“When you step into this forest, you lose one memory…” Innocent Forest is a fantasy story about a girl called Luclei and the memories of her visitors. The forest of lost memories: a place where they say you can forget one painful occurrence. Kei, (voiced by Yusuke Kobayashi) a young man lost in the forest, encounters a mysterious girl named Luclei (voiced by Rina Hidaka) who lives among the woods and gathers a flock of birds. It is through these birds the past, present and future of lost memories unfolds.
Review: Innocent Forest is a fantasy story about a girl called Luclei and the memories of her visitors. While there are only two scenes they both look good and do set the tone of the story. Some people enjoy these VR graphical novels and many others don’t and ‘Innocent Forest: The Bird of Light’ is going to divide most peoples opinions. Overall I did enjoy it for the full 90+ minutes I was playing it. While some will argue that it isn’t worth the full £3.99 price I feel it does, but only just.
