The setting itself is already a very interesting aspect of Herald. An alternative history story about the colonial times, handling issues of race and class.
Herald is a casual game mixing point & click play style with a visual novel storytelling, emphasizing on the player’s choices.
The story isn’t casual though. It’s very compelling, and I played the two chapters in one sitting. The first chapter is very short but the second is already a decent length. Together it took me roughly 4 hours to complete.
The character art is stunning, and while the 3D surroundings don’t quite reach the same standard, they are still very much pleasant to the eyes.
Time Played: 2-5 hours
Difficulty: Very Easy
