I have bought collections 2, 4, and 5 from Kannazuki, I think, and this collection is just as good as the others.

There are 30 tracks, so to pay about a $1.00 per track is really a deal. They are better quality than a lot of custom soundtracks that I have heard for import games.

The trial represents the product well, so download that first if you have any reservations. I went through and renamed the songs and if I had to make a word cloud to describe the collection, I would say, "Piano, classical music, daily life, resolution, happy, sad, ballroom dancing, samurai, anime, upbeat".

There are also a few foreign sounding tracks. One sounds Middle Eastern and the other sounds Irish. There are no horror tracks in this collection which was a bummer, but most people probably don't need those like me.

I have to admit that watching an alpaca talk to you in human clothes with a cartoon voice is amusing, though I did mute Yukari, the alpaca, after about thirty minutes or so.

The visual novel has two or three different points where you can make a decision to change the story. It has a gallery at the end to let you know whether you've gotten all of the CGs.

This was translated by the doujin, so the translation is difficult to understand at times, so beware the warning on the product's page. Ultimately, it's light and fluffy, so if you like games like that, it may be of interest to you.

The ending that I got actually left me wondering what really happened, but I think I know...

The backgrounds included in the pack are all of very high quality with great amount of details. This is indeed the work of professional background artists. I am completely satisfied with this purchase and will be purchasing more backgrounds from this circle in case any needs arise. My only suggestion is that, maybe the circle could recompile a big pack for purchases in bulk to allow buyers to get some discount for buying all of them.

Also, every background has different varieties (day, night, sunset, sundown) and are available in three different resolutions as well. This is indeed the work of professional background artists.

This is a set of copyright free sound FX that you can use in your own games. Sounds covered include helicopter, bells and sirens, clocks, doors opening and closing etc.

If you are interested in producing your own game, either using a scripted tool or from scratch, then these could be very useful to you and save some time.

All FX are in wav format and range from 1-15 seconds in duration. Some of them come in a variety of durations for use.

The walls actually have a lot more detail than what appears in the preview. I thought you may be able to treat it as a 3D environment, but you will have to fade in and out if you use it for navigation, as each single step was not depicted. You could make a decent maze out of it. Both "new" and "destroyed" backgrounds are made available, so that may help to advance the story of the game that you may be making.

So, it's kind of hard to know what you're getting from the sample art.

A lot of Murakumo's work is similar where the detail is somewhat inconsistent. Although most of the work is complete, small parts of it look unfinished, or maybe a little smudged. It's hard to explain, but you'll notice if you look at the furniture or the airplane propeller.

It's good art. The city scene is a little disorienting, but it's still pretty cool. The airship is marvelous, but you should know that there are characters painted into the cockpit.

Other than a few jagged edges here and there, it would serve most indie game makers well.

It's a decent set if you need something for a science lab. It has a creepy underground feeling to it because it is all in unnatural light. The detail is actually pretty good. There's a ton of stuff in the scenes, and I don't really know what a lot of it is because I'm not that much of a science person. The style is consistent among Murakumo's other work. It's painterly, yet similar enough to other typical backgrounds that you could probably mix and match without people noticing.

I must say that Supplement Time certainly hasn't lost their touch making visual novels when it came to this one. I've played the previous two (Which I both enjoyed a lot) and was looking forward to this one. Unfortunately this is not a sequel like the previous review said, you play a completely different character from the first two novels. There's not even the slightest mention of him anywhere. It's a great story, there's no denying that. But if you were hoping for a continuation of the first two games then you will be disappointed. I'd like to consider this more of an alternate universe to that of the first two novels (The Visual Novel Database doesn't even link them as sequels and prequels) Still enough of me ranting, even though this is not a sequel it's definitely worth a play!
