Welcome to Otome, visual dating games made with women in mind.

The purpose of this site is to introduce people to the world of girl-oriented anime gaming, where you play a female character and pursue one of several available beautiful boys for a romantic relationship. You might be running a country or saving the world at the same time!

Princesses, ninjas, wizards, ballerinas, sports stars - otome heroines can be anything.

This can be off-putting to some friends, so I usually warn them ahead -- you can always first check out the game’s demo to see if it’s right for you.

Haru can be pretty pushy and consent can seem hazy at times, but all the relationship routes in the game play out in a compelling manner and Haru's prodding of boundaries leads to intriguing character insights. is not just a constant sex romp -- it's got a pretty extensive private detective and mafia story leading the actors along, and not always to the happiest conclusions.

“Generally, eroge for men are drawn in POV style, and you do what you can to keep the man’s face out of the shot, but BL is the complete opposite.” “Most of my research was focused on figuring out how far I could push a more explicit approach to sex and still appeal to other women,” she adds.

“I consulted with other women about whether I could get away with a more masculine approach instead of a sparkly-clean, romanticized one.” If No, Thank You!!!

Generally you meet several characters, and will have to choose one to court.

isn’t your style, then consider Coming Out On Top, an 18 gay dating sim made in Ren’Py.

While it was initially influenced by Japanese BL games, it covers more Western sensibilities. is currently available on PC only from Manga Gamer directly (though I’m told it can work on Mac via a Windows virtual machine). Korean company Cheritz has been releasing their Japanese-style dating sim games into English for a couple of years now, and recently got those games onto Steam through Greenlight.

Compared to similar games on the app stores, this one has extremely good localization and copy-editing.

Sloppy localization can often let dating sim fans down.
