I am playing Hate Plus again, with the Level 4 Revive Materia mod installed. After what I went through the first time, this is scary and difficult emotional labour.
Hate Plus is the game that really made me care about *Mute as a character. She looked more attractive, and was much more conflicted and sympathetic.
I'm trying to figure out how to structure everything leading up to the Hate Plus adapt so as to capture the feelings I had playing it, so that I can finally confront and avert the emotional crisis I had.
I need to change some of the Analogue adapt to facilitate this. Its ending particularly rings hollow to me. It was faithful to the game, but ... it didn't feel right, on so many levels.
I've pulled the chapter 16 that I already posted. I'll update when there is more.
