Acerca deste jogo

It is the end of summer. Han Hui, a university student, meets a mysterious young girl named He Jia in the mountains. After this chance meeting, the two embark on a delightful journey.

Shan Gui is a short, linear, kinetic visual-novel set in Nanjing's gorgeous Purple Mountain. It follows the adventure of two young girls as they tour the park, attempting to recount faded childhood memories. Han Hui is moody and depressed until she eventually becomes enraptured by He Jia's overwhelming warmth and happiness. In He Jia, Han Hui finds respite from her sadness and a brand new friend... a friend who may be more than she suggests.

To the two trolls who keep downvoting my reviews for no reason, you must have a really sad life.

Ever since the olden days that have slowly passed in the wake of the ever changing times summer still held a special meaning to them as they gazed as they gazed outside at the world often, spreading endlessly beyond the horizon which seemed to invite them to an adventure like none they have experienced before. Giving in to the impulse to find some relief under the blazing heat might just seem like a small annoyance while wandering around aimlessly, making the choice of turning back seem attractive enough to consider setting aside what one came for, not worrying about it anymore as the difficulty of modern life occupy the present once again. But sometimes, even while not understanding why, taking a step forward becomes the point where one finds themselves attracted to another, and through the passage of a single day experience the joy of a lifetime.

It is quite the pleasant surprise that from the moment we start this novel a beautiful landscape spreads out before the eyes, from the open fields of a hill lined by trees on the side to forests covering trails and stone passages moving through the sights we are meant to see, with only the presence of nature around that makes it feel as if we are the only ones in the world. These photographic backgrounds are of much higher quality one would expect from an indie game like this one, though sadly the ones that show abandoned buildings ruin the atmosphere, as they ill fit to the place shown there which is a little distracting, even if not overly so. The artwork on the other hand is very well drawn, reminiscent of water colored painting with vivid colors covering the canvas that really depict the moments of this story quite nicely, with only the slightly strange looking eyelids standing out in a less than desirable way, thereby making the graphics satisfying to anyone.

Another great aspect of this game is its soundtrack made of atmospheric songs that play many different kind of instruments, a few being more prevailant while others less so, but notwithstanding their sometimes lacking impression due to their shortness it's still a collection of pretty nice tracks. The title track in particular is excellent to enjoy while relaxing in the shade of a tree, with perhaps a wind chime moving gently in the breeze on a late summer afternoon, until the time of parting despite our reluctance knowing this moment might come ever again. In that regard, its simplicity makes this a well composed album not far apart from other doujins.

It's also similar to Go Go Nippon in a way that Shan Gui also shows a less known side of a culture we rarely get to se with a hint of mystical presence that lends itself easily to the course of the story. Notwithstanding how all the reference to locations open up the relevant wikipedia page instead of introducing them on the spot like Overdrive's tour guides do, this is still a pleasant kinetic novel worth giving a chance to, as you might find something precious along the way you didn't expect to see.

In the end, after experiencing the last moments of a journey which transcends the boundary between this world and another where we feel at ease, it is sometimes difficult to tell if it really happened or it was nothing but an illusion. But even so, it's alright to wish, isn't it?

Short, linear, requires no action from part of the player (or should I say reader). Charming story that I liked to read. Very enjoyable experience.

Shan Gui is a short kinetic Visual Novel with gorgeous soundtrack, lovely voice acting and incredible artwork in general. The game had everything needed to be good game but, sadly, it isn't.

The plot development lacks consistency and the characters also lack a good background story, being like empty shells. It's simple... poor. To fill this emptiness, the developers tried to sexualize the romance between the characters for the sake of the fanservice, which made the whole plot even more forceful and empty. Besides the pretty backgrounds and relaxing soundtrack, this game has nothing else to offer.

TL;DR: This game is ♥♥♥♥
I pressed play after my friend got this for me as a joke gift for about 20 cents.
I was greeted with a ♥♥♥♥ visual novel that I literally finished in 5 minutes by clicked through all the text.
This is the most ♥♥♥♥ game I have ever played, just read a ♥♥♥♥ing book for god sakes and don't buy this weaboo cringe "visual novel". We know people just want it so they can jack their chodes off to some ♥♥♥♥ softcore porn of an anime girl playing in a lake.

0/10 didn't 100% because I don't want to go back into the game in fear of vomiting, got 7/8 achievments, thanks "Magenta factory".

edit: I got the achievment from some guide. Thanks now I can finally kill myself

Very nice, short, kinetic visual novel.

Its story about girl, coming back to location she used to visit with her family as child. Looking for past memories and clues to her feelings.

Drawings are just beautiful and whole thing feels very different from japanese VNs.
I wish there were more chinese VNs

I was attracted to Shan Gui by the art, but while the art doesn't disappoint (apart from the protagonist's bust size, which I agree looks weirdly huge, and also appears to vary from scene to scene), the rest of the game does. The original voice acting was poor quality, but the dev was aware of that, and rerecorded it with much better quality... except for He Jia, who has something like 40% of the voiced lines, and still sounds lo-fi. I have no idea whether there are plans to fix that.

The story, which ought to be the best part of a VN, is just a couple hours of a young woman revisiting scenes from her childhood, making a new friend, and learning a little more about her father after his death (plus one scene that's almost entirely innuendo and feels completely out of place). It ends with a small twist that adds an element of the supernatural, but I don't feel at all bad about spoiling that becase it's foreshadowed from the start with all the subtlety of a boot to the head. Overall, it's decently well-written, but too lacking in conflict to be all that interesting (even internal conflict, which would fit with the game's theme - the protagonist strikes me as aimless rather than conflicted).

I don't regret having taken a chance on it since I got it in a bundle, but I came away from it feeling that the art was the only excellent part of it, and I can't recommend it on that basis alone.

This is quite a short visual novel. It's one of those kinetic novel! (No choices)

There's not much to it, you can expect at most 30 to 40 minutes of reading.
The story is short, and quite a bit developed.

Pretty backgrounds and relaxing soundtrack, but other than that this game has nothing else to offer.
  • No story whatsoever (main character basically walks around a park and cries a bit )
  • No story means no character development
  • Whatever story that's left is full of cringe-worthy cliches

  • Also, unattainable chest sizes just like no matter how pretty this game looks it will never attain any real value

A Sweet & Relaxing Visual Novel With A Good Piano Solo. Although It Doesn't Have A Long Story, But It's Good & Worth It.

It Has Nice Background & Drawings Overall (Compared To Other VN), But The Voice Acting For He Jia Has Difference In Quality (?) Compared To The Other Characters.

Anyway, Can't Wait For Your Next VN. Cheers !

I cannot recommend this as a game.
Shan Gui is a kinetic novel, which means there is no player interaction whatsoever aside from advancing the text. In that regard it is okay-ish, but nothing memorable to write home about.

The story, if you can even call it that, is very short and if you're a fast reader you'll be done in about half an hour, which I guess is okay for a 2 EUR game.

Overall the art is consistently solid, though the characters do tend to squint in the stills. The females are also overly busty, which I think doesn't fit the mood (sweet yet slightly nostalgic) of the story at all and was probably only implemented as eye candy.

But the backgrounds, oh boy, those are beautiful and among the best I have seen in any visual novel to date.

Sadly I can't say anything about the voiceacting or music because my sound system is AWOL.

the artwork are amazing, nice BGM and pretty good story despite it's too shallow. the only thing that made this game bad is, the CV, the voice werent that good, its like the voice actor blows the mic everytime they speak or they record it with a cheap karaoke mic and i think there's some misstranslation in some dialogue and also thre's some miss placed dialogue or delay between the dialogue and the voce during the transittion. despite of those bad things, the price is reasonable.

Shan Gui is the first Visual Novel I have ever actually played and I got it from a friend, It wasn't what I expected from a visual novel there were no choices to be made it was just a click to read short story with beautiful art and music though I felt the character art didn't really match the scenery art most of the time.

Pros:
- Beautiful scenery artwork
- Very calming soundtrack
- Short and easy to follow story
- Hyperlinks in game to Wiki pages so you can get additional info about where parts of the game take place and the history of the area.
- The game has a better options menu than many more expensive games you would expect to have good options.
- The game is avaible in a large selection of languages.
- Steam Achievements/ Trading Cards / Low Price

Cons:
-The character artwork didn't feel as detailed as the scenery and the exaggerated breasts on the main character on the steam page lower your opinion of the game without actually playing it you would think it was something else.
- While short is nice it may be too short and while talking the scenery or characters emotions could have had a bit more variety, You get descriptions of things off in the distance but don't get to see them from the characters perspective unless they go there, and even then you see it from the perspective of them being there not the view they described.

Overall as the first visual novel I have played I would give Shan Gui an 9 out of 10 aside from the very small details I mentioned above which don't really take away from the game I can't think of any flaws with the game, The artwork and music are both beautiful and the short story was very sweet and I really enjoyed it. I definitely recommend this game at normal price, even more so if you can pick it up on sale which it goes on often.

A pleasant, short game, that feels like a peaceful moment with tea and a good book where it rains outside. The story was short and uneventful, but still it was a good read. Characters were cute, and i liked their voices. The music blends perfectly with what's happening and its very pleasant.
Worth giving a shot.

there may not be any romantic routes or any choices to be made in this VN...
but let me tell you the PRO's of it instead!

*nice music
*chinese history/mythology
*cute characters
*enjoyable storyline


just because there's no romance it doesnt mean you should steer away,
play it and you'll see. i also recommend buying the music DLC. :)

Shan Gui is the story of a woman who returns to the Chinese garden in hopes to awaken old memories from childhood as she struggles to find peace after her father passed away.


+ Quick playthrough (2 hours)
+ Badge requires only 5 cards and 3 will drop throughout gameplay
+ Easy 100% achievement completion
+ Fantastic graphics, poetic stories and overwhelmingly cute characters
+ Also, great soundtracks! (which are offered as a free DLC)
- Slight translation errors, but not bad enough to be unpleasant


I give Shan Gui a big 10/10!
