Familiar Travels – Volume One Direct Download
You were in a situation that many post-graduates found themselves in, degree on wall, parent’s house, everywhere seem to think your degree is just as useless as you do. The uniquely disparaging Quarter Life Crisis has came to you in full force, and you have been left with nothing to do.. And when university has set us up for unreal expectations of the future, there’s only one thing left to do.. Grad School. Through insane luck or divine magic, you’ve received your acceptance letter to Vanaheim Home of the Vanaheim Institute of Magic and Technology There’s only one problem, you’re distinctly lacking in the magic department. In fact, this is the first time you’ve become aware of magic’s existence. The internet as a whole was a huge inspiration for this game, We tried to set out to do something new that hasn’t been done in visual novels before by giving people an open world and focusing on character types and personalities that people really see in the modern day, instead of typical archetypes.
We aren’t afraid to talk about issues like mental health, toxic masculinity, issues of self-identity and discovery, and the more complicated nuances of relationships. The candid and straightforward nature of the game is part of the reason I decided to reach out to you. The people who play the game really connect with it, and I want to have more people take a look and hopefully get the same impact from the game that the game and the community around it had on us. Familiar Travels is a good visual novel game! It’s unique among the genre by being “open world”, in the way that you can choose which place to go, and in any order. You tend to have multiple scene choices, which are important events. But you can only experience that one scene in any given day ( or night ), which will improve your relationship with that character or characters. Time will pass in the game after this scene, and you can either choose to go to sleep or wander around to find more scenes/characters to interact with. So each day you have two chances to explore around and experience scenes. As you look around these places, there’s some objects in the environments you can examine. But not as much as I’d like in a game that claims to be akin to a point and click adventure game. The background art, luckily, is pretty good and filled with detail. Not always, but I’m impressed.
Familiar Travels isn’t without flaws, of course, one of those flaws being the barrier to entry. That barrier being: “OMG, furries, get them away from me!” But if you can get by that barrier, either if you’re already a furry or just someone who likes great characters/stories, then you’re in for a treat! There’s bugs, typos, and grammar errors that are steadily being obliterated by the SINGLE hardworking developer. However, another barrier to entry is that it’s a visual novel game with SOME sexual themes. If that isn’t your cup of tea, I’d advise you stay away. Even with that warning in mind, Familiar Travels is sort of tame… but you will eventually encounter adult scenes with each main character, and you can choose to skip them, or indulge in them. The writing for these scenes is superb and honestly entrancing. Which is saying a lot considering how awful adult visual novels tend to be.
Familiar Travels – Volume One Pre-Installed:
In order to enjoy Familiar Travels at its fullest, you should play it a few times through, choosing 1 of the 6 main characters to “romance”. The story slowly unfolds more, and things begin to make more sense. Playing it only one time through won’t give you the full story, due to gaps in events and scenes you didn’t experience. You can’t do every scene in one playthrough after all. But it’s very much worth it, and you’ll find that the writing is surprisingly good! The only issue is that sometimes, side characters won’t know who you are even if you already met them, or the complete opposite scenario will occur with them. You will know THEM but you haven’t even met them yet. This does create some major plotholes, but it never broke the game completely for me. Main characters will sometimes talk and act as if you already experienced an event with them, or as if they never experienced that event ( such as a character somehow forgetting that she already went to the Red Light District with you, and to the arcade.
