A heartfelt story that demonstrates the positive impact online relationships and communities can have on people. A must-play.

Videoverse is game that managed to hit me with the force of a truck in various ways, from the more subtle things like the in-game community's reaction to a collapsing world around them to the parts that were more upfront, like Emmett and Vivi's budding relationship.

VIDEOVERSE surprised me tremendously. It is a great story that hit me with strong nostalgia and emotions I felt years ago. Players will find a lot of things to identify with here and it carries an important message that everyone should know. This is the perfect late night adventure that will take you back to the past of the Internet.

Videoverse joins an immensely charming, detailed snapshot of early 2000s online fandom with an intermeshed web of heartfelt and incredibly human (sub)plots.

VIDEOVERSE is a delightful trip back to the heyday of 90s social media sites and online gaming communities. It impeccably recreates the ambiance of that era, but it ultimately struggles to provide meaningful and lasting engagement. If you’re seeking a brief nostalgia fix and don’t mind the lack of deep gameplay, VIDEOVERSE is worth a look. However, for those looking for a more immersive and compelling gaming experience, it may fall short of expectations.

Videoverse is a nostalgia-fueled visual novel about classic gaming communities. Its central story is both heart-breaking and heart-warming, but at its center is a powerful message about friendship and community.

VIDEOVERSE may seem like a product for a niche audience, and admittedly it probably hits different if you experienced the early internet, but its ideas and themes are relevant today. If you’re at all interested in stories about online communities and relationships, VIDEOVERSE is well worth your time.
