Thanks for pointing it out. Since being published by Alienworks in mid, Highway Blossoms earned its highway blossoms remastered as one of the highest-rated yuri VNs on VNDB and could easily be considered as one of the most successful Western visual novels to date. The game from the very beginning stood out through its unusual setting, plot structure and high production qualities, seemingly appealing even to the more demanding or JP-focused yuri fans. Spoiler: it does. Kind of The climate of American deserts and road tale story formula immediately set Highway Blossoms apart from most EVNs, even with its somewhat generic artstyle.
Highway Blossoms is a kinetic novel, following the story of Amber, a years old, tomboyish girl travelling alone in an old RV through Southern-US highways. While on her way to a music festival, she accidentally stumbles upon Marina — a cute, naive girl whose car has broken down in the middle of a desert.
First just expecting to help the stranded woman to get her car running again, through a bizarre chain of events Amber winds up travelling together with her and even ing her on a treasure hunt for a long-lost stash of gold. During this adventure, she forms a bond with Marina, that will ultimately help her deal with the grief and loneliness connected to the passing on her grandfather, the closest person for most of her life and the only family she ever had.
The characters both the main couple and the relatively small, but memorable supporting castdetails of their backstories, the locales of American deserts and folkish soundtrack all contribute to building a very unique climate. This is further supported by the structure of the story, with the couple constantly travelling between both famous landmarks and various obscure locations characteristic of the areas to which their quest for gold brings them.
While the treasure hunt and the scenery of American highways are a breath of fresh air, the core content of Highway Blossoms is still a romance story — one that is excellently paced and satisfying thanks to its characters, but ultimately quite predictable and cliched.
The feelings between the girls bloom rather slowly and take into the uncertainty of their positions. Even after the treasure hunt is over, they are little more than strangers to each other, Amber still dealing with her fresh highway blossoms remastered and doubts about Marina's sexual orientation, while Marina herself, despite their straightforwardness, is also struggling with what for her is a completely new and unexpected situation.
A minor gripe of mine of that the script was apparently not thoroughly screened before including the additional voiced lines, often explaining things that are clearly for everyone to hear, like emotions in the VAs voices.
While being an adult game, Highway Blossoms is practically devoid of anime-style, forced fanservice and used its erotic segments to enhance the story. Its one erotic scene, while still relatively explicit, is not overly porny and have actual plot relevance, leading to the final conflict the girls have to work their way through before earning a happy ending.
Of course, the lack of creepy panty shots does not mean the game offers nothing to look at — its artstyle is quite gorgeous and the quality of both sprites and CGs rather excellent. It also includes some rather unique visual setups, like the repeated sequences of the main couple interacting on the front seats of the RV during their travels, which have their own set of poses and expressions. So, what are my final impressions of Highway Blossoms?
It definitely is an excellent game with a unique feel to it, but also a game catering to a very specific group — fans of yuri romance. Labels: reviewvisual novelyuri.
