keyboard only, or gamepad. The mouse and keyboard option is unvable for me. The keyboard only option is a little better, but relies on a control setup that felt awkward for me. The game plays beautifully with a gamepad, however, so that's what I'd recommend.

The levels are detailed and creative, with air pockets placed strategically and tools and skills obtained through the story to bypass obstacles. This game can be fiendishly difficult at times (such as one segment where you need to find your flashlight in the dark and navigate a tunnel maze with few air pockets and starting w/about half your air...drowned so many times), and the puzzles take some abstract thinking and studying to figure out. I even emailed FoxEye himself at one point asking how to solve the last puzzle! (It was incredibly obvious in hindsight. :P)

All in all, Blue Port J is an enjoyable, charming, and interesting little adventure. It all works quite well together, and even after beating the story (~6 hours for me) I spent a lot of time just swimming in the beautiful locales. Highly recommended.

Just make sure you sign up as soon as you buy it. I didn't, and a year after buying, my computer derped and I had to reformat. I need to buy it again.

Quite frankly, this is the best translated yuri visual novel out there.

Atmosphere

It's very atmospheric like the description says. Throughout most of the novel, there's a soothing, peaceful atmosphere that is very relaxing. However, at times, when it wants to, it excels at pulling your heart strings by being melancholy. The music does a great job of assisting the writing in creating the atmosphere, even if the number of tracks is sparse.

Art

The art is great and unique. Granted, there aren't a lot of CGs and only 2 character sprites, but they get the job done.

Character/Story

The characters and story are pretty good as well. It's short and takes place almost entirely in one room, but within that short time span and limited setting, the characters are fleshed out to the point that a reader could emphasize with them pretty well. While I would love it to be longer, it does not by any means feel incomplete.

Conclusion

Buy it. I'm confident yuri fans out there will like this VN like I did, even if it's a bit different from the yuri VNs that are currently translated. Perhaps even romance fans who normally are not into yuri will be enamored by this game.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Her voice is very gentle and cute, her soft singing/humming is absolutely adorable. There's also great variety of ASMR sounds (ear cleaning, hair cutting, message, ear nibbling ..) always accompanied by the soft breathing and whispering voice.
The recordings are split into two sound environments: 1) inside with crackling hearth fire sounds and 2) outside with nature/bird sounds. Both environments beautifully add to the atmosphere and have a well chosen sound volume. The length for both environments are about 1,5 h total.
The sound quality is splendid, both mp3 and lossless wav files are provided. There is no constant disturbing/buzzing noise as often noticed in similar products (judging from my hi-fi headphones).

None of the sounds/voices are annoying, too loud or high pitched which guarantees a constant and undisturbed relaxing experience.
This is a lengthy, high-quality masterpiece for lovers of ASMR and gentle voice relaxation.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

SorcerLand is quite a spunky little platformer if there was one. Taking cues from things like the 'Megaman Zero' series and the like, you're able to pick from one of 3 base ( and then unlockable and soon to be added extra ) cast, each with their own strengths and weakness, to fight off a horde of robotics causing terror around the land.

The sprite work and animation for this game is really top notch, able to see very tiny details in movement and idle poses, and attacks feel fluid. The content is also rather interesting turn, as it plays off of 'cross dressing' fetish for the main three ( all three are males dressed in feminine clothing/styles ) while the unlockables all seem to be females with more 'revealing' attires.

Otherwise you're getting quite a lot for only a dollar's worth of payment at writing. A plethora of stages, and a growing list of playables. If there's any quibble, it's the locked screen size or somewhat limited controls depending on set up.

Overall it's hard to turn it down at its almost free price tag.

[Royalty Free] Orchestra for RPG - Sound Material Collection vol.1 - HOME

$6.91 / 756 JPY
Contains 11 classic tracks which can be used for creating RPG. (themes: village, heroine, town, etc. )

I was sold by the trial samples in the description and I have to say that these are really well composed! For those who are curious, here are track types you can get from this piece:

1 Title Song
1 Opening Song
2 Church Themes
2 Character Themes (for Heroines)
1 Elegy Song
4 Town Themes

The title song fits a lot and reminds me of le olde JRPG songs which is a plus! The opening song reminds me of those prologue/intro songs you hear in games before the adventure starts. It can also pass as an ending song or even a drama climax song. It's versatile enough.

The Character themes are the best songs out of this pack hands down. My only gripe is the Church 1 theme had really "meh" choir samples. But the 2nd Church Song is great and reminds me of DQ dungeon boss songs.

The Town themes are great and reminds me of Dragon Quest and Gust music on some areas. Town 3 is probably my favorite out of the set. Town 4 is a snowy village type of song, just stating that if you are looking for one.

Overall, aside from my gripes with Church 1 track, I recommend this piece.
