Okay. This story is incredible. The plot was really fascinating. It give you a sherlock holmes vibe and the ancient lore in this story was really well constructed. The mystery is pretty fun with some obvious clues and some very tricky one. The interaction between MC with support characters also seemed smooth and nice. My only complaint is the stat meter. Well it damn confusing, i was wondering was it really usefull. But i guess that add toward books plus point. Overall very entertaining book

Of the thriller genre, this is my favorite. I may be biased considering how I like sleuth and investigation stories but this one got me hooked. It's creepy in every way and the story is well written and well thought. I also love how you can choose archetypes like a pokemon trainer choosing a starter. And how I love the change of characters. I was enjoying myself one moment then.. okay, I'm a new person. But that's very awesome. I wonder if there will be any chance for a second book.

I've never liked crime or investigation stuff but I've never played such an extensive choices game. It took me a whole day just playing through it. The mysteriousness, the creepiness, the through investigations. And what is most interesting is the sanity stat, it could literally change everything perspectively, either bring you close to doom or get you by just another day with you stable. I know it's silly but I wish there was romance lol maybe the male lecturer? Thank you for spooking me! :(
