Double Splasher!


Review: Root Double (Switch Retail) Root-d10

Published by Sekai Games, developed by Regista Games and Yeti Games, and public relations by PR Hound, Double Root is a sci-fi visual novel with all the strengths and pitfalls of the genre, however it shines brilliantly in its unique storytelling! Is this enough to award it with an amazing level of recommendation? We think so and here's why:

Review: Root Double (Switch Retail) Rootdo10

The story in one possible route of the game is set in a severely damaged nuclear power facility that you must try to escape at all costs, however many suspicious characters and mysteries will stand in your way of the goal. Some of these characters will naturally help, but others have less than helpful ambitions that could spell trouble for your protagonist and allies. The game has a unique system of travel and certain unique features that really flesh-out this rather enjoyable visual novel.

The other route is a slice of life story that shows the daily lives of the protagonist and his friends and is quite lighthearted and bubbly compared to the other story route.

The length of the game of course depends greatly on the player, but a single playthrough should take less than 20 hours for most players. The controls are oddly a bit cumbersome at first, but it's pretty easy to adjust to rather quickly.

Review: Root Double (Switch Retail) Rootdo11

The audiovisual presentation of Root Double is absolutely gorgeous with gorgeous character designs, stylish UI, and great special effects you'd be hard-pressed to find anything unenjoyable about the graphics, and the soundtrack is just as amazing and fits the game like a glove!

Review: Root Double (Switch Retail) Rootdo12

Bottom-Line:With amazing storytelling, great characters with plenty of growth over the course of the story, and an incredible audiovisual presentation, Root Double is a top-notch sci-fi visual novel that is well worth purchasing if you enjoy the genre and as such, we give the game a nearly perfect level of recommendation!


Score: ★★★★★★★★★¾ 9.75/10

@MechaFreiza You mean like this?


I'm sure you could message them about the best route(s) to take, or at least ask the gondolier in person. Wink

@Towafan7 @MechaFreiza I tried to make a funny, but I just realised that, in some accents, "route" doesn't sound like "root", which messes up the whole "canal route in Venice" joke... Review: Root Double (Switch Retail) 1625187496
#HashtagEpicPunFail lol Bored/What the...?

Wait... "route" makes an "ooh" sound in some accents, and an "ow" sound in others... and root canal therapy is painful (without anaesthetic), and so is tripping and falling out of a gondola (ego bruising really can hurt)! Razz
#HashtagStealthPunSuccess lol lol!
