Kokurase is a game where you take control of the Kokurase gang, who are also known as Cupid’s Helpers, to help out certain people, who don’t have a lot of luck with love, to win over the ones they fell in love with. In the first episode you helped out a girl called Sakura in charming a popular senior called Yoshimitsu. In Episode 2, we get new characters and new romantic developments!
The second episode went live on Steam, but if you haven’t played the first episode, it’s free on Steam right now, so you should probably go play the first one if you’re going to play the second episode.
In Episode 2 Kokurase and friends try to help a shy student this time, and his name is Kotaro Hino. He has his eyes set on Madoka Asagaya, who’s the most popular girl in his class. Our poor Kotaro Hino will also have to compete with Madoka’s childhood friend, Musashi, who is quite wild and reckless, totally opposite of Kotaro. Musashi isn’t the only threat here, as a mysterious group called the “Thin Red Liners” comes and they’re opposed to everything the Kokurase stand for.
You will be switching between the major characters to understand all sides of the story and explore all possibilities. Using “Key Phrases” in character interactions and completing challenges will allow you to either sow the seeds of love, or undo them, it all depends on the player. Episode 2 looks like it’s going to be a lot more fun, but also filled with more humor and drama, and both are welcome!
