I was gonna agree with Celeste, but nah, the first post was this and I cannot disagree. Definitely would like to see your, or anyone on staff’s, thoughts on Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~.
Code: Realize is extremely good and the type of thing I’d love to see more coverage of on Waypoint, especially with the sequel/PS4 collection having been released last week and Aksys having 3 more otome games out this year. I’m not gonna say it’s the most brilliant handling of (steampunk) London and its monorachy ever, but it goes some surprising places that are handled largely well and most importantly: all of the guys and the dynamic the protagonist has with them are extremely good. Actually, truly most importantly: the protagonist is also extremely good. It also has one of the best route structures I’ve seen in a VN I’ve played, with a vaguely episodic common route allowing each character route to feel like a good continuation of the previous events before tying everything together at once in the final route.
(Route order I’d suggest for the most satisfying learning of plot details, since you can very easily indicate who you want to end up with, is definitely Impey Barbicane -> Abraham Van Helsing -> Victor Frankenstein -> Count Saint-Germain -> Arsene Lupin and yes that’s who you date in this game.)
