Serena Nelson writes: "There are three different endings, with several smaller branching paths, but I only managed to get one so far. And Brilliant Shadows is pretty lengthy, at least for a visual novel. After several hours of reading through the text I didn't want it to end. This is something that only the most gripping stories have managed to invoke in me. Which obviously means that I'd love to see a sequel in the future should there be plans for one."
