This game seems to be tailored to young players, but it is a nice, interactive novel type game. I really enjoyed the story and the ability to listen to the game in Japanese or English, with several subtitle options. It is a short game for older players, but even then, I took my time trying to unlock all the pika prompts and it took me ~30hrs. It's a good length for those of us that are really busy.
Overall it was a great game! I rellt enjoyed the story and the graphics. However for the time I spent playing it, it feels like a waste of money. I spent $40 and tax on it, and was able to complete it in two days. Way to high priced for a game so short. To add on, there’s no post-game, so after you complete it, you can’t do anything else. Seems to expenisve for the amount of game-play!
