Synergia - Official Trailer
Critic Reviews for Synergia
Synergia is the product of a small team wanting to create something important. The story between Cila and Mara is heartfelt and worthwhile, leaving you wanting more in the best way. Despite the few HUD issues and occasional glanced-over narrative point, Synergia has the heart and soul worthy of a great visual novel.
Synergia has a slow start, a scintillating middle, and some odd ends, but as an entire package it’s a solid yuri cyberpunk visual novel that has some forgivable offenses. With incredible aesthetics and real, raw characters, Synergia paints a dark and moody picture and, for the most part, delivers on its promises. If you’re interested in a cyberpunk love story that pulls heavily from classics like Blade Runner, Akira, and Ghost in the Shell that is perhaps too interesting for its own good, give Synergia a download.
What Synergia lacks in play, confining its players to a single advance-dialogue action, it makes up for in engrossing characters and story. Its cyberpunk world, lore, mysteries and soundtrack will draw you in, even if the central android/human love story is problematic and its ending very abrupt.
Unarguably, there is a substantial amount of content found in this short cyberpunk story, from its world to its characters and themes. There is also nice suspense, steady relationship building, and a beautiful yuri romance. Topped with wonderful art and an entrancing soundtrack, Synergia makes for quite an enjoyable and gripping game. Nevertheless, it should be noted that while this title is a visual novel, it does not feature many choice points and endings. The full game can be easily completed within two playthroughs, so those who are expecting to make more decisive choices or see more branchings may be disappointed by this largely linear setup. But if one does not actually mind that, then I say: It's recommended.
