Detention 返校 Review

Red Candle Games delivers horror as poignant as it is piercing, showcasing for the international game community the horrors of authoritarian communism. Although Detention has several points which can be improved, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts; players will walk away – or run, screaming – with a fresh, thoughtful gaming experience.

Negligee Review

Unfortunately, despite quality personification, Negligee's plot and dialogue fall flat. The key to a compelling narrative is introducing problems for the characters to solve. The issues facing Negligee’s characters are painfully mundane. As a result, the plot flops without ever finding a meaningful hook. There are long stretches of stagnation while the protagonist vacillates between hesitancy and insecurity. Instead of excited, I found myself irritated and impatient, quick-clicking through conversations in the hopes of getting to the interesting parts. Sadly, by the time the game delivered, I was too bored to care.

Gal*Gun: Double Peace Review

Loved it! Gal*Gun: Double Peace may be a shocker and an average port, but it's still a great game. I'd go as far as saying it's one of the best ones I've played in a while, and I would even recommend a purchase at full price. The replayability and fun gameplay are worth it.

Maraiyum: Rise of the Setting Sun Review

I want to recommend Maraiyum: Rise of the Setting Sun; I do. I was utterly charmed by the writing and the storytelling, but it is too repetitive, too frustrating, and too obtuse for me to tell you, go ahead and buy it.

Echoes of the Fey: The Fox's Trail Review

The work put into the history is wonderfully written and both writers, Malcolm Pierce and Jenny Gibbons, have done a fantastic job of giving this game life. Look into this game if you are into story games/visual novels.

Highway Blossoms Review

The beautiful artwork coupled with such a story line, not to mention the technical ease at which the camera moves instead of watching still frames, Highway Blossoms is one of the best visual novels I have had a pleasure of reading. A lot of thought went into this story and the extra attention to both the writing and the programming shows.

Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma Review

Whether or not you are familiar with the Zero Escape series, Zero Time Dilemma goes over and above what one can expect an interactive story to deliver. This isn’t a detached puzzle game that moves from one challenge to the next. This is a profound experience that stays with its players well after the credits roll.

Demetrios - The BIG Cynical Adventure Interview

Demetrios is a full-length adventure game packed with silly humor. 8 to 12 hours of fun!

Orion: A Sci-Fi Visual Novel Interview
