Enjoyed the game, considering this is in the early stages (note runtime errors on a early beta / alpha are not out fo the ordinary if you buy into alpha or beta then remember this and don't go giving a 1/10 review that is just childish.)
The control system cna be a touch annoying although i am sure in the future this will be worked on, the gfx while not modern per say are fine, the games monsters don't seem out of place the themese for different areas work well in a artistic sense and the ambience is good also.
Overall i gave it a 9 / 10 reason being is the dev behind this is doing a kick butt job on his own and he deserves the extra points based on that.
The game i currently would give 7/10 but the extra 2 points are for the deva nd his attention to his community well done look frward to more updates.
The cons - Iffy graphics, very standard npc's.
The pros - Simple interface that is easy to pick up, addictive gameplay.
The game allows for fight, or flight, in most circumstances, rather than forcing you to play a certain way. The storyline is engaging enough to keep you wanting to find out what's going to happen next, even if it is a little predictable. Combine that with such a reasonable price, and it's hard to go wrong.
This story gave me some mixed feelings. While it was scary as hell and had pretty creative maps, it kinda faild to satisfy me.
Its not deep in any ways. Its a classic "you found yourself locked up in a prison without knowing why. Escape!" I dont know who the character is, or whats behind the castle. Sure, its obvious some evil demons lives there, but why?
It also seemed like all the "puzzles" were way too simple or way too... well, "copy and paste". Keys, keys, keys, keys... and scary events 8/10 times I picked up a key. Waaaay too predictable. And all other things I needed were already done (acid mixture) and very simple to find (bonesaw).
I also disliked the enviroment sound in the cellar after the "Get out / Hallucination grunt" event. I dont know if its just me, but the quality wasn't good at all.
It really scared the hell out of me, so no doubt its not scary enough, but it seriosuly did not satisfy me. Its really well created, but nothing really special about it. Still deserves a pretty high score for your hard work and the heart attacks you gave me ;)
8/10 - Really good
Nearly a perfect game the only things that let it down right now is the atmosphere (does't have the tension of XCOm) and the fact there is only couple of maps. Their is going to be more maps in the full game and the tension may come with larger maps and more difficult enemies so all in all I'm thrilled with this game, as it looks like it's going to turn out top class.
The biggest bugbear for me is the difficulty it seems almost imposssible to lose right now and I have not lost a soldier that's a potential dealbreaker for me but I have high hopes.
Simply put got this and all it's expansions from Steam and it is by far the largest and most strategic RTS I've played. It also has an AI that puts most of the games industry to shame a fantastic game and for the current price a steal when you consider the content and variety that is present. Fair warning this game has a steep learning curve especially if you approach it like a normal RTS.
Minimal graphics, minimal audio, minimal gameplay, but fantastic atmosphere and story. Its like a comic with opportunitys to bring the story more in one or another direction. Its clearly more an interactive movie or a visual novel, than a classic adventure.
And with so many different endings and scenarios, this is a story you can enjoy more than once.
8,5 out of 10
Its good for that what it wants to be, I liked it a lot. But its just simplistic, but that was what I expected.
- Game is very short, you will finish it in half day. Most of japanese VNs takes weeks to finish all routes.
- No Voices!
- Only 2 chararacters
- No deep story
- Information I gained about Japan after finishing the game was not very worth
- Girls only have one pose and small amount of CG pictures.
- There are choices in game but basically you need to try them all to finish routes for both girls.
- Only 1 ending per girl
All i can say I expected more from game.
I was quite disappointed by this game, it's more like a basic touristic guide in form of a visual novel than anything else. There's no interactivity whatsoever in this game...
For someone who hasn't lived in Japan, it might be fun but for someone who lived there for a few years, it's really not that great
