Description of Eastern Mind: The Lost Souls of Tong Nou
Description from the publisher:
A game in which you search for your lost soul on an island that takes the shape of a giant green head, and in which you must die and be reincarnated 9 times in order to succeed, is different to say the least. From the mind of Osama Sato, a Japanese artist and composer of some note, Eastern Mind offers something truly different. The game worlds are a cacophony of images and music, populated by some of the strangest beings you will encounter anywhere. Take for instance Pang-Xie, a resident of Mon-Chien, the Land of Dreaming, who dines on his own legs, or Moku-Gyou, who believes that the birdlike creature that lives on his head is the only thing saving him from being devoured by ants. Then there is Tong-Nou him/it self, an organic being of an island within which all the creatures dwell, and which you enter through the ears or other cranial openings, or by ripping yourself a new one. The characters have an original look as well. One internet article described them as somewhere between ornamental jewellery and Mr Potato Head
