About

Welcome to Elsewhere High, "a school for exceptional children."

In this visual novel, players are able to immerse themselves in the world of the outcast. Each student at Elsewhere High has fallen short of expectations at their original high school; they've flunked out, skipped class, wrote threatening notes, or grew to be a reprehensible bully. Friendships spawn, and feuds arise, but amidst the teen drama and angst it quickly becomes clear that Elsewhere is much, much more than it seems.

Chapter one is the free first chapter in a planned multi-chapter series. Subsequent chapters will be sold at a small cost.

Largely kinetic, Elsewhere High allows players to make various choices that lead them down intermittently varying paths. Each reader will reach the same destination, but is able to make small choices that affect individual scenes rather than the arching narrative.

Elsewhere High: Chapter 1 - A Visual Novel reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
"Elsewhere High: Chapter 1-A Visual Novel" Personally has a story that does not catch my attention, I found quite boring, the decisions you make during the story will not do precisely changes for different desenlances, the soundtrack is quite Repetitive and design personally for my taste pretty bad, could have worked something but good. Besides that, the game is not well configured and closes also that you touch open and close a couple of times for you to play it, its midpoint in favor is that if you want achievements for free, you will get 5 achievements only to read the story , the other 6 imagine that will be the same but you will have to pay 3 euros to buy the second part, which I see a waste of money as it will be like buying a Coke and spill it on the floor. Personally There are many free visual novels on steam that if worthwhile, with good design and soundtrack that does not try to get money in the middle of the game leaving the achievements in half to annoy your statistics. Best regards

Elsewhere High: Chapter 1-Visual novella (quite short, easy to read, for an hour and a half). Language and plot. Novella only in English, and at the beginning of the language is used rather metaphorical, some times even through Chur metaphorical. What is somewhat unusual, the narrative is not from the first person, but suspended, as if the announcer reads the book. In the first chapter we will tell the story of a guy named Derek, because of the complex nature of a new type of strange school, called Elsewhere High. Lessons are held in the form of Socrates dialogue, and a walk at night for the Forbidden Zone, may entail a meeting, with unknown horrors. In the first chapter we are introduced to the characters, and lead intrigue. Next you need to buy DLC with the rest of the episodes (one at the time of writing this review). Gameplay. We Read the text, we make elections. The Choice affects only that with whom we will talk more of two new acquaintances, our hero. The Main storyline, from the election does not change, as well as achievements. Without DLC by the way, to collect the "perfect game" will not come out, because part of the achievements are tied to DLC. Graphics and sounds. And the backs and characters are drawn pretty decently. In the beginning it is said that it is better to play with headphones, and this is true, because the music here conveys a good mood. A Separate nuance is connected with the engine-it is crooked. To Open the game in full screen is impossible, when you try to get it to lengthen, the picture sometimes crawls a little, leaving the black edge. As a result. Quite an interesting novella, with a horror. Minus in the Jepizodichnosti, because because of it many stories are unexecuted, as well as in the Krivoatom engine. 7 Schools out of 10. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1126011506 P.
