1931: Scheherazade at the Library of Pergamum

#1 Postby hanako » Sat Sep 15, 2012 2:42 am

A new mystery otome adventure from the makers of Academagia!
It's 1930, and as the world slides ever deeper into the Great Depression, Scheherazade 'Sadie' Keating sets out on her first year of college - a year of travel, romance, danger and discovery. Together with friends and family, she'll chase her parents' last mystery across five continents, and choose a future for herself along the way.


Basically, this is a complex skill-raising adventure game with a high degree of freedom of action. Travel around the world, learn different skills, use those skills to try and get past challenges, solve mysteries, pursue five different romance options, and become an awesome archeologist adventurer heroine.

I'll leave you with two thoughts:

* About five times as much text as Magical Diary. BIG GAME!
* You can romance an ancient mummy.

Watch the trailer here

You can purchase the game from this link

You can download a demo of the game here Be warned though, it's a whopper! (We did say this was a big game.)

This game is currently only available for Windows.

I was looking at this one on their website! I can't wait to try the demo, although I get the sneaky suspicion I'm going to end up buying it!

There is now a Windows demo link available here

The download is pretty large! but it will take you through about the first month's worth of game, introduce you to some of your cast of options (from a first meeting, I am taking an interest in the bespectacled young professor) and give you a chance to fool around with the stat-raising, adventure-taking side of the game and let you head off on your first journey to Egypt.

I must say, between this, the company's other game, and Cinders, this affiliate games section is going to suck every spare dollar from my wallet.

I quite liked the demo, the art deco style is unique and interesting, and the implementation of stats is well done. I'm definitely considering buying it.

I have gotten to the point where I stop playing the demos cause I just end up buying the game when I don't have the extra money to be doing that :(

Just bought it recently, and it is very good so far. I have yet to finish one playthrough, but the bits I've seen hint at LOADS of replay value. It's very engaging, and I love the sassy protagonist and her entourage.

It is a really fun game and read. It is incredibly detailed. I know they researched the heck out of this. The romances are awesome. You can not help but fall in love with the guys. There are 110 endings. Unfortunately there is no gallery to track your endings. It is well worth the money.

Over 100 hours of game play.

6 different "Main" endings: 5 guys 1 Family. = For total of 6
You can Have Romance or Friendship with guys or Priority Family For a total of now 11
Each ending has an individual ending for every 10 points. For a total of 110 endings. Each ending has different text. What you read for say a score of 10 Family is completely different for a score of 100 Family.
