À propos de ce jeu

C'est la fin de l'été. Han Hui, une universitaire, rencontre dans les montagnes une jeune fille mystérieuse nommée He Jia.
Après cette rencontre hasardeuse, les deux protagonistes s'embarque dans un merveilleux voyage.

Shan Gui est un visual-novel court, linéaire et cinétique qui se déroule dans les magnifiques Montagnes Violettes de Nanjing.
Il raconte l'aventure de deux jeunes filles pendant qu'elles visitent le parc, tentant de se rappeller des souvenirs d'enfance.
Han Hui est maussade et dépressive jusqu'à ce qu'elle se fasse ravir par l'enthousiasme et l'espièglerie d'He Jia.
C'est en He Jia que Han Hui arrive à alléger sa tristesse et qu'elle trouve une nouvelle amie... Une amie qui peut être bien plus que ce qu'elle n'en laisse paraître.

Ce Visual Novel est juste MAGNIFIQUE! ♥
Une belle histoire entre deux personnages qui créent une relation si belle... *-*

Je vous le conseil en solde (1,69 euros) car il se finit en une bonne heure, les 5 euros de base ne sont selon moi pas justifié malgré la beauté du jeu.

Le crédit est superbe, les extras font plaisir à voir et les décors sont justes superbe!

BUY THIS GAME FOR LOVE!

Pour une première incursion dans le monde des Visual Novels, je m'attendais à faire une agréable lecture assis dans mon fauteuil. Malheureusement il en fut autrement.

L'histoire est presque niaise, sans profondeur et ne va pas plus loin que la description d'un après-midi plat passé entre deux amies.

La traduction française (un bon point pour moi pour une initiation au genre) est désastreuse. Il y a des erreurs de grammaire à foison, des mots sont mal orthographiés et les tournures de phrases parfois incorrectes. Et je ne parle pas du côté littéraire et poétique maladroit qui rend la lecture difficile. C'est comme si Google Translate se mettait au littéraire... Je vous laisse imaginer.

Bref c'est court (heureusement), inintéressant, inégal et chiche côté graphique (30 à 40 backgrounds et 7/8 images pour les différentes attitudes de la jeune fille).

Je suis assez déçu par cette lecture et reste pantois devant toutes ces évaluations positives qu'elle a pu engendrer chez d'autres.
Je lui octroie donc un 3/10 justifié pour ma part quant à la qualité de l’ « œuvre » et le travail fourni…

C'est pas le plus beau, pas le plus intéressant des VN, ça se finit en 1h, il y a une seule route et le voice acting est loin d'être un chef d'oeuvre (bien que les voix chinoises, ça apporte un peu d'originalité). Mais c'est pas trop cher, mais c'est un VN traduit en anglais, et dispo dans le commerce. Je peux pas vraiment vous le conseiller (mais en soldes ça reste un achat envisageable), vu qu'il y a de meilleurs titres sur la plateforme (Dysfunctionnal Systems, Narcissu...) mais rien que pour le fait d'encourager un genre qui prend de plus en plus d'ampleur sur Steam (et pour son prix), je regrette pas mon achat.

For a travel guide, the sexual tension is pretty impressive!

Shan Gui is a really short visual novel (a visual short story maybe?) with lush artwork and beautiful music. Beautifully voiced entirely in Chinese, the translation isn't perfect but it isn't so bad that it becomes a distraction. The story is simple and engaging, and I thought it was interesting that the game actually links to wikipedia entries on the actual locations and lore mentioned in the story. I do use "game" in a loose sense here, because this is definitely more of a novel than a game. There aren't choices to be made, you just click to progress the dialogue through the linear story.

For the completionists, Shan Gui has strong Steam integration with super easy achievements and a game that can be completed in a very short amount of time. I didn't actually see the short story and lack of replayability as a bad thing, but I got the game deeply discounted and I feel like the content was worth what I spent. The extras include a gallery of the gorgeous artwork found in the game, as well as the soundtrack.

Shan Gui does really feel a bit like a travel and cultural guide though. With more panties and larger boobs.

- 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!

Sweet and atmospheric.

Be sure you know what you're buying (it's short, there are no choices, and there's no epic plot) but if you want to relax into a short story between girls it's a nice experience.

Distancing yourself from your parents is an unavoidable part of growing up. Eventually, most of us come back around from the rebellious phase and learn to listen to what parts of our tradition and culture may be worthwhile additions to our own identities. But what if we're already too late?

Shan Gui is a short, Chinese-developed visual novel about finding one's familial and spiritual roots in a society that increasingly shuns both.

During its one hour of playtime, the reader follows lost and disillusioned Han Hui on her way to revisit a vacation spot from her youth. She meets and befriends little He Jia, who guides her through the mountains and shows her around the various nature sites.

Let's get the formulaic part of this review out of the way first: It's a kinetic novel without any player choices or branching paths, the story is pretty unique in its thematic focus but extremely slow when it comes to pacing, the background and character art meets a high quality standard and retains a distinct visual style that I would not mind seeing more of, the soundtrack, relying heavily on solo piano pieces but branching out here and there, is nice (if ultimately forgettable), and the very authentic voice acting adds a lot of charm even though it suffers from the use of lackluster recording equipment.

Alright, now let's get to what makes Shan Gui actually interesting.

The textbook approach to structuring a story is to establish a setting and a premise, create some tension or conflict, then construct a dramatic arc that resolves the conflict and guides the reader to a satisfying conclusion. This curious little thing, however, does very little of the sort. Even though it uses the elements and mechanics of storytelling, its mood and deliverance probably have more in common with those of a poem or even a painting.

I can only imagine that the theme of modernization and technocratization of everyday life clashing with filial piety, tradition and spirituality might resonate with young Chinese people even more than it does with me, but at the very least it has the potential to speak to anyone (or at least anyone in a position to be able to play computer games), no matter their cultural roots.

Shan Gui handles its themes with care. It doesn't hide behind opaque metaphors, nor does it beat you over the head with simplistic morals. It simply puts you in Han Hui's shoes on her way to learn more about her past. It's up to personal opinion whether her quest is a worthwhile one, and it's up to interpretation whether she succeeds, and if there ever was a concrete goal to begin with. I was easily able to empathize with her struggle to explore her identity and I am glad to have witnessed this very personal journey.

The one negative aspect that really stood out to me was the sexualization of the main characters in some of the artwork, which is not only unnecessary but also completely at odds with the story itself. Maybe the developers assumed (correctly?) that those screenshots would increase sales, which is a bit of a depressing reality. In any case, I had to roll my eyes and grit my teeth through it.

In addition to that, Shan Gui unfortunately also ticks some other boxes on the "Bad VN" checklist. Still though, while putting my opinion into words I find myself thinking "Sure, there are embarrassing typos in the script that really should not exist in the age of spell checkers, but..." and "Yeah, the sightseeing web links in the middle of the in-game dialogue are pretty immersion-ruining, but..." and I just have this positive gut feeling about it as a whole. It seems like whatever it tried to do, it succeeded with me.

Many Steam users have yet to make their first contact with a visual novel, and I have to say that I can not generally recommend Shan Gui as a starter VN, simply because, for all intents and purposes, nothing much happens. So unless you specifically enjoy slow and meditative mood pieces, there's a decent chance you'll just find it boring.

Generally though, with the above caveats in mind, I'm going to take a bit of a leap and recommend that if you think it could be for you, you should sit down (preferably with a cup of good tea) and give Shan Gui a chance. If you're lucky, maybe you'll even learn something about yourself in the process.

-------中文评测见后-------
------Apologize for my poor English------
First thing first, Shan Gui is not a bad game. The main reason for this comment is that I think this game is overvalued, my mark is 5.5/10 (6 is a pass).
  • Story: 6/10. The story is sensitive, easy to recall the childhood memory, and the localization work is praiseworthy. However, the story is too short and lacking necessary links, which makes playing this game like switching different scenes and scanning different CGs. The writing style of Chinese version(the native speaker version) is too close to Japanese, that disappointed me a little.
  • Art: 6.5/10. A typical Japanese manga style, colorful and good backgrounds. But I think the art designer is not good at drawing people, especially characters in different ages and human body proportion.
  • Music: 7/10. Soft songs, and free OST for listening.
  • Voices: 4/10. I closed the voice when I hear the vocal of He Jia until the end, so this score is biased. As a leading character, the voice of He Jia lacks emotion, which is a big problem on GAL.
  • Gameplay: 2/10. No gameplay at all. Playing this game is a half-hour clicking without any choices.
To be honest, I do not recommend this game even though it is 50% OFF now. In my personal view, Shan Gui is much more like a short visual fiction( I had to wait another half hour after the end for the card!) than a GAL game and its high price makes everything worse. As other comments said, it is only recommended for card traders and perfect game seekers.

-------下面是中文评测-------
之所以决定入这个游戏,一开始是因为看到某位友邻的评测。之后到商店看了一下,觉得差评里无脑黑太多,所以决定玩一下看看。玩完之后觉得给个中评比较合适,但又回到商店一看居然是85%好评……所以给差评完全是为了拉评价以免让别人跳坑。

优点:
1.故事走轻小说风格,没大槽点(如果搞姬不算槽点),对一些人而言应该有种特殊的亲切感;多语言好评。
2.UI什么的很不错,精美细致;背景虽然是PS+参考照片但还是有一定的水准。
3.音乐还可以,轻柔舒缓的风格,平时也可以当工作学习BGM;而且不要钱。
4.全成就很容易达成,掉卡速度也能接受(虽然也挂了20分钟左右的机)

缺点:
1.故事太短,点点点的话十几分钟通关;剧情推进和转折都稍微有些生硬,莫名其妙的就通关了,而且灵异元素什么的……
2.我猜人设一定是个男的,不然画不出那样的萝莉。虽然上色技巧还ok,但是CG与立绘中的人体比例和年龄感实在是硬伤……
3.配音实在是出戏……妹子说了几句话之后我就怒关语音了(不好意思= =)。
4.有些细节问题啊……明明是国人做的游戏,简中版的男女NPC叫“男子”“女子”不行么?“Man”和“Girl”真是太雷了……

总体来说这游戏如果要是在10RMB左右还是可以的,5刀的定价未免太坑了;虽然现在在半价,不过我觉得买了也只是不亏而已,从某些方面来说还是鸡肋……只推荐给卡贩子、成就爱好者和没钱买游戏表情的玩家。

P.S.大概看了一下评价,感觉外国人民的评测虽然也很水,但认真写评测的的比例相对高一些(因为外国普通玩家不会特意玩这种游戏吧)。还有虽然不了解这游戏的制作者有什么问题,但我个人觉得只为了制作组就无脑黑也有点中二。

Sometimes "less" can be "more", and the simplicity of Shan Gui is what counts here in my opinion. The voice acting borders on average, the music is touching and the scenes are breath-taking. The plot itself involves a female tourist being guided by her mysterious friend (another girl) to real locations in the mountains. (Think "Go Go Nippon!" but in China).

The whole experience is like reading a short romance comic while listening to classical music in the background.

Personally, I can only wish that the friendship (relationship) between the two main characters was explored in greater detail. This can be somewhat of a disappointment especially for Yuri fans, unless the writer intends to make a continuation!

All in all, it's as short and straight-forward as a kinetic novel can get. There are no choices to be made to influence the story. Depending on how fast you read, you can finish the entire novel in an hour or less, at the same time, take in all the achievements with no effort. These factors may be pros for some, and cons for others.

Considering the novel's length and it's price (it's better when on sale!) then Shan Gui is a good deal.

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.

Well, this game came close to being your stereotypical, Japane4se over sexualization of teens, but it stopped just barely short of that, which I was thankful for. Anyway, basically, this was an interactive novel wherein the heroine was wandering lost after a life changin event (revealed later in the game) and comes upon another girl who shows her around the area they are in, visiting sites and teaching the protagonist how to deal with that life changin event in a way that made her feel some joy rather than sadness, and gave her a means of connecting with the world around her as well.

This one could have turned bad quickly with the aforementioned over sexualizing, but tey managed to keep it just within the lines of what can be considered acceptable, and it ended up being more a tale of sisterly love and coping rather than....well something more than that.

Very pretty backdrops with all the locations in the area the story is hosted, with real life places which some of the dialogue is wiki linked to (within the game) for your perusal on your browser.

All told, I think I give this a 9 out of 10 for graphics, and a 6.5 out of 10 for a story that almost makes you cringe....almost. If they had distanced themselves a bit further from that aspect, the story would have been more like an 8 out of 10.

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

"Shan Gui is a short, linear, kinetic visual-novel set in Nanjing's gorgeous Purple Mountain." This is the admirably honest description on the Store page, a kind of honesty not easily found on the official description.
First things first: a kinetic visual-novel is one in which the player can't interact with the (linear) story, so don't expect this to be a VN proper; in other words, this is not a game - rather, it's a non-interactive mixed-media experience, and a rather good one at that.

It takes about an hour to complete, more if going through the Wiki links (more on this later), and even more if you'll take your time to sit (sometimes quite literally) and enjoy some of the little... "atemporalities" (pardon me) it offers. The replay value is absent - because this is not a game, bear with my redundancy - but this doesn't mean you won't find yourself drawn to re-experience some of the aforementioned time bubbles.

The story may appear a little plain/slow to the Westerner's eye, especially in the very beginning, but it catches up quickly; on the other hand, those acquainted with the East Asian cultural sphere and its peculiar mindset will take great pleasure on the many references - some rather obvious, others less so. This is why I strongly suggest to break the immersion and check out the Wikipedia links provided in-game (and perhaps follow up on those when the story is over).

The translation is decent both in English and German, there are some grammar errors and there's a certain ingenuity in the choice of words, with some nuances irremediably lost in translation. Both characters display some degree of naïveté, however, which makes that ingenuousness somehow fitting. The voice acting is fine as far as I'm concerned; 'tis certainly not the best I've ever heard, but it serves its purpose well enough. Another reviewer said that "the protagonist is consistently lacking any sort of enthusiasm", which can hardly be denied - but, given the plot, I think it may have been intended.

As to the "art" department, I found the soundtrack remarkable, the sound effects rather good and their timing effective. The backgrounds are gorgeus, and most of them can be "visited" using Google Earth's street view; the artwork is solid, although some scenes have the protagonists overly-sexualised, and while I realise that some if not most will welcome such a thing, I found it rather out-of-place. An utter buzzkill, actually, although that's pretty much the only real downside I stumbled upon during the whole experience, and it is an understandable marketing (and cultural) choice. Thankfully such buzzkills are not that common, and they ultimately had little impact on my enjoyment.

What else can be said? The controls are smooth and so are the transitions; the game can be run in fullscreen up to 1920x1080; 16:10 isn't supported, resulting in movie-like black bands on the top and bottom - not an issue due to the nature of the product (as in, a kinetic VN as opposed to a game). I suggest using headphones for a better experience, if only for the cicadas and thunderstorm.

---

Did I enjoy it? Far more than I would've expected
Will I go back to it again? Yep.
Would I recommend it? Absolutely, and quite frankly I felt it was a steal at a 1,69€ sale, given that even with its shortcomings I'd still buy it at its full pricetag (4,99€), retrospectively.
But do keep in mind that this game is not for everyone, although I think I made that rather clear in this review.

I freaking love Shan Gui. This game is gorgeuos. It really touches my heart, not the story exactly, but overall aspects of the game.

The art and music are really beautiful. I was quite immersed in it in that short about an hour gameplay. I listen to the music of this game for quite a while. It is quite relaxing. I enjoy different scenarios of the game too.

This game is short. It does not dragged on unnecessarily. The story is innocent and beautiful as well as the characters.

The translation isn't that good though when I first play it. After the patch, it is better and I come play it again. LOL.

There are some funny conversation if you have a dirty mind. But please don't. Really.

What I like about this game is that it doesn't really have stupid fan services. I'm quite sick of those sometimes to be honest. There might be some parts in the game that people may consider it as a fan service, but I don't think it's for you guys. It's for Han Hui. XD. This game is quite bitter-sweet and innocent, it wouldn't go along well with the fan services. But I don't know the dev true intentions, of course. But for people who really crave for these things, at the very least, it's not the same old breast-planting-operation or accidental-entrance-to-bahtroom/dressing room-operation either.

This review is subjected to my own opinion, of course. As I can see I might overhype it a bit for some people. (Meaning, personally, I think Shan Gui deserve every compliment I give). So this is here just in case.

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.

This was such a treat, I couldn’t help but smile at the end. A simple, beautifully crafted story with an impressive amount of emotional depth and plenty of charming details. Do yourself a favor and make yourself some sweet (and I mean sweet!) tea while playing this.
