There's a worthwhile secret bundled with Va-11 Hall-a KIDS

April 02, 2018 1 min read

I can't praise the original VA-11 HALL-A enough. Charming retro visuals, bopping tunes and lovable characters combined to create a terrific bar-tending experience. Despite the generally terrible circumstances of the cast, it ended up being one of the most chill and laid-back games I'd played in a long time.

VA-11 Hall-A KIDS, an April Fools joke by the same studio, is obviously not aiming to reach the same caliber as the original game. Gone is the cyberpunk dystopia, replaced with your run-of-the-mill Japanese high school. Gone is the alcohol, replaced with... an even raunchier than usual Dorothy. Huh.

And yet, it's definitely worth checking for fans of the original game. It's cute, it's funny and it's free. It reminded me of a lot of Newgrounds visual novels I read back in the day. There's more to this game, of course. A little secret bundled with the game files.
