Instant Brain Takes Place In The Showbiz Of The Future



Cave didn’t specify a platform for their upcoming adventure game, Instant Brain, when they announced it at their press event this past weekend, but we do know it’s coming to the Xbox 360 at the very least.


Instant Brain is an adventure game set in the showbiz of the near future. You play as lead character, Zenya Harataki, who has lost all memory of his life prior to six years ago. Hataraki is supposed to be a “legendary” media reporter, known for his phenomenal scoops.


Hataraki somehow gets involved in a conspiracy that is connected to his lost memories, and a dark incident from the past centred in the showbiz. To progress through the game, you use his instant camera — dubbed the “Exporger” – and take pictures that help you come closer to the truth.


Instant Brain is rated “A” by the CERO in Japan, which means they feel it’s suitable for all audiences. The game will release sometime this year.
