Humble Hot Date Bundle: This steamy bundle is filled with visual novels, dating sims, and suggestive party games! Date a grasshopper, romance a talking cat on an island, find a date for the high school reunion, and more.
Whelp, it’s that time again, folks. Visual novel time, that is. I really need to start getting through the ones I have. It’s the multiple paths ordeal that always gets to me.
Like, can’t I just get with everyone at once? People do that in real life, why not a video game!
All right. Stepping aside from that outburst, let’s take a gander at the games within this bundle. There’s at least one that’s going to get a hard pass from me. No pun intended, either.
Creature Romances: Kokonoe Kokoro
I mean, if it can be made, then someone out there is probably going to make it. And some people do love their insect collections, so why the hell not make a romantic visual novel regarding a grasshopper lady.
There are furries.
And now there are buggies.
I won’t lie, though. The imagery makes the grasshopper lady very kawaii looking in the banner. …
So, uh, moving on?
I’ve already bought this game from the Humble Hunie Sekai Bundle, so it’ll be placed in a giveaway with my other keys at some point.
A lot of the visual novels I’ve played are mainly boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, boy also sees other girls and is thus torn into who to choose. Well here’s a yuri VN for you–yuri means lesbian if you didn’t know.
Sometimes these types of pairings are actually a lot sweeter.
Because, sugar and spice and everything nice times two.
Another game from the Humble Hunie Sekai Bundle, so another game for the giveaway fodder.
I’m not too sure how I’ll like this one, mainly because of the word “sci-fi” in its description. I’ve never been fond of that genre, thus everything I see that even looks sci-fi, I usually steer clear of.
The features you get from the game do seem interesting, however, so it’s not like I’ll never play it.
Ladykiller in a Bind
Obviously this game is about a killer of ladies who gets stuck in bondage through some weird turn of events. That’s what I got out of the title, at least, but I don’t think I’m on the same page as far as the description goes.
Still, social manipulation, crossdressing, and girls tying up other girls doesn’t sound like a bad time to me. I’m not sure why she’s called the Beast, though, unless it has something to do with the “domme beauty”.
Beauty and the Beast.
Kind of cringe-y, but we’ll see.
Well I didn’t get it from a previous bundle, but I did first get this game from the December 2018 Humble Monthly.
Humble Bundle’s Monthly may have disappointed me a few times, but all the other times it’s come through for me with a variety of game that had been on my Steam wishlist. Don’t judge me, but this was one of those games.
I’m interested in this game, not only for its British comedy and the fact you date cats, but because cats are assholes, and I want to know if this game pegs them as such or does a complete turn-around.
Seriously, they’re assholes.
I joked one time about getting this game.
And now Humble Bundle does this to me.
Honestly, it’s a humorous game to be sure. But I don’t know a lot of people who I’m friends with that have the game, and pecking other peters to get through a pickled mode seems more fun with people you know. Maybe that’s just me, but this may be placed on the backburner for the time being.
Don’t be an angry dick at my decision, either.
The Devil on G-String
Sounds hot, right?
We’ve got a son of an infamous gangster here that everyone calls “God.” Why am I weirdly reminded of Death Note from that.
Anyway, there’s a hot girl that comes into play, of course, but comes along with a criminal. All in all, it sounds interesting. I’d like to see how it plays out with a cocky guy everyone knows and a possible criminal mastermind.
I’m not sure if the girl is actually in cahoots with the criminal or not at this point.
With this collection, you get the main game, Sunrider Academy, as well as the Captain’s Edition and a theme song DLC.
Apparently the Captain’s Edition is a turn-based tactics game. I’m not a very tactical person, unfortunately. I don’t make wise decisions and think things through.
The actual game is a visual novel about a student who’s also the school club manager, and he’s managing both while figuring out which chick he likes more than the others.
Kind of typical.
On another note, I thought the title looked familiar, and this is another game I acquired from the Humble Hunie Sekai Bundle. Man I really need to pay attention to this stuff, don’t I? But it doesn’t matter, as I give the games I have extra keys to away.
Apparently this is the game that makes this whole bundle worth it in the end, because I’ve seen a lot of people start talking about it. I’ve not delved into further details, however, as I like to see things for myself.
It deals with a boy who’s lost his mother and has to deal with his abusive alcoholic father. Kind of takes you back to The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, huh? (If you haven’t played it, please do so.)
This kind of thing gets replayed a lot, though, so I hope it sets itself apart from all the other games and movies and books regarding an alcoholic parent and the death of another.
