Developer: Life a Little

Publisher: Sekai Project

Genre: Interactive Story

Olive Village... that was the name of this town, as well as this world.
This otherworldly town has a nostalgic, retro-like flavor.
For ages, it has prospered, and continues to prosper without end.
Every corner of the place is bustling with people, and warmth.
It is both old-fashioned, yet refreshingly new.

Neither magic nor spells exist here, but there is an aura of mystique.
How long has it been since I, Yumesaki Haruki, have come to this world?

It feels like it's been a few days. But it also feels like it's been over a year.
There is the passing of the day into night, back into day.
However, you don't feel the passage of time beyond that.
The flowers that have once blossomed continue to stay in full bloom.

Some folks are really into slice of life tales, and for others, it makes reading a visual novel a total slog. If you're interested in a slightly mystical take on the genre then perhaps A Butterfly in the District of Dreams will excite you. For most, however, it's an average tale which plods along with no real meaning for the majority of it. There's nothing harmful about this, and there's far worse you can play on Steam, but your hours of reading time might be better served elsewhere.

Really, I wish the writers would’ve dove into the themes of escapism more, rather than just hinting at and playing with them. After completing Ai’s and Yuriko’s story routes, it was easy to look back and see all of the unrealized potential.
