Reviews

"It really feels like it could be the start of something big; through conversations with people and lessons during class, you get peeks at something that could expand into a remarkably big and well developed fantasy universe, and it seems we've only just dipped our toe into it." - Jay Is Games

"Weird barely begins to cover it. Magical Diary is an indie, Japanese style adventure (though not actually from Japan) that’s a little bit visual novel, a little bit RPG, and a whole heck of a lot of Harry Potter. Luckily, it’s also really good fun." - Rock Paper Shotgun

When i first played this game, i didnt like it too much. I guess i expected something different and i wasnt happy with what i got. But that was then, and some time later i tried this game again and i loved it.
Damien and Donald had really satisfying, good routes, that made me very emotional. Seriously, i recommend this game just for them. The other routes are also well done and i enjoyed all of them, although they didnt left such an impression as Donalds and Damiens routes did.
The art is not very good at the first glance, but its actually not bad but just... different? After you get used to it, you start to appreciate it, i think. Although the size of the eyes still bugged me sometimes, but thats something you can easily forget about while playing the game - its written in a way that makes it rather easy to focus your attention on the plot.
Its kind of sad there were almost no cgs, but i guess thats the price for being able to customize your character in a couple of ways.
Oh, and if youre not too much into this whole stat raising thing, there are cheats that you can use to swiftly progress through it by maxing all your stats instantly. Makes life much easier when youre replaying the game many times to get all the endings.
I definitely recommend this game, especially if you like cute GxG romances, as this game has two such routes.

Lovely game, and well put together, but feels like there's the potential for so much more! I never had a chance to use most of my spells, and certain exciting plot elements never resolved as far as I expected.

Magical Diary 2 please!

At first I was skeptical but then I grew to adore this game. But there was immense potential that could be touched upon, specially in Grabiner's ending (which I will admit I played 4 times).

But the story is lovely and really diverse in the love interests and very open about genders which was awesome! Magical Diary 2 please!!
