All that said and done, though, when it comes to games that a player of Academagia may like, there is one game I must recommend. Similar Victorian delight (if a bit less with the steampunk), similar brilliant characters, similar hard decisions... the only sad part is that it requires either twitter or facebook. If you do have them, though, I must implore you to take a visit to Fallen London, delicious friends.

 

You'll stay at the bazaar will be lovely, I'm certain. ❤️

Fallen London might be a interesting game but effective the Action Point system that only slowly refresh your action over time make this game uninteresting to play in the long run. It might be a good game if you play it during short train trips where the action point have time to refresh till the next trip but when the 20 or 40 Action point you maximum can have are used up you either have to pay money or wait 10 Minute to continue. At last for me there more enough other games waiting that I play them that I'm not willing to pay tons of money for a game that is a semi single player game. Sure It have some interaction with other player but they apparently only work when the other player react to the  action of the other player within a short time … and yes it cost both player action points.

Fallen London is more of an ongoing CYOA with plenty of padding than a game, so once you run out of free content it runs purely on the strength of its universe (paid stories, Sunless Sea/Skies, etc) and the (hopefully) charming community.

I am fairly certain player interactions work even if you reply to them several years later, but they aren't that interesting by themselves until recently, and even then it still leans on both parties putting the effort in to RP.

 

The Scroll of Taiwu! Of course Nyaa is already doing a LP of it ?

It's probably the most depraved game I have seen so far, though, both on NPC and player behaviors. It is a Wuxia game on the surface, with elegant Chinese prose and full of wholesome inane life skills (no Greengrocery and Drive Carriage, but close enough), but NPC tends to enjoy autonomous crime, adultery, incest, graverobbing, while the player quickly degenerates into being a bodysurfing horror that eyeball anything as their next prospective suits of flesh.

There's already horror stories where a player poisoned a friend, tracked down the friend's reincarnation, adopted the friend, gave the friend plenty of support and sent them to be a Shaolin monk, only to poison the friend once again when they became a famous monk, tracked down the reincarnated kid once again for the grand finale of hijacking a body with some measly Kung Fu that get stronger based on the karma of previous life.

A pity. Well, I guess that reading Chinese will become even more important for me if the game be not translated.

The new game, Ho Tu Lo Shu : The Books of Dragon, from Helou Studio is now also at Steam but first of all so far it have no English translation and its clear nothing similar to Academagia. I still mentioned it because there was the misconception before that it could be related to Tale of Wuxia.
