Sakura Spirit is as close to an eroge you’ll ever get on Steam. The day when H-games are allowed on Steam is not yet upon us, and while this game may not have H-scenes (sorry guys!), it is still a short, enjoyable experience nevertheless.
Emphasis on short. The game doesn’t take that long to beat, and it is very limited in terms of interactivity. But hey, this is a visual novel, after all. Oh and about that interactivity? Yeah, there’s only one choice. Even with just one choice, I still managed to enjoy the game (Sakurano Maeko best girl).
In regards to the game’s story, I can’t really say much. There’s a very basic story put in place, but most of the game leans heavily towards the fanservice side. Now, that’s not necessarily too bad, but if you’re expecting some sort of KEY-quality story, then this would not be the VN for you.
The art is fantastic, although the excessive glare on the girls’ bodies kept me wondering if they were made of plastic or not. As for music, it’s alright, nothing too spectacular.
Overall, I’d have to say that Sakura Spirit’s sole selling point is the amount of fanservice included.For a game on Steam, that’s fantastic. There aren’t many like it, if any at all. I hope this leads to more eroge-ish titles in the future. I’m still awaiting the day when I can play the uncensored version of Kanon, or maybe even Shuffle! on Steam. Anyways, be on the lookout for future Sekai Project releases.
