Mask of the Rose Reviews
Mask of the Rose's writing and characters shine, but the game underneath them never fully gels together.
Mask of the Rose is an incredibly ambitious dating sim - for better and worse, as its complexity is its greatest constraint.
Mask Of The Rose is an anthology of eldritch mysteries in a deliciously gothic world, but Failbetter's philosophy of weaving your own tale feels at odds with its dating sim promises.
Mask of the Rose is a solid offering by Failbetter games, with a deep story, interesting characters, and a fun clothing system, but an unfortunately hard to grasp storytelling system. (Review Policy)
Mask of the Rose is a visual novel with a plot that plays with an over-the-top supernatural situation in a well-developed context of a Victorian society. Trying to offer a lot of freedom to the player action but respecting a somewhat restrictive plot core, the work has good and bad points to it but it's a good choice for those who love interactive narratives.

Mask of the Rose is a wickedly clever romance/mystery hybrid with an intriguing setting, a twisty story, unique mechanics, and an open approach that is accepting of all genders and identities.
