  1. I am not into asian characters’ style and I have not appreciated graphics very much however they are still enjoyable. Choices and paths are very limited, you can’r really influence the story. Narration is too long, too much to read and most of the time flashbacks are useless. My evaluation of Now&Then as a game is barely sufficient. On the other side it has one of the best narration in the entire VN world, it seems to read a romantic adventure, very well written. Probably with a shorter story, better graphics and more paths to follow, this would be a masterpiece. If you like rich stories and you have time to read a lot, this game is for you. My evaluation is 4,5 on 5.

  2. Well, the game story is pretty good, especially like in this adult contents category. 8/10
    It will be better if the main character looks like Gigachad :3 But now this brat looks like Soy boy, looks like a woman’s body in some scenes, weird hairstyle(especially hair color, and looks like a weirdo :)).
    Well this game dev deserves the supporting.(I just saying this because I always play the pirate first and then I just go subscribe if I like)

  3. Very good game with good animations. The only negative is that sometimes has long unnecessary dialogs without meaning and can be very tiring to read them.

  4. Very good game so far. I’m at chapter 8. Nice written. The images in the dark during sex scenes need to be clearer and the body fluids not to be dark like ink or dirty. Very good animations.

  5. Very pleasantly surprised by this VN,
    Certainly among the best, because we have a complete story with several possible endings.
    Everything seem coherent, if reading is not a problem for you you will appreciate a good characters development and their feelings,written In a mature and interesting way until the end, small twists and turns that keep the desire to continue, a few notes of humor and well placed pop culture ref make everything interesting.

    Everything is not perfect unfortunately, nothing annoying just a few little concerns, maybe the translation (English not being my mother tongue I am poorly placed to judge)

    But some sentence here and there which sometimes requires concentrating to grasp the full meaning.

    The most disturbing for me being in Lewd scenes where the level of writing is much lower than the rest of the story,
    An approach with more eroticism and feelings of the characters would have been welcome, instead we have the same approach as in a large number of VNs where the characters comment on their actions some dialogues lack a more mature approach , the level of maturity of the rest of the story would have deserved the same approach on these scenes, as if another person had written these parts, don’t worry it remains passable overall.

    The visuals are more than correct and the models (Honey Select) are ok+ and unique with nice body proportions
    The animations are generally rather or even very good overall.

    1. I very much agree, this novel is a nice read. I wasn’t surprised because I’ve read the review above before playing, still glad that I’ve tried it anyway.

      I have not much to add to the above review but a simple affirmation of the things mentioned above. Though I had not the same probs with language as the reviewer. English is also not my first language but I had no hic-ups while reading. Or at least I’ve read worse, try machine translations (MTL) of chinese novels for example LMAO

      The theme of this story is not something I’m a big fan of, no its more like I’m very picky when it comes to distopian (post) apocalypse stories. I think that instead of using zombies, the infected are a more realistic view of the zombie apocalypse and it reminded me of something in the game Plague Inc. In that game you had a virus you could develop that played with the serotonin in the brain of the host to make the host more volatile or lustful, for extra transmission/casualties.

      Coming back to the review;
      Indeed the lewd scenes are of lower quality than the rest of the story, its good the first couple scenes but after a while they become repetitive and most of the time they say the same stuff and the oohs and aahs.

      reacting to @Destiny: “This game reminds me of another called Leap of Faith which is equally as relatable and I´d say many have and would enjoy.”

      Yeah I’ve played Leap of Faith too, and I must say that’s also a very good read. Though I must say that Leap of Faith is a more heavy, sad and bittersweet story. This story has also some dark themes like mentions of rape, canibalism etc. but the writing was not too graphic about it so the shock level was kept at a minimum. Leap of Faith however, deals with a subject that I’ve lived through, multiple times, so that story hit more close at home than this story will. And the deaths in zombie stories are such common place that I’ve become desensitized to it, somewhat expecting it.

  6. The strange Guy sorry dumbass but you can’t make a stupid comment like that basically call everyone who likes or downloads this a horny bitch and say no offence i could also call u a dumb cunt brain dead Foreigner and also say no offence so putting no offence in front of it means fuck all moron

  7. It’s been a while, but I finally finished the game, I enjoyed it, there´s a rich story in my opinion and the characters are sweet, while maintaining a thriller if I right, I mean that the atmosphere of the game isn´t just fucking but surviving and trying to live as best as possible. It took me a while to finish the game, but I recommend it to anyone looking for a good surviving apocalyptic survival story.

    This game reminds me of another called Leap of Faith which is equally as relatable and I´d say many have and would enjoy.

  8. This Visual novel simple and a lot more understandable… With a good story … But story used while sex scenes are worst … It’s sometimes tries to overshadowed main story line of the game … This game quite enjoyable… It’s in own way … A lot more logical , more detailed…. * There is no such overpowered MC and that type of crap * Similar but totally different…. In opinion… You are person who like to read … * Instead of skipping or watching sex scenes ( in short u are lot a horny bitch[ no offence ] ) * ….. Then recommendation is to try this game out

  9. You want to keep nerve as low as possible. The lower the nerve value is, the less nervous the characters are. In certain scenes the girls need to cope with enemies, if their nerve score is too high they will fail (because they are too jittery) and miss a shot, for example – but this is merely cosmetic, nothing bad will ever happen to any of the main characters.
    A low nerve value means the girls are competent and don’t crack under stress, a high nerve value means certain situations get resolved in a different way because the girl/girls are too jittery.

    The nerve value does very little for the dialogue or story really though, other than for Alice late in the game, but it’s really easy to keep everyone’s nerves low enough. So nerve is mostly cosmetic and adds some flavor here and there.

  10. In my opinion the 76% score is MUCH too low, this game deserves a 95+% score, this is a top tier VN and simply one of the best VNs out there.
    Yes, it’s Honey Select and that means the visuals are what they are, but the visuals are still really good and the women are all unique and have realistic proportions. The story is captivating and as a bonus you can get a wholesome and happy ending that is not rushed, in fact, the ending is an entire chapter with lots of content that resolves everything in a very satisfying manner.
    The game may not be your cup of tea if the (mostly) vanilla flavor does nothing for you and you expect lots of kinky stuff. There is a lot of sex in this game, but it’s 99% vanilla/wholesome 1 on 1 action, despite the harem you can build. This is a game that at least tries to portray actual human beings and does not have an over the top dial it all the way to 11 setting where the ladies drop everything at the sheer sight of you after 5 minutes and everyone is bisexual and open to everything. Of course once you have won someone over there will be lots of intimate moments,, each scene is quite long and fully animated., and because of the build up it feels deserved and thus more rewarding.

    So don’t let the 76% rating deter you, especially the low score for the story is – in my opinion – plain wrong. This VN is one of the very best. IF you are ok with vanilla and wholesome almost all the way through (the story can get dark at times, but the overall tone and the various relationships are wholesome).
