I also remember she had another story with that yellow thing (if I recall, we never knew i agree with you in saying that they seem pretty simple looking back on them now.
i'd say the otome scene has come quite a long way since then!
Around that time I switched to visual novels on Renpy /mobile and then to otome games.
I still miss Pacthesis :"( Glad she at least released Star Days which took years iirc between its announcement and actual releasei'm with you on that, part of me longs for more Pacthesis content, just for old times's sake.
My favorite is probably that (I LOVE Alice in Wonderland to bits aha) or Kingdom Days. Like, it seemed like a lot was cut out and the relationships felt too forced.
She recently-ish came out with a new game (Star Days) And tbh... And I did see on her blog that she did scrap a lot of ideas for the game :( But I'll always support anything she makes, and look forward to anything that might be down the pipeline for her!
Sometimes I play them again for nostalgia like her more recent one Star Days and I even played her non dating sim ones like the Adventures of Mr Xolga and Toko or something.
Lunar days, Chronos days and Number days were my favourite ones but now Star Days is up there too. Just like how other users said, she made me discover otome games.
I remember my favorite was Lunar Days (Sky was Best Boy™).
I think I might take a walk down memory lane and replay a couple of these. Pacthesis was probably what made me discover otomes as a whole!
