EVE Burst Error, released by C's Ware in 1995, was written and produced by the late Hiroyuki Kanno, with a chiptune soundtrack composed by the late Ryu Umemoto.
The game featured a branching narrative where two different protagonists, one male and one female, provide different perspectives on the story. The game introduced a unique twist to the system by allowing the player to switch between both protagonists at any time during the game, instead of finishing one protagonist's scenario before playing the other. EVE Burst Error often requires the player to have both protagonists co-operate with each other at various points during the game.
The use of multiple perspectives has since been used in a number of later visual novels, such as Fate/stay night (2004), Machi (1998), and 428: In a Blockaded Shibuya (2008).
