@RecSpec: Never7 is fucking terrible except for one route. Remember11 is not.
I really wish I could find a copy of this
@RecSpec: VLR and 999 have a lot more in common with Remember11 (Remember11 is also Uchikoshi's best story) than Ever17.
I like you.
i can't read this because i really want to play/read this, but may i ask how you went about getting the VN?
Blick Winkel is in VLR.
In 2012 I bought more games than I had any previous year. From cheap steam games to old PS2 games at the used bookstore to holiday shopping deals, I ended up with a ton of games I didn’t have enough time playing. So for the first part of 2013 I’m trying to get my money’s worth out of these games. So yes, The Pile is a backlog blog. Also, a metaphorical pile, I have shelves. This week I’ll be talking about Ever17 ~the out of infinity~ from KID. (Note: I changed the title back to what it was originally going to be, because opinions). I learned about KID and the Infinity series after finishing Virtue’s Last Reward. Well, not so much about the Infinity series, just that they were games like this. Not completely sure about the whole series, but I know that Kotaro Uchikoshi (writer behind Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Virtue’s Last Reward) was involved with this one. Given how much I loved 999 and VLR, I decided to give the Infinity series a try, and Ever17 is the one that came up the most, so I figured why not. It turned out to be a fantastic game, and I’d highly recommend it to people that liked VLR and 999, it’s pure visual novel, no puzzles here (well, there’s one really simple one). Everything boils down to choosing dialogue options. If you haven’t played those and want to start with this one, just know that the game requires you to play it multiple times to get the most out of it. It has the benefit of starting a certain sections of the story (broken up by days) and the fast forward function, so play through it a couple times, then use a faq to figure out the right choices for the best ending. One wrong choice can lead to a bad ending, which should be familiar for fans of 999. The reason I started with the recommendation is that I’m going to go more in depth from here on out. There will be full spoilers from Ever17 of course, and some spoilers from 999 and Virtue’s Last Reward.
