Marcus Estrada writes: "Of course, things are not as cheery as they first look. The longer you stay, the more this cast of characters seems intent on having you stay there. The turn from typical dating sim fun to something more sinister is very interesting and not nearly as common as you might expect. But I Love You still offers many of the expected visual novel conventions, of course. There will be a host of endings (some of which result in relationships with the different characters) although that seems like the exact opposite of what players should strive for."
