What was our project?

To translate Serial Experiments Lain, the PlayStation game, into English!

The Serial Experiments Lain Game Translation Project began in 2008 and completed in 2014. We are grateful to the many amazing folks who dedicated a significant amount of time and money to make this translation possible!

The Game

The Serial Experiments Lain video game was released for PlayStation on November 26, 1998 by Pioneer LDC, following the successful broadcast of the Serial Experiments Lain anime series in Japan from July to September 1998. Throughout the game, the player unlocks pieces of multimedia information (Lain's therapy sessions, her diary, notes of her therapist, video segments) to discover what happened to Lain. It shares the themes, atmosphere, and protagonist, but not the plot, of the anime. The game is speech-intensive and entirely in Japanese, unfortunately rendering it inaccessible for the many non-Japanese Lain fans... until now!
