Amplitude: A Visual Novel Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on Amplitude: A Visual Novel by Ceylon Entertainment.
Amplitude is an indie visual novel that follows a rather unique storyline. You have the option of playing as either Adam or Eve but their souls inhabit the body of another person. You have a choice between either Jon or Katy. There are 4 possible combinations and the story changes with who you choose to inhabit. Jon and Katy’s story intertwine a little bit but each of their story’s is unique. The game features 5 unique endings and 12 different character route endings.
The story takes place in the year 2121 with 70% of all humans being mutated with special abilities. Jon and Katy are exceptions to this rule. They had no powers until meeting the people that inhabit their bodies. The story is often very humorous in nature but becomes quite gory and bloody in the middle and end.
The visual novel is also quite feature packed as well. There’s a quest system, stat building, a messaging feature, relationship building, and a crafting system. You can take on a wide variety of different quests which will often grant you rewards on completion. By performing various actions, like running at the park, you’ll increase various stats. You’ll sometimes receive text messages from characters and some of them you’ll be able to reply to. As you spend time with a character, your trustworthiness and their affection toward your character will increase (Or decrease) based on your interactions. The quest feature often uses the crafting system. Characters will often require you to craft them a specific item, like poison for example.
Amplitude was quite the entertaining visual novel overall. The beginning and through the middle was quite hilarious and had me laughing quite a few times. Then the game took a turn into the crazy and got really brutal. The novel also had a lot to offer feature wise as well. I will admit that the voice acting could have been better but it’s not widespread. I also found the music to be really catchy as well. If you’re looking for an entertaining visual novel to read/play, then Amplitude is worth checking out.
Thanks for taking the time to read this review folks. I’ll be back with another one soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
