If you’ve spent any time hanging out with the FFC regulars, you’ll have noticed that several of us are deeply attracted to weird (Chulip), obscure (The Fifth Disciple) and niche (Chibi-Robi) games; for us, the stranger the better. So, it should come as no surprise to hear that I’m all atwitter for Lux-Pain, Killaware’s debut game for the Nintendo DS.
Historical Kisaragi City is plagued by “Silent”, a worm born of hate and sadness. The Silent infection causes its victims to commit vicious crimes. To avenge his parents, themselves victims of such crimes, Atsuki acquires Lux-Pain, the only thing powerful enough to stop Silent, forever.
You can find more information about Lux-Pain on the game’s site along with the requisite trailer, screenshots, Gregorian-like chanting, and a Nintendo Power preview. Lux-Pain is slated for a US release in March 2009.
Did I mention that Killaware was started by a couple of Atlus ex-pats? We heart Atlus.
