The Game46 Okunen Monogatari: The Shinkaron
(PC-98, 1990) is the predecessor to E.V.O.: Search for Eden
(SNES, 1993). We're titling our translation of it E.V.O.: The Theory of Evolution
.Our translation is complete! Download it here on RHDN or here on our team website.
This game is a turn-based RPG about evolution, and is rather darker, with a more fleshed-out story than its sequel Search for Eden
. Unlike the SNES game's body-part-based evolution system, here you evolve by allocating points to one of four stats, and you evolve into an entirely new creature when you cross a certain threshold. Here's
a Hardcore Gaming 101 article about both E.V.O. games, if you want more details.Watch the trailer here.Project Scope
