关于这款游戏

From the author of Spice and Wolf, Isuna Hasekura, comes WORLD END ECONOMiCA. The opening video features music by Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets, known for the opening songs for High School of the Dead and Strike the Blood.

A three part visual novel set in the far future on the moon, 16 years after humans have begun to colonize it. A young boy named Haru has been chasing his wildest dream. His dream is to stand where no man has stood before, and in order to do so he needs capital, a ludicrous amount of capital. What better place to get that amount of capital by using the stock market? There are two key rules that govern the stock market.

  • The first rule: Never take a loss.
  • The second rule: Never forget the first.

Only those who follow these rules are able to obtain enormous wealth...

The story is a 10/10 for me.
I really enjoyed the development of the story and the characters are well written. I never felt that one person was doing something only to progress in the story but it was what fits their pattern.
Also the setting on the moon and the economic view points were well set and explained.

But the overall rating for this VN would be 6.5/10 since the VN lacks on illustration and sometimes the sound was just cut off or there was no music at all.
Due to the limitation in pictures they often got reused even though it didn't really fit the situation.
I think that could have been easily improved and I hope this will be better in EP 2 and 3.

I can recommend this novel to anyone who might enjoy an economical setting in a future world with a great set of characters and a well thought plotline. But if you like your novels to have different endings and were you can chose your path, you should step back since this has a straight plotline with no choices.

Amazing kinetic VN! Storyline was really good, full of details; characters had their own personalities (MC ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off a bit but it’s ok, that’s their personality. It was nicely written, it’s not that the character isn’t good — they can be quite annoying when they want, just that. And to be honest, I also disliked their weird thoughts/behavior towards Hagana at the beginning of the game). This is one of the best VNs on Steam, without a doubt.

The art style was good, BG was nicely done, BGM was awesome as well. The only little complaint that I have is that sometimes during the narration, the BG/sprites are not there… It’s a black screen. I don’t know if that was the author’s intention, but I thought that kinda “broke” the climax during certain parts. Despite that, it’s a wonderful work totally worth paying the full price since it’s quite of a long story for a kinetic VN. I can’t wait to play the next chapters!

8/10, because like I said, MC annoyed me. But well, it’s worth checking this VN if you wish to read a more complex story. The ending might ♥♥♥♥ you off tho, since it was quite different…

WORLD END ECONOMiCA is a kinetic Visual Novel made by Isuna Hasekura, which is known for being the author of the renowned Light Novel, Spice & Wolf.

Like the author's previous work, this kinetic Visual Novel has the economical drive within it's repository, joining in the mix of tragedy and love. Isuna Hasekura's previous work, Spice & Wolf, revolves around trading. This time, WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.01, revolves around Stocks and it's Market. I am amazed at how the author succinctly mixes different genres in this Visual Novel, much like Spice & Wolf.

WORLD END ECONOMiCA has three games, namely episode.01/02/03.

However, one should not compare Isuna Hasekura's Spice & Wolf and WORLD END ECONOMiCA, as the former is a Light Novel and the latter being a Visual Novel. Of course the manner of telling the story is significally different, as a Visual Novel introduces music and accompanying CG to maximize the tone of the current atmosphere and situation but with less words to further balance the narration of story by giving the personality to the CGs and sprites, while the words supply the story itself, unlike a Light Novel where the artworks are introduced at the start of reading, but it just introduces the setting and vibe of the story being told, with the descriptive narrative giving most of a Light Novel's shine. Nonetheless, one should not underestimate Isuna Hasekura, and one should know that the author would definitely give a story that is rich and fantastic.



PROS:
- Fantastic setting and atmosphere
- Rich character development
- Character personalities are well-developed, and makes them stand out at each other
- Nice soundtrack that optimizes the tone of the current situation
- Cute and well-drawn character art and CG
- Length of the Visual Novel is enough to deliver the story
- Made by Isuna Hasekura!

CONS:
- The opening to the story is a bit bland in my opinion
- The Main Character has an unlikeable personality, and makes rash cynical decisions (but this will be remedied later on)
- The explanation about Stocks are long and a bit confusing if not understood clearly (Seeing the Visual Novel is about Stocks, I'd recommend anyone to have atleast a very basic information about Stocks and its workaround)
- There are very few soundtracks to begin with. And a few of these are incorrectly looped.
- This Visual Novel does not yet support Steam Overlay, and its current engine does not yet support Achievements and Trading Cards (However, this will be also remedied later on)
- Sadly, there is no Holo
- THAT ♥♥♥♥ING CLIFFHANGER!!!



Overall, I would recommend WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.01 to those people who likes Light Novels and Kinetic Novels in general. Please be reminded that there will be an update that makes it compatible with Steam Overlay, Steam Achievements and Trading Cards, though. The stories are long, too. I'd advise you to wait for Sekai Project to release all the episodes, because then they would patch them to a different engine.

This visual novel is beyond amazing, it legit had me feeling things I never felt before for a couple of days. I highly recommend it. Good characters, good explanations of economics, and lots of heart pounding moments. The tale of two runaways under the same roof with very different paths taken in life as well as the dream of becoming the most richest MC through the means of investing is quite intriguing.

The only downside is if you are not interested in economics, it will bore you more then anything and you'll find yourself not wanting to continue after ep.1

When I read that this game was from the author of Spice and Wolf, I had to give it a shot, and was not disappointed. The story starts slow with lots of world building, but as characters are introduced, they gain depth rather quickly and the world gets extremely complex with each new character with an underlying theme of economics and stock trading.

This is a kinetic novel, where you don't have choices and basically just enjoy the story. There are some points where there will be no backgrounds or music, and though these were probably used to have some sort of effect on the reader, they felt out of place to me. There are also a few typing errors. Overall though, I still very much enjoyed it and am looking forward to playing/reading it's sequel (it is part of a three part series).

It's written by the guy who wrote Spice & Wolf. It's pretty heavy on economics, so a basic understanding or interest in economics would probably be required for you to understand it. It's good though, and not yet more ecchi dating sim ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ that seem to make up most Visual Novels on Steam.

On another note, a lot of people don't like the main character, which concerns me because I identified pretty strongly with him the whole way through.

For the record, I have not finished the game yet. My opinion may change when I do.

BG Artwork and character design is pretty good.

Story is boring and most of the stuff looks like filtered wikipedia research (eg. let's throw in some moon facts since the story takes place on the moon). Choice of setting as the moon is really unnecessary. It just gives the writer an excuse to throw in future techs and talk about gravity and make references to 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Characters are also flat (so far). MC Yoshiharu is bratty like many have mentioned but is also uninteresting to pick at. A typical teenage rebel who thinks he is a level above everyone else. I don't mind the misogynist part of him as much as how dull he is. The other characters whose names I can't even remember are boring as well. Makes reference to the Bible but what does that have to do with anything?

I also don't see how the economic theme factors in. It plays a role in Yoshiharu trading stocks to strike it rich but could they have taken a more dull subject and made it even more dull?

Maybe its the poor English translating that puts me off or just the fact that whatever was written in Japanese didn't carry over so well in English. The writing style is awful and pretentious kind of like some manuscript I wrote when I was in high school. Maybe I just have a higher standard for writing.

I feel like I've wasted too much time trying to read this but I want to see the ending. For people looking for a visual novel to read, this is not the one.

Although it's a bit slow to get through things, there is a great Kinectic Novel.

I'm starting to become a big fan of Isuna Hasekura, and I'm barely resisting the urge to buy the second episode right now, but I'll wait for the third one to be released.

I don't want to be forced to stop reading this awesome novel again.

Even though I'm recommending this I'm wondering if that's really what I should be doing. After all, I enjoyed this whole thing thoroughly. Truly a beautiful kinetic novel, even though it may be a bit lacking for backgrounds, I enjoyed it right up to the end. It's just that afterwards, having fully looked at the big picture, I feel like I've been punched in the gut and reversed over by a sixteen-wheeler. No spoilers, but damn... you'll just have to read it I guess

Characters and story: A+
Art: A-
Sound: B?
Production quality etc: C

There are no choices to be made: this is just a story to read about some very different and believable characters and their interactions in a well constructed and interesting setting, with a focus on economics (specifically stock trading) as a topic to bring them together (everyone has to have some relation to money in such a capitalist extreme).

Isuna Hasekura's writing style (even outside of VNs) is very dialog + monologue driven: I knew it would work great in a VN and was not disappointed. I got the Isuna Hasekura book I wanted to read, along with some pretty nice art. The story was well researched and impressivly not full of holes: there were lots of times where I expected a plot hole, but for every one of them it ended up getting pointed out and involved in the plot. WORLD END ECONOMiCA did this even better than Spice and Wolf in my opinion, which is really quite impressive (Spice and Wolf pulled it off once or twice a book for me, which is still rather amazing). I really wish more authors had his talent for not filling the world with plot holes, which he somehow manages to do even in areas like economics where its so easy to screw it up.

I got what I wanted here: another great book written by Isuna Hasekura. I didn't get a very well put together VN (Lots of free ones have better quality control...), but personally I don't care: I'm here for the characters and story, and that was very well done.

The editing of the text seemed fine, as did the translation from what I could tell.

Personally I don't find the main character very likable (who would like a 16 year old bratty boy really: I identify more with Hagane), but it doesn't detract from the entertainment value, and the character is very believable. (Note: Having read several of his stories, I feel better knowing the author is writing a sexist character on purpose: this is clear when comparing it to his other works works. If you want a nice example of his skills writing stories from different perspectives, take a look at book 7 from Spice and Wolf: there is a story from Holo's perspective which is a good read and has a quite different feel to it).

My complaints below:

While the art was pretty nice, it needed more of it, or to at least show it more (too much black screen without even character sprites).

The audio balance was a mess (even after trying to correct it with the settings). Large sections (and sometimes little bits in the middle) were missing music and ambient sounds and felt out of place. Not all of the music looped smoothly, the background sound effects were mostly too quite for me to even notice compared to the music. None of it was particularly bad (in-fact it was good content), but it was just inconsistently put together: often well done and often distracting.

Several scenes for which they already had character sprites did not show any of them, or even any background, just black (and at least once a lighting effect on the black). Its bad when in the middle of an emotional scene I'm googling around to try and sort out if something is just randomly missing or if its a bug and my game is broken.

At least for me a lot of the animations were glitchy (often one frame with a sprite out if place, and many times the text disappeared for a moment while an animation played). There were tons of momentary screen shakes like if you had been hit at totally incorrect moments: either it was a bunch of software bugs, or a flaky job porting to Ren'Py and/or Linux (at least some of the bugs if not all persisted in the Windows build when I tried it wondering it it might work better). Saves did not sync over steam. Most games on this engine (Ren'Py) work far better than this for me (I've never seen any of these issues before).

TLDR: An enjoyable story with flawed characters that can grow on you over its course. By the writer of Spice and Wolf.

My only reason for buying this visual novel was that Isuna Hasekura (writer of the Spice and Wolf light novels) wrote this. Upon immersing myself in it, I was surprised to see that there were no choices to be made. As it turns out, WEE is a kinetic visual novel, a VN without choices that is more of a book with music and pictures. Despite that, I continued on. The entire story took me only about 4.5 hours to read, although this is heavily dependant on your reading speed/settings.

Art: The art of the game was average, nothing particurlary standing out to me as being below or above the norms of Japanese visual novels. Character design was also relatively simple, with the typical array of colorfuly designed characters.

Characters: The characters of WEE part 1 are a varied bunch of people, each with their own issues that are revealed over the course of the story. Unfortunately, the VN suffers from having its entire story set up to lead into parts 2 and 3. The main character begins as an insufferable ♥♥♥♥, which unfortunately can turn off a lot of people. I would suggest sticking through as (and I hate to say this) it does get better.

Story: The story is well thought out and centers predominantly on the issues of its main character as he interacts with the cast of other characters. Stock markets plays an integral role in the story and there is a fair amount of exposition involving them. For those who care, the ending does end in a rather strong cliff hanger that leads into part 2, so don't expect any resolution.

Sound: Music was your typical VN fair with electronic tunes to match the futristic setting of the story. I was a fan of the songs used in the opening sequence and the ending credits. The story has no voice acting, so buyer beware if you're expecting to avoid having to read (or like to listen to Japanese people talk in anime speak).

WEE (World End Economica) is Visual Novel that takes place on the moon and deals with Economics of the Stock Market. Writen by the same author who made "Spice and Wolf" this VN is once again about trading and Economics (at least from what i watched of the animation of S&W)

I enjoyed reading this volume of the three part series, and would rate it so far to be the best VN on steam.

The Plot (story) is well writen and follows a Single Route path (Linear) that is slow to start but picks up later on and its well rewarding to pass over that wall. however there are no Choices to make so the reader just follows along to the dialouge.

Pros:
An well writen Single Route Story (Rated 2nd of all Single Routes overall - my rating)
Music is fairly enjoyable
Characters are well defined

Cons:
The Music loop is terrible (you could tell a song was restarting and it would skip)
There were minor errors (not going to hold it aganist this)

So if you like well written stories then you will enjoy this. although i dont know if you could use the infomation gathered from this to try the real stock market.

骗你的,剧情哪里这么开朗了,虽然没有像《水仙》那样悲惨的死亡,但是有更深刻的生活的艰辛。各个角色间的冲突展现了支仓文学描写的一面,炒股的描写更展现了支仓经济学的知识之博大……

整个剧本,塑造了好几个性格分明的人物,剧情跌宕起伏,基本上是鼓舞+抑郁(没错,是抑郁)结合,更充分展现了炒股的魅力以及显示的可怕之处。最终结局在震撼和忏悔和深度的抑郁之中戛然而止,久久不能平静,你甚至会思考这“还是支仓的剧本吗”这种问题。完全是逼着你继续买二三卷的。



再补充一句:

支仓你这样写出一个BAD END,如果第二卷不回血,真的不怕刀片?

This is probably the best Visual Novel (VN) on Steam, it's about a really good storyline, not kawaii and moe things, also it has very nice calming soundtrack that helps concentrate reading it. It's about a guy who is very good at stock trades, who lives in more future time than we, when humanity achieved fully reaching the Moon and even made city there that uses Solar power with Solar Panels to maintain itself, and it located inside a dome where even rain is simulated, so there lives our protagonist.

This VN is written by Isuna Hasekura the writer of Spice & Wolf series, there is even anime and manga of it besides more than 11 books. Because of this you can see World End Economica is written more professionally than other VNs, she describes small details very well, engages different moments with explanations of secondary things that gives a more deep feel to the story, characters and the surrounding world of the City in the Moon, I also really like the characters personality, the Moon and their citizens and different places there are described in multiple details making you feel more the world of the story.

I totally recommend getting World End Economica, if you like VNs with good more serious stories where even the anime style is a secondary thing, anime style is nice it gives characters their personality and look, but it doesn't really affect the actual story, so even if you are not into anime you would probably still like it, Isuna Hasekura is a really good writer, she won't disappoint you.

Well that..... was a interesting VN to read.

Pros
  • Beginning is slow (almost fell asleep a few times) but it pays off towards the end.
  • Big emphasis on economics and the stock market (felt like having an Economics 101 crash course).
  • Characters are interesting enough to keep the reader interested.
  • Was not expecting that type of ending.
  • The music is relaxing and nice to listen to.

Cons
  • A few written mistakes here and there but it is no big deal.
  • Could of used a bit more background art in some scenes.

This will probably make me wanna watch or read Spice and Wolf.

7.5/10

I recommend this novel, because I enjoyed it. May not be for everyone, but I enjoyed the previous series of Spice and Wolf and I enjoyed this novel as well.

I got it when it was on sale at half price in a holiday sale, so there is that. Good value for the price I paid.

I wouldn't have thought a drama about stock trading could be anything but dull, but I'm glad to say my expectations were greatly exceeded. Despite all the exposition about how stock trading works and a cast of mostly unlikable characters (who do have redeeming backstories and show development toward the end), I found myself getting invested (if you'll pardon the pun) in this lengthy tale of a pair of runaways trying to play the market and strike it rich in a beautiful domed city on the moon. Those who pay attention to the details will need to excuse the occasional unintentional retcon as the author misremembers what he had previously established, but apart from that, the writing and art are both excellent. I'm looking forward to parts 2 and 3.

Well, this is a tricky one. Being that it is part of a three part series, its true ending depends on the ending of the third part (since it's one cohesive work). However...the fact that it's separated means it should be able to stand on its own, right?

And, well, yeah, it does, for the most part. The plot in the VN is self contained, and isn't actually too shabby. We follow a boy name Hal on his endeavors to basically use the stock market to get rich quick (as quick as you can with stocks). He lives on the Moon, known for being a huge financial district (think of Wall Street...but ON THE MOON!). Through a series of events, he comes to live with Lisa and Hagana, and forms relationships with them as well as the rest of the poorer denizens of the street. Stocks are made exciting, and there's a climax at the end that I think plays pretty well into the story. The double eged sword I have with this VN was the economic jargon that is pretty much rampant throughout the VN, as I found it added authenticity and made stocks interesting, but at the same time was an incredible chore to slough through (only because I am not THAT huge of a fan of econ).

The characters all fall into specific roles, and the problem with this VN is that the development is almost nonexistent. Well, it's actually unfair to say it's not there. It's there, but it goes by in increments. Thus, change can seem to be missing in their character developments. I would argue, however, that the end and the fact there are two other parts means that what you see are their characters on the cusp of their development, and that to truly see how far they've come it's best to read the entire work.

Writing wise, there were a few awkward word choices, and art wise the art is OK but definitely improved later. The characters all speak in different ways, making it easy to distinguish characters, which I love. There is romance, but it isn't a big overblown affair and is actually subtle and sweet, though a bit too subtle if you ask me.

If you are looking for stories about ambitious, driven main characters with a big ol' helping of Economics and some sci-fi then I definitely recommend this. Just keep in mind: This is the first of three parts!

WEE (World End Economica) is Visual Novel that takes place on the moon and deals with Economics of the Stock Market. Writen by the same author who made "Spice and Wolf" this VN is once again about trading and Economics (at least from what i watched of the animation of S&W)

I enjoyed reading this volume of the three part series, and would rate it so far to be the best VN on steam.

The Plot (story) is well writen and follows a Single Route path (Linear) that is slow to start but picks up later on and its well rewarding to pass over that wall. however there are no Choices to make so the reader just follows along to the dialouge.

Pros:
An well writen Single Route Story (Rated 2nd of all Single Routes overall - my rating)
Music is fairly enjoyable
Characters are well defined

Cons:
The Music loop is terrible (you could tell a song was restarting and it would skip)
There were minor errors (not going to hold it aganist this)

So if you like well written stories then you will enjoy this. although i dont know if you could use the infomation gathered from this to try the real stock market.

Originally, I hated it. The translation is amateurish and practically unreadable in some places. There are rampant misspellings, grammatical errors, and tons of overly literal translations with no regard toward how people actually speak in English. It's very clearly a novel translated to English from Japanese. The translation does get better by the end, and, strangely, becomes very clear during some - though not all - explanations of the stock market and investment banking, but it was a slog. I really had to force myself to read it at the beginning. Betweem the slow story and the poor quality of the translation, it was all I could do to stick with it.

But I did stick with it.

And I was not disappointed.

It's a slow buildup, but the payoff is pretty damn good. The character development is very real and very defined, and that's something I really appreciate. The characters start off pretty archetypal. You have the protagonist, an angsty, elitist, misanthropic, sociopathic punk, the ojousama character who is totally aloof and doesn't know how the world works, the overly kind caretaker woman whose only real purpose in life seems to just be to be unreasonably kind to strangers, and a smattering of other characters. By the end of the novel, though, you've learned all about their complications, hopes, dreams, and fears, you've seen their true colors and watched them show unexpected sides of themselves, and you've seen each of them, but the protagonist especially, change noticeably.

And of course, there's the investment banking aspect. Who knew trading stocks could be so tense and exciting? There are a few moments near the end where you really are on the edge of your seat, and the outcomes do tend to be very unexpected. The end of the novel, where the reader's patience really starts paying off, is an emotional roller coaster as full of as many highs and lows as a graph of the stock market, and while not all of it has to do with day trading, the parts that do are far from boring - and I say that as someone who can barely do multiplication in his head. True, some of the concepts were over my head, and I totally got lost in some explanations and events, but ultimately, I enjoyed it.

Personally, I think the payoff is worth it. Under other circumstances, I wouldn't have read past the first few hours, but in the end, I'm glad I did. If you're willing to sit through the first 2-4 hours of boring exposition (Yeah, I know, not exactly a bullish proposal, hurrhurrhurr), you'll be rewarded by the end if you like stories with good plot and character development.

TLDR: An enjoyable story with flawed characters that can grow on you over its course. By the writer of Spice and Wolf.

My only reason for buying this visual novel was that Isuna Hasekura (writer of the Spice and Wolf light novels) wrote this. Upon immersing myself in it, I was surprised to see that there were no choices to be made. As it turns out, WEE is a kinetic visual novel, a VN without choices that is more of a book with music and pictures. Despite that, I continued on. The entire story took me only about 4.5 hours to read, although this is heavily dependant on your reading speed/settings.

Art: The art of the game was average, nothing particurlary standing out to me as being below or above the norms of Japanese visual novels. Character design was also relatively simple, with the typical array of colorfuly designed characters.

Characters: The characters of WEE part 1 are a varied bunch of people, each with their own issues that are revealed over the course of the story. Unfortunately, the VN suffers from having its entire story set up to lead into parts 2 and 3. The main character begins as an insufferable ♥♥♥♥, which unfortunately can turn off a lot of people. I would suggest sticking through as (and I hate to say this) it does get better.

Story: The story is well thought out and centers predominantly on the issues of its main character as he interacts with the cast of other characters. Stock markets plays an integral role in the story and there is a fair amount of exposition involving them. For those who care, the ending does end in a rather strong cliff hanger that leads into part 2, so don't expect any resolution.

Sound: Music was your typical VN fair with electronic tunes to match the futristic setting of the story. I was a fan of the songs used in the opening sequence and the ending credits. The story has no voice acting, so buyer beware if you're expecting to avoid having to read (or like to listen to Japanese people talk in anime speak).

This game has a very intresting storyline although u must be able to understand stocks because this story has a lot to do with stocks and what not. i give this game a 7.5 cause not everyone will be able to understand the full story without understanding a bit about stocks and stuff but the ending was such a shocker, you wouldn't even believe it. It was a good story and i would reccomend this game when it goes on sale.

I'm looking for great story. Granted I got it in this Visual Novel.

For me, the characters are well developed. The story takes it times to introduce parts of the character which make me feel sympathized with them.
The theme for the story itself, stock market, incorporated really well to the development of the story and the characters. Though, sometimes kinda felt too forced. It's what story revolved in.

The amount of information is kinda overwhelming. Not something to read in one seat to fully enjoyed it. But, fortunately, no need understanding hi technical things in stock market, the characters' reactions can give us clue as to what happened in the stock market. It might something that not everyone will enjoy, cause the stock market scene happened on daily basis. (numbers, numbers, formula, etc.)

So yeah. While the VN gets technical on the stock market, it didn't forget to tell story. Touching one even. As I said before, the characters get developed well and therefore make them memorable. Even if this VN set in the future when people can live on the moon, it still address problems we have with real world today.

Outside of the story, I don't have complain for the arts, they are good. The musics also complement the story well. But some problem lies on transitioning from some scenes to scenes were not so smooth, glitchy even. The music also looped at awkward point, kinda shame. But other than that, I have no complain.
Definitely worth to read

Gonna read the episode 02 now

警告,本文有少量剧透,不喜勿看。

本作是狼与香辛料的作者支仓冻砂与小伙伴做的电子小说三部曲第一部,全集已经在13年做完了,正在kickstarter上募集资金做多系统和多语言的支持。想入正的话直接去kickstarter上支持比较划算(25刀入全集steam key,250刀送支仓冻砂设计的签名,死哗的钱真好骗……),另外本作已有官方繁体中文版免费下载(是的,你没看错,就在官网),百度搜索一下即可,有爱的玩家可以自行体验。

第一部剧情讲述的是离家出走梦想少年与数学奇才三无妹子的羁绊。全部流程没有语音没有选项,就是一本电子小说,有金融相关知识的话2~3小时就能看完。游戏中涉及的证券市场知识和《狼与香辛料》的经济知识一样,都是入门级别的。但是,妹子的人设和少年成长的剧情完全戳中了我这个业内人士的泪点,就算入了kickstarter包还要再买一份专门写评测。比较差劲的是结局的设计比较老套,从妹子帮忙搞量化交易程序少年被大佬亮瞎狗眼开始咱就猜到了结局……把全部身家加杠杆压内幕消息的人不叫“投资家”,叫“赌徒”。

对于有兴趣加入这个反人性行业的少年(女),咱在这里顺便推几本书几部电影,希望对你们有些帮助。
《反脆弱》《超越金融》《狂热分子》《世界如此险恶 你要内心强大》《投资最重要的事》《罗马人的故事》《交易心理分析》《Good Will Hunting》《Rounders》

最后,为什么一个退圈多年不追新番不玩GAL的人要写这么一篇评测?

因为……我也想要一个共同奋斗的数学奇才三无妹子啊!
没有的话……赫萝那样的也可以啊……

R妹送我的生日礼物,结果现在进包啦,就补个评测。

本作是早期少数登陆Sbeam的纯正日式VN,文本是狼与香辛料作者负责。不过也许是第一部分的原因,故事平淡无波,没有CV,立绘也一般般。

但有一个好处,作者是认真讲故事,而不是刻意卖肉买球甚至H来吸引绅士,这一点在现在steam的日式或者类日式VN里竟然很少见了。

日呆?当腻了。我现在要做一个有思想的日呆。

PS:月球炒股有官方繁中,免费的- -。

大概玩了一个月,10+小时的这个游戏,昨天差不多是一口气就把后半部分全部看完了。必须承认的是游戏剧情前期发展实在缓慢,外加是关于炒股方面的,而我又不太懂,感觉蛮无聊,有几次都想弃掉了。不过随着故事发展,即使你不懂股票,也会慢慢地被这个游戏所吸引,所感动。没有恋爱故事的那种美丽的画面和甜言蜜语,就是用那种朴实的语言来诉说着一个美丽的故事。主要故事就是讲述了在月球上现实的残酷,而男主和女主在这样一个环境下试图通过一起努力炒股来改变自己和别人的命运:当大家被残酷现实逼得走投无路时,大家把唯一的希望寄托在了男主和女主身上,就这样握着整个小镇居民的命运来炒股,可以说每一次股票的下跌和涨幅都令我随之紧张 。或许结局也是残酷的,但正如男主所说的,和女主在一起的过程是很快乐的。大概就是这样一个故事,可以说看起来很一般,但你会收获一份感动和一个感悟。我非常推荐这款游戏。
