Chu-Teng (中天, "Transit"), is a Japanese Point-and-Click Game by OutSide Director Osamu Sato, the sequel to Eastern Mind: The Lost Souls of Tong-Nou, released for the Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows in 1995, but became lost media until 2013.

Taking place an unknown time after the first game, the player first encounters Nanshu themselves, explaining the story. Nanshu explains he was set to guard Chu-Teng, but the darkness entity named Chu-In broke him into pieces. Nanshu called for help, and found Rin, and one of his eyes turned into a transportation device, while his ears became a tablet for Rin to use. Rin then sets off for Chu-Teng.


Eastern Mind contains examples of:

  • Art Shift: Similarly to the first game, part of the introduction is in a crudely-drawn art style, while the rest is pre-rendered 3D animation.
  • Broken Record: Similarly to the first game, most of the music is short loops.
  • Genius Loci: Nanshu. Or at least, his head. The same applies with his twin, which is only seen in the ending.
  • Starfish Alien: All the creatures from Star Palace, Moon Palace, and Sun Palace, that Rin can interact with, are outright bizarre. Some have lots of arms, eyes, or resembling Onis.

How well does it match the trope?
