Primate Signal

Thought provoking, deep and twizted. Absolutely stunning graphics, audio and character development so much so that I actually was physically transported into the fucked up world of the minds of the Wainstop gang. This work, will replace the Bible in our churches. Thank you.

It’s not very often something comes along that is this unique. It has such a strong stylistic character that you feel transported to another world with the original artwork and music, not to mention the mind bending story. The time I spent in this world was totally bizarre in the best possible way. Nothing else like it.

Analogue: A Hate Story

Analogue: A Hate Story

As VNs go I feel really conflicted about Analogue. There were a handful of elements I was really impressed by, but ultimately I don’t recommend it. It’s frustration incarnate; more time invested in it brings the opposite of a sense of reward.

Analogue is a VN showcase of interesting ideas that are never seen through to their full potential. The setting is barebones, any mystery of the events on the lost colony ship doesn’t have any real contrast with the experience of the player’s blank slate agent; indeed throughout the game I felt the real mystery was finding out what was normality outside of the ship.

There’s no doubt that Steam has been flooded, for better or worse, by visual novels as of late.

Now, don’t get me wrong, Indie titles are great, but amidst the endless stream of “waifu”-bait visual novels (VNs) you’ll see here on Steam, I think you’ll be hard-pressed to find many decent stories with an intriguing plot that aren’t about getting in a girl’s pants for an affordable price. That’s par for the course when discussing visual novels, but that’s also why I tend to trust VNs from well-known studios/devs, because at least you know you’ll get plot while playing VNs of acclaim like Clannad, the Grisaia Trilogy, or The Devil on G-String in exchange for their premium price.
