    Yeah it appears to be a dual release but they’re kinda glossing over that fact, and that one of them was already released separately.

    I knew it was going to be nisa just before clicking the article. nisa’s games have the same specific artstyle to them. well that’s okay, another way to spot nisa games so I can stay the fuck away from them.

    It comes with htol#NiQ, which is by the same developers.

    Awesome news! Now Bamco AND NISA are starting to announce their PC releases alongside the handheld/console releases. I hope this trend starts to pick up with other companies too! I’d love to see this keep happening.

    As for the game, I don’t know what to expect. The Firefly Diary was really slow, and while interesting, knowing its by the same team doesn’t exactly get me hyped. The game is pretty at least. I like that.

    That trailer should have the pokemon epilepsy warning at the beginning.

    Looks interesting, kinda reminds me of another game I’ve seen before about a boy wondering around a dark place full of monsters. Cannot remember the title of that one though.

    Looks like they just want to dispose their remaining Hotaru no nokki stuff

    That’s a really cool double release, but given how frustratingly bad the gameplay in htol#NiQ was I doubt I’ll go for it.

    Its nothing like htol#NiQ.

    The game takes place in a town you can roam around in freely and is devided by chapters with each chapter having a differant objective and opening up a new part of town.
    Of course there are plenty of monters that can and will kill you but they all have their own behaviour and you can somewhat defend yourself against some of them by distracting them by throwing rocks and making a run for it. So not its not as punishingly difficult as htol#NiQ.
    There are some parts that may appear impossible at first but those are more like puzzles. For example a certain monster kept killing me over and over but it turned out it will only attack you if your shine your flashlight at it.

    Where the game really shines is its athosphere and sounddesign. I even got a couple jumps out of because a monster blindsided me and was really immersed in the game.

    Both games on 1 cartridge? Or is htol#NiQ just a download voucher?

    See my reply to Tristan below. Its nothing like htol#NiQ.
    Their not the same type of game and Yomawari is miles better with when it comes to gameplay regardless.

    I’m starting to wonder if it was such a good idea to bundle this game with htol#NiQ. Never knew people hated it this much.

    Yeah, I know that it is quite different, but after the horrible design decisions in htol#NiQ, I do question how good any game from them really is.

    It is a really weird decision for sure. It seems to be equating the two games. htol#NiQ had a plethora of problems, from the slow moving character, to the reaction puzzles, to the random deaths and those evil firefly sections, so it is understandable that some people, myself included, really disliked the game.

    Is htol#NiQ bad? I was interested in playing this game since I saw it on Steam

  19. Mr0303
    May 26, 2016 at 8:15 pm

    When I first saw it I really liked the artstyle and the music, but the gameplay and level design have some serious issues in my opinion.

    Your character is the slowest thing in gaming, but you have to do reaction puzzles. There are a lot of random deaths and a couple of very frustrating sections. I really disliked the game when I played it on the Vita. Perhaps they fixed some of those issues in the PC version, but I really doubt it.

    Maybe I should wait for a good offer on the PS Store or Steam before buying this game

    My advice is to watch some gameplay videos and see if it is something you can tolerate.

    Preordered it. Really good price with Amazon Prime, and you get an extra game to boot! I wasn’t willing to buy the Firefly Diary game on its own, but I wouldn’t mind trying it out as a bonus.

    May 26, 2016 at 9:28 pm

    I’ve seen the gameplay videos and the game seems good, but the main reason about why I haven’t played this is for the touch controls that I really hate

  24. Mr0303
    May 26, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    You can actually turn them off and control the firefly with the analogue sticks. It somewhat improves the experience. I’d imagine that some sections would be even more frustrating with touch.

    Pretty good game in my opinión. It’s a little bit better with mouse, but it’s not bad on Vita

    I get a very Rain feel from this game.

    That trailer gave me the shivers. I don’t own yet htol#NiQ, so that’s a plus.

    the artstyle is top notch, I will keep my eyes on this one

    I fucking love horror so i’m tempted to try it even if i dislike NISA.

    I hear reindeer/suika’s game kinda sucked but this one looks better in practice.

    Gonna keep my eye on it for sure, i love me some spooky.

    I don’t support censorship, which nisa does alot.

  33. Martin

    Other than Criminal Girls, did they censor anything else? I’m quite well aware of some of the stuff NISA has done, like the bugs in the witch and hundred knight, but they’ve also localized us quite a good amount of games, like Guided Fate, Disgaea, DanganRonpa, and published games in Europe as well. With NISA, you’re almost always guaranteed to have dual audio, which is a plus in my books and I do hope that Bamco and Atlus do the same. They do have their problems and issues, but in the end, I’m satisfied with their products.
