User Review Information
Fantastic translation for a lovely game.Reviewed By: grey123 on 15 Jun 2019
I absolutely loved playing through this game. It was unlike any game experience I’ve had thus far. It was like an RPG without all the random encounters and battles. All it involved was exploration and talking to people. What a refreshing change.
You really get to know the people within Ihatovo City, and dare I say, you begin to care about them and the workings of their lives. How marvelous that a game can do that.
All in all, I really enjoyed the game and am glad I had the experience. It made me want to read Kenji Miyazawa’s stories, and I recently bought a couple of collections of his stories. I can’t wait to read them! I have a feeling that the game faithfully reproduced them.
A couple pieces on the game well worth reading:
