I'm walking into this coming off of Katawa Shoujo (another game created from RenPy) which was awesome and very well written. I've got some expectations for this title so I'm anxious to see how it lives up to them.

I'm not going to have a chance to get into it tonight but I generally get excited by RenPy projects. That non-stop thing is what I went though with KS except it lasted about a month simply because it was THAT deep and THAT good. I'm hoping RA does that for me too.

KS was also my first step into the genre, but sadly I found that most of other games can't live up to it's level. As for RA - the narrative is quite good as far as I see it, but technically the game lacks a bit (e.g. proper gamepad controls - the genre is console native so most ppl will expect to play with a gamepad without touching the mouse+keyboard). The drawing style will also not necesarilly please everyone, but that's a subjective matter. I'll probably write a short review when I finish RA.

Anyway, I can't honestly say that this is as good as KS, but RA is nice either way.

It would have been nice if you could have played as a guy with female co-workers or maybe a mix of both lol, would have added more depth and branching to the story line but yeah it could have caused a lot of rewriting of the script. its a good game but choosing the main char's gender would be great feature if possible. just my opinion though. as far as the game goes the storyline for lily is great. the game, music and art are all amazing. good job.

This is so far looking like a gorgeous game - if only I could figure out how to get the sound to work... >_<

You can change the in-game music/SFX volumes in the preferences by clicking and dragging the "bars" to the right. The bars being the row of circles--a few people have said the guiding arrows look like scrollbars, sorry about that! Beyond that, I'm afraid I'm not sure what the problem is. D:

Nah, I have the sound turned up in the game - I think it's a problem on my end. Possibly pulse audio issues? I'll just have to fiddle with it a bit more. Thanks for replying though! ^w^

Well-executed and creative subversion of the otome vn genre. A must read if you're looking for something that breaks the mold.

In my opinion the story is too much of a (boring) soap opera (even the post prologue part of it). Though the game's name already suggests, it's all about love, it could have been less borrowing the cliche. Furthermore there are too little real choices, so playing this game is all about reading and tapping your space key to get on reading, which becomes quite annoying over time. Due to this, replaying the prologue part by taking other choices, wasn't as much fun as hoped for, because you have to…
