Wednesday on Windows presents a free visual novel like (Don't) Open Your Eyes and BNHA/MHA Valentines Dating Sim that lets you decide how to respond in various situations. The story features similar incidents from the developer’s life, showing transitional themes and how they impact a person.
The game has an extensive tale that you’ll need to wade your way through, showing the protagonist’s life as she deals with daily struggles. The story will keep you hooked as you wait to see what happens next, and you may feel the themes relatable to some aspects of your own life.
When you play through the plot of Wednesday, you may feel somehow connected to the character. It takes you through the life of the main character, searching for the meaning of relationships. It also takes a close look into her thoughts and mind, which may make you study your own darkest fears.
The developer of Wednesday opted to use the soundtrack of FRENZIED DESTRUCTION. It contains harsh noises and foul language, which gives you an indication of the game’s mood. If you’re opposed to listening to such audio while playing an idle visual novel, it may not be the best choice for you.
While the game and soundtrack are free, you can send a donation to the developer to support the work. If you do, you’ll receive the official art book as a thank you that shows all the designs. It’s an excellent incentive for those who complete the visual novel.
If you’ve ever had heartbreak or dealt with a massive life change, the transition themes in Wednesday will feel familiar. As you make your choices in the game, you’ll need to deal with similar emotions. Your experience may count in your favour as you select each option in the game’s twist and turns.
