■ What is Void Terrarium?
void* tRrLM2(); //Void Terrarium is a dungeon RPG set in a contaminated, ruined world, centered around the last surviving human girl Toriko and the robot who takes care of her.
Take Care of Toriko
The player takes on the role of a robot who takes care of Toriko, a girl unable to survive in the contaminated world. Strange illnesses may befall her…
Furnish the Terrarium
Prepare a “terrarium” for Toriko—an environment for her to live in and spend each day. There are many objects such as furniture and plants to furnish the terrarium, so decorate it to your tastes.
You can obtain the things needed to take care of Toriko, such as materials to make food and objects, by exploring the wasteland (dungeons).
A world hundreds of years after humanity fell to a toxic fungi.
In an abandoned building, a robot meets a lone girl named Toriko. With the help factoryAI, who he encounters after, the robot creates a “terrarium” environment for the girl to live in, and takes care of her.
Taking care of Toriko is not easy, and various difficulties befall the robot. Strange illnesses caused by toxic fungi; the appearance of an entity that plans to restore humanity using Toriko; the destruction of factoryAI…
After overcoming every obstacle, the robot returned to his everyday life of taking care of Toriko.
At that moment, Toriko began to show symptoms of her body gradually decaying. But unlike the illnesses encountered so far, there was no clear cause. Why is Toriko’s body decaying? To solve this mystery, the robot begins his investigation into Toriko and humanity’s past.
All to ensure Toriko’s survival.
A lone young girl who somehow survives in a world where civilization has collapsed. Unable to survive in a world contaminated by toxic fungi, she lives in a “terrarium” under the care of a robot. The robot rescues her from being used as a seedbed for a plan to restore humanity.
A robot disposed of at a scrapyard. One day, it becomes self-aware and starts to move. Upon finding Toriko covered in mushroom, he had a sudden impulse to save her. Since then, he has been dedicated to taking care of Toriko with the help of factoryAI. It seems to be a home-use robot that was once widespread.
An artificial intelligence that manages a “self-propagation shelter” hastily constructed by humanity to combat the toxic fungi. It cooperates with the robot to take care of Toriko, but unlike the robot, factoryAI is unable to move, so it helps the robot through knowledge and information obtained from the database. It was destroyed upon getting wrapped up in the humanity restoration project.
■ Toriko Care Elements Enhanced
Take Care of Toriko in a New Terrarium
void* tRrLM2(); //Void Terrarium 2 features objects that affect the environment of the terrarium. You can even control the atmosphere of the terrarium, including temperature and humidity. Toriko’s behavior also changes in various ways depending on the atmosphere of the terrarium. Create terrariums of various different environments and enjoy the changes exhibited by Toriko!
—The humidifier and waterweeds have been placed to create a terrarium with high humidity. A slight steam drifts through the air, and condensation can be seen on the bottle.
—Toriko is covered in mold… perhaps the humidity is too much for her.
■ New Threats Befall Toriko
Just like the previous game, the contaminated environment can cause Toriko to contract various illnesses…
“Balloon Syndrome” causes Toriko’s body to swell up, and a new illnesses causes her to body to dry up completely. Work with factoryAI to treat and cure her.
Toriko’s body swells up like a balloon… Will she return to her original state after letting out the gas?
Perhaps because due to the low humidity, Toriko’s body has completely dried up.
