Despite a few quirky animations, Herald provides an excellent story supplemented by a beautiful art style. This is a small scale point-and-click affair; if you're looking for a bite-sized drama, you've found your game.

While Herald: An Interactive Period Drama has some incredibly annoying issues, it's still shaping up to be an interesting experience overall. With some of these rough edges filed down, this could be one of the most compelling visual novels around. Hopefully, the next two books take what this game excels at and makes them even better, with feedback from gamers taken on-board.
