To win their hearts, build you intelligence and strength, keep getting promoted at work and move out of your folks home and into your own apartment.Welcome to Otome, visual dating games made with women in mind.For Women’s History Month, Manga Gamer interviewed women game creators and localizers, and one of them was No, Thank You!!! Most of her experience is of drawing women, and NTY was her first venture into the BL genre.“The hardest thing was probably the fact that you have to get both of the guys’ faces on screen at the same time,” she says.
You play as Chizuru, who disguises herself as a man to travel to the capital of Kyoto in search of her missing father.
NTY also features a cast of targets with a much wider range of body types than found in typical BL games, with some of the men well past middle age and even body-hair toggle options for different preferences.
I say "targets" because all the men you end up in relationships with are billed as "straight" and Haru is an overly-energetic, horny puppy who admits he partakes in "sexual harassment" as a work pastime.
While all you need to be “good at” is reading and making choices -- don’t worry if you don’t normally play games -- there are some important things to know about how these games work.
Generally you meet several characters, and will have to choose one to court.
