You Generation Reseña(s)
Gameplay wasn't hectic for item hunting but when you play with item tossing in Live section and Participate the live more (Required JP Skill) that how you play the games.
This will reward tremendously if faithfully communicate the Girl in Japanese and deep study on JP map powered by Google Map.
Short story, Seto Sakura, Anya and Sora Cosmic Tanaka arrived at deserted land, saw the abandoned factory and then they found an mysterious robot, the sky become darker, the army of Eyes comings after they discovered the robots until Scientist "Grey" arrived the scene gave the cannon part attached to robots, eliminate the first eyes and all three and our bot successfully escaped, entering the Hash World and the endless discovery begin.
The open-world segment is where you get an souvenir item to beloved host to get on ranking as well personal letter from them, the goal is to hunt down those wacky eyes plaques around the map, once you approach to any of Hashtag, item will randomly appear display the rarity star, time limits and floating crystal serve as the targets. once defeated the eyes, It will progress the item possession by keep beating the same item you collecting, after hit 100% the item will be available to use for live mode. there are bonuses for quick reflexes or doubles hit as well.
Some Items can attack you like "Purple Tag" are Boss Item, this will fire an laser at you receiving Stun effects for brief seconds, to avoid it, shot at the eye first then crystal will show again and carefully aims, fast and true before time runs out and start over.
There are Map quest and Event that ties the prefecture you visiting that rewarded with gem or limited exclusive item, for City area were you can buy stuff to upgrade your bot, Play some mini games (only one game playable) and look also some QoL aspects. Item enhancement do have an durability gauges such as Fishing rod or Motorcycle, once it depleted, it cannot be reused. Stamina can freely rechargeable both Energy supplements and Gem. (wait, do bot can eat those things?)
Live section is what games is about, It an free stage for any host were everyone can join the celetia live, Item tossing, Playing Mini-games and enjoy Live concert is unlike anything what mobile games can offer. surprisingly, it was in real-time also archivable in YouTube or in-game replay. (within week) ince live finished it will collect the points for ranking and next live will restarted. You don't need participate all live event just choose with one want to interact with.
There are two way to experience the live, AR and VR will create the immersion even further, futhermore if you have Oculus Quest Headset, you can download an app from App Lab, put the code in and enjoy.
Art Department wises, It is flawlessly great, UI design and Font choices are colorful, Subtitles also heavily inspired by Japanese TV shows. Graphics is near-Switch like yet pretty demanding than Alice Gear Aegis, and expect hiccup or FPS tank during map streaming or higher fidelity visual.
Additionally, for fanservices wise, they changes their Underwear each live will have an different color, Sakura-chan didn't know you can use AR, pause the show, and zoom in through her skirt. which motivated me to play even more. hope Colopl leaves it be.
Last but not least, With guest Vtuber like Kokoro from Nijisanji and world-reowned first successful Vtuber Kizuna Ai arrived to Celetia live along side new characters Noran and other two comings, this creates Vtuber an free co-playing spaces and served as special live that you shouldn't be missed.
In conclusion, YouGene is technically not an Game, It described as "Live Playing Game" an genre that you played, you gatered and you gives in real times. It such novelty for JP games to innovative or try something weirdly fun, remind me of Death Stranding. The director goal is to create semi-metaverse area that give an taste of what Anime Metaverse in nutshell look like through phone or VR live. I got give credit to Colopl STAR Studios for cemented the app before "Metaverse" buzz begins to emerge, However it will demend you with deep JP knowledge if ran into Map quest and sending mail to Host in other not to embarrass yourself in Live mode with below N5 Japanese. If you want true JP learning experience, Vtuber fan or Look for Sakura Pantsu, This is your paradise not RPG grind fest.
And damn This game is one of my favs for now
a live game
ตัวเกมไม่มีอะไรมา แค่ยิงบอสเกมของตกแต่งบ้าน และที่สำคัญคือ Live ตัวเกมไม่มีอะไรเลยแค่นั้น ฉันผิดหวังมาก และไม่คิดที่จะกลับมาเล่นอีก
el gamepñay es algo patata ya que es algo similar a pokemon go, pero con joystick y en vez de pokemons son objetos cotidianos
a medida que avanzas en ese juego acumularas cristales que sirven para los directos
en esos directos aparecen la gran mayoria de personajes que te presentan a lo V-Tuber japones
los directos van feten y si, el horario de los eventos va por tu pais asi que no hay problema
si sabes japones o simplemente quieres ver monas chinas, te recomiendo el juego, eso si, no esperes fanservice aqui, solo gorilas y weas de idols japoneses
After YouGene received an major update, focusing "Interactive Live" aspect over Hybrid Live x Games. This changes led to various reason such as Discontinuation of Google Map for Game, Lower Profits, Mediocre Open-ended mode and Canonical Ending.
YouGene now cutting off Loid section for good and pushing on new collab event and special live for better support. All Ales are unlocked plus all content were shifted to have fun and get a A-Message.
Overall, This version of YouGene is considered an diet version and more focused games than original.
