Remember Air Pressure? It was that visual novel by bentosmile that, depending which comments section you asked, was about substance abuse, self-mutilation, or anti-depressants. Air Pressure landed a close third in Free Indie Rapid Fire back in March with about 25% of the vote, so it seems like a quite few of you really liked it. Maybe even enough to play another!
Enter The Life Of A Pacifist Is Often Fraught With Conflict, a game about game development (if games were developed by anthropomorphic animals). Like Air Pressure, there’s a branching path and multiple endings, and you’ll have to play through it multiple times if you want a chance at better understanding the developer’s intent. Pretty interesting stuff.
If that’s not enough to satisfy your desire for hot sexy visual novel action, there’s another neat untitled game by bento smile that uses actual photographs of a plush cat around a house as the artwork (to satisfy the bricolage theme of the competition it was created for). Once again, if you dug Air Pressure, you’ll probably find a lot to like in both of these.
