Description

Seto is a young boy that is extremely special; he may be the last human being alive on the planet. In a post-apocalyptic world that’s covered in fog and lost its light, he searches abandoned cities tirelessly with a flashlight in hopes of finding other humans, any human. As Seto searches through these eerily calm and beautiful ruins of a civilization lost, he comes across a mysterious girl named Ren, who quickly scurries away from him despite possibly being the only other living human in the world. As he struggles to be reunited with Ren and search for other survivors, he must fight off the ghosts and demons that haunt this forsaken land while also piecing together the mystery of what brought about the disappearance of all mankind. Fragile: Farewell Ruins of the Moon is the latest creation from tri-Crescendo, the acclaimed development team behind Eternal Sonata. It is an emotional tale about a boy alone in a post-apocalyptic world, and the high production values behind the gorgeous graphics and moody soundtrack really draw the player into the story of possibly being the only human being left on a deserted world. The game focuses on exploration and adventure, with light RPG elements.

Features

  • Players enjoy a mix of exploration-adventure gameplay, with light RPG elements such as inventory management, character leveling and varied attacks, added into the mix.
  • The game?s focus is on human drama as a boy wanders a lonely post-apocalyptic world in search of answers and companionship.

Story
Seto is a young boy that is extremely special; he may even be the last human being alive on the planet. In a post-apocalyptic world that’s covered in fog and has lost its light, he searches abandoned cities tirelessly with a flashlight in hopes of finding other humans, any human. As Seto searches through these eerily calm and beautiful ruins of a civilization lost, he comes across a mysterious girl named Ren, who quickly scurries away from him despite possibly being the only other living human in the world. As he struggles to be reunited with Ren and search for other survivors, he must fight off the ghosts and demons that haunt this forsaken land while also piecing together the mystery of what brought about the disappearance of all mankind.

Gameplay
Although Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon contains light RPG gameplay elements, its gameplay is based primarily in single player exploration and action. Players assume the role of Seto, who is almost entirely alone in a fog-shrouded post-apocalyptic world, but who is determined to find any and all other people who may also still live, especially the girl Ren. To do this players use the Wii Remote/Nunchuk controller configuration. The Nunchuk controls Seto, while the Wii Remote acts as a flashlight, illuminating the dark corners of the gameworld. As the game proceeds this light will also reveal other items which Seto will need to move through the game and survive the ghosts and other creatures he encounters. These include items such as weapons to protect himself and a microphone and metal detector to search the gameworld and better understand it.

Along with these utilitarian items the player will also come across a variety of other objects, such as letters, which will reveal bits of the lives of the people who used to inhabit the gameworld, and possibly add clues to what caused the state the world is now in. The RPG light elements players can expect are an inventory system that must be managed, a leveling system allowing for better weapons, simple and more elaborate attacks using the Wii Remote's “A” button, purchasable upgrades and a few optional side quests.
