An Octave Higher reviews and comments

It's not good at all Magic School, class struggle for Dummies, "yes then we have magic and we use it to make cinemas and buses", Nan but it's like in a light novel this magical system is ultra basic but the game is convinced that you will find it fascinating and spend his time explaining to you "1 + 1 = 2 WOH there it is crazy not?!?!" Ah then the usual loredump to sleep standing the characters are all assholes? Rich bourgeois of my two "Ah me I have nothing against the proletariat, I just want to not cross them in the street" STFU. Elise is no better I'm sorry, if one invites you to eat respects a little food and chouine not it's a pity for the decorations that were nice

5/5 Points! Important: The "Game" is above All a beautiful Story written in English and less a "Click, Level, farm, Knobel whatever Game. 99% Reading, 1% Decision-With relatively few Decisions, the magical profound Story is influenced in order to reach one of several completely different Endings. What's your Favorite End? -> A Story peppered with a lot of love, wisdom and detail with its own fantastic Logic, [...] but I don't want Spoilers:D-beautiful drawn Pictures-text (no Language)-Sounds appropriate to the Environment/Situation Game criticism written after 5 Runs (About 20h) and I still lack 2 Ends and always find (reads) you find new Beautiful interesting details. Thanks for the Game, please more of the game!

A very nice little VN, with a graphic style reminiscent of European comics in a well-built universe. I really liked the description of how the magic of this world works, which functions as mathematical formulas. The other peculiarity of this VN lies in the fact that you embody in turn 3 characters that interact with each other, and therefore the choices you make influence their relationship between them. For example, I detested the character of Frederic (not in the sense that he was bad, but he was unsympathetic) so I put him completely away from the other characters. Note that the VN is quite short (count 3h by reading everything, and 15 minutes in fast-forward), but the end suggests a possible sequel, that personally I would buy if ever it sees the day!

Good music, a very nice story (some of which will not leave you indifferent), a little humor and some pretty special graphics that hold the road. The game is based on a system of good understanding with the different characters (you do not play a specific character in this game!), your choices will impact on their relationships, which will bring you on one of the possible ends of the game (which means that , very often the story would drift according to several choices). The game is only in English, so if you can not read it, Bah, it is for your Apple. There is no voice, but I wonder if it would have been necessary to have it since you will eventually play (read) listening to classical music. Otherwise, the game is very addictive of its history, which is and will remain its strongest point.
