As it is currently, Chaos;Child did not make me feel under either a positive nor a negative delusion.

Chaos;Child delivers a disturbing and engaging story that not only stands on it's own, but helps to expand the worlds of other parts of the Science Adventure Series. It's just a shame that it takes so long to experience that story, and that the choices you make to find every piece of info and characterization are weirdly designed. Chaos;Child isn't as good as Steins;Gate at the end of the day, but a more memorable cast of characters and a more distinctive art style would help future entries stand alongside Steins;Gate instead than behind it.

And interesting adventure with lots of hours to think about its deep plot, unstable characters and a great environment.

Chaos;Child is a great example of a visual novel done right. Its interesting and engaging storyline keeps you wanting more, with the characters lifting an already good game to another level. Some dynamics miss the mark slightly, but ultimately add to the bigger picture and widen the scope of the plot in general, so they're worth persevering with across multiple playthroughs.

Chaos;Child is an incredibly dark commentary on the failings of modern day society. Both the benefits and drawbacks of the technology that keeps us all connected is touched upon, and it's not afraid of using its characters to make a point. While the twists and turns wind up going down a sci-fi heavy route in its back half, Chaos;Child never forgets that the main issues are societal. This is a visual novel that'll leave you thinking long after the ending has occurred.

Chaos;Child is a visual novel that needs to be taken slowly and digested over a few days. There are still scenes that I can't stop thinking about because of how graphic and powerful they were. Steins;Gate sets the bar really high for me and Chaos;Child is the first visual novel in a long time to come so close to that emotional of impact on my mental state.

Chaos;Child is, for better or worse, a 5pb visual novel.

Chaos;Child is a grim, gory murder mystery that could have been brilliant with some judicious edits to its content and pacing.
