I've started playing The Book of Watermarks recently. It's an adventure game kind of like myst. All FMVs and the movement is really slow but the sound and story telling are interesting. Worth checking out, just make sure you give it an hour of your time to really get into it.

While we wait for the arrival of "Garage", we can continue to discuss and share obscure and rare games. A long time ago thanks to / vr / I've found "The Book of Watermarks" for ps1 downloading the iso from a torrent almost dead. Today I decided to put it on my mediafire account for all of you

>The game opens with a quote from Shakespeare's play The Tempest, on which the game seems to be loosely based. The plot concisely unfolds during the full-motion video that follows. And with an American actor! Jack Donner, who appeared in series like Star Trek and Mission: Impossible, and more recently in the J. Edgar movie, stars as the game's narrator. Not only that, but the whole game is in English! There is almost no text during gameplay, but the FMVs punctuating your progress are all spoken in English (and subbed in Japanese).

>The narrator played by Jack Donner is Prospero, the Duke of Milan deposed by his usurping brother Antonio and exiled on a desert island. According to the play, Prospero uses the magical powers of its books to bring the conspirator to the island and punish him. In the process are also brought the King of Naples, Alonso, Antonio's accomplice, and his son the Prince of Naples, Ferdinand. Antonio and Alonso are completely absent of this game, however. You assume the role of Ferdinand, towards whom Prospero seems to have no hostility, and you seek to get your hand on the Duke's 13 magical tomes on Celes Island. There is no text and no major event taking place during gameplay - and neither is there any kind of psychological development regarding the characters, as Ferdinand remains silent for the whole of the game. The interest of the game actually lies in the cultural and historical background of each one the tomes, which are explained during the FMVs. The main theme of the game is human knowledge, and Prospero will adress astrology as much as cooking. There's more than twenty of these short video clips, and the game is actually stored on two CDs as a result.

So has anyone played it? Japanese adventure titles such as Cosmology of Kyoto, Eastern Mind, and this one intrigue me.
