I played this game a few years ago and I still remember it as one of the best vns I've played. I loved all the romance routes. Bad ends devastating though. 10/10

I'm five years late, but I loved this game! I adore it when games take place during the Prohibition, because it showcases a different style of life and all sorts of cool slang. Getting all the endings took a little while, but it was so worth it. Some endings almost had me crying - of either joy or sadness, I should add. The personality dynamics between the characters were so well written, and I swear I'm in love with Viv haha! Incredible game :D
I loved this and OH MY GOSH the glossary, it helped me learn other slangs. Plus I love the art style and the choice of color of this game. Though with the menu screen, it's quite difficult or too dark to see the options such extras or save/load since it is in black color font. Maybe if the color font is white, then we can see it more. Though it's only an opinion so you don't have to change it. Overall I liked the game, looking forward for your other projects.
This is honestly a great visual novel to play in one sitting! Although this was released a while back, I did write a review on here if you wanted my full thoughts - https://myonettesilver.wixsite.com/geekishblog/post/random-reviews-the-blind-gri...
TLDR though - I enjoyed it and it was very memorable.
Ive enjoyed so much this story, and i got the happy ending with Alexei at first, and omg hes russian and hardworking ahhhhhh i loved this so much thank you guys who created it ahaha i hope to see more from you in the near future, i enjoyed the characters section in setting so much, there were even the two grannies ahahah
TLDR : The stories are excellent, the glossary is marvelous and you really should try it out.
- The GLOSSARY DUDE!! I learned so many slang from the roaring years and it's written in a quirky and funny way.
- Good music
- Great arts (the backgrounds and occasional animations are so nice)
- All the good endings are nice and fluffy
- The bad endings are heart wrenching (seriously!)
- On your second playthrough, you get to have extra inner dialogs from the love interest
- It's easy (you won't need a guide to get every extra pictures)
- The characters are really well fleshed out for such a short game
- it's free
- It's really short (2-3 hours top top)
- You only have a couple of choices
- The good ends scenes are a bit fast pace (but still really good)
- Would have loved to have a bit more flirting scenes
- Would have been nice to be able to hear vivi's singing (but I understand that would need songs with rights and stuff)
- Whish there were a bit more Mary in there somewhere
All in all, I strongly recommand it!
I thought the inclusion of a trans woman was pretty bad, but then again, I don't think I've seen a single cis person right trans people in a way I haven't hated.
Just wondering, what made you hate the way the character was written? Ive only played one ending so far (LÁrmour or something?), so i dont know if im missing some lines or something, but besides being mentioned once that the character was a trans woman it never came up, did it? Isnt that fine? It was just a character like everyother character?
A short but good game worthy of play. I usually prefer visual novels with a fantasy genre, but this was a good change of pace. Good to pass the time!
Came here years later to tell people who still hasn't played this game yet to give it a try. The characters has hidden depths and backstories that can be revealed in each LI's route. I loved exploring all of them and despite the lack of CGs, they are just beautiful (Of course, I'm talking about the happy ending CGs). And man, this game just makes you want to bring back 1920s slangs XD. So if you haven't tried this game out, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???
man, i was only able to make a comment and rate it now!!! when i first played this, i fell in love immediately. the characters, the story, the music--- they're all super awesome!! i love it a lot!! i hope this gets more love and appreciation that it definitely deserves!!!!
Came back 4 years later to make an account and properly pay for/appreciate this game. Still the best novel-style game I have ever played, to this day, and something I cherish. Thank you.
I loved this game so much it was so much fun to play but I keep getting hung up on emi's routes I keep getting " rivals " any tips??
Really loved this game! Did all the routes + all the endings on my plane flight. I was really sad when I saw there wasn't much fanart for the game so I started drawing some myself-
Thank you for making this wonderful game!
An absolutely great game! Very charming setting, and every character was so lovable, including the protagonist. I absolutely fell in love with it, which is surprising considering it's so short, I didn't think I'd have the opportunity to be charmed the way I have been.
The art is full of soft lines and warm colors (which I love), the music is enchanting, and the storyline is so simple yet engaging. Definitely a game I'll be coming back to when I want something short, sweet, and familiar ♥
Aahh I am so in love with this game! Love the storyline and the art!
this is great!! i've completed all of emilio and alexei's routes so far and i'm playing gio right now. i love the graphics and the unique storyline! i was hooked from the very start.
I played all the endings and I have to say that this is such an amazing game! It is definitely one of the best visual novels I've tried. Favorite route is Alexei, but I think Gio's bad route was the saddest. Great game, keep it up!
jeez I'm sorry for noticing weird things but at the start of the game where shes wearing that cap um why doesn't she have eyebrows? once again this doesn't help anyone but I just find it so funny plus the game seems good so far haha
Really fun game!
AHHHH i love this game sososo much! i've played through all the routes and gotten all the cgs, and i can say without a doubt that this is one of my favorite visual novels. everything from the music to the characters to the writing makes it a perfect 10/10 for me. alexei is honestly my dream guy and his was definitely my favorite route (though giovanni's was a close second)! all of the characters have complex issues they deal with, such as emilio's history of racial prejudice and alexei feeling like he'll never live up to his family's standards. i felt such a strong bond with all the characters and i hope their stories will continue sometime in the future. i would love to get to know more about vivi and marie!
thanks asphodel quartet for making such a masterpiece <3 *chef's kiss*
this was such an adorable game! i grinned almost the whole time. emilio is such a cutie!!
hehehehe hey lois look im blind
but seriously, great game!
Id love to see a LGBT version of this the female characters are just as charming as the male!
I would like to one day see a sequel to this game, but on behalf of other(new) characters.
So I finally downloaded this game and I had just started playing but for some reason the game hangs or something, everytime Alexei and Giovanni walk in. I restarted the game and the same thing still happens. Does anybody know how to fix this?
I just finished the game with the "rings of promise" ending in Emilio's route and omg, I love this game so much! The art is just beautiful, the story is really sweet and interesting and the setting is super cool. The characters are amazing as well (and of course, how can I forget my boy Emilio, did I mention that I love that cutie?). Overall the game is very polished, a bit short but that's part of the charm! Love it, 5/5~
I'm now trying to play in Alexei's route, let's see how it goes
I tried Emilio and he got revenge cycle. He gets executed :'(
oh god nooo
How did you get " rings of promise " ending no matter what I do I keep getting the " rivals " or his bad route any tips
I'm sorry I don't remember, I played this about a year ago... If I happen to remember anything, I'll tell you (maybe I'll give this game a quick re-play)
oh hi again, I found a walkthrough for you!!
I literally played all endings in one day and I loved it!!!
My fave guy is def Emilio tho, lmao <3
It was awesome, I am a really really big fan of the artstyle and the setting, great game!
I like it so much <3 ...and! I was able to use my Russian reading skills O:) XD
Such a beautiful, delightful game! I've played through five endings so far, and I absolutely adore the characters, story, and overall aesthetic~
Holy heckng heck I LOVE IT!!! The soundtrack, art, time period, dialogue, vocabulary, characters, inclusion -- it's so perfect I can't believe it even exists! *cries into hard liquor*
I think I just spent the last 20 minutes listening to Gio play. So good and relaxing. :)
I actually let him play for a long time in case there was some kinda hidden extra endings for that hahaha
I finally finished Gio's route and it was such a great ending! I loved everything about this game from the plot to the characters! I believe that you have made a truly amazing game and I am glad that I got to play it! Amazing job!
I love this game so much!! Favorite character is Emilio. I also got all the endings and CGs! I am super in love with the art, soundtrack and storyline.
This game is getting intense! We've started to delve into more serious matters but the fact that you can still make this game so funny and amazing speaks measures about how much time and love you put into the game! Great job!
Can I find the walkthrough for this?
I'm loving this game so much!
Another episode in, another part done! I'm liking this game more and more and I have so much fun doing all the voices!
This game is so good so far! I love the characters and how well-written they are! I can't wait to play more! Good job!
