This review is based on author's perspective and actual experience may differ on individual's own preferences.
I tried…really did, but just cant get into the story.
So much focus on picturing how tedious a lawyer job is (focus on news tv, radio and web), stalking social medias…most of the time is passed reading stuff you don’t car about. and from time to time, a little show off on how complex some laws are making you answer legal questions that nobody cares about.
At least the author did a good job on that…yes being a lawyer is tedious and boring…and so is a game that focuses that much on those 2 aspects.
Regarding the adult content….it’s a pain, went up to the point where you choose a team and 2 (little, very little) animations. Choose your path, extreme vanilla or absolutely depraved. No middle way. Some BJ, HJ or you ho full slutty Anal/ dirty ATM/ Watersport…again with no animation, just a few renders.
Very hard to keep following the story as you wast most of your time reading fake news about elections, sports, police investigations…
The Adult part of this ADULT visual novel is some renders with boobs and dirty talk from time to time….the rest is just a show off of supposed lawyer knowledge.
BTW, only a few lawyers are involved is some international conspiracy including the government. Most deal with divorce, business contracts….nothing requiring you to read every news published!
2/10 for the adult content
9/10 to the wasted time downloading and reading all this.
Right, what a Shit!
Just can’t find anything to save this!
No anim (almost none and the few included are like 5 seconds loops). Story is so lost into technical details that it make it impossible to enjoy it. MC is investing like 70% of the time reading and listening to news, the remaining 30% is shared between dream/monologues/him thinking and …oh surprise! interacting with other girls (and boys)!
God it’s supposed to be an AVN…get your shit together…..in AVN you have the “A” to care about!
Write a simple novel or “my bad legal experience” biography.
Even the supposed sexy renders are a fail! Girls are absolute sluts, MC an degenerate or you have no adult content at all.
Stuck at the very beginning computer work task – both casefiles say they are already completed but the game refuses to let me pass through. Assume its the mod, but has anyone figured out a way through without scrapping the mod??
Please update to 0.15
Messi lose on sunday
This AVN used to work fine but this update (v0.14) now crashes when you try to access the menu to save or load. (Could be the cheat mod) so its kind of like IRONMAN mode where you play through from scratch with no saves, but since I’ve already done that many times, not really wanting to go through all that again.
Developer needs to go back into his scripting and change the main color of this text from black to some other bright text, perhaps white…this way people can turn off the text box, by actually using the transparency slider, right now that thing is worthless…partly because it doesn’t really work, and secondly because seriously…..black text without any light text box makes the text pretty much unreadable, especially for those of us using things like laser tv’s, OLED Monitors / OLED TV’s and QLED monitors and tv’s will struggle massively with this game.
It’s a simple fix for someone who knows what they are doing…and I am seriously surprised the mod creator didn’t fix this issue. I know other mod creators have fixed other games that have black text.
This is a wonderful game, it really is. It’s very well written, meaningful choices…pity the dev didn’t make a meaningful decision regarding his choice of text color hahaha sorry.
this is labeled as 0.13.7 update, but its actually 0.13.6??
Loving this game so far. I’ve done both the Ellie and Vanessa routes.
weird that this says its 0.13.5 version of the game, but when starting the game its says that this version is 0.12.1 of the game.
I stopped playing this one when i got to the scene where you need to be an actual lawyer specialized in international business laws to answer the questions correctly, that got boring so fast
