sigh Okay, I feel compelled to jump in (as I do whenever anyone mentions LSD)
Simply: You cannot get it, sorry.
Less simply: You could track down a real copy - it was produced once in 1998, released only in Japan, and didn’t sell well at all - or, more easily, track down a ROM from one of the perhaps three websites acknowledging it. The most enthusiastic is probably FacePunch Studios’ recent thread on it, followed by Select Button’s less recent foray into LSD, and then the most comprehensive (and also Japanese) site I don’t know the name of. I’d provide links, but I can’t be bothered now; a quick Google search should reveal all (I mean, it’s not like they’re lost in a torrent of information ).
The game is noted for being:
- Scary - very much so, in a bizarre way that is almost inexplicable, since there isn’t any explicit violence*.
- Hard to get into
- Bad, graphics-wise - as most games were for the PSX in 1998…
OH AND LSD IS NOT A RECENT GAME FOR THE PC IT IS A 1998 GAME FOR THE PSX THE GAME IS NOT FOR YOU IF YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND THIS SIMPLE FACT excuse me. Enough people expect the graphics to be good and then decry the entire game when they discover they’re not that I felt I had to say this.
I’d tell you about how the game itself works if it were not for the facts that
A) An interesting thing about the game is that it has nigh-endless list of things to show you. Any lists would be incomplete and would not accurately capture what happens in this game. That is to say, the game is confusing as… you get the idea.
B) I’m too scared to play it myself apart from a few dream’s worth when I first got ahold of it. My appearance of expertise on the game sort of shrivels and dies at this point.
And as to not be offtopic, in no particular order:
- My “omega” self - who I will be just before I die
- Both of my grandfathers (unfortunately deceased just after I was born)
- J.R.R. Tolkien
- My subconscious
- Leonardo da Vinci - Just playing Rise of Legends today and was reminded of him. (If you’ve never played RoL before, just ignore it)
- Arthur Dent
