I thought I’d give a little update on doshikuro, as it’s been what I’ve been playing the most of recently (apart from FGO and my Suikoden 4 playthrough)
I found the “patch” that changes every heroine sprite to have jet black hair. Turns out it’s actually part of the installer, and it’s all controlled by one file that you can delete to revert it back. I tried it out today, and while I can say there’s definitely some appeal (not just for memeing) I’m not sure I’m going to stick with it. Like I said in my previous post, it doesn’t affect the cgs, which kind of takes a lot of the fun/appeal out of using it for the entire game
I’ll be using the rest of this to recap what’s happened thus far. It’s not a lot, but if you’re one of those people who want to go in completely blind and you intend to experience this game, then this is going to be the only warning I give. When I get further into the game, I will use spoiler tagging for these kind of sections, but for right now it’s still early enough to be considered the premise.
Essentially, our protagonist likes black hair, but his family and childhood friend Urara (the girl pictured below) think it’s a problem. They force him to go on a retreat/pilgrimage to cure his affliction, only for him to get caught in a blizzard and almost die inside a cave.
He doesn’t die because a goddess wearing a lion dog mask finds him and in his delirious death like state he proposes to her (he can’t see what she looks like but he can see her hair) She then attempts to save him, and eventually he somehow manages to return to his everyday life.
Later, during the summer, the goddess shows up again and informs him she’s come to be his wife. While he’s perfectly willing to do this, his childhood friend (and tsundere) urara tries to stop it. Only for it to be revealed that Haruto (I just realized I haven’t mentioned MC by name yet) was only save because she accepted him as her servant. If she didn’t share her power with him, he would die.
Currently, after a disastrous first night (Something funny happens, but it’s kind of inappropriate) Haruto is at an all time low, and Urara is trying to convince him that the goddess who came is just a con artist trying to take advantage of him. Lots of turmoil, but now another goddess, the little sister of the goddess who saved Haruto, has come on the scene to straighten things out (and by straighten things out, I’m assuming that it’s just going to make things more complicated)
So yeah, it’s been a fairly entertaining and easy read compared to Sakura no Toki. I’m at present only doing about 200-400 lines per day, but I plan to double that in the coming days, I think.
I think next I update about this game will be after I finish reading a route. That post will be entirely spoiler tagged
