About This Game

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.

Pros:
- Bright beautiful art
- Characters are voiced
- Pretty soundtrack
- Visits some places in china which is interesting
- I liked He Jia she was very sweet and cheerful. Besides the art and music He Jia is the only thing I liked about the game.

Cons:
- Bad voice acting, Han Hui has no emotion in her voice whatsoever.
- This isn't really a con per se but you can't make any choices and there are no branching storylines.
- Again not really a con for everyone but the game is really short.
-The story is so simple that there is no interesting plot elements such as a conflict or event. I kept on waiting for something interesting to happen but nothing did.
-This games pace takes a leisurely stroll, very slow and no real plot elements. It reminds me a lot of "slice of life" animes. I love "slice of life" animes but only if they have some sort of impact or message, I felt this had none.

Shan Gui is only the 2nd VN that i've tried (i didn't like the 1st one i tried), & i thought it was fairly good.
It was very cheap ($1.50 on sale), & it's also on some "Easy 100% Perfect Games" list's that i've seen. So there's a couple of reasons to try it.

The story (which i won't go into), was cute, but nothing special. It did have a little (kinda predictable) surprise at the end though. It was a resonabe story, only lasting around 40min's, but it was a relaxing & entertaining 40min's. The story also had Wikipedia-Links for some of the more famous landmarks & legends mentioned during the story, which i thought was a nice touch, & helped give history & tourist info to the non-japanese reader/player (?).
The art was similarly adequate, but not awe-inspiring. Manga style still pics of character models were nice, but nothing flashy. While oil-paint type background pics, would show the landscapes mentioned in the story.

Overall, i liked Shan Gui, even though it had no direct player/reader (?) interaction other than clicking when wanting to read a new line of text, & advance the story. I'm not sure what the full-price is, but it was definatly worth the $1.50 that i paid. Even though it was under 1hr of play/read (?) time, i liked what i was given, & would even buy a sequel if there is one.
So if ur not sure about VN's, try this with an open mind & u might b as surprised as i was.

小清新类的游戏,估计还会出续集吧。
优点是配乐不错,整个画面也很漂亮,有特点!故事比较流畅,结束游戏还会有点稍稍回念。
缺点:情感共鸣还是少些,故事线应该能挖的再深一点,不能当做观光视频来做;男配的配音严重差评:(
算是国人出的优质休闲游戏,期待出续集!

Shan Gui is a visual novel where you click and you click and you read. No action done. You're a young woman, trying to find some childhood memories. You meet a young girl that will guide you through the park and mountains you're currently in.

The art is quite good apart that I don't really agree with the way the heroine's breasts are represented. You're under the impression that it's fan service. Else the rest is quite beautiful.

The soundtrack is also quite good and is also free.

So why should I recommend a game with so much dialogues? Because it's translated in several languages, that you have wikipedia links to explain your environnement directly in the dialogues, sending you on the page of the selected languages. Because the soundtrack is good. Because the art is good. But the story is also quite.... well.... going from depressing to joyful.

And while you get some extras in the game or cards or achievements, I can't let go of the fact that I didn't have a choice.

Bah, for the price, consider it as a nice interactive book.

This is game which you can complete in 5 min, if you have an keyboard with 2x Enter just press both fastest possible , if you have Fingers-Blaster you can try to Speed Run this game.
There is nothing much to say about this game, not interaction with the dialogue nor NPC, all you hear is some chinese voice acting, some music in background and you see some artworks with the NPC of the game.
For the price they ask is not much, you may wait for an bigger discount, It gets an thumbs up from me just because of the price and trading cards.
If you are an Achievement Hunter you already have this game because is an straight very easy 100% with no effort.
