SELF is an unusual experience. While at first it may seem like a visual novel, the game turns out to be something else...what that is, though, is not very clear. Its main asset is undoubtedly the soundtrack and a pair of headphones will certainly make wonders but its plot turns out to be passable, dull and easy to ignore, which goes against the nature of a candidate to be a visual novel. Overall, this is a game that doesn't stand out in neither a positive nor a negative way, and one which will be easily forgotten after finished.

I felt for this child and wanted to do everything I could to help them. The game had me hooked in that way, but unfortunately, it squandered that enthusiasm away through some questionable storytelling devices and lackluster mini game sections. As purely a story experience, this is one I can recommend, if you can get through the broken-up design choice, but for those looking for anything else outside of a sorrowful and sinister puzzler, this is probably one you can leave behind.
