Note: This game has been discontinued. You can still play the Main Stories, but the game no long has events.
“Please…marry me! It’s only for three months…” Though you just met…suddenly you’re married?! You find yourself in a contract of fake marriage for three months… But at the end of it all, what will become of you and your new husband? Will your love, which started as a lie, become true love after all?
My Forged Wedding: Party is a free-to-play otome game by Voltage, Inc. I enjoyed the pay version of this and I don’t know if you know this yet, but Yamato Kougami, the man in the front of the graphic, is one of my game husband.
The storyline of how you end up in your fake marriage makes a little bit more sense in this version. In the pay version, all six of the guys stand around you and are like: “OKAY PICK NOW” without giving the Main Character any idea what she’s picking for. In this version, you kiiiinda owe your fake fiancé a favor in return for bailing you out of your situation.
At the beginning of the game, Kunihiko is just going to throw love passes at you like nobody’s business. Seriously, you’re gonna play the first two chapters (20 together) plus the prologue during your first play. You also get daily login items to help you.
The game itself is pretty easy. Read the story, make selections, and compete in cooking battles for wife points, money, and gacha points. The UI isn’t too hard on the eyes despite being mostly pink. Whomever your husband is says different things every day in his area on the ‘My Page’ and occasionally he’ll visit the house and do/say something adorable as well.
The overall stories are pretty vanilla, There are two lover interests that I do not like in their Main Stories at all and I only managed to warm up to only one of them over time through events.
- It’s My Forged Wedding, but free and with a different story. LOL
- Long introduction of characters for those not familiar with them. If I didn’t already know everyone’s personality, the prologue will definitely give you some insight on them.
- Tons of bonuses. When you first start the game, they give you sign in bonuses daily. From clothes, to passes, and money, it’s non-stop with all the things it gives you.
- Picture album! You can pick the size that you want to see the pictures. Unfortunately, there is no way to save the picture from the album. Your best chance to get it full screen is to cap it when it happens in the story.
- Spinning the gacha is 500pts. That is a lot.
- No scenario album. Once you’ve read it, it’s gone until you re-play the route again.
- Cooking Lessons cost a lot to do and take a while to refill. Cooking Lessons – the way you earn money (mari), affection (called wife points here), and gacha points – cost 50 stamina out of 100 each and take 5 hours to refill. I end up setting an alarm -because I’m a crazy person – to remind myself if the game doesn’t already alert me with a push notification.
- You can’t go sweet route without opening your wallet. Sweet route has CGs and you can’t see them unless you drop some cash.
- When you start, you aren’t going to have a lot of room. With only 6 closet space and 15 warehouse space, you’re gonna have to get used to throwing things away to make room for new items until the game gives you space or you buy more.
- Save up your aroma therapy. Like with most games with events, you need to save up your stamina boosts to help you out for events. Resist the urge to use them during your main route.
- Login every day for bonuses. I login when I wake up first thing in the morning.
- Do your cooking missions at least twice a day (every 5 hours). It gives you wife points and gacha points. It’s better to have too much wife points than not enough. That way you aren’t frustrated when you get a mission and don’t have enough.
- Do your daily mission. I would recommend hold out on doing your gacha until you get a mission for it. It’s pretty expensive (500 points) and the odds of you building it up in the time frame of a day are slim.
TL;DR Good intro to otome game with vanilla stories. UI make take a bit to get used to. There is a lot to do in game so it may be confusing to a first time/casual player.
