Baroque Syndrome

Moby ID: 28997
PlayStation Specs


A prequel to the post-apocalyptic RPG Baroque, Baroque Syndrome chronicles the events that precede the supernatural apocalypse of the original game, in which all of earth has been devastated by a massive heat wave.

You take the role of Kitsune Kanazawa, a Japanese student that becomes entangled in the investigation of a series of supernatural murders, which will slowly introduce key characters who will play a part in the upcoming apocalypse.

The game is played as an interactive novel, with 2D still pictures of settings and characters being the main graphic elements, and all actions being described via scrolling texts. At several intervals you will have to make a choice that branches the plot in different directions, but that's all the interaction you get to make.
