One feature that has become common in otome games is "full voice" , which is to have voice acting throughout the entire game.
The love interests are often voiced by well-known voice actors.
This genre is most established in Japan, and is mostly made up of visual novels and simulation games; particularly dating sims and life simulation games.
In 2002, Konami released its very successful Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side, which brought many new fans to the still-new genre.
It's also common to find doujinshi featuring popular characters from otome games.
The potential partners usually require a certain parameter or parameters to be at a certain level for them to fall in love with you.
There is also often a pure dating aspect of gameplay in simulations.
Gameplay occasionally does not particularly focus on romance, even if there are several characters whose "routes" you can follow.
In the visual novel examples of the genre, the player proceeds in the story by selecting dialogue or action choices which affect their relationships in a decision tree format.
