We’ve got another indie visual novel to talk about today, this time a Christmas-themed otome called Wrapped With a Kiss.
You play Noel, a young woman who loses her job and finds herself with no choice but to move out of the city and into the small town where her sister lives.
There, she begins to settle into a new life with her sister, her niece, and the charming local carpenter as everyone prepares for Christmas.
The premise is about as classic as they get, but it’s a heartfelt story that explores these characters in a way that feels sincere and meaningful. The holiday setting adds additional charm and makes it a warm, cozy romance.
(Christmas is even more central to this story than it was in Wintertide Miracles, so I almost wish I’d read it in December instead.)
It takes only a couple of hours to finish, but despite its story length, it doesn’t feel rushed. Instead, the progression felt natural and believable. It has partial voice acting, although I found it distracting enough to have only occasional lines voiced that I turned off the voices.
Wrapped With a Kiss is a short, sweet Christmas story about family, romance, and finding what’s important in life. It might not be groundbreaking, but it’s the sort of feelgood visual novel that will leave you feeling happier afterwards.---
