Moon developer Kenishi Nishi asks fans to help him tweet his way to a publisher for a sequel.
The Japan-based game developer behind 1997 PlayStation title Moon: Remix RPG Adventure, has asked fans to use social networking and micro-blogging site Twitter to show their support and help secure a publisher for a second series instalment.
Nishi’s use of Twitter to engage fans highlights the growing use of the platform by Japan-based developers. Suda 51 is an active user of the site and Hideo Kojima has his tweets translated into English for international fans.
The gameplay of Moon: Remix RPG Adventure is experimental, incorporating a real-time calendar and clock. Players are required to travel the game-world, catching the souls of animals killed by a so-called "Hero".
Moon: Remix RPG Adventure was never released outside of Japan, after Ascii US dropped the title from its schedule in late 1997.
