Originally released in Japan in 2017, Kinkoi: Golden Loveriche was a huge hit, picking up a lot of critical acclaim along the way. It may have taken a few years, but the game has finally been localized and is making its way to Steam. Now, the version I am talking mainly about today is the demo which as I write this is completely free on Steam and gives you around five hours of story to get into. I got so invested that I had no trouble putting my money down to get the full version.
A Case Of Mistaken Identity
If you are expecting Kinkoi: Golden Loveriche to be a sex-filled lust adventure style visual novel you have come to the wrong place. What we have here is more of a slice of life kind of story and it is one that I really enjoyed. Our main character is a guy called, Ouro. Ouro is going about his business when he sees this super cute lady running for her life so he intervenes.
This lady is a very wealthy Princess who is running from her guards! This is a bit of a scandal (for some reason) so it is decided that Ouro must join Princess Sylvie at an all-girls prestigious school called Noble Academy… yeah. The story is pretty weird and the way they get our main character, Ouro into this school is a real stretch, but once you are at the school the story really begins.
Beauty And The Cutie
What will grab most people’s attention with Kinkoi: Golden Loveriche is the art style. This game is pure eye candy and one of the best-looking visual novel games I have seen so far this year (well 2017, but you know what I mean) there are a bunch of main girls in the game as well as Sylvie in Elle and Ria and each girl has her own style which is cool. The artwork here is just top of the line all the way and I love how the girls are cute and sexy, but there is also this chibi element to the game as well.
The Singing Of The Angels!
I love the music in the game, it fits the rather amusing and weird story that is going on perfectly. Also, I was very impressed that each of the characters (not Ouro) has full Japanese voice acting, granted my Japanese is not very good, but their voices do fit their characters very well. It would have been great if they could have gotten some English voice acting in Kinkoi: Golden Loveriche actually.
Always Look On The Bright Slice Of Life
This is a visual novel game so that means most of what you are going to be doing is reading the story, making a choice here and there, and moving the plot along. This is classed as a romance game, but for me, it was more about making relationships with people rather than just having sex with them. I can see this not clicking with some people as they may say that it makes the events of the game kind of pointless, but I liked it.
I think if you enjoy visual novel games, Kinkoi: Golden Loveriche is something that you will really enjoy. I loved the story that it told, it has the perfect balance of humor if you ask me and it is sure to make you smile.
The way that the story is told also makes it very easy to get connected to some of the characters. It looks amazing too and the visuals truly do make you want to keep on playing. As I said, there is a free demo that lets you play quite a bit of the game, so you have nothing to lose by checking that out.
- The main character is good to play as
- Each girl has her own style and personality
- I liked the direction they took the story in
- The demo lets you play quite a lot of the game
- I do wish it had English voice acting
- It is not all that XXX
