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

A charming, well-written dating sim. Obviously created by a smal team on a budget, but the characters an the storylines make up for it. Awesome depictions of female frienship and solidarity, which is rare in this genre. Highly Reccomended.

At first glance I thought this game would be an ironic adventure just for laughs...

And then this game made me legitimately choose to willingly give up my soul.

10/10, also Ellen is pretty damn cute, recommended~

It seems I screwed up because at the begginning I ran from a ritual freshmen ♥♥♥♥ party, so my character was never truly accepted and that lowered my status, somehow.

Weird things happened but I felt I had little to no control or influence over them, so who cares.
I wish the dungeon parts were more like the Grimrock ones or at least BDSM oriented.

8/10 would Drama Queen again.

Managed to avoid becoming Snape's child bride.

10/10. Would stare hopelessly at a locked door because I'm a white mage again.

Nice elements of gameplay, dungeons solvable in different ways depending on your main 'magic colour/element', interesting story branches.

FINE. THE GAME IS FINE. THERE I SAID IT. FINE.

FIRST 2 HOURS:
I played this for longer than I would have liked. I really cannot recommend this - it is basically a playable novel that is not that fun. Lots of reading with a meh storyline. I thought it had potential for the first hour, but quickly lost interest.

SECOND 2 HOURS:
Yeah I came back. I mean what will happen with all this romance? BTW I still don't recommend.

The puzzles have alot of solutions making it fun to try and solve them trough diffrent types of magic. The story is okay and gives enough to play trough 2 or 3 of the 5 rommance paths depending on your intresst in trying diffrent spells.

Ok I'm not going to lie, if I saw this 2 months back I would think,
"Nope boring, don't like dating sims,"
Then I bought Dandelion Wishes Brought to You, and it opened my eyes to how funny and sweet these games are, their not just so silly girls fantasy, most of them have a really good story and good/funny charters that you can't help but fall in love with.
And this is another, I didn't think I'd like it as much as I did but I love it, I have laughed so much from this game it hurts and yes tears have fallen from my eyes.
The art style might not be the best but it's simple and that's nice.
I now love dating simes because most of the time they have a better story then some shooters or other games, and the best part is that their is more then one story, since there is different charters everyone will have thier favourites and their least favourite which is the best part. (My favourite is Damien, what can I say deamon boys capture my heart hahah :3 )
So if you want to have a laugh and not rage quit buy this game I will garentie that at least a part of this game will make you laugh, if it doesn't well done to you, because I'm in stiches. :3

Kissed a Plush Bunny. Kissed a fairy. Had a lesbian relationship. Offered my soul to a demon. Had to go to detention a few times. Got my bra thrown around in the cafeteria. Got spanked by a teacher. Accidentally married said teacher. Got my memories taken by said teacher.

My line of thinking for this game:

I'll only play for a couple hours till I get the cards.
Oh, heck, might as well get these easy achievements.
These little dungeon exams are actually kind of cool...
My demon boyfriend just did what?? Nu-uh, not on my watch.
...
5 hours later, all achievements complete, I put on my robe and wizard hat. Don't ♥♥♥♥ with me ♥♥♥♥♥, I'm the mightiest sorceress of the lands.

This is a very decent game. 9/10
This is basically a game about getting yourself (girl) a boyfriend or girlfriend
Which also includes puzzle solving, dungeon exploring, role playing and taking lessons to level your magic level up
It took me 6 hours to finish only one part of the storyline and it's great
It uses the same VN engine for Long Live The Queen
Even though you might not like the look of characters in this game
You should really try this due to its excellent entertaining plot

A little bit RPG, a little bit school sim, and a dash of dating sim drawn together with an anime art style. Look out Hogwarts, the U.S.A. has its own school of magic. You take on the role of a female protagonist starting her first year in this visual novel style game. Basically, this is a Choose Your Own Adventure or Fantasy Fighting type of experience. I have a few of those game books and they are generally designed to defeat you. Magical Diary, on the other had, was more of a laid back experience and one I'm more likely to spin back up to try out the different branches that are offered. I had fun playing this and wouldn't mind seeing a sequel so that I can start my junior year.
