A lot of content and replay-ability for the price.

Review from Steam

Its not a bad game, and for that I give it the thumbs up. Though really my response is more like "Its ok I guess." I finished one of the endings, there are several, over a couple of different routes. I enjoyed it well enough. If I really didn't like the game I wouldn't have played through to the end. The problem is though that after finishing that ending I had basically zero desire to see the other endings. And that means that I didn't like it nearly enough for multiple playthroughs, even going down different paths.
I usually write super long reviews if i really hate or really love a game. But I have so little I really want to say about this one. Its cheap, only ten dollars and I think its worth that price. Wouldn't pay much more for it. Whether you are more interested in the h-scenes or in the story/gameplay I would say either way you get your money's worth, no more no less.
