Who it Caters to
What to Expect
Kitty Love - Way to Look for Love - PV
Storywise, Kitty Love - Way to Look for Love - is a bit unusual, although nothing too outlandish for an otome game. The story revolves around a girl trying to figure out what to do when she is cursed to become a cat at night. At the start, you are introduced to all of the lovely bachelors in the game, and after being cursed, you are given the option of picking which man you want to go after. This seems to be the new thing when playing otome games, which is nice as you don’t fall into many branching storylines. Once you select your route, you read a lot of text and see how the characters slowly fall into love.
Unlike with Iris School of Wizardry -Vinculum Hearts-, Kitty Love - Way to Look for Love - has longer stories told in about 10 chapters. This means that, unlike the previous game, the stories are better developed so that it doesn’t feel rushed. The story itself is rather simple compared to Iris School of Wizardry, but that doesn’t take away from its enjoyment. Kitty Love - Way to Look for Love - is still rather cute and has plenty of romantic moments depending on which route you go on. Even just based on the artwork, you can tell it’s a bit on the fluffy side, but that makes it enjoyable. It may not have wonderful storytelling like Iris School of Wizardry, but Kitty Love - Way to Look for Love - holds its own as an otome game.
Graphic wise, it feels like DIGIMERCE took a step back. Like we said, it looks graphically fluffy with pastel colors that make it feel very light hearted. The backgrounds are nothing special if not toned down to focus efforts elsewhere in the game. It’s a bit disappointing compared to past games, but again, it doesn’t detract from Kitty Love - Way to Look for Love - as a whole. However, we have to say, we wished there were character designs for other characters that are introduced and even voiced! It’s hard to stay immersed in a story with characters you can’t see and can only hear, especially when their contenances are described in the game.
Honey's Gameplay Consensus:
- Cute story and easy gameplay
- More chapters than previous games so that the characters and romances have more time to develop
- Bad grammar
- Simple/Low quality backgrounds
- Slow framerate makes the game feel laggy at times
- Wish more characters were actually drawn in the game
