Yarudora (やるドラ) games
Group DescriptionYarudora (やるドラ) games are games by Sony Interactive Entertainment produced for PlayStation and PlayStation 2, some of which are also ported to PSP, that play as an interactive drama (hence the name, "yaru dora = do drama"). Animation for the games is done by Production I.G. company.
The games play like a fully animated visual novel, and feel like an interactive anime movie. This makes them short in length, but the player constantly enters choices during animation pauses which branch the plot and affect the ending. As such, the games have many different paths and endings and very high replayability level, but overall single play time can be fairly short.
Overall there are 4 such games made for PSX and 2 for PS2 console. All four PSX games were later ported to PSP.
