If you knew you were going to die, would you cry? or would you curse your fate?
Narcissu is the story of two terminally ill patients of the 7th floor, that decide to leave the hospital for a trip.
We follow their journey through Narcissu and in Narcissu 2nd, a prequel to the first, we witness a similar story.
This VN is short, in around 5 to 6 hours, I finished both games and the epilogue and acquired all the achievements.
The story is very beautifull, but somber, which is expected when the main protagonists are barely hanging on to life.
The style is very minimalistic, most of the art is scenery. A lot of people complained that the art style was not to their liking, but I think it's very pretty, serene and delicate. It's definitely better in Narcissu 2nd.
The music is wonderful and calming, I love it and bought it instantly. If you like relaxing piano tracks, it's worth the listen. You can access it in the extra menu of the game.
I recommend playing this VN, it's free and it is short enough to occupy you on a rainy afternoon. Though the themes explored in the story are daunting and heatbreaking, it still touches upon something we can all retale to, death.
