Area-X Demo

By zeiva

Area-X is a blend between Visual Novel and Adventure Game. Follow the story of Elcia as she time travels and solves the mysteries of her surroundings. The game spans six chapters, of which you can explore multiple dimensions, complete missions, and make choices to determine Elcia's fate.

STORY

In the far future, people live 1000 meters deep underground. Technology is abundant, but life is a constant struggle. An organization sought to end this by sending people back in time to recover lost natural resources. Elcia is one of such people. As a Time Negotiator, it's her job to travel across various dimensions and negotiate with people of the past.

However, in a strange twist of fate, Elcia accidentally stumbled upon an unknown dimension known as "Area-X" during her very first mission. Following its discovery, more bizarre incidents and conspiracies awaited her one after another - all of this eventually led to discovering the uncanny nature of the world and how it all ties to Elcia’s very own mysterious past...

Oh, if only I weren't a broke-ass student who can't afford extra stuff I would buy this game one hundred times over...
This is glorious and I will never tire of playing it.
As soon as I get my hands on extra money, that full version is coming home to momma!

I just finished AreaX a few days ago, and it was amazing! I felt like I was reading a fantastic novel that I couldn't put down! I loved guessing what was going to happen, and so many things caught me by surprise. I don't know how you were able to balance such serious and funny moments. I was laughing one moment, and choking up the next. The beautiful artwork and fascinating story really inspired me.

Thank you for making this wonderful game, zeiva! I just love everything about it and it will always hold a special place in my heart! Kept reading people complaining about the difficulty of the mini-games, but there are people who appreciate them, and for me personally the level of mini-games in Area-X is perfect, not too hard like in your earlier games but same fun and not too easy!
zeiva's avatar
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! Especially the mini-games. They took me a lot of time to make, so it makes me happy that you find them fun and challenging ^^

That was a very good demo and amazingly beautiful music. I found where to purchase the game. Is the soundtrack coming with it for listening to when I am not playing the game or not?
zeiva's avatar
The soundtrack is royalty-free music, so I don't have the right to resell it. There is however, an in-game soundtrack gallery.

Ah do you think I could get a note with the tracks or would I need to see the list in the game?
zeiva's avatar
You can find the full list in the game.

This is amazing but I have to ask, how did you make a save and load buttons? I've been trying to look on the internet but I couldn't find anything about it.

This game is so amazing! I really wish more people could know about this, because the fanbase is so small^^; All the characters are so interesting and their stories fit together so perfectly.

I love this game!  I'm hoping we get to see some of the characters again in Silent-X
zeiva's avatar
Yep, they all will appear in Silent-X. :)

Oooh, damn you man, this game is so amazing! I've been wanting to buy a couple of your games for a while and I think I'm finally going to do it now that I have spare money. I love how you make this things, they're all so well thought out and developed. Really amazing, good job!! ^o^
I hope you continue doing games for us to enjoy:3
zeiva's avatar
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'll definitely continue making game as long as I can. :)

Hey, Zeiva! Just wanted to let you know that I bought this game but the one that came home was X-Note. It wasn't that much of a big deal, because I was planning on buying it also, and I assumed that the error was mine.
But, today I went to buy this game again and I looked very carefully over every step I made and there seems to be an error on your part. In the Area-X page (zeiva.net/otome/area_x_story.h…) when you click on getting the CD it redirects you to PayPal but instead of adding the Area-X game, it adds the X-Note. I managed to order the other one either way, but I thought you'd like to know so you can change it ^^
Continue making such amazing games!
And I'll be waiting for the Silent-X game to come out so i can order it too ;)
Hugs!

Thank you for telling me. Since both sites are made from the same template, I confused the two very often. >.<''' I'll go fix it now! Thank you again, and sorry for making you buy the wrong one. orz
