Blind Playthough Feedback (Emi Ibarazaki)

So I heard about this thing yesterday and thought I'd give it a go, free-game and all. Having played a handful of date-sims before, my opinion was that they where just a package deal for poorly written porn-mance with pictures, and I wasn't expecting anything more than that here. To my surprise and delight, I was sucked into Hisao Nakai's character before the prologue was even half-way through. From there, the excellently place visual effects, superb music, memorable characters, and mystery behind the entire cast kept me fervently clicking to this point. The fact that I didn't go back and change any of my blind decisions, trying to game my way to a specific goal, is a real testament to the writing. Even when Emi delivered the excelent line "I can't rely on you", I felt like I'd already lost the game, but I kept on clicking just to see the credits. To my amazement, they didn't come. And the story continued on to show me, ever so subtly, how to get things set right with her.

This game is so much more that I ever would have expected of a 4chan germinated project, that I am simply dumbfounded. Everything in the super slick interface with every option that matters to people who enjoy the genre (even the "adult-content" switch!) Everything in it shows a love for the project and I can safely say that it has inspired me as much as any movie or any book or any game I've ever enjoyed. Thank you.
