Game description: Also known as "Forbidden Siren" in Europe and Australia. The story revolves around an interconnected cast of characters that possess a power which enables them to see and hear what a nearby character sees. Siren is divided into stages, each taking place in one of ten areas in the village of Hanuda, and organized chronologically in a table called the "Link Navigator". In order to complete a stage, the player must accomplish a primary objective that usually involves reaching an exit point, subduing undead enemies called "Shibito", or finding an item. Objectives in different stages are interconnected via a butterfly effect, and a character's actions in one stage can trigger a secondary objective in another stage.
There is a sequel to this game: Forbidden Siren 2.
