    I hope everyone gets to play Don’t Take It Personally, Babe. For the three or four hours you get out of it, it’s really terrific.

    @2 Yeah. It is well worth playing, even for those initially put off by the animé stylings.

    There’s no excuse, really: it’s a small, free download that’ll run on pretty much any PC or Mac.

    Alec’s write-up got me quite interested, but having played/read the game/visual novel last night I can’t say I was very impressed.

    You can see a lot time and thought was put into it, and as a subtle critique of the social networking phenomenon, it does its job.

    BUT I couldn’t shake off the feeling I was watching (and occasionally interacting with) a high school themed anime. Not because of the artwork either; more like how the narrative always boiled down to fixing some relationship or the other…

    Oh well, maybe I’m just too old or cynical :)

    That’s fair. That was something I explained to someone last night when I emailed him about the game. But for what it is – and bear in mind I am 20, so this would be up my street anyway – it’s terrific.
