Living the dream
The visual novel genre is a very Japanese one which has never really caught on over in the West but which has managed to snatch a few fans, thanks to their mix of bold storytelling, vibrant visuals and in some cases, lots of scantily clad young ladies. Clannad is one of these games, although it's not like Do You Like Horny Bunnies? and is fairly tame on the scantily clad young ladies front. It's a pretty decent example of this type of thing though, so if you are a fan, it's worth a closer look. The story revolves around a young lad whose mother died when he was young, leaving just him and his father. However, his father's drinking problem led him to become violent and he struck his son, an event which caused the boy to lead something of a delinquent's life. When he meets a girl though, his attitude turns around and things make a change for the better. Clannad doesn't offer much in the way of gameplay, with the player simply required to follow the story along, with the only real interaction being various "decision points" where you must make a choice which then affects how the narrative proceeds. So if you are a gamer who craves interactivity in their games, this is not going to be for you. However, if you prefer to take a back seat and just want to enjoy a story, then this is a pleasantly relaxing experience. The story is an interesting one, with some well-drawn characters who are believable and likeable, while the visuals are attractive enough to keep the eye hooked too. All in all, a good example of the visual novel.
