Vera Blanc: Full Moon Reviewed

Gamertell has posted a new review of Winter Wolves latest title, Vera Blanc: Full Moon. In the visual novel mystery players take the role of Vera Blanc, a young woman with the power to read minds, who must deal with a werewolf in a mysterious German town. Gamertell gave Vera a combined score of "Two thumbs up, 91/100, A-, * * * * out of 5"

From the review:

The key to finding the truth in Vera Blanc: Full Moon is paying attention. You need to read closely to know whatís going on in Wolfach, and be ready to read minds, talk to important people and solve mini-games in order to find the best ending. Veraís actions determine what youíll learn about the case, so you have to be careful.

Mind reading is a guessing mini-game. You will usually have only a few opportunities to read someoneís mind, and then youíll have to decide before you do if itís worth it. You could end up reading the mind of someone with no pertinent information, which would mean youíd miss out learning crucial information that could lead to an important revelation that could bring you to the true ending. You click letters to try and see if they are in that personís thoughts. If you miss a certain number of times, you donít know exactly what was being said and could miss out on important information.

I also found the art style in Vera Blanc: Full Moon quite appealing. Most visual novels tend to favor Japanese manga and anime art styles, so Vera Blanc: Full Moon really stands out. It fits the situation as well, since it makes you feel like youíre reading an old noir or detective comic. This may give some visual novel fans pause before picking it up, but I think it may actually help Vera Blanc: Full Moon become more accepted by general adventure fans, since it stands out.
