Thank you Sekai Project for sending us this game to review!

Resette is a twelve-year-old physician/healer that has been wandering around the forest for days with her feline assistant, Gaede.  She’s getting hungry and stumbles upon an unconscious boy in the woods. Seeing that he has some bread, she eats it as an advance payment for the healing services that she’ll be providing for him.  Some of Resette’s actions are questionable and Gaede is quite vocal when he doesn’t agree with her logic or actions.  

Logic will be required to solve many of the puzzles and contraptions scattered in this game world.  If you’re not working on a gadget to unlock a hidden key, chances are that you’ll be walking around and gathering/combining items in this 2D point and click adventure game.

Highlights:

Strong Points: Cute point and click adventure game that has witty dialogue and a thought provoking story
Weak Points: Game breaking bugs and short amount of gameplay
Moral Warnings: Blood and violence; healing magic used

Some of the puzzles are easier to solve than others.  I was able to complete the weights and balance one without any help but some of the others I solved with the help of a YouTube walkthrough.  Sadly, some of the puzzles like the aforementioned weights one glitched out on me where I lost a crucial weight needed to solve it. Be sure to save early and often because that wasn’t the only bug I encountered.  

Even when I saved I still lost some progress and had to re-read some dialogue all over again.  Fortunately, there’s a skip button that I used multiple times.  Despite the glitches and slow downs, I still managed to beat this game in roughly two hours.

+3 for a good moral lesson (forgiveness)

Graphically, this game has a combination of art styles.  The backdrops are water color paintings while the characters are anime themed.  The intro movie/game trailer is well done and is similar to many anime intros out there.  The interface is a little strange and by default this game does not run in full-screen mode.  Activating full-screen is done by pressing the F11 key, but bringing up the menu to exit the game brings it back into a windowed game mode.

The background music is fitting and pleasant to listen to.  There is no voice acting, but the dialogue is funny and clean enough for children to enjoy this game.  The plot is a little dark and deals with people blindly following the law no matter the cost.  There are some violent scenes and blood is shown as a result.  Despite the violence, there is a theme of forgiveness.

While the story of healing and forgiveness is good in Resette's Prescription ~Book of memory, Swaying scale~, I have a hard time recommending this short game at full price.  It’s definitely worth picking up on sale and hopefully the glitches are addressed before a discount becomes available.  In the end, any anime or point and click adventure gamer should keep an eye out for this cute game.
