Hello all! It’s been such a long time since I’ve written a game review, but I’ll stick as close as possible to my original review style.
Here’s reviewing an otome game after so long… and it’s a complete disappointment, saved only by its efforts into sprite animations and beautiful GUI.
First up, what is Period:Cube about? (non-spoiler)
To put it simply, it’s a lousy ripoff of Sword Art Online, otome style, complete with the part about dying in real life should you die in the game. The heroine finds her brother missing for an extended period and investigates with her childhood friend Hiroya. But all of a sudden, they are sucked into the game Arcadia which has a server known as ‘World V’ that has rumours of keeping people trapped in the game. Exactly ripping off SAO, the people trapped in World V are told to clear a dungeon in order to fully return to their lives in the real world. To do so, they have to collect and wield / clear the dungeon with 3 swords: a Holy sword, a Demon sword and Amadeus, God’s sword (the heroine). Therefore, the heroine (or you) becomes the target object of the game.
