Paranormasight was actually so, so deliciously wonderful and the reason I gave it a 4.5 instead of 5 was because I wish there a bit more (challenging) puzzles and that it could be longer.
I'm aware it's a VN at its core and that I ultimately read through a great horror/mystery story, but there were some wonderful elements introduced but then weren't referenced again (turning the sound off in settings to avoid a curse? Genius.). I loved the weaving stories of each protagonist and that you couldn't continue with just one until playing the others to that specific point of their investigation. The game guides the player really well so that you don't miss a drop of the story.
I came for the horror element, but stayed for the art. It's absolutely wonderful and reminds me of a modern day Phoenix Wright style of characters and their expressions.
I thought I'd get a few days or a week out of this game, but I ended up finishing it one weekend! I was absolutely HOOKED! Couldn't stop playing until the end. I really hope that Square Enix continues with this line of adventurous VN, because I will be here for it on Day 1.

Nice review! I think it would be good to mark it as containing spoilers though, because you included that puzzle solution. That sort of thing is fun to figure out on one's own. : )
