He’s not a large, hulking, disgusting squid like you’d see in some kind of weird hentai. Instead, he is very small and cute, with tiny little tentacles and large, inquisitive eyes.

Shirley: Will you love me forever?

More than Forever

Before I played the full version, I played the website version. When I finished it, I thought the full version would be awful. I then played the full version. New characters were introduced and the story improved a great deal.

Length: < 10 min

Link: http://vndb.org/v13166

Story: Two students read a book and comment on it. The book is about a familiar tale; you may have already heard it before. The whole game is kinetic and nothing much happens. Hearing the comments on the book they read was great but there was not much to the game. I would have liked the story to go on longer, but it just stops.

Characters: We didn’t see the characters for long. The students were fine and realistic. The book characters were awful, but that was the point.

Art: The character sprites, both the students and the book characters, were good. The backgrounds were fine too. It also featured chibis – they were done quite well, with a good range of expressions.

Audio: Background music and music stopping for dramatic points was well used. Some of the music got annoying but that may just be my preference.

Other: Nothing much for extras. Good standard Ren’py.

The overall look of the visual novel was great. When I recognised the story, I was laughing so very much. Their trick caught me and made it a worthwhile read. However, I would have liked a bit more to the story. I give this a score of 6/10. It is worth reading if you have the time and if it is expanded further, maybe by exploring other trashy books, it could be improved.
