-Stalled, Read(ing) in Japanese12RIVEN -the Ψcliminal of integral-Got the two initial character endings and a bad ending or two, then went a fair bit into the integral route.2021-02-11
10FinishedActual Sunlightcompleted in like, 2012 or something. This is not a meme score, this is an unironic masterpiece in its excellent prose and gripping and (unfortunately at the time I read it) very relatable account of depression2021-09-26
-DroppedAdriftToo annoying gameplay, no true walkthrough available + UI made shit even more bothersome2016-11-17
-Stalled, Read(ing) in JapaneseAibeya 2~4000 lines read, first h-scene done, and I'm kind of not really sure what kind of interesting direction it could actually go in after this, so I'm likely to permastall this. cute heroine and good craft in general, though sometimes you feel the budget restrictions in how, say, the bikini is represented by exactly 1 sprite and no cg. It may or may not devolve into moenukige after this.2021-05-13

-Stalled, Read(ing) in JapaneseAmairo * IslenautsRead common, part of masaki's route, stalled for like 2 years, tried yune's route, stalled again, who knows?2016-11-17
-Dropped, Read(ing) in JapaneseAmai ShiruThis is a thin veneer atop an autistic slash scholarly essay on the history of tea and the sugar trade with like 50% of the text being reference citations. It's pretty hard to get through. When the hook broke, me and hata gave up.2021-02-03

7.9FinishedCardinal CrossRevolutionary ending (I think). I'm not sure if I want to get the other endings, as there are quite a few choices making it a bit mendou. Cool sci-fi game tho, overall recommended.2022-04-24

4DroppedDark NightsI got one good ending of uhh transforms-into-an-animal-kun. The pacing is bizarrely fast at the weirdest moments, the prose is bad (whose fucking idea was it for the main heroine to never ever use contractions? it doesn't WORK holy shit), the plotting is not particularly great either, the music use is weird, overall it just has a lot of craft problems. The setting is fun but the execution is very, very amateur and I guess cute supernatural boys aren't enough to distract me from the weakness of every element but the art.2020-03-06
-Stalled, Read(ing) in JapaneseDear My Abyssyuri cthulhu mythos horror with very fun writing. I stalled this because I didn't want to read horror while I was getting panic attacks from heartburn shit2020-11-06

6.5FinishedDouble ExposureA kind of cool concept with some nice moments both cute and tense. But god, the prose for the viewpoint character Serena and her narration is really bad. When you try to write something flowery - with big words and all that jazz - you really need to be on the ball, and the frequent awkward phrasings and plain misuses of words on show here fall very short of the mark. This also spills over into Lizzie's dialogue, which at times feels unnatural. There are also multiple technical problems (no music volume slider, auto slider actually controls normal text speed, right click doesn't cancel out of settings, backlog always rolls back to start of scene and there's no text wrapping...). Polish is also lacking. Typos and weird points where the textbox just goes blank for no reason and you have to click again to get more text are frequent. The good ending just pops you unceremoniously back to the title screen, after 2(!) clicks on an empty textbox. It's also a bit rushed.2020-03-06
