I only played the free episode, but that was enough to determine this is absolute tosh. I think the writer might be a spastic 16-year old hopped up on dubbed anime and pocky who thought he could make something with his friend on Deviantart. I truthfully have no basis for what's going on in the story, because there are absolutely zero character foundations, so little world building that it was actually less interesting than the TV cut of Waterworld, and writing quality on par with a crappy RP Livejournal from 2003. I think it's obvious the game isn't going anywhere good when the city is named "New Jessica." Yeah, dev, like she'll date you now.

There's a difference between avante garde or esoteric writing and plain garbage. Pretty obvious where this one falls.

109 MB, ~30minutes, lots of text, it's SciFi, it's free, recommended.

Yes, it's a visual novel, you have about 3 branching points that don't change the story much (it either ends quickly or progresses onto the same timeline quickly), it is set in a cyberpunk future, and the art and writing is decent but not outstanding. It feels more like the start of a novel than a short story, but even for that the characters and the world lack that certain something to draw me in and keep me wanting more. That said, generally the world building, the plot and the characters and their interplay are solidly done, so with more practice or the right editor, the writer could easily move up from "decent" to "good". Pretty much the same goes for the art, it is decent, and "free VN" cheaply made, and judging from observing webcomic artists develop, give the artist a few more years to hone and develop their style, they could easily move up from "decent" to "good".

Despite the aforementioned weaknesses, I did enjoy playing this VN. It's free! Recommended.

I wish there was a "neutral" option for Steam reviews. I don't recommend this game, but there is clearly something here that many people like if the mostly positive reviews are any indication. Read this review for my pros and cons if nothing else, and decide for yourself if you'd like to try the game as a demo-esque experience. While I am aware negative reviews garner many "not helpful" votes despite their content, I hope that there are players that do find my commentary helpful regardless of whether they agree with my points or not, and hopefully constructive criticisms will lead to the upcoming paid content from this developer being of a quality that potential fans can enjoy.

Invisible Apartment is a free "demo" of sorts to introduce players to the universe that the developers have created, in an attempt to generate interest for upcoming releases of what I assume will be a series of visual novel games in the same universe. I am a fan of visual novels, cyberpunk atmospheres, and of the dystopian genre in particular, so I was more than willing to give this a shot.

What Invisible Apartment does well is its atmosphere and artwork. It is refreshing to see such colorful environments in a dystopian game. It is apparent that the story behind the game has potential; it teases substance and intrigue, a corrupt government and civilian uprisings.

The problem with Invisible Apartment is...everything else. The writing is particularly unpolished. It honestly reads like a high schooler's writing project. There is no shortage of mispellings, grammatical errors, or sentence structure issues, and when there is a mistake on nearly every page of text, it feels unpolished, unprofessional, and simply not anywhere near ready to be released to the public. This game is in dire need of an editor.

There are also transitional issues (abrupt scene changes, for example), some sound issues (music stopping abruptly), and some odd miscellaneous gameplay issues (clicks not registering, blank screens that make it appear as though the game is over when it is not, etc.). While the story is clearly held dear to the writer's heart, none of the characters are well fleshed out, ideas are bluntly told to the player (or skimmed over) rather than introduced as relevant concepts that the player should care about (and think about for a time after the game has ended), relationships between characters are shallow and come out of nowhere, and the reasons behind the government doing corrupt things are not realistic or interesting in the slightest, and basically boil down to, "well, this guy is pretentious, so others have to suffer." It's the type of black and white thinking that turns possible brilliant storylines into the clichéd and forgettable because it has no basis in practicality or reality.

In summary, Invisible Apartment plays like a visual novel "outline" for a writer's possible upcoming novel. Nothing has substance, nothing is terribly interesting, and everything is rough around the edges. While I can understand releasing this for free to generate public interest for paid content (and thus sacrificing a bit of quality), I also have to take this at face value for what it is and how it is presented to the public. For being a released game, it is terribly unpolished, and story-wise, I feel like this needs to go back to the drawing board to be fleshed out. If the quality of Invisible Apartment is indicative of what we can expect from the upcoming paid chapters, I highly doubt I'll be sticking around for the rest. If the developers released this mostly to listen to feedback and suggestions, I believe they have a decent start, but they have a long way to go in terms of writing and gameplay before even thinking of a paid release. Invisible Apartment shows potential, but unfortunately, potential doesn't make up for its glaring flaws.

EDIT (PLEASE READ): The developer responded to a thread about my complaints:

Indeed, this is just a taste of what is to come, a small piece of a larger arc. He had a little mistake of not specifying this, so hopefully he'll change the store description and maybe fix it up a bit. Click the thread link for a more in-depth explanation from the Developer. Hope you all enjoy this game, but realize there is more to come! This is merely a demo of sorts to keep you interested. I still highly reccomend this title!

This is my first Visual Novel, and probably only Visual Novel I'll ever read. I got into it because it's a Cyberpunk Visual Novel, being the Cyberpunk junkie I am. I wanted something in a Visual Novel that wasn't about harem and hentai. So if you wish to start getting into Visual Novels that don't throw anime boobs in your face, this is certainly a good one to begin on.
Honestly, I had a negative review earlier when I finished the game. I loved this game, but the issue I had with it was the fact that this is unfinished. There is no ending. The plot builds up until it suddenly says "THE END" and being a fan of this Visual Novel so far, I was quite disappointed. But I realized the following points:
Is it a bit short? Yes.
Is the ending unfinished and completely abrupt? Most definitely.
Is it free? Yeah, it is.
Does it at least entertain you throughout? Yeah, it's a fantastic story and premise.
Not only that, but the developer is also going to be releasing the prequel to this game called "Invisible Apartment Zero" to Desura on March 17. Will it come on Steam? Maybe. Maybe not. But if you think this game is too short, realize that the developer is active, and there is a good chance he'll be continuing Invisible Apartment and hopefully end it the right way. (Or until we bug him to.)

hmmm....this was actually pretty cool as far as VN's go. Nobody was oversexualized...rather than do that, this one actually focused on a story exclusively (shocking I know). The story itself is along the lines of many movies and books and such that focus on an over regulated future world where the gov't sees all.

I thought this was a great first installment of what is intended to be a 4 or 5 part series.

The graphics were nice, the writing was good (although somewhat rushed at parts), the story was interesting, and overall it was an enjoyable way to spend a half our or so. It's also free, so it's an easy decision to give it a try.

I think this one shows promise for the series as a whole, and individually it probably merits about an 8 out of 10. I'm curious to see what comes next (it ends on a cliffhanger).

Let's not dance around the point: this isn't a very good game.

However, it has the potential to be: it has quality art and decent sound. The only thing needing work is the writing, which is less than ideal for something that purports to be a visual novel.

The writing is rushed and rough, switching between scenes suddenly and quite often without an indication why. At times, it explains nothing, while other times, it dumps info on you. It's incoherent, and doesn't appear to have had a pass for formatting, presentation and grammar.

It looks like a first project, and that inspires both hope and anger in me. Hope, because I think the ideas presented and the storyline feebly attempted are worthwhile, and can be salvaged. Please, read some tutorials, practice more, and then revisit this - I really think it deserves it.

Anger, because the visuals are quality. It's above-average in places, good in most, and even great at times. As a writer-programmer without an artist, it's sad to see art like this so callously wasted by sub-par writing and bad UI.

At this stage, I cannot recommend it, apart from having a quick skim-through for the ideas presented. If, in future, the writing is improved, I will adjust my opinion - I certainly hope I will get that chance.

Beautiful Artwork + Interesting Story
But only a few decisions to make.
Entertaining for about an hour if you check different choices,
and totally worth trying since it's free

Free game I know, but as the creator seems to be charging for future releases (first release being the teaser), I'll rate it as if I had paid for it.

The writing's amateurish and requires proof-reading. Some of this I'll attribute to the creators being Italian; the issue might be the translation only. Characters as a whole feel as if they're built slim; they lack a unique voice to the point I had trouble telling the characters' dialogue apart. The traits also seem misapplied. Our protagonist is a hacker who doesn't play a role in a hack other than walking around. Her A.I. companion does all the digital work, yet fails to spot an obvious missing link in a database join. And in order to make certain a scene happens the mysterious guy she meets turns out to be a stalker if the right choice is made, before the point he would have any motivation to do so.

There's funny dialogue, some of which are spoiled by translation issues, and there's rudimentary scene-setting moments. The character growth I saw mentioned in a couple reviews, and the reason I'm trying it out, isn't there. In a half hour's worth of reading, about 3-4 days pass plus indeterminable time while Bunny's unconcious. The "growth" between the protagonist and maybe love interest is boiled down to about half an hour of conversation split between a few days. She goes from scared of him to wary of him to trusting within a five minute conversation.

Beyond writing:
This teaser only has 2-3 choices in total. Basic mechanics are fine. The artwork is probably the best reason to play the game, and I expect is the main reason for many good reviews. Setting is a bit glitchy if you have any knowledge of IT; the setting as a whole could've used more setting up.

My Conclusion:
From what has already been shown, I don't hold much hope for the following titles. Don't recommend. But hey, it's free. So give it a shot for yourself.

Invisible Apartment is a free novel game that have a span life of 15 minutes more or less. You're Kacey, a young girl that hacks to survive in a world that seems not to want her alive. Will she be caught or will she meet new friends?

The story is an introduction to the universe developers want to set with Invisible Apartment 2, though there is a prequel with Invisible Apartment Zero. While it's not the writing of the year, the plot is enough to make you want to play the other games. Everything seems unreal by moments and it could be a sign that the one behind the story can't focus on a single idea, however, I suppose that everything will make sense by playing the rest.

You have to make some choices, though several paths can lead to the main point of the story and the rest is ending your little adventure - in other words, bad endings exist too.

The soundtrack is nice enough and the graphics are quite pleasant and colorful.

For a free game, well, you can try it, it's not hurting.

I generally don't get the appeal of non-pornographic visual novels. They don't reach the visual level of comics, the writing of novels and their actual gameplay percentage fluctuates between 0% and 1% so they are not actual games either.

However, even by the low standards of visual novels this was underwhelming. Everything about Invisible Apartment is amateurish from the subpar writing to the generic japanime-style graphics.
On the topic of story-writing: can we get a single cyberpunk story that isn't about hackers and AI? Yes, Neuromancer was great, we all loved it but that was more than 30 years ago and maybe we could find a different kind of story for once?

Yes, I'm under no obligation to play this but with all of its obvious flaws and shortcomings I'm not obligated to give it a pass either just because it's for free (the first fun-sized chunk at least). If you don't like visual novels this won't sway your opinion and if you do like them I think I could recommend a couple of books and graphic novels that you will get much more out of.

It took 18 minutes for me to explore this game fully. I don't imagine it'd take anyone more than 30 minutes.
There is not enough content to recommend it, on the other hand it is free so you might as well see what you think...
On the gripping hand, there are two more parts that have been released if you are willing to deal out the cash.

This. Game. Is. F---ing. Slow. I swear to god, I hated this game because it took forever. Every time I lost, the game started me back at the VERY beginning, and the game is LONG. If you're looking for a movie, story, or neat writing, this is the game for you. The story is pretty basic weeaboo class stuff: Very weird to the point it's interesting, a few hot scenes, realizing it's cringe because it's anime. I only hate this game in my opinion, but if you're a sloth with no life who burns time like your parent's money, this is your game.

6.3/10 - Short Introduction to the Invisible Apartment Series

Honestly, I almost gave up after the first 5 minutes when I realized the story takes place in "New Jessica" and used to be called "Old Jessica". It's like they ran out of time with the name or they were so foreign they thought this was a good city name... no. It's not. The game can be completed in about 30-40 minutes tops; and serves more as a preview to the paid sequels.

The story, however, got much better and really exceeded my lowered expectations. You follow a young hacker in a futuristic world that has little freedom left. There were some unexpected elements that kept me really interested and now I must buy the sequel to have my questions answered.

Invisible Apartment 2 is the conclusion; and Apartment -Zero is the prequel detailing how the protagonist got into hacking. I'm much more intersected in the sequel but if that goes well I would be inclined to purchase the remaining title.

This one is short but FREE; so I would definitely check it out. Other games are about $7; but are promised to be longer in length so I will definitely pull the trigger and let you know how it is!
