"A short but intriguing sci-fi mystery. The story is explained through ship logs so...I hope you love to read!"

Anmeldelser

“Analogue is a sit-up-and-take-notice achievement in storytelling, in interface, in research, in mechanics and in moral ambiguity.”
Alec Meer, Rock Paper Shotgun
“It was like watching a horror movie, knowing what was about to happen and curious only how awful the director’s willing to get. Love is not gratuitous but doesn’t disappoint – the fate of the Mugunghwa, and the event that precipitated it, is as valid as it is appalling.”
Matt Sakey, Tap-Repeatedly

NETOP OPDATERET!

Now includes the Science and Tradition DLC

Includes two new costumes for the cosplaying AI *Hyun-ae: a scientist's lab coat, and the traditional hanbok that the Pale Bride wore.

Analogue: A Hate Story is a wonderful exercise in interactive storytelling. The world is rich, the characters are memorable, and the plot is great. This one is certainly worth a buy.

Text-based, command-prompt-driven investigation into the disappearance of a long lost earth colony ship.

Surprisingly engaging for what is essentially a look into gender disparity within an era of Korean society. And an opportunity to dress up an artifical woman in various cosplays.

Also contains a very intense dos-based puzzle segment!

I found this to be a very immersive game, and it made me feel feelings.

I kept waiting for something interesting to happen, believing that the concept had legs, but it was just Chuck Testa.

10/10 for Chuck Testa fooling me into thinking this game was alive.

Self-serving garbage made by a homophobic bully that leveraged personal relationships for positive coverage.

Only recommend if you sincerely hate yourself and wish to support a hateful bully.

I've read a few visual novels. But this is a special visual novel, it is not as simple as the others. But first things first.
The most important difference that makes this novel special - "interaction" with the novel. Or gameplay, here as you like (although some players will eat me for using the words "visual novel" and "gameplay" in the same sentence.
Dialogues are few, and all communication is reduced to reading records found on the ship and opened in time. In other words - a short story by 95% consists of reading various diaries, finding interrelations between them, and which is necessary for an understanding of what is it that happened in the game.
And the plot is interesting. We - aerospace engineer, who flew to study the missing ship.
And the plot is interesting. We - aerospace engineer, who flew to study the missing ship. Here the developers have tried and we have a fairly extensive functional interactions with the ship itself and existing records - work with artificial intelligence ship, switching various triggers of very interesting work with the functions and much more.
And the end - this is the culmination of all that we, as an aerospace engineer, can do.
However, despite an interesting story, I would recommend this visual novel only to those who already have an extensive view of the games of this genre. There's a lot of information, especially about the relationship between the members of the ship, and it is difficult to handle with it. For a beginner.

We now turn to a more subjective facts.

Scenario: 8/10
VERY cool story that has serious connotations relating to our reality with you. Spoils a great script, only one thing - the same name and very strained description. I was confused in the names and had to read descriptions many, many, MANY times.

Characters: 10/10
I fell in love with them. Really liked these characters. About protagonist knows nothing, but it is only does that get used to the role. Characters of girls worked out perfectly, and their story is very interesting and touching.

Graphics: 7/10
Lovely character sprites, the interface "operating system" and... That's all. There's nothing else here, the background is almost always the same.

Sound: 6/10
Honestly - could have been better. But thanks to the fact that the sound is not irritating and does not distract from reading the notes. There is no voice acting.

And a little notice: there is no erotic component in here :)

So, this novel is pretty good, I can honestly recomend it for experienced players. If you are a beginner - of course, you can try, but you'v been warned above.

Good luck, and have fun!

Analogue: A Hate Story is a visual novel in which you try to uncover what happened to a lost spaceship and more importantly, it's crew. The story is presented via numerous documents and two A.I.s who also serve as pursuable love interests, all the while trying to influence the player's decisions. The experience is quite short-lived, which feels weird, considering that the story is clearly trying to emotionally influence you and centers around some fairly dark themes. More often than not though, these are presented in a pretty hamfisted way and the addition of extremely stylized characters makes for quite a mixed-bag overall.

Apart from an input-based sequence I encountered right at the end, there really is not any gameplay to speak of. The soundtrack served it's purpose as background music for you to read notes too but that's it. And finally, there are several different endings and achivements to obtain.

Most of this should not be news to any Visual Novel aficionado out there but rather maybe serve as a warning to anyone looking for a different experience. So for anyone interested in a decent enough VN, I would recommend getting this game on sale because even considering possible replayability-incentives, it's a very short-lived tale. Overall though, I will not recommend this game to a general audience which is most likely looking for more game and less novel.

Maybe the Metacritic rating is the real Hate Story here. Zing.

Seriously, I enjoyed this (and the sequel) personally and don't get the low score, but I know these are not for everyone. Subject material gets pretty dark You'll probalby like it if you're into most visual novels or have played any of the author's other games. She has some available free on here site if you're not sure.

I will start off by saying that I am a great lover of Visual Novels and games of the sort.

I will admit that coming into Analogue: A Hate Story, I was fairly skeptical and I wasn't sure what to make of it. The only real negative was that I found the game did not make it very easy to get into and I felt like the user interface was a little bit unclear in sections. A factor that I have no doubt would initially put people off.

Little did I know that later on I would come to the conclusion that this game is worth every second I invested into it. The story is incredible once you have managed to piece things together and after some time you begin to learn new things and discover new secrets. The level of depth and thought that has gone into the creation of this game is incredible and I would reccommend everybody to play it. There are some fun little additionals which are added into the game through the use of the command centre, which is a nice little addition which I haven't seen implemented in too many others.

At £6.99 it is incredibly reasonable for a visual novel and there isn't really a good excuse not to buy it.

Analogue: a Hate Story certainly isn't billed as a feminist game. It's creator, Christine Love, cheekily describes it as being more about transhumanism, traditional marriage, loneliness, and cosplay. Maybe that's true. All I can say is that as a man, the game struck me as unflinchingly feminist. Now, I don't mean that in a confrontational, all-men-are-♥♥♥♥♥♥-pigs straw feminist sort of way. Hell, maybe feminism is not even the right word for it, maybe it's just a game about female experiences presented matter-of-factly. Ladies, this may seem obvious to you. But to us males, this is a wholly unsettling and unexpected revelation.

The story as outlined is simple and humble enough. You, a private detective (in space!), travel to a recently discovered wreck of a space ship, which had been previously lost for thousands of years. This ship once held an entire nation of people as it traveled to a distant planet. Somewhere along the way, the ship's inhabitants died out completely. It's up to you to sift through the ship's computer data (with the help of artificial intelligence friends) to discover the fate of the lost nation.

If you're like me, that story sounds fairly pedestrian so far, right? But the ship's recovered computer logs tell a much different, much more personal story.

Over thousands of years, this isolated society has regressed in both education and culture to the whereabouts of 15th century Korea. Despite living on an impressive space-faring vessel, and being assisted by futuristic artificial intelligences, its inhabitants are mostly simple farm folk who know little of the ship, or the universe, around them. And just like in 15th century Korea, conditions for women are horrifyingly bad.

The AIs ask you personal questions throughout the game, such as who you are, where you're from, and whether or not you've visited Pyonyang. You know, getting-to-know-you stuff. The first time I played through, I was asked if I was a male or female, and I answered honestly. I played through the game, and that normally would have been the end of it. However, there's a Steam achievement for playing through a particular ending as both a male and a female, so I played the same ending again. As a female, the writing changes. In this new scene, it was all I could do to not reach through the computer monitor and slap that AI around until the smug falls out.

This AI's dialogue is fairly standard and neutral as a male, while as a female, the AI's dialogue is condescending and dismissive of everything you say. As a male, this concept that I could be disregarded so easily was a bit shocking.

Is Analogue a FUN game? By no means. In fact, there's a race-against-the-clock mission (in a visual novel!) that really should have been heavily altered. But its story is solid, and compelling enough to make you overlook its flaws. Even weeks later, the story stuck with me, haunting me, making me question every interaction I've ever had with women over the course of my life.

TL;DR - Do you like reading? Play this game. It's important.

An interesting and heartbreaking interactive fiction game. Explores some pretty deep themes - sexism, being queer - in a sci-fi colony ship. Well done.

One of the few visual novels that let you ♥♥♥♥ around with a space ship's controls, investigate the disapearence of said ship's crewmembers, and perhaps most importantly of all: allow you to dress up a kawaii AI :3
10/10 One of the best Visual Novels on steam ^^
