It looks really interesting and the music, of what I've heard, is fantastic. Can anyone recommend it?

Looks like a Visual Novel I played a few of these kinds of games there alright. This one with its reviews looks like a must.

Try it out you can always get a refund.

I've played the game a bit - long enough to finish the first night/tutorial.

It's mostly character interactions between Jill, the MC, and her current customer. At certain points they'll ask for a drink and you have to mix it from a selection of ingredients. This isn't timed and you can screw up as many times as you want as long as you don't click "SERVE". Sometimes they'll ask for specific drinks, other times they ask for a surprise, and other times they ask for a drink in a roundabout way and you have to figure out what they want.

The story apparently starts to change later on depending on what drinks you serve at certain times, but given how early in the game I am I'm not sure how much it'll actually change.

There's also a minor mechanic where you have to save up X number of dollars for the end of the month. It may sound easy but sometimes Jill needs to buy something to keep on task for the next night, like a holographic plant.


If you're into quasi-VNs or any narrative-heavy game, I'd say go for it. I mean even if you don't like it you can get that refund.



EDIT: it has a loli android call girl 10/10

I love this game- interesting characters, lot's of charm surprisingly heart-wrenching at points and generally just entertaining.
And yes, it has a loli android prostitute who is freaking adorable. 10/10 GOTY

This one has been recommended to me by several friends. Unfortunately, it never seems to go on sale, but I am watching, and it will find its way home sooner or later.

I got around to playing it. It's really fantastic! I've never enjoyed this genre, but something compelled to try this one. Well, some games defy and transcend genre-types and this is one of those games.

The game itself it really enjoyable, and has a fair amount of replay value (I have started my second play-through), but the soundtrack is my favourite part. I find myself leaving the game running while I do other things just so I can enjoy the game music in the background.

I recommend it, for what it's worth.
