This is an ambitious japan only game that had an open world but was also an adventure/survival horror, very unique.

This game is criminally unknown even in Japan. I first learned about it years ago and wish I had paid the high price to buy a copy then; now it sells for 10 times as much, and that’s if you can even find a copy. It’s the only game missing from my physical collection that I know I want.

I’ve tried a couple of times to get into it over the years, but the language barrier was always too high for me and broke immersion. Hopefully I and others can now give this game the attention that I think it deserves.

Edit: A link to the patch: www.romhacking.net/translations/7187/

There was already a Spanish patch a few years ago, as well.

Edit 2: And now it’s been flagged as “noncompliant”. I’m not sure what that means, but it’s not available from that site for the moment.

Strange, I’m sure I put the link while doing the post, thanks anyway. I tried playing the Spanish one but turns out Portuguese and it aren’t close enough to finish an open world survival horror.

The original romhacking.net page is gone. Good to know it’s still out there, though.
