Are you feeling a bit ill? Worry not; the doctor is in! In Resette’s Prescription ~Book of memory, Swaying scale~, you’ll meet Resette, our short-fused heroine, and her cute cat assistant, Gaede. In the midst of the forest, the duo stumble upon Achille, an unconscious young boy suffering from ‘sleeping sickness,’ a disease that has him locked in a comatose state due to deeply-rooted subconscious trauma and fear.
With the magical ability to enter people’s minds, Resette and Gaede venture into the young boy’s mind in effort to figure out what exactly it is that’s troubling him and why he’s unable to wake up. Will our heroine and her feline friend be able to cure Achille by helping him resolve and overcome his trauma and fears so can once again go back to being a normal, carefree boy?
In this 2D adventure, players will guide Resette and Gaede as the two enter Achille’s mind to help him face his doubts and fears. As players move from one area to the next, they’ll be faced with a variety of puzzles they must solve and obstacles they must overcome in order to obtain items that will lead them further into Achille’s mind. Minds are represented by huge libraries which hold what seems to be an infinite amount of books. Those books are person’s recorded memories that they’ve experienced throughout their lives. When a person’s memory becomes corrupted by their doubts, it’s up to Resette to put her abilities to use!
As you move from one area to the next, you’ll be faced with certain obstacles that will try to prevent getting further. Like in this case, a gate has been shut with no way to unlock it, so Resette will have to find a way to get past her. Luckily for her, there’s a ladder she can use to get to the ceiling of the building! But unfortunately, she can’t reach the ladder…so it’s up to you find the tools available onscreen for her to get that ladder down.
You’ll be faced with a variety of puzzles to solve in order to get items that will lead you further into Achille’s mind. As shown above, one puzzle will have you searching for missing board game chips and figure out where to put them on the game board which will unlock a box containing a key to open a locked door. Another puzzle will have you adjusting circuits that will fix an electricity problem. These puzzles and many more will put your skills to the test!
This game has a distinct visual style; the background images are these lovely hand-drawn watercolor images. It also features characters drawn in a very cute chibi-style! What’s more, these characters show a wide variety of emotions not only through their speech, but also through their body language. It really makes the game look like you’re reading a picture book!
