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...

Excellent follow-up to Analogue a Hate Story. Both of these games don't follow the traditional Visual Novel formula. Yes, you still interact with 2d beautiful, anime girls, but you are acting more as a historian than as an actual character in a story. The way that you go through text files and read the unfolding drama is fascinating and intriguing, and the writing does a good job of making absolutely everyone feel sympathetic, even the worst characters in the game. If you've never played a visual novel, give Analogue and it's sequel a chance.

P.S. The interface in this game is drastically better than the one in the original Analogue, especially since you can look up character names by clicking on them. But you won't understand this game AT ALL if you don't play Analogue first, so go do that. It only takes about 3 hours for each title, so it's not a huge time sink.

I gave part of some cake I had to my 2D waifu. And was thoroughly pleased with the results.
Well put together, and very satisfying. "It's Not Ero" is actually a pretty awesome song.
Would change the date manually again so I can play the next day. 10/10

Though less unique due to the natural storyline, Hate Plus is an improvement on the best visual novel I've had the pleasure to read, Analogue: A Hate Story. Both games are very innovative and have major replay value, and Hate Plus expands even further on those things in a very cathartic way, especially in a certain path. Also, the soundtrack is once again very emotive and beautiful.

Another heartwarming and educational experience. Very unique in that it taught me to sympathize with people I'd simply label a bigot. Hate begets hate, but understanding other perspectives can break the cycle. And that's what I learned.

*literal applause*

I went through seven levels of hell and came back unscatched.

Really liked how the story led into the events of the first game, I feel like the games together provide a fairly complete picture. I do wish the three routes were a bit more differentiated, but they all had their own flavor.
