NaNoRenO 2016 Let’s Plays: Sweet and Spices

X Playing Pieces Play Sweet and Spices, NaNoRenO 2016 game and free English visual novel.

NaNoRenO is the month of grueling labor, blood, and passion.  Participants are tasked with the daunting challenge of completing a game within the confines of March.  In short, it’s a game jam that lasts from March 1 – March 31.

In honor of all that hard work and effort, the boys are going to play one of those NaNoRenO games.  We’re starting with Pastelle Studios’s Sweet and Spices.  Let’s go!

Barium: Well, this will give us more time to figure out which classroom Kazuoki should be in…

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: What are you talking about?

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

Barium: The Let’s Play I was doing last time with Night and Onyx.  You could join us.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: I don’t even want to do this one.

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

Barium: Well, I would prefer to play through this with my brother.  His reactions would be priceless.  But when life gives you lemons…

Sweets and Spices, NaNoRenO visual novel game.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Shut up.  We’re starting…Sweet and Spices.

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

Barium: That’s right.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: You’re serious?  Why in the world did you pick this one?

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

Barium: What’s wrong with this one?

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Ambrosia and Wildfire should play this one.

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

Barium: Now, now, watch and see.  Anyway, it’s asking for a name.  I’ll put in mines since I wasn’t able to join all of you for Ready, Set Parody!

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: It’s nothing to be jealous about.

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

Barium: And now, it’s asking me what my manager’s name is.  Do you think that person’s a male or a female?

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Don’t know.  Don’t care.

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

Barium: I’ll go with ‘Cupcake’ since it’s imprinted on the text box.  And the opening video.  And the logo.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: If it’s a guy, that’ll be real weird.

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

Barium: It’s all right.  His parents were great lovers of desserts and sweets of all kind, and so, they chose a name imbued with their love.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: See?  This is why you earn your name on Virgo Island.  It makes no sense to give someone a name that doesn’t suit them.

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

Barium: You never know.  He could be as sweet as a cupcake.  Or maybe, just maybe, it’s a woman.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: You better hope so.  Now, hurry up already.

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

Barium: All right, all right.

Barium: Aww, that sounds bittersweet.  I have a feeling there’s a heartwarming romance down the road.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Move. Faster.

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

Barium: Next time, remind me not to do a Let’s Play with you.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: If I had my way, we’d never have started this one.

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

Barium: Yes, I haven’t forgotten what you said less than five minutes ago.

Screen of Mina from Sweets and Spices, free English visual novel game.

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

Barium: Okay, we’re working at the cafe called Sweet and Spices.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Big surprise.

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

Barium: And what do you know?  Cupcake’s a woman. A lovely one at that.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Ugh.

Screen of Mina from Sweets and Spices, free dating sim and English visual novel game.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: She’s putting you to work and asking for your nickname.  You’re the King of the Freaks.

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

Barium: No, my nickname is Handsome.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: No one calls you that.

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

Barium: Guess again.

Mina CG from Sweets and Spices, English visual novel and free dating sim.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Sure.  Lie to the woman.

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

Barium: I know you don’t like me, but give me the benefit of the doubt, all right?

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: She half-jokes that she’ll use your nickname to tease you.  How can she tease you with that?

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

Barium: One day, when you’ve been with a woman, you’ll understand.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Who says I haven’t been with a woman?

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

Barium: Well, have you?

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: …Go work at the cashier.

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

Barium: Heh.  Cupcake’s calling for me, I suppose.  But she stays behind at night.  Why is that?

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

Barium: I’m definitely asking.  But it’s a secret!  Oh, such a shame.  She does the same thing that night.  The next morning…

Wind: I honestly don’t want to work here anymore.

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

Barium: We’re not telling her that.  I’ll help you, Cupcake.

Screen of Mina from Sweets and Spices, NaNoRenO game and free dating sim.

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

Barium: Aww, thank you, Cupcake.  But you didn’t have to do that.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: It’s like I’m not even here.  Why wouldn’t you have those things for free anyway?  You’re working there.

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

Barium: Shh.  You’re killing the mood.  Also, I think that’s just how their country works.

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

Barium: Well, I’m definitely seeing what she’s been up to these past few evenings.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: There’s no stopping you.

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

Barium: By the way, if any of our readers are planning on playing this game, you should be forewarned.  This next part’s a spoiler.

Barium: So, as it turns out, Cupcake has been cutting cookies in half in dedication of an old friend.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: You know I can read, right?

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

Barium: You can?

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: You –

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

Barium: Ahaha!  Actually, I’m just making sure no one’s lost as they’re reading along.  There are only so many pictures, you know?  Unless you want me to capture every scene and put it here.  But that would be ruining it for anyone who wants to pick it up.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Right.

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

Barium: Anyway, Cupcake’s old friend left town because of his parents’ business, but he promised to come back and marry her.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: That sounds like the kind of promise you make in your childhood.

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

Barium: And?  It doesn’t make it any less valid, Wind.  Haven’t you ever made a childhood promise?

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind:

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

Barium: At least, I assume you were young once.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Stop talking.

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

Barium: Unless no one wanted to be your friend.  That would be sad.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Seriously, enough already or I’ll give you something to really be sad about.

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

Barium: Is it impossible for you to talk to someone without throwing around threats?

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Fine.  Next time, I won’t give you a warning.

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

Barium: Gee…

Barium: Oh-ho!  It seems like Cupcake’s story is stirring my memories.  What she’s describing is exactly what happened to me.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: I think I can see where this is headed.

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

Barium: Well, the next day, I find the front doors of Sweet and Spices locked, and Cupcake gives me a call.

Barium: I like surprises.  I wouldn’t mind meeting you on the hill at all.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Are you sure it’s the hill?  Cupcake’s voice said “beach.”

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

Barium: Hush.  You’re being rude.  As always.  Don’t let him bother you, Cupcake.

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

Barium: Oh…she looks beautiful.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Why is she wearing a cookie in her hair?

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

Barium: It’s just an ornament on her headband.  You know, she’s been wearing it all this time.  It’s interesting that it took you this long to mention it.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: I didn’t really notice it over you making silly goo-goo eyes at her.

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

Barium: Well, don’t cry, Sweet.  You know that I will love you with all of my heart forever.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: You’re changing the line.

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

Barium: I’m just adding my own style to it.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Are we done yet?

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

Barium: Almost.  Two years later, I married her.  I promised to love her forever and never break her heart.  And that’s the “True End.”

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Good.

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

Barium: I wonder what would happen if I went back to the start and said my nickname was Spices…

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: No.

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

Barium: Yes.

Barium: Oh, wait.  It’s asking if we want to talk to the developer.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: No.

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

Barium: Yes, we are!

Barium: Hello, MimirollCookie!

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: More cookies.

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

Barium: Cookies are good.

Barium: Let’s take a look at them all.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Do it later.  By yourself.  Nobody wants to see you go through all of that.

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

Barium: Aren’t you a downer?  Fine.  But I still want to see what happens if I put in “Spices” as my nickname.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Ugh.

Mina CG of Sweet & Spices, NaNoRenO 2016 visual novel and free dating sim.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: And nothing happens.

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

Barium: No, it actually makes the story more complete.  When she says that her old friend used to be called “Spices” and that happens to be your nickname…well, all the pieces fall into place.  It now makes sense why she asks for your nickname.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: And if you picked a different one?  Why’d your nickname change from Spices to whatever it was you chose?

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

Barium: Some people outgrow their nicknames.  But I like to think it was her private nickname for you.  No one else was allowed to call you that but her.  And no one else was allowed to call her Sweet but you.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Okay.  Now we’re done.

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

Barium: You know what your nickname should be?  Bitter.  You need some Sweet in your life – but not Cupcake.  She’s mines.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: You can have her.

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

Barium: Hehehe…thanks for joining us, readers.  Hope you had almost as much fun as we did.  You can let Dreamgazer know what you thought on that tumblr thing or that tweeting thing.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: That’s a whole lot of things.

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

Barium: I’m not really familiar with them, so I’m just calling them that.  Oh, but you can also just leave a comment.  Have a good rest of the week!  See you next time.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Hopefully, I won’t.

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

Barium: You’re really earning your nickname, Bitter.

Wind from War, English visual novel and otome.

Wind: Whatever.

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

Barium: Oh, and before we go…
