No, by "have had the story spoiled" I meant "I've read what happens in the game on TvTropes and watched it on YouTube instead of playing it myself".
Seriously, don't do that.
Anyway, I actually played the game a couple weeks ago. It's been months since spoiling all that stuff to myself, so I managed to forget most of it.
It's a good game. I really liked the story. You can enjoy it even if you sort of know what to expect, because what happens in the game is of little relevance to the whole picture. The backstory provided in text files is more important.
I still have to get the final unlocks for reaching 100,000 points in normal mode and level 100 Metsu mode. They're something big that shines a new light on the backstory, if I remember correctly.
(I also have yet to alt-tab during the game one day, but I'm not sure what it does, and I think I'm too much of a pansy to find out.)
