Decent. I like how short and easy to read this was, and the ease of the quick-time events prevented gameplay from slowing to a crawl. That said this isn't much of a visual novel. There are no real choices, branches, and the quick-time events don't even have time limits so they aren't how actual QTEs are supposed to work.

The characters also fall kind of flat. You have a generic protagonist, then a teacher and two classmates with no characterization whatsoever. It's never explained why the "loser" protagonist is approached by a classmate in the first place, and the it makes no sense as to why the aliens even care about the students if they're looking for a "substance." Maybe the substance is one of the characters? I don't really know or care, as that would be more of an excuse than a believable plot element.

The music and dialogue suggest that this is supposed to be funny, but while the expressions and casual demeanor of the characters make this style of VN possible, the lack of situational humor make this less dramatic than a drama and less comedic than comedy, leaving the submission stranded somewhere in the middle.

All I can say is meh. Art style is meh, story is meh, quick time events are meh. About the most average thing I've seen. Not bad, but it's kind of sucked dry from a lot of originality.

I liked it a lot. More of an interactive "movie" then a game, but that is what I liked most. Very great work!!
