There are apparently some interesting differences between the two - the English translation of the manga was actually re-written to better attract No...

Re: Talking Simulator

Early videogames (as someone born in 1995, I'll be honest and say I struggle to date everything between Pong and Resident Evil so bear with me) were restricted by some fairly basic graphics and spatial restrictions.
