A VN by 'key' and one of the leading VN developers in the world makes a VN that will make you cry at the end, assuming you actually cry because this is VN are by the same people who made Clannad, Air, Kanon, Little Busters (All great VNs and animes). It does show its age (this VN was made 10 years ago) when you play the game and the 'save' function isn't great either, you only get 5 save slots, so you have to overwrite your saves quite a lot.
The story is set in the future after the "failure of the Space Colonization Program". It is a post-apocalyptic novel involving only 2 main characters "Mr. Customer" aka "The Junker"
and Yumemi Hoshino aka the robot
. There is no "choose your on route/story" in this VN, its a direct story with no choices.
As you'd expect, this a pretty old VN, so graphics isn't its strong point here. It has basic drawn images and the animation is limited. Though the visuals are not the great part, you can still enjoy the VN with what is offers. Final Score: 5/10
This is a VN by 'key' we are talking about, of course its going to tell you a great story. I have never read a VN by 'key' and said "I was disappointed with it". All their VNs are nicely told, it often gives you tears, but that’s part of the experience. Expect to cry in every VN that 'key' makes.Final Score: 10/10
Another strong factor here. The music and soundtracks are possibly the most satisfying thing you will love about this VN, considering that it is over 10 years old. I still have a hard time trying to figure out how they managed to make all these soundtracks, they are absolutely fantastic, even though half of them where very sad to listen to. The only downside is that there is only a few of these soundtracks.Final Score: 9/10
The VN offers simple controls, press "Enter" to read another line, press "Spacebar" to hide the text box etc...nothing complicated there. The features are also very simple, since the VN is pretty old. It goes the same with the overall layout. Here's and great tip,
tilt your head left or right in the title screen and be amazedFinal Score: 6/10
Probably the most common question when buying anything is "Is it worth buying it?". If you like light romance and sad stories. This is your best bet. You won't regret your choice, it was made by 'key', so you know it's worth it. At £7, this is a pretty cheap VN already, considering there are other VNs out there that cost more and has less stuff to offer. This is definitely worth your time and you shouldn't worry about spending too much on this. Final Score: 10/10
