Mini Review: Leviathan the Last Day of the Decade

Foreword: Invited by Mark R., I didn’t get to this game until very recently, so I’m not sure if I can give a good review or not…

Nonetheless, I actually had some hope for this game, because most indie creators are pretty good at making games, in one way or another.
Turns out, this wasn’t the most thrilling game, both in its graphics or content. I’m very disappointed that besides some animations, this was your average kusoge (trashy game), which (sorry, Lostwood Games) is not worth the money.

Unless the game has some huge element that connects everything and performs a good resolution in a single last episode (or they can choose to extend it… either way, I don’t have good impressions on this game), this game will not interest me, and I’ll make sure it doesn’t fool anyone to fork over unnecessary cash just because it’s in English.

Summary: Oliver is the only son of a relatively wealthy family. Because of this, he is sent to school like other kids, and has a “relatively” normal life…

That is, until his mom started to act strange and he starts to be bullied just because he hangs out with the school bully victim, Kael.

One day, Kael invites Oliver to perform a demon summoning magic, and provides him with the necessary materials. Oliver successfully casts the magic, but the demon starts attacking him instead!!
Finally calming the demon with soothing words, Oliver will now have the demon serving him as a master. However, this awesomeness doesn’t last for long; the demon informs that Oliver’s mother is lying to him about something… and Oliver sticks his neck into the problem too deeply.

Although he’s released with a scold from his mother, he will definitely regret it–His mother is killed the very same night by an intruder.

Years pass by, and Oliver is now a healthy teenager. Although he cannot prove it, he knows who his murderer is; the very foster father that adopted him after his mother’s murder. However, he can’t do anything against one of the most powerful man in the area, and spends every day trying to find evidence that his guardian is a sham; he is evil at heart.
