Description: What’s at the heart of human connection? Explore what it’s like to meet someone new and build a relationship in this thoughtful visual novel from Smilegate Entertainment. You are a senior in high school majoring in photography and working part-time at a cafe. Yours is an ordinary life. On a day like any other, you are at your favourite park when all of a sudden you meet a girl, and the whole experience feels like something out of a fairytale. The next day, she shows up at the cafe you work at asking for help with pictures for a design competition. Does she just want help for this competition or could it be the beginning of a special connection?
Review: While it is not quite as simple as I am going to say this is basically a photoshoot simulator with some lovely lady called Yua (there is nothing rude, it is all very tasteful in fact). I will give credit where it is due and the animation, scenery and voice acting are all on point and the whole thing feels neatly polished and a joy to play. The problem is the “joy” doesn’t last much more than a single hour and for the current asking price of £29.99 that is a hard price to swallow. While I do think it is worth a download I will suggest you wait until it is in a sale for at least half its current price point.
