I think the game pulls this off by not taking anything it presents too seriously. Sure, these girls sexually demean and humiliate each other non-stop throughout the game, but not only does it not seem to bother them much but it's often played for laughs. And I have to say, it works. The entry I played, Estival Versus, on PS4, may have some of the funniest dialog I've heard in a game in ages. I'd recommend this series to any gamer here and I'm looking forward to checking out the other entries when I can.

Anyhow the character's obscurity is a bit of shame, as the game (a retro-styled point and click adventure) was a lot of fun if you like that type of thing. I have a love/hate relationship with adventure games. On one hand I enjoy how story-driven they all tend to be, but on the other I despise the nonsensical, moon-logic puzzles that plague the genre. But Kathy Rain was largely free of such ridiculousness, and as long as I tried to just think like a detective I didn't get stuck. (Okay maybe once or twice, just who the FUCK would think to try putting an audio cassette into a computer scanner!?)
