Now save menus are nothing new to dating sims, but having instantaneous saves with 200 slots available is a big and very necessary improvement once again inspired by RPGs.

This is where the presence of the Normal Boots cast can be felt most outside of the voice acting (one half of Illus Seed, Danielle Hargrave, also happens to be married to Peanut Butter Gamer).

This is character piece through and though and while there are interesting set pieces it’s Hillstock’s characters that bring them to life and make the player care. I feel that Hillstock sometimes forgot that she was writing for a game so when the narrative came up to a choice, there wouldn’t be enough warning and I’d get stuck in a choice, unable to go a step back and create a save state so I could make a different choice later. It’s almost directly caused by this and while the games does allow you to save at decisions using the right click nothing indicates that you can do this making return play-throughs more arduous than they need to be.
It’s problems, while irritating, pale when compared to the well told stories, the adorable characters, the great humour and the love for both dating sims and the gaming community in general that radiates off this enjoyable game.
