Plot

We jump into Another by…hearing a story about a girl. 26 years ago, there as a third-year classroom in a middle school who had a student named Misaki. Misaki was a honors student, she was good at sports and was very popular. All of sudden, she died and her classmates acted as if she was still alive and well. The class continued up this act until graduation. Very creepy  start, right?  Then, in the spring of 1998, a boy named Kouichi Sakakibara transfers to a school called Yomiyama North Middle School.

Xolga and Mr. Toko Season 1 Review

As most of you may not know, there’s a user on deviantART called Pacthesis. She made multiple dating sims targeted for females. But, the only reason I’m bringing that up is because two people appear in them.A teddy bear named Xolga and a yellow floating thing named Mr. Toko. They didn’t really matter up until 2011 when Amy (Pacthesis’ real name) decided to make a series for them. Continue reading

Underrated Game: Indigo Prophecy

Today, I’m going to talk about a very interesting game which is called Indigo Prophecy. This game is a mystery type of game but for me, it falls in the category of mindfudge.

This game is of course for the PS2 which explains the outdated
graphics. This game is also developed by he same people who made Heavy Rain for the PS3, Quantic Dream. This is their first game and did some really creative things other people didn’t do which is paranormal events, this game is based on paranormal stuff and this is the time where nobody was using it for a cheap gimmick.

The story, well, without giving much away you are Lucas Kane, an average man in New York during the cold winter. Well, Lucas actually kills someone in the bathroom in a diner and he doesn’t know why. In the opening scene you see him not acting normal and again, I won’t give that reason away but everyone thinks you are a murderer. You can also play as other characters which are usually Carla and Tyler, cops who are invesgating the case of Lucas. You can even play as Markus Kane, Lucas’ brother. There are quicktime events and when you’re having a conversation with someone you must pick your dialog quick before the timer runs out or the game will pick it for you. As you progress along, you find what even happened to Lucas as the cops are hot on your heel. There is even an aspect of the degress getting colder which doesn’t play a big part until later on but there are some discussions about it in some parts.

There are multiple ways of getting a game over because you picked the wrong dialog choice in a dangrous and serious event or you didn’t do what you were suppose to do. Your game can even end if you don’ keep your characters sane enough. In order to keep them stable you can play with stuff in the area around you or other things.

I may see why some people have turned this game down is because of the paranormal aspect in the game. I can respect that with the media pushing paranormal movies or TV shows in our face, but, Quantic Dream even has an aspect of you saying “What the fudge…” or even have a mindfudge moment. I can say, I had some of those experinces and even with the playthroughs I saw people had that same experince.

What else can I saw more? If you’re into a fun time and not turned off by paranormal stuff then get this game if you can find it cheap for the PS2 like I did. If not, buy it on Steam because I do believe it is on there. There is a version for the Xbox 360 but I heard it wasn’t very good. That’s all I have to say guys! Have a fun time with Indigo Prophecy! 🙂
