In a room of the "Bayside Tower Land" apartment complex, a woman is found murdered under mysterious circumstances. This sets off a series of seemingly random events throwing together multiple protagonists including The Silver Case's Tokio Morishima. With all viewpoints assembled, a truly shocking pattern emerges...

    Goichi Suda and Grasshopper studios are back with a weird and original adventure. The atmosphere is concrete in The 25th Ward, in an enjoyable way. The problem is that this is a more a visual novel that a videogame, and we are more spectators than players. However, the originality of the plot and the style, makes the game worth it for those non-mainstream players.

    Insane. In the most literal sense of the word.
    But not in a generic way, not in a pretentious way, but real, palpable.
    it's a bottomless pit of madness.

    Not everyone will appreciate it. But playing with an open mind after The Silver Case and Flower, Sun and Rain, the experience with this game will become amazing.

    Kill the Past is a franchise that deserves attention.

    Amazing introduction for the KTP World and Suda's mind. If you want a nice storytelling and know what's Suda51 is, this is the starting point.

    Honestly, this is what happens when Suda51 takes The Silver Case's setting and goes full political fiction.

    It's an over-the-top, but very intelligent take on a very strict society full of rules, trying to create an utopia. Even though the interaction may be VERY tiring sometimes, the writing, art and soundtrack is worth it. And it's a visual novel: the interaction won't be very present.

    It's one of my favorite VNs. Anyone interested in Suda's Kill The Past series, political fiction and such should take a look!
