Assuming you even know the right area to check, it’ll still likely take you a few minutes to find them – completely discounting the fact that for some of them you may just not know which area they might be in, and find yourself at a complete loss

As cool as this interactivity is – and make no mistake, I definitely think it’s very cool for the genre – I’m of two minds about how these features impact the pacing of the story as a whole. Let me explain: in most VNs, character-specific routes would be their own thing, and either one of them would be “canon”, or none of them are, and they’re used as alternative routes to the “true” ending. While the method of unlocking these chapters bears quite a bit of resemblance to the methods that you would take to unlock the True Ending in, say, Steins;Gate – each and every character-specific “route” is canon, as they take place during different parts of the timeline.
