Red Spider: Vengeance is a Hong Kong Noir style Visual Novel.
It includes 6 story routes with each of the characters(approximately 105,000 words in total).
A prequel to this story, Red Spider2: Exiled has been released.
Yvet grew up as an orphan on the Mainland. She was taken in by a crime syndicate when she was young and trained as an assassin.
She killed many people, but she had her reasons for breaking out of that group. She escaped and married Francis, the leader of the Red Flower Society, an underworld mob that operated in Kowloon, Hong Kong.
One day, Francis was shot in a nightclub, and a doctor said that it was highly unlikely he would regain consciousness.
Yvet takes over his responsibilities and tries to find the person who was behind the shooting, with her bodyguards and a private detective she knew.

I thought the game was very unique and enjoyed the simple illustration style (which causes you to use your imagination).
It was my first time experiencing a ‘novel game’ but I thought the concept was very interesting and enjoyed what I did play!
I liked Francis' route the most.
I think I enjoyed Luk and the Ghost’s characters the most. I had always been quite fond of the Ghost mostly just because I really liked his English name, but I also enjoyed the development of his character in his track, and how the game allowed you to learn a bit more about why he was so stubbornly loyal to Yeung and suspicious of Yvet. I enjoyed Luk’s rough and tough character and was then disappointed (because I translated this one first) to find that he wasn’t the only guy Yvet got together with during the game!
I found the parallels between Shawn and Johnny interesting, and also enjoyed the Dog Head track and seeing a different side to him (as a parent) than what is seen in the other tracks. I also enjoyed Luk and Shawn’s brotherly interaction - they were fun to translate!
I also enjoyed the scene in the hideout where they are all cooking together and talking, and how people from different sides and who didn’t relate well to each other begin to connect and end up on the same team.
