Bug Fixes PLUS New content added to the soundtrack DLC

Hello, Folks

We fixed some glitches that were preventing some players to understand one of the possible endings. Somewhere along the road, a great deal of dialogue went missing in 2 of the 5 endings. ALL 5 ENDINGS are working properly now.

Also, we just added the in game loops to the soundtrack DLC available on the Dark Arts Edition. They can be really good to listen while reading comic books.

Enjoy

Interesting story with interesting twists, turns and reveals.

Many different choices which leads to many different out comes.

Really likeable.

Only sad point of the game is that it is too short and and the story supporting pictures need a bit of more work to make it even more interesting and realistic.

One would play it more then one times for sure.

Choices matter much more than Mass Effect.
11/10 would make a better choice next time.

Well, there have been quite a few well documented issues with this game that persisted for way too long, such as the white screen loading issue. I am happy to report that this has finally been addressed with what I believe was a new programming team if I understand things correctly.

Anyway, I was pleased to finally be able to play this game, and it was actually quite enjoyable, so in this case, it was well worth the wait. It's an interactive novel presented in comic book fashion, with the page frames and such. The artwork is quality. You would expect to see this published by a larger comic company if it was in paper form due to the excellent artwork and coloring. The story was also well written and engaging, and in fact, there seem to be many variations on how this tale can play out, so it carries a choose your own adventure style to it as well. You start out with some very basic RPG options which impact your choices later. There aren't upgrades or anything....whatever you choose is what you stick with, although your choices may end up adjusting some of the stats as part of the story.

There are some issues with the actual script itself, such as poor sentence structure at certain points (much like my writing here in this review, lol). It seems like English may not have been the original language for this script, and the translation was solid with just a few blemishes. Anyway, nothing major, but you will notice it when you read through the text.

The OST was quite nice, and appropriate to the theme of the game as well.

All told, I think I give this game an 8 out of 10 surprisingly, and I would encourage people to read the more recent reviews when making a determination as to whether or not you might purchase this game, as the technical issues that caused a lot of the negative reviews have been solved at this point.

The art is great, the characters and background images are beautifully done. Unfortunately this game really short, even with a couple endings, and the save system is not as handy as common visual novel games that allow you to save on certain points such as when you need to make a choice.

Overall I enjoyed my time in-game. I recommend this game if you interested, but try to wait for a discount. Me myself get this game for free on giveaway. You might want to wait for that to happen again.

Goethe's Faust reconceived and redesigned as a visual novel. The story is actually quite good and the replayability is high, due to a number of meaningful choices that affect the game flow and ending. For some reason, the story is much more immersive than most visual novels out there.
Visually, the game is ok and the graphics are fine, but the story and the diea itself is where it shines.
