Period Cube • Trailer • PS Vita
Outstanding production values, smooth technical features and entertaining romantic entanglements go a long way towards making this Otomate title a pleasure to play; but the lack of overriding originality, and falling back on some of the stock filler props of the VN genre, hold it back from being a truly innovative iteration in the crowded field of stories of players imprisoned in a virtual world. Not every game needs to be innovative, however, to provide thoughtful entertainment, and Period: Cube most certainly provided me with that in good measure.
Period: Cube ~Shackles of Amadeus~ is a lovely Otome visual novel that fans of the genre will certainly enjoy on PS Vita. The MMO twist for the story is played out nicely in the story without it ever getting in the way of player's enjoyment of the overall story arc and the romance potential. There's a ton of things to do in the game and plenty of characters to interact with, especially if you aim at seeing all cutscenes so that you can get a new Platinum tropyhy for your collection!
Period: Cube ~Shackles of Amadeus~ is a great Otome visual novel on PlayStation Vita with a solid story, great graphics and a ton of content to experience. If you're a fan of the genre, then you're going to love this entry. But even if you're not a fan, this PS Vita release is the perfect entry point into Otome so that you can see what all the fuss is about.
