So I just finished eden* and thought it was a beautifully-written story. It definitely dragged on a bit too much at times, but it was able to tell its story with good pacing regardless.
In a way, this is a VN I would compare to something of a work of art, as the blending of background, foreground, music, and dialogue all help to get you into the mood of things as you read it. That much I am thankful for in this VN.
It's not perfect, as far as VNs go, but it had a great story and message to tell, and came with an environment that really helped get you into the mood for the story. Definitely something worth checking out, and definitely worth the money you pay for it.
