Supernal Epic

by wfgodbold

Today’s selection is from another game I’ve yet to finish, Infinite Undiscovery.

The protagonist, Capell, is mistaken for the leader of a liberation force and broken out of prison; his uncanny resemblance to their leader gets him drafted into their quest to cut the chains binding the moon. Or something.

From the introduction, I wasn’t really clear on what exactly was going on. If drugs weren’t so highly regulated in Japan, I’d expect some hallucinogens were involved in the sales pitch (not just regulated by law, either; when famous people are caught doing drugs, they and everything they’re involved with gets tossed down the memory hole a la L’arc-en-Ciel’s sakura).

“Yeah, man. The moon has these chains on it, and we should totally cut the chains. That would be epic!”

Anyway, it’s an action-RPG; the player controls Capell in real time, and the other party members are controlled by AI. The game was decently received; my main gripe with the couple hours I played through was that the voice acting was awful, and there was no way to revert it back to Japanese dialog.

Like many tri-Ace games, Infinite Undiscovery’s soundtrack was composed by Motoi Sakuraba. He wastes no time in getting down to sweeping, epic music; today’s track plays during the opening cinematic.
