A cute little story, nice soundtrack too :). Well, it's got better heart than Voices from the Sea. That game was a piece of sh**.
The Sad Story of Emmeline Burns is about an Angsty Story of Toma, a girl who doesn't like her name and is troubled with thoughts of death and has remained shy her whole life. That is, until, she meets a strange girl named Emily in a graveyard who tells her the story of the deceased Emmeline Burns... and then the sad story kicks in!
The Sad Story of Emmeline Burns is a sad story about a girl named Emmeline Burns who is a lesbian in the 1800's (I think) and then she dies. So sad.
I won't spoil anything major, but both stories aren't that particularly well-written or presented. It's all about finding confidence in yourself and coming of age and blah-dee-blah-dee-blah, but the progressive "choose who you want to love, no matter if they're your gender or not" edge did make me a little more keen to support something like this.... If there were some actual g****** conflict in it.
See, the idea of the story is interesting. A lesbian couple in the 1800's! How do they get away with it? Do their parents find out? Does the whole town find out and punish them? No. They just go off and make out. There's nothing at stake with anything that happens in the story. Even the cause of Emmeline's death seems very sudden and forced (Seriously, those motivations are very weak. No spoilers. Just saying.), and Toma's frame narrative is equally as uninteresting. She doesn't like her name. She goes to a grave. She hears a ghost tell a story. And then she feels better about herself. She's not a very interesting character and, again, nothing is at stake for her because there is no conflict.
There is a little something towards the end (after the credits of all times) when things look up for Toma but it's too short and too late for me to care anymore. It's after the f***ing credits! Why should I care?
Presentation is also pretty low, but that's what I've come to expect from these interactive novels. Still images poorly animate and low-quality sound effects play over some stock music the developer found for free. But they have the protagonist as one of the still images... and they have both characters (including the protagonist) looking towards YOU the player, which makes no sense. I'm supposed to be Toma, right? She's my insert into this story, isn't she? So why is she looking at me in these conversations? It's a very unusual choice and I don't think it helps the story in any way, shape, or form.
I think Emmeline Burns has got some heart deep down inside. There are certainly qualities in it that I like... but it's bogged down by some lousy writing and some low presentation quality. That and the story is pretty linear. There's no replay value because the game takes about an hour to beat and you make no choices throughout the whole story. So why should I go back and play again? Because I loved the "deep" and "compelling" characters? Thanks but no thanks. I'm giving The Sad Story of Emmeline Burns a 4\/10. It's got some good ideas, but.... there's a lot of sh** piled on top of those few good ideas.. This is a beautifully compelling game with a heartwrenchingly emotional soundtrack.
This game is totally worth the time it takes to play it and more.. The story isn't paced very well. Had the dev expanded on the concept after the jam, his could have been a VN worth paying for.
Nonetheless, it's an easy 100%, quite short, and free, so judge for yourself.. A story of a romance between two girls, sad in some parts but heartwarming in others, im sure there are many more similar IRL .
Its pretty much straigh foward, so, there are no choices or multiple endings, but still, interesting story if you like this kind of adventure.
Ive been looking for this kind of adventures in this past weeks, since its good sometimes to take break from action most games offer, and im always down for a good story, and this definatly provide one, I recommend this to everyone who enjoys a good story.
