This game was incredible.
I've played a few otome English games and I'm not too familiar with Japanese culture, so when in one of the first scenes there was a cross dresser named Haru I was a bit concerned I wouldn't like this game-- I was so wrong.
The visuals were fantastic, better than tons of otome games I have played previously. I was at first sketchy that Kaius looked a bit too anime styled, but as I continued the game and saw separate scenes he became more realistic in my mind.
I have only played the Kaius story line so far, but from what I have played I think this VN was better than some actual published novels I have read. It gave me chills, made me laugh out loud, and DAMMIT I DID GET A TAD TEARY OKAY
. I loved the character development, and I love how in the beginning I was sure I would never play the Kaius path because I found him so annoying, and now I don't want to play any other path for fear of disappointment. The comic relief characters (Haru, Kaius' dad, ect.) were strategically placed, and even they had a deeper side to them. The only critic I would say about the story is how the ending seemed a bit cliche, but I had enjoyed the journey to get to the ending so much that I really don't care. Really a fantastic story line, at least for Kauis' path.
I have a bit of a technical problem though, it seems as if when I save and then quit the game my saves aren't saved. I don't know if whether this is my computer's problem or a glitch in the game, but if you are able to fix it I would appreciate it if you did.
***and I really liked how this game was free.
