< report >So I just finished the first route and it took me approximately 5 or 6 hours (I'm a quick reader). I read somewhere that the second route is as long as the first one. If that's true, then there's no way this game is "short". For those who have read this VN, what do you think?

< report >To be honest, I always felt the whole game was longer than 10 hours (not that much, mind you), but I didn't want to change it because I wasn't sure if it was just my reading speed at work or not. That, and as the translator, I spent more time working on the game than actually playing it, plus each new time I played it was more or less to test or check for stuff, so I wasn't sure if any of that could count as a proper "playthrough".Last modified on 2014-10-13 at 08:48

< report >Halfway through so far, assuming the routes are equal length. It's definitely longer than 10 hours, but short feels like it does it more justice than the 10-30 hour category.

< report >finished i/o, a shorter and less exhausting vn is now pleasant ^^ it´s been a while since i read zero escape, but i enjoyed 999 much more than vlr, though it was much shorter, so it´s not always a bad thing :)

< report >I am not a particularly fast reader, but I finished this game in 7.5 hours. I tracked my playing time using WhatPulse, so it's definitely accurate.

< report >Sorry for necroposting.

#6 You are some maniac than. For me it took about 15 hours for both routes without skipping H-scenes. Even as I'm not the fastest reader, it will take about 10-12 hours for non-native speaker to finish all the routes IMHO.

< report >post decompositum posting -- Both episodes without the extras took me 19 hours. I'm always on the slow side because I let my mind wander if something catches me. But still -- 13 to 15 hours would be my guess for just reading it with listening out all voices and playing on auto advance with a comfortable speed for most of the game.

#7 right. My main language is also German (from Vienna) btw.

< report >personal see most length as adding extra 5 hours than what is posted.

15-30 hours is pretty long if don't have much free time can take up to week or more imo.

2-10 that 2 hours means realistically should be able to finish in 1 day or just a few sit downs over next couple days.

< report >For me, it was around 12 to 13 hours, with listening to voices on normal speed. Be wary of entries on VNDB that say "2-10 hours". Same applies to "10-30" (you never know if it's 10-20, or 20-30 xD).
