Let’s Play A Love Game: “Arcade Spirits,” Visual Novels and Dating Sims with Katie

Hi Smooches! Today we have a special guest, Katie, who recommended the game Arcade Spirits to us, about the visual novel and other romance-themed games. If you played The Sims just to get them to “woo-hoo!” your wallet might feel lighter after this episode. We talk console games, freemium phone games, and choose-your-own-adventure books. And Meg gives us a quiz to find a paranormal paramour.
