RE4: Otome Edition (page moved to

Is there a mac version for this? Really want to give it a try! :) For now I'll entertain myself with YouTube playthroughs ahaha.

I'd love to give you a Mac version, but the engine we're using is, as far as I'm aware, locked to Windows due to DirectX. Maybe if some generous person wants to offer to recreate the game in Renpy for us, we could do it, ha.

If you have Bootcamp on your Mac, you could technically use that to run Windows software, but it seems inconvenient. Sorry! Hopefully you at least find some Let's Play you like!

Thanks for the info. I'll see if I can get ahold of a friend's PC for a few hours and download the game haha. If not, a Let's Play will work just as well. :) Thank you for the reply!

Holy shit, I love you! This is an awesome idea!

We love you, too, MintySlush, and we also agree that this idea took far too long to materialize, ha.

Gave it a go...

Thanks for giving it a whirl, StepThaGamer! I'll try to give it a watch if I have some time. However, is that RE6 Leon in the video thumbnail? If so, we consider that blasphemy. There is only RE4 Leon. Everything else is a fever dream. :P

Hey Erotome, no problem on the video! Pretty cool game you made. And yeah, RE6 Leon is nowhere near as handsome and manly (Ashley told me to put that) as RE4 Leon. BUT, it's still Leon nonetheless....I mean, just look at that face.

You're right - we wish we could look half as good as RE6 Leon, ha. Maybe we should have an epilogue that takes the events of RE6 into account...

That actually would be funny to see.

"It's been 10 years since then, and as much as the world has changed - often for the worst - it brings me some small joy to know that Leon's hair is just as wonderful as it always was."

One of my favorite youtubers did a lets play of your VN.... and I was surprised at how hilarious it was!!! I haven't laughed so much in a long time!

It brings us great satisfaction to know the game brought you such chuckles. Now, the important question: How does it compare to Sharknado? You can be honest; we've seen Sharknado, we'll understand.

This game is very funny!

I did a little let's play of it with my very interesting 'voice acting' lol. My cat also decided to join in! :p

Thanks for doing a Let's Play! We're glad you enjoyed it, but let's talk about what really matters: namely, how much did your cat enjoy it?

Hey! I'm sorry but for some reason I can't play it? It keeps telling me that I'm missing d3dx9_37.dll

I understood that this was me missing direcx 9 but I already installed it and it still shows me a window saying that I'm missing that.

I don't know what to do.

Hi Lexymatsu,

Sorry to hear you're having that problem. Usually, this is a problem with DirectX. Here's an article about some solutions. You can try restarting your computer; deleting the game and redownloading; updating your graphics drivers; or updating DirectX.

Let me know if any of those solutions work for you or not!

I'm pretty sure it is the same problem as me and the person below.

- Right click on the application

- Select 'Run with graphics processor'

- Select your processor

and it should launch for you :)

Hope this helped!

Thanks for the suggestion! Let's hope it works.

That was the trick! Thank you very much!

Hooray! Let us know what you think of the demo!

Hello I have downloaded the demo but I can't execute it, it says that I need to install direct x 9 but I'm on a windows 10 computer, what can I do to run it? Thanks :)

Hi nekohaten,

Windows 10 comes with Direct X 10, I believe, but you may have to install Direct X 9 manually for the game to run. I think you can download it via this link:

Try installing these updates, and maybe rebooting your PC, and let me know if that works.


Yes it was the solution, thank you so much!

Great! We hope you enjoy the demo!

I had the same issue,

- Right click on the application

- Select 'Run with graphics processor'

- Select your processor

and it should launch for you :)

Hope this helped!

THIS GAME.....IS AWESOME it just need's someone with long breath XDXD

You need a lot of breath, and yet Leon leaves you breathless. What's a girl to do?

(We're glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for doing a Let's Play!)

thank you for making it ... and please keep making more ^_^


Oh, we will. Eventually, we might even make something respectable!

found a bug where playing the game windowed and minimizing it would cause it to crash. had no other problems, and it was hilarious as fuck to read, and I respect that you used the Red9 in some of the game's screenshots.

(1 edit)

Thanks for pointing out the bug, thelordelric. I'll see if I can do anything about that. In the meantime, we're glad you found the game funny! It's the crux of the game and thus my greatest fear with it, but it's encouraging to know we're on the right path. Not that that will stop me from obsessing over each line, ha.

As for Red9, the merchant says it best: Strangeh, strangeh, now that's a weapon!


This was amazing. Thank you so much for making it.

We're really happy you enjoyed it! Thanks for doing a Let's Play of it. Hopefully the full game will be even better, ha.

What a tremendously hilarious prespective on one of my favorite games of all time. My brother and i read that and were nearly dying of laughter the entire time. Amazing job Erotome Software. Please i must have more !

What better bonding moment than fake otome games? For now, rest your funny bones - more is on the way.

Really enjoying it so far! It's much funnier than I would have expected, and it's great to see another, more relaxed perspective after having played through RE4 about 100 times. Though I do wonder if it'll be able to maintain this level of humour as it goes on. I wouldn't want huge chunks of the game ignored, but RE4 is a long game, and huge parts of that long game are pretty much just Leon quietly shooting things.

That being said though, I've got trust in you guys. So far so good, definitely looking forward to the full version.

Thanks for the kind message, mcatis! Believe me, the enormity of the task is not lost on us! But we plan to cover the game in its entirety - as far as scenes that involve Ashley, anyway (too bad for her, she misses out on some of Leon's best moments) - and we'll do our best to keep the humor level high. Fortunately, there's a lot of absurdity in RE4 to draw from, soook forward to the full version!

(1 edit)

this was such a touchingly loving and detailed tribute to RE4! i -loved- it. great work! seeing all of RE4 from Ashley's POV would be amazing

We really appreciate your kind response, missantroop! We admit to having played RE4 an unhealthy number of times, ha. There are more details that we're eager to incorporate into the full game that fans will likely appreciate. Hopefully the full game won't take too long - we've actually written the game up to the point of entering the castle, but we didn't have the time to really polish those sections for the demo.

Please rate and share the demo if you have an opportunity!

*Rurr* Hello! I begun playing and enjoying this game :P So I decided especially to make a Let's Play on it and show/review/critique the demo of what's so far available, and I want moar. Hope you enjoy my take on it - There'll be 3 parts to the demo (I'd say the part where you say it's 30 minutes long is wrong though, I'd say the game took 45-60 minutes for me and I'd not think I play slowly! xD)

We really appreciate you doing a Let's Play on the demo, Neco! To be honest, I'm a little shy about watching it, ha. Hopefully the fact that you "want moar" is a good sign - and certainly, we aim to please.

I've updated the expected game length in line with your comments. Thanks! Looking forward to the rest of your Let's Play!

I ain't a AAA-Let's Player but you never know, this could reach bigger and more popular people over a small time. And aye, a good sign.
