"Um... where are your parents?"
"Our parents were called out of town for two weeks on urgent business."
(In other words, the only ones in the house will be Makoto, Akira, and I?)
(How is that going to work!?)

The local culture has some surprises in store on your first night there, but you'll soon head out on the town! Enjoy the date-like atmosphere as Makoto and Akira take you on a tour of famous sites.

Played it, quite good of a visual novel game. It has the option of having both the Japanese and the English text on, for reading practice I reckon.

I personally think the price represents good value for money. There's a lot of interesting content, and it's a lot of fun to play.

Purchasing this game from Desura is cheaper than buying the hardcopy version (£9.50), as I did.

While I admit that it looks amazing and I really enjoy Visual Novels, I'm kind of shaky when it comes to paying for one. All the ones I've played were free(RE: Alistair, Katawa Shoujo, Don't Take It Personally Babe It Just Ain't Your Story) and on top of that this one isn't like a light jump from free to like €3.-(I use Euros :P), it's €10.-.

I do have to ask, RE: Alistair was pretty short and it's the only one I've played on Desura. How do I know that this one will have more content? :/

Admittedly, from that perspective, Go! Go! Nippon! is expensive compared to those titles, and it is quite short compared to something like Katawa Shoujo.

What I would say, however, is that one of the reasons for the pricing is because unlike the visual novels you have mentioned, this one was developed in Japan, specifically for the overseas market. Some people are prepared to pay hundreds of euros for Japanese visual novels, and compared to those, this is rather cheap. Unfortunately, everything from Japan is rather expensive compared to from Europe, due to the high value of the yen.

Either way, Go! Go! Nippon! is a unique way to learn about Japan and have fun at the same time.

It's not only that - the art is far superior compared to amateur-made VN's like Katawa Shoujo. I don't usually care about graphics but visual novels are kinda like anime - I like specific chara designs and enjoy looking at them. The art alone is worth the 10 bucks.

I was quite disappointed by this game, it's more like a basic touristic guide in form of a visual novel than anything else. There's no interactivity whatsoever in this game...

For someone who hasn't lived in Japan, it might be fun but for someone who lived there for a few years, it's really not that great
