A game by Bentosmile (ported to Flash by Raitendo)

Bentosmile's comments:

Air Pressure is a visual novel game that I've been working on on-and-off for a while. It has only three different endings, but a lot of branches!

I hope you enjoy it. It is quite a serious game, I guess. :)

Wow...

An amazing idea!! So powerful and confusing and... Well it raises a lot of questions that I wont ask here because it will be a spoiler!
Yet its a great "story" which makes you think about love and your reliance on it!!

sweet and scary

what i liked:
-the art
-the music (it was not annoying even though it was on a loop) it kind of gave me this nostalgic feel, like when i used to play Pokemon when i was little
- the depth and story.

what I didn't like:
....
hmmm... i felt really uncertain throughout the whole thing. which is accurate to life, so it's not a bad thing, it just made me uncomfortable.

over all this was a great game. It really made me think. and honestly made me worry about the person I am right now.
it was great. thanks for sharing this game.

Interesting

I wanted to play the three different endings before doing a review and after 4 tries I got them all.

1st- I stayed with her and apparently had sex with her, at least that was the vibe I was getting from it. The ending seemed a bit weird, about not hurting veins or arteries or something which confused me a little. The conversations on the love side were nicely played out with many choices on either "branch" of direction.

2nd- I stayed with her but did not have sex. This ending was sort of wierd but not as wierd as the first. I stayed with the girl who I depended on and was neither sad or happy for it. The conversations were slightly less played out then the love one.

3rd- I left the girl forever. This ending made more sense to me then the others and didnt give too much of a feeling of "What just happened there". The conversations were better played out then the 2nd and they seemed to have a bit more emotion in them.

Overall, the different branches and endings you put in were very nicely done and played out. You gave meaning to each ending though some were more vague then others. The play style and graphics are all nicely done and the music fits in perfectly with the situation.

I do believe there could have been more to this game, like more branches/choices then 2 per screen, and the graphics of the girl could have been improved with a few more poses. There could have been seperate music for locations, though that isnt too important in a short game.

My thoughts - I feel that the girl is not real somehow, like people have stated below she could very well be a drug or addiction that he is "sugar coating" into something good for him. One line really showed this in the game "If people hear about me they will hate you" this could mean she Was a drug and if people found out they would look down on him.
The first ending was also very strange as the nurse said about hitting veins or arteries, which gave me the image of him injecting the drugs into his "little guy :D".

When the girl started to fade/blow out on the screen kind of made me more confused aswell. it reminded me of when a VI/AI runs out of power on a projection system and they seem to fade out. This gave me the idea that she could have been a holographic beign, like in many movies when the main character is very lonely in life and so makes a holo-person to fill the void.

The other thought was that she was a robot and this would also explain the part with people hating him and the veins/arteries being hurt.

I then read into it that the drugs could have been wearing off on the main character and his figment of imagination was slowly disappearing.

I do think that any of these theroies could be correct, as we arent given too much knowledge about the world they live in, it could be a robot and VI filled world in 2020 or something.

Overall I think this game is great, a "old-new" game which I havent seen in a while with great thought put into each ending and branch of choice.

9/10
5/5
