One of the more mature titles on this list, Collar X Malice is a violent, gripping narrative in which death lurks around every corner — even around your neck. You play as a police officer heroine who, after being kidnapped and blackmailed by a terrorist group called “Adonis,” is forced to investigate dangerous cases on their behalf. If our heroine refuses, the poisonous collar on her neck will end her life. This one’s thrilling!

Collar X Malice is available on Nintendo Switch, Android, iOS, and PlayStation Vita.

Sagittarius – Obey Me!

Obey Me! puts a playful spin on the idea of the Underworld. As a gender-neutral self-insert, you have been sent to the Devildom to attend school alongside a family of demon brothers, and each of these characters gets plenty of opportunities to shine throughout the narrative. Including text messages, phone calls, and even Devilgram (the game’s version of Instagram), Obey Me! also features fun mini-games that help drive the story along.

Developed by HoYoverse, Tears of Themis brings to the otome genre the same level of stylishness found in major titles like Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail.

Tears of Themis is free-to-play on Android and iOS devices.

Aquarius – Hatoful Boyfriend

Aquarius loves the new and unusual, and Hatoful Boyfriend is certainly… that. At first glance, this game seems like nothing more than a lighthearted parody of the otome genre. Once you begin playing through the romance routes, however, you’ll uncover the incredible amount of lore hiding behind its silly appearance and see just how dark dating a bird can be.

Hatoful Boyfriend is available on Android, iOS, Steam, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.

Pisces – Blood in Roses
