Critic Reviews for Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly

Most otome visual novels are a dime a dozen, and they're usually a guilty pleasure. Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly stands above the rest with its unpredictable, deep mystery and its pathways to the various endings. If you're looking for an atypical otome, especially one where the romantic endings aren't always the happiest, then you owe it to yourself curl up into your couch with this one.

Overall, Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly is a gripping Otome visual novel that, while still having that romance vibe that Otome releases dig into, places a nice focus on the mystery at hand. You'll spend a nice chunk of time working on unlocking all possible paths and endings in this one, which greatly increases its replay value as you interact with different characters in new ways.

If you want an otome game that isn't quite as dense as Otomate's usual fare, you can't go wrong with Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly. Between the mysterious thriller at the game's heart and the romantic side stories, this is a game that kept me turning page after figurative page.

Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly is a otome game with an unusual story, very deep and intriging. I recommend this game to all the people who love thriller stories and a good composition in scenaries and characters.
