I want to know why he told those things) When I choose games for buying I always read negative opinion, it's the best way to decide)

Idk but the game gets really sad, maybe he/she got overwhelmed by his/her emotions who knows... but this isn't a good reason to tell people to not buy the game.

I agreed) And tell me more about "sad part"))) Because one day I bought game with four ending when all of them were sad) So, I want to know, maybe I will be disappointed in the end.
Excellent renders , good animations , very well written and realized characters and a really beautiful yet sad story about friendship , love , loss , acceptance and finding the courage and willpower to overcome the darkest periods of our life. The game deals with very mature themes and I am not just talking about sex. I also understand the place the OP is coming from , the game outright rips your heart out towards the end but you know what , that's what made the story so effective in what it was trying to say.

Many will simply look at this as a simple smut game. I feel sorry for them cause they are missing out on something great

Okay I'm gonna post it in spoiler tags.


The game starts awesome. Renders are nice, characters are cool etc. Writing is actually great and funny. It goes great etc. The game leads you to a threesome between two characters for a while, and right before it some random side character turns out to be a psycho chick who burns your house, you can only save one of those two chicks and it becomes a depressed, boring slug. I searched for spoilers and haven't played the last chapter, because ♥♥♥♥ that ♥♥♥♥.

Not here too. Its up to the author how his game develops. The strength of the game is, that the decsions is that hard to make, because they are so likable and you do care about them.

Thats such a difficult task in such a game and a pro and not a con.

To avoid such a good game only because you cant get all of the girls ...

I'm not going to focus on this, but I will say the game got my attention but I would suggest people do not buy it as well to encourage different avenues of game development. I just want to say I found spoilers for this and I will say I have nothing against the content itself, I'm hardly a SJW, and I pretty much believe everyone should do what they want. I am not saying this game shouldn't exist, but I do believe we've seen enough re-treads of this kind of thing that it's time for arthouse game developers move in other directions.

This is basically what some people call a "despair simulator". There are a good number of games built around this kind of premise ranging from Japanese visual novels who will try and make you fall in love with someone so they can be taken away in the most awful "yet beautiful" way possible, or explore themes of people suffering child abuse and killing themselves, or just utterly surreal games that rocket towards an inescapably awful conclusion with any upbeat moments just to make the inevitable ending more painful. It seems nowadays anytime wants to make an artistic game it's always some variation and "well, let's see how much of an utter downer we can be". As I see things if you need a warning sign "do not play this game if you are already in a dark place" it's a good sign the game is one of these, as many of them include variations on this warning.

To be "helpful" if you want to get really depressed just track down Lisa: The First (not to be confused with the Lisa games on STEAM but related, it should be free online), or maybe something along the lines of the Half Life Mods "Cry Of Fear" or "Afraid Of Monsters: Director's Cut" especially the latter for full all out downer-fuel at the resolution. None of these will likely cost you anything as I believe all are free online.

Basically, I'd like to see the "despair simulator" go the way of the Dodo for a little while, and see if art house game developers can do something else besides recycle dark and depressing fare. I mean we long ago (and I mean REALLY long ago) determined that a video game can really depress someone, and those warnings exist because I guess a few people even killed themselves over games like these (or so it is claimed). Maybe it's time to see if video games an inspire joy and happiness in equal proportion? Take someone who is in near suicidal depression and uplift them maybe? I hear and see a lot less of this.

In general I'm increasingly coming to the opinion that unless your outright making a horror game (two of my suggestions are this) you should basically avoid being a total downer nowadays, unless it's some kind of cliffhanger intended to inspire a sequel. Maybe the time
will come again for "despair simulators" but I think right now they should be given a break, and people should consider spending their money elsewhere to encourage people to do other things. I'm not saying they should not exist, or that they are totally wrong, or anything like that, simply that we see too many of them, and we're getting to the point where it increasingly seems that this is pretty much where every artist winds up going.... I want to see it mixed up.

I expect overwhelmingly negative reactions, if anyone even reads this long thing, I am not sure if I will respond or not. I just wanted to show some support for the topic creator, even if my sentiments are likely along different, and more academic lines. Of course I'm 44 and came up at the height of both the Emo and Goth movements, so as a result I think we've gotten to a point where we might just want to let it die for a while. If your an "artist" and you can't think of anything to do that isn't a downer, maybe you should consider another profession IMO, because if this is where you want to go, your sort of just doing what everyone else has been doing for decades now.... as I said, try making people happy, not to depress "normies" that will weirdly enough stand out nowadays in the arthouse scene since so few people do that, and you'll find that it's *much* more difficult. As as been said before, there are about a million different horrifying versions of hell out there, but you'll notice so few people can create a compelling image of heaven.... THAT is a problem I think artists need to be working on fixing.
