This is a "period" game, set in pre WWII Japan. The music is Japanese, nice and tranquil to listen to. The artwork is beautiful, with different types including some Japanese watercolor cutscenes. There's not a lot of running back and forth in this game, and not a lot of locations. The HOs were pretty hard. There's several types of them, the standard list with some interaction; silhouettes which were quite hard as the items are Japanese themed and the silhouette might be of a little piece of artwork on a teapot, very hard to spot. There was also one where you replace objects. You could set the hint to refill fairly fast, I did and I used it a lot, lol. I figured out right away I wasn't going to get the achievement for no hints! The puzzles were mostly pretty easy with a few harder ones thrown in. The storyline was good, a teenage girl was sent to go work in a factory but takes off for the big city in search of her geisha birthmother instead. There was also a choice you could make at the end.
This game didn't have a bonus chapter that I could find, that's why I didn't rate it 5 starts. It had origami to collect and also achievements, wallpaper, replayable HOs and puzzles, cutscenes, and maybe music, can't remember for sure. If you're going to buy it, I would recommend the SE version.
