"Love might not last forever. Justice does."

An interactive romance novel

Everlove caught our attention for a few reasons. Firstly, because it's been presented as a romance game. Although it's true that's not the first time we hear that, this seems the most "professional" of them. In addition, we are talking about a "romance game", not a game about bratty highschoolers. It's a story about passion, self-reliance and will, but also investigation, wittiness and, utterly, vengeance, as a Danielle Steel novel so to speak.

Artwork is beautifully drawn, in a Western style (no manga this time, youngsters!), and choices (because it's an evolved version of choice your adventure in the end) are naturally presented into the story, not only in critical moments as other games would do. Along your journey (literally speaking in more than a sense) you'll earn prowess and wits, though perhaps not in the way you'd expect: kindness is a virtue you could also boost. In your way you will have to solve puzzles and jigsaws.

We don't like the "game for women" label at all, because this game if a rare example on how to make an interesting story where player interacts and enjoys, recommended for everyone. If we had to highlight a flaw, it'd be that there are some outdated tropes here and there, cliches that may be fine for a certain target audience but can discourage others. In the end, great work of Silicon Sisters, whom we ask to make more games like this and be bolder next time. And translate them to other languages as well, because it can be pretty hard for non-native English speakers to fully enjoy the rich texts. Anyway, go ahead, enjoy the first free chapter and decide whether to upgrade to the paid version or not.

Developer's original description available here
Everlove is a narrative game of Romance and Mystery where each choice you make builds your character and brings you closer to one of your four possible romantic liaisons. In solving the complex mystery of who killed your father, will you find love?

    Overall really good game. Great graphics and fun storyline. I just got really irritated that the whole thing is about the beast and it ends suddenly without any explanation of why future self is having these dreams or what happens to past self.

    I was actually pretty surprised. This is such an amazing visual novel. I'd adore a sequel or a follow up or something. Amazingly beautiful and kept me playing constantly till completion. One of the best things to ever grace my phone.

    I was enjoying the game. It has many options to go about the storyline but I chose the Lord Blaxton path and every time I can't go passed the screen that says arriving for the funeral. Hopefully if I try another path I can get further
