Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon is a role-playing video game for the Wii developed by Namco Bandai Games in cooperation with Tri-Crescendo. The game was released by Namco Bandai Games in Japan on January 22, 2009. It was later published by Xseed Games in North America on March 16, 2010, and in Europe by Rising Star Games on March 19, 2010.
The player character Seto wanders the world, searching for survivors and the answers behind the disappearance of everyone else, most of humanity itself. Seto also searches for a mysterious girl named “Ren.” In his quest he must deal with ghosts that lurk within the ruins of the abandoned cities. Despite this, the producer of the game insists that Fragile Dreams is not a survival horror, rather it will focus on “human drama”.
The world of Fragile Dreams will be filled with objects, sketches and short stories for the player to examine. Each artifact holds the memories of its former owner, and offers back story and hints to the player. A competition was held where readers of gaming magazines sent in their own sketches and short stories for inclusion in the game.
The Wii Remote is used as an aid in exploration. Seto has access to a flashlight, controlled by the Wii Remote, to illuminate his surroundings as well to solve puzzles and interact with the environment. The flashlight can also uncover hidden enemies which can be detected by pointing the flashlight in their direction and their sounds are picked up through the mini speaker.
Seto is moved with the Wii Nunchuck. Tilting slowly will make him creep around (this is normally used to avoid falling in heavily damaged floors). Pressing the C button on the nunchuck will make him crouch. Crouching helps him crawl into tight spaces and move across somewhat damaged floors.
