description

Red Seed Profile sets stage in a faraway village in Canada. The village is populated by around 150 people and is surrounded by vast forests and fog. Everybody knows everybody else, this is a place where people have no need to lock their doors at night. That is, until the villagers found the body of Anna Graham in the forrest.

The Killer in the Rain is back.

Although the villagers pretend that nothing happened, the mutual trust between them have disappeared, people with clues to the case keep their mouths shut, villagers suspects that the murderer is hiding among them.

You are Francis York Morgan, sent by the FBI to solve the case. Keep your wits and your gun around if you are to clear your mission, and to survive.

Worth a playthrough if you can find it
This game is a balancing act. Dated graphics, odd mechanics, sound effects and BGM that at times are out of place are made up for by deep characters I cared about, a story that was worth following (if at times was difficult due to Japanese symbols). All these pieces just balance together and make a truly interesting and different game.

A new survival horror great
If you don't mind poor production values, can appreciate completely bizzare/surreal story and characters, and loved the PS1 era of survival horror games, you will enjoy this game immensely.

Red Seeds Profile is pretty much everything you've heard about it. There are very noticeable technical errors throughout the entire game, and honestly, it doesn't take away from it a bit. The game feels like a breath of fresh air that the video game industry hasn't produced in years. The game pays homage to various survival horror games, most obviously to Silent Hill. The characters are truly interesting, the main protagonist especially. I was really surprised to see a character like this in a game. The story is very absorbing, absurd, deranged, nonsensical, but most of all, entertaining. The soundtrack caught me off guard as well, it's quite pleasing. There are a lot of nice guitar tunes to listen to. There is actually a bunch to do in this game, lots of side quests and collectables. The game is also quite long, and will definitely have you playing for over 20 hours if you complete the story. Do yourself a favor: get this game and don't look back.

Some info for PS3 gamers (I have the HK version):
-The game has 100% English voice acting.
-There is Japanese text throughout, but everything is very easy to navigate. Menus are mostly in English, and that is most important. Most interface related things are in English as well.
-Non-Japanese literate players will have the most trouble with: reading side quest info, reading the map, reading dialogue without voice acting (uncommon, all story scenes have voice acting), using the radio to quick travel, reading information regarding solving puzzles, reading information regarding inventory items. These problems can be easily worked out by using an FAQ.
-The game comes with a fold-out pamphlet detailing the controls/other mechanics in English.
-Overall, the game still delivers everything it needs to for you to enjoy it to the fullest. Not being able to read Japanese shouldn't pose any big problems.
-It's the exact same game as "Deadly Premonition", "Red Seeds Profile" is the original name of the game.

Avant-garde on a Budget
[The Asian version's language]

The Main-Menu is in English, Also all spoken dialogue is in English. All subtitles, item descriptions, non-spoken dialogue... & pretty much everything else is NOT in English.

Cult Classic
Red Seeds Profile is not for everyone. The graphics are pretty mediocre, the game's sound mix questionable (sometimes the dialogue is drowned out by background music) and the combat a bore. Yet the game is not only very entertaining, it's one of the best detective games available.

I won't spoil the story by going into details, but needless to say the game plays out like an unofficial tribute to Lynch's "Twin Peaks". Agent York Morgan is as eccentric a character as you'll ever see, but behind his arrogance, tics, and other quirks (including questionable sanity), is a highly intelligent and competent investigator. And investigating a bizarre small town murder is what you'll spend your time doing when you're not busy helping out the locals who are just as weird as York.

You'll be so engrossed with the happenings that quickly the mediocre graphics, combat and sound become background noise to what's an excellent game. Better than Heavy Rain? I think so!

Very weird adventure game
Very moody adventure/horror game with bizarre characters.
3D is a bit on the rough side but the ambiance (similare to some David Lynch movies) is completely original...
