Tap-Repeatedly/Four Fat Chicks
Tong Nou, according to the introduction of this game, is a Far Eastern island. Per the legend, once a year Tong Nou devours the soul of humans. Rin, a young man, decides to travel to Tong Nou to recover his missing soul. He is given a temporary soul for 49 days to use while he gets his own soul back. Is Eastern Mind the strangest game I have ever played? Absolutely. Was I mesmerized by its strangeness? You betcha.
A game in which you search for your lost soul on an island that takes the shape of a giant green head, and in which you must die and be reincarnated 9 times in order to succeed, is different to say the least. From the mind of Osama Sato, a Japanese artist and composer of some note, Eastern Mind offers something truly different, but in the end comes up short.
