Imaginary Range, Square Enix’s Comic Cross Game, Is On iTunes Now And It’s Free

irSquare Enix has a creative project for iOS devices. Imaginary Range is a digital comic book with mini-games built in. After you flip through the story one time, a menu opens up which allows users to read the comic sans games, just play the three games or glance at the art in gallery mode.

 

Imaginary Range, similar to the Akira DVD has popup commentary. Tap a butterfly for more insight on the story and setting. Speaking of the story here’s a sample of it

 

The nation of France remains in a state of complete chaos after a sudden attack by a giant creature known only as Omega. Cid, a technician and psychotherapy specialist, travels into France and works alongside his friend Ciela to put a stop to the menace. What is Omega after? Why are Cid and Ciela talking about the end of the world as they fight? At the end of a battle that transcends dreams and reality, the world will come closer and closer to the truth…

 

Souki Tsukishima, scenario writer on the visual novel Root Double: Before Crime * After Days, wrote the story for Imaginary Range. Toshiyuki Itahana, who worked on the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles series, created this game’s art and Motomu Toriyama, director of Final Fantasy XIII, oversaw the project.

 

Imaginary Range is available on the iTunes store today and it’s a free download. An Android version is slated for release later this month.

    I played through it last night and it was really interesting. It was a little short, but it was free and they’re definitely releasing more, so I’m not too upset. I loved the variety of different games, that all had to do with what was happening at the time in the story too. I hope in future episodes they make the music a bit more dynamic and make more use of sound effects. Overall, Imaginary Range was a really solid show for their first Game x Comic, and it’s a genre that has a LOT of potential to be an amazing and fresh window into a world, I’m excited for the future of the series, especially with Cid and Ciela ending up in a fantasy world ;)
