We at Lemnisca are proud to announce that we are collaborating with Regista, Yeti, and Sekai Project to officially release Root Double- Before Crime * After Days- Xtend Edition in English! This is a very exciting opportunity that we are all pleased to participate in, and we hope that you will all look forward to the release and support us in this endeavor. We shall strive to give you all the best quality product available and to live up to all your expectations.
The year is 2030. Business is as usual in the isolated research city of Rokumei–that is until several explosions suddenly go off in the nuclear research facility known as “LABO.” The city sends in “Sirius,” an elite rescue squad, to deal with the situation. But the situation only gets worse when LABO’s nuclear reactor melts down, sending the facility into lockdown–with members of Sirius and survivors still trapped inside. With lethal radiation leaking everywhere and not enough anti-radiation medication to last until lockdown lifts, the survivors make more and more grim discoveries. In their struggle for survival, in a deathtrap full of fire and radiation, they learn that doubt is their greatest enemy, and trust their greatest asset.
The story of Root Double features two different protagonists: Watase Kasasagi, a rescue squad captain who has lost his memories in the hours after the incident, and Natsuhiko Tenkawa, a student piecing together the clues in the six days before. The only key to survival lies in the player’s hands with the Senses Sympathy System (SSS). Unlike traditional visual novels, Root Double does not have clear cut “choices,” but rather, the game uses SSS to allow the player to manipulate the story based purely upon emotion. Your emotions projected upon the characters, particularly your trust in them, shape the progression of the story. Only with effective use of this system and completion of both protagonists’ stories can the player piece together the truth and hope to discover a way out of the facility.

As part of our agreement to partner with Regista and Yeti on this project, we have taken all our patches and assorted translations down. However, we cannot say anything at this point about what will become of our translations. We hope for your understanding during this transition. Also, we will be moving to a new site at some point in the future, but for now, we will still be here. We will make a post about our new site’s location at the appropriate time.
We have also added an RSS feed to the site so that everyone interested can use it to stay updated on our site for now. In the future, we plan to update this into a mailing list where we will send e-mails to readers who are interested in receiving periodic updates about our group.
We look forward to bringing you all this official release of Root Double and hope that you are all eagerly waiting for this.
