Square Enix’s Mysterious New Adventure Game Book


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?
