< report >A story of a haunted house coming out on Halloween. How original. Well let's see if this one is any good or you would be better off playing football with a candle-lit pumpkin.

---Story---

Four girls find a seemingly uninhabited manor near to a swamp. So they do the most rational thing ever: they split up. Two of them breaks into the house, while the other two abuses (not that way) the frogs outside. However, the frogs refuse to take this so they turn into mutant zombie vampires or some ridiculous shit like that. oh, and we also have an old man who turns out to be a ghost. And a teleporting necklace. Yeah, the plot does not make a huge amount of sense.

---Artwork---

The background is mediocre at best. As for the sprites, it's strange: the girls are drawn quite well for an OELVN, but the old man and the frogs are like the works of a six year old child.

---Music---

We have some background music here but it's as shallow as it can be.

--- The .rar File...

Boring. Not funny, definitelly not horrifying and makes no sense. The characters are inconsistent, what is quite an achievement, considering that the whole story takes around 10 minutes to finish. The only thing that saves this thing from being an utter piece of crap, is the artwork. 3/10

< report >Oh, so it pretty much sucks? Too bad, this VN even caught my interest, for about 0,05s, because of the title and a rather decent 1st screenshot. But then I saw those frogs on the 2nd one... *Facepalm* XDLast modified on 2011-11-01 at 21:52

< report >You could give it a go, it'll take a maximum of 10 mins to finish it, but yeah, it sucks. The whole thing aims for a high WTF?! value but it didn't managed to surprise me. It's just plainly stupid.

< report >Well, I gave it a try after all, and it was... dumb. Just that. Story didn't even try to make sense, but it wasn't randomly insane to the point where it's actually a bit funny (like OMGWTFOTL). Just plainly stupid, exactly as you said. The author didn't have enough wild imagination/alcohol/weed/shrooms necessary to create a good WTF?! story, or was too lazy.

As for graphics, it's not strange at all - I bet that the place where they found the girl's pictures and the backgrounds didn't have any sprites of an old man or frogs, so they had to make those themselves (or borrow from somewhere else).
Still, they could at least cut the images out properly. Seriously, removing those white pixels around the sprites would be easy in ANY image editor (even paint, not to mention stuff like PS or Gimp), and it would take less time than reading this whole VN. -.-'

Certainly the best aspect of this VN is it's length. :P

Now, where did I put that candle-lit pumpkin?

< report >And that was the only redeemable quality of this VN. So, there goes my first 1 then. Also, thanks for the link, the premise of that is kind of interesting, will give it a go later.
