OPlay is a Go at GoComi

The long-hinted at online game, OPlay, has finally been released today over at the Go!Comi website. Those who sign up (it uses the same log-in as the site’sĀ forum and account system), can play the prolouge chapter for free, with a $7.99 fee for the first episode.

I think it’s a neat concept for sure and it’s fun playing that kind of choose-your-own-adventure-dating-sim-esque game with such beautiful graphics (Hunter and Julie did wonderful work on this) and with the ease of online play (no downloads required). But is it $7.99 an episode good? While I thought the prolouge was neat, the episodes are going to need to be a lot longer than that to come close to being worth the cost. Can this online-play manga be worth nearly the price of a regular manga book? I’m too broke to say for sure right now but if anyone else gives it a shot past the prolouge, I’d love to hear about it!

  1. Even if it was the best game on the planet, i doubt it would be worth $7.99 a chapter. Especially since they don't say how many chapters there are. Imagine if it goes 10+

    It would be marginally better if there was a downloadable version of the game as well, but even then i don't think $7.99 is justifiable.

    I'd say around the $3.99-4.99 mark at the most. $3 like the legal downloadable anime episodes would be better IMO
