📕 Description [fr]

Un Visual Novel tiré du jeu éponyme relatant l'histoire de 2 personnages unis par le même sort tragique, celui d'être atteint par une maladie incurable, par la Narcissu Team (traduction Française par le studio Kawa Soft).

Narcissu est un Visual Novel tiré du jeu/histoire (un client linux est aussi disponible) éponyme relatant l'histoire de 2 personnages unis par le même sort tragique, celui d'être atteint par une maladie incurable ...
La traduction en Français a été réalisée par le projet Kawa Soft (voir le lien "Dev site").

Deux épisodes :
• Narcissu (utilise le moteur ONScripter-EN, dans le Bottin),
• Narcissu Side 2nd (préquelle de Narcissu, utilise le moteur Ponscripter, dans le Bottin).

À l'aube de ses 20 ans, peu après avoir reçu son permis, un jeune homme voit sa vie basculer lorsqu'il apprend qu'il est atteint d'une maladie mortelle. Transféré au Septième étage de son hôpital, il comprend rapidement que ses traitements ne sont qu'illusoires, et qu'il n'est ici que pour attendre la fin de ses jours. Il rencontrera Setsumi, une jeune fille rongée elle aussi par une maladie sans espoir de traitement, une jeune fille ayant déjà abandonné, une jeune fille qui lui révélera le sort qu'ils partagent : mourir à l'hôpital ou à la maison.

Refusant ce choix, il s'enfuit avec elle en voiture, s'engouffrant au beau milieu de l'hiver à la poursuite d'un destin qu'il veut choisir par lui-même.

Wikipedia :
Narcissu (ナルキッソス Narukissosu?) is a free visual novel by the dōjin group stage-nana, telling the story of a terminally ill young man and woman. It was made with the NScripter engine.

The work was originally written in Japanese by Tomo Kataoka, and subsequently localized and translated into English, Chinese, French, Korean, Russian and Vietnamese by various fan translators. Unlike most fan translations, however, this was an authorised work. The author, however, was not actively involved in the translation process as it had been the case for True Remembrance. Both the original Japanese visual novel and its English version were released as free downloads over the Internet. The web edition of Narcissu has lower graphics and music quality, in order to conserve bandwidth.

Narcissu is an experimental work: it uses minimalist graphics in a very narrow window, and includes two full scripts, one accompanied by a voice track, and the other adapted to work without voices. In the English translation, different translators translated each version, to provide different perspectives on the story.

The original Japanese version uses the NScripter engine; for the English localization, the open source clone ONScripter was used instead, as this has been modified to support English. Narcissu has also been ported to the Nintendo DS.

A second game and a prequel named Narcissu: Side 2nd was released on May 15, 2007 while the third game in the series named Narcissu 3rd - Die Dritte Welt - was released on April 27, 2009. The final game in the series named Narcissu - if there was a tomorrow - (ナルキッソス~もしも明日があるなら~ Narcissu - moshimo ashita ga aru nara -?) was developed by Kadokawa Shoten playable on the PlayStation Portable. The final game is a compilation of all three games with some new extra content added. It was released on June 24, 2010.


The anonymous protagonist is diagnosed with lung carcinoma shortly after his twentieth birthday, and is admitted to hospice care at a hospital in Mito, Ibaraki. There he meets Setsumi, a woman who is few years older than he is, who is also terminally ill. Finding that they both refuse to die in the hospital or at home with their families, they run away together in a silver Honda Integra belonging to the protagonist's father.

They travel west across Japan's many highways and prefectures, initially not knowing where to go, but later collectively decide on taking the narcissus fields of southern Awaji Island as a somewhat arbitrary destination.

🕵️ Test (Narcissu) :
(testé 5 min)
Une interface très soignée, des illustrations assez redondantes mais soignées, une superbe bande sonore, et cerise sur le gâteau : en Français.
A éviter néanmoins si vous êtes dans un moment de déprime :).
Du bon boulot !
