Sunrider: Liberation Day (VN-hybrid game review)

After a relative success of freeware VN/strategy hybrid Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius the game’s developer, Love in Space, made an ambitious move – as one of the very few EOLVN companies before or since, they made an attempt to expand to the home of Visual Novels itself. To achieve this, along with the Japanese version of the first game, they’ve released a sequel, Sunrider: Liberation Day. Armed with Japanese voice-acting, Japanese theme song and extra amounts of fanservice, on March 2016 it boldly launched its conquest of Nippon and became one of the most amusing chimaeras in the history of the OELVN scene.

            Setting the slightly-absurd “Japanization” aside, Liberation Day is still a sequel of a well-known and, for the most part, respected game, that did much to promote visual novel formula in the West and to this day remains one of the best VN “space operas”, especially among those officially released outside of Japan. Does it stand the test of time as well as its predecessor?

I'm not sure if this one will ever get a sequel... And if it does, I REALLY hope it will start from the DLC scenario, not the main campaign ending. Seriously, f*** that ending. :wafuu:

And yeah, when I wrote this VNs on GoG weren't a thing yet, I will add it now. ^^

And Loren isn't all bad, it's a good VN, just a really poor RPG. Later WinterWolves' games are much better in this respect. :P

Well I suppose that make sense, the first game ending was kind of ahem.... :makina:

However at the very least its free at both Steam and GOG but prefer the GOG version since I could store the installer on my Flash Drive and play it on our office heheh:wahaha:

Yeah ever since Loren The Amazon, they've learned a lot from it and eventually improve their games, they even produced a expansion of Loren The Amazon, I somehow forget the name... Season Of The Wolves has somehow decent RPG gameplay compared to Loren also it does have a DLC too so I guess its successful to some extent...

Try checking games from SakeVisual! Although their latest game seems to be a otome... 

Anyways keep up the good work! Looking forward to hear more of your EVN reviews! :mare:
