Ever played Otome games?

I've played Starry Sky, but it sucked terribly.

The Visual Novel Database is a useful tool for finding interactive stories and romance games. For instance, here is its list of otome games (AKA reverse harem, or girl x boys) that are currently available in English: http://vndb.org/v/all?q=;fil=tagspoil-0.tag_inc-542.lang-en;o=a;s=title . The site only includes a few games that emphasize complex gameplay, so only one of Pacthesis' Flash games is mentioned, none of Nummyz' games are listed, and some of the more abstract iOS/Android games aren't on the site.

If you didn't like the story aspects of Starry Sky in Spring, then be sure to say so -- there are a few alternatives. If you wanted a game centered around gameplay, then be sure to say so -- there are a few options available.

One relatively recent otome game that I liked was RE:Alistair. It's quite easy to recommend, since it's A) freeware, available in English for all computers, C) a mix of story and simulation gameplay, and D) like just about every other reverse harem story currently in English, it's worksafe. Find it at http://www.sakevisual.com/realistair .

Yes. The one thing I hate is that there isn't a lot in English ):
There's only some fan-made ones & only like, 5 of them are decent.
