Sotsugyou Shashin * Miki

~ SOTSUGYOU SHASHIN * MIKI ~
Coconuts Japan / GX-Media
Super CD-ROM
1994

I bought this game only because my scholarly cousin Zigfriedonsky told me it's "historical."

"The Duo's answer to Roommate Asami!" he exclaimed.

I don't know what that means, but there are two digital comics on the SS*M disc, each a love story that can be played through in fifteen minutes or so.



One focuses on high school students getting ready for a big bash; the other, on some bums in a backwater village where the peasants are raucous.



Sotsugyou Shashin, with its endearing tale of young nerd love, is actually quite likable. It's very corny and mushy and sweet, and its music is nice. I played through it a number of times to view all its different scenes.



Miki, on the other hand, is rather dull; its music, irritating at times; and it has a "Game Over spot" to dread near its conclusion.
