Okay so initially I was really unsure about this. I was tempted to give it a miss altogether. However I tried it out and ended up really enjoying it.
- choices are a bit more broad than I expected, not only can you choose different dialogue options but you can also choose where to go to or to avoid certain locations
- getting to an ending only takes around an hour, but surprisingly if you go back and take a different path a completely different kind of story can unfold

So I actually achieved three different endings. First I gave the robot away to the police, that made the game end very early on, and it was kind of lame.
-----But then I started again and avoided notifying the authorities. This time the story went for much longer. Choosing between your love for your girlfriend or the robot was a prominent theme. At the end of that play-through the bad guy was apprehended, the police conveniently let the robot go, nobodies heart was broken and everybody basically lived happily ever after. It was a bit too sweet for me (okay it gave me a nice warm feeling inside lol). This ending gave me new information about the mysterious robotic woman but only enough so that it actually created more unanswered questions.
-----At this stage I had more time to play, so i went back again. I actually didn't really find more out about the robotic woman's background. In fact most of the main characters that took part in the story in my second play-through were put aside and didn't feature at all once I got to about mid-story. The game took place in a completely different location with a couple of new characters instead. There wasn't really any romance this time at all, it was more Sci-fi with a touch of horror. Some scenes were the same but it was overall quite a different experience.

Obviously the game is very simply presented with still inanimate backgrounds and characters. But I liked how the game looked visually. The only problem I had with the game’s visuals was that occasionally you could see more of the character images than you should have. What I mean by this is that sometimes they are raised above the bottom of the screen and you can see that they are cut off where they should have legs. It wasn't a big deal but it was sort of an immersion breaker.
-----All the dialogue is voice acted. I thought the protagonist’s dialogue was done adequately. Some of the characters spoke a bit slowly and monotonously. It seemed like they weren't as good, perhaps because it was the same voice actor attempting to create different sounding voices for a variety of character. That didn’t really matter though. I really liked the voice of the protagonist's girlfriend, she sounded really convincing when she was angry.

Okay so I recommend trying this game out. There is actually a demo version. If you check out the community hub you will find information about acquiring that there. You might want to take a look at it before purchasing the full game. I found only three in endings in about two hours time. But the game allegedly has twenty-four alternate endings in total. Hopefully this means that for the $10 price there is enough unique content to satisfy people.

Really enjoy Bionic Heart for number of reasons. It's fully voiced and if you don't like that you have the option to shut it off. You are given multi choices which in there own right feel reasonably different that leads to different endings. Some are good and some are bad. So it's not happily ever after with everything you do. Even if you don't want to find all the endings yourself Winter Wolves has a guide to help you in the forums. Really enjoy a lot of Winter Wolves games hope they keep coming out with them on Steam.

What is Bionic Heart?

Bionic Heart is a visual novel from the renowned studio Winter Wolves. It is set in the future. A robot escapes its facility and flees to a top programmer at Nanotech. The novel has 24 different endings, each one gives a Steam achievement.

The graphics are nicely done, but for me and other people I talked to there are too few artworks for the characters, meaning the only take so few positions during the game. The backgrounds are fitting, but mostly not a really spectacular sight. The artist however is not to blame since the setting of the game doesn't play in beautiful places but in a - dsytopian or just realistic? - future.

The music is nicely done, an only downpoint is that - if you go on a certain path first - you get minorly spoilered about one character by noticing the voice also is robotic while the protagonists don't seem to notice it yet. Since you have to go a very specific way this is a minor issue, but there still could have been "normal" human voices to the bionic robotic protagonists since nobody in-universe seems to notice them by their voices.

The story reminds me very much of "The Outer Limits". There are all kinds of endings - some depressing, some uplifting, good and bad, and a spectrum in-between. Many times, several protagonists' fates remain unresolved, but by replaying the game one can sometimes get an idea of what happens to them.
There are two or three logic flaws in the game, noticeable when you replay. For example in one scene something happens which if you take another choice doesn't happen, although the people involved in making it happen shouldn't act differently at all.

Due to engine limitations, it seems not possible to bring up the pause menu if you play with a controller, but as it is a visual novel, a controller is not superior to a mouse anyway. I just feel like this should be mentioned. There also seems to be no way to visit previous scenes, so one should save often.

If you like either visual novels or science fiction, you are right here, even more so if you liked The Outer Limits. An asking price between 5 and 10 Euro feels right for this game.

I like the interactivity of this title being able to move around and the branching paths depending on how you interact with the game, However the story didnt grab me personally and some of the art just seemed a bit off.

So while personally I didnt find the story grabbing I do recommend it to those who may like this sort of Sci-Fi Love Triangle story

In Japan, 《Bionic Heart》will be called "galgame".Galgame is a special kind of games.Most of them contain a story about love and beautiful ladies and many awesome pictures created by professional painter.Galgames are visual novel with beautiful pictures.Just click the button of choice and read the story to continue playing the game.It is so eazy that pretty of otaku love this kind of game
《Bionic Heart》is a visual novel game.The story set in the future about the relation between human and robot.i dont talk about it too much because the story is short but very interesting.maybe a bit scary.The story has 24 different ends,depend on your different choice.you can play the game again and again till the achievements are all unlocked.In my opinion,the story is very awesome and i recommand you to read it.
The graphics are not great. The artwork of characters is not enough.Lack of dress style and the experssions of different emotion.The backgrounds are good.But compare with the galgame in Japan,the quality of 《Bionic Heart》 is not high.And i dont like the style of the picture,is not very beautiful.The style of Japanese galgame is better.
The voice is pretty good.They act the characters successfully and make the characters real and different.I love the voice of Tanya, between the robot and human voice,it is pretty nice.The music is just not bad.When i play the game,i will open Windows Media Player.
The game key is from indle gala,it is very cheap.If you like visual novels,you shouldnt miss this game.the story is very good.just 200m you need to download.I recommend this game.English voice is different from Japanese voice.it have another feel.
