Wonderful mystery VN with a fantastic art style and interesting setting, Paranormasight isn't perfect or revolutionary by any means, but what it does set out to do it accomplishes with style and confidence that never wavers for its entire ~10 hour runtime.

This game clearly takes a lot of reverent inspiration from ADVs like 999, Ever17, and Chaos;Head, and it does a fantastic job weaving something fresh into the mind-bending style of achronological puzzle solving that those games revel in.

The story itself—in the fashion that games of this ilk often are—is built almost entirely of contrivances, but manages to balance that against a scenario and excellent characterization that had me hooked from the time I completed the game's prologue chapter. Also I'm just a sucker for stories that involve the occult so honestly this was just so specifically up my alley that there was no way I wasn't going to enjoy it.

In short, games really good and I think if it's even on your radar in the first place, you should absolutely give it a shot as you will almost certainly find something to enjoy in it.
