About The Game System
With multiple stories to choose from, read any story you like by using passes. The max number of passes you can hoard is only 2. Passes allows you to read a single chapter and regenerates every 2 hours with the exception of prologue which is free. Login daily to collect diamonds. Diamonds are used in every chapter of the story.
For every choice you make in every chapter, you can either choose the option that does not require diamonds and get a normal ending or the “correct” options that you pay with diamonds to obtain a happy ending with your male lead.
Some of the ways you can obtain diamonds for free are through:
- Login Daily
- Choosing to read Diamond Boosting stories to obtain bonus diamonds.
- Earning S-Points via Tapjoy and converting the points to diamonds. 20 S-Points is equal to 1 diamond.
Thoughts About The Game
I was pretty meh about this game app with such expensive usage of diamonds – it takes at least 12 diamonds to select one good choice. Was going to uninstall this app but …WAIT. O.M.G. What did I see?!
Looks like NTT Solmare has managed to obtain the english publishing rights for Wand of Fortune and The Beastmaster and Princes under the Story Jar app!!! For those unaware, Wand of Fortune and The Beastmaster and Princes are otome games under Otomate, a video game developer known for their games such as Hakuoki, Amnesia and Code: Realize.
Unfortunately, Wand of Fortune and The Beastmaster and Princes are not yet released on Story Jar. However, we can hope for the game to be released very soon on Story Jar.
In the meantime, I will slowly read through the stories and hoard my diamonds. (Wand of Fortune, I’m coming for you ~~)
EDIT: Both Wand of Fortune and The Beastmaster and Princes have been released in the app.
