LITERALLY PEAK. MY BRAIN CHEMISTRY HASNT JUST BEEN CHANGED ITS BEEN REWRITTEN

I know its about a serious murder but the game does not take itself that seriously most of the time and I'm here for it. The mind synch sections are a bit nutty and are just trial and error I would recommend to look up a guide to save yourself the time.

It's one hell of a game. Great mystery that blends in comedy and drama quite seamless. Date and Aiba are a great pair together to help you find clues....and Mizuki is a great character in itself.
The gameplay is like walking point and click game, and it's done with Aiba...who is your eye, lol. She can create an area where she can see what happened in a certain area or get clues, it makes for an interesting time. AI also has a whole bunch of branching paths that give you multiple endings, and one main ending after you do everything.
The biggest compliment is the writing itself, it's so cleverly written whether it's when you find out about certain plots in the story, and the hilarity that happens with Date...he's quite the strange character who's a bit...uh...lewd, lol. He has some of the funniest scenes I've seen in a game.
I have to recommend this to everyone, its an awesome story with large replayability with the branching paths and just an overall good time!

aiba should've beat up date more

Even when I reached a conclusion, I only had so many questions before I came to the real end, it's strange, familiar, not really your typical sci-fi, even Inception won't prepare you for this. The strength of this game (which could be seen as a weakness for others) is how much it forces you to rewind time and to deduce things differently so you can access other routes. I don't have anything to tell unless you already played the game
