Emi Ibarazaki Fan Artby Anagram-Daine
Not gonna lie, this genre of gaming (or is it even a game? More like a visual novel?) is something I am not accustom to, but due to my love of story driven point-and-click adventure games, and this leaning on to the side of story, it does make sense why I would find it interesting.
I was initally hoping for something that would make me laugh due to cheesy humor, but the story telling, was surprisingly engrossing.
To say the least, I was not expecting it to actually be interesting, and to compel me to see how the story unfolded. It reached me on level that made me feel something emotional, which I find very rare in games.
Though I might compare this more along the lines of a book with diverging choice paths, I have never had a book make me want to ‘Save Scum’ before.
I played through the Emi story arc. I found it touching, enlightening and inspiring.
I also played through the Rin story arc, which, hit really close to home on so many, many, many goddamn levels…
