After the events in London, Ben decides to return to his home... but then gets a call from his friends, Simon Booth and Alice Wilkins. Simon says that there have been a series of mysterious murders in Osaka, Japan... but they soon discover that there is much more going on than they had first suspected. Working together with local police and his friends, Ben discovers the involvement of living dead, and tries to find links between different events.
Land of the Rising Dead is a classic point-and-click adventure with actions to move around, examine, talk, and pick up and use items. These can be selected from the top of the screen, or you can cycle through them with the right mouse button. Ben has an inventory and important clues are stored in your notebook. The game has been divided in 5 acts, representing the 5 days of the investigation. In some parts of the game, it is possible to die, and at a certain point, there are multiple paths with different puzzles to complete the investigation. Your progress is measured by points, shown in the top right corner.
