It definitely rises beyond that. An entire chapter based on Shadow over Innsmouth, and The Dunwich Horror is extremely important to the main plot of the game.

Just finished Kirika's route from Kami-sama no You na, didn't expect this to turn into a black mirror episode halfway through, shit was pretty intense.
Is there a recommended route order if I plan on doing all routes? Is it correct to assume that I should first do the "main" heroine (i.e. Rana) and then the "side" heroine (Sophia) routes for minimal spoilers?
>>
>>36539526
Based on what I have seen the heroines routes have some unexpected contents compared to the more "down to earth" common route. I would say leave Tsukuyomi last because her route has the bigger risks and rewards (as expected of the titular heroine). For the sisters, do Rana first and Sophia later.

I liked the sakutoki trial
>>
>>36547693
Yeah, it was great, makes me really excited for the full game. Whenever they talked about art in Sakura no Uta, it never actually felt like they were talking about art, but rather some mystic religious tool that would allow them to come to terms with their own existence. The Toki trial felt like it focused much more on the process of creating art, so I hope the full game continues to take that approach.
>>
>>36547870
>some mystic religious tool that would allow them to come to terms with their own existence
That's exactly what I like about sakuuta, but if sakutoki focus a bit more on the process of creating art I wouldn't complain.

Does the Tsui no Sora remake have a different story than Subahibi or is it just a rehash with Ayana replaced by Sachikong? If so I might as well drop it for a year or two before I get too invested since I just beat subahibi like two months ago.
>>
>>36549347
The major plot beats (two people commit suicide, school starts going crazy over what they believe to be the coming apocalypse, cultists kill themselves at the end) are the same across TnS, TnSRemake, and Subahibi, but there are some major differences that make TnSRemake at least a somewhat interesting read even if you've gone over the major plot beats multiple time, in particular, an entirely new route that's about 5 hours long, a Mamiya route with a pretty fresh but not very substantial latter third, and revamped endings from the original TnS. If all you've played is Subahibi, then this is going to be a very fresh experience regardless of the fact that you more or less know how the story ends, particularly because Tsui no Sora is pretty different from Subahibi in terms of style and atmosphere. The endings, in particular, are rather chilling after "lol live happily" in Subahibi.

>>36546576
He also said he really enjoyed butterfly seeker lmao

endings were actually about exactly the same as original ones just with some addition of Spinoza instead of Niche, but the main point still didn't change
>>
>>36549648
You're completely right, "revamped" was not the correct word in this case. There is a small bit of rewriting, though, like the weird shit about memory at the start of Numinose II.
>>
>>36549676
i think that also was influenced by Spinoza's idea that memories is just the mind's ability to generate ideas according to the order of images, and that memorizing is just a connection between ideas and thus not actually a conscious process (or something like this)

Before I knew he's using MTL, I posted a comment on his site about this too - his obviously wrong translation of 陵辱 (I thought he's simply choosing the wrong word when looking in a dictionary) and he replied with the same weirdo reasoning. Makes me think he has paranoia or something.

And overall he seems similar to that Patreon scammer who used MTL to translate PC98 games. Probably thinks himself a savior of long lost eroge or something - "someone has to do it, even if the result is shit".

Even worse are people who support this kind of stuff though. He's a shitter, they're shit-eaters.

You answered your own question. Moege don’t have complicated stories and they’re usually trope heavy. If you give someone with poor reading comprehension a story with tropes they’re not familiar with then it becomes harder for them to follow.

I wanna add it’s not like they don’t understand the basics of a story, more like they get confused by too many unfamiliar elements or plot points because their reading comprehension is low, either due to them being ESL or they’re native and a dumbass.

This entire game was just a massive dissapointment. Shitty gameplay, dull main story without any of the heroines since everyone was optional, character events being finished before even getting halfway into the game, not a single trio scene and on top of that it was a buggy mess. Hopefully their upcoming fantasy game will be better since fantasy is my favourite setting for Astronauts games.

That's misleading. There's 'routes', but they just change certain scenes depending on which girls you pick, whereas the overall plot of the game stays the same.

Haven't played that one since I usually stick with the games from their Sirius brand. If the gameplay is anything like the Astronauts Sirius card game( https://vndb.org/v16925), then you can expect a flawed card game where most of the gameplay is wasted on fighting mobs that pose zero challenge but take ages to beat, and card building that isn't worth to get into because switching decks requires so much grinding that you are better of using the same basic deck the entire game until postgame rolls around and you get locked because of the difficulty spike. I have no idea if the game you posted is designed in another way so take it with a grain of salt.

But if you look at jast discord, for example, people mostly tends to like muramasa and mostly asks about some really vague plot points.
Score on vndb doing well, slightly dropped from 8.90 to 8.80 right after en release, but stabilized around 8.83 right now.

I’m not talking about liking Muramasa. I don’t care if people like or don’t like it. I’m talking about ability to correctly follow what’s going on in the plot and themes.

>Denpa is just a convenient way to make characters do insane shit because they're not human anymore
I like denpa specifically for that possession element. In moderation I don’t get tired of that kind of story because there’s smth inherently appealing to me about a regular setting breaking down into madness.
The appeal is different from more realistic stories about fucked up shit (which usually veers more into mystery/crime stuff than the supernatural) but I like that too. Erewhon and Yume Miru Kusuri are kind of like that but they sometimes dip into supernatural-lite territory. The upcoming Clockup title Ori looks like it could be more in line with what you’re saying though.

I finished rewatching the sopranos and it dawned on me there's not really any good mafia themed VNs. There was Gekkou no Carnevale but it literally would put me to sleep.

Read it and find out for yourself if you're so inclined. It's got a great soundtrack, really good productions and has an amazing atmosphere.

I was reading the Sakura no Toki fanbook and it looks like scaji's plan was to give the release date when they put out the trial and updated the site but I guess they got delayed again lel. On the other hand though it may be coming out sooner than we think.

He said this though which is pretty based. The end of VI made it seem like the game was going to have a billion routes, but if we're only going to be banging the MILFs then I'm down with it.

What's your argument for playing Nanase's route first?

Personally I'd go Hinami ( most different from Common, so it serves as a good break ) -> Nanase (similar to common, main """"twist"""" has more weight to it if you play a route in between since otherwise there isn't enough time between the foreshadowing of common vs the reveal in her route) -> Misaki (Craziest route, other routes don't live up to it)

>What's your argument for playing Nanase's route first?
Because the game itself labels the routes with the recommended reading order, and the routes are clearly meant to be read in the order the game recommends?
>>
>>36579449
I played Hinami first and regretted it, Nanase is obviously meant to go first (the order listed in the game goes that way).
The main reason is that Hinami's route alludes to the incident in Nanase's route. But it sums up the incident very casually in one line, despite the plot placing a lot of importance on it.
>>
>>36579335
Nothing vague as fuck. It just won't have that structure where routes diverge based on the girl MC chooses from his harem.
>>
>>36579462
Did you also follow the Nukitashi 2 route order?

>>36579465
Hinami's route also casually reveals that shishou is a villian , which affects Misaki's route a lot, but i don't see anyone recommending to play Misaki before Hinami. The route order shown in game is completely arbitrary aside from ending on Fumino, which is enforced by the game itself.

I played Nanase first and the "twist" felt underwhelming because there isn't a lot of time between the explanation of Jun's past in Common, and the first flashback sequence in Nanase's route which spells out the entire twist . Playing a route inbetween would, at least for me, increase the impact of the reveal and improve the route .
>>
>>36579596
>It just won't have that structure where routes diverge based on the girl MC chooses from his harem.
And you know that doesn't deny that it still might have heroines and h-scenes. If that is only criteria then Musicus also doesn't have typical bishoujoge structure, lol

Are you joking? That's not a reveal at all, it's obvious as hell.
I definitely think Hinami goes better after Nanase, which feels like more of an introductory route. Not just for the one reason I specified above, that one just stuck out.
For example, in the Nanase route they focus more on the gadget development, which is just used without explanation in the Hinami route.
The devs' order is correct.

I really hope he will work on Mahoyo part 2-3 after he is done with Far Side, but FGO makes me worried.

Anyone else think that this line from Zypressen was problematic? If lesbianism is a form of self-projection doesn't that imply it's a bit narcissistic?

Pic related is the scripter of Mahoyo on his blog at release day of the game or some shit
People think he actually left the company at some point because Tsukihime took so long to come out and he was never intended to be on that team, so he just left because he had absolutely nothing to do. Things supporting this is that he has 0 staff credits after mahoyo and he was also missing from stuff like the F/SN anniversary website where all the TM devs post random messages. He also deleted his website.

Speaking of Gore Screaming Show, I have wondered if Black Cyc games are worth playing for the story even if I have no interest in the sexual content. I have always heard great things about Extravaganza in particular, but the sample CGs are not my thing at all, and EGS has it listed as a nukige, so I never tried it out.
>>

Extravaganza is really good. It's nukige but with good plot
>>
>hey, why not throw in some drama, psychological trauma and backstory rape into this genderbent comedy? I'm sure that's exactly what the reader wants!
>>
>>36591730
wow that sounds great, what VN?

You may get a kick out of it, but it's the absolute worst implementation of background drama I've ever seen as it adds absolute nothing to the story or characters, and is basically ignored right after it's brought up. Well, the whole novel turns to shit at this point, anyway.

Looking good but I hope this 9 imouto appearances to choose from doesn't mean it has few CGs with tons of variations.

Mindead blood is a fun game porn aside too.

Ayakashi.

So is gore screaming show some kind of meme or actually good.
>>
>>36591632
The writing isn’t infallible but it’s ranges from “interesting” to solid. I would go in with low expectations. Gore Screaming Show is nice if you like horror movies especially western ones because there are a decent amount of throwbacks to them. It also has the least amount of porn among their games.
Mindead Blood is fun but there’s a lot of porn. Their other games like Extravaganza, Sadistic Blood and Yami no Koe are heavy on the porn but the execution is slightly different from other nukige and there is “a bit” of plot. It is definitely not the focus however.
If you like darker and sometimes campy themes and are fine with a lot of sexual content then I would recommend them.

No clue but I fucking love Denkare (band that did the opening) so it's been on my backlog for ages.
>>
>>36591632
I really like Black Cyc games because the amount of eroge that actually utilize their h-scenes to fuel the plot is surprisingly low. Dead End Aegis was great too.
>>
>>36595009
It's a good read and it's actually less edgy than the name suggests.
>>
What VNs have the best prose outside of the usual contenders (Romeo, Mareni, Jackson, etc.)?
>>
>>36595481
Urobuchi is great.
>>
When I think of Gore Screaming Show I mostly remember Kiika's bad ending where the protagonist is forced to watch her get tortured and killed which breaks him and then he spends his life hunting Yuka
That's pretty great as a horror scene and I normally don't like depressing stories. The rest of the game is still pretty good but this ending really sticks out for me.
