Story/Characters

Jessica and Amira have set up a food court. It’s been their dream ever since they were kids and now that they can finally fulfil it, will they be able to handle the pressure?

This short visual novel follows the two childhood friends as they prepare to hold a food court during Ramadan. As pressure is poured on during their big night the girls realise that they have different expectations of the other. This obviously leads to conflict, but that’s the perfect opportunity to think about their relationship and learn about themselves as well. Based on the choices you make there are different ways this story can go, but I’ll leave that for you, dear reader, to discover.

Graphics, Sound and Performance

The graphics use a drawn art style, with a background that changes based on the setting and the main characters in the foreground. There’s some sporadic animation of the characters, as the focus is mostly on the dialogue.

There’s a relaxed background music that really sets the mood, and changes with the setting. There’s no voice acting, though.

Performance was smooth. Then again, it’s a small visual novel, so not very taxing on your computer.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a small visual novel that last about an hour, then I recommend you try it out. Though, that’s also its shortfall, since it feels like you rushed through it.

Positive:

  • Interesting characters
  • Good storyline
  • Multiple endings add replay value

Negative:

  • It’s very short

SCORE: 7/10
