School Days (スクールデイズ, Sukūru Deizu?) is an animation adventure game developed by 0verflow and was first released on April 28, 2005. The original version, made for the PC, contains adult content of a sexual nature. An all-ages version was later released on January 17, 2008 for the PlayStation 2.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School_Days_%28visual_novel%29
Similar to traditional visual novels, gameplay in School Days follows a linear plot line where at predetermined times the player is given the choice to interact and choose several options that appear on the screen. The game however differs from traditional visual novels in that the story is presented in a format that resembles an anime, and is divided into indiviual epiodes and has opening and ending sequences as is anime.
The game is infamous for its violent bad endings, ranging from the killing of one of the other main characters to graphic depictions of suicide. A spinoff of the game, Summer Days, was released by 0verflow using the same system, but without such violent endings.
School Days has made several transitions into other media, including an twelve-episode anime created by TNK, and two OVAs by the same studio, a manga series, three novels, and a drama CD
So anyone see this series? If so, what did you think of it? The ending?
Would you play the original game it was based on?Do you really think Makoto really deserved getting killed at the end?
....I wonder how many people here have actually seen it.....O.o
