great vn that have weird ending and satisfied ending

The investigative loop here is deeply mediocre, to the point where we felt like we were sleep-walking through each day's events. And the Switch version is riddled with errors: our "time played" counter never activated, there were typos galore, and there were moments where we could see code in the text boxes instead of the actual text.
In spite of all that? We're suckers for this sort of story. A close-knit group of friends who drifted apart over the years reunite after our meddling protagonist arrives, poking and prodding to find his mysterious pen pal: said friends must do whatever they can to stonewall this person, but find their secrets unwound one by one. It's emotionally cathartic and often funny, especially if you're playing with the over-the-top live-action sprites turned on.
Root Letter: Last Answer was endearing enough that we saw it through to the end, playing through all five routes. We just wish this story was wrapped around a better game.

Kinda mixed with this game. On one hand, I like how they represent Shimane, its a love letter to their culture, landscapes and history. I also adore the different endings you can get, i'll admit that the way of getting them is not very intuitive, but they are all so unique and wacky that i'm able to forgive that mistake. But on the other hand, the pacing of the story is slow and tedious and the protagonist might be the worst one I've ever seen in a V.N. He is genuinelly a bad person and throughout the story you'll see him bully some people in order to get what he wants, be extremelly agressive and even fatphobic towards others. I'd understand this type of behaviour if he was supposed to be the bad guy, but not at all, you have to believe that this indecent human being is a good person and deserves to be loved and praised.
In short, this game is decent, but it has some major problems. If you can look past them, you can find a great game, but for me it can't get more than 3 stars.
