Just a little praise for Chertiz~
The reason why a game like Mystic Messenger has done so well is, even though it’s a 24 hour game with lots of extras, the story is engaging and you really come to feel like you know the characters in just 11 days of interactions.
And every route, you learn something about another character that you didn’t know the previous route and that sometimes can be bad and sometimes can be good.
Cheritz did little to no advertising their game outside of their own tumblr. The game is so good that word of mouth alone did the trick. So good that it brought out haters and put otome games in a spotlight.
People UNINSTALLED THIS GAME and now they are reinstalling it to play an event. That’s crazy when you think about it.
It really does come down to how well you can tell a story and develop your characters. As much as I hate to say it, I really don’t think I’ll see a game do this again. I knew when this game was released and I started playing it, that it was something special and I don’t think Cheritz nor the otome community just knew how special.
Hats off to you, @cheritzteam. I’ll follow you all until the end of time if you continue to put out solid games with good character development!
Oh and say hi to Jang Kim for me cause he’s legit the best. lol
