We've been having a lot of fun streaming Fate/EXTELLA over on our Twitch channel. It's silly, funny, and extremely gay, in the "girls doing it with other girls" sense. But it's also very dramatic, and on our first playthrough it made us cry so hard. For all these reasons, it is our favourite game ever.
But not everyone likes tears and shock. Frankly, not everyone can take it, especially with everything that's going on right now.
With that in mind, starting this Saturday evening at 10 PM Eastern we're going to stream a much fluffier and more soothing game: Atelier Ayesha Plus, the improved version of the first game in the Dusk trilogy.
The Dusk trilogy is about a world slowly dying to magically-induced climate change. It deals with some serious issues. But it's relentlessly optimistic about it, and shows its characters coming together to help with each other's individual problems before addressing the world's situation head-on. Alchemy, or item crafting, is much more important than RPG-style combat in solving problems, and comprises most of the gameplay.
This first instalment concerns one Ayesha Altugle, an herbalist and alchemist from a land far removed from the worst of the Dusk crisis. She's trying to find her sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. Also, there will be flowers.
Lots of flowers.
Please subscribe to our channel on Twitch and turn on notifications, if you'd like to be reminded when we go live! We'll be alternating this game with Fate/EXTELLA if all goes well, and will update our Twitch announcements with the date ant time of upcoming streams.
Also: Is it just me, or is Ayesha like one knitted shawl removed from a pitch-perfect mori girl ensemble?
