(what i got from Wikipedia) LSD (Also known as LSD: Dream Emulator) is a semi-rare video game released in Japan in 1998 for the Sony PlayStation video game console based on a dream journal that Hiroko Nishikawa, a staff member at Asmik Ace Entertainment, had been keeping for a decade. It is one of three products released about the journal (the others being a music CD, called LSD And Remixes and the journal itself, published as Lovely Sweet Dream in limited quantity). The game has earned itself a small cult following due to the generally disturbing nature of the game and its content.
Honestly, I do not know what the point of this game is, as the synopsis says it was based on a dream journal that the guy had been keeping for a decade. O.O Anyway, you begin in this little room and I really don't know what you're supposed to do so I walked around and bumped into a wall and was teleported somewhere else(there wil be a few pictures I took of the weird stuff) and apparently the game ends at 365 days. A day usually lasts about 10 minutes unless you fall into something like a hole or a cave or whatnot. Once you get to day 365 though, you will watch some odd video and go all the way back to day 1. My good friend, RaitoKunRyuk has provided me with a video of what happens. This is probably one of the strangest, and creepiest games I've ever played.
The graphics, are decent, for the year this game came out in, which was 1998. You will see what the game looks like with the pictures I provide you after this part of the review. The graphics of this game actually make it a whole lot better in my opinion. See for yourself, this is all i can really say.
The controls for this game were fairly easy, except for the fact that I couldn't figure out how to save the game because it's written in Japanese or something, plus I played it on an Emulator since I don't own a PS1 and this game is fairly hard to obtain for that system. But, I did figure out that the arrow keys were for walking, the X key made you run, S was to start, and I think Shift looked back. Not too hard to figure out, plus didn't have any hard maneuvering to do so wasn't too difficult
