About the 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...

Plot is not quite as good as the first one but it has a lot of cool extra stuff. I highly recommend playing Hate Story before this, even your save gets imported to Hate Plus.

While I don't hate this game, I find that it's much weaker than the first game. There's a three day gimmick while interesting the first time around, is just a weird barrier that ultimately doesn't mean anything, since you can just skip through it by holding space down in the main menu. On the one route I've played, I played along with the gimmick, and it just felt bizarre having to wait, though I will admit that there was quite a bit of anticipation between the second and third day, so if that was the objective, then I suppose it was done well enough.

There are a few quirks that are quite annoying - for instance, for some reason you're unable to just smoothly scroll down a page, it has to pause every few seconds. I'm unsure if this was an intentional design decision or not, but relative to the first game where everything felt a lot more smooth and responsive, it's quite annoying. Another thing I disliked is how you obtain the data this time around. Instead of talking with your AI companions and having them slowly reveal the story to you, you instead just select and choose which entries you want to read. Furthermore, the AI companions aren't essential to the plot of this game, and feel more like side kicks than anything else.

That being said, the AI sidekicks in this game aren't bad, and in fact, it's interesting to hear their thoughts on the going-ons of what occurred on the ship a few hundred years ago. They inject a bit of light heartedness into what is ultimately a tragic story, though *Mute's route definitely has some even darker themes on the third day. I can't speak for Hyun-ae's route, since I never did get around to doing her route, but I'm positive the third day with her won't have nearly the same impact that Mute's did.

And that is one of my big problems - this is subjective of course, others may loved it - but the ending to Mute's route is quite dark, as mentioned before. It deals with some really serious issues, and while it was quite effective, and it hit me like a bus, I didn't particularly care for it.

Overall, only buy this if you're a HUGE fan of the original like I was, but make sure to avoid Mute's route until you finished Hyun-ae's, otherwise it'll probably sour your experience.

Hate Plus feels a bit like an add-on rather than standalone game. It's predecessor Analogue: A Hate Story was really good. Great atmosphere from the start ( story is on a abandoned ship and you have to investigate what happened, music was great and one time you had to hack a console to prevent core meltdown while developing relationship with the AI. ). It brought new things to the table of Visual Novels and it was fresh...

Hate Plus feels like a downgrade. Music is not memorable and there is no feeling of supspence and exploration unlike in Analogue: A Hate Story. There are at least two design decisions that I hate in Hate Plus :D. First when you run out of power which can be pretty fast if you aren't intrested in some lousy stories ( of what it appears to be homosexual relationships ) you have to wait ONE REAL LIFE day to progress the game... well thanks a fricking lot.

What if you have kids to pick up from kindergarden? You have work tomorrow and then you won't have time in the afternoon? Well this game doesn't give a flying fart. You have to adjust or start New game and try different route and pick different logs.
Imagine that you are playing Call of Duty you have finished first chapter and then game tell you : Your soldier is tired he needs to rest ONE REAL LIFE DAY in order to progress to the next battlefield... ARE YOU FRICKING KIDDING ME??!

Next bad decision is the graphics. They have been slightly enlarged compared to Analogue. In my opinion it looks a bit itimidating and too close ( maybe they wanted players to feel closer to the AI... ). Whatever they thought It doesn't work for me...
On top of that navigating through the menues is cumbersome because of the speed that windows appear ( unfold ). On top of that scrolling speed is slow...

Apart from that for those who have played first game this will feel a bit like a downgrade but as a curious person I need to see it to the end. That might be the only thing that drives me... see the ending. Because I can't enjoy the ride this time around....

Thanks for reading. Have a nice day.

I use to laugh when I'd look at the message boards and I'd see all those geeky otaku making cakes for their digital girlfriends and giving them presents on special days. Even though this isn't a dating simulator, I feel as though I can finally understand what it truly means to be two-dimensionally in love. My first waifu will always be there to tease, to play with, to share her wit and insight. Kind, sweet, and only a little murderous, she'll always have a place in my heart. For her, I'd eat a cake every day.

The other one, well, I'll never get tired of looking into those vivid blue eyes, appreciating that cat like grin that creeps up on her face, her elegant way of dress or how in a moment she can deal out a harsh and shunning attitude that whips my heart full of passion. The beauty of it all is that no matter how many times she may wish to die, we shall always be in the perpetual spring of marriage, for there will always be a reset, and day three, will never come again. Not now, not ever.
