In the 90s there was a niche Japanese game development house called Human Entertainment
, which was perhaps most famous for its Clock Tower series, and was also the launchpad for the career of Suda51. Before they folded in 1999, they released one final title: the massive open world detective game known as Mizzurna Falls.
A casual observation
of the game's design reveals striking similarities
to the more recent cult hit Deadly Premonition (previously
, and previously
). The player is trying to solve a mystery in a small American town, working against the clock, interacting with a world lovingly rendered down to minute details in the clunky 3D of the era
Playing the game directly remains gated to Japanese speaking audiences only, as it was never officially ported, and has yet to receive a fan-translation treatment. However, Youtube user bobrossfreak has a recorded video series
(rest available at his channel, here
) where he streamed a live playthrough and translation of the game's content.
The Japanese fan site mentioned in the Eastern Mind post still exists on geocities.jp, Country of The Bears and Burgers
