Play Narcissu 1st & 2nd

 

Recommended By Curators

"I don't even need to play this in order to know that it's good, because it has an anime girl in it, which is good. You'll probably enjoy this, maybe."

About This Game

... on that blindingly bright day ...
... on that very day of winter ...

This is a story of disease and suffering; of medication and adverse effects; of thoracotomy scars and cellular poisons; of the living who cannot help but to die and of the dying who cannot help but to live; of a resting place other than "on 7F" or "at home".

This is a story of so many things.

But most of all ...

This is the story
of a girl whose heart was standing still
and a boy whose breath was being stolen away,
both of whom die.

There is no fourth time, the third time you are admitted is the last, so prepare yourself.
Narcissu 1st and 2nd is a kinetic novel (Without choices) that portrays the lives of young adults living in the 7th floor of the hospital, the floor in which its residents awaits their deaths. Narcissu 1st and 2nd is a very well made visual novel with highly emotional and wonderfully written storyline, together with the marvelous soundtracks. It puts you in the perspective of people who have a limited amount of time left, people whose future had been denied, people who have nothing left in life, people who live their lives everyday thinking about the day when they will pass on. This Visual Novel is able to invoke a series of emotions and feelings that will linger around even after you completed the story. It is also free of charge, I highly recommend Narcissu if you are a fan of tragic stories or Visual Novels. Definitely one of the better made visual novel there is on Steam.
Right now, do you want me to pull you back, or instead, do you want me to give your back a push?
10/10 will climb Mt Fuji to complain to god again.

AUDIO: Fun                                                                      AESTHETIC:
MEMORABILITY:                                              WORTH: Free!

PROS: Different subtitle sets are available. The environment is very pretty. For taking place mostly inside a car, Narcissu 1 is engaging. Great soundtrack. Surprisingly Fulfilling for a Free to play game! Several key/mouse options to click to progress, allowing you to alternate how you're positioned while reading.

CONS: All of the game's visuals are trapped in an uncomfortable little letterbox. This is a unique stylization, but a little annoying. There are no character sprites, you see the female lead perhaps 4 times total in the first game. At times, it is nauseatingly melancholy. Voice option is not very good. I found the sequel to be weak and feel that it drones on aimlessly.

OVERALL: There is absolutely no interaction in this VN, but it's still a nice little ride. I liked it, but you may not; If you're looking for a peaceful, satisfying read with a nice conclusion then this is a great F2P story.
