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

Nylig oppdatert

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 is truly a piece of art, it's so simple and yet so brilliant. I don't even normally like anime, but as a game and a story it triumphs in so many ways it's difficult to describe. You're all alone in a spaceship, your only friend is AI *Hyun-ae, together you start reading letters and some sort of memoirs about old noble families and all the terrible things that happened to them. It's a tragic story, but it also showed a great sense of humor on few occasions. It has more than one ending and many different choices to make so I'm sure I will replay it again sometime. If you're a fan of visual novels, I believe it's worth of buying for a full price + soundtrack which is AMAZING.

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.

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 ^^

I’d like to start off by saying that I believe this game is very much a hit or miss sort of title, with little deviation into more lukewarm territory. In other words, I believe you'll either really like this game or really dislike this game. As you can see from my thumbs up right there^, this game was certainly a hit for me, but as Visual Novels aren’t for everyone, I cannot guarantee that it will be for you as well.

Analogue: A Hate Story gives you, a deep space investigator, the task of sifting through the written records of the now dead inhabitants of a long lost (and now newly re-discovered) colony ship with the help of the ship's two cute and (mostly) friendly AIs. As you read each document, you’ll slowly piece together a fuller story of the ship’s ‘not-quite-right’ society, and the events that lead to its ultimate demise. I found the story tastefully dark and engaging enough to keep me flipping the pages (as much as you can flip pages in a Visual Novel) until the very end.

The only real complaint I have is the lack of a difficulty setting. Granted by definition Visual Novels don’t have much gameplay to them that could be altered by a difficulty setting, but in this VN in particular, there is one section where I would have enjoyed a bit more of a challenge. With only mild spoilers, suffice to say that you are given too much time to complete a certain task that anyone with any sort of experience with Command Prompt will fly through in a quarter or less of the allotted time. A difficulty setting that decreases that time would have been a nice addition.

Relatively minor discrepancies aside though, I believe this game is definitely worth a shot if you’ve ever got $10 (or $3.39 if you’re buying during a super-sale like I did) to spare, whether it turns out to be a hit or a miss for you.

Visual novels are a genre that is not well known to most english speaking peoples. Visual novels are mainly read and produced by Japan where they make up a large percentage of the PC games market.

Analogue: A Hate Story is a decent beginners visual novel. It is relatively short for a VN at just 4 hours of "gameplay" but if you can get it for 2 or 3 bucks it is worth the price of admission.

There are not too many good VNs on steam but if you like A Hate Story you should check out Narcissu. IT IS FREE.

This is ancient history now, but for a while, back around 2005 or so, there was a perception, largely created by a single translation group, that the "visual novel," a format of linear text adventure that grew out of the Japanese PC games scene, might actually have something to offer beyond cheap titillation. They chose short, indie works like narcissu, Planetarian or OMGWTFBBQ, melodramatic stories of finding that last emotional connection in the moments before your early and miserable death. And then they pretty much stopped doing it (at least for free), because, hell, translating this stuff is a pain, and that was the end of that.

Analogue feels much like the promise of those earlier works. Written in English by a native speaker and skilled writer, with a great sense for how to use the interactive features of the format to really draw you in, in a way that "an ordinary book" can't. It's smart, somber, and complicated; it's a well-told story, and not just "for video games." And really, I just have a thing for simulated terminal interfaces.
