Reviews about the game
Awesome game, I didn't expect to like it this much, but the art style, the songs and the story all won me over. I was intrigued from start to finish. Can't recommend it enough to anyone who likes musicals and story rich games. A single playthrough takes around 8-9 hours, but there are 3 main variations of the songs, so you'll have to play it more than once to hear them all. Played it on the Steam Deck as well and worked great, only crashed once when I was trying to skip every possible dialogue on the second playthrough.
An incredible musical experience! Game breaking bugs have to be mentioned at the beginning, but this does not detract from this masterpiece and was fixed promptly. Incredibly good VA and story, I love the style and music so much.
This is such an amazing, emotional, beautiful storytelling game. It's like your normal dialog choice games, except that instead of only changing the dialog you change the songs. The story is so rich and every character feels very unique. I really can't praise it enough.
It literally combines everything I love. Musical + greek mythology + detective!!! + modern!AU + queer + awesome designs + good jokes + I don't trust anyone but that one guy who looks damn untrustworthy from the very start that I fell in love with immediately It's amazing. I would give it double like if I could.
The writing is just Ok. It's coherent which sets it a good measure above the majority of "pick option for cutscene" games out there; however, it's not good enough to compare to the better echelon of visual novels or actually good western story-related games. The art and animation are what they are - a stringed together slideshow of stills. As for the music in the musical.... Well, I liked it, and it worked for me. But I don't think I'm that cultured to make anymore of a judgment of it. Since I won't be playing it multiple times through, I do not think I'll be able to make comments on the intersection of different musical styles (which is a shame since I really want to try out the headstrong red trait and find out if it's more of a punk rock style as suggested.) Then why exactly am I recommending this game if all of its parts are at best just OK? It would be because the sum of these elements are brought together by an artistic vision that is carried out to completion. It may not be a revolutionary artistic vision - the commentary on fate through the linearity of the medium is nothing new and then throw in a dash of bringing about change to an outdated old system. Yet, it is sincere in the story it tells. For the characters that do appear, a level of care and empathy is always given to their character writing. Even if certain characters feel under-utilized (such as Eros and Orpheus, the latter of whom I really enjoyed and found his appearance a bit too short unfortunately speaking), they are never intentionally slighted or treated as simple tools. Even the "politically correct" elements (the game includes transgender characters and characters that fall out of binary norm and quite diverse representations), but for the game, the elements of modern society are not thrown in to cynically appeal to a demographic or to simply virtue signal as substitute for its quality. They clearly come from a sincere place that falls in line with those values. I can always respect an artistic vision that is seen through and completed.
lovely and very original. A must play, just to experience something completely unique.
