“ An underappreciated gem! A very nice visual novel, with first class background, CGs, character sprite work, music - I have literally no complaints. It was really nice to see a story deviate from the romantic norms of the VN genre and try something a bit different - I'd consider this more a story of personal recovery and self identity, with the murder mystery elements there primarily for tone.

A spectacular, very welcome surprise. I'd love to see more! ”
