Not a VN

Honestly I'm not sure why this is even on here. There are like 9 cutscenes that are 3 minutes long, and nothing about this says "Visual Novel" to me. Is it just on here because Sayori?

More like because nekoworks and "ENGLYSH". In any case, Sayori and the crew are completely into cashgrabs, realized that they can cash in on ENGLYSHspeakers.Last modified on 2018-07-30 at 00:54

This crap is a freeware. Really bad excuse though considering nothing on earth can justify clickers.

Considering how much time you need to put it just to view these characters, and how much time shortened when you pay...yeah. This wouldn't qualify as a visual novel because of how much time you need to spend in this just so you can view the "Visual Novel parts" in this game. I guess it wouldn't be worth the 30 days just to get one character at a time if I just idle to acquire the character in this idle/clicker hybrid game without paying.

Eh, maybe it's because I'm personally against "microtransaction-heavy gameplay" as much as how lootboxes were a pain since 2017.

The art is still great nonetheless, but Sayori needs to consider researching demographic interests. Exploring new directions can be risky, but I hope she knows better what she can do with her own talent wisely. :/Last modified on 2018-07-30 at 08:11

#4 Honestly, the respect is already lost as far as I'm concerned. No matter how good artist Sayori is, the moment someone goes the route of clicker cashgrabs they won't get any money out of me, ever. It was their conscious decision to release something that isn't even a proper product aiming for 'easy money'.

PS: Sayori might as well have invested in her own skill to increase variety instead, characters drawn by her are cute, but the evergrowing sameface is atrocious.Last modified on 2018-07-30 at 17:02

Every game that Sayori has done since 2014, possibly excluding Koikuma, is a cash grab to take money from Steam users who don't know any better. Considering both this and Tropical Liquor were successful on Steam despite clearly being absolute garbage, I'm just going to assume that, at this point, Sayori could make a remake of Dustmania Grotesque ~Kaitai Sounyuu Shinsho~ and Dual Phase ~ Soukakurou (Anal mo Vagina mo Hirogacchaimashita) and it'd still sell like 100,000 copies.

So does this has any viewer like the TABA ones?

Huh, I missed this thread the first time around. So there's really only around 20 minutes of VN-like content in this "2-10 hour" game? Just one super short h-scene per girl or something?

The art for this is really good. Those H-scenes look great. Too bad the "VN" as a whole is dog shit.

Welcome to Sayori's brand which very similar to Inma Ruiz's: Be a talented female artist and draw for the worst stories... or rather, games. While indeed, they sure should increase their variety for once.

@dk382, yes, pretty much exactly what you said. This """VN""" is extremely lacking in content.

Honestly speaking, there should be another minimal requirement for stuff to be added - a certain amount of story.

Putting 100 lines of text doesn't qualify something as a "novel", even if the developers artificially extend the length with repetitive gameplay.

Well, if one wants to be pedantic, then the word requirement should be 7500 words or over, since anything under is classified as a short story~

But seriously...
even if the developers artificially extend the length with repetitive gameplay.
There is already the requirement that read time should be bigger than game time. If one has only 100 lines (1000-2000 words), then the gameplay should also last no more than 5-10 minutes.

Oh the read time is absolutely much less than the "gameplay" time
