It’s a story that stays with you.

The night I finished this game I literally only slept for 3 hours thinking about how good the story is. The mechanics and the translated texts are a little clunky but the visuals and the plot more than make up for it. As a Taiwanese American it also got me to reflect a lot about Taiwanese history and culture. I really can’t wait to watch the movie.

Amazing story

Wasn’t the best “game” if you are looking for exciting fighting arena or puzzle solving. But the story was amazing. You go through a life of a teenage girl and her decision making process. The producer of the game also incorporate vast amount of Taiwanese folklore and local cultural, that makes the story very interesting.

A very good game!

For those who never suffer from the terrify old days, it’s a good game to know part of Taiwan’s history; for those who survives, it’s a sad game to memorize.....
