Gonna be real, played this on stream, and it needed far more warnings than it presently has. TW: body horror, medical experimentation, McCarthyism, hints of psychological torture, harm to animals. I could guess at the first two, but the rest we didn't know until well into the story. Chat and I almost just quit reading.
Positive points: character animations in a VN feel rare, so that was nice to see. The soundtrack (though repetitive after the first 10 times) is good and does set the mood. The artwork is also both beautiful and terrible; there were definitely some "plants" I wanted to spend more time up-close on to take in their terrifying beauty.
Negative points: Lacking any real gameplay; at the outset the story seemed to imply we'd get to make at least one choice but the ending completely rips that away from the player. Call me a sensitive snowflake, but the story was pretty much a miss for me. I didn't really see the point in including gay characters in the story; didn't get the sense that they actually had much of a romance going on and largely felt the story would've been exactly the same with that aspect removed. The warden, I guess, was designed to be as offensive as possible -- perfectly fine -- but there was absolutely no one we felt sympathy towards. Other than maybe all the plants and animals they experimented on. Also, as a reader rather than a player, there was a lot more telling than showing. I felt hit over the head by exposition, rather than feeling like there was something to discover.
All that said, it wasn't terrible. The story could use some refinement, since it's basically all there is to the game. Otherwise, visually, this really showcased the artists work well and I'm curious to see what other artwork of theirs is out there.
