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.

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.

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.

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.
