Chuusotsu! 1st Graduation: Time After Time is a visual novel with a mouthful of a name. For the unfamiliar, a “chuusotsu” is a term used to refer to people who have graduated middle school.
In the case of this game’s world, the protagonists have graduated middle school and failed a test to proceed onto high school or work. Instead, they are outcasts of society who are now taking part in an assignment. If they can philosophize appropriately to determine an answer to the assignment, then they’ll be able to move on with life.
This kinetic visual novel is available for $17.99 on Steam during launch week.
