This review was written about an earlier version of this game; newer features have since been added and are not mentioned in this review. This review has been edited from its original posting. I'm not ordinarily much of a WASD game player, nor a survival horror player.

For people searching for new visual novels, I like to recommend browsing the Lemmasoft forums. It's where I've found some nice games, including some I've reviewed, such as Those Without Names and Fairly Dangerous.
