Gameplay[edit]

Kagetsu Tohya consists of Twilight Glass Moon, Fairy Tale Princess, a main scenario with many branches, Ten Nights of Dream several short stories that are unlocked one after another after certain related events in the main story have been read and Summer Festival a short scenario that is unlocked after the completing the main story. The gameplay is much more dynamic than in Tsukihime. Rather than being linear, the game's narrative is focused on a single looping day which the player repeats multiple times after completing one "day" in Shiki's dream, your data is automatically saved. The player is given a large number of choices to make, which cause the story to branch out, and reaching certain branches unlocks more choices.
