Foreword

Attention!

This article is pending review. It is either incomplete, out-of-date, or I feel the need to disclaim my shame for a something I’m not proud of.

Gameplay

. . . in a nutshell

I need to make some revisions.

out the shell. . .

As a story heavy game, you can expect to smash through textboxes. Every so often you will encounter choices, which will affect outcomes in the story. There are few choices to make, as this is a very linear game. If you press the “esc” key, the game will minimize. This is much, much preffered over other applications that close with the “esc” key.

Story

The story starts with the protagonist (Akuru) recounting a tale of romance. In the story, an alien professes her love to a man on Earth (out of the blue). Akuru questions how people (in real life) find love, if they just meet some stranger that “sweeps them away”. This recollection strongly alludes to the rest of the story.

Akuru has a gambling problem. She sinks her paychecks into a mobile gacha game called Kensho (or “Sellswords”), egged on by her friend Shino. She’s after the (“Super Rare”) character Kohee-kun, and the last of her money is riding on one (randomized) pull. Before she had a chance to do the deed, an arrogant girl offers to “use her luck” to win Akuru something good. Against all odds, she pulls Kohee-kun, and Akuru spills her guts about how much she loves Kohee-kun, and how she’s going to marry him.

Little did Akuru know, the girl thought she intended those words for her.

The next day, Ren tracks Akuru down, her “future fiance.” It takes Akuru a bit to figure out why Ren thinks she proposed to her, but she decides to entertain her. Ren is very, very pushy and is (suddenly) in love with her. Since the events of yesterday, Akuru figures she can take advantage of Ren’s luckiness for her mobile gaming.

Akuru is a twenty-six year old, and she’s never loved anyone but (fictional) men from Kensho. Ren’s a young, young teenager who’s super trendy. Their tale together is one of age and social barriers, and one of sexuality.

Visuals

The title screen is static and fanciful. You can easily change your choice language, and preferences. There are plenty ‘o settings to tweak relating to text and sound. The “Extra” selection serves a gallery, where you can review images, movies and music. The developers snuck their other works in under “Official”. It’s not too intrusive, so I give this self-advertsing a pass.

The portraits are high quality, but not varied. Each character has plenty of facial expressions, but I was disappointed by the lack of variety of outfits and poses.

The Goods

The artwork is awesome! I’d venture to say professional. There isn’t anything lewd (at least in the base game), but there are lovey-dovey scenes and the like. I thoroughly enjoyed the watercolor-like aesthetic the images had.

Verdict

This is a highly regarded game, and I can see why. It’s far-out tale, and starts like a generic manga. But by golly, it’s a sweet lil’ tale. I’d hop on this title when it goes on sale.
