About This Game

Meeting Semyon, the game's main character, you would've never paid attention to him. Just an ordinary young man with thousands, even hundreds of thousands of those like him in every ordinary city. But one day something completely unusual happens to him: he falls asleep in a bus in winter and wakes up... in the middle of a hot summer. In front of him is "Sovyonok" - a pioneer camp, behind him is his former life. To understand what happened to him, Semyon will have to get to know the local inhabitants (and maybe even find love), find his way in the complex labyrinth of human relationships and his own problems and solve the camp's mysteries. And answer the main question - how to come back? Should he come back?

I ended up really liking this game. The beginning was painfully slow however. Once you get past the slow beginning, it turns out to be pretty great.

I loved the art,both the sprites and the CG. Absolutely lovely. You can tell certain CGs are just copypastes of each other when it comes to which girl you pick, but it's fine.

Characters are loads of fun and unique. The overall story is okay. Even at the very end, I don't really know what happened. Good endings are pretty damn good. Bad endings are interesting. The special endings are great too. There's not much to say actually. It was great. I wouldn't mind more characters and such, or a similar game. AND IT WAS FREEEEEE.
So I recommend it if you like dating sims or interesting surreal stories. Other than the boring beginning and certain boring scenes near the endings, I think story was good, characters were great, and art/music phenomenal.


SPOILER:

Lena was always crazy. I ♥♥♥♥ing knew it. Her Good ending only brings MORE questions up. I don't trust her.

I don't really have words to describe this game, only that it was not what I expected... it was more. After it I've felt more alive than in a long time. Thanks to the debs for that amazing journey.

I've never written a review for a game on Steam (I honestly hate writing reviews so this says A LOT about this already.) before but I feel this VN truly deserves it. It plays with your heart in every single ending. Everything is there, from the emotional attachment to the characters all the way to genuine curiosity of why this is all happening. Honestly, this game makes me think of Undertale as well. The parallels are there, from having to replay the game to understand everything to giving you life lessons which hold very true in real life. (Even the "Flowey" type guy who seems like a loon but actually makes sense in the end.) I don't even know what else to say without giving more spoilers so I will say this, Everlasting Summer is a Hell of a ride through and through. Now I understand this game may not appeal to everyone, but, I beg of you, please, give Everlasting Summer a chance.

NOTE: I'm 19, trained in about 7 different martial arts, know how to use about 5 different weapons, can fight up to three people, or someone twice my age but there is NO WAY IN HELL I AM DOING MIKU'S ROUTE AGAIN. After her ending I didn't want to stay alone for the last two weeks. Hell, I STILL don't want to. Stuff of nightmares bro.

Great game so get it now. Besides it's free so nothing to lose. I would personally be happy to spending money on this game.

The story is interesting and even though some of the story remains the same it branches out near the end and some stories are completely different (for better or worse).

The characters also interesting and likable which can make the bad endings that much more painful but the good endings more rewarding.

Getting the good endings can be fairly difficult to get with missing 1 or 2 events leading to a bad ending and some events and choices aren't very clear as to why a certain choice is more preferred for a certain character. I guess one could just replay over and over but I just used a spoiler free guide.

I really liked the art work even though some sprites and drawings seemed a bit off but they were not too bad and some really nice ones made up for them.

The Price is amazing for what your getting because it's free but still well made and interesting.

Nudity patch need I say more... Actually yes I do, (since I had the patch since the beggining I'm not totally sure but) I belive with out the nude patch it just doesn't show a picture for nuce scenes (not just sex) which in some cases might look odd just staring at a dark screen with words of what the main character is seeing without actually seeing it. So I would recommend the patch atleast for those scenes. But the story is well writen enough to distract you from your quest to see nude girls (which in my case is really saying something).

For these resons I can easily recommend this game to anyone in the market for a visual novel dating sim.

I played it for a while, it was a really in depth story, but the whole Soviet thing threw me off, not saying I have anything against Russia but it was a major part of the game. And I was hoping to look for something that wasn't so childish. I would recommend this to people looking for a story with young adults in it.

I can't say that I have played many VNs in my life, just the odd few, so I can't really say how this game compares to others, but I can say that, for me, this is the most powerful VN I have played to date.
Sure, it might come off as very cliché at first, with all the characters you meet falling into well-established stereotypes, but this is by design rather than due to lack of imagination on behalf of the writers. The characters are the way the are because of REASONS and you will need to go through several playthroughs to understand why.
Luckily, when you play the game again after you finish it once, you can fast forward parts you've already read and just focus on making different choices and reading those.
Play it a few times, make different choices, get a few different endings... then go read a guide and learn how to get all endings. Trust me, it's worth it in the end. You need seven specific playthroughs to unlock all the content, trust me, it's worth it.

100/10, would cry and laugh again. The soundtrack of this game is forever burnt into my mind now.

I confess i got this game out of boredom and had no intention of actually finishing it but after playing into just the second day i was hooked and after doing several things and getting at this point 4 endings (2 of which with the same person) i can say without a doubt that this game is undoubtedly one of if not the best i’ve played. The character development and plot-twists are great at least the first time around but now starting my fifth time i’m still find new things and can’t wait to play the new game coming out soon.

Well I just finished playing the game after 10 hours straight. An all I can say is I feel significantly more insane then when I started. Each "lap" / playthrough will slowly grow darker and you will feel it take its toll on your psyche. In all honesty I can't say this game made me happy, nor can I say it was a fun experience. However I am recommending it. Why you might ask. Because it is extremely impactful and I will remeember for a long time to come. The inner dialogue of the main character mixed with the convoluted setting/story mixed with the drastic tone shifts leave this game as one of the most well writen VNs I've ever read.

TLDR: Play it now!!!! An play it all at once. HAHAHA.

P.S. M route at night bad idea.

The background art is amazing, but that's pretty much its good points. The story and character development were disappointing, so were the dialogues.
I would only recommend it to you if you have nothing else to play and you are interested in playing some visual novel for free.

I fell in love with Everlasting Summer <3
This is one of those games that after playing it at least one time, you get a wave of feelings just by listening the main theme. With such a clever story and ends, and even a kinda horror and meta touches, I would describe this game as the perfect visual novel, I can write a lot of great things about it, but to keep it short that is my opinion: The perfect Visual Novel.
You will get in love and depending of your choices your emotions will destroy you each time you play it. Just play it, even if you are not into VN, give it a try.
10000000000000/10
(PS: If that wasn't enough, you can download a patch to uncensor the game and get the <3 parts, as I said, perfect)
