You are a senior in high school with a lot of problems in life.
First, your longterm girfriend dumped you, and you have no money.
School is boring, and you don’t really have good grades. The people you meet and hang out with notice that something is wrong with you. How will you deal with your problems?
This is a sandbox game set in a fictional town called Jakuofu. You play as a male MC who has recently ended a long relationship with his girlfriend, and you don’t particularly enjoy your high school life.
While you can meet many characters in this game, including your best friends Shuu and Saki, a mysterious girl named Tomori moves into your neighborhood. You are intrigued by her, and she definitely has a crush on you, but you are not sure how to take this. Will you eventually get involved with her, or will something happen between you and Shuu’s sister, Yui, who was once madly in love with you?
As for the story itself, it is pretty messy, and I don’t really understand where the developer wants to take it. Once you relive five days as MC, the game turns into a sandbox where you have options; you can choose where to go and who to interact with, but it seems like everything is repeating. I believe they will fix this in the full version.
There are no lewd scenes, you get a lot of inner monologues, and you find out that something strange is happening with MC; in a scene where he is talking with his Sensei in school, the scene suddenly goes dark, resembling the beginning of something horrific, but not much happens after, so we are yet to see what that means. That could explain the horror tag, but it is only vaguely shown and explained, so I don’t know where the story could go from here.
This is a 3DCG game done in anime style. You get a number of fun characters with varied personalities, and each one has a different attitude towards you. The girls are nice, and you get a lot of characters to explore, but I didn’t get that interested because the sandbox part got pretty boring. It is animated, and it does have some background music.
As for the gameplay, in the beginning you are introduced to the characters, as well as the MC and his situation, and see a couple of settings: your home, your school, and some bars and restaurants. Once you get to the sandbox part, you can choose where you want to go and who you want to call. The second option remains mysterious to me because every single time I clicked to call someone, it said that the contact was unavailable.
All in all, there are some confusing things, but I guess they will fix that in the full version.
Overall, it is an anime-style game that involves a lot of different characters. It starts as a visual novel with no options, but then you come to the sandbox part, which I have previously explained. I think they could improve a couple of things and add more locations and options, because it got pretty boring for me to play. If you are looking to play a game where you would easily be able to access lewd scenes, this is not the one. I didn’t really get immersed in the game, but I hope the developers will be able to fix some things and add more content, because I think then the game could become more interesting.
I am intrigued by how MC and his ‘condition’ progress.
