Phantasy Star II: Amia's Adventure (ファンタシースターII テキストアドベンチャー アーミアの冒険) is a Visual Text Adventure game developed and published by Sega for the Sega Mega Drive. It was initially only available in Japan as a download through the Sega Game Toshokan service, but later would be re-released as part of Game no Kanzume Vol.1 for the Sega Mega-CD, Sega Ages 2500 Series Vol. 32: Phantasy Star Complete Collection, and Sega's B-Club service. It is a part of a series of games with similar gameplay which are collectively called the Phantasy Star II Text Adventures by fans.
The emergence of biomonsters was soon followed by a new class of warriors called hunters. Hunters devote themselves to protecting the people of Mota from attack.
Anna Zirski (アーミア・アミルスキー (Āmia Amirusuki, Amia Amirski)), however, is a hunter of a different sort - one who hunts hunters, those who have gone rogue and become as much of a threat as the monsters themselves. This chapter details Anna's origin as a bounty hunter, and follows her chase for a wanted Motavian hacker. Her adventure in pursuit of this criminal leads her to find out about her target's remorseful past, inspiring her to renounce her bounty hunting career, and instead becoming a 'Counter Hunter' - choosing to focus her efforts on hunters that have gone truly bad, rather than dutifully arresting anyone with a bounty on their head.
