Today I have seven free kinetic novels by Kudo Masahiro for you. All of them are about different birds and every story has some kind of moral.
All of the KNs are very short, but perfect for a little snack on the way. If you liked the other stories from Kudo Masahiro (Ghost Fall, Red Ogre and Blue Ogre), you probably won’t be disappointed by them.
All kinetic novels can be read online, thanks to the user “Alte”. They are available in Japanese, English, and German. You can find an overview of all seven stories here. Or just pick a story from here:
East Tower by roseVeRte is an episodic visual novel series that is available for smartphones and computers; now also officially in German (with Japanese voice acting). The game is divided into 4 paths; Akio, Takashi, Kuon, and Kurenai. Each episode is about one of the four boys and you’ll learn more about the plot. It is recommended to play the series in the shown order.
The game is not only an otome game, it is also very funny and romantic. Since the female protagonist changes her gender in the virtual world, there will also be funny BL scenes. You can buy the episodes here on Steam: Akio Takashi(coming soon)
Princess Battles is a visual novel with otome elements and a strategic card battle system by Nekomura Games. You are Princess Lillian (name changeable) and you have to defend your position in the kingdom. You can romance one out of four boys and become a famous card battler. Which one do you choose? The prince, your tutor, a referee, or even the shady card trader?
Your decisions and your card battle skills influence the outcome and lead to one out of many different endings. Furthermore, you can unlock new outfits for Lillian and collect cards. In the freeplay mode, you can battle your opponents as much as you want.
The game offers many endings, a lot of CGs, two game modes, and a funny, romantic story. It is available on Steam.
Caves n’ Chasms is a jump and run game by Chronicle Games with RPG elements. In more than 30 levels you dig through three underground worlds, fight enemies, and collect resources in order to improve your drill and unlock other bonus content.
The game is available for iOS and Android. The German translation was done by me. Check it out!
It’s been three years since the original Sleepless Night was released. The game was developed in just one month. In the following years, there’ve been many translations, ports for smartphones, a sequel, a spin-off, and other things are planned.
Today I’m happy to announce Sleepless Night REMASTERED. With new HD background art (1920×1080), an improved soundtrack, a new GUI, a list with all endings, music room, gallery, more translations, and more surprises. If the game lands on Steam, you can also look forward to achievements and trading cards!
There will be no changes to the story. So as I said, it’s just going to be an improved version of the original game, and it will be available for a small fee. It’s theSleepless Night I always wanted to have and I hope the fans will like the improvements as much as I do.
I cannot really tell when Sleepless Night REMASTERED will be released. A majority of the improvements is done already, and there are just some small things missing. However, this will not affect the third and last game of the series. Sleepless Night 3: Nocte Illuni will (hopefully) be released this year, and it’ll be completely free at first!

ASA: A Space Adventure is a point-and-click adventure game by Simon Says: Watch! Play! and is presented much like the old classics like Myst. This sci-fi game captivates with beautiful HD graphics, an atmospheric soundtrack, and an compelling story; it’ll leave you craving for more.
The story: “In 2057, an astronaut finds a strange Black Cube in Space, and is teleported onto a mysterious spaceship called the Ark. You soon discover that he’s not the first astronaut from planet Terra to arrive here: Philip Forte lived through the very same experience in 2011 and, fortunately, left a diary explaining his story. With this help, you visit the Ark, with one single goal in mind: getting back home!”
The game is available here on Steam. Besides my German translation, the game is also available in English, French, Italian, and Spanish. Good luck solving the puzzles!
Forward to the Sky is a mix of action adventure and jump and run by AnimuGame. It’s certainly worthwhile for people who like the genre, with varied levels, colorful anime art, and excellent voice acting.
The story: “Once upon a time, there was a great tower in the sky. People were mining crystals with delight during the prosperous days. Until that disaster happened … Time passed, the history has been forgotten. And now, it emerged from the clouds again – the sky tower.”
Today I have two new free kinetic novels for you! Both games are Japanese legends and are relatively short. Red Ogre and Blue Ogre is something for children, but it has a certain message. Ghost Fall has some light horror elements and it’s a little bit scary. Both KNs are nice for reading in your break or something; you can play them in your browser:
As some of you may have noticed already; dUpLicity ~Beyond the Lies~ and Café 0 ~The Drowned Mermaid~ by roseVeRte are now available on Steam. Furthermore, I’m happy to announce that I’m going to translate East Tower into German as well. This game is an episodic comedy visual novel and it is about a mysterious new attraction in a theme park. That should tide us over while we are waiting for the Café 0 sequel: Café 0 ~The Sleeping Beast~. If you like you can give the games a positive rating on Steam. Me and roseVeRte would be glad if you do!
Don’t forget to check out the latest otome game by roseVeRte; How To Take Off Your Mask. It is set to be released in spring 2015 in English and Japanese and who knows … maybe there will be a German translation in the future!
It’s time! The third installment of the Raven-Saga is set to be released on January 19, 2015 and that means half-time for Abigail and Corvus. Rave Poison – Forever damned is a little bit longer than its predecessor and some of the open questions will be answered. Here is the blurb:
„Abigail Willows‘ world is shattered. Just when she thought everything would turn out well, the blazing inferno longed for her again. Death seems to follow her every step, and she starts to wonder if she can even stand a chance against destiny. Once a witch, always a witch. It is about time for another trip into the dark past to learn more about the mysterious family Winterberg. The phantom lifts his masquerade, but for which side fights this inscrutable being? Abigail realizes that she cannot save everyone and she feels forced to make an unmoral decision.“
