Psyvariar 2 – The Will To Fabricate
Space Year 425.
The GUIS (Galactic Unified Intelligence System) which collapsed
under a surprise attack by the Medium Unit, stopped functioning
and never revolted against mankind again. However, by committing
unspeakable acts, GUIS sowed the seeds of trouble for future generations
Space Year 426.
After the death of the great leader, mankind completely lost its
direction. Some people called for the restoration of GUIS. Some
spoke in support of the new Psyvariars, with praise for the Medium
Units, and some did nothing but watch and wait. Some took solace
in religion. Horrendous conflicts erupted all over the world -
early signs of the cataclysm that was to come.
We want to shoot big, nasty robot
men until they blow up.
Space Year 423.
Suddenly, the conflicts ceased as if it had never happened. This
peaceful settlement was the result of psychic interference by
Lambda. Lambda had worked out a psychic reform program on its
own and for a long time implemented it in secret. Lambda judged
that the resoration of the GUIS regime would be nothing but a
fetter that would delay the progress of mankind. Lambda sought
to promote the legitimate evolution of mankind and to construct
a society controlled by mankind itself. That effort was the construction
of Psyvariar society. Building this new society and launching
it smoothly was an enormous task, requiring prodigious time and
effort. Yet there was no doubt that mankind had taken the first
step towards a new era.
Zero Year 113.
While the psyvariar population was increasing and its civilisation
developing, the Order Of Spiritual Entropy (WOSE) became aware
of the presence of ‘The Will To Fabricate’ behind
the scenes. When WOSE realised, the collapse of their religious
community would be just around the corner.
We want lots of noise, explosions
and pretty bullet patterns.
It started to develop Eta – a psychical
systematic artificial intelligence (PSAI) in order to supplement
the fading cognitive memories of the community.
Zero year 121.
WOSE managed to complete a prototype of Eta – although its
cognitive memories were severely eroded. Before its total collapse,
WOSE successfully transferred its cognitive memories to Eta and
sent it to planet Earth.
If we want silly stories, we will
watch films and read books.
Soon our cognitive memories will fall into oblivion
because of the dark plot of The Will To Fabricate.
Dear Eta… Fulfill your duties as the guardian
of our thoughts and purify this world of fabrication. Restore
the great God and re-establish the world by the sword of Intention.
Zero Year 1088.
And now the new great war begins.
Psyvariar 2 is an ace shooting game which is
like Psyvariar on the PS2 only with nicer, Ikaruga-like graphics
and it’s a bit harder and the bosses are absolutely top
and it looks gorgeous and even the music is quite good.
RODENT CASH RATING -
Things to 'Make' and 'Do'.
Lovely zappy-obsessed people with a dead friendly and helpful
Crazy-ass shooter ‘Superplay’

Official. Probably a good idea to learn how
to speak Japanese before going here.
