Saya no Uta really is something to behold. There are so few games that are as horrifying yet also as beautiful as this one, and I’ve meant to cover a track from this game for quite some time. The most well known tracks from this game seem to be the discomforting atmospheric tracks like “schizophrenia,” but I don’t think they best represent the game in question.
CW: Incest, pedophilia.
I seem to have been having terrible luck with titles from Jast USA. Thus far, the Jast USA titles I have played are Starless: Nymphomaniac’s Paradise, Saya no Uta, Lightning Warrior Raidy III, Do You Like Horny Bunnies!?, and Amayakase – Spoiling My Silver-Haired Girlfriend. Of these five, the only one I thought was good was Saya no Uta, although I am planning on giving Raidy another go at some point which is why I do not plan on re-posting my old GameFAQs review of it any time soon.
I’ve recently come to the realization that if my end goal is views and popularity, then I could stick to reviewing eroge. My eroge reviews almost always seem to be disproportionately popular compared to my other work. One could dismiss that as people just being horny perverts, but If that were the case then Read more
How many of us have looked at another person and thought “this person is seriously fucked up?” One would assume that us all being human would mean we have a single common thread that unites us; that all of us can relate to and feel comfortable living among each other. In an ideal world this would be the case, but in reality we are often divided and thus alone.
We judge our comfort with other people based on how similar they are to ourselves and we distrust those who have fundamental differences in how we view the world. We all have different backgrounds, different experiences, and different belief sets that determine just how we see the universe, the people, and the experiences around us. Saya no Uta is a game about these differences; a game about how we are all different, and how we are not so different.
Just to give people a heads up, Saya no Uta is a dark game with some disturbing themes and subject matter. While Saya no Uta is an eroge with some dark content, I would not place it in the same category of sex focused eroge as Euphoria or Starless. There are some graphic and disturbing scenes in Saya no Uta, but I would classify it more as a psychological horror story than a nukige. Despite this, I would advise similar caution before playing this game as I would with Euphoria as it is NOT for the faint of heart.
CW: Violence, Gore, Rape, Pedophilia, Cannibalism, Suicide, Ableism. Also SPOILERS! Read more
Trigger Warning: Starless… no more is needed…okay fine, rape, incest, bestiality, scat, genital mutilation, murder, starvation, confinement, kidnapping, sexual slavery, and all around unpleasant sexual imagery. The game itself is far to grotesque and sicking to recommend to ANYONE! Extreme caution is advised if one wants to play this game anyway!
Starless Nymphomaniac’s Paradise is one of, if not the most disturbing games ever made. This is not the usual levels of messed up that hentai is known for. If you still think something like Rapelay is a legitimately disturbing game, stay far away from this game. If one is not the right type of audience for this game, it can cause deeply scarring psychological problems that will stick with you for a long time. It has been a year since I played this game and I still cannot get the images from it out of my head.
Also what I would like to disclose is that this is not the first time I reviewed this game. I have written a review of it a year ago shortly after I finished the game. The game had caused some very adverse effects on my mental state, which has resulted in a hastily written review that did not explain everything about the game that was needed to make my point, and I worded some things rather questionably. This time, I will try to view the game from a more observational standpoint at how well it achieves what it sets out to do.
