So let’s talk about タペストリー －you will meet yourself－ shall we?
It’s a new galge by light released on 2009/02/27
So let’s get on with the overview shall we…
Let’s start with the characters =D
First up is obviously the main character
吾妻 はじめ (Azuma Hajime)
Your Typical 鈍感/Slow on the uptake main character. The usual Kind, caring blah blah blah blah. He’s the god of sewing. No rly.
That said, he has one of the biggest problems on earth. He only has 6 months to live before he dies from some illness.
This galge revolves around him trying to hide his illness and how his friends interact with him when they know about his illness.
潮見 ひかり (Shiomi Hikari)
She is Hajime’s childhood friend (who would have guessed ._.) and goes to his house to eat breakfast every morning (and eats his breakfast for him i should say). Loves こしあん… Im not sure what this is but apparently it’s some kind of sweet that is really sweet >.>. Oh and there’s no limiter on her stomach.
羽鳥 詩 (Hatori Uta)
The quiet type girl. Biggest bewbs in the game. Extremely rich. Harbors feelings for the main character but since she knows Hikari likes Hajime, she doesn’t make her move. Though I doubt she’ll dare to make the move since she’s pretty… quiet ._.
茅野 美那 (Kayano Mina)
My favourite character in the game… The Tsundere character in the game. What’s so epic about her is that she turns yandere in the middle. I know that sounds weird but I really like her route. Technically I went for her route first =P. Her past is shrouded in darkness =D. Ok that was an exagerration. >.>
桜井 紗希 (Sakurai Saki)
The Lively girl in this story. She lives with her mother in a small flat (do they call it flats over there i have no idea). She does a lot of part time jobs to help her family. Whenever she meets Hajime, she’ll run up to him. Without stopping. You can imagine what happens >.>
真里谷 遥海 (Mariyatsu Harumi)
She’s the leader of the sewing (i think it’s more like handiwork kinda) club that all the characters above are also in. She’s pretty mysterious and doesn’t like to be bored. So she amuses herself with events with the other members. She goes overseas quite a lot so she skips a lot of class.
So there’s a brief intro of the characters… Now for the game itself.
The start screen for Tapestry (zomg wordpress makes it so small wtf).
The whole game is in 16:9 (i think or was it 16:10) btw.
Nothing secial about the starting screen itself so let’s move along
Now this is very interesting. The text used in this game is manga styled text boxes popping up. Unlike the old types where a whole chunk of text is down below, this is like the best type of text that can ever be made in a visual novel.
Right clicking also brings up a lot of options which you can play with. (i got lazy to take a pic)
Nothing revolutionary here… Typical choice patterns… This game is pretty straightforward so you won’t die from trying to guess which choice leads to whose route.
Oh and I forgot to mention… Hajime is voiced in some parts of the story where the viewpoint changes to each of the girls. Very nice addition.
So that concludes the short overview. I haven’t finished it yet so. Let’s just wait till i finish it so i can give a good review.
