A game in development by one of the creative and music artists behind Plants vs Zomibes, Rakuen is a story about a little Boy who lives in the hospital. His mother reads to him everyday from his favorite storybook, which is about a tribal child living in a fantasy world called “Morizora’s Forest.” One day the child wakes up to find that everyone in his tribe has disappeared. He soon learns that in order to escape danger, his tribe sailed away to a paradise isle called “Rakuen.”
One day, the Boy in the hospital asks his mother if she would take him to the fantasy world from his book. His mother agrees, and together they set off on a great adventure.
The Boy also begins to learn more about the patients who live around him in the hospital… In helping those around him, the Boy deals with questions about empathy, hope, and what it means to leave behind a legacy by coming to terms with your own story.
