Any of you ever played AIR?
I'm guessing I'm halfway through the game since I played 5 hours through it, but then again maybe not. I see no end in sight. It gets really addicting though so I'm not complaining.
Graphic wise it could of been better, but in a way its...how should I put it...cute? Maybe not for everything, but for most it is. So I give it a 3.5/5 graphic wise.
As for sound, it really flows and stays on theme with the game. Amazingly it doesn't get annoying too quick. It's really calm and relaxing. Nothing upbeat, but nonetheless really good. A 5/5.
Gameplay its basically a point and click. There are plenty of choices to pick, some that lead to interesting events and stories. Though some end up getting you in the same place just with slightly, unimportant different text (As in like " is suitable for this") For this I give a 4.5/5.
As for the story its simply amazing and addicting....yet simple. Your this puppet master whose mother (and father?) tought you houjutsu, the art of infusing your will into objects so you can move it. Throughout her life she used her houjutsu on a puppet to entertain others a source of income. She dies and so the main character takes after his mom. Before she died he heard an interesting story of an angel residing in the sky. He gets a mystical feeling throughout his childhood and never really fully understood it and never got the chance to ask his mother as he mature. So as he takes after his mother, he also travels endlessly to find this angel until he reaches a peaceful city in the country side. He has no money what-so-ever, so he lays there on the street looking at the sky. He pretty much just blanks out while thinking about a ramen set and the angel. He finally gets up in hope of entertaining some children for some income to get food. Unluckily he finds no one willing to pay and instead gets his puppet kicked. He goes in the park in search for it and there he meets a girl named Miziu (I may have spelled it wrong). She talks of how she wishes to play stuff like tag and splash with him, but the main character coldly refuses. Ignoring (or maybe not realizing?) his coldness she helps him try to find his doll in exchange for him to play with her. (Even though he said no) She finds it, the character gets REALLY hungry, and the girl invites him to her house. And from there the character tries his best to find ways to get out of the town (Even though it is a hentai game, theres hardly any hentai) This game actually sticks too a good storyline and really holds out the hentai (In a way its like tsukihime, but without the violence) Truly heart warming at some parts and funny at others. Superb 5/5. My total score is a 4.5/5
Worth a try. Though the translation does in some parts give off unknown characters, so some parts of the story you can't make out anything.
If possible I hope this group could sometime in the future translate this game for only one girl pathway is translated and not even fully.
If you want to buy the game just go here
Once you purchase it, heres the uncompleted translation patch
The project is officially dead and thus, like I've said earlier on, only one pathway is complete and even that has some untranslated bits.
My source is from this site and from my game play.
I came here to share this game and to partially find people to translate this game as well which has led me here. I will help with whatever I can and will continue to post on these boards. Thankyou for reading my long post
