5pb. Streams 4th Science-Adventure Game Chaos;Child's Teaser
posted on by Egan Loo
MAGES. game brand 5pb. began streaming the full teaser movie for its fourth science-adventure game, Chaos;Child, on Friday. MAGES. president and Chaos;Child planner/creator Chiyomaru Shikura streamed the same video (with commentary) off his own MacBook Pro last weekend after 5pb. unveiled the game at the Live 5pb. event.
The story is set in Tokyo's reconstructed Shibuya district in 2015, after a magnitude-7.8 earthquake killed 3,851 people there on November 6, 2009. A major key in the game's story are “Power Seals,” mysterious seals that are placed all around Shibuya. According to the game's staff, many nods to Chaos;HEAd (specifically, its Chaos;HEAd Noah port) will be in the game, since the story is set six years later.
Shikura said that while the thematic image of Chaos;HEAd Noah and Steins;Gate are "rain" and "clouds," the thematic image of Chaos;Child will be "storm." While it will have elements of psycho-suspense like Chaos;HEAd Noah, it will have more horror elements.
Tatsuya Matsubara (5pb.) is producing the game. Mutsumi Sasaki is in charge of the main character designs with Yukihiro Matsuo as sub character designer and uniform designer. CHOCO designed the Di-Swords, and Takeshi Abo is composing the music. Eiji Umehara, Masashi Takimoto, and Tōru Yasumoto are writing the scenarios under the scenario chief supervisor Naotaka Hayashi. Kanji Wakabayashi is directing.
The game is scheduled for next year in Japan.
