A Year of One Hit Wonders - October - Fragile Dreams
Being October, people often like to play some scary, or at least atmospheric, games. With that in mind, we will be taking a look at Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon on Wii this month. Published in North America by XSeed, the game was developed as a collaborative effort between several companies, most notably tri-Crescendo and Namco Bandai. I'm not going to get too far into the story of the game, as figuring that out is a significant part of the experience. It is mostly a third person adventure game with first person views available for puzzle solving. Combat is real time and weapons have a durability stat. Seto, the protagonist, is a boy in a mostly uninhabited world. He is searching for other survivors in the world, but there are ghosts which will attack him. Item management is also a significant part of the game, as active inventory space is limited to just a few items and you can only access your extended inventory at a bonfire.
Reviews have been mixed, but it is generally due to the actual gameplay falling short of the atmosphere and story presented. Enjoy!
