    Why should I care about theresia? What kind of emotional pay off do I get from this game? Is it worth the time investment?

    Theresia is a game for DS , published by Aksys Games. It's not your normal VN per se, but a psycho horror type point-and-click with Etrian Odyssey-like dungeon-crawl elements. The game begins with you waking up in a room from an underground facility with no memory about you and how you got there. The facility is set up with deadly traps anywhere. You explore this facility in a first-person 3D perspective and solve puzzles in a point-and-click type manner as you gain chunks of your memory back and uncover the truth of where you are and what happened. The game has an incredible creepy atmosphere thanks to the music and your awareness that you could die anytime by those traps. Some puzzles are hard and require a good amount of backtracking and trial and error. It can get boring and frustrating if you are stuck. Ultimately what let's you go on is the story because you know deep down that something big took place. The game got pretty bad ratings, though. But as any ratings are subjective, all games have audiences that enjoy them, regardless of the ratings.

    You should care about this game if you

    a) like Horror
    b) like Point-and-click adventures
    c) like mystery stories
    d) have decent headphones
    e) have nothing better to do

    The payoff for completing the game is, I guess, you have to work with what's presented to you at the end.

    Why did you choose this game and is there anything that sets it apart from other visual novels?
