Ready to get engrossed in another Visual Novel? Synergia looks promising, with a futuristic yuri cyberpunk setting. Giving off some Ghost in the Shell vibes, it's actually quite impressive. The intro video especially, not something I was expecting to see with a Visual Novel and sets the mood quite nicely.

The soundtrack is impressive too, hauntingly beautiful in some ways. The production value going into this is quite spectacular, for a Visual Novel it has such a thick atmosphere! Fantastic artwork too, seems like it's going to be one to keep an eye on.

Features:

  • Nearly 100 combined, unique backgrounds and CGs
  • 20+ characters, all with interesting backgrounds and personalities deeply woven into the narrative
  • An estimated 6-9 hours of gameplay
  • A unique, vibrant art aesthetic that pervades the neon dystopian setting of the game
  • A beautiful, vivid soundtrack that complements the game's aesthetic, composed by one of the composers of Katawa Shoujo and Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story
  • Choices that deeply affect the protagonist's journey and world around them, with multiple endings

You can find the demo on itch.io and Steam. The full release is scheduled sometime later this year.

The music is captivating and the intro works perfect to set oneself in the right mood. The quality of the video also seems more of an anime than from a video game. Aesthetically, with that beautiful red-ish palette, looks great too!

Also, I recently discovered that my partner enjoys watching me playing visual novels (replaying Phoenix Wright now) so it might be a good addition to my collection of games to play when we're together.

I'd call that more than a Ghost in the Shell vibe, but that doesn't bother me. The scene setup looks great. This might be the first visual novel I buy.

Really pretty and great soundtrack. Looks to be a bit on the short side for a visual novel, but I'm not sure whether that is good or bad - might be easier to finish it and get a fulfilling experience; it's been a while since I have gone through one of those big 40+ hour VNs.
