5 comments by Henley on Nov 1st, 2013


With these four games combined your Friday adventure into Freedom will be complete! Allow me to introduce you.

First up we have the lovely Project Dualis which is a story of two sisters, Yuki and Yumi, who are linked together more closely than what it would first seem. Over there is the powerfully spooky title The Piano. The Piano is a first-person Horror/Ambient Game about John Barnerway who is trapped in his own limbo. Perfect for a free Halloween scare!


Next we have Dengen Chronicles. DC is the most engaging online customizable card game in the Manga universe. The innovative addition of strategy and role-playing aspects makes the gameplay original and intense. Last but not least is The Burrow, a short interactive experience. The narrative develops through the player's interaction with the game's world. Every exchange is significant and becomes a part of the narrative.


Come back same time next week for more Freedom experiences!

The first few days of the story for both character arcs. This is still very much work in progress, so tell me if there's anything that I could improve...

A few critisisms:
The "bad":
The default level of the background music overpowers the character voices most of the time (had to set it to about 30%). The voiceovers were actually good but one character wasn't voiced and threw me off. Also, not all of the dialog of the voice character were voiced or didn't play when they needed to. There was one line that played 2 lines earlier. The backgrounds were not very good (even to indie standards...i mean there was a picture of a sign with nothing on it with Haru tell us what's suppose to be there). I've seen other VNs with the same style of bachgrounds but a little less filter would have been much, much better.

The "meh": The voiceover felt slow at times and didn't go as fast as I wanted it to (not really a bad thing, more of a personal preference). Characterization is pretty generic (the tsundere, shy bookworm, typical anime slice of life best friend) but generic does not mean bad.

The "good":
Voices were good if not great. Characters were very likeable. The plot was very good (well of the endings that I got). The music was ok? (I didn't really notice it but I did hear something very similar to the theme of Disappearance of Haruhi during (bad) ending 1). CG was also well done. One of the things I loved was that the VN didn't follow the formula of school life then emotional turmoil and intertwine both successfully.

Overall: It could use some improvements but still very enjoyable (and free!) ^_^

um..it's kinda my first time using Desura so sorry that my comment is so long. I always enjoy talking about stuff I've recently played and enjoyed. (and the character limit is 2000 anyways)

Kinda a second note here: I think I finished the entire game because I've chosen every different combination of choices.
-It turns out my speakers are acting up so the music might not have been as loud as I though it would be.
+A most definite plus is the fact that the choices influence the game heavily and don't just feel arbitrary.
+The two "full" routes are completely different, something that is usually avoided in VNs
-Choice in music was a bit strange for one scene (well the 2nd half of it anyway)
+/-there are two unused pictures in the gallery that I feel should have been used in an epilogue but I still enjoyed the surpirse of finding them there.
+/-unvoiced character only appearing in one route so I understand why he is not voiced.
+Both routes are able to stand on their own without over shadowing the other.

If I gave the game a rating before, I'd increase the score after finishing the entire thing.

I would like to try this game out but I am wary of who this game is aimed, at would it interest a man 18-100 years of age. Please give me the honest answer, not just trying to get in the widset possible audience.

If I had to give the game a range, 13-30? Honestly, it's hard to give this game a range. There is no sexual content so those under 18 can still play it (lower limit of 13 because I couldn't think anything). As for an upper limit, there really isn't any unless you've lived too long and read too many VNs (30 because you should be playing with your kids if you have them or trying to find your soulmate if you haven't).

I'd recommend it because 1) it's short (took me about an hour to finish and that's with me doing other things at the same time) 2) it's pretty good and 3) it's free. Short, good, and free. Can't get any better adjectives in there if you're curious about the game.

Are there multiple endings in this game? If so,can somebody post the detailed walkthrough cos I don't want to have to keep repeating the same scenes over and over to find all of them.

There's a total of 6 endings? 2 good, 1 neutral, and 3 bad. Those are the ones I have found from replaying the choices I got anyway.

Renpy comes with a skip function which should be left control key by default. Which should fast skip all text you have already seen if you were doing a second or a third playthrough. Its not a overly complex visual novel to really need a guide for the different endings.
