Have you ever thought of playing a Visual Novel, but didn’t know what’s best to start with? Or didn’t want to spend a lot to find out? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel to Japan? To spend a week there with two beautiful girls? Then Go Go Nippon is the perfect game for you!Developed by OVERDRIVE, makers of Kira Kira, Edelweiss, Deardrops, and more, Go Go Nippon marks the very first visual novel created by a Japanese studio specifically for the western audience!
Speaking from a staff side though, this game was a lot of fun to work on. This was the first game where me, and several of our other English speaking staff were able to review the scripts, and give actual input on the game before it went off to development. Were there times I face-palmed at things that happened in this tale? Oh, yes, yes there were. But only because those were things I had actually done myself during my year abroad in Japan.
This is definitely a great piece for anyone who would like to go to Japan, anyone preparing to go to Japan, anyone who wants to learn a little more about it, or anyone who just wants to find out what a Visual Novel is like. If you know anyone who likes anime or manga, this is the game to show them.
And what would a VN be without at least a little service? =D
