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?

Absolutely amazing VN! I recommend this to any and all VN readers, but beware, if you plan on reading it, be prepared to spend a good bit of time getting all the endings, and trust me, you want to get ALL the endings. After getting the "secret" endings, I found a whole new level of appreciation for the depth and intricacy of this VN. 10/10!

9/10 - Masterpiece

An excellent and well written free visual novel. Takes about 7-8 hours to beat, and 30-35 hours to see everything.
The game is made by a small russian team named Soviet Games, and the russian influences are apperent in the game aswell. The english translation is incrediably error written, but only in terms of the grammar. Personally I only found about 3-4 lines that were unreadable due to not being translated at all. The game also contain quite alot of references, some probably only noticable if you are a native russian.

The game keeps a good balance between plot and character development, though this might not be very apperent if you only play it once. I recommend that you experience every ending in order to get the full experience.

This was actually the very first visual novel I have ever played, and is easily worth paying 10 or 15 euros for.

Overall a very fun, interresting and enjoyable journey that I would recommend to anyone looking for a good visual novel.

How anyone gives this "game" a thumbs up is beyond me . It is the most boring "game" I have ever seen .. I actually fell asleep for a few minutes while doing it. Cannot actually call it playing . If this is example of russian gaming I really feel sorry for them . I am so glade it was free and now gone from my library .

I just finished the game about 2 minutes ago and so i'll try to organise my thoughts in this review.

So..Everlasting Summer. Wow.

Soundtrack was great! The music creeped me out when it needed to and had me smiling at the right times.

Storyline was good. I really can't wait to replay it! There are so many other options I want to try. And so many questions I still want to ask.

Characters where interesting. Apart from one annoying person later on..I really wish I could find out more about the characters!

In summary I really enjoyed playing this game. The first third was the most fun i've had playing a game in a long while.

(This is my first review. If you found it not helpful, please let me know why so I can improve for the future)

It's deeper than it looks. I thought it was a generic dating sim but it's got some twists. I spent about ~30 hours to see every route, and that's thanks to a guide.

Frickin amazing. great music, and I liked the different art + beautiful backgrounds that were used throughout the game.

Characters are a bit shallow here and there, but push through it and you'll find those interesting twists show up.

bad pun: How I learned to stop worrying, and love Miku's route.

Protip: Don't forget to see the DLC after all the routes, via Settings -> Mods -> One Pioneer's Story
Edit: Just found out Soviet Games made 2 mods: http://steamcommunity.com/id/dreamtale-kun/myworkshopfiles/?appid=331470

To sum this VN/Game up in one word: AMAZING. And you can't beat the price. I've paid a lot more for a *LOT* less. While I used a guide to find all the endings ( after the first couple I was 'hooked' ), just seeing all the endings in this is worth the time and effort. Not to mention how all the story lines are tied together in some way. Each one gives you something to think about after you finish it.

So download! Start playing! If you like VN type games: you won't be disappointed. Not to mention bunches of 'choices'. And those choices matter in one way or another.

Bravo Soviet Games for a great read, really great artwork, your time and effort on this and especially for putting up for FREE!

Not a huge fan of visual novels, but this one is pretty good(maybe because it's free?). It has a really neat story and not a ridiculous amount of pointless(keyword here) sexuality and obnoxious Jpop everywhere. The writing is on point, with a decent amount of decisions to make throughout.

Edit: Wow, so I've completed a few more endings, and just wow. These endings are all over the ♥♥♥♥ing place and just simply amazing!

The game is really good. It has both beautiful art and story.
Yes, I was surprised by the storyline -- scenarists put a lot of details, which you may not notice for some time, but which make a great payoff at the end, especialy in Semyon route (hint: don't miss it!).
Character's personalities are well written too, however you will not know them all, until you play few times :)

So I really recommend this game.
I was waiting a whole year for the summer, to play it in "right season" and it turned out to be worthy game.
