The game is good as long as you know what you are getting into before starting up. Its a write your own adventure game. You play as the main female and what on the options you choose detonates where the story progresses. Its a very specific genre that many people no longer find enjoyable. However, if its your cup of tea its a good game.

This visual novel is geared toward girls but overall does a good job telling a story and giving you different endings depending on your choices. I bought the collectors edition and wasnt that excited to have the items inside. The comb and hair piece felt cheaply made and rushed (literally a wooden chopstick with a stiff charm at the end). However the box is beautiful. Overall a beautiful game with good graphics and a decent story.

This "game" has no gameplay. It is just a story where you get to pick different options. You never get to see the character move. It would be a waste of time and money for anyone who buys the game. I would rather watch anime.

Niche genre

Sorry to hear that you didn't like your first foray into the Visual Novel world. That said the game is part of a niche that appeals to an established fandom, just because it does not appeal to your own taste doesn't mean its not a good game.

Do you even know what a visual novel is? Any human who spends half a second looking at what this game is can realize that it it in all reality a VN, this specifically an otome game which appeals to women. In this, you follow the story and routes and choose the man you like by the choices you make. Not sure where in the world you got the idea that it was any different.
