Love and Order mixes dating and mystery into an enjoyable visual novel meets dating simulation developed by Winter Wolves. The game was released in 2011 and just like their other games there is a playable demo available to players, in March 2019 the game went free to play on Steam.

The game takes place in a small district of Montreal and follows the acts of the Crown Attorney authority.  The Crown Attorney relies heavily on its lawyers to ensure the law is upheld and also the work of a single secretary (which is the role that the player assumes).

This secretary is Dana Larose who is looking to gain a step up in her new career as secretary in the Crown Attorney’s office. With limited staff and a huge workload your helpful services are in high demand but it’s ultimately up to the player where they commit themselves. The game challenges you to juggle this high workload while discovering a hidden mystery and if you’ve still got time left to find love in the office. In order to succeed in Love and Order you’ll have to manage your time effectively and prevent your stress from reaching excessive levels.

Your choice of love options includes your boss Ross Kim, a third year law student by the name of Jonathon Nyugen and the assistant attorneys Pierre Martine and Dorothy McCoy. Between the four options there is plenty of variety in their personalities which helps reflect a true office workplace.

Since the game is set in a workplace you won’t be jumping right into a relationship at the same speed as other dating simulation games. Instead Love and Order is much more slower paced with players having to gain the respect of all their fellow co-workers and then impress the person that they want to pursue by building up a rapport.

The game is more management and simulation focused then your standard visual novel or otome game which means there is plenty of appeal for a variety of different players.

Summary:

  • Unique office setting generally not touched by the genre.
  • Plenty of management aspects to give you freedom to drive the story.
  • 4 different co-workers to pursue.
  • Try and beat stress in the office.
  • Demo available.
