I will admit that I went into Teaching Feeling with the thought that this is yet another visual novel style game that is just all about sex. Do not get me wrong, we have some sexy moments here, but there is far more heart in this game than I was expecting and I found myself far more attached than I thought I would.
Take My Girl
The premise of the game is rather strange. One day a very odd man shows up and thanks to you helping him out. His way of repaying you is with a young girl as a gift. Now, this girl has been through hell. She is all scared up, wearing what looks like a sack as a dress and she shows no emotion what so ever. He tells you that you can do whatever you want with her!
Right there and then, I thought I knew exactly what the game was getting at, but that is not actually the case at all. Rather than adding more to this young girls woes, Teaching Feeling is a game about making her “feel” again. It is very interesting and it actually made me care for her as a character and want to see her happy.
Make Her Happy
The idea of the game is that you have plenty of choices to makes. These range from taking her out for the day, getting her pancakes, buying her a nice dress and just showing her that there is more to life than the horrible abuse she has suffered so far. It is rather hard-hitting stuff and I was so worried about making her sad I was always second-guessing what I was doing as I wanted her to be happy.
It is a very interesting kind of gameplay mechanic and one that I really cannot think of experiencing before in a game of this style. Now as great as the idea of looking after this young lady is. The overall gameplay can be rather repetitive so I do wish that they changed a few things in this regard up to keep it nice and interesting.
Collect Them All
While I found trying to make this young girl happy the best motivation for playing the game. Teaching Feeling actually has many different things for you to collect. These are mostly new items of clothing and accessories for her, but I was surprised at how addictive it was trying to get her a new outfit to wear. Not just so that she “looks hot” but so that she smiles and is happy that someone is doing something nice for her.
I know that some people get into these kinds of games for one thing and one thing only. But I must admit I found this to be a very nice change of pace.
Overall I found Teaching Feeling to be a far more engaging game than I thought it would be. While I do wish there was more variety to the overall gameplay. As far as visual novel style games go. I really like how the goal here is not just all about sex but is about making a young girl “feel” about things and experience things for the first time.
