Play dating sims online for adults only
This particular aspect of the game won't be to of the strategy or RPG components, too -- but for me, it was one of the most interesting and defining aspects of the whole experience.The narrative revolves around the protagonist Yuuto being pulled into a mysterious parallel world called Phantasmagoria.The game itself is a visual novel, and a dating sim, and a brutally challenging strategy game, and an RPG.With all its diverse mechanics, however, story is the priority, and so this sometimes means that a mission in the strategy game component might be interrupted by a half-hour visual novel sequence as your forces arrive at a specific location.
For those concerned about censorship, don't worry; the "all-ages" version we have today doesn't feel compromised in any form, and due to its substantial rewrites and expansions over the original, is in fact regarded by some players as the definitive version.

Once the communication issue is resolved, we start learning things about the Spirits.
