This is a fun and cute game. The character models, while low poly, are well textured and animated nicely. The surroundings, by comparison, are a bit repetitive, and textures are a bit dull and muddy. Each zone is also small (but a lack of load time makes transitions pretty smooth.)

The English translations seem well done, but a bit robotic and lacking personality at points (extremely formal language tends to be used as a rule, and occasional exceptions seem a little out of place.)

I've primarily been playing with a XBox360 Controller for Windows, and the camera controls are a bit wonky on it: vertical control is flawless, but horizontal control for the camera is unresponsive, so I am forced to use the shoulder buttons, which creates a bit of a learning curve while trying to navigate. The camera could have been given an auto-follow feature, which really would have helped this game out. I'm considering switching back to the tried and true keyboard+mouse combination that is always dependable.

Where this game really shines is during the underwater areas, which is really the focus of the game, anyway. Swimming controls well, but using the camera to dive and swim to the surface takes a little while to get used to.

The price of the game is fair, especially for exploratory nature of it. Its also an excellent effort by the designers, and I look forward to their other games.

Story is the amazing point in this game, you will find that it somehow references a lot of real world problems.

A lot of songs are great, if only it can open it in music mode.

Characters are great even without voice actors I still like a lot of them.

Art is another good point in this game, I really like the backgrounds of this game, it's just so beautiful.

Only thing in this game is a bug in cg mode and music mode and some odd translation.

Really can't wait for second episode.

This package of BGMs are just as they advertised: It's perfect for games that are based around 'love simulations'. They also provided a handy track list with the emotion the tracks are trying to provoke, just in case you get stuck on what you should use each track for. The track list is in Japanese, but you only need to have some knowledge to understand what it's saying, and I think Google translate should help, if you don't speak Japanese at all.

This pack is amazing, and I love it!

I am working on a visual novel, and was looking for royalty and copyright free music to use in it. I also bought another pack, vol. 5, the same time I bought this pack. Vol. 5 had many variations to this pack, but this pack, on its own, is pretty amazing. I really love the different kinds of sounds and feel the music has to it, and will be using many of the tracks for my novel. It's great! I highly recommend.

I bought this pack for the visual novel that I am working on with a friend, and this is just what I needed! I used up some remaining points that I had lying around, but I would have paid for it anyways. For the price, you get a LOT of music, and a lot of variation of music. It's mostly very RPG, battle like music, but it works for the game that I will be working on, so that's great, too.

I also recommend the others in this series. They're also very good.

Copyright-free BGM FULL Collection Vol.1

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.

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.
