Note: This game is VERY light on the choices, be wary of that if you prefer branching paths in your VNs. There is also a sex scene that was removed from this version, but I can assure you that nothing of value was lost.

This game is one of the most overlooked Visual Novels in Steam's library, and while I wouldn't say it's one of the best, it's certainly one of the most interesting.

If you're too lazy to read the product description and tags (because we all know there are tons of people who do that), MYTH is a confusing as all hell psychological horror cluster♥♥♥♥ of a VN with one of the most insane and bizarre narratives I've ever seen. Structured much like 07th Expansions psychological juggernauts Higurashi and Umineko, this game is split into "question" and "answer" arcs, though there are 2 other story arcs as well. The first is a prequel of sorts to the game called Aguni: Beyond Fate and the second a duo of joke episodes called Sou's Case Files.

The main story follows an ordinary high school student (big shocker for a VN protagonist, I know) named Meito Tanabe, who lives in a world where shadows apparently don't exist (it's best not to question how the ♥♥♥♥ that would work). He meets a girl by the name of Shimon, who happens to have a shadow, and after following her to a place called the World of Shadows, he gets introduced to 2 more girls with shadows and a whole village of living shadows (yet another thing best not questioned). What follows is a search for a voice that led Meito to this world and a complex web of plots involving his ex-girlfriend, storytelling, the norse pantheon, and a healthy dose of "what in holy hell name is going on?"

This kind of story would normally expect the reader to have extensive notes written down to document the characters, events, and relationships. Luckily, the game does that for you by providing character charts (detailing the characters themselves and how they relate to each other) notes on the events that transpire, which you will need to read to understand the impenetrable cage of insanity that is MYTH's narrative. I will say no more of the story since it really is something you need to experience yourself.

Outside of the writing, the game looks and sounds good for what is essentially an indie VN, the characters are well drawn and have decent variety in their poses and expressions and the soundtrack is honestly one of the best I've heard in a VN, standing right up there with Princess Evangile and the Key/VisualArts library. I'd say to give it a listen, but I've looked everywhere I can think of and have yet to find a rip of it, so you're gonna have to play the game to hear it. My only real problem with the visuals is that the UI isn't so hot. It isn't hard to navigate, but the looseleaf paper design of the textbox and the layout of the menus leave a lot to be desired in a game that costs $15.

Is it worth $15? That really depends on your tastes and money. I'd say wait for this one to go on sale to truly get your full money's worth if you don't have a lot of cash to throw around. It takes about 12-18 hours to see the story through to the end, and that is a tough sell for a game with little gameplay and basically no replay value.

Overall though, MYTH is a solid VN, and definitely a good addition to any horror enthusiast's collection, just be ready to put your brain to the test.

P.S. Sou is best girl!
Random BS you probably won't read
Basic Info :

:upset: Gender: Male

:steamhappy: Game systems owned: GBC, GBA, DS, DS Lite, 3DS, PS2, Wii, Switch

My General Demeanor :

:sou: I'm generally very laid back and personable, always willing to talk to someone if they need it. However, I'm also very blunt and will not hesitate to share my opinions on a subject. I'm not always available though, since school gets in the way and I get pulled away from my laptop a lot at home to help my mother with various things.

:sou: I prefer to be non-confrontational. Arguing is fine, but if it starts getting to a point where someone is going to say something they'll seriously regret, I usually try to dial the situation back a bit, especially in team-based online games with very toxic communities.

:sou: My philosophy is that anger at online games is for the weak and insecure, while anger in local multiplayer is just an average game of Mario Party :lilacstare:

:sou: I don't usually accept friend requests, and if I do accept it, I will ask you what your business is with me. I'm more likely to accept if you comment on why you're adding me, but it can still be up in the air. If you want to trade or something like that, I will immediately unfriend and block you, I do not trade, getting scammed out of 180 bucks worth of items will do that to a person.

Stuff I Play :

:sou: My online gaming mainly consists of TF2 right now, I used to play Dota a lot, but school is not going to give me time to sit down and play a match considering how long they take.

:sou: I love me some fighting games, mainly ones that are very heavy on the combo systems. Street Fighter isn't really my thing, unfortunately. FGs I prefer to play include Nitroplus Blasterz, Melty Blood, Skullgirls, and Them's Fightin' Herds.

:sou: I am a bit of a visual novel enthusiast, with an expanding library of VNs that I am more than happy to recommend depending on your tastes and budget. If you are interested in VNs, do not hesitate to ask me about good starting points, it's always good to expand the reader base:powapowa:

:sou: Outside of all of that, I enjoy playing Turn-Based RPGs such as Dragon Quest, Arc Rise Fantasia, and pretty much anything by Zeboyd Games. I grew up as a handheld gamer, so I guess this is to be expected.

Other Information :

:sou: I raffle off small things on to talk about what's on my mind or share music I enjoy. My profile can be found here []

:sou: I fancy myself a bit of a band geek, and will gladly discuss wind ensemble, orchestral, jazz, marching band, or whatever with people who also enjoy them. I also enjoy ambient electronica, synth rock, and general instrumental pieces.

:sou: I've been a Brony since October of 2013. Still enjoying the show and the fandom it spawned, especially the works by fans, which ended up being most of my MLP diet.

:sou: I was born and raised in a family of science fiction fans. Been a regular con goer for as long as I can remember. Actually, I'm pretty sure my mom was pregnant with me during at least one convention, so I feel I can say I was going to conventions before I was born :shimon:

:sou: I'm the first person to have crafted MYTH's foil badge (which you can see above), showing how obsessed I am with that game.

:sou: Sou is best girl :sou:
