It’s a pretty short route or arc but I loved it! The prologue - if we consider it as such - I found very compelling although it is slow with no stand out moment. That very slow build up where Kagari eventually allows Kotarou into her world peppered with the lighthearted moments where we wonder what grisly end he faces each time.
Then the mystery of Kagari’s simulations revealed not through exposition but a means that makes the player think hard about what this process is telling us. I’m not saying I do understand it but it was refreshingly different in style and context to the heroine routes - Romanticist (in the Literature sense) in philosophy almost.
The big feels moment for me came with the reformation of the Occult Club, after so long where we have seen what happens after it falls apart it’s very warming to see them all back together as a team. The Earth Simulation game is terrific and someone needs to make a real God Game like this! And Chihaya’s hilarious reaction to Sakuya HB
And the ending after the big fight which looks to be heading upbeat before ending with those strange and disturbing words. Now I look forward to the final route to see if I can make more sense of it all with hindsight…
To know that we know what we know, and to know that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge.
