At first glance, I thought this game would be dull, boring, and something I would not be interested in. I was wrong just by playing this game once. This game is very well developed. The Blind Griffin is by far my favorite visual novel. I wanted to replay this game many times just to play all the endings because they were all different and interesting from each other. The character development was just phenomenal! I loved how diverse and distinct each character was. My favorite character has got to be the protagonist or Vivienne <3. I become attach to all the characters and getting attach to these characters did not help with my emotions at the end of the 'bad' endings. The ending 'Cycle of Revenge' was the worst and best 'bad' ending there was. I teared up by how sad it was. My favorite routes to play were Alexei or Emilio. All the 'neutral' and 'true' endings were great as well. They were very hearfelt. I felt as it I was in the game itself. The art was beautiful. I loved the CG's, sprites, and backgrounds. The writing was compelling and I wanted to read every single word.
Since the game takes place in the 1920's, I didn't really know what to expect because usually the visual novels I read take place in modern era or in a fantasy world. It was a great experience to learn what it was like during the 20's. From speakeasies to slang used during the time and to the way they dress, I kind of wish I was alive during that time.
I know a lot of time, hard work, and dedication went into this game. Hopefully a sequel or another game comes out soon! This was a great game to experience and read!
