Hikaru was just a normal young man with a crush on two girls at school, that is until his whole world changed as he literally had to walk in the shoes of his dream girls... Only to find his school idols were not so perfect after all.
This is a Bodyswap/Possession Visual Novel commercially available on Mangagamer and with an all ages edition on steam. MG purchase will also provide a steam Key. At the time of posting We are also currently running Adds on the Database also.
This studio prodruces a vareity of Visual Novels and started running a Patreon in November as the budget goes up more more expenses will be paid on additional art/story length/music costs.
To: Alayla - Ackure here I have no intention to pull any reviews for whatever reason and do not believe in those. I will relay the majority of information to the developement team so they can make ammendments for future titles.
This title was not crowdfunded or funded off patreon whilst there is a patreon running right now it was made 1 month ago only. So length wise its incompairable to GBDNA which had reasonble funding. This team uses a multiuides of artist in titles and its the individual success of titles that effect who gets to stay on board for the next title. The previous title with the same artist on board but a different writer, did quite well but received a bad writing reception so this title the writer changed. But it also ended up 80% cheaper and a lot shorter. Vn prices are really awkward some are $9.99 for 50 minutes with no routes, some are $40 for 3-4 hours and some are $25 for 20 hours. A lot of it comes down to how satisfied you were with the experience & I can imagine that for a shorter title with less artwork you might believe its not worth the price. This is a kenundrum where i wholly wish the studio had more funds with artists/art style people appreciate or even longer titles its just finding out a way to make that affordable.
I play a lot of games on this database up to about 50% mostly the Rags/Html, of them there are not many projects that use original art assets and a fair chunk even use stuff they do not have permission to use or are even lifted from other vn's. Press Switch uses art assets from another Japanese Visual Novel game. True most of them are not seeking funds or even asking donations(some do). But we do have to do something to allow this scene to grow into bigger games one way or another. The Patreon/Free route works for some games but its hard to get everyone to believe its the right way & it tends to work better for certain kind of projects. Working better for either text heavy games without visual reliance or gameplay heavy games like platformers(act)
Game is good, liked the art, but overall itseemed short.
redplauge: actually, game was released few months ago, you can find it at steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/408770/
only thing to say about this, if your interested... the paetron is closed. so if you want to spend $12 then theres nothing to spend it on here. game seems dead.
Very linear in nature as it has a story to tell and its unfourtely not clear as to what choices affect the endings and to what ends. There is alot of trail and error if you want anything other than ending 3 in fact and seems heavily weighted in the favor of bad ends no matter what you do. I wouldnt even call this a game as much as an experince thankfully if you judge it by that standard or the way you would judge a manga its fairly decent and its story has a reasonable amount of impact for a game like this.
Its short as well as having fairly medicore art assests much in the same way as gender bender twister extreme in that regard and i call that a fair comparison considering they are both paid titles (granted judging paid titles by a higher standard seems to get reviews pulled from this website alot) but it lacks the depth or options of that game.
I guess the operative question here is, Is this game worth 11 $ If what your looking for is a tradisonal visual novel with a rare theme and a fleshed out and fully charticarized story yes if the subject matter is your type of thing.
If your looking for a life in someone elses body like simmlar renpy games here like press swicth or student transfer like i was? Mabye but your going to be disappointed with how little detail there was in that respect the body swaping was more of a plot device to get the MC to see the personal lifes of his idol's
If your looking for a fap game there are much better options out there you might get somthing for your trouble but id try most other games on the site before this as there isnt much in that regard.
PS. If this happens to get pulled and labeled not a review becuase i happened to mention the cost in my longwinded review im not going to bother supporting this dev anymore nothing i said was unfair and all in the realm of constructive critisims.
