Project Reset review
by Mia Blais-Côté

It all started when I opened the VN, only to come across a basic title screen. No background image! The music is nice, at least. I start the game and there is total silence. During the whole story. This is not encouraging. I read the story, trying to get attached to the characters, but nothing helps. It's clichéd, boring, the dialogue seems childish at times... then, bang, without warning a error screen. I thought that the game was buggy or done in a hurry, but when I played 3 more games with Skip Activated, I understood that it was intentional and that I had to click on "Ignore" to continue. So be it. That doesn't change the fact that I didn't like the story. Still with Skip, I went to read the end, because I was curious to know the end of this rather peculiar story (let's say), and it's about the 4th wall broken. I can't stop thinking about Doki Doki Literature Club. A guy who meets girls, who joins an art club, who witnesses strange events, an end that breaks the 4th wall... I'm not saying Project Reset is a copy of Doki Doki Literature Club. Maybe it's a tribute to DDLC. But I didn't like Doki Doki Literature Club and I like Projet Reset even less. UPDATE #1: The title screen now has a background image, but still no music during the game. UPDATE #2 : The story must have new content, but nothing extraordinary.
