Disaster Report 4 is the latest in a hyper-niche series of Japanese adventure games that, as the name suggests, tasks you with surviving the fallout of a natural disaster. In this instance Japan is hit by a massive earthquake, and you need to make your way through the rubble, helping people on the way.
On a technical level the game is often raw, but there’s a spirit and soul to this one that makes it distinctive, and so incredibly interesting. Well-written, subtle, nuanced and rich, Disaster Report 4 is the best game that most people are going to overlook in 2020.
Stay tuned for my full review on DDNet tomorrow!
