Similarities have been drawn to this game and Tokimemogs which is what first sparked my interest. But then I heard it was from the same people that produced Frozen Essence, one of the more widely touted english freeware otoges and I had to give it a try. The prologue wastes no time in personalizing your experience, with name, birthdate and questions designed to get a better grip on the character being created. The actual introduction to the catalyst for this title being in the supernatural category is rather sink or swim which alarmed me a bit since I was thinking it’d be a slow submersion. But no, you get literally waylaid by Vi (the baby Virus who does a great impression at being an alien lifeform) on the route to school in the first day.
The explanation for h@x was explained pretty decently but I’m still kind of reeling from the easy establishment of premise and all the freedom to choose so I might be glossing over that a bit. I like that the individual players have their own music (which incidentally, is a bit quirky and fun) and scenes that gradually trickle through instead of all at once. Also loving the help screen right on the side to explain but I’m a bit swamped from not playing otoges recently so I’m off to look for tips~!
It’s pretty amazing to see just what can be done in Ren’py and I have nothing but respect and applause for the work put into this. Go check it out and comment, un.
Just to let everyone know, the English release date for Dandelion has been announced: it will be released on Friday, December 1st, 2012! That’s not even a week away!
I know you’re all excited, so enjoy the English subtitled opening for the game in the meanwhile~

OH HELLO THERE, LOVELIES. *SMISHES AND LURKS AFTER*
Okay so wow, there’s a ton of things going on with Cheritz right now (in fact it looks like they’re doing another event, something about caek or on a more serious guess; convention related?) and having resurfaced due to the lure of actually comprehending the demo I’ve decided to set forth a little informational “guide” of sorts. It’s all kinds of rough and thrown together because these are my informal perceptions so do remember a pinch of salt is perfect to taste.
Incidentally, is anyone else just dying of curiousity over the cute little panels some of the characters are leading? Or yanno, so it seems. Interested in the articles too but they’re competing with what looks like:
- "Word of the Day" [Jieun]
- "Interesting Foods to Try/Recipes?" [Jisoo]
- "Self Defense Martial Arts Moves" [Jihae]
And something like a journalism corner…with a spotlight on fanfiction! Or one laden with spoilers in particular. Well in any case, I for one am gleefully looking forward to the day the comic strips are again provided in English. BTWs, there is quality fanart on there (and a little forum café thing). You can submit your own artistic stylings of characters on the English counterpart as well. Ah. Speaking of.
- Dandelion requires an ACTIVE Internet connection to play.
- To purchase the FULL GAME you must register an account on the Website and answer some questions (nothing terrible)
Everything looks better when you’re part of the army. Uh, I mean, look at the pretty referral box! I don’t recall anything about that asking in the original sign ups but ok! If you’ve gotten that far, huzzah and congrats! This following portion will be the important stuff with minimal rambling on my part. On to the guys and their preferences: from what I’ve tried (no guaranteed results sorry~)

Park, University, Bookstore, Art Gallery are possibly the places most forgiving/interesting to take the boys out to and which will be most likely get you a sticker (or so i think, though perhaps you also need a good answer)
It’s best to go after a specific person right at the start because the game then is more “kind” in throwing them into your way. Additionally, whoever you’re after will show up more in Sketch and Kitchen. And when I say Stats down below it’s not that getting them there won’t net you the 2nd event it’s just a note for the full game at that particular stage so don’t worry about that so much since it’s to complete notes.

——End of 19th century, England…..
Illuminating the London night streets covered in deep fog, are gas lamps and the moon breaking through the clouds.
Ladies, do be wary of the evening streets.
As crooks and mysterious cases lurking amidst the streets may target you.
A big case within the hands of the reputable English police, Scotland Yard, is still spilling onto the streets. Once involved with the case…. prepare yourself and hop in for the ride.
A mastermind detective.
A fearless thief.
Now, once the Big Ben bell echoes within the streets of London, is when the curtains rise for love and adventure…..!!——
