One Night Hot Springs Review
Posted: 5 months ago.
With cartoon visuals, and dialogue bubbles, you guide Haru through various moments of decision: should you be cautious about anxiety-inducing scenarios, or more open and truthful. For example, when you friend calls, do you agree to go on the trip provided there are private reserved baths, or do you say you don't want to go. The choices have various consequences that shape Haru's day.
The game is a chance to share a small experience about what it can be like to be transgender in Japan. Haru is legally male and hasn’t had gender-affirming surgery, but lives as a woman. Unlike a book or a film, you are part of the story, making choices and seeing the implications. This means that it's a good game to play through a few times to see the different outcomes.
One Night, Hot Springs is a well-told and moving story. Along the way you learn about Haru and how she feels about her life.
