One of the franchises I enjoy is Touhou which spoiler alert doesn’t have anything to do with Undertale I mean if it did it would have to be back when when floppy disks was how you got your game on like Touhou was. Anyway most of them are bullet-hell games and this one is actually a fan game of the franchise. Which I had found somewhere on Moriya shrine which is where I find new games to play from the franchise.
Labyrinth of Touhou is a wonderful JRPG game by Tasogare Frontier. It was great but when I started playing the English patch was not there so I went through most of the beginning not knowing what was going on but enjoyed it anyway. The big tree that they are exploring allows the ability to level, find more characters, find items, and of course ascend more into this tree. Now there is an English patch that I have yet to get the complete English patch though I’m sure it’s completed by now. Anyone that enjoy RPG games would like this game. though JRPG are more difficult than regular RPG games.
There aren’t many things I could say are exactly warning wise about it just if you like Touhou you already know what you’re getting yourself in a difficult game that may take years to beat and a lot of tears.
The game Antagonist is a game about an actor that play an antagonist in certain films most of the names are a play on another character of a popular franchise. Which are quite comical. In my opinion it wasn’t all that amazing but the idea was just so interesting I had to play it. I can say I was impressed for what I expected it to be. Which was a comical game about an antagonist actor actually trying to be good.
The battles were alright pretty easy for the most part. They were probably very easy just so you could progress and get to the story than actually giving a challenge I only had one or two battles that were a problem. Visuals very well made and the character development is pretty awesome too. Even though it is a bit cliché in the beginning it is a very enjoyable game.
Here is the link to the game if you want to check it out.
Off, originally in French, is a game as if Alice in wonderland and mother or earthbound had a child and made it even more unsettling. It was very interesting and a pleasant experience of a game even with it’s unsettling music and strange essence in the places and anything that is encountered. The main character is a guy named the batter which his mission is to be the purifier which I thought was a very dark term to give someone that just comes in to kill things, of course because the enemies are ‘purified’. But of course dark is the point of the game I believe. The game’s music for fighting is very strange and actually upset my nerves than unsettle me. The RPG portion was alright no need of amazing RPG skills were needed as long as killing a few things here and there over constant level grinding. There is three endings but I only stuck with the one I had gotten which wasn’t one I enjoyed which of course was probably one most get on their first play. It made me content enough to consider it a closed game.
Warnings consist of a bit of blood, unsettling music, some flashy lights, and dark themes.

IB is an adventure game with a lot of horror elements. IB, the main character, is nine and goes to an art gallery and finds herself trapped in the art gallery her parents take her to. It gave me an Alice in Wonderland vibe with the craziness that goes on in the art gallery. The music and atmosphere does a very good job which is a very amazing trade for the pixelated graphics. The girl meets a few people on the way good or bad is determined by the player. There are in fact ten endings all quite diverse I have gotten at least five of the ten endings.
I personally thought the story was interesting and the chase scenes weren’t all that bad considering I consider chase scenes very annoying like in Ao Oni. The puzzles were decently challenging of course after already figuring them out the first time it is practically muscle memory. The soundtrack was really nice and honestly I wouldn’t mind listening to it without playing the game. The health mechanic was also very interesting.
Here is the link to IB if interested.
Be aware there are some grotesque themes and some blood.
