Phantasy Star II: Rudger's Adventure (ファンタシースターII テキストアドベンチャー ルドガーの冒険) 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.2 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.
This chapter features Rudolf "Rudo" Steiner (Japanese: ルドガー・スタイナー (Rudogā Steiner or Rudger Steiner)), who, after heading home while off-duty from the military, finds his wife and child killed, and his hometown devastated after the attack of a mole-like Biomonster. He sets out to hunt the monster down for revenge, leading to his eventual motivation in becoming a hunter dedicated to their extermination. It is implied through the events of this game, as well as his short guest appearance in that of Nei, that after deciding to become a hunter and having encountered Nei sometime afterward, he eventually gains word of Rolf's effort to seek the source of the Biomonster outbreak, resulting in him joining the group.
