Critic Reviews for Tokyo Dark: Rememberance

Tokyo Dark Remembrance doesn't get everything right. For a visual novel with point and click adventure elements, its game design and the way it flows puts a lot of limits on the player's options and its art style seems somehow mismatched from its well written plot and involving soundtrack. Nonetheless, the game has a lot of potential and very good ideas, it could have simply benefited from a better execution and design.

I enjoyed my time with it, about 10 hours, and Itō's quest to find the truth at great personal cost is compelling. That said, if you're looking for a solid point-and-click, I can't really recommend it. It's just too thin on that front.

The psychological terror of Tokyo Dark: Remembrance bothers and forces accurate decisions regarding levels of sanity and professionalism, making the game interesting and worrying, as the protagonist suffers throughout the entire story. The soundtrack is abundant, making the suspense atmosphere more evident, and the animations are clean. In the end, the game is a good option to buy.

Like the very best horror, Tokyo Dark takes a look at real-world issues and tensions in a way that's memorably shocking. There's a strong subtext to Tokyo Dark's story, and its told in a nuanced way, with memorable characters and intense imagery. Cherrymochi is a unique developer that has created a unique thing here, and for that the team has certainly earned my attention for whatever it has coming next.

Walking the line between a visual novel and classic adventure game, Tokyo Dark: Remembrance succeeds in telling its story while having players question their decisions.

Ultimately, my gripes with the game are limited. I have mixed opinions on specific endings and found the game a bit too short at 5 hours for the first full playthrough. The good far outweighs the bad with fantastic visual design, sound design, environment design taking center stage.

Tokyo Dark – Remembrance does an amazing job of combining the gripping storytelling of a visual novel with a choose your own adventure game. I think fans of horror and mystery genres will especially enjoy playing through all of the different outcomes.

These foibles were there, and noticeable, but I still loved the game. This speaks to the storytelling, which I would think is paramount in a visual novel game. Sure some of the character models were a little … off, but this is not some huge project. This game started as a Kickstarter, and I thank the people that supported it. I should also mention that there were improvements made to the base PC version to bring the game to the Nintendo Switch.
