Square Enix’s Mysterious New Adventure Game Book

By Ishaan . April 15, 2011 . 2:05am

Square Enix have a new iTunes and Android game in development, but they haven’t even said what it’s called yet. All we have for now is the image above, mentioning some of the game’s staff members.


Souki Tsukishima is the scenario writer for Root Double: Before Crime * After Days, a futuristic adventure game being published by Yeti. Meanwhile, Motomu Toriyama should be more familiar, having directed the recent numbered Final Fantasy games. Finally, you know Shinji Hashimoto as the producer of several Square Enix games, as well as the person managing their Twitter account.


The code for the game’s website has the game’s genre listed as “adventure game book” — you know, those “choose your own adventure” books where you make decisions that alter the story. Since Toriyama’s role is listed as “comic,” perhaps this is some sort of graphic novel?

  • The woman looks really nice, as does the little crazy thing on her. xd
    I like adventure’s, though, I do not have either an Apple hardware nor an Android~

    • PrinceHeir

      same2 though i do have a ipod touch, i think that’s compatible?

      • Yes, it is. It says iPod touch right next to iPhone.
        Which makes me happy because I have no iPhone ( > A >);;

        • PrinceHeir

          ohh cool ^^

  • Zero_Destiny

    Nice I’ll take this as a sign that VN’s can still push through to the west in some way or form. ^_^

  • puchinri

    Iphone gets a lot of nice stuff. I can’t be bothered to buy one, but I am envious.

    And while I like the designs, that girl’s outfit feels fantstic and yet… slightly horrendous… Maybe it’s just the sitting / pose though.

    And is that an evil Moogle? S/He’s aborable, whatever s/he is.

  • Draparde

    I do enjoy some choices in my books!

  • The guy looks out of place if you ask me…D:

  • Hopefully we actually get this in the US

    • It already has an English site, which is what we used for our post. The Japanese site uses Japanese text. Square have also mentioned it on their downloadable games page on FB, so it’s definitely coming. :)

        That, and if they wanted to make a Japan-only game, they would have probably used i-mode. An iOS/Android game has a 99.99% probability of coming stateside.

  • itunes and android…? T.T wtff… hope it gets released as psp mini or w/e later….

  • Finally! Some Android love! ^_^

  • Christian Wright

    that female character is pretty cute. good design!

  • raymk

    I love the female look its a very good design :). that’s about all I like though seing as I don’t have an iphone

  • Will it include the option where if I get to the wrong page that spells game over, I can turn back to where I was previously and choose a new option?

  • Not sure what to think about this.
    I’m still sort of mad about the whole Sigma Harmonics thing to even look at another ‘adventure game book’ from Square Enix.

    …but we’ll see :)

    Hmmm, interesting. Now I’m sort of glad I have a Touch. I also need to try out Chaos Rings. :3
