Our First Review: A Desperate Mother’s Love

Hey folks, we got our first review on A Desperate Mother’s Love, our submission for the IGMC 2015 contest; written by Jtrev23 which you can find on their website.


A few highlights I’ll rip from it…

A few things made this game stand out however, from the other visual novels I’ve played […]

We don’t exactly fit the mold of a normal visual novel, but that is accurate – we planned for the game to be a story-based interactive fiction.  There is an adventure section where you actually control the detective character (Roy) and move around, examining things, but the rest is mostly arranged in VN style.

This is apparent not only through the stunningly perfect voice acting […]

All that credit goes to our voice cast: Cary Reese, Anna Chloe Moorey, Sarah Dunham, Laura Schafer, and Greg Arnold.

“[…]I would have preferred if the multiple endings had a greater variation in the endings.”

This is a criticism we received for In Over Their Heads, as well, the piece we submitted to the WAG Challenge.  That the ending was too binary and the player’s choice’s didn’t affect it as much as .  Definitely something we’ll have to work on in future titles.  Apparently I went to the Bioware school of writing endings.

In the end Jtrev23 left off with some final words:

“The best visual novel game in RPG Maker I’ve played so far and definitely deserves more votes. Check it out! It’s a good read and great if you love mystery novels.”

So thank you to Jtrev23 for our first review on ADML.
