Eve burst error is set in modern-day Japan. The player controls two characters: a young, seemingly careless private investigator Kojiroh, and the special agent Marina. Kojiroh has been struggling to make a living as a lone PI, but now luck seems to smile to him: the director of the Eldian International School, Mr. Ko, asks him to find a missing painting, supposedly of great value. At the same time, Marina is hired by the ambassador of the fictional Middle East republic Eldia to protect his daughter Mayako from terrorists. Switching between Kojiroh and Marina, the player gradually finds out the connection between the two cases and plunges deeper into a mystery that involves political struggle, scientific discoveries, and horrifying murders.

The game is a traditional Japanese adventure: the player interacts with the world by choosing appropriate commands from the menu (which is different for every location). There are no puzzles to solve, and the player makes progress in the game by examining the environments and talking to the characters. At certain points, it is necessary to switch between the two characters and make them cooperate.

The original version was a full-fledged hentai game with explicit sex scenes. Subsequent releases removed those, but still contained a lot of sexual innuendo in the dialogues and images of half-naked girls.

EVE burst error was a huge hit (it was in fact one of the few titles that kept the Saturn going on its final days, at least in Japan) and it has sprung several sequels.


This game and its sequels have names based on central character names from the anime series Megazone 23. E.V.E. was a sentient computer program represented by a beautiful young girl with light green hair who served to help the protagonist characters survive a government conspiracy involving a threat to their world. ADAM as titled in the final sequel of this game series was a computer program seen in Megazone 23 pt II that stood for Absolute Destruction of Available Mass. A spaceborne weapon of mass destruction that channeled an energy force from the moon to destroy the enemy threatening Megazone station. I
