If the first 15 minutes of this game tells you anything about it, it’s that the characters in the game aren’t believable enough to have enough stickiness to want to understand their story.
Their lack of self-awareness and rational thinking lacks the emotional empathy to want to help them out.
See the first 15 minutes of game play and review of Airis here:
AIRIS is an otome game where science fiction meets fantasy, combined with elements of mystery and comedy. Play as Aliya, a warrior devoted to protecting the country of Airis, and help her discover the truth about her friends and her beloved country while romancing one of the three people who have grown to be important in her life!
This visual novel was done in the span of one month for NaNoRenO game jam.
Ever since Aliya joined Airis’ Vassals as a warrior, she has been devoted to her cause of protecting her country from the creatures that, having lost their senses due to a strange plague, started attacking the cities years ago. Constantly training in dungeons and working to improve herself, she believes she can become one of the best warriors in the kingdom. Unfortunately, there is just one little problem — lately, Aliya has been suffering from blackouts, waking up in different locations with no memory of what happened. Fearful of what this means and what may be happening to her, Aliya is determined to get to the bottom of her strange condition. During her search for a cure for her affliction, she might just discover more than she expected — about her friends, her beloved country and the plague that threw the country into chaos in the first place.
