The Three Ages of Visual Novels - With this month’s Cover Game being one of the most influential, well-regarded visual novels of all time, it seems only right and proper to take a look at the history of the medium as a whole. To date, there have been three main “eras” of visual novels that can be clearly distinguished through a combination … Continue reading The Three Ages of Visual Novels
From the Archives: Culture Shock - One of the things video games are particularly good at as an entire medium is allowing you to immerse yourself in… things.

Tips and Tricks

Here’s how to get all the endings — which one you get is based on your “P.S.” replies to the letters in each chapter. Note that not all endings are available on your first playthrough — additional ones will unlock once you clear the game once.

There are a few combinations that lead to each ending, but these ones work. Note that you’ll have to play Chapter 8 in its entirety on each playthrough, but in all other cases after your initial run you can use the “Skip” function on your smartphone to skip the chapter after you’ve sent the letter. Chapter 9 and 10 will be different for each route.

Cursed Letter, Princess of Himegamori Forest and A Government Plot are regarded as “bad” endings. Crossing Paths is the “normal” ending. Bonds of Marriage is the “true” ending so you might want to save that one for last.
