Haruto is the first character that was released for Toraware no Palm. I would normally do a short description of what he is like as a character but this profile image above does all the work, so I’ll just straight up translate that below. Also, apologies for the image spam and how much space they take (vertical images are so hard to scale). WARNING: There’s going to be massive spoilers in the summary section below so don’t read if you’re going to play this (also some CG spoilers)!
I’ve been playing this game for the better part of 2 months and ended up really enjoying it so I figured, eh, why not write a post? I’ll be doing a short introduction post about the game and its elements, and then two more posts summarizing the two routes and my experiences going through them. Also, I haven’t found many reviews on this game except for the amazing Bunny, who did an in-depth review on the game play, extras, and Haruto’s route, so please check out Bunny’s blog HERE too!
I’ve been replaying some routes to collect calls that I’ve missed and so, since I’m doing it anyway, I’ve decided to make a call time guide. I’ll be updating this as I continue through the routes so check this post often! I’ll be editing in notifications too to let people know what I’ve completed and where I’m at.
Decided to write an introduction, some thoughts, and provide resources on the latest game that has consumed my life, and the lives of many others.
I’m just going to start by saying I love this game SO MUCH. It’s unique, clever, and the humor of the characters is so on point for me. I’m an internet child and so hearing their pop culture references, their slang, and the way they express themselves through their typing was just so funny and familiar. The overarching story of Mystic Messenger probably isn’t going to blow your mind but in my opinion its execution is where Cheritz deserves all the kudos. Even when you see tropes coming at you miles away, the characters and their stories pull you in and it’s just so much fun to chat with them and experience the story.
I felt like each of the characters had relatable struggles and they all learn a valuable life lesson, which I’m sure you could take away from this game. On another note, they’re all so positive and supportive which is a nice thing to experience from time to time (when the conflict is external rather than internal). Seriously, Mystic Messenger is just a great game that will hopefully make you laugh, cry, and love.
