About

SeaBed is a critically acclaimed yuri-themed mystery visual novel told through the perspectives of three separate characters: Mizuno Sachiko, a designer plagued by hallucinations of her past lover; Narasaki Hibiki, Sachiko's friend and a psychiatrist researching the workings of human memories; and Takako, Sachiko's former lover who has been rapidly forgetting her past, including how or why the two women drifted apart despite being together since childhood.

All three live in different worlds, but seek the same goal. To separate truth from illusion. To make sense of their own lives.

The Steam version of SeaBed has been updated to natively support 1440x1080 resolution.Characters:
"At times, I'd wake up at night and hear all the sounds around me as if they were amplified. I'd feel like my head could burst at any second."

Although she moved to Tokyo straight after graduating university in order to seek employment, Mizuno Sachiko soon quit her job to establish Clover Design with her childhood friend Takako, becoming its young CEO.

Her main hobby is reading, but only because nothing else manages to interest her. Although Sachiko used to be quite an avid reader during her school years, finding a job means she now only opens a book every once in a while, whenever her schedule allows it.

After meeting Takako – an inexhaustible source of enthusiasm, as well as a stark contrast to her own personality – during her childhood years, Sachiko’s interests began to shift to whatever the other woman was doing at a given time.


"This is as good a time as any, so let's check it out."

Endlessly interested in and enthusiastic about the world, Takako gives the impression of a woman perpetually stuck in her childhood.

She fell in love with Sachiko at first sight back when they first met at the age of five. However, she does not identify as a homosexual, stressing that Sachiko simply happened to be a woman.

Takako discovers that she suffers from developmental amnesia, a condition that severely impairs her ability to recall many of her memories.


"I just like observing people."

A psychiatrist at Narasaki Mental Clinic. She was Sachiko's classmate and friend during her elementary school years, but the two drifted apart as they enrolled in different middle schools. After learning that Sachiko has been experiencing hallucinations, she takes it upon herself to treat her.

She is extremely picky about her brand of coffee, perhaps because the beverage serves as her sole companion during those long hours spent immersed in research.

Though not religious, she is a strong believer that everything happens for a reason, and all things have their place and order in the grand scheme of the world.

SeaBed reviews and comments

Translated by

Played. I would Not say that this story directly came to me, but some interest in it still is. Although There are a couple of fanservice scenes that can be interpret as a relationship between our heroines, but this is far from it. If you delve into this story, it becomes clear that they are trying to understand the meaning of all the strange events they face in their lives. The Only thing I did not like (it is personally to me) so it is the majority of backgrounds. Not exactly the backgrounds themselves, but the way they are depicted in this novel. Basically these are real photos with the use of taco effect, as if they were drawn by hand. But maybe someone likes it. Another thing that I can not fail to mention is the multitude of sound effects that accompany us in various scenes throughout history. Bottom line: Title Score Plot 8 Graphics 6.5 Music 7 Sound effects 9 Characters 9

SeaBed is a Visual novel that speaks of travels, memories, food, dreams and the separation between two young women (not necessarily in that order). For its version accessible to normal people Fruitbat factory did a good job in allowing the reader to increase the resolution up to 1440 * 1080 (the future!) You can then enjoy a little cheap backgrounds as well as sprites and CG rather successful despite some coarse errors of proportions. The music is well adapted, the sounds are above the average of the genre and the absence of voice acting never gets felt. The title or the headline shines is in its way of being told. By regularly changing from point of view, SeaBed follows the path of three characters to different personalities but to the common goal, understand what may have caused the separation between two of them and can be repaired this broken bond. The dialogues are natural, the descriptions are numerous and fall right. In general the text is filled with small details about the environment, the fauna and flora that make the scenes interesting and lively. The rhythm is generally slow, the characters are not in a hurry or in danger, so there is not really "action" or panting suspense. The story quietly follows its course by giving occasionally clues, questions still unanswered, touching passages and some moments of lightness. The important scenes mix with slices of life and if we add the secondary "tips" unlocked during the reading, there may be some confusion and need to reread. Fortunately the title is generously cut in chapter and everything is easily accessible via menu. During the 20-30h required for reading, SeaBed made the meninges work and managed to maintain a very proper doubt as to the outcome that I found logical and satisfactory. If you like the mystery, a little psychology, the pretty girls and obviously the food, I would not know that advise you at least you try to demo. What are you waiting for? "You'Re planning to sleep in the dream?"
