Obey Me! – Review Update & F2P Guide
Back in February 2020, when the Obey Me! app was still relatively new, I posted my full review for this RPG Card Game developed by NTT Solmare. Considering the most recent game implementations, I realized that my original post could now be considered slightly outdated and misleading for newcomers regarding the gameplay. For this reason I am giving you an updated version of said post along with a small free-to-play guide based on my personal experience, which may help you getting started.
Obey Me! – FREE RPG Card Game Review
A little before the Christmas holidays I found out about a new app called Obey Me! through a marketing post that randomly showed up in my Instagram feed. While I did talk about Otome games on this blog before, I haven’t downloaded any new app recently due to the Pay-to-Win gameplay that affects at least the 90% of content from this category.

The Love Choice system implemented by Voltage Inc for their newest book Masquerade Kiss, officially released a few hours ago on Love 365 from the Japanese app, has generated a social media war for quite a while now and it definitely won’t cool down anytime soon. The fans who always supported their work because of the rare Pay to Play system are strongly against a “Freemium” mode which will actually force them to pay way more than what a normal, complete story would cost with coins. What is going to happen now?
Otome Review: Love Brings You Home (Taiyo’s Route)
Love Brings You Home is one of the many Otome titles written by Voltage Inc and currently available on the Love 365 app, which is constantly updating with new series and routes even adding old standalone games into it. Taiyo Inami is one of the characters in the series and I managed to take a look at his main story in the past few days being available for free (it expired, so if you want to read it you have to purchase it).
