Guilty ~The SiN~ Review

Title: Guilty ~The SiN~ (罪囚-The SiN-)
Alias: Zaishuu -The SiN-
Release date: 2003-09-26 (2011-03-14 in English)
Developer: Tactics
English publisher: MangaGamer

Ah, Zaishuu -The SiN-, a visual novel from Tactics that promised to take us to the darker side of an eroge world. Considering that I'm a fan of everything that is horror, fantasy or sci-fi, I was more than eager to get my hands onto it, expecting to experience another "Bible Black". The title left me with very mixed feelings, but I suppose that is the point of this review. So, let's proceed by diving straight into the underworld of Akatsuki City.


Sugar's Delight Review

Title: Sugar's Delight
Release date: 2011-12-03
Developer: Neko-Soft

The cake is not a lie!

It's an OELVN. It's a nukige. It's yuri. If you wonder how those components can blend together, even though they never did before, read on.


Rise & Fall Review

Title: Rise & Fall
Release date: 2011-11-05 (Chapter 1)
Developer: POPloids
Publisher: POPloids

For a change let's review an OELVN here or at least the first chapter of one, as "Rise & Fall" is an ongoing project and only the first chapter of this kinetic novel has been released. By creators' own admission the game has been highly influenced by "07th Expansion" and the game bears an undeniable similarity to Umineko series. At the same time it a sort of fan-fiction, as the majority of the characters are taken from UTAU (not that I know or care what that is; something to do with vocaloids). Not knowing a lick about UTAU didn't hinder my experience with the game in the least.
