Another awesome VN from Kidalang! I liked it so much, I went through the first playthrough (5 hours) in one sitting; couldn't stop reading. I do admit that I liked An Octave Higher a bit more, but this prequel was definitely a close second. While some have suggested otherwise, I do think the VN is more enjoyable if you've read An Octave HIgher first. An Octave Higher explains the magical system and gives an overall introduction to the world in these stories. Besides, it's more interesting to see Janis's backstory while knowing who she is in An Octave Higher.
Like in An Octave Higher, this story was very thought-provoking and causes the reader to consider things about life. It particularly raises questions about the treatment of those with mental illnesses in society. As someone who suffers from depression/anxiety, I did relate quite a bit to some of the rhetoric used in the story.
Ideas on the time lapse: (kinda spoiler-ish)
Based on how young Janis is in this game and how old she looks in An Octave Higher, I suspected the time between the two is maybe about 10 years or so, but thinking about it, I've decided that can't be right. Joff (another character in An Octave Higher) hasn't married or had his son in this story, and since his son was a teenager in An Octave Higher, assuming he got married (maybe to Ena) and his wife immediately got pregnant, then maybe the time between the stories is about 15 years. Perhaps a bit more. They might even state Joff's son's age at some point in An Octave Higher, but I can't recall since I played it quite a while ago.
The joke ending was, once again, quite amusing.
I HIGHLY recommend this game (as well as An Octave Higher) to those who enjoy thought-provoking VNs.
Tht has a true ends even t was nn all I like this game :3
by Vidservent on Steam
This VN is about the protagonist that lives in a madhouse because she can't use magic and a group of men trying to uncover some shady activity that the owners of the madhouse might be involved in.
It has a true ending which lines up the protagonist's life before An Octave Higher happens and 3 alternative endings that could have happened depending on your choices in the story.
You can play this even if you haven't played An Octave Higher and only miss a couple of technical details about the world but not the story.
It was nice to see more of Joff's and Poe's character here to give perspective on their characters in the main game.
All in all I like this game :3

by Malmoth on Steam
Overall, One Small Fire At A Time is a pretty good prequel to An Octave Higher. While it lacks the length and depth of its predecessor, the artwork is definitely better.
My only problem with this visual novel is that you can reach the true ending quite easily. I did it on my first playthrough and I like to struggle a bit, get a few alternate ones (all preferably) beforehand.
Having read An Octave Higher is a plus but it's not essential. I would still recommend playing AOH first. It's a fascinating story that will make make you want to know more about Overture and its people. That's when One Small Fire At A Time comes in, as a nice cherry on the cake.
A nt has around 3-5 hours Playts everywhere. Because of that, she was brous 5 Stars.( The Style: 3,5/5 Stars( usus5( t......odd? )I would give it around 3,5/5 Stars and recommend it.
by Shocky on Steam
A nice little VN with a good amount of Comedy and Drama at the End of it.
It has around 3-5 hours Playtime and shows an interesting Story of a Girl, which can't use Magic in a World, where Magic
is everywhere. Because of that, she was brought into a Madhouse where the Story starts.
PS: This Game is the Prequel of ,, An Octave Higher''
Charaktere: 4/5 Stars.
( The MC has a nice personality and the SC's aren't that bad. They have a story which will be explained to some decrease.)
Art/Style: 3,5/5 Stars
( It has a nice look, cute at some times but it can intensify the Drama and the Fights.
Musik: 3/5 Stars
( The Musik isn't special but nothing bad. It match the Story but it sometimes stops abruptly when you move forward to the next scene)
( It has a nice Story which is well told. I would have given 5 Stars if the ending wasn't so......how should I say it......odd?
I would give it around 3,5/5 Stars and recommend it.
Where should really lned s very uss game is very good, even if bit short (Better than if it was too long, then it would be quite boring), and for fair price.
by rzul on Steam
Where should I start....
I really like this game, just as I liked previous part, which is "An Octave Higher". The story is set some time before "Octave", more or less 20-30 years. We see origins of some secondary characters, most notably Janis and Joff Godwin.
Anyway, you have the story explained in the summary of the game, above reviews section, and I don't want you to read the same ♥♥♥♥ all over again. I'll just tell what you can expect. You can expect well balanced story, with humour, action, sad moments, plot twists, etc. There are also many long and smart conversations about various things (mostly psychology), so if you don't like it, then I don't recommend it to you.
Art. Art is very impotant factor in Visual Novels. Often in low-budget games, such as this one, artstyle is very cheesy. Thankfully this isn't a case here, character sprites and backgrounds are detailed and just well done. There are also many CGs for more complex scenes, which is very good.
Music. I'm especially sensitive on this point, and to my satisfaction, this game has very good soundtrack, I couldn't hear any generic overused stock music (well, there were few classical pieces).
Overall, this game is very good, even if bit short (Better than if it was too long, then it would be quite boring), and for fair price.

Well, that was unexpectedly Great. This VN has pretty unique art style, and the characters aren't that easy to read by the looks, as they may appear to be. The choice of the music fits the scenes almost perfectly, and the music itself never got me tired. The story is decent, a bit shorter that I expected. With some sharp turns, and a lot of things that are not what they were appeared to be. It's a madhouse, after all. I like that.
This story wasn't bad at all, I even cried at some parts, so while the title itself may not appeal to most, it still is a nice enough story. :) Definitely loved the emotion it brought, which is rare as most other t

The story is actually quite nice. But sometimes the angst seems really funny as my 14 year old emo self can sometimes relate to it. Some problems that this game has is that there is a bug that prevents you from being able to click on the screen in order for you to read through the text. You have to restart the game in order to play it again, which makes it quite troublesome as you need to remember to save every so often. But nevertheless, the game is actually quite nice!
Another d really enjoyed the cot's a short one and has sont rnto thke?
by GreyHounD on Steam
Another disturbing but great VN from Kidalang.
I really enjoyed the comedy and dramatic events which came surprisingly often.
It's a short one and has some alternative endings which are all interessting.
Just try to imagine you live in a world full of magic.
Everything's done with magic. Factories are run by workers using magic to produce stuff and so on.
Now try to imagine how that society will look like.
Does it ring a bell? That leaves a bitter sweet aftertaste on our own societies even without any magic around.
And you were born into this magical world without being able to use magic.
How would that feel like?
Th ps no nudity, H, or any other adult content. So, if you're looking for that. look elsewhere.
by timjake78 on Steam
This is a good read with multiple endings and a lot to think about. The discussions of how society decides what is lunacy and madness get a bit long winded, but can cause you to really think about it.
I picked it up on-sale, but I think it would be worth full price. Even using fast-forward while doing alt endings, I still got over 4 hours of reading time from this. I think it's worth that.
Also, there is no nudity, H, or any other adult content. So, if you're looking for that. look elsewhere.
