24 Games Of Christmas! Day #8: Blue Reflection: Second Light

2 mins read

As has become an annual tradition at DDNet, we are here to help you count down towards Christmas! One new game every day for the 24 days from December 1 to Christmas Eve. Think of it as a kind of Advent Calendar, if you will, giving you new tips and ideas for games to pick up and play at that rare time of year where everyone does have a little more time to indulge their favourite hobbies.

Also, it’s an excuse to post pictures of cute anime girls in Christmas gear every day. I won’t deny that we love doing that too.

Day #8: Blue Reflection: Second Light

As I’ve said a few times already, Christmas is a highly romantic time of year. A quick bit of trivia for you: Did you know that over in Japan, where Christianity never really took hold, Christmas isn’t a public holiday and it’s really structured more about the romance between couples? A little like Valentine’s Day, but less superficial. Their big, important, family celebration is New Year’s. Anyhow, I digress. Blue Reflection: Second Light is a wonderfully wholesome game about the love between girls.

I’m not even exaggerating about that. It’s an all-girl game where you go on dates and hold hands with your beau, and share deep, dark secrets. It’s a little like Persona, just very gay. And it’s presented in such a sweet, wholesome way that it comes across as the real Christmas romance – something pure and special, rather than the sexy and/or utilitarian approach to romance that we generally see in the gaming media. There’s not a Christmas tree in sight in Blue Reflection: Second Light, but it is perhaps the most Christmas-themed game of all.
