The Vi Boys Play (P)lanets, Otome Visual Novel (Part 1)

The Vi Boys play (P)lanets - the life of normalcy has ended! An English otome game and free dating sim.

Hello, everyone!  It’s time for another fourth-wall breaking Let’s Play.  We’ll be going with one of the suggestions given by Arkhane.  I was hoping to play one of the others on the list, but since it wasn’t working, I’m jumping into (P)lanets – the life of normalcy has ended!

It’s a free visual novel game classed as school-life comedy and mild sci-fi.  It’s also an otome, which means one of the goals of the game is to help the main character get with a boy.  Let’s begin!

Barium: Hello, everyone!  You know who else should be here?  My brother.  He’s a member of the Vi, too.  A pretty important one, I’d say.

Night: Well then, invite him.

Barium: I did, but he says he’s too busy for something like this.  If you ask me, he just doesn’t want to play a game meant for girls.

Night: But apparently, we do.

Barium: Well, the heroine’s cute.

Barium: See?  Who wouldn’t want to help a girl like this?

Night: She does have nice hair.  It kind of looks like she just rolled out of bed.

Onyx: She was asleep in class.  Her name is Kazuoki Marin, a second-year high schooler.

Barium: Yes, go on and narrate for us, Onyx.  No, I’m only kidding.

Barium: All right.  The teacher’s mad at her for sleeping in class.

Night of the Vi, from English otome game and visual novel.

Night: Bad student.

King Barium of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), dark fantasy visual novel and free otome game.

Barium: Hmm…I wonder if she’s a bad teacher.  I like the glimpses of sexiness she has in her outfit…

Barium: She’s all right.  She wakes up in the infirmary…where she seems to be hearing their thoughts?  Oh, the plot thickens.

Night: And these two are her parents.

Barium: Hmm…you know, the dad looks like someone who would make a good drinking partner.

Night: What makes you say that?

King Barium of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), dark fantasy visual novel and free otome game.

Barium: There’s just something about the way he carries himself.  He looks like someone who knew how to have fun in his younger days.

Barium: I stand corrected.  He shouldn’t be calling his daughter or his wife a klutz.

Night of the Vi, from English otome game and visual novel.

Night: Maybe he means it lovingly.  Kazuoki did look cute tripping down the stairs.

Barium: You can’t see it, reader, but I’m shaking my head at him.

Night of the Vi, from English otome game and visual novel.

Night: I don’t think we’re supposed to address the reader.

King Barium of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), dark fantasy visual novel and free otome game.

Barium: Why not?  It’d be rude for a host to ignore their guests, wouldn’t it?  Hahaha!

Barium: Oh, we don’t get to see how the nurse looks?  Too bad.

Night of the Vi, from English otome game and visual novel.

Night: Even if she’s thinking something rather nasty?

King Barium of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), dark fantasy visual novel and free otome game.

Barium: She’s just tired and overworked.  You know, I imagine she looks something like the teacher we saw earlier.

Night of the Vi, from English otome game and visual novel.

Night: I’m thinking of Nurse Joy.

King Barium of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), dark fantasy visual novel and free otome game.

Barium: Who’s Nurse Joy?

Night: Oh, it seems like someone made it to second base last night.

King Barium of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), dark fantasy visual novel and free otome game.

Barium: Only second base?  That’s nothing.

Barium: Someone’s standing in front of her house.  Maybe he has a crush on her?

Night of the Vi, from English otome game and visual novel.

Night: She seems worried he’ll mug her.

King Barium of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), dark fantasy visual novel and free otome game.

Barium: Really?  He doesn’t really look like a thief.  Then again, you never know.

Onyx: Kazuoki Marin is unable to read his thoughts.  The boy informs her that she is a psychic and he comes from Planets, a school for psychics.

Night: Interesting.

Barium: And this is the principal of Planets.  He has those strange things on his face again.  Kind of like Zhou Wu, remember?

Night of the Vi, from English otome game and visual novel.

Night: I wasn’t there, but you told me about him.  He said he needed them.

King Barium of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), dark fantasy visual novel and free otome game.

Barium: Yes, but I’m not sure why.  It still seems like some sort of fashion statement.

Night of the Vi, from English otome game and visual novel.

Night: Would you wear one?

King Barium of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), dark fantasy visual novel and free otome game.

Barium: If a pretty woman asked me.

Barium: Kaius has to show Kazuoki around the school, and he’s walking too fast for the poor lady.  Oh, we get to make a choice!  Do you want to stop here?

Night of the Vi, from English otome game and visual novel.

Night: Because it’s such a dramatic cliffhanger.

King Barium of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), dark fantasy visual novel and free otome game.

Barium: Haha, yes.  But if you want us to make a particular choice, reader, let us know.  We’ll be happy to oblige.

Night of the Vi, from English otome game and visual novel.

Night: Kind of defeats the purpose of a Let’s Play, doesn’t it?

King Barium of the Vi from War (X Playing Pieces), dark fantasy visual novel and free otome game.

Barium: Not really.  We’re still playing the game.

What did you think of the Vi boys’ commentary?  I say this all the time, but let me know on tumblr or send me an e-mail at [askdreamgazer@gmail.com].  You know I love hearing from y’all!
