Can't wait for the final version. This demo was really well written. Everything from character designs, music, story is amazing. I really do like the whole idea behind the main character and the environment around them. Music was fitting for the atmosphere and is well composed. As for my thoughts on the main characters. I like them! I do like how they are unique in their own way both visually and in their personality. The visual novel itself really makes your choices feel like they matter and I can appreciate that, it tries really hard to capture the overall feel of the theme that it's set in and it succeeds in it.
One feature I really loved was being able to take notes and see your notes about certain characters. I found it extremely helpful especially when learning about them is important.
I played the first game by Navypink and I can for sure say that this game is a huge improvement from the first game by them. Writing, artwork and elements have blown me away.
Art style fits incredibly well with the theme that this game is set in. Not to mention that the art is beautiful on its own as well. While playing it I appreciated the artwork and how well it fits and improves when paired with the music which I heard was also made by Navypink themselves.
Music was really fitting and of course beautiful. Whenever I write reviews like this I especially make sure to judge soundtracks of games since I feel like music is such an important aspect to any visual novel. That being said Absolution's music was pleasant to listen to.
The Story is something I am always looking forward to especially when it's visual novels. And it is also something that I judge harshly depending on how well it's written. How did I feel about Absolution's story? Left me curious and thrilled! I do hope that in the final game we experience more dreams and expand on the main character as well.
Characters, like I've said before, are really well designed and being around them makes you be wary of your choices and how you play each scenario out. I don't dislike any of the characters shown in the Demo.
Overall I really enjoyed Absolution and it's story,music and characters all left me very satisfied. I would recommend trying the game yourself 100%. If you're a fan of more serious themed visual novels where choices matter and where you have to think, take notes and be cautious then I would pick Absolution out if I were you. It will be worth your time and I have no regrets playing it. Really excited for what's to come.
