Plants vs. Zombies composer, Laura Shigihara releases the first trailer for her upcoming adventure game, Rakuen, which is set to launch at the end of 2014.
The trailer can be found here (See 2nd page for a direct download link):
Rakuen is a story-based adventure game about a little Boy living in the hospital who asks his mother to escort him to the fantasy world from his favorite storybook. Tasked with helping his fellow patients by interacting with their alter-egos in the fantasy world, the Boy quickly learns that each of them have their own secrets and struggles that are tied to the mysterious hospital in which they all live.
In terms of gameplay, Rakuen functions like a mix between Maniac Mansion, To the Moon, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (though without battles or fighting). The story and character design is influenced by Japanese mythology and children’s culture, as well as films like Miyazaki’s Spirited Away.
