|Review||TLDR for people who want quick opinion; I really enjoyed this game. I love the 2000s VN vibes it has (the interface, low res etc), so far of all the VNs I've played this is the best soundtrack like actually godly. Common route was pretty engaging, all of the routes are quite good, and I followed the order of the guide posted on steam here. (BTW I strongly recommend against playing R-18 patch, the H-scenes are horribly timed and are clearly just in there for fan service like most older VN)|
I think the best route is probably Komomo's, it really expanded on the lore of the world, and the mystery involved was good with an unexpected plot twist, and she becomes so cute once she enters dere-mode.
When it comes to the CGs, I was pleasantly surprised. I honestly wasn't expecting much from such an old game, but many of them are beautiful and fitting to the mood of the scenes, ESPECIALLY on the true heroine route, those ones are gorgeous.
There are large over-arcing plot points that have details slowly dripped into the story, expanding on the lore of the world throughout all of the routes until the end, and I found it really engaging.
The ending was slightly odd, which is pretty much explained by the fandisc "eternal heart" existing, which I have yet to finish. With that being said though, even without playing the fandisc the ending is still solid.
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) The game is worth it for Komomo tsundere route, and to head-pat Mare ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
