「 Black and white. This is the story of two girls who wandered into two worlds —– 」
わーい another game announcement from Otomate, this time in collobaration with KOGADO!! This is KOGADO’s first work under their new label, Girls Project.
Alice of Black and White (白と黒のアリス・Shiro to Kuro no Arisu) is slated for a 2017 release for the PS Vita. Art is by Mochimochita and KOGADO Studio, and it also seems that there will be a manga adaptation by Fujimaru Mamenosuke (who apparently also worked on the manga of quinrose’s alice…..??? lol). Scenario writers are Uozumi Yukiko (Meiji Tokyo Renka) and Kouzuki Hajime (multiple drama CDs).
Route: White ✦
The sky, covered in clouds — the World of White.
On a rainy day, the heroine Airi, a high school second year student who lives a peaceful life, meets a certain young on her way home.
The young man, drenched in the rain without an umbrella, tells Airi that he’s ‘come to meet her.’ In fear and confusion, Airi runs from him, but ends up getting caught.
Suddenly, she’s finds herself in a place she has no recollection of.
The same young man introduces himself as ‘the Black Rabbit, Rain’ and tells her this:
‘Alice, you will now become the queen of this world——’
Route: Black ✦
A blue sky with no edges — the World of Black.
A sudden coup d’état takes place in the land that the second heroine, Luna, rules as the queen.
The Queen’s advisors — the Black Rabbit, Rain, and the White Rabbit, Snow — who saw this as a serious threat, executed a plan which involved Luna taking refuge in the World of White while a candidate for the new queen would be brought back to the World of Black.
And so, Luna was brought to the World of White, and Airi to the World of Black.
The two girls who swap places; the secret behind their two worlds is……?
✦ Heroine of the White Route

‘There’s no use in resisting. Become the Queen, and live here for the rest of your life.’

‘Don’t worry. No one will really notice the small issues, after all.’
One of the Queen’s advisors, and the older twin. He is friendly to all and has a soothing personality. Though he always has a warm smile on his face, when it comes to his job, he can sometimes forcefully make things go his way. (i s2g he’s the type that looks ~gentle and kind~ but actually has some traumatic past and is 600% messed up inside)

welp here’s another game I don’t know what to think about…….ヽ(´o｀；
I mean we all know the alice in wonderland theme’s been done too many times already wwww haha maybe it’s just me but I’m not really into adaptations of alice in wonderland; the story’s just so bizarre (ngl i was kinda scared of it as a kid) I think I’d find it hard to seriously enjoy a game set in it’s world/////////
it’s nice that there’s 2 heroines though!!!!!! (though none of the guys really stand out much to me orz) luna seems like she’ll be an interesting character??(´∀｀=) aah but one problem I have with multiple heroines is that usually they end up with very stereotypical personalities/one-dimensional ww I guess it’s because they have to emphasise that they’re different from each other????? idk maybe that’s just the impression I’ve gotten from games with multiple heroines before w like if she’s tsundere she’s gotta be tsundere all the way or else she’ll seem too much like the other heroine!!!!! aaaaa I dunno///// idk why but a part of me is also under the impression that 2 heroines means the story won’t really matter because in the first place there can’t be that much of a story if they can split it between 2 different heroines…..coughs norn9 AAAAAA idk my thoughts are going all over the place I’m actually sick right now so maybe that’s why ww sorry!!!! ><
SO YEAH can't really say I'm interested (thank god bc im running out of money to throw at otomate after 7scarlet cxm and psychedelica wwwwww) but I'll keep up with info just in case things cast list えへへへへ(´◉◞౪◟◉) do get more interesting!!!!!!!
