Pottermore keeps Harry Potter relevant

I joined the Harry Potter-centric website Pottermore way back when it first started in 2012. At the time, the book series was long since finished, and the movies were coming to an end.

The Royal Trap prioritizes intrigue over romance

If a game has dating sim elements, that doesn’t mean it only has to be about abruptly stumbling into true love. Sometimes, the more realistic visual novels are more interesting.

The Spatials’ exploration is full of clickbait

The Spatials is an adorable simulation with role-playing elements that I’ve had the privilege of playing recently.
