Another Mind is an adventure game created by Squaresoft (now Square Enix) for Sony PlayStation and released in November 12, 1998 in Japan. The game is extremely obscure, having been released in the wake of Square's other titles Xenogears and Parasite Eve, and it remains unreleased in the rest of the world.

Story and gameplay:
A 16 year-old girl named Hitomi Hayama is involved in a car accident and admitted to a hospital. Upon waking, she realizes that another being, albeit a mind, has taken residence in her head. The player takes on the role on this separate consciousness.

The game features an interactive system reminiscent of text-based adventure games that is called simply Dialog System with which the player can communicate with Hitomi. It consists of context-sensitive parts of phrases selectable via menus that can be put together to create a complete phrases. The player can change the course of the story or their relationship with Hitomi depending on the answers given, and multiple endings are possible.

Instead of using CGI or anime, real actors are used in the game's cutscenes and full motion videos. Characters' emotions are conveyed through animated emoticons.

* Hitomi Hayama: A 16 year-old highschool girl, she's the game's main character. After a car accident, she suddenly starts hearing a voice from another person (which is the player).

* Mariko Takagi: Hitomi's best friend. She literally forces Hitomi to join her in the Wakaba Festival Committee.
* Toshiki Kaneda: An introspective boy who also joins the Festival Committee.
* Masato Kitagawa:

* Ryouji Higuchi: Their homeroom teacher.
* Hitoshi Yamagata: Wakaba High School headmaster.

* Kaoru Murai: The nurse that took care of Hitomi while she was in the hospital.
* Teruo Myouen: A freelance reporter that is investigating an unsolved case at Wakaba High School.
* Natsuko Mukai: Hitomi's psychotherapist. She's interested in Hitomi's "inner voice".
* Nanako Hiura: A mysterious student from another school.

  Manufacturer's description:

Set in real life modern day Japan, you must guide accident victim Hitomi, not playing as her, but as the voice in her head. Its important to not lead her astray or she'll stop listening to you. Beautifully realised in FMV, Square once again comes up trumps whilst changing the rules of the game
