About the Science Adventure Series
With an original story planned and created by Chiyomaru Shikura of MAGES., the series is based on the concept of "99% science and 1% fantasy," a science fiction suspense that uses real-world scientific events as the framework of the story. It has been developed in a variety of media, including novels, manga, and anime, as well as games. Science Adventure Series games released in North America and Europe include CHAOS;HEAD, STEINS;GATE, ROBOTICS;NOTES, and CHAOS;CHILD.
A physical release has also been confirmed for Europe and will be published by Numskull Games.
Looking forward to this one? Comment below.
I’ve only ever played Steins ; Gate and a bit of Robotic ; Notes, but this is still pretty exciting to see these getting localized. Steins ; Gate was a masterpiece.
I grabbed all the Steins I could on sale, but still haven’t gotten around to em sadly!
I love stories rooted in real science, even if it’s only current theoretical science. Which is why I figured Stein would be right up my alley, and now I’m discovering there’s more stuff in the Spikchun universe that I’d probably enjoy…. There goes my wallet!
Gotta finish out Octopath 2 first, then hopefully I’ll remember to check out the Stein series
The art style is fantastic in this one.
It's always funny to read the "the series is based on the concept of "99% science and 1% fantasy" because the very first entry, Chaos;Head, was a bonkers high fantasy adventure about spoiler magical sword wielding teens.
Anyway psyched for this. Have played all the other entries. They're all of varying quality and none touch Steins;Gate, but still.
Surprised they made the effort to add English voice acting. I don't really care either way but it's nice to see them going the extra mile regardless. Every other game in the series I've played so far has been really great so I'm pretty keen.
English voice acting should make these things a LOT more playable. It's a great series but it can be really hard to just find the time to give undivided attention to reading them compared to if you could just let them run while multitasking. Kind of a reason why even though Corpse Factory isn't nearly as good as Steins;Gate I got through it in one day quite easily.
"Ahh, looks like Spike made another crappy game!" -Monokuma
In all seriousness..this looks incredible! I will probably have finished RAIN CODE by then, so i will give this game my full, undivided attention when it launches. Expecting the Danganronpa references as well!! xD
Day one! Been waiting a long time for this one. Can't believe they went as far as to give it an English dub as well. This will likely be my GOTY.
@Yannis Spike published but Mages developed. Actually it's been in development for 9 years. Lots of us have been waiting a long time for this next entry in the Science Adventure series. After this they're doing Steins;???
GAME OVER MAN, GAME OVER!! WERE ALL MEAT! GAME OVER!!
Does this company still own the fire pro wrestling series?
I can see myself read the text anyhow even while english dub.
(old habits never die)
Going to play this in english in first place, because I want to know how good that dub will be.
@JustMonika oh i see. Steins'Gate is another one of those series i haven't had the time to delve into. One day when there's a sale i swear i'm gonna grab em all off the e-shop!!
I'm super happy 😁. I played every science adventure from mage
Haven't played any of the Science Adventure Series games but still, this one looks great too, love its art style and while I'd play it with Japanese voices I'm happy English ones are included for those who prefer them!
@Lizuka «English voice acting should make these things a LOT more playable.»
Why, though? Usually, localizations' quality are quite average at best. And when you play Japanese game with [insert your language] text and Japanese voice-overs, that's possible to understand how many things localizers did change during the localization/translation process. And they can change the things that shouldn't be changed. Currently, I play Phantom Breaker: Omnia - Japanese visual novel fighting game. This game received full English localization with English dub, but... After looking at the localization's quality, I can say - if you're gonna play the game with English text and JP voice-overs, you will encounter a lot of inconsistencies there. I already gave a score to this localization's quality - D+. This is one of the worst localizations that I have ever seen before.
@Rayquaza2510 «Going to play this in english in first place, because I want to know how good that dub will be.»
Dub can be good... But what's about localization's quality? Good dub ≠ good localization. This is one of the reasons why I play Japanese games only with JP voice-overs.
@AG_Awesome «Fire Pro Wrestling (ファイヤープロレスリング, Faiyā Puro Resuringu) is a professional wrestling video game series originating from Japan, started in 1989 by Human Entertainment, and currently developed and owned by Spike Chunsoft.» – English Wikipedia.
@Yannis The anime adaptation of Steins;Gate is actually what turned me into a weeb, lol .. I own but haven't played the visual novel yet. I did read through Chaos;Head Noah though and am about to read through Chaos;Child.
@JustMonika Yea i'm gonna watch that for sure after i play the games. I don't watch much anime nowadays but the last i watched was the Danganronpa anime adaptation. Can't wait to finish the other games so i can continue binging the rest of the seasons
@JohnnyMind sames here, i'm too preoccupied with dang it grandpa, but i will find the time eventually...
@Yannis I talked to the writer of the Danganronpa 3 anime adaptation. He also wrote School-Live! which I'm a mega fan of. The reason it was easy to contact him is because he's also a Japanese to English translator, lol
