About This Game

Let's spend the next three real-time days together uncovering the mystery of what went horribly wrong on a derelict generation ship, with the help of a spunky/more-than-slightly-traumatized AI sidekick!

A sequel to Analogue: A Hate Story that tells a whole new hate story of its own. Analogue players can pick up where their finished save files left off, and new players can start fresh in Hate Plus.

A dark visual novel about transhumanism, cosplay, cake-baking, and the slow patriarchal erosion of freedoms taken for granted.

The story so far...

I can't believe it! My mission was supposed to be routine data recovery on an old derelict generation ship, but instead, I ended up rescuing an adorable AI girl who grew up in a tremendously patriarchal Neo-Confucian society? And now she's discovered a bunch of messages left by the mysterious Old *Mute... and wants me to uncover with her the slow enactment of a regressive political program that caused her society to regress to Joseon Dynasty social mores?!

I wasn't expecting this at all! I thought the three day trip back to Earth would be peaceful and lonely and not at all filled with reading about tragedy!

And so began my hateful days...

An achievement that you need to bake a cake in real life to get and an achievement that is literally impossible to get (only person with it since the game released 2013 is the maker of the game), just to troll with the achievement hunters. That's enough for me to like any game!

I don't want to spoil too much, but the game had a somewhat interesting story, multiple endings and it encouraged taking breaks between the chapters (doing so gave you an achievement) instead of rushing through it in one go.
First VN I've played (it does count as one, right?), so I don't know much about the genre. But considering the price (back when it was in a bundle), I think it was worth it. I wouldn't pay the full price for it though.
6,5/10

This series really is something special. This visual novel is a sequel to "Analogue: A Hate Story", and takes place moments after it. Gameplay remains similar while telling yet another story with dark and mature themes.

The story has you managing your remaining power on your 3-day trip back to earth, while you uncover the mystery of what happened "before year 0" onboard of the Mugungwha. The game lets you pick your wai-- I mean companion AI, and even how they act towards you (If you have a finished save file of Analogue you can load it and it will remember things, like how you acted and all). While the routes have you reading similar log files, their reactions and "break conversations" are unique and different, and you'll experience a different perspective of the story.

I'm being relaively vague in this review, as I don't want to spoil any possible surprises. Just know that this story tackles some themes you might not generally see in a visual novel, and you will probably find yourself conflicted and questioning things often.

It's a very unique story with many feels and laughs. It's definitely a series I've come to really enjoy, and hope there might be more at some point in the future. Highly recommended if you want a short, but very unique and interesting visual novel.

*Kudos to the creator for shining light on LGBT!

I have to admit I really like this one a lot better than Analogue: A Hate Story. Not because Analogue was a bad game either, but because this one keeps the story flowing after you wanted so much more from Analogue and I appreciate the creator for resuming the story.

As for the gameplay, it's still a point and click, message reading and desiphering game. You can carry on your data from Analogue or start over with your own preferences on how you want the game to begin and who with. I carried mine over, so I can't say much about starting with *Mute or a new route.

The soundtrack is still subtle but very nice to drown out to, and the character development only grows from here. It's a game you will get engulfed in and completely forget your surroundings.

One thing I'm washy about is the real time effect (waiting 11 hours between intervals to resume the story) but it does stretch out gameplay a lot more and makes it more enjoyable to come back to a greeting from Hyun.

It's hard to review it in one light, because to each their own. I highly recommend Hate Plus and Analogue though. It's worth at least trying out to see if you like it.

As Hyun stresses, it's not just another anime harem simulation, but focuses more on the story while balancing your relationship with Hyun and/or Mute (which you can be nice, or a total a-hole to them both, though Mute will probably tell you off). It's funny and cute; what else can I say?

While the plot isn't always my cup of tea, Christine Love has to be given credit for actually improving on Hate Plus's predecessor in terms of the graphics and music. Not only that, it's probably one of the few games out there where it takes roleplaying to the next level, requiring you to patiently wait in real life in order to access a new batch of emails or while you bake a cake. For those without patience, having to wait before continuing with the game will seem like an infuriating gimmick; to the rest though, it's a brilliant way to further immerse the player into the world of Hate Plus.
