I had a little bit of free time today so I decided to play a free visual novel called Signed X. You can download it for free and it’s all in English (and also apparently German)! The story is about our heroine Marty, who is a manga fanatic and wants to fall in love like they do in them shoujo mangos. One morning she finds a guy named Matt leaving a bouquet of flowers on her desk with a love confession. Attempting to get his attention and have a shoujo manga encounter, Marty drags her friend Warren into doing all sorts of crazy setup scenarios. Little does Marty realize that her friend just may have a crush on her as well. This review is spoiler free so no worries 😀
Our eligible mans:
Matt – In the IT club and seems completely clueless about the flowers he supposedly gave to Marty. He has a younger 12 year old brother.
Warren – Marty’s friend who constantly is forced to help her act out her shoujo manga fantasies to get Matt’s attention.
Instead of a game summary I’ve made a walkthrough! ヽ(=´▽`=)ﾉ
|Tell him to man up|
|Continue with the plan|
|I can’t risk it|
|Go Now!||Wait 5 minutes|
|Ask him about the flowers||Pretend nothing happened|
|Wrong M||Lesson Learned|
|Abort mission||Continue with the plan|
|Don’t ask him.||Ask him|
|Fine you can help.||Fine you can help.|
|Wait 5 minutes||Go Now!|
|—||Pretend nothing happened|
|Not M (Warren end)
||Signed M (Matt end)
Since the game is short I didn’t want to spoil anything but I just want to say that I enjoyed it a lot. The best part for me was the humorous writing and I kept laughing the whole way through :lol:. I have to say Marty’s determination is very impressive XD. As far as the dudes go, hands down Warren is the best guy and the obvious OTP. His ending is the best one and I recommend saving it for last. (*´ｪ｀*)ﾎﾟｯ I really liked the game layout overall and the fact that we could see which endings we had done already. My only complaint is there’s no CG gallery. Ok I realize the CGs are just cute chibis of the characters on photoshopped backgrounds but they were still cute!! I would have loved to go back and look at them again because （*´▽｀*）萌え～♪. Anyway the game is not long and since I’ve provided a guide it should make it quick to obtain all the endings. I highly recommend this and maybe I’ll check out the creator’s other game, Summer Found Me.
