A New Perspective on a Classic Adventure

2004. It was the year when millions of players assumed the role of rookie cop-turned-secret agent Leon S. Kennedy as he traveled to rural Spain in pursuit of Ashley Graham, the president's missing daughter. A watershed moment in gaming, Resident Evil 4 was a reinvention of both its series and its genre - not to mention one hell of a party.

More importantly, Leon had amazing hair. Oh, and he flipped over lasers. For many, he entered the hallowed halls of video game heartthrobs in the same way he crashed through two-story windows: suddenly and with swag.

But we all know Leon's story. What about Ashley's? For the players of Resident Evil 4, she is, at best, an objective; at worst, a liability. A human cog in a well-oiled gameplay machine. But what if she was more than that? What if she was an interesting person, thrust into a crazy world with crazier men who run the gamut from hottie to hellspawn? How would she narrate this nightmare and who would she actually fall for?

Wonder no more. This is her story. This is RE4: Otome Edition.

  • Relive the events of Resident Evil 4, faithfully recreated from Ashley's perspective - and with exactly as much absurdity as that entails!
  • Kindle your relationship with a host of eligible bachelors, including the stoic Leon, the mysterious Luis, the evasive Merchant, or perhaps even the conniving Lord Saddler!*
  • Discover what happened to Ashley in the scenes you never saw, such as her initial kidnapping.
  • Make fake decisions that reveal the illusory nature of choice!
  • Demo Length: 30-45 minutes (based on reading speed) 
  • Full Game Release Date: January 2020
  • Gameplay Style: Visual Novel

DISCLAIMER: RE4: Otome Edition is a parody and thus subject to Fair Use. We are not in any way affiliated with or endorsed by Capcom. All rights belong to their respective owners. If you haven't played Resident Evil 4 yet, you probably should. Fortunately, it's on most every major gaming platform.

 NOTE ON DEMO: This is the original demo that was released in 2017, but a lot has changed about the game since then. Rather than publish a new demo, we're currently focused on just finishing the full game - hence why the screenshots and promo materials no longer match the demo. Nonetheless, the demo provides a sufficient taste of what you can expect - only it gets better!

* You can't actually do any of this, but Ashley doesn't know that.

Let me know when y'all finish production. I wanna experience the complete package


It's not gonna be much longer, god willing. Start saving up some time and telling your friends.

How's the project? I just played the demo once again and I hunger for more!

It's slow-going, due to unfortunate distractions like "day jobs" and "errands", but it is coming along. All of Chapter I has been imported into the new engine, and there's been a lot of new material added. We're trying to polish up Chapter I before transitioning headlong into Chapter II (which has the brunt of its content mapped out, and some of it already ready to import). We're entertaining getting a new demo out once that's done - but at the same time, the quality differential between the demo and the full game is pretty stark, so we might want to preserve some of the surprise factor and just focus on a full release later this year.

In any case, I'm using what's left of my youth (which isn't much, to be fair) to burn midnight oil and get these games done, so we hope to show you something more soon! Just keep the hunger alive! Y'know, like Ashley!

I'm glad it's coming together nicely. I can't wait and see how Ashley is going to react when Ada shows up ;D

Perhaps the more interesting topic is how much opportunity does Ashley actually have to see Ada? Hmmmmmmmmmm.

I'm sure that you have some awesome twist in mind ;D

We lay claim to nothing. Expect as little as possible, so as to maximize your satisfaction, ha.

this is amazing... can't wait for the water room

Ho oh, yes, the infamous water room. We have plans. Personally, I'm looking forward to recreating Ashley's gameplay section. 

And lets not forget the final pass Ashley makes at the end to Leon XD

It's gonna be one hell of a party.

Just gonna say take your time guys!! Its great so far so don't rush it :)  Keep up the fantastic work :D


Thanks for the well wishes, Derptaku! We'll certainly give the game its time in the oven (we're not planning to charge for it, so it's not like we have much to gain by rushing it out), although we'd like to get it out sooner rather than later, before we get too old for doing actual otome games, ha. Fingers crossed for a release sometime early 2019.

when will the full game be available?? I have a blast playing the demo and I need more ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hey Agentskennedy (Leon, is that you?!),

We would like to have the full game out by the end of this year, but we're dedicating the bulk of our time to finishing our first game, Paws & Effect. After that's done, Otome Edition will take center stage. However, considering that we're migrating the whole thing to a new engine and still have two thirds of the game to finish (the bulk of the castle and the island), it may slip into 2019. The downsides of having a day job! We hope you'll keep the game in your thoughts until then, ha.

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!๐Ÿ˜‚Omg! This was hilarious!!!!!!!!!!

Glad you liked it so well! We feel pretty confident in saying that the full game is a marked improvement over the demo, so we hope you'll look forward to playing it in the sometime-eventually future!

I am really looking forward to the full game! It must be Awesome!!! I always wanted to know the story from Ashley's side in resident evil 4๐Ÿ˜† but now this dream is gonna come true!!!!๐Ÿ˜‚ thanks to you!!!!๐Ÿ˜‰ YAY!!!!! And thanks for replying!!๐Ÿ™Œ 

*Rurr* Hello everyone ;D I remember this game, and for anyone who cares, I have my funny gameplay and commentary of me playing the demo for anyone who'd like to see how funny this game can be :P Can't wait for the full release
