I thought that OUR RED STRING would be just another adult visual novel game all about getting laid, but it was more than that. I really enjoyed my time with this game and think that it had one of the better “stories” of a XXX visual novel that I have played through in quite some time. If you like your lewd visual novel games to have some real character and depth to them, I recommend you keep on reading and see why this game could be perfect for you.
Lena And Ian
The story is what I enjoyed most about OUR RED STRING and with just a few tweaks I actually think it could be one of the best stories in a lewd visual novel that I have played through. I do not want to spoil things so I will give you the basics. Our two main characters are Ian and Lena. These are two pretty good-looking young people who are a little bit lost in what they are looking for in love and life.
They both have their dreams (Ian’s being a book) and they get to know each other better through the course of the game. It is a relationship that can be filled with love, lust anger, and many other emotions too. It is the kind of story where you will get an idea of how you want it to play out in your head. It is great stuff, but there is another character that comes into the mix which I did not like. I think if the story had stuck with Ian and Lena all the way this would have been a slam dunk.
Life Is Strange
Ok, so the comparison I am about to make here may sound odd to many of you guys, but hear me out. I think that the visual style of OUR RED STRING is like a much brighter Life is Strange. I am not talking about Life is Strange the video game, more the comic books that were released. The game has some truly lovely hand-drawn art and each character looks great and has their own style which is always something that I like.
Despite the game being “cartoony” in its style, things are very much set in the real world. The sex scenes are great (even without animation) and I think they are even better if you play the game so that Lena and Ian have a deeper connection. The game does have some very tiny text which may be a bit annoying for some, also I do wish that they had voice acting in this game.
My Story, My Way
I got pretty invested early on with the story that OUR RED STRING was trying to tell. The thing is, I kind of started playing out my own narrative in my own head as it went on and things did not always match up. That is not a problem with the game of course if anything it says how good a job was done creating these characters that I cared about so much. This is a visual novel game so much of what you will be doing is reading the story and trying to decide how you want to respond to certain situations. I knew how I wanted Lena and Ian to end up so I really thought carefully about each choice. This does also have a fun pool mini-game which helps add a bit of variety to the gameplay.
Sometimes you play a visual novel game and right from the start it clicks with you. That is the kind of experience I had when I played OUR RED STRING. I got very attached to the story and wanted these two to actually make it and have a proper relationship. There is some awesome XXX content here do not get me wrong, but this was one lewd visual novel where I ended up caring more about the story.
