About
A calm summer day turns into catastrophe when a massive earthquake strikes your city, throwing buildings and lives into chaos. In order to survive, you must navigate familiar locations under unfamiliar circumstances. The fellow survivors you meet and crucial decisions you make will affect the course of your experience and ultimately determine how your journey through this crisis will end.

Key Features
*Stop! Think! Then Act! – Evaluate each perilous situation and make decisions that will impact your own safety as well as that of others.
*Torn From the Headlines – Interact with realistic scenarios within a Japanese city devastated by an earthquake, including scenarios designed in collaboration with the Kobe City Fire Bureau.
*Danger Around Every Corner – Navigate a multitude of crises—from collapsing buildings to raging fires—in a city aplomb with peril.

Having never played the originals for myself, I wonder how this one compares to the earlier Disaster Reports.

What happened to 2 and 3?

I played DR on the PS2 back when it first came out. It got bashed for being slow and clunky but it didnt bother me that much. I liked the visuals and the overall presentation. It didnt feel like any other game that came out at the time

The second game was released as Raw Danger in the West. The third never saw release outside of Japan.

It's nice to see this game resurface after being cancelled in the wake of the 2011 Touhoku earthquake and after Irem effectively left the video game business. I'm glad many of the staff were able to start up a new developer and continue working on games. It'll be interesting to see what other IPs they may be able to acquire from Irem and revive.

Hopefully Steambot Chronicles 2.
