Análises

“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

Atualizado recentemente

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.

Sobre o jogo

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.

Primeira coisa que gostaria de apontar: A trilha sonora é maravilhosa. Como comprei o jogo e a trilha durante a Summer Sale, digo que valeu à pena, mas o preço original é um pouco salgado. Se você tiver créditos sobrando, entretanto, vale muito à pena.

Bom, sobre o jogo:

Analogue é MUITO bom. Eu normalmente tenho expectativas minúsculas sobre Visual Novels, porque elas sempre têm plotholes terríveis e/ou escrita ruim, mas Analogue não. Pra entender a história, é provável que você tenha que jogar mais de 2 vezes. Uma para cada rota (*Hyun-Ae e *Mute), e uma pra tentar conseguir todos os logs. Isso é um ponto positivo, apesar de não parecer. Se chama Replay-Value.

Por ter poucos achievements (e fáceis de conseguir, aliás), você pode sentir a vontade de jogar o jogo novamente para conseguí-los. Felizmente você pode pular qualquer diálogo que já leu, aparentemente, mesmo se você não salvou o jogo depois de algumas conversas. Os extras também são legais (concept arts, boxart, etc.)

Mas... o jogo tem um pequeno problema: MUITOS personagens irrelevantes. Não só isso, mas nomes coreanos são DIFÍCEIS de memorizar. Se o jogo não tivesse as árvores genealógicas das duas famílias num lugar bem fácil de achar, seria um problema maior, mas ainda assim é confuso.

Em geral, o jogo é ótimo e superou as minhas expectativas. Fico surpreso por um jogo tão avançado ter sido feito em RenPy. Eu daria um 8.5 pra esse jogo, se a Steam tivesse um sistema de notas. :3

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 ^^

A good game with a good (though not perfect) storytelling, and kept me completely engaged once I pushed myself into getting used to juggling who's who (there are a lot of names being thrown about). The ending(s) are quite satisfying and worth the time you put into it, and the bright art and cosplay make a nice balance for the serious content.

That said, it's a game made for a somewhat niche market, ie. people who are already familiar with visual novels and probably also dating sims. It sometimes goes quite deeply into LGBT issues and problems of gender equality, but at the same time displays some of the stereotypes of having cute, 'pursuable' female characters in a VN setting (a bit odd to me, but eh?). If those descriptors feel nowhere near your style of gaming or storytelling then this game is not for you. Otherwise, this game is a treat.

This game is a must play if you like visual novels but, its a little off the beaten path of the normal love dovey ones and as you can tell this game is very dark and the society in this game will probably make you want to puke at how disturbing it is. In my opinion a must play for anyone into visual novels just be warned theres lots and lots of text to go through.
