I'll probably rant about how underappreciated Little King's Story and Muramasa etc. are for the rest of eternity but this little gem deserves some more attention to. Like, if you're into those weird experiences where it's more about the experience man!!!! over the gameplay or whatever, or a unique twist on survival horror like games, I'd highly recommend it. The atmosphere and story alone make it worthwhile in a way. It's sense of loneliness and desperation for companions is 2nd to none and understands the apocalypse without having to make it GRITTY AND BROWN FOR GROWNUPS!!!111!

also the shop guy is legendary

Jim Sterling's review probably sums it up better than I could though...

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Still in my backlog, though I did put it in for about 20 minutes to get a feel for it. Liked what I saw. May have to bump it up in priority.

But yeah, a post-apocalyptic game that isn't prefaced "In a Grimdark future where there only exists Grimdark anti-heroes and brown..." sounds refreshing.

I never thought of it that way. Now I'm half-tempted to pick it up. Maybe if I can get it for $5...

I rented it from Gamefly ages ago, but sent it back before completing it. I do regret it though, as what I did play was very interesting.

Fragile Dreams is not a game that everyone will love, but I certainly did. It was one of my favorite games on the Wii, primarily because it was such an interesting story in which I became quite invested. The gameplay is fairly slow and methodical (which is not to say bad), but it looks really good and the characters are very memorable. It's a little like Heavy Rain on the PS3, although not nearly so cinematic, in that the story really drives the game forward. I actually cared more about the people in Fragile Dreams than I did those in Heavy Rain.

It's been nearly two years since I last played Fragile Dreams, but it is a game that I still think about. I also agree with kkslider that the Merchant is an excellent character. Also, while the English voice acting is good, I thought it was great to play through in Japanese.
