Rance: Introduction and History - Typically, when we talk about gaming franchises that have been around since the early days of the medium, the same names tend to come up all the time. There’s Final Fantasy, of course, which first appeared in 1987. Super Mario Bros., which hails from 1985. The Legend of Zelda from 1986. All classic series that are still going strong and … Continue reading Rance: Introduction and History
Rance: The “Discworld” of Eroge - One of the most remarkable things about Alicesoft’s Rance series is quite how detailed its lore is. This might not be something you expect to hear about a series of 18+ games with rather a lot of sexually explicit content, but just a few minutes with a Rance title will make it abundantly clear Alicesoft takes this … Continue reading Rance: The “Discworld” of Eroge
Rance 5D: Roulette, Role-Playing and RNG - 2002’s Rance 5D (finally localised into English in 2017) is probably one of the most unusual RPGs you will ever play. At least part of its rather distinctive nature is due to the fact that it is actually developer Alicesoft’s fourth attempt at a fifth Rance game, hence the “D” on the end of the … Continue reading Rance 5D: Roulette, Role-Playing and RNG
Rance VI: An Epic for Adults - Whew. Sorry for the somewhat delayed appearance of this article, but as you will know if you’re a regular reader, I like to beat at the very least the main story of games before I write about them in detail. Rance VI’s main story is a substantial, ambitious affair — and there’s a whole bunch of … Continue reading Rance VI: An Epic for Adults

Altering Content and Self-Censorship Pleases No-One - Yesterday, DRM-free digital distribution platform GOG.com posted a lengthy interview with localisation producer Tom Lipschultz and team leader Ken Berry from XSEED Games, whose most recent localisation project Zwei has recently been released on GOG’s storefront. Lipschultz in particular has been known up until the time of writing as someone who claims to hold a … Continue reading Altering Content and Self-Censorship Pleases No-One
The MoeGamer Awards: The “I Shouldn’t Have Hesitated” Award - The MoeGamer Awards are a series of made-up prizes that give me an excuse to celebrate games, concepts and communities I’ve particularly appreciated over the course of 2017. Find out more and suggest some categories here! There are certain games and series whose reputation precedes them. Of course, there are those series that are legendarily excellent … Continue reading The MoeGamer Awards: The “I Shouldn’t Have Hesitated” Award
Waifu Wednesday: Rizna Lanfbitt - Rance 5D’s main heroine Rizna Lanfbitt is a great character — and pleasingly, she gets plenty of time in the spotlight in the subsequent games, too. Initially presented pretty much as a textbook example of a “damsel in distress” — right down to being trapped inside a castle, fairy tale-style — Rizna shows herself over … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Rizna Lanfbitt
Waifu Wednesday: Athena 2.0 - A real highlight of Rance 5D is the amount of time you get to spend with Athena 2.0. Utterly devoted to her master, but in a completely different way to the genuine feelings Sill holds for Rance, this rather peculiar artificial lifeform is a reliable source of comedy, cuteness and, more often than not, erotic … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Athena 2.0
Waifu Wednesday: Shizuka Masou - This week’s waifu is once again drawn from the extensive cast of the Rance series, and is a character who has been part of the brutish hero’s saga almost since the very beginning. First appearing as an antagonist in Rance II: The Rebellious Maidens, Shizuka has been a fixture in the series alongside her best friend … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Shizuka Masou
Waifu Wednesday: Sill Plain - Now our exploration of the Rance series is well underway, it’s only fitting we celebrate some of its excellent female characters. And where better to start than the protagonist’s perpetual companion (and slave) Sill Plain? Sill has been a fixture in the series from its inception through to its current status, acting as Rance’s long-suffering … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Sill Plain
