Full review

MECHANICA: A Ballad of the Rabbit and Mercury is a must-play Yuri RPG that takes place in the futuristic cyberpunk city of "Guillotine" on Mercury. The game, developed by Japanese indie studio Loser/s and published by OTAKU Plan, offers an immersive experience with its unique blend of cyberpunk aesthetics, time-loop mechanics, mystery-solving gameplay, and captivating storyline.

In this 2D RPG adventure, you play as the protagonist accompanied by a mechanical maid with adorable rabbit ears. Together, you venture through the neon-lit streets of "Guillotine," where even stars' light cannot penetrate due to the shaded sky cover. Every three days, this world faces destruction.

To uncover the truth behind this impending disaster and save "Guillotine," you must interact with its diverse residents. The game steers away from traditional battle systems; instead, your key to progress lies in playing music to gather valuable information from these citizens. Unlocking new plot developments requires strategic use of music as you navigate through conversations and unravel mysteries.

The captivating storyline introduces players to intriguing characters such as linguists from other universes struggling with memory loss or emotions-deprived sinners seeking redemption. These charismatic individuals add depth and emotion to MECHANICA's narrative backdrop.

What sets MECHANICA apart is its attention to detail in crafting a cyberpunk Japan that fully immerses players within its world - filled with neon signs flickering against darkened skies - creating an authentic atmosphere like no other RPG before it.

All things considered, if you're looking for a game that deviates from your average RPG genre tropes while providing an engaging story set amidst futuristic backdrops fused seamlessly together with innovative gameplay mechanics — then MECHANICA: A Ballad of the Rabbit and Mercury comes highly recommended.
