[PlayStation 4] Blind Men Review
Blind Men is a visual novel from Man-Eater Games and Ratalaika Games. Read below to read more about this release in our Blind Men review!
As the nephew of a retired super villain, there’s nothing Keegan wants more than to become one himself — and what better way than to join the League of Evil? All he needs to do is commit a crime to complete his application.
As the game begins, Keegan tells a story about his cliché desire to become a supervillain. To achieve this, his uncle – an active villain – offers him the chance to attend an event and prove his worth to the villains league. The whole game takes place on said evening in which the main character tries to become a villain. There are six slightly different scenarios paths that you can take, depending on your choices through the game.
I haven’t mentioned it yet, but apart from being a visual novel, this game also includes a boy who loves boys dating sim, in which you can be romantic towards the two secondary characters – this is what’s known as a Yaoi visual novel. However, there isn’t anything graphic in the game, other than one character showing the other its affection by way of a warm embrace and a passionate kiss.
As for the presentation, Blind Men is as basic as it can get. The visual backgrounds are there for whole sequences that last roughly five minutes each, and there isn’t a huge variety of them. A few sequences are voiced, and the only available language is Spanish, but all text is in English – as well as Spanish if you want to. Speaking of text, and this being a visual novel, you can expect to read a lot in this game. One neat feature is the possibility to save at any moment, which is definitively helpful for your trophy hunting efforts.
Speaking of the trophies subject, if you’re looking at this Ratalaika game for a new Platinum, then you should be happy to read that this game offers a roughly 10 minutes Platinum trophy, as long as you dive into using this handy guide:
I managed to clear my first run in roughly 30 to 45 minutes, without following a guide, which felt like a good length for this type of game.
Blind Men is a visual novel that offers two Platinum trophies thanks to being Cross-Buy PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita title. Apart from the trophies, the story didn’t seem fulfilling, and being of such a small scale (a single event), I think this game will please only hardcore visual novel fans or trophy hunters.
