Review of a Doujin Title: “Lost Phantom”

Foreword: Okay so nothing really fancy here; it’s a doujin game by Cheris Soft that I happened to randomly pick up one day and go “Hmm, seems interesting. Let’s give it a run”. As some of you know, I play quite a bit of doujin games solely because of the fact that doujin games are often created by those who actually enjoy the RPG+story infused genre, and actually fucking KNOW how to first write a story (unlike the idiots who write the same school-life bullshit and sell it as a galge), but also design a game revolving around said story.

Now I’m not here to give exclusively praises for this title, but I still want to point out that it’s been MUCH more worthwhile spending roughly 20-30 hours for this doujin game and reading its story than playing cheap charage like my last review.

For those who are actually interested in playing this game:
I’m uploading a save for Year 1 Day 1 where you have Max Funds, Troops, and Food. I highly recommend you view the prologue by clicking start on the main screen, then moving onto using my save file IF you’re not the type to want to spend hours mindlessly clicking to gather resources for battles. The choice is yours.

Title: ロストファントム (Lost Phantom)
Producers: Cheris Soft (Link to their HP: Warning [18+])

Synopsis: It is now the decade of 1660, and the Greaus Kingdom has been ruling over El Titania with justice and equality. One day, however, a huge earthquake shakes the lands and a suspicious masked man is spotted unconscious on the beach. The leader of a squad named “Trish” is assigned to investigate this man, who is literally butt-naked except for a suspicious mask he’s wearing. Strangely enough, this mask won’t come off physically, and the Commander (who is also Trish’s Father) gives this strange masked man his own armor as soon as he meets him.

This is the beginning of the adventure of Ash, and his conquest with Trish and other comrades. Ash himself has no memories of who he is and why he’s wearing this strange mask, but agrees to assist Trish fend off strange bandits that starts to attack the kingdom.

On the way, he will slowly encounter new comrades, and later on find out who he really is.
