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

Reviews

“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

Just Updated

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.

About This Game

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.

- *Hyun-ae is my *Hyun-bae
- 10/10 would investigate again

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.

The story is actually great and mature, unlike some visual novels. That's why I had no high hopes, but before I knew it I was 2 hours into it. It is fascinating. You know what happens but it is fun to see it unfold. Very dramatical loves and you get to read it in their personal correspondance.. (a bit like facebook lol) I can't say much about the art. The AIs are cute and the interface really works well. The costumes are a great bonus!

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.
