She Games: I’d Never Thought It Would Come to This

Hello!

I’m icebreaker, your weird friend, keeper of books, watcher of anime, and all-time goofball. So what is this post? What are you doing now? Well, I’ve decided to expand my blog to games.

I can hear your angry cries.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll post my regular stuff! This post in particular is just about me trying some of the most hyped games out there, and giving you my thoughts.

I plan on doing these posts periodically depending on the game and how long I’ll stick to playing it. (I already have a few ideas on a bunch of posts about games in the past.)

I wouldn’t consider myself a gamer, per se, so I’m probably the least qualified person out there. But I want to broaden my horizons *says rather dramatically* and bring to you more content on this blog. (Even though it’s probably scattered with random posts as it is.)

I’ll try my best at playing, and downloading all of your wacky games you’ve all created (looking at you game devs). I won’t play all the games out there of course (I don’t have the programs or storage to do that) but I’ll do my best with what I have!

So I’m starting with something simple: apps.


I’ve been looking around at some games, but one kept *folds hands and sighs deeply in defeat* coming up on a lot of different media sites.

And my friends, that was Mystic Messenger.

I know this game is not really that new, and so I bet a lot of you out there have probably heard of it, and maybe you haven’t. However, if you have heard of it, then you probably already know that this is an otome game (a game create specifically for girls).

Now. *defeated sigh again* I have mentioned that I don’t play otome games (not only for the obvious reasons, but also because it stems from my dislike of visual novel games), (I’m fond of other stuff like RPG games, horror [depends], [some] survival games, etc.) so why would I play this game you ask?

Well, at first I found it through Pinterest, but then thought nothing of it and just kept looking at whatever I was doing. It worked well for a month, then Tumblr kept happening, and I saw lots of fanart all over more Pinterest posts, some Twitter ones, YouTube mentions, friend mentions, even some WordPress posts… As you can see, I couldn’t escape it.

So I became interested. What’s with all this hype? I’ve been seeing lots of posts, art, videos, and pins about this game, so what is it that everybody loves about it? I didn’t really know.

So I downloaded it.

I’ll see for myself, and tell you all my thoughts if this game deserves the hype. Maybe it’ll surprise me, or maybe it won’t, who knows? I’ll tell you my thoughts, and from there you can decide for yourself too, if this game deserves all the love it’s getting.

I’ll won’t post everyday about it, it depends on the time I play, but I’ll post every now and then my progress and thoughts. (Yes, it’ll be “weekly”.)

Thank you for reading, I look forward to making more She Games posts!

  1. I think the premise of Mystic Messenger is cool as well as how to play it– time sensitive. Although…. because it is time sensitive it is difficult to play unless you have a lot of free time or pay to play all of the chats. I played a few routes, but then I got too busy to continue ^_^;
    I hope you have fun with it.

    1. Thank you! The time sensitive thing is pretty cool, but you’re also right, you have to have a lot of time opened up to be able to play. Luckily, I currently have nothing to do, so it works perfect for me. 😀

  2. I’ve never heard of this game, it doesn’t look like something I would play. I love games like Frozen Free fall that really make you think about your next move and provide brain stimulation.

    1. It didn’t look like my kind of thing either, but it’s actually a bit different from how I thought it would be. I haven’t downloaded Frozen Free Fall, but I know what your talking about. Those games are fun to play for me too. 🙂

  3. I think this is a great decision! I actually like when blogs are diverse and have more content other than just books (although I’ll still love a purely bookish blog). My first post was actually about a video game!
    So yeah, I’m looking forward to more of these and your thoughts on Mystic Messenger soon 🙂

    1. I’m glad you like the idea of expanding my blog! I love pure book blogs too, but I wanted to try newer things and see where they take me. Also do you remember the game you wrote about? I’m curious. 😀 I’ll write more about it soon!

  4. This is awesome! I love this post idea. Love it when a blog has a lot of diverse content. Those type of games aren’t really my thing, but I think it’s cool that you’re giving it a try! It’ll be interesting to see what you think of it the more you play it 😀

      1. No problem with self advertising, I do it too. And when we start reading, yeah, I think a certain amount of chapters a night would be best. Also, how do we keep each other posted on our progress/discuss the book? Is it through Goodreads? If so, I can make an account by tonight.

      2. We can start tomorrow. 🙂 And 3 sounds good. We can email each other about the book, and also the questions we’ll ask each other for our post. (And I’m not judging, I gave you my blog email, my main one barely makes sense.)

  5. Hi. I’m creating a murder mystery visual novel! Our free demo will come out in December and it’d be awesome if you checked out my blog in the meantime. I post every Wednesday and currently am doing character spotlights every week and there’s also a page which describes the story with a link to a short excerpt of that story so you can see how the story reads. Please consider following me 🙂

    1. Hello! Sorry it took so long to comment! 😓 I think it’s really awesome that you’re creating a mystery visual novel! 😄 (I’ve been playing a bunch of them lately, but haven’t made a post yet.) Ike love to look at your demo once it’s out! I’ll go check out your blog!
