Om dette spil

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

Fantastic artwork and music along with an extremely touching storyline.It's a very short game (~40-45mins),but it is one worth buying for sure.I just hope ther'll be a sequel which will be even better and longer than this one.

This is my first visual novel so I'm not sure how much my 2 cents are worth. I'll keep it short.

Pros:
- Really well drawn art, both in backgrounds and character design.
- Relaxing music
- Auto function with no additional choices (this is both good and bad)
- Jia (the little girl) was very likeable, the girl who did her voice acting was pretty decent. Her playfull personality came through in the sound.

Cons:
- While the art was really good, I feel there should have been 3 times as much art in both backgrounds and character poses.
- Voice acting of Han (the girl you play as) was terribly done, she talked with the same tone the entire time with no emotion what so ever.
- The sound of the voices is terrible. it sounds like it was recarded from a laptop that's 15 years old. Even without a studio a proper microphone could have made a world of difference.
- Auto option with additional options/choices, while this made the game relaxing it does feel a bit like a ripoff when advertised as a game. I simply sat in my char doing nothing but read.

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.

I admit, I kind of have a thing for visual novel games, and when this ended up in my backlog, I decided that I was going to just take a bit of time and a snack, and just experience it for my own.

It took an hour, and the snack went untouched.

This has got to be one of the best visual novels I've ever seen, to tell you the truth. It's not one you just sit down and keep tapping the button to get through; if you do that, you're missing out on a really amazing story of a college student trying to recapture some memories of her past, while meeting a strange young girl that seems to know exactly where she's going...

I won't go any further into the story, because I refuse to spoil it for anyone else. It's been on sale all this week (10/24/14), and if half-off the price isn't enough to get you to try this thing out, well...

I've only run into two problems with this visual novel. The first is that it's over too blasted fast- you'll find yourself hating the fact that the story will be over that quickly. There's maybe an hour to seventy-five minutes worth of playtime in it, but it's still worth it. The other problem is that the english translation can be a bit rough in places, but it's not really that big of a deal. You can still understand wgat the characters are trying to say very easily, and to be quite honest, these are both very minor nitpicks that you can ignore quite easily. There's no serious bugs, no crashes, and nothing really to worry about.

To be quite honest, if you enjoy visual novels- blazes, if you just enjoy good stories, period- you're going to play through this and love every second of it.

This short story falls mostly into the Chinese fantastic genre but it's quite touching on a deeply human level and that's something you don't see very often.
The author managed to say so many things and convey so many feelings with so few words, it left a deep impression...well except the ending which was childish, maybe the author is very young or maybe tried to make the story more understandable/appealing to a western audience.
Not counting the last scene, i found the story surprisingly deep and touching.
Never tried a visual novel before but I'm glad i picked this one as my first attempt, i somehow doubt this kind of depth is standard in a genre that seems to center mostly on anime.
A pleasant surprise, xie xie to the authors.

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.

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