This creepy visual novel didn't get nearly enough attention.
As Atsuki Saijo, a high school student who also happens to be a member of the FORT organization, you're tasked with tracking down victims of the mental parasite SILENT. SILENT is borne from the negative feelings of human beings and can eventually drive them to suicide. Isolating and destroying this parasite is a disturbing process in itself as it's comprised of some extremely creepy text, voices, and other bizarre occurrences playing out on the touch screen of the Nintendo DS.
You must âscratchâ at the surfaces of where the SILENT hide to uncover the worms themselves, nestled within a haven of negative thoughts. From uncovering the motives of a serial killer to reading some of the final ruminations of victims, Lux Pain is teeming with uncomfortable situations that elevate it above other visual novels concerned mainly with forging relationships and one-night stands.
If you've been looking for something to play while traveling during the long holiday season, Lux Pain is an excellent choice.
