Visual novels and games of this sort, I’ll admit, aren’t my bag in general, so while I try to be fair when checking them out I can’t ignore things I see as weaknesses. Accounting for taste and what you’re looking for, just like if you were reading a book or seeing a movie, is a big piece of the puzzle with these sorts of experiences, and that I don’t take issue with. In fact, the story revolving around a young man who aspires to become a supervillain isn’t so bad a concept, though the elements of some same-sex flirting and romance I’m not sure add to that story so much as take it off into a niche tangent. Regardless, what I actually take issue with is that though the artwork is fine enough compared to others in the genre there’s simply not enough of it, so a great deal of the time you’re just scrolling text on the same static moment, and that gets a bit dull. Perhaps more unfortunate in my mind is that there is also very little in the way of opportunity for you to make any choices or influence things, you’re really just reading, and reading, and reading. Just for me if you’re going to use this visual and interactive artform take advantage of it, otherwise just make it a straight up story.
