The House in Fata Morgana is over 40 hours long, and in those 40 hours, you'll maybe get to make about three decisions. It is a visual novel in the strictest sense of the word, and you must be prepared for that going in. But with a fantastic, original, slow-burn story about love, loss, hurt, forgiveness, and recovery, it's one of the best visual novels out there - and your patience will be paid off in the end.

It’s hard to extrapolate on just how profound an effect The House in Fata Morgana had on my psyche without spoiling perhaps one of the biggest secrets about it.

There are moments where Fata Morgana becomes very uncomfortable to witness, and a little like when I played Saya no Uta, I did need to put it down from time to time. This game is nowhere near as explicit or extreme as that one, but thematically it is, if anything, more demanding of the player. It's a little like how the real Grimm brothers fairy tales are deeply uncomfortable to read, though it's certainly not of the extreme, overt violence of a Marquis de Sade novel. If you want to see how a visual novel could be elevated to something approaching "high art," you owe it to yourself to play The House in Fata Morgana. The fact that the Switch release comes with even more stories and features as a "complete" edition just makes it all the more essential.

The House in Fata Morgana is a one-of-a-kind visual novel. Its bleak nature may be off-putting to some, with its slow start and tragic tales. But if a tragic story sounds like your cup of tea, there is something to be gained from each of these peculiar tales and the truly uncommon storytelling premise.

The House In Fata Morgana had a profound effect on me: I now have an answer to the question of "what was the last game to leave you in tears", and they went from tears of sadness to joy after the main story's stinger. I'm not sure there's going to be another visual novel on Switch that hits me this hard - but I'd love to see someone try.

The House In Fata Morgana is a non-stop, balls to the wall game. It is relentless, unflinching and much like the characters in the game, every time I walked away, I was left thinking about Morgana’s world.

I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about The House in Fata Morgana. My time with the game was well spent, and I crave a replay as soon as possible, so I can dive even deeper and appreciate the game at a different pace. This definitive version of the Fata Morgana series is perfectly suited for the Switch, allowing you to read on the go as you move through one of the most beloved visual novels in the genre.

The House in Fata Morgana borrows the moves of classic tragedies, performing events past to demonstrate the tragedy of the current. It is impressive how little time it takes to understand the motives and dreams of the Rose Manor residents, even when they fall to their lowest extent. The storytelling, art style, and music harmonizes its themes of vintage times and freely mold each scene from childish hope to shock and terror. Having every game in this series on one of the most convenient gaming systems for visual novels makes it very difficult to argue its value.
