Torico, known as Gekka Mugentan Torico (月花霧幻譚 TORICO) in Japan and Lunacy in North America, is an adventure game reliant on full motion video comprised of pre-rendered 3D animation.

History

Development

Torico initially struggled to obtain Sega of America and Sega Europe's approval, at one point being publicly cancelled[3]. It was subsequently un-cancelled and released in early 1997.
