Otome: What it is?
An otome game, sometimes contracted to otoge, is a story-based video game that is targeted towards women. Generally one of the goals is to develop a romantic relationship between the female player character and one of several male characters. This genre is most established in Japan, and is mostly made up of visual novels and simulation games. Particularly dating sims and life simulation games.
Traditionally, the goal of these games is to have the desired partner fall in love and have a relationship with the player character, but the requirements for gaining a “good end” differ from game to game. While the plots of otome games differ greatly, there is usually a single female main character, and several good-looking males of varying “types”.
Gameplay occasionally does not particularly focus on romance, even if there are several characters whose “routes” you can follow.
