The cookies need saving and it’ll only be by delving into the weird world of Strawberry Vinegar on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch will you find a wonderful treat.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and PS4 for £9.99, with a Nintendo Switch launch set for a few days times, Strawberry Vinegar is a rather unique prospect, as it attempts to tell the tale of one Sakuraba Rie. A grumpy young girl, Rie has little in the way of friends, until that is a demon rises from Hell and pinches her lovingly baked cookies.
How that ensures the start of a wicked friendship, I’ll never know, but in Ratalaika Games’ latest cheap addition to the Xbox Store – hot on the heels of Syrup and the Ultimate Sweet – that is exactly what is happening. With the full development duties carefully handled by the visual novelist ebi-hime, and it coming to market with a low price to boot, taking in this latest love story should be something to seriously consider, especially since no less than 6 different endings and a mammoth 80,000 word count could be yours for the taking.
- Feast your eyes on succulent mouth-watering art of food.
- Sumptuous 80,000 word count with 6 different endings.
- Experience a unique tale of friendship between a young girl and a demon.
- Updated blinking sprites and UI.

Sakuraba Rie, aged nine, is a cynical and grumpy girl who cares little for her fellow classmates, and does not have a single friend. That is, until a self-proclaimed demon from the deepest, darkest pits of Hell suddenly appears in Rie’s kitchen and steals a tray of cookies. What will happen between these two young girls? Will friendship blossom between them, or perhaps something more?
