|'Lagrange Point' (ラグランジュポイント), is a very late (as in, released in 1991) Japanese-only RPG produced for the NES. This game is notable because Konami teamed up with readers of Family Computer Magazine (ファミリーコンピュータマガジン) to form a group, called 芸夢工房 (geimukoubou, art dream workshop), in order to make this game. The readers were permitted to design the characters, monsters, events, message-texts, music, the title-screen, and such. With enhanced sound for the NES due to Konami's VRC7 sound generator Integrated Circuit, the game is considered a masterpiece to many Japanese people.
The story is about a pilot, Jin (also known as Gin), who is exploring a biohazard outbreak at a space colony, linked to the disappearance of Dr. Stolte. He arrives, only for the spaceship to be attacked. The effect of the outbreak soon becomes clear.
More information on the game can be found on the Japanese Wikipedia (machine translation).
The MKV has been continued until past 1:50:00 to show a secret message after the end.
This run of a Japanese-only RPG with no fan-translation features commentary in the form of Advanced SubStation Alpha soft subtitles created by FractalFusion and the author, neo_omegon. If you use MPlayer to view the MKV, add the -ass option to the commandline to view the subtitles with their proper layout.
