Following genetic experiments conducted by a group of scientists at the turn
of the millennium, a biological explosion contaminated the genetic structure
of life on Earth. Two attributes emerged from the ruins, known as Silhouette
and Mirage; like Yin and Yang, they cannot exist without each other, but are
fundamentally opposed in their nature and ideology. Only a Messenger, one who
contains both attributes in a balance, is able to get to the Edo facility and
reverse back the genetic disaster, destroying both Silhouette and Mirage. This
messenger is a young girl named Shyna Nera Shyna.
_Silhouette Mirage_ is a side-scrolling action game. The basic gameplay is
somewhat similar to that of Gunstar Heroes. The game’s standout feature is the
concept of the two attributes. Depending on the enemy’s attributes and the
type of attack used by Shyna, damage can be increased, and spirit (equivalent
to magic power) can be absorbed from enemies. Shyna can dash, jump, crouch,
slide, and grab enemies, executing combo attacks. It is also possible to
master moves, acquire money, and purchase special creatures called
“parasites”, which teach Shyna various types of attacks.
Silhouette Mirage takes place after a catastrophic event that causes a massive explosion and everyone in the world to split into two beings. Silhouette and Mirage. In case such an event happened humans created the "Edo System" to restore peace to the world, if the message was received. That Messenger is Shyna Nera Shyna known as the "Messenger of Destruction". Unfortunately, Shyna's memory has been mostly erased and she cannot remember where Edo is and has to find her way there. However, once she begins her journey she learns that the Silhouettes and Mirages are at war with one another, and to make matters worse is that both of them agree on thing and that is to eliminate Shyna.
