Summary

I’m not one for visual novels but il give anything a go. This is a story all about you wearing the many masks that a person wears in order to protect themselves, With that knowledge you interact with others who also wear masks and must try and explore the sides of everyone’s character, your meter will go up or down. By the halfway mark I completely switched off il be honest, I just put it on auto skip and pressed a few buttons, stopping every now and then for any gossip. Overall it was an alright game but is a must-buy for trophy hunters.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
