As an ex-victim, I'd like to just give a warning: this game is extremely dark, and this is coming from an avid guro fan.... I'd go as far as to say only a bona fide masochist would enjoy the whole of it. It was a captivating game, but not in the good sense. I had to finish it, to chase the flimsy hope that there might be salvation in the end.

Now if some of you are still not persuaded, perhaps already been hooked in by the earlier chapters, then my only suggestion is to not read any reviews. That's all. Prepare some hot cocoa and enjoy the numerous touching moments that it does provide. Let's hope you'll find it more palatable than I did.
What the heck, Sharin no Kuni isn't anywhere near that dark. It's not an utsuge for a start.

Heck, I would report the opposite; I felt Sharin no Kuni was an incredibly UPLIFTING piece. I was left with a better impression of the world as a whole from playing it. The overall message was quite positive, as it generally is with Looseboy games.

Yes, the theme of the game is generally positive and it has an uplifting, triumphant tone. Bittersweet at times, yes, but I have to wonder what kind of drugs you are on to call it dark(or maybe you just haven't actually played a dark VN before)

I wonder if what Kenn is talking about is the same kind of feeling as Sono Yokogao, the only other experience I have with Akabei Soft, gave me.
The Mio route was, to me, really depressing and somewhat painful to read but still captivating and hard to stop reading. Can definitely say that I'm a bit more wary towards starting to read another of their games after that.

Though after what other people said, these two games might not be similar, as I can't imagine anyone finding the Mio route in Sono Yokogao "uplifting".

Hahah, I'm beginning to wonder if we played the same game.

This is the one where the girl gets shot point blank and dies about 10min into the game right?

Spoiler


Only if you've finished the game:

You should probably avoid ever playing a real dark eroge.

Anyway, it would be better for you not to advertise a positive game as dark. You're just going to get dark game fans playing it and then make them utterly disappointed.

I can see my post was perhaps too long for you folks to read its entirety. Ah well, I did my best. :P
