A lot of things can happen when you’re in love, and with a little luck, most of it will be good. Such is definitely the case for high schooler Hifumi Tanaka, or it would have been, except fate decided to intervene and leave a baby with wings and a halo on the doorstep of her crush, the sunny delinquent Kasumi Itou. Just as their relationship was starting to go somewhere, too. Yeah, GOOD LUCK BABY!
As if that wasn’t troublesome enough, how about an evil, ruthless empress, just for good measure? Metis is, according to the creator of GOOD LUCK BABY!, “the ultimate evil” – in other words, seriously bad news, leaving Hifumi and Kasumi with quite the adventure ahead of them. One spanning over 150,000 words and three entirely unique routes:
- “SUMMER 2002” covers Hifumi and Kasumi’s journey to save the world.
- “SPRING 1902” is a dramatic, moving tale of two women defying fate together.
- “WINTER 200X” tells the story of an alternate universe in which Empress Metis manages to take Earth for herself!
1902? A tale taking place exactly 100 years before the events of the feature presentation, eh? Interesting. Very interesting. Oh, speaking of which: while Hifumi and Kasumi are obviously the main couple, they’re far from the only one in this visual novel. To quote its creator again: “Main couples, side couples, even villainous couples! Come and take a look at all of our yuri wares!” Sounds like a genuinely good time to me. What do you think?
GOOD LUCK BABY! is available on Steam and itch.io for $14.99.
