Confess My Love is an Indie game on Steam. I am pretty sure it is a Free To Play game. In this game, you play as Willie, a boy who is ready to confess his love to his long time crush, Liza. However, poor Willie, gets rejected time and time again. It is your job as a player to figure out how to confess properly to Liza. This is not an easy task as no matter what you try to do, you will always fail. You must unlock the secrets behind the recurring events. As I don’t want to ruin the twists and turns of the game, I really can’t any other details from the game. It is truly as simple as figuring out what is happening in the strange classroom.
This is a relatively quick game as long as you know what you are doing. Each chance to confess takes about 5 minutes, and things change after each confession opportunity. I got all twenty endings in a little under two hours. Now, I did look up where to find a certain object, so a few of the endings probably would have taken me longer if I had taken the time to figure it out on my own. Now, there is a catch, there are 15 normal endings that you must get before you can unlock some darker endings, and finally, you can not get the true ending until you have unlocked all nineteen other endings.
With the game itself being so short there aren’t really a lot of different pros and cons to talk about. The way I see it, the things that I like about the game are also the things I dislike. For example, the controls of the game. I like the fact that you use the arrow keys and the space bar as your controls. However, on the other hand, it is very much sometimes difficult to use the controls. When you are trying to examine an object, or talk to a person, you have to be standing in an exact spot. It can sometimes be difficult to find that “sweet” spot in the controls. I absolutely love the art style of this game though. The characters are absolutely adorable and the game is in a chibi style so it makes me love it all the more.
In terms of the story, it is great considering the short game play. It has a direction and sticks to it. The game itself is rather cliche, but still the way the story is written is still great. You come to feel for the characters. I like the fact that once you have completed the game, considering the ending, you can’t play the game again. It makes everything feel more real and a lot more permanent. I do know a lot of people that really don’t like that about this game, but to me it works with the concept that the creators were going for. The only other thing that I feel I need to talk about is the lack of direction. You are essentially just thrown in the classroom and you just do it. After a few failed confessions, you will be given a few extra hints for interactions each time. I found this incredibly frustrating, as I knew what needed done. I just couldn’t seem to get what I needed. That is why I looked up the guide in the first place.
Overall, for what the game is, it is pretty good. If you are looking for a simple game to just waste a few hours with, then this one might be for you. Between the cutesy chibi game style and the story, it is worth checking out even if you simply get bored after a few attempts. The worst case, you will be out a few minutes of your time. Well, I guess that is all I have for today. With Confess My Love being such a short game, I feel like there isn’t anything else to talk about. So, I guess I’ll see you in the next one!
