The visual novel Kuroinu Redux, developed by Liquid, tells the story of a betraying protagonist seeking to end a centuries-long war. As a story-driven game focused on narrative and character development, Kuroinu Redux excels at submerging players in its treacherous tale of deceit and heartbreak. So let’s see what this game is all about and how it plays!

About the game

Kuroinu Redux boasts an engaging narrative that keeps the player invested in the story from beginning to end. The game's story is well-written, with a focus on character development and storytelling. The player is presented with choices that affect the story's outcome, leading to multiple endings. The game also features a unique battle system that combines turn-based combat and real-time strategy elements. The player must strategically position their units on the battlefield, making use of their strengths and weaknesses to gain the upper hand. The game's difficulty is well-balanced, offering a challenge without being frustratingly difficult.

Following the young mercenary Vult and his Black Dog Mercenaries, the game opens with the allied races of Eos near victorious in their fight against the dark-elven queen Olga’s demon army. In a desperate final push, they hire Vult and his men to help end the conflict once and for all. However, Vult refuses to stay loyal to those who once supported him, swiftly betraying the Seven Shields Alliance to align with Queen Olga instead.

With Vult leading invasions into former friends’ lands and strongholds, Kuroinu Redux establishes itself as a gripping tragedy. Betrayal and suffering are themes heavily represented throughout its two-hour runtime. While the story keeps players engrossed, combat remains largely sidelined, acting as more of a backdrop for character and relationship development.

Visuals and Sound

Kuroinu Redux's visuals are stunning, with beautiful character designs and detailed backgrounds. The game's art style is consistent throughout, creating a cohesive and immersive world. The game features full Japanese voice acting by seasoned professionals, adding to the game's immersion. The sound effects and music are well-done, adding to the game's atmosphere.

Compared to other visual novels with a similar theme, such as Fate Stay Night, Kuroinu Redux offers a more mature and darker story. The game's focus on character development and storytelling sets it apart from other games in the same genre. The game's battle system also adds a unique element to the game, making it stand out among other visual novels.

Review: 8/10

Overall, Kuroinu Redux deserves praise for its moving narrative and melancholic tone, scoring an 8 out of 10. However, its weak combat and lack of choice may be deal-breakers for some; its memorable characters and subversive story make it a memorable, if bittersweet, experience worth recommending to visual novel fans, especially those enamored by tales of tragedy.


With a blend of betrayal, grief, and bittersweet endings, Kuroinu Redux crafts a story that sticks with players long after finalizing its bittersweet conclusion.
