Update #5

I thought I was finished with buying games until the next big sale… and then some very nice coupons suddenly started circulating. On the plus side, I’ve started working through my ABC plan again.

Rip another point on why i need to read fata


Ohhhhh yesssssss!!!!!!!! I got the biggest smile on my face. I’m so thrilled you enjoyed the House in Fata Morgana. Who ended up being your favorite character and why? What twist did you really not see coming? Did the ending take your heart and dunk it through a golden basketball hoop while you tried not to cry but cried a lot?

All of your reviews are concise and illuminating, and I very much enjoyed reading them.

Would it be all right with you if I linked this post to the House in Fata Morgana and Forget Me Not entries in my visual novel masterpost?


Sure, feel free to link it.

Michel ended up being my favourite. He’s an easy character to root for, but I like that the writers didn’t shy away from giving him some significant personality flaws. His development was nothing sort of inspirational. Plus, I found his interactions with the others quite entertaining.

I noticed the evidence hinting at Michel’s secret, but came to the wrong conclusion. The reveal actually surprised me a fair bit. I didn’t anticipate the writers being bold enough to go there.

Yep, that ending made me pretty emotional. Thankfully it wasn’t as sad as I feared. Those final minutes were seriously starting to make me nervous.


I agree so much! I relate a lot to Michel’s personality. I appreciated so much how the game handled the fourth chapter/the ‘fairytale story’ Giselle told herself, with a fairytale ending that was just utterly… not real, and then how much more flawed the two of them really are, but how their story ends up so much better for it, so much more meaningful for their flaws.

Yeah!! I was also was really surprised and happy with how it turned out, and I like that the writers confirmed that Michel is indeed intersex. This game is so well done from the initial writing to the masterful translation.

Ohhh maaaan, me too! I had braced myself for a bad ending but my heart yearned for a good one - and there it was!!! It never felt better, or more earned, or more worthwhile.


MWAHAHAH I am glad my giveaway brought someone else into the fata morgana world

spoilers actually, in the 2nd playthrough they change some bits of text, for example “You” becomes something else since you already know the story


That’s pretty neat.

Now I’m just eagerly awaiting the release of A Requiem for Innocence. That should be a good time for a replay :)
