And now for something completely expected. A new Greenlight voting queue.

It’s that time again for a new review of Greenlight games posted. This time for games that have been posted between September 28 to 30, 2015. A couple of things and rules to go over:

This list is in no real order. This post is created entirely from my opinion, as such game worth mention may not get included. I try not to let that happen.

Rules –

  • Games must have a trailer.
  • Games must have an English Translation.
  • Games that have been reposted to Greenlight and I’ve previously talked about, will not be included.
  • Games should look ready for Greenligth and should not look like joke submissions.

Now for the part you already skipped to, the Games:

Title: Libra of the Vampire Princess

Genre: Visual Novel

Art Style: 2D Hand Drawn

Synopsis: Syuma Kusanagi had an ordinary life until he was abducted by a girl named Iris. She tells him he has vampire blood in him and that she is there to make it awaken. Syuma makes a run for it, managing to escape because of a ring his mother gave him but now feels the need for blood. This game is coming in October to Japan and the game will be running a Kickstarter for an English translation.

Opinion: The trailer is very glamorous but never sold me on the game.
