Gameplay and graphics
Like all visual novels, the gameplay for Archangel: Nemesis is pretty simple. The dialogue is in the first-person point of view, and you get to decide what action to take. The text appears over the visuals, and although the character design and background seem like low-quality 3D assets, it surprisingly works well with the text.
