Bu Oyun Hakkında

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.

Analogue : A Love Story was an interesting game, a visual novel that wasn't just focused on romance with a bunch of NPC. It had an interesting, original setting, and the goal of the game was to solve a mystery, rather than pursue a romance. Romance was there for people who wanted it, but it was definitely optional.

Unfortunately, its sequel, Hate Plus, deals with what happened far into the past. Thus, you know the setting, you know how it ends, and it's just a matter of reading about the details. There is not enough to capture the attention, you're stuck reading a bunch of stories which just do not have enough in them to keep your interest alive. Besides the main "story", most (all ?) of the other are related to love and relationships, which are fine subject, but I think they each lose their individual interest when all of them shares the same topic. The game actually asks you to pace yourself, forcing you to log off from time to time, but every time i did that, I was losing even more interest (at one point I forgot about the game for a week before logging back in).

So you know the ending before you start, and if you're not very interested by the stories, what is left ? The AI from the first game. They are with you, but you already know their personal story. So it now comes down to their reaction to what you're reading and your "relationship" with them. That's where the game becomes really creepy. That's where it goes back to the full romance system of most visual novels, the thing that Analogue had cleverly managed to avoid. Either you approve to what they say or ask, or the game makes you feels like a jerk.

I'm not sure if there is a middle road somewhere, but it's possible. I just can't be bothered to find out due to all the forced steps and pauses needed to do it. Especially when sometimes, there are conversations where none of the dialog choices are what you would actually want to say.

Another creepy part of the game is related specifically to Mute*. The way she react to what happened to the ship, as it was before her times, and thus she had different values. I know she is extremely conservative but having her disparaging every single story gets tiresome. Page after page about romances Mute disapproves of...Once again the clever writing of Analog has become way too black and white, because the context, of having to solve a mystery and getting away from the endangered ship, isn't there any more to balance things out.

So while I heartily recommend "Analogue : A True Story" to anyone playing games, my advice is to skip Hate Plus. Despite an improved UI, it has lost the good pacing and the balanced approach of the first game, replacing it with creepy AI, a weird fixation on maids and other visual novels tropes.

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*

A Paladin’s Steam Review: Hate Plus

This is the follow-up sequel to Analogue: A Hate Story game.

Overall Story Thoughts
The sequel to A Hate Story is still based on the same concept of the original. You’re an investigator who hacked into the Mugunghwa, a colony ship that lost contact with Earth a long time ago, and you managed to save an AI(s) from the doomed vessel. Like in the previous game, they can talk to you but you can’t talk to them due to an installation error/mcguffin. You do have a few more options in what you can say but they still boil down to: yes/no/maybe. This time around, the AI has more log files from the colony ship that you didn’t get to see in the previous game. These logs have clues into what caused the enactment of the oppressive society and then the eventual events that you read about in the previous title. So, it’s time to find out what happened. This time around, the AI will actively read the logs with you and provide colorful commentary every now and again. This is especially amusing if you rescued both Hyun-ae & Mute from a previous save game. So, read the logs and find out what happened.

This game seems easier to follow than the previous one. The game provides a photo (for most) and profile for characters to help you keep track of who’s who. Logs are still setup to be read at your own pace and in the order of your choosing. That said, the game makes sure that they’re relevant regardless of when you read them. There aren’t any notes on pronunciation (which I found to be helpful in the previous game) and the two family trees aren’t listed. Probably because it wasn’t the main focus of this story. Overall, the story is about the same as the previous game in terms of how densely it uses lore, name usage and politics. Which is a bit more than the average story. But this time, you have a more solid grounding of what’s going on with the characters. Even if you’re new to this series, you’ll be brought up to speed quickly enough.

Real World Time Mechanic
There’s a real world aspect to this game that I haven’t seen before. The store page states that it will take three days in order to finish this game. The in-game reason is that your ship is running on emergency power and has to recharge after every document extraction. So, the game will have you wait 12 real world hours before it lets you continue to the next chapter. You get about 1-2 hours per chapter. I think this will be a love/hate mechanic with a lot of people. I like it because I treat these games as something to wind down to before I go sleep, so, it gives me the right moment to save and shutdown for the night. But on the other hand, you have to wait before you can complete the game and you can’t finish the game in one go. I’m sure if you meddled with your PC’s clock, you could do it one finish. But then, where’s the fun in that? Some will like this, other’s will see it as an unnecessary inconvenience. It’s up to you to decide which way you go.

PC Settings
Expected genre settings are here. Text speed, animations on or off and English/Korean language. Audio sliders for music and effects are available as well. Resolutions are still restricted to 1024x640 and 1024x600. I still think those are odd resolution choices but the game scales well so I can’t complain. The UI has gone through some UI changes but keeps much of the same setup the previous game had. However, there’s an odd flickering to the UI that happens once in a while which seems to be intentional. I don’t like it because it’s more distracting than immersive. Additionally, scrolling through logs has an odd, frequent pause while reading it, especially when you have two AIs with you while reading. This seems to be caused by the frequent changes in the facial expressions of the AIs and the game checking to see if it needs to display their comments or not. It’s not a big deal. Game is stable and bug free as far as I can tell.

AI Characters
It continues where you left off, allowing you to load the save from the previous game or start fresh, letting you set which AI you saved and what their attitude is towards you. Hyun-ae & Mute get even more time to develop their character and backstory, though more of the focus is on Mute and what happened to her. I really like that they get to actively participate in the reading of the logs rather than sit in the background and come out every now and again to give their two cents.

Final Thoughts
While the sequel doesn't get as dark as it’s predecessor, it still paints a disturbing story of culture change and betrayal. The mystery, the futuristic setting and serious dark tone are still well executed. Maintaining it’s sci-fi atmosphere with the music and futuristic UI glues all the pieces together for a great experience in the AVN genre. Hate Plus gets a recommendation from this Paladin.

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.
