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.

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!

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.
