STORY

The story of Child of Eden
Child of Eden
is revealed through the game's introduction. It focuses on a girl named Lumi who was the first human to be born in space, on 11 September 2019 aboard the International Space Station. Throughout her life, Lumi dreamt of visiting Earth, conveying her feelings into song which she sent down to the people of the planet. When she died her body was preserved and her memories and data were recorded and archived. The story moves to humanity's advancement in space exploration, and the creation of a universal wide internet system called Eden. Eden is described as a fountain from which all knowledge flows, to those who have never set foot on Earth, containing all of human history and knowledge. By the 23rd century scientists attempt to use Lumi's preserved data to create a living persona with Eden itself, in an experiment called Project Lumi. As her recompiled persona emerges and awakens into Eden, she is attacked and trapped by an unknown computer virus (later revealed to be Swayzak, the protagonist from Rez).

The objective of the player in Child of Eden
Child of Eden
is to save Project Lumi , which is near completion, from the virus attack. If finished, Project Lumi would reproduce a human personality in Eden, the artificial intelligence inside which Rez
Rez
took place.

GAMEPLAY

Comparable to Rez
Rez
, the game revolves around shooting various objects that come onto the screen, which produce musical effects upon their destruction. Players choose between using a lock-on function similar to Rez's gameplay, typically for "orange" targets, or a rapid-fire function generally used for "purple" targets. Using Kinect, players can aim using their hands and clap to change weapons, though traditional controllers can also be used. Like Rez
Rez
HD, players can use additional controllers to provide external vibration and during the gameplay adjusts the music to the actions and movements of the players.

The game features 5 levels, called Archives, each with a different visual theme. These are; Matrix, Evolution, Beauty, Passion, and Journey. Each Archive is replayable, changing each time depending on the player's performance and style of play in the previous run.
