Mizzurna Falls

Clock Tower developer Human Entertainment's Mizzurna Falls never saw release outside of Japan when it was released in 1998, and it's a shame. A meditative adventure with an astoundingly huge scope for a PS1 title, the game allows for players to explore every inch of the Colorado town of Mizzurna Falls, with a full day/night cycle and NPCs who go about their daily lives during the course of the game, ideas later adopted in games like Deadly Premonition or Shenmue. The game's plot revolves around a teenager, Matthew, looking into the disappearance of two classmates in the small town, with characters bearing more than a passing resemblance to the residents of Twin Peaks (as well as a few similarities to Blue Velvet as well): the prettiest girl in town hides a double life of drugs and men goes missing, an eccentric psychiatrist grows close to her, the richest man in town is kind of a jerk, and more.

While details on the game are relatively sparse, a fan translation of the game was completed in 2016, and a patch to implement the English text into the game is currently underway.
