Boy has my gaming gotten on a role lately ^_^. Here's yet another game coming out that I'll be reviewing. Gotta love that we are seeing more anime games come to the US. For years games like this were "Japan Only" since US marketers thought there was no market for them...and of course we know the opposite is true. Anyways, more on this game once I get a good play-thru. Here's the details:
Lux-Pain is set in historical Kisaragi City, a town plagued by mysteries from small mishaps to murders - with no logical explanation as to why these events occur. It seems “Silent”, a worm born through hate and sadness, has infected humans and forced them to commit atrocious crimes. The hero’s parents, Atsuki, are victims of such crimes. To avenge his parents, Atsuki goes through a dangerous operation to acquire Lux-Pain in his left arm, a power so strong that his left
eye turns golden when using it to seek and destroy Silent for good.
- Investigate your surroundings and gather hints by conversing with characters in the game
- Use your Psychic Powers to save potential victims from Silent Worms.
- Explore the massive world of Kisaragi City
- Use your stylus to:
-Conduct autopsies of Silent worms found throughout the game
-Find parasites before they reach the heart of the victim
-Examine various items you encounter along your journey such as buildings and objects
