[I bought this on Steam because it was available there first. This is a copy of my review from there]
A neat WWI-flavored game that deals with a heavy topic: how people are able to live meaningful lives in a world menaced by something as meaningless as war. Of course romance is an option, but it's not the only one. There's a fair amount of humor to balance out the mood, which is nice, and the writing quality is good; I took a number of screenshots to show my friends in IRC, which is my usual yardstick for how much I enjoy a game's story. (Also, "please calm down" should be a choice in all dating sims.) Characters are complex and there's a great variety of them, so there's sure to be at least one to suit anyone's tastes. Gerhardt was my personal favorite, but a few others (like Wolf) unexpectedly grew on me. Walter's route is also a fantastic idea that took me by surprise. The Battles of Wits are enjoyable, although they're a bit on the easy side. I'm eagerly awaiting the second act.
