Description

You are thrown into a weird world by the machine Garage. Can you escape from it?

Garage - This weird machine is said to create a bizarre dark world by working on the subject's subconscious mind.
The player character is thrown into an enclosed world filled with sewage, with decaying wooden buildings and rusted metals.
And he discovers that his body has been changed into something in between a machine and a living creature.
He wanders around this structurally complex maze-like world in search of a way out.

"Garage: Bad Dream Adventure" was originally released as a PC adventure game in 1999. In this game, the player character enters his inner world through a psychotherapeutic machine. He is turned into an odd-looking biological machine and searches for a way to escape from that world. Because of its unique world setting, it is described as one of the top 3 warped games or bizarre games.

It is basically a mystery-solving exploratory adventure game. But it also has many RPG elements such as character development through body modifications and intricate fishing system. And the story questions the ambiguity of escaping from the world and staying in the world.

One of the features of Garage is its detailed world building. Elements like energy circulation, ecosystem and how the world came about are intertwined tightly, and are reflected in the game system, bringing to life the feel of the deep another world. The unique feeling of strangeness and anxiety surrounding the whole game, even though it is not a horror or depressing game, is created by these settings and system.

In this mobile remastered version, almost all images have been retouched, videos have been revised using AI frame interpolation, user-interface and game balance have been improved, and new chapters, subquests and multiple endings have been added.

Map = Essential

I got Garage on PC a couple months ago with a translation tool patch and, while sort of janky, it helped me get through a bit of the first part of the game, just sort of meandering around and talking to characters. But not having a map to see where I was going (if I’m not mistaken, a physical paper map was included with one or more editions of the game when it released in the 90’s) really kept me from booting up the game for successive plays, just knowing wherever I end up, I won’t be able to reliably find my way back to save in time. That’s totally different with this Remaster. Having access to a map makes this extremely disorienting track layout suddenly make a lot more sense, and I’ve played 2 hours nonstop so far and have finally been able to properly play through to the 4th chapter before writing this. I’m really loving the character writing and smoother look of the entire game, and surprisingly don’t mind playing it with a touchscreen rather than a mouse (although a proper PC re-release would be welcome, and I think Sakuba could hit a monetary second/third wind and reach an even larger audience this way). The translation seems to be up to snuff as well. Admittedly I can’t really say much about the quality beyond the 2 hours/4 chapters I’ve played, but based on this limited experience, it’s a 5/5 for me. As the review before mine said, you should really give this truly original and uniquely immersive game a spin, I don’t think you’ll regret it.

A Masterpiece

This is easily one of my favorite games of all time. I won't go into detail but I highly recommend giving this obscure classic a shot.
