About

“Hey, Mister... Are you a lonely person?”

When his mother dies, our protagonist returns home to Wales for the first time in ten years to attend her funeral. Then, on a walk in the countryside, he encounters a mysterious young girl.

Though her face is expressionless and her words are cold, the man soon forms a friendship with her… of sorts. However, their meetings only leave him with more questions.

How did she know his mother, why does she have such a morbid fascination with death, and why does she look so much like his childhood sweetheart?

But only one thing is certain: there is much more to Lily than meets the eye.

Lily of the Valley reviews and comments

Translated by

The Game to pass is not recommended, because after its end there is a feeling wasted time. The Ending seems to me crumpled, made hastily. From the point of view of scenario setting would be a fat minus. The Plot of the game I could also call a clashith and unfinished. I did not get the story of the protagonist, as I did not feel the depth of his character. All that time reading that I took on this novel, I was waiting for much more interesting facts or scenes that could better reveal the main character (and the heroes in general), which I did not receive. You can certainly write that there is a much more complex plot with a clear psychological and philosophical note, which may be so, but the suggestion of this in the format of the novel is somewhat crumpled and scanty. The Most unpleasant disadvantage of this game in the automatic lock, because it is impossible to get all the achievements. I do not find it necessary and I think that depriving the player of the right to choose is not ethical. Of The pros should be noted that in general, "Lily of the Valley"-a nice and short story with a nice drawing. It would be Worth to evaluate the way the original soundtracks sound harmoniously to the novel. Drawing Sprites and TSG to the novel is also not bad, but I have a question for what reason the game contains so few sprites, images of locations. The Game is worth its 79 rubles, probably only because of the efforts of the artist, but no more. The True price of the novel, in my interpretation, 45-50 rubles. And then, I recommend to take a discount, if any at all.

Lily of the Valley-a sad visual novel, about the meaning of life and death. Plot. Novella tells us the story of a young guy 30 + years old, feeling an aging wreck and long lost meaning in his life, and recently lost and mother. Returning to his home in a small Welsh village to attend the funeral, our hero will meet, a lonely girl who presented him as Lily. Short intercourse with her, forever change the days of his life, and perhaps his understanding of the nature and meaning of death. Novella is sad, and discusses a quite serious topic that distinguishes it from the general range of VN. One Thing but, from such idea it was possible to squeeze in times a deeper plot, than it has turned out here. The Story is predictable, generally good, but not over. Gameplay. The Elections are few (one in essence), the endings are two. Initially, the ending hinted that it was final, that is, after it everything was blocked. It fits well into the concept of the game, but as the people rebelled, after the end, you can unlock the game with or without save. In addition, after the end of the game, you can turn on the visual design, as it was in the original, that is, with a more rough drawing. Graphics and sounds. The Backs are decent, the characters are drawn in a specific manner, that is more in such a puppet style. The Music is sad, and works well for the atmosphere. As a result. Good, sad novella, on a serious topic, the britliness of our being, the meaning of life, and the acceptance of the existence of death. The Plot of the IMHO could be more profound, but in general, and in this form, everything came out quite at the level. Fans of visual novels in general and on philosophical topics in particular, read. 8 Lilies out of 10 Review on DLC: Lily of the Valley-Original Soundtrack http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1126011506 P.
