honestly only have three complaints really, and they aren't enough to not recommend this game to people.
first off, the pc controls, as playing with mouse and keyboard, while not excrutiating, would often see my mouse jumping to the next confirmation button during certain screens, which was jarring. i feel a little more fine tuning with regards to the pc controls would be for the best.
next, you get to choose from one of three different "moods" for grace, both as her character and in songs. while i predominantly chose red or green, the blue options often felt the least fleshed out, or at least like there wasn't as much agency in there. it feels like blue was added to create less of a this or that type game, and while i'd rather its inclusion than cutting it , i feel a little more fine tuning could make the blue options really stand out.
my final complaint, honestly, would be with how little of the world we get to see. i think the story behind the story and the worldbuilding are just as interesting as the story we got, and while it's understandable that there wouldn't be as many idols as there once was, i wish we'd gotten to see a lot more greek gods and legends personified in this interesting world than we already did.
i recommend at least one playthrough, and don't be scared to redo a song if you don't like the outcome.
also, if you get to aphrodite's party, go red. even if you don't make that your canon choice, at least listen to the red song.
Sí es cierto que quizá esperaba un poco más de las canciones en sí. Quitando algunas excepciones, las que he escuchado yo (sé que cambian según las decisiones y la personalidad de Grace) eran todas bastante similares en cuanto a tono, melodías y demás. Aún así, respeto mucho lo bien cuidadas que están.
Por lo demás, no hay mucho más que comentar. Es una visual novel sencilla basada 100% en diálogos. Los personajes son muy buenos (¡y las actuaciones también!) y la trama es interesante, aunque quizá algo predecible a ratos. En cualquier caso, merece mucho la pena probarlo.
I've really enjoyed the setting, characters and presentation of Stray Gods. It's ambitious to try to make a musical with a choice system. The amount of work involved not just in making songs that work by changing on the fly, but weaving them with your previous choices in an organic and natural way, it's nothing to scoff at.
It is true that perhaps I expected a bit more from the songs themselves. Aside from a few exceptions, most of the ones I've heard (I know they change depending on your choices and Grace's personality) were all pretty similar in terms of tone, melody and such. Still, I really appreciate how well done they are.
Beyond that, not much else to talk about. It's a simple visual novel that's 100% dialogue-based. The characters are very good (and so are the performances!) and the plot is interesting, although perhaps a bit predictable at times. In any case, it's definitely worth a try.
