    Well, I wouldn't mind it too so there's at least two of us. :] 
    The art can look a bit mediocre when you just look at screenshots, but the expressions and variety in visual design make it much more enjoyable while actually reading the VN. I think it does a better job of communicating the story than some "objectively" prettier games and this is something I feel few people ever talk about. Good stylizati9n can make a huge difference, especially with limited resources.

    Make it 3
    And I also super agree about the art bit. Something I love in those indie games is how stylish they can be.   And since it is a visual novel, visuals are important!! And Marco and Shira are nice in the visual department.

    5 stars from me ☆☆☆☆☆
    Personally I wouldn't call the visuals good in a general sense, but they are above average tier for an EVN. I like being able to romance both genders and platonic friendship endings are a big big yes from me. It's something I'd love to see more of.
    idk if anyone else on the planet would tho... 0.0

    Zander reacted to Ramaladni in Hajimete no Okaa-san - a misunderstood gem   
    Hey, I'm happy that you're showing this much interest. I've played a couple loli eroge, mostly from Tanuki Soft, but those are closer to the standard eroge with vanilla/happy sex, although in one of them I was surprised by how the route progressed. Unfortunately I can't exactly call myself an expert, although this wouldn't be the first eroge I've playedwhere a choice to reject sexual advances results into a premature/bad end. The main difference is how this novel tries to take itself seriously with believable drama, and tries to approach certain topics outside the scope of the norm.
    Yeah, I can agree about the game trying to seriously portray the consequences of incestuous relationships (and well, paedophilia). As time went by and Chii's pregnancy became harder and harder to hide, the fears of being found out by the school, the neighbours, their family and the public in general. The protagonist was often debating over what was the right thing to do and what would make her the happiest, but in reality he too was being afraid of his crime being exposed. He fully well realises that what he's doing is morally or ethically wrong (and the game doesn't forget to tell you this a couple times).
    The second premature/bad end ends in a similar fashion to the first:
     
    There is a lot of H-content but I wasn't really in it for that. Often it did help advance the narrative, but I was happy that it didn't elect to simply fix issues through sex, something common in eroge.

    Now, this is very interesting to me. I've never played lolige before because it is not within my interests; I usually shy away from most VNs with a lot of adult content anyway. I assume you have played VNs similar to this one? Is being able to refuse sexual interaction a common choice? 
    I suppose I am mostly wondering if this game is trying to have any sort of social commentary on single parenting, incestuous relationships (or the even more taboo father-daughter relationship, I suppose), or if the majority of the focus is on the H content. You mentioned that the reader gets to witness Papa's internal monologues, for example; how far is this delved into?

    Okay... Suddenly Musumaker doesn't look that bad an- okay, yeah, it kinda does.
    Let me ask you, Ramaladni, about the first end where Papa refuses to give in to his dark desires, is this considered a "bad end"? How is it handled?
    Nice review!

    You could consider it a bad end or a normal end, depending on your perspective.

    Zander reacted to Clephas in Otome game writers   
    One thing that bothers me is that, precisely because they are written by men, the majority of otomege that catch my interest end up with DIDS (Damsel in Distress Syndrome) patient protagonists (which I hate like the plague).  A few I have played or tried to play managed to escape this poisonous plague (Sanzen Sekai), but it is as ubiquitous to the otomege genre as the 'average guy/idiot who somehow forms a harem' is in charage.

    How ever did I remain unaware of this marvelous piece of literature until now? I not only applaud you but also thank you for the laughs.
     
    Additionally, I have privately messaged you my hospital bill. Maggiekuma's brief speech made my eyes bleed as much as my fictional counterpart's ears.

    Zander reacted to Zakamutt in Dawn.   
    tbh the issue is so transient that any motions I'm not already taking (for example, I'm attending a university program which I feel is constructive and will probably get me both a job and daily interaction of some sort) are wasted effort. Literally it felt better once dawn ended and morning began, and that's basically just waiting 'til nature decided to turn the brightness slider up a bit
    you've been memed, boi
    probably
    The ending was definitely a meme since I actually felt better after writing the thing.
