▍Mokoto Karaki’s message
“This is an adventure game with a story that changes according to decisions made by the player. I think it is a new endeavor to produce this all in live-action. The thoroughness of the script is also very good, complete with unique features that can only be found in this game. I wanted to perform acting that couldn’t be expressed well in CG so that players could understand why live-action film was chosen for this project. Please look forward to my acting and this game.”
