Summary: I tried the game for like 5 min, the interface is just too slow and the choices that you've make is overwhelming. I didn't know what to expect at first ,was thinking it might be a mix of rpg and simulation, but I was dead wrong, this plays more like one of those mud games which to me are extremely boring. It does feel like a game with much depth & might even be fun if I can get pass the nuissances, unfortunately, I just don't have the patience for this.
Summary: This is a beautiful game that really makes you feel like you are part of the story. It is not like a lot of other games. Here are some things that I liked about the game. This game lets you make lots of choices for which there are consequences. You are not sure what the consequences might be. The game gives you a color coded hint about how likely a specific choice is to be successful. Sometimes you learn more from failing than succeeding (like in real life).
Summary: I'm always like text-based game like this one. But this game has (for me) too much choices (and too much text to read ). I had some difficult times to decide which activity I should do first. Anyway, this game has nice music and good stories. Way to go!
Summary: Just as an intoductory addition to my voting: The five stars are related to this niche-genre. Players who like these kind of games, such as me, will have a hard time finding a similar title that is as strong and entertaining as Academagia. This is a life simulation that can be compared to Kudos, Cute Knight, or the older Princess Maker.
Summary: This is a text based game where you build your own player and determine the options and schedules for the coming day and term such as to conduct research, develop relationships, learn and practice new skills, learn new spells and abilities for the most productive results. Oh, and you go on adventures as well as explorations and you must take time to train your familiar (my current player's familiar is a lovely loyal rat named Poet).
