  • OK, so I’m still not quite sure how I feel about visual novel experiences on dedicated gaming hardware and Strawberry Vinegar, though certainly having a novel premise, is further down that path than most. Lacking much opportunity to make choices or interact you’re really just going to sit through a lot of text, and much of it doesn’t even pair with unique art to help make it feel like there was a real effort behind it. Weird demon here to collect your young girl character’s soul, you’ll need to appease her hunger, your parents are obtuse and clueless… if that really sounds great then more power to you but the lack of player agency and consistent solid visuals to complement the story make it a bit of a bummer even against its visual novel brethren.
