THE LEGEND OF XENOGEARS & XENOSAGA - SHATTERED MONOLITHS

Charles "KadMony" De Clercq

 

In the world of Japanese role-playing games, Xenogears holds an extraordinary position in the pantheon. Renowned for the breadth of its epic story, the depth of its themes as well as its unique universe halfway between science fiction and fantasy, it remains a work of art for many players. Its spiritual successor, the Xenosaga trilogy, experienced many setbacks, to the point of stopping prematurely. However, the ambitions of this space opera were similar, if not greater, to those of Xenogears . Combining philosophy, religion, psychoanalysis and the history of humanity in a typically Japanese pop cultural setting, Xenogears and Xenosaga are among the most compelling video game stories ever produced.


Charles "Kadmony" De Clercq pays these games a passionate tribute, dissecting the details of their development, the mysteries of their universe, the subtleties of their themes as well as their unforgettable music. A unique exploration of the intricacies of these cracked monuments of science fiction, set with a preface by Richard Honeywood, translator of the English version of Xenogears .
