Dysfunctional Systems: Learning to Manage Chaos reviews and comments

Beautiful VN, I don't have it through yet, but I really like the characters so far. The Graphics are beautiful, the Music always fits and can be heard in between. I can't say much about the Story yet, but so far I've been felled. This is also just my second UN. The first one I played was Juniper'S Knot and I have to say, Dischan knows how to get over emotions. :`)

Dysfunctional Systems is a double-edged sword. I Would most like to give a neutral Rating. The Story told is well knitted and also waits with one turn or another For the Player that would not have been expected like this. But why I'm trending down to the Thumb are two Things. The Story couldn't fully get me. While it was nice, it wasn't captivating. On the other hand, I find the Situations in which one can influence the Path of the Story far too rarely. Therefore, no Recommendation from me.

Nice little Game to play 1-2 times. Played it through 2 times and fands quite nice. Pro:-Beautiful Story-Good Drawings-For Those who like to read (game consists only of reading and clicking around with the Mouse)--> Make decisions that change the story-Learn how to drink a Beer on ex (Beer Drink Stimulator)-Great soundtracks * * *-Save During the Decisions---> Allows quick Charging to make other Decisions Contra:-For those who do not like to read a lot this Game is not the Right--> Game consists only of reading and bit clicking around with the Mouse-game pulls very strongly into the Length

One of the first Visual Novels on STEAM that is definitely worth a Look. The first Chapter and the Prelude have been a little short with just under six Hours of Reading, but the Plot is quite interesting and makes You want more. The Artworks of the Characters and the Music form a very interesting Atmosphere. Even if a Stems change takes place in the graphic Design, the different Stems do not appear dislocated. Hopefully the next Episodes will appear more frequentially. Definitely worth a Look. I'm definitely looking forward to more Visual Novels on STEAM and more Episodes of Dysfuncional Systems.

I didn't play long but it was enough for me. Maybe the story becomes more interesting but, jeez it's so boring. The time I played I only got exposition talk, not a single choice, pretty lame dialogue that was badly written with anime figueres that had like 3 different facial expressions, all of which rather boring to look at.... I mean I can live with little game mechanics if at least the visual style was interesting (which it isn't) and the textg is interesting (which it isn't) The Idea sounds compelling which is why I bought the game but I don't even know how long they talk about bars and drinking alcohol or not until I might make my first choice! sry not going to play any further
