"Buried Stars" is a new mystery adventure game developed by Team Largo and LINE Games Corporation. A collapse that broke out at a live broadcast of a survival audition TV show. A fatal incident occurs in front of trapped performers and staff. Who is the murderer? Why… How could this happen? Beautiful 2D characters in a realistic 3D environment that depicts the scene of the collapse, giving the game more dramatic and dynamic effects. Various original scores and sound effects with outstanding voices of veteran voice actors provide a more immersive game experience. ‘Phater,’ a fictional social networking service, shows the responses outside the collapse site and sometimes provides hints to help find the truth. In conversations with survivors, there are various choices. The story branches out in different directions with each decision made, and the results may vary dramatically depending on these choices.

Buried Stars delivers an interesting and current premise, although with an execution that could be refined in order to make the player's journey less tiresome.

Review in Portuguese | Read full review

Buried Stars could have been a 5/5 game, easily. Unfortunately, the narrative thought behind the game really relied on me having a personal interest in the characters and their plight, and thanks to the inelegant and overly literal localisation, it became impossible to see them as anything but constructs and narrative tools.
