Savior

Savior

NEC PC-9801 - Released - 1986

This is an early adventure game developed by Enix for the NEC PC-98 who’s main selling point was that it contained a lot of animated sequences. For comparison, Square released an adventure game called Will: The Death Trap II the same year who’s animation consisted of the main heroine blinking on the title screen and the sprites flashing different colors or doing other simple animation loops. Savior, on the other, was far more cinematic with characters having a fuller range of movement in certain segments, which must have been very impressive at the time.
