Chapter 2: I Should At Least Die A Knowing Death Eyes of the Chronicler was a strategy-based gal game with a fairly complicated storyline. There were 4 main capture targets, and just like most gal games, it would start off with a common route before diverging into the independent routes of the chosen capture target in the later stage of the game. The excessive number of events and frequent time skips in the game crammed players with an overload of information, creating a poor user experience. On top of that, the multitude of routes that led to bad ends, as well as the lack of satisfying eroticism within the game, left frustrated players dying to bang their heads against walls. Putting all of this aside though, there were still some strengths to the game. The illustrations of major characters were amazing, and the background and storyline of characters were also quite detailed. The main character of the game was a fellow named Paul Ackermann. A prince carrying the bloodline of the Austine Empire, he went missing in the streets when he was still a child, and it was only when he was sixteen that the royal intelligence network managed to find him. He was swiftly brought back to the royal palace to be inaugurated as a prince of the empire. As fantastic as being a prince of the empire might have sounded, the reality of it was less enviable due to the two older brothers that Paul had. Having grown up in the streets, his lack of knowledge and etiquette swiftly led to him being ostracized by the factions led by the other two princes. Eventually, Paul was eventually sent off to the Country of Academics Brolne to study. The common route of the game started off with the main character arriving at the Country of Academics Brolne. He would soon meet numerous gorgeous young ladies here, embarking on an adventurous journey of heart-throbbing romance. Once a female capture target was selected—this was also the point when the player finally went down a specific independent route—the main character, with his knowledge, fighting skills, and the aid of his girlfriend, would return back to his country to participate in the factional wars. In the end, he would overcome his two older brothers to take the crown for himself. To summarize, it was a ‘from academy to vying for supremacy in the royal court’ plotline. Of the four capture targets that the main character would meet, one of them was Alicia Ascart. Alicia Ascart was a spy that the Theocracy sent to Paul’s side, and her route was known for being hard to clear. Due to her beautiful appearance that appealed to the aesthetics of the players, she was often ranked amongst the top three in character popularity polls. She could be considered as the billboard of the game, which was also the reason why Roel remembered her clearly. And what he remembered even more clearly was the CG depicting how Alicia slit the neck of the villain Roel Ascart. Indeed, Roel Ascart was no other than the boss of the Middle School Arc in Eyes
