Highway Blossoms could be the perfect visual novel game for those of you looking for something memorable, but also something quick and easy to get into. This is a very linear style of visual novel game and that is fine, but it is important to note this if you are looking for something that is offering more of an interactive experience.
The New Gold Rush
This is a very heartfelt story and one that is easy to get into. Our main character is a girl called Amber who due to the passing of her grandfather is in a bit of a rough spot. Highway Blossoms sees her in her RV in the American Southwest. An old prospector’s journal was found and he revealed that he left gold all over the place and people are scrambling to find it.
Amber could not care less about this, but she is down where this is happening, and while she wants to be left alone. She meets someone who changes things considerably. It is a very well-told story and one that when you hear about it sounds rather uninteresting, but I thought it was very well done. It in many ways has the tone and style of an indie movie.
The Sights Of The Southwest
I love the visuals of the game and the fact they have it sent in a proper location is something I thought was really cool. Highway Blossoms has a very laid-back kind of art style and it is rather unique. The real-life locations, drawn in the way that they are do make for some fantastic backgrounds. The character models look great. They look cute, sexy, and like real people which is something I like. The only thing is that there was clearly more than one person working on the art for this game and sometimes they can look a little different from one scene to the next.
The game does not have any voice acting, but what Highway Blossoms does have is a tremendous soundtrack. It is very acoustic sounding and I thought it was so good that I actually put a bunch of it onto my iPod. The only thing is that sometimes the music will cut out and it feels like it is not supposed to.
Just Go With The Flow
One of the things that may put people off about playing this game is that there are no choices to be made at all. This is a linear story that goes from begging to end and there is no interaction from the player. The story is strong enough to pull this off in my opinion, but I get why for some this is not enough. The game does have a XXX patch you can get and I liked this. Not just to see boobs, but the couple of sex scenes that the game has felt very natural and not forced.
I thought that Highway Blossoms was a very well-told story and a story that made me care about the characters. I mentioned that it had an indie movie vibe to it and I stand by that, but I also get a bit of Life is Strange: Before the Storm vibes from it as well.
The lack of interactivity may be an issue for some, but if you enjoy stories and do not want to have to make choices, you will really enjoy this.
