"The story is absolutely interesting, although it might get confusing sometimes. The soundtrack is relaxing and sad. And the artstyle is amazing."

Recensies

“Analogue is een kijk-en-leer-prestatie qua vertelkunst, interface, onderzoek, mechanics en morele dubbelzinnigheid.”
Alec Meer, Rock Paper Shotgun
“Het is als het kijken naar een horrorfilm: je weet wat er gaat gebeuren en je bent nieuwsgierig hoe afschuwelijk de regisseur het gaat maken. Liefde is niet kosteloos, maar het stelt niet teleur - het lot van de Mugunghwa en de gebeurtenis die het versnelde is even gegrond als verschrikkelijk.”
Matt Sakey, Tap-Repeatedly

Onlangs bijgewerkt

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.

Over dit spel

Back in the 25th century, Earth launched a generation ship into deep space, with the goal of establishing the first interstellar colony. It dropped out of contact and disappeared, never reaching its destination. Thousands of years later, it has finally been found.

Uncover the mystery of what happened to the final generation aboard the generation ship Mugunghwa by reading through its dead crew's logs, with the help of a spunky AI sidekick! Two pursuable characters. Five endings. A dark visual novel that further extends the non-linear style of Digital: A Love Story in a mystery featuring transhumanism, traditional marriage, loneliness, and cosplay.

Welcome to the future.

Analogue a Hate story is Cyberdyne Waifu simulator. Replace its killer robot army with long boring shiplogs written by medieval space colonists. Spend hours being attacked by their mundane informational content. The waifu's become yandere by trying to quiz you on what you read.

I am boring and enjoyed it. Comes highly recommended for boring people like me. Your probably boring and should buy it. Its boring.

This is a visual novel that does not overly rely on anime tropes, but instead draws from the darker points of Korean history, places the plot in a distant transhumanist future and uses this seemingly incongruable mishmash as a setting for a social commentary. While the game has been called feminist, I would actually say it goes quite a lot beyond that.
If you are interested in sentient AI's, dark family dramas and human rights issues, you might enjoy this strange little gem.

At first I wasn't 100% convinced I'd recommend this game, its definitely one you're going to have to put time into to read everything that is given to you. This is not a quick game, its a full blown story and well worth reading every log.

I was at around 30% of the logs when I knew I enjoyed this game, it sounds a lot but you're provided with a lot to begin with and the initial ones aren't that interesting. The more you read the better and more fleshed out the story is. Everyone's background is worth finding out as its both sad, surprising and a little nsfw at times too (which I didn't expect at all).

If you're looking for a quick click through visual novel this isn't the one for you.

I fully completed this game, 100% achievements, in 5 hours - so its not crazy long either.

The story is well worth the money and time. Hooray for waifu's :3

PROS: Atmosphere is engrossing, it's easy to want to finish this game in one sitting. There is a fair amount of content to read through over the course of all endings. I found it surprising that segments with the command prompt were super engaging and fun! Interface is different from most other VNs, though easy to adjust to.

CONS: Being unacquainted with traditional Korean names made it tough to really grasp what was going on through my first play-through. Their length and foreign nature made it hard to visualize what was happening. Visual novel stills in the form of photographs or single frames taken from "security cameras" would have been a great aid. A single playthrough is a bit short. More direct interaction with Mute and Hyun-ae would have been nice.

OVERALL: A general synopsis of Analogue is deceptively uninteresting compared to experiencing it first-hand, something I don't see very often with text adventures. I'm giddy with anticipation for Hate Plus.

I admit that I'm a complete stranger to the visual novel genre - I can't even remember what led me to pick up Analogue. I do remember seeing the trailer, and being intrigued by the thought that there was more to this story than there seemed to be.

I wasn't wrong in the least.

While I don't have a solid basis for comparison, I do think that the minimalist style, smooth animations and unobtrusive soundtrack really complement the game. The focus is on the story that your A.I. of choice is telling you, and nothing else...with the possible exception of the A.I. themselves. The differences between *Mute and *Hyun-ae are profound, and only become more so as you spiral down into the mystery of the ship. While ultimately, the story here is *Hyun-ae's, *Mute's perspective provides a counterpoint essential to seeing *Hyun-ae's actions in the right light. When you're reading the story told by both women, captivated by the pieces of the puzzle falling into place, the mood can turn rather intense.

Though there is humor here, too. *Mute is remarkably crass, given her programming, and the levity her sass lends some serious situations is appreciated. *Hyun-ae is playful in her own right: should you befriend her enough, she will display different outfits for you, letting you use the in-game terminal to play a limited form of dress-up.

Speaking of the terminal, that and a Yes/No dialogue wheel will be the principle ways you assert yourself in-game. It's actually a nice mechanic. There are several times where the terminal comes in handy, and it's pretty intuitive to use. I also found the UI - probably due to that minimalist feel - comfortable to pick up.

All told, I couldn't find much wrong with Analogue. It was a wonderful introduction to the visual novel genre, and I plan to pick up it's sequel, Hate Plus. Might look into other visual novels as well, if they're half as good as this one.
