Platinum 302: Atelier Shallie
A lot of fun and it did deliver on cute girls doing cute things. However, it lacked the subtle melancholy of Ayesha, which remains the best "Dusk" Atelier game by far. Like Escha & Logy I think two protagonists hurt the story. Neither heroines' motivations or relationships with the other characters or her milieu ever felt fully developed. Lotte had more interesting side content while Strea had a more focused quest (those much of that was, sadly, off-screen)
For those interested in the female prospective, my wife's analysis was: 'The one with the dress is a stuck-up bitch, but I like the stupid one with the big knockers.'
