tableware - Laplace no Ma aka Laplace’s Demon (Hummingbird Soft / Vic Tokai - SNES - 1995)
Japan-only “psychic horror RPG”.  
fan-translation available.  
I actually had a lot of fun playing this. It’s a very old-school, traditional RPG, but it’s well-made, and the horror aspect makes it interesting. Also the character classes are really strange — Detective, Dilettante, Medium, Scientist and Journalist.  The Journalist for example doesn’t seem to be able to do much more than take pictures.  But this turns out to be essential because the photos can be traded in for cash (and the monsters don’t drop money).

    The biggest problem with this remake is that even though they made it third person instead of first, they really didn’t...
