Lyantei - Review

Lyantei is a casual visual novel from Sweet Slush Games. The main story is about you going to help you're aunt run a tavern, which has you doing different daily task. The story is a bit weird in places and clearly loses some effect in the translation. I wasn't impressed by the story as much as the artwork. The story just seems to try too hard and failed to get the effect it wanted with me.  With that said you can tell a lot of love went into the game and several of the 6 main characters are interesting enough to keep you going.
Each day you can complete 3 task, while other guest will chip in and help complete task as well. Your basically trying to make the Tavern the best place possible. Reputation, cleanliness, efficiency, food, potions and more are all things you can work on during the day to help the tavern succeed. While doing these task other events can spring up and give you more story and paths to follow. Most of the daily choices I ended up hitting the automate option, and that can get old pretty fast, but I did enjoy the story events that would pop up from time to time and I felt like the choices I made in those events changed my story quite a bit. Overall if your into graphic novel games then you might enjoy this one. If your on the border I'd wait for a sale and give it a try.
