Chemically Bonded from Ratalaika Games and ds-sans is a new Rated T for Teen visual novel on PlayStation. You’ll be taking on the role of a Japanese student who’s getting a chance at a new life. After writing your name on the board, you’ll be introduced as a new transfer student to the class. You’ll have a chance to make new connections and leave a new first impression on a new group of people, which sounds like a fun way to reinvent yourself.

You’ll soon meet Kiyoko, who is part of the science class. You were looking for a mop and bucket to finish some clean-up duties when fate sends you to the lab and a new connection forms. Next up will be Naomi, a fiery redhead who seems to have a temper… or is she just trying to hide a soft interior? If you’re a fan of visual novels, you’ll quickly realize she’s of the Tsundere type. You’ll meet some other characters along the way, but Kiyoko and Naomi are your two main potential love interests for Chemically Bonded.

 

If you’re new to visual novels, they’re games that do their name justice since you’ll be experiencing a story of varying lengths expressed with a ton of words and some visuals to go along with them. Chemically Bonded is a fully voice-acted visual novel, which is not usually the case for games in the genre since voice acting is an expensive element to have in a video game. You’ll be experiencing the story one act at a time as you make choices along the way that will affect which ending you can get.

By visiting the Extras section, press the L2 button to go into the Library section. From there, you’ll be able to replay all of the different scenes from the game’s story acts if you want to so that you can pick up from specific moments. Once you get all endings, you can also press the L1 button to check out two bonus scenes, which are needed for the Platinum trophy – more on that below. There’s also a Gallery section where you can check out the CG for some of the special moments in the game, as well as an Encyclopedia section with some extra information on some items as well as on characters.

 

This one has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to add to your collection. And since this is a Cross-Buy title, if you own a PlayStation 5 console, you can download both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost, and each one will have its own Platinum trophy for you to work on. Each list is not very long, with only 11 Gold trophies to worry about. Since some trophies are tied to the different endings you can get, you might want to check out this Chemically Bonded Trophy Guide.
