The art isn’t the greatest, the system isn’t luxurious (there is nothing aside from the most basic of configurations, and no CG/BGM recollection), and the story isn’t long by any means. Being a tag-long release for comicket by circus, I didn’t expect anything that was high budget, so that was fine. What surprised me, however, was the great quality of the music and the nature of the story.
The game has no voices or vocal songs, but the BGM was composed with care, fitting into the atmosphere beautifully. I think that it’s by the composer who composed Da capo II and some of Narcissu, although I can’t be sure. There was a lot of it for such a short story, and I would absolutely love to get the soundtrack, although I’m sure there is none.
Unlike just about every other VN out there, this story doesn’t involve romance between the heros and heroines. Instead, it focuses on weaving a beautiful environment and touching interactions between characters. The story was presented in third person, with no name tags for the “spoken” lines, making it sometimes hard to decipher who exactly is speaking, although I think that people (such as myself) who are too used to reading VNs are a bit pampered in that regard, and a change of pace is definitely not a bad thing. It’s not an epic tale, it’s not an edge-of-your-seat suspense and it’s not a world changing allegory for the darkest parts of human nature. But, it’s a sensitive look at what is a little bit of all of us. A dreamer, a runner, a wonderer, appreciating the beauty of a bright summer day.
