Относно тази игра

It was the end of summer, a pleasant smell floated in the air. Two girls whose name is Han Hui and He Jia met in the mountains by chance, and they had a wonderful journey which belonged to themselves.

Shan Gui is simple, and flat. It tells you a story between two girls, they walk in the mountain, for whole afternoon. It’s not hard to understand, just things of our life, with some lost, some confusion. Han Hui is a common girl, and He Jia is also a girl with happiness, althrough she is not set as human. Who comes with sadness, finally get cured by a happy girl, that’s the story we want to tell you.

In the game, you may find most scenes are from Purple Mountain, Nanjing, and if you have a chance, please visit this mountain, there’s nothing fantastic, nothing mysterious here, just a quite and simple life.

When I was making the game, I tried to walk in Purple Mountain, sometimes I could feel the girls passed...

Maybe they are really living here? I believe that.

- Gorgeous artwork
- Great soundtracks
- Sweet story
- 100% achievements for one playthrough
- Achievements are so cute! (Well, I bought it, because I wanted to decorate my profile with the achievements.)
- Emoticons are also cute!
- Trading cards are beautiful!

Shan Gui is a 45-minute visual novel game. Too short for the price in my opinion. Better get it when it's on sale if you can. Voice acting is not so good. Anyway, I have such a cute Achievement Showcase, so I'm good!

VN's are hit and miss for me. Shan Gui was a miss.

The background scenery was fantastic, lovely screenshots. Character art, not so much. Music was good. Voice acting, not so much. The English translation was definitely subpar, worse than most, which is a problem in a game where the only gameplay is reading. It's linear, no choices. Add in a weak plotline and the fact it was over in 45 minutes, gives you the recipie for a game I can't recommend.

On a more positive note, it has cards, some decent profile backgrounds, and it's an easy perfect for achievements. If I had sold the cards, the game might have paid for itself. The problem is, the cards and achievements are where the game's value is, not the game itself.

I'm digging VN's, and I approach each one I experience with an open mind. I can overlook some short commings, but sadly, Shan Gui just isn't on the level of something I can recommend.

I purchased this as part of a bundle, it was on my wish list for a while but I didn't buy it directly because frankly I wasn't sure what to expect from this title. I have so many games and reached the point where I agreed not to buy any new ones until A - I had completed or at least tried a lot of the games I currently have or B could justify buying it. A bundle had 2 or 3 of my wish list games on so I had to take that chance.

That being said I still had no real idea what to expect from this title as I installed it. I decided to just jump into it, and I'm glad I did.

In simple terms this is a Chinese story of a girl (Han Hui) who decides to visit areas of her past (for reasons explained in the story that I do not want to give away), and upon her journey she meets a wonderous child (He Jia) who claims to be local and aids in Han Hui's adventure. Through their adventure which lasts only a day they help each other with their problems and become very close, though through it all not everything is as it seems.

I really don't want to give the story away so please forgive the basic description. Just know that if you like Chinese fables, beautiful scenery with well drawn images, don't mind slightly broken English and have a few hours spare then this is worth a try.

The translation of Shan Gui is Mountain Expensive....which leaves me puzzled (about the expensive part). I know some Chinese so I double checked but found it to be true. Still, that isn't something to be put off by.

Additional Note - All achievements are easily received. 7 come from the story and 1 comes from watching the credits. So if you are an achievement junkie then rest assured you will 100% this.

This is a mixed review:

There are a number of reasons to recommend this game:

* You can 100% it in a couple of minutes by holding 'Space'.

* The card drops sell for a good price. (Why? See screenshots+below)

* If you find pleasure in lesbian erotica you chose the right game.

* The artwork is pretty.

Apart from that, there are some negatives:

* The game is a strictly linear Visual Novel. No choices are given.

* The dialogue is mostly tedious.

4/10

This is a Kinetic Novel, what that means is that it's a visual novel without any choices (in other words pure novel) play time depends on your reading speed, expect about 1 hour out of it. For ratings.

Story and Writing: 9/10 (It's a good slow paced heartwarming story and the English translation was well written)
Character Art: 9/10 (Best I've seen in a 2D game)
Environment Art: 7/10 (Subpar 2D environment art, but on par with indie VNs. However 3D environment art is great)
Ambient & Soundtrack: 7/10 (Nothing special, but good enough to not be a bother)
Voice Acting: 5/10 (The chinese voice actresses did well enough, but they had very low-grade recording equipment)
Overall: 7/10 (The most important parts were all done really well, the biggest flaw here is that the novel was short)

I can recommend it to anyone who likes to read a good story, but if you're expecting multiple endings or some action this isn't the right place. It's well worth it's 5$ price tag, and many might prefer 1 high quality hour over 4 mediocre quality hours of narrative. Despite how short it was, I was satisfied with the ending.

I really enjoyed the story, but the visual novel is quite short. I would recommend picking this up during a sale, to short to recommend at full price.

Shan Gui is a kinetic visual novel, so expect it to be wordy with no true "gameplay". Like the description states, Shan Gui is flat; there are no choices or decisions that alter your ending, thus having no "replay value" either.

The engine, as most visual novels, is Ren'py, so expect a familiar interface; quick load/save, load/save files (not really needed), text speed options, skipping seen text, auto text and a speed option, etc.

As someone who has played a large number of visual novels, and I prefer them to be kinetic anyhow, I can't recommend this VN. Despite buying it 50% off for $2.50, the thirty minutes I spent reading it (and there after leaving it on for the trading cards) I can't say it was worth my money. I felt dissatified with the, like many said, "childish" ending. Sure, Shan Gui had it's sweet moments, and a relaxing atmosphere, but I couldn't bring myself to like plot. It wasn't as "touching" as I hoped, it wasn't really touching at all.

The music is great and the CGs are wonderfully done, though some may not appreciate the art style (like one person said, "dorito eyes"). However, there definitely are some inconsistenciess. But that's not what bothered me. I felt that some moments of the story were ruined by the sexualized art. Han Hui, a college student, does have noticeable affection towards He Jia, a girl that appears to be around 12 or 13. Somehow what seemed to be innocent in the text itself, with the images, it gave a that vibe Han Hui had a sexual attraction towards her. The CG of He Jia in her panties (actually there's...two), didn't help with that. It felt awkward, if anything.

The voice acting in Shan Gui is a nice addition, despite it being a bit muffled at times. Han Hui is unfortunately monotone throughout, but He Jia is done rather nicely. Voices can be turned off if it bothers you. And as others have said, the translations are somewhat poor, but there is going to be a patch later on, redoing the translation. The wiki links provided in the text is nice though, providing background information to what many people would not be familar with.

The other extras are pretty nice though.There are trading cards are worth around $0.60 cents a piece, and you get 3 of them for just buying the game. There is also a free OST. And like most said, getting 100% in achievements is extremely easy, just play once and watch the credits in the extra menu.


Shan Gui isn't a bad VN by all means, but it just wasn't for me. Even for a $2.50 price tag, it felt a bit steep for the 30 minutes I wasted, and I couldn't get myself into it. The game suffers from some minor inconsistencies, translation errors, and quality of the voice acting, which might bother some. But it might be worth a shot for those who would like a short, relaxing, sweet visual novel.

Interesting story and great graphics, but the quality of both the voice acting and texts just detracts from the overall feel too much.

Short and sweet little kinetic novel. The background art is gorgeous and I really enjoyed the music. The voice acting is passable but not very professional (you can hear a lot of breath pops). The story is relatively simple, which is good because the translation is iffy throughout. You'll get a lot of lines about hearing the "chirps" singing in the mountains or the protagonist's backpack, which is apparently "full of shenanigans". I appreciated the wikipedia links in the text as well, filling in references that a Chinese audience would presumably have understood.

Unfortunately at this point I'm going to have to say I don't recommend it to a broad audience. There's no interactivity in a KN, so it's not for everyone, and with the awkward translation and unfortunate art (with the protagonist's rocket boobs and the lovingly rendered and completely unnecessary image of a 12 year old's wet underwear).

However, if you're familiar enough with the visual novel scene to ignore those issues, this KN is a nice way to spend an afternoon.

Pros:
- Sweet story
- Voice acting
- Nice OST
- Steam trading cards

Cons:
- English translation could use more work
- Voice recording quality could use more work

Note that this is not a 'Make your choice' VN. It's just a graphic novel.

Unfortunately I cannot recommend it as a better translation would make the novel more enjoyable, unless you're in it for the cards.

A key thing to remember while playing Shan Gui is that it’s purpose is to, for lack of a better word, sooth.

The events of the story are fairly simple and down to earth: it’s essentially a simple tale of two very different but complementary characters, who both have vastly different views of the world (I appreciate that this shown in its own time, so the characterisation of neither feels forced). The bulk of the story takes place over the course of a single day, barring allusions to the main character’s past of course. The heaviest part of the story is the discussion about the idea of familiar ties between family, and how these ties are often not as secure as you would hope. Another important theme is the idea of a person’s ties to a location, and the especially the childhood memories of such.

Basically, if you go in with the correct mindset, the mixture of calm music and for most part ordinary events can be impressively soothing. It’s like a kind of escapism, but escaping to a charmingly simplistic trip around a mountain.

For the subjective points:
- Both of the two main characters are likeable, and in certain cases relatable. I think the lack of other major characters (there are only two other characters in the game, and they are only around briefly) actually works in favour for the game; the trip feels more intimate and personal for it. I also like the communication between the two mains.
- The artwork of both the backgrounds and characters are pretty good, however the character art especially might not be for everyone.
- The lack of choices is NOT necessarily a problem for me. I think it works well to establish a definite character for the POV main character; however I understand some might have a problem with it. For what it’s worth, the path it leads you on is well paced.
- The fact the two main characters are fully voiced lends them some presence, though the voice acting itself might need some work (see below).
- Length is definitely subjective. I personally don’t mind that the story is somewhat short, since then it never outstays its welcome, however you have to decide whether the quality is worth the cost.
- General atmosphere of the game is successful in its goal to be calming.

More definite problems I had with the game:
- Translation REALLY needs some work; it’s never enough to fully take you out of the experience, but the translation is pretty rough in some places.
- The voice acting is unfortunately pretty rough in some places as well. The main issue I have is that the main character’s voice actress sounds to be using a dodgy microphone.
- I think the twist (it’s nothing huge, just a little twist to conclude on) at the end could have been handled better.
- While I get the hyperlinks are mostly just in case you’re curious about the location the game was based on, feel like they take you out of it a bit.

Overall, I feel like Shan Gui was defiantly worth the price of admission. Its calming atmosphere and likeable characters defiantly make the experience, and for what problems the game has it makes up for it in pure charm.

I haven't played/experienced it much, but so far I'm pleasntly surpised. Being a chinese visual novel, I was a bit thrown of track when I heard the first speech lines. Expecting japanese and hearing chinese. But, that's okay, nothing wrong with that.
Although, there's one thing that does annoy me and that's when the voice line starts with a different word then the translation. For instance "Thank you" (in the speech as first part and in the translation at the end)

But, there's an option to switch voice off, if needed.

Anyway, Shan Gui is a very nice visual novel with nice artwork and okay voice overs. There're some small production errors in the recordings like mic blows, but okay, who am I to pick on that?
I would say: "Get it while it's on sale."

SUCH MUCH ENGRISH. SO GOOD. GRAMMAR IS FOR GREAT SUCCESS!!!


I would recommend this title for anyone who has a good grasp of the english language and who wants a good laugh.

More serious review to follow later, maybe. I had to stop playing due to the fact that I nearly fell out of my chair laughing at some of the more memorable phrases. Oh and the achievements are pretty amusing too.
