Lucid 9. I assume if you’re reading this now, you’ve already played through Lucid 9 and are looking for content on it. But if you haven’t, here’s the rundown: it’s a visual novel centered around one Yama Ishimoto, who is dealing with the fallout of a series of murders, and the effect it is having on his school. Being the protagonist he is he gets himself involved, without realizing that his crusade to discover the murderer may very well end with him becoming one.
I have a review here covering what I think of the visual novel, but if you’d rather not, just take my word for it: it’s pretty good. What I love most about it though, is how it handles the psychology behind it all. Considering Yama in particular, the story builds up in such a way that you really get a sense of just how messed up he becomes, and from a psychological point of view, it WORKS.
Yama struggles, faces conflict, and potentially loses his mind, and I’ll show you now how it all works. This is going to be a comprehensive look at Yama’s mental state throughout the visual novel, so yes, there will be HUGE spoilers, and it’s gonna be a heavy read. If you haven’t gotten through Lucid 9, I recommend you play through it first, or. You know. You can play through it after. Your choice fam.
