Wow, I really love this game! My first play-through took about 8 hours, and many others after that took only a few hours since I skipped over many of the already-read texts, and reloaded previous save files where I thought all I had to do was a make a few changes in my choices to get a different ending, and it worked on quite a few occasions.

Where the game really shines is in the personalities of each of the characters. Each person is quite distinct, and with the inclusion of voices, whether it be in Japanese or in English, it only further helps to set each character apart from one another. It is a bit disappointing, though, that there is generally only one in-game stance for each of the characters when you are around them. However, they do have a myriad of different facial expressions, as well as eyes that actually blink, which I must say is pretty cool! My favorite character is without a doubt Mikoto! She’s the childhood friend of Souta. With her bright smile and cheerful disposition, I knew that she was someone that I would grow to really care for in the game, and I did, very much so! I was easily engrossed with her storyline the most. I was glad, too, that ZeroZigen gave her 2 good endings (and 2 bad ones!). In fact, she is the only one with more than 1 kind of ending. I also really liked Honoka’s and Himeno’s as well, but the other characters have pretty good storylines as well.

The music for the game is simply fantastic! Each musical piece, I thought, did an excellent job in complementing the mood and atmosphere of each scene. In fact, the sound test boasts a whopping 90 tracks! For a doujin game, that’s simply amazing, especially since many of them, in my opinion, are very good, too!

Final Score: 9/10 - The "Dummy" texts (non-translated texts), grammatical errors and random in-game errors are why I knocked it down a whole point.

Fans of Spice and Wolf will be right at home with Isuna Hasekura's new series world end economica.

The translation is fairly good, and the ability to play the game in japanese is a plus as well. I love Spice and Wolf and this is a great novel to fill the time inbetween yen presses releases of the novels. the story is interesting, the characters are good, the plot elements and world are interesting. the only bad thing I could say about it is that it could use more art at times.

This game has a great engaging story. Normally i don't view a visual novel in one setting, but this time i did. I can't wait for the next chapter to be translated.

The story has some interesting twist and turns and while it may seem a mere story about a boy wanting to climb in society it also has some deeper themes. Corruption, politics, finance and ethics.

The only negative thing i have to say is that the story leave wanting for the next chapter.

If you haven't already picked up this game and you are a fan of underwater theme works, please do grab this item! The game can get confusing at times. By this I mean you get stuck not knowing what to do, however once you find out you usually are able to proceed after solving challenging puzzles. Again the team over at foxeye did an excellent job. One should definitely add this game to your underwater collection.

I bought the hospital set, so I also decided to grab this as well for a few filler scenes that I have.

Overall, I like them a little bit more than the hospital series, just because they seem a little bit cleaner, and with better line quality. However, some parts of the backgrounds, such as the curtains in the bedroom stand, stand out to me as slightly unfinished.

Also, you can probably tell from the pictures that the lighting is a little too bright in some backgrounds. Also, the saturation may be a little too high in a few of the scenes.

However, they are still very nice, but have a few rough spots, so I just gave it a 4 out of 5.

Also, I should mention that the scenes are somewhat more painterly compared to some of the other backgrounds that I've downloaded, so the style remains consistent across products.

This set has 6 unique renders. I also bought the other hospital set to make a more complete hospital scene. Most of the renders have morning, day, and night renders. However, the food tray render only has one (probably morning). There are also renders of the roof, break room, stairwell going up, waiting area, and a stairwell (downward perspective).

The style and quality vary slightly throughout, but most people probably wouldn't really notice.

I bought this package for a game that I'm working on about a woman who has a daughter with selective mutism.

It has 7 unique backgrounds with morning, day, and night renders.

1) looking down hospital stairs
2) hospital break/park/outside area
3) from hospital bed looking out window
4) from hospital bed looking at the entry door
5) looking down a hallway
6) from hospital bed looking at ceiling
7) view of different hospital beds from entrance

The quality varies between backgrounds. They almost look like a combination of 3D, photo manipulation, and 2D painting, and filters.

The lighting is a little off in some scenes, and some of the paint strokes are very painterly, leaving some scenes looking somewhat unfinished in some parts, but it's really more of the style I think.

Anyway, for the price it's still a deal.

You get two scenarios, and they're basically both very similar in situation. The only difference is the characters. The first is a nice (but apparently a bit clumsy) guy who is trying his best to be more dependable. The second guy has a slight mean streak and (according to him) a mean personality.

The sound quality for both was very good, especially the use of sound effects. I feel like the acting starts off a bit shaky in each situation. But as you get further into the situation, it smooths out. In general, I think they did a good job. And for the price, I think it's worth a try.

Rosenkreuzstilette is a mega m*n clone game where Spiritia the protagonist of the game must stop her friends and the evil Graf Michael Sepperin in order to save the holy empire and the orthodox church. while the classic mega m*n franchise is the main imspiration behind the game other games like the mega m*n x and castl*vania franchises are used as inspiration as well like in enemy designs and locals. the graphics of the game is very good as it gives the various locals some pretty visuals and the various stages are animated as well. the character sprites are good as far as small chibi sprites go. the music in the game is fully of quality and they all fit nicely in the game. my favorite music track in the game is Luste Teuber's stage music, it is just awesome. the sound in the game as in the various sound effects and voice work is also good and I like that the characters says a line before the match begins and let out hurt noices when damaged, kind of like in mega m*n x4. the game controls well as it should so the player does not have to worry about any mishaps due to bad controls. the gameplay is standard mega m*n fun so if you played any of the nes mega m*n titles or the 9th and 10th version then you'll be right at home. the challenge level of the game is that it can get hard in certain places in the game with Freudia and Trauare being the two tough bosses out of the eight initial bosses before tracking through the last half of the game. also some of the stages will have some surprises. when you beat the game get a code that lets you play the game as Grolla who has to depend on up close which makes the game harder and she takes more damage from attacks than Spiritia. two other notes the game does not let you revisit areas beaten and the game uses a password system which means weapons obtained and bosses defeated will be saved but cross tanks and lives collected will not be saved. overall the game is an instant buy if you like mega m*n style games.

This is a 20 images + 6 Wallpaper CG Collection.
This collection mostly focus on breast (all size but mostly big), and their cleavage, and also on panties ^^
You'll see a differeng girls, in different cosplay (Maid, Bunny Girl, Nurse, Kimono, China dess, Nekomimi etc...). There isn't anything adult, just plain and simple sexy and cute.
All the images come in jpg, but also in Bmp with a high resolution.

The art is really good. Everything is well drawn and detailed with very nice colors.

Overall, a very good CG Collection with really good content.
Even if it's a G-rated, it's sexy enough!
