I do wonder if there will ever be a topic about this game where people don’t start discussing Masami’s possible age. (Not that I’m complaining - I’d get all up in that (again) if it didn’t seem sort of off-topic.)
As for the demo: Yes please. I liked the investigations (and had no trouble picking the right words), although it does kind of drag on when you do more than one playthrough. While the player gets to forego the text-input, I’d very much like to know which content that’ll make me miss out on. Other than the achievements, the warning at the beginning is rather vague.
I also quite liked Junko’s appearance and Momoko’s implied death at her hands actually gets me all excited to see how things will develop, as well as Toshi’s nerdgasm for mystery-solving. I played through the game with my usual calm, collected and stoic MC first, but went the pervert route on the second run just for the straddling scene.
Still, as much as I enjoyed the investigative work, I admit I’ll be glad to get off that island. It just doesn’t have that nitty-gritty dirt feeling my ronin needs to feel at home.
Other than that, it’s hard to give objective critique because the detective work went quite smoothly for me and I didn’t have many difficulties on that front - and my subjective ‘critique’ is just 1. not enough Masami let me romance her dammit pls I need it and 2. I need the full game right now.
That said, take your time and I’ll be looking forward to the new installment.
