Which gaming mascot has raised pets lovingly, and also single-handedly slaughtered zombies in a way that would make Rambo look like a fruitcake to save a lonely, lonely town from ruin? Who is it for whom true love is both primary and secondary? Who stays amazingly agile even after being infected with a zombie virus that will take over her soul if she doesn't get home by the evening?
No one, right?
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: Chilia, of Circle Entertainment - an excellent (especially in recent times) developer known best for their 3DS eShop and DSiWare titles.
Chilia has appeared in pet sims, zombie-hunting apocalyptic survival RPGs and romantic visual novels. How's that for an unofficial video game mascot?
So anyway, the games:
Animal Puzzle Adventure (OMGSOCUTEICANT)
The Lost Town: The Dust (this one is the best and one of my favourite DSiWare titles)
The Lost Town: The Jungle (a sequel to the above game - just as good in terms of gameplay, but suffers from a bad localization)
Lair Land (love, true love!)
Chilia has been quiet recently. She hasn't appeared in a 3DS game yet, but I'd love to see her have another The Lost Town adventure in 3D (doesn't the idea seem great, Circle Ent.? *nudge nudge* Hmmmmmmm?) or as a cameo in games like the excellent ones Circle Entertainment has been coming up with recently - Demon King Box, The Legend of the Dark Witch, what have you.
The Lame Ending:
So, yeah, I did a blog. Yippeee!
The most underappreciated mascot ever
And probably the most versatile one too.
