Quick followup of this post to remind readers of some interesting games now available and others coming in the near/distant future.
Wicked Willow is now available on Steam.
A visual novel set in 1993, Wicked Willow will turn your moral compass upside down. Will you learn the ways of a witch from someone you can’t trust? Would you turn trees into monsters to save a forest from clearcutters? Would you sacrifice your soulmate’s memory to stop a war? And speaking of soulmates, how far would you go to fight for a love that society calls wicked?
In Wicked Willow, the story is the star. There are no stat meters to juggle, no annoying failstates, no tedious puzzles, and no parsing through spoiler-laden guides to find the “true” ending. You will never think “what do they want me to say here?” when presented with a choice. Instead, every choice is equally valid and can be experienced and enjoyed on its own terms, with its own consequences and plot twists.
The game features multiple yuri romance options, including one transgender.
A FREE 18+ DLC recently became available for the Steam version of Lucy Got Problems so peeps who purchased that copy of the game or plan to now have a bit more incentive to do so.
Strawberry Vinegar is now available on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and XBOX One. Check out my review of it HERE to help decide whether this game is worth buying on consoles if you haven’t picked it up on PC yet.

Death End re;Quest 2 is scheduled for a Summer 2020 release on PS4 and PC (Steam).
More information can be found on the DE2 homepage HERE. Spoiler warning for readers who haven’t beaten the game or got the True End yet.
The next spinoff in the Neptunia franchise is coming to the West in 2021. It’s Neptunia Virtual Stars. It is an Action and Rhythm game hybrid. We have seen examples of both in this franchise from games like Mega Tagmension and Producing Perfection. The former was better than the latter. We shall see how well both come together in one title.
Besides The All Mighty Nepster and her fellow CPUs (Dunno if the other two good CPUs and the CPU Candidates will be in the game or not) they’re joined by many real life Virtual Youtubers.
See how many you can recognize in this preview.
The Guest VTubers show up around the 2:40 mark. Before that is a gameplay preview.
Neptunia Virtual Stars is scheduled for a 2021 release on the PS4. A PC version will follow soon after.
Perfect Gold is a coming-of-age yuri visual novel about two former friends who escape detention in order to celebrate the Sunflower Festival. Set in the magical city of Castlecoast, readers get to know Audrey Clary, an alchemy student and heiress who secretly dreams of a different life, and Marion LaRue, a rebellious elemental magic student in search of someone she once loved.
