One day, you might find yourself browsing the Steam store. On this day, you may stumble apon a weird game called 100% Orange Juice. When presented with this title, the first thought through your mind will probably be : "Wat."
Do not be alarmed, this is a normal reaction. It was my reaction, and the reaction of many others who would soon take the journey through Orange Juice together. A game that you buy as a joke, because it looks silly. A game that you continue playing after one match, because it looks interesting. A game that absorbs you, takes control of your gaming habits, and gives you the most fun boardgame experience of your life.
This is the story of 100% Orange Juice. A game about chibi-anime videogame characters that murder each other in cold blood to get stars and be the first to reach level 6. A game so heavily reliant on RNG that you will go from praising the lord RNGeezus to cursing all that is holy within a matter of seconds.
The game is repetitive, without a doubt. Each match has the same objective - collect stars or beat enemies, and land on a home space to level up. First person to do this five times wins the match. So what makes it so replayable, so enjoyable, so...citrus-y? The online mode, somehow. Playing with friends and strangers alike over the internet, with weird characters and a constantly changing goal in mind (thanks to the disgustingly RNG-reliant system for EVERYTHING) really makes this game one that you can play over and over without ever really getting tired of the concept. The game doesn't have many, if any bugs. The developers clearly care and add new content at a lively pace. The community is friendly, and the experience unique.
A great experience that most videogame-enthusiasts should give a shot - especially for the low price of $6.
