Juniper's Knot reviews and comments

Just a wonder for the view. It Lasts about an hour and a quarter, no more, but, it will be a time invested in a short story, but that has you attentive all the time. With their touches and turns, slight, but they leave you touched. His music, for my taste, is somewhat average, although some parts are well used to create the tension and the environment that rewards. Without a doubt, despite being a visual kinetic Noworth, deserves all the attention and affection possible, especially for its two characters. Highly recommended.

Well... I must say : even if I already played it before it was on Steam, this story, how short it might be, still touches me where it matters. The artwork, the mood, the soundtrack... Dischan and CombatPlayer really made an awesome work. The characters are really insteresting and even thought people think it would need some sort of sequel, the format makes it a pleasant fable. The Game isn't in my first language (french) tought, I can't really recommend it to others... However, if you want to translate it, i could help...

Clearly, I love this Kinetic Novel. It's true that I didn't played a lot of them but this one was... wonderful. Really, the story is basic but really wroten in a way that you want to see what's gonna happen next and at the end, you're happy they're free together. The art is so beautiful! I loved every scenes that I seen! The guest's arts are amazing too! I would just like to see how you drawn them because, I'm not bad at drawing, but I still can't do that! (If there's any way for you to show, I hope you'll accept!) About the songs, if I say I'll download them, I think it's enough for you to understand. Thanks for this game!

Beautiful, well written story, which carries the mood very well. The english is a bit antiquated (if you want to call it like that), so the choice of words can be a bit confusing for non-native speakers or people who are not used to it, but not in a way that interrupts the story too much (at least for me). The soundtrack is awesome, and you get it for free as MP3 aswell; can't get better than that. The graphics are nice and have a rather high quality, which, as far as I can judge, isn't that common in free-to-play visual novels / kinetic novels. Overall, it's a great kinetic novel, well written, with a good soundtrack and nicely drawn, but it's very short; in the end it's probably better that way, good short story > bad stretched story imo. It's free and you get the soundtrack for free as well, so I can wholeheartedly recommend Juniper's Knot.
