Portia's Book 19 - The Sun - is here!
Gorgeous art, intriguing storyline, and extremely user-friendly interface.
Only one suggestion, though; it takes seven hours for one key to return, which makes 21 hours in all to have three keys, to play three episodes. I hope this won’t be too much to ask, but could the waiting period be shortened by 2-4 hours?
Thanks for the amazing game!
Beautiful game, but exploitative microtransactions
Don’t get me wrong - the Arcana is one of the most beautiful visual novels I’ve seen in a very long time. The plot is fascinating, and the character interactions are very well done. Their pricing, however, is awful.
There are paid scenes are the devs claim are “optional”, but it gates the romantic interactions - the mainstay of any VN - behind payments of 38HKD (5USD) EACH TIME. Each chapter has at least 1 of these options, and 3 chapters make up one book. There’s currently 13 of them, and the game’s not even finished yet. You have the option to buy a whole book, but that alone costs 78HKD per book. That’s just for one character. And there’s three of them right now. There is a way to earn the currency, but you will take forever to get there. So - feel free to get it, but be prepared to be milked to an extent not even Japanese mobile VNs go up to.
Love this game but the prices...
I am so indulged in the storyline and i love it so much, but the waiting for keys, and the lack of coins... i legit spent so much money but its never enough. Please please lower the prices so we can genuinely play for fun im so upset about this
I paid for about 6000 coins, yes stupid but i love your art, only ti realise it almost couldnt even finish one storyline and i want play the other lines too and spin the wheel etc. Why is everything with coins and why are they so so expensive... its just difficult for a fresh grad to enjoy because i simply dont have the money even if i wanted to contribute. Please if you can fix this for us please
