Original Thread: Namjon Yeobi - Let's Play Analogue: A Hate Story



Analogue: A Hate Story is a western visual novel created by Christine Love and released in early 2012. It's technically a sequel to the 2010 Digital: A Love Story, but the only connection is the setting - no characters persist between the two, and Analogue takes place hundreds of years in Digital's future, so no familiarity with the first game is necessary.

Mugunghwa Profiles
The Mugunghwa's archival AI. Cooperating with us to unravel the story of what happened on the ship.

The Mungunghwa's security AI. Blames *Hyun-ae for the deaths of the people on the ship.

Kim Jung-su
Father of Kim Yeong-seok. And old-fashioned man greatly concerned for the continued prosperity of the Kim family. Released the Pale Bride from stasis.

Kim Yeong-seok
Adopted son of Kim Jung-Su, after his father's death in 316. As the heir, he planned to become high magistrate and surpass his late father.
In Year 322, he succeeded in his ambition.

Kim Yeong-seok's wife
Name unknown. Had a very unfavorable first impression of the Pale Bride. Good at math - often helped her husband with matters of state.

Oh So-jin
Smith Sang-min's wife. Constantly struggled with getting her husband's attention and affections. Involved in some sort of huge scandal.
The scandal: She had an affair with her husband's concubine.

Ryu In-ho
Last Captain and Emperor of the Mugunghwa.

Ryu Jae-hwa
First wife of Captain Ryu. Was nervous at the prospect of her husband taking on a second wife.
Also Captain Ryu's sister.

Smith Kyung-sam
Only son of Dai-ho. Had no faith in the main Smith branch's future. Possibly a scoundrel.

Smith Sang-jung
Youngest son of Dai-hyun. Alcoholic, often cleaned up after the mistakes of his brothers. Eventually drank himself to death. *Mute was in love with him.

Smith Sang-hi
Older sister of Sang-min. Was widowed in 317.

Smith Sang-kyu
Middle son of Dai-hyun. A violent and abrasive man.

Smith Sang-min
Oldest son of Dai-hyun. A competent high magistrate, but with a tendency to let his affections wander. Was fired in Year 322 due to an excess of embarrassing scandals.

The Pale Bride
Second wife of Captain Ryu. Had been in cryo-stasis since an unknown time in the distant past, in hopes of finding a cure for an unknown disease. Very much an outsider to this culture.
Real name: Kim Hyun-ae.
