EVE Burst Error was created by C's Ware and was written and produced by the late Hiroyuki Kanno with the soundtrack composed by the late Ryu Umemoto. The game is a "Multi-Sight Adventure Game" where two different protagonists, a private investigator named Kojiroh and intelligence agent named Marina, provide different perspectives on the story. This "Multi-Sight" system allows the player to switch between both protagonists at any time during the game and often requires the player to have both protagonists co-operate with each other at various points during the game.
The title was initially developed and released for the NEC PC-98 on November 11, 1995 with enhanced ports later being released for the Sega Saturn and PC in 1997, featuring redrawn artwork and voice acting. Eventually EVE Burt Error saw an English release in 1999 courtesy of Himeya Soft USA, who published the title on their online store, which later saw a re-release in 2012 from MangaGamer. Eve Burst Error would go on to spawned an entire franchise of sequels beginning in 1998 with the Saturn release of Eve: The Lost One. The only Eve sequel to be localized was the series' third installment, ADAM: The Double Factor.
Since its initial release, Eve Burst Error has been remade a number of times on different platforms. Besides the enhanced ports released in 1997, the first full re-imagining of Eve Burst Error was created in 2003 by C's Ware for the PlayStation 2 under the name Eve Burst Error Plus and contained new scenarios as well as a completely overhauled presentation. Kadokawa Shoten released a second remake called Burst Error: Eve the First in 2010 for the PlayStation Portable which once again drastically redesigned the look of the original game. And finally a company called El Dia released Eve Burst Error R in 2016 which featured a presentation that was much closer to the artwork created for the game's 1997 releases.
