@tennmuerti: I would assume this is something they are aware of, because this has been happening for over a week now. Been really, really bad.

I've heard multiple people complain about it, and now, before I post comments, I make sure to copy it just in case. Takes a while to post sometimes.

@bocam: This terrible video may give people a decent idea of it:

I was actually kind of amused by this guy's reactions since he has never played a VN (or pronounced Sakura before), but it gives at least a glimpse of how little interaction there is, even for a VN.

There are cat girl breasts

SAY NO MORE. SOLD.

ha. Well, google some better visual novels. There are plenty with cat girl breasts. This one is for all ages and lasts for only about a hour. It's a real ripoff taking advantage of many people's very understandable love of cat girls and breasts.

Did you actually buy this?

Fortunately not, but someone I know did. And after a hour with basically no choices, it was over. It's about as budget as you can get. Seems like all the money was spent on the artist making a few character poses and none on actually making a game.

(Sorry to disappoint that I didn't pick it up personally. I had a bad feeling about it, and unless the 18+ patch changes the whole thing, it seems like I made the right choice.)

@smackifilia: It's a particularly bad and short visual novel. Not voiced or animated with basically only one actual choice. Some fanservice with no actual nudity or sexual content. It's appropriate for all ages. There are cat girl breasts, but you're better off looking at deviantart than wasting your money on this.

There are far better visual novels for your money, and if you're looking for weird anime porn games, it's not even that.

If this artist plagiarized Sounas, then Sounas almost certainly plagiarized some other cute monster-themed games. As others have pointed out, he seems to have taken direct inspiration from other past games in the genre.

And to me, that's okay. I don't think Sounas plagiarized or the artist of Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake plagiarized. At least, not from the comparisons being made. These are all people working in a very similar, simple style, but that they seem to be riffing off of one another is not plagiarism. If I made a cute monster-themed game, I'd probably look at other cute monster-themed games, and frankly, the result might even have some apparent similarities like this.

Clearly the artist of this new game got rather close with the island and skull, but Sounas is kidding himself to suggest that he somehow owns the vision of a generic island shape like that and evil skull mountain. He does have reason to make it clear that he did not work on the game, as I wouldn't have been surprised to hear he had, but in my opinion, this artwork does not appear to be plagiarism. As an artist, I get why it might bother him, but he should recognize the difference between strong influence and plagiarism.

@psychopenguin: Technically, "Jimmy pick up the pepper grinder!" was interpreted as "Jimmy picks up the pepper grinder." Which is more of an observation.

Apparently, commands have to come with verbs first. So, "Pick up the pepper grinder" or "Put down the toy giraffe" or "Kill me please".
