■ History

A story where the present and the past intersect. A story told from two angles.

The story opens with the discovery of the left half of the body of a victim of the Half Body serial murders that occurred six years ago. Stranger still, the body shows no signs of decomposition. Mizuki enlists the help of Ryuki, the agent once assigned to the serial murders.

Ryuki’s Story: The Past

Here we see the history of the serial murders of Half Body from Ryuki’s point of view. The investigation begins when only the right half of a body suddenly appears in a studio during a game show. Mizuki also appears here as a 12-year-old girl.

■ New survey items

The game consists of two parts: Investigation and Somnium. During the investigation, the story unfolds as players navigate the real world, examine crime scenes, and conduct interviews with suspects and witnesses. Here, the goal is to gather information and gather evidence.

The main protagonists Mizuki and Ryuki both have a prosthetic left eye. This prosthesis or “AI-Ball” is equipped with advanced artificial intelligence, as well as visual functions such as X-rays, thermal imaging and night vision that can help them discover clues. Mizuki and Ryuki used the AI-Ball to secretly see what’s behind a wall or inside a closed box, and even changes in body temperature; something impossible with the naked eye. For the sequel, AI-Ball’s new features include “Wink Psync”, “Virtual Reality”, and “Truth Reenactment”.

Wink Psync

Virtual reality

With virtual reality, agents use a recreated virtual space to collect clues. The virtual space includes information digitized from X-rays and thermal imaging. By switching modes, special views can be applied to an entire space for investigation. Using virtual reality also involves solving puzzles or codes placed on a stage.

Reconstruction of the truth

When enough clues are gathered in virtual reality, the game moves on to piecing together the truth. When examining the course of an incident, clues are applied to issues that have emerged, to clarify the truth. If the truth can be revealed without contradiction, officers will be able to see a visual reconstruction of the incident.
