Catherine: The Mysterious Tale of Rapunzel - Afterword

Hello there. My name is Kazuaki Emoto. This book is a novelisation of Atlus' adventure game Catherine from a slightly different angle.

I'll let you read the book itself to find out what's different - have you all played the game?

Ahh, it's fun, isn't it? The combination of the hellish horror adventure sections, which make you want to see what comes next, and toughness (perhaps too much?) of the puzzle sections is perfect, and from the time I started it to the time I finished, I couldn't bring myself to put it down. Sometimes, I even shed tears on floors that I couldn't beat, and yelled, "I'll never be able to do that again!" at Vincent's miraculous climbing when I finally managed it.

That's how addictive it is, and if anyone has yet to play it, please do get yourself a copy. I recommend it.

By the way, my favourite characters are Jonny out of the men and Catherine out of the women. ...Oh, but it's hard to let go of Katherine, too. Struggling like this, I would surely be finding myself in the nightmare. Ahh, I'm falling...!

...Pardon me. I do have rather strange dreams each night, however. This means that I can't think of what happens to "them" in a detached manner. I've actually had several dreams in which I'm falling myself. They're really scary, you know. They do startle me awake. And when I looked in the mirror and saw that my eyes were the eyes of a sheep... well, I don't really remember whether or not that happened, but that might be a good thing in itself.

I hope you all have good dreams. Another time, then.
