Girl Meets Game: The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker Stays With You

Have you ever read a murder mystery and wish you could ask the suspects so many questions yourself? Or did you ever think to yourself, “You know what would make the game Clue so much better? Time travel and zombies.” If you answered yes to either of these or you just like a compelling mystery then you would absolutely be interested in newly released game The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker. Developed by D’Avekki Studios, the game is described as a “horror themed murder mystery FMV game where you play as a therapist questioning patients” but this is kind of an understatement for the actual experience.

Review: Legion of Collectors’ Women of DC Box is Packed with Girl Power

So recently I decided to try my very first subscription box and thought I would share a little review with my thoughts! When I saw that Legion of Collectors, the beautiful child of DC Comics and Funko, was doing a box for the theme Women of DC I knew despite my currently very tight budget I had to get it. Have to say now I’m glad that I did! There are few things more exciting than finding a gem of a package on your doorstep, so let’s get right to it.

First, the box itself was delightful! Upon opening, it was definitely exciting to see the design with several of my favorite fictional ladies and I will for sure be finding a way to reuse the box. Package officially unpacked, let’s get to the goodies inside.

Girl Meets Game: Lingering Glances and Country Dances in Visual Novel App ‘Regency Love’

So about two weeks or so ago I stumbled upon a little gem of an app called Regency Love. After a while of self debate, I decided to give it a go for a few reasons. First, I always love a Regency romance. I had played another game called Matches & Matrimony, inspired from the works of Jane Austen, that captured my heart but in comparison now seems a bit formulaic. Also, I figured I could use something easy to play during breaks at work and in the waiting room for appointments. Little did I know the game would end up occupying so much more of my time, because it is just that delightful. So much so, I’ve decided to make it my first review and real post here at the new blog.

captionIn Regency Love, you play the role of a young lady coming to terms with life after her father’s passing and perhaps finding marriage to secure your future. To start, you are given the chance to name your protagonist or you can go with the default offering which was Catherine Fairchild, nicknamed Kitty. Coming up with names for my characters in games has always been my biggest struggle, so in an attempt to not put off starting the story any longer I stuck with Miss Fairchild. I was immediately struck by the beautiful art – especially considering I play this on my tiny iPhone screen, and soothing music. But my favorite part of the game has to be the rich assortment characters. The charming town of Darlington hosts a number of citizens, each with their own fun personality and story. I found myself eager to talk with everyone – even poor Mr. Digby, stressed as it seemed to make him. There is your concerned but well meaning mother, your longtime best friend and confidant Miss Earlwood, the meddling and melodramatic Mrs. Norris, the town’s bickering champions Mr. Winslow and Miss Ingram, the fragile and sweet Miss Ashcroft and finally but more importantly Lord Fat Cat himself, of whom I will speak no further to not spoil his enigmatic role.
