Conception 2: Children of the 7 Stars

Source: http://www.criticalgamer.co.uk

The game Conception 2 is for the Nintendo 3DS and it mostly centers around a boy who you can whoever but I chose to leave the name as it was, so we’ll say his name is Wake. Twenty years ago, dark circles appeared out of nowhere all around the world. Eventually, they were called Dusk Circles and the monsters that crawled out of them and terrorized the people were called The Dusk.

I solution was quickly gathered when the Star God that they worship chose certain people to acquire special powers to fight off these monsters. These people are called Disciples and they would know that they were chosen by the Star God when a brand would suddenly appear on their body. Then, they get shipped off to the Academy where they get trained and educated.

When Wake gets their though and takes the exam to find out which rank he’s supposed to be in, he’s in for a surprise. I won’t spoil it for you, but it wasn’t what I was thought it was going to be. Usually, when I’m playing a game I can pretty much guess what’s going to happen next, but looks like I was a little off on this one.

Back to the game, other than fighting monsters with their special powers and sealing away Dusk Circles, they have another job. That’s to create as many Star Children as possible. Now, this is where this RPG game starts to feel like your playing a sim dating game. Apparently, you have to woo all this girls in order for you and her to participate and complete the ‘ritual‘ as they call it.

They try to sugar coat what your looking at during the ritual, but we all know what this is and I find it quite funny how the characters explain it like its not what it looks like. But, then his friend, Chlotz, says that he’s jealous of him because Wake has the excuse to say that its his duty to help make as many Star Children as possible.

Star Children to me are like those little fairies that like to follow you around everywhere, except these are actually helpful in a fight. Also, they are absolutely adorable and what kind of child you can end up with is almost random……almost.

The only thing that’s in your control is type of child you want. You want to be a swordsman, magician, grappler, etc.

The story is actually pretty good. I couldn’t put it down and I can’t wait to see what will happen next in the game and what will happen in the end.
