SeaBed Review

Neko's Shiritori

Zetsuna’s back, this time with SeaBed! Thanks to Fruitbat Factory for their hard work localizing this title!

A one-off kinetic novel project from doujin circle Paleontology Soft, SeaBed is the tale of childhood friends turned lovers, Mizuno Sachiko and Takako, who have now been separated by some strange circumstance that neither can recall. Enter Narasaki Hibiki, the friendly neighborhood psychiatrist (and also another childhood friend of Sachiko’s) who takes it upon herself to bring some clarity to the situation. Together but also separately, all three go about their daily lives in the heyday of the late 1980s as they inch closer to finding out just what happened.

Visual novel & other stuff impressions

Seabed

SeaBed offers a fascinating and thought-provoking story about dealing with loss as well as lots of subtle mysteries that may not be apparent at first glance, but you’ve got to possess an iron stomach for extremely descriptive, dull, mechanical prose and ultra slow pace to truly enjoy it.

Yuri Visual Novel Review: SeaBed

Floating into Bliss

For full disclosure, I played this game using a free review copy provided to me by Fruitbat Factory.

Seabed is a yuri mystery visual novel, developed by Paleontology Soft and published by Fruitbat Factory. It primarily focuses on the story of three women as they go about their daily lives. These women are Sachiko, an introverted lover of books, Takako, an energetic woman who rarely thinks before acting, and Narakaski, a childhood friend of the two who meets Sachiko again as a psychologist. The central thrust of the plot is Sachiko’s grieving after Takako’s disappearance. From there, the story unfolds.

[Video Game/Visual Novel Review] Lionheart

Another insightful review from Moonlitasteria, this time for our new RPG release Lionheart!

Moonlitasteria

With 2017 already fulfilling its unspoken promise of delivering a deluge of delectable games I will probably never be able to finish, it does become difficult to limit my commitment or even outright pass up on a particularly interesting find. Smaller projects especially seem to have this hold on me. Lionheart, a visual novel/RPG hybrid developed by doujin circle Shiisanmei is a fine example of one that is engaging, but a joy to come back to between play sessions. Players take on the role of Leon, a young man dreaming to be adventurer. After a chance meeting with a young woman named Maria, she enlisted his unique abilities to explore the Magic Labyrinth, “Libra Corridor.”
