A kidnapping on the streets of Shibuya brings together a hot-blooded detective, hard-hitting journalist, former gang leader, the head researcher of a big pharma manufacturer and a part-timer stuck in cat costume for a series of events each more unexpected and outrageous than the last. Can they—or the city itself—make it through the day?

428: Shibuya Scramble reviews and comments

Translated by

428: Shibuya Scramble-A visual novel with live actors, made in the form of a series of photos, a story that develops depending on your choices. The plot Itself is that in the city of Shibuya began kidnapping. To The investigation of this strange case joined not less strange characters-a principled journalist, an ambitious detective, a former leader of the gang, the chief researcher of a major pharmaceutical manufacturer and, perhaps, the most intriguing person- A character in a cat costume (only the Japanese could come up with this). They have to plunge into a bright series of unexpected events, each of which is even more unexpected and egregious than the previous one. The Decision of each of the characters can greatly affect the fate of other characters, the game counts a huge number of endings (about 50). The Visual component seems a bit drab, but let's not forget that this is all-not anime, and detective, and yet there is enough space and humor. Actors are well matched and qualitatively play their roles. Also quite successfully fits the background music, unfortunately the dialogues are not voiced. In fact, the game is very amateur, not everyone will like this feed, many want to see from the visual novels of a fairy tale, beautiful graphics, Mount Tynochek and more bright and juicy colors. Here We offer interactive cinema in gray tones, but it is again-a matter of taste, made the game qualitatively, at least, the plot drags.

I am ready to order a T-shirt "play in 428" and walk in it for the rest of my life, because it is the best vn, you can't change my mind. First encountered it still on the cap, but banal ignorance of the Japanese did not help to move much further, so I waited impatiently for localization, thanks again. The Plot is very cool twisted, I take off my hat and put a million classes of writers. The Characters are all interesting and as they progress develop, unfold, what you observe with the sinking of the heart. Separately I want to note, how beautifully finished branches of protagonists, just ready to cry... Notes on Secondary Heroes-another plus in the piggy bank!! Of Course, many of the Vnok are waiting for beautiful anime pictures they will, so the 3d people do not taste, but, gosh, how WONDERFULLY played actors!! On The Yutuba there is a short video about how 428 filmed, all advise to look. 87 Endings!!! In this game!!! Just do not get to play and do not get to the bad Endy, unless you look at the guide constantly. But It's fun, besides, to open some things in the game will have to fill a certain amount of bad leads. Some of the endings are impossible absurd, the Japanese game is all the matter, no longer ask questions. You take some not particularly important decision on the branch of one protagonist, and then it turns the bad end on the branch of another protagonist or vice versa the decision of another protagonist rescues from the end of the third, and somehow so in a circle. The Last time block is a separate adventure, where I personally stuck, even looking at the Hyde. By the Way, after the main story of the game does not end, there open other buns. Constant Pereskoki, the absence of a normal skip button (you can immediately jump to the election and use the backdoor in principle, but the latter gives a jump to certain levels, and not where you want, besides the game cleverly updates the time chart immediately after the change of choice), the price (Who wants to pay a thousand rubles for text with pictures (i)), however, do sad. So PLAY!!!!!!!! In 428!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you like VN if you like detectives, if you like strange Japanese things or if you always wanted to walk around the alleys of Shibui.
