People nowadays can’t be separated from their smartphone and it can be understood because they provide many kinds of entertainment. If you’re a gamer like myself, then games will be the answer for your free time.
Luckily, there are various free otome games available to play on your smartphone. Most of them are freemium, although you still can enjoy them fully without paying a cent.
A female-oriented game which oblige you to participate in “online chatting sessions” in order to progress. As a party organizer of RFA, an organization focused on hosting charity parties, you will be tasked on inviting potential guests while making relationships with another members.
Shadowtime is an episodic VN which is still updated regularly as I write this article. The story mixes RPG and romance as its core. There are only two characters you can pursue, but the RPG aspect makes up for the lack of love interest. What I like about this game is you can change your character’s persona, a feature which lacks in most of free VNs for smartphones.
3. Once Upon a Hallow’s Eve
As a girl who is lost and hurt in a forest after a minor landslide, you find a huge mansion and decide to live there temporarily until you’re well enough to search your way home. You’re not alone: the owners, who are three brothers, also live there. Secrets and stories will reveal during your stay on the said mansion.
To be honest, this VN makes me hungry everytime I play it because cooking is the main plot of Love Spice (Indonesian title: Bumbu Cinta). In this game, you start your new job as a chef in Bayleaf and while you have to deal with your old bully who also works there, your first crush and step brother are always there to comfort you. With nice art and animation, Love Spice is a must try for otome lovers.
5. If My Heart Had Wings
Set in Kazegaura, the story follows Aoi Minase who encounters a wheelchair-bound girl, Kotori Habane, and a beautiful white glider which pushes Aoi to revive the defunct Soaring Club. The game also have animation and alarm feature that can be used outside the gameplay.
