I’m a big fan of visual novels and enjoy the ones that have a great visual identity. Over the weekend, I discovered A Summer’s End – Hong Kong 1986 from Oracle and Bone. A Summer’s End – Hong Kong 1986 is a visual novel set in Hong Kong in 1986 that follows Michelle’s day to day life in one summer. VA-11 HALL-A is one of my favourite games of all time thanks to its art, writing, and music. A Summer’s End – Hong Kong 1986 looks like it nails the art and music for me. I look forward to the story that will cover changing cultures and world views. The game has been inspired by 80s anime, city pop, and more. Watch the launch trailer for the PC version below:
As of now, A Summer’s End – Hong Kong 1986 is set to release on April 23rd on Steam for PC platforms. Check out the Steam page here. You will likely need to login to view the page since it is classified as a mature game on Steam. I’m definitely interested in checking it out when it releases next month on PC. Oracle and Bone have announced plans to bring it consoles, iOS, and Android in the future. Check out the official website here. What do you think of the game so far and do you enjoy visual novels on iOS?
