When I heard of the title, I had no idea what to expect. Especially with that “Re” in front, I had a feeling it was a remake or something like that. I was right. Researching more about it, I found out it was a survival horror. Seeing as I loved horror, I picked it up to see its story.
I’m quite surprised however, the interface of the game is as if it didn’t have much scripting done, compared to all the other horror RPG games I had played. I don’t mind this though, as I care mostly about the story of the game. I like how in the game, the player can sprint really fast. I love the feeling of the fresh air breeze.
To start off, you play as a 3rd grader boy who goes by the name “Shunsuke”. He goes off to visit his grandparents. The moment he returned, the area had a weird atmosphere and nobody seemed to be there. Immediately, he goes to check his house. He didn’t see anyone there, and after a few seconds, some body came hanging down from the ceiling. This is assumed to be his mother. Frightened, he goes out and sees a zombie “Mami” (his high-school friend). Confused, he just kept receiving blows from her. His friend “Ryou” came to his rescue and brought him to the secret hideout.
(This is a picture of the hideout before the incident. I didn’t take a screenshot of the hideout after it.) Ryou and the other survivors explain the situation and they all decide to go out once more to have a phone call to people they know. Whether this was a smart idea, is beyond their knowledge.
Notes: I’m currently at the Elevator event while writing this. I hope to finish soon though.
