• Girlish Grimoire Littlewitch Romanesque: Editio Perfecta

    Post your wallpaper!-littlewitch-romanesque-jpg

    An alternate world ruled by swords, magic, and monsters where four moons can be seen in the sky. The dark and chaotic twilight of the “Age of Tower” ended for this world called Stellamund and it entered the prosperous “Age of Crown”. But the wizards who triggered the great war during the Age of Tower no longer hold the power they used to have, and quietly researched the great magics that were lost, in a magical academy called Grimoire.

    This is a story expanding three years of an extraordinary great wizard who was born in such age, the girls who become his pupils, a ruin from the old age, “Black Tower” that they live in, and the people that gather around them.

    The main character Domino became the 9th great wizard of the Grimoire Academy. It was a very special case for a young wizard to be so successful, but Domino soon grew tired of the Grimoire. The other great wizards were only seeing magic as means for personal success than an important research. The research of magic has been put off and all they were doing was fighting over authority.

    Domino left the capital and decided to live by himself in the sealed Black Tower on the frontier, rumored that a great wizard in the Age of Tower lived. But the other great wizards didn’t think well of that and gave him a test.

    That test was to “Raise a full fledged wizard within three years”. Normally it would take decades to raise a proper wizard. On top of that, the two students that he was suppose to look after, Aria Vancliff and Kaya Xavier, were two of the most troublesome girls in the academy. Will Domino be able to complete this difficult task...?

      There's a mouthful of a title for you. Is that even English (or Japanese, as the case may be)?

      I dare somebody to say it three times fast.

      That's the official English title that JAST chose.
      Japanese title was "少女魔法学 リトルウィッチロマネスク editio perfecta" and means roughly the same ( they use "magic school" instead of "spellbook" ).

      "grimoire" comes from old French and roughly translates to "spellbook".
      "editio perfecta" is direct Latin translation for "complete edition"

      A lot of magic-themed works use language like that to sound "edgy", mysterious and pick up the interest. Just take a look at Umineko anime OP with it's pseudo-Latin chorus, or even title of "Puella Magi Madoka Magica" series - they could've just use "Mahou Shoujo Madoka" title ( "Puella Magi" means "magical girl/virgin" in Latin) and it'd mean the same, but they wanted to "stand out".

      Steam greenlight version of this game (not the one that I posted here), without h-scenes will be named "Editio Acturi" ( Latin again, translates directly to "edition for everyone", or more natural "all-ages version".

      Surprisingly good. Dice + adorable/funny characters + quests. Just finished my first playthrough. Definitely going to need to actually strategize second time around. Also, star shaped missions indicate endings I think, so better save before doing those if you want to get the afterward from the final test.

      Pretty fantastic so far. Just wish the art style wasn't so.... flowery? I don't really know how to explain it. Hopefully it starts to grow on me as i play
