Emit (エミット?, Emitto) is an adventure sound novel video game released for the FM Towns, Macintosh, Windows, PC-9801, Sega Saturn, Super Famicom, 3DO, and PlayStation developed and published by Koei. It was designed to teach Japanese students more about English, and played the audio CD back at particular times using a peripheral called Voice-Kun, an IR emitter that could command the CD to change tracks and play them.[1]

The game was originally released in 1994 and divided into 3 volumes: Lost in Time (時の迷子?, Toki no maigo), Desperate Journey (命がけの旅?, Inochigake no tabi) and Farewell to Me (私にさよならを?, Watashi ni sayonara o). The plot is about a girl that can travel through time by walking in a mysterious tunnel.

Reception[edit]

On release, Famicom Tsūshin scored both Volume 2 and Volume 3 of the Sega Saturn version of the game a 23 out of 40 each.[2][3]
