Where is the Haibane Renmei-town?

The title is very specific, but it doesn´t really mean that i want the town of the Haibane Renmei-anime in a game. It´s more like WHY is there no single game that tries to create a town like the one in Haibane Renmei?

To be more specific, i´m talking about this feel-good feeling that specific town creates while watching the show. There are many adventure-games that have big towns, like Zelda, Fable or Final Fantasy. Yet, none of these game´s towns are capable of creating this feeling of pure enjoyment. I´m talking about stopping and just watching the scenery, watching the people around you. But then, not only watching, but also interacting with them.


A town that isn´t dangerous, that is pure joy to walk around AND features many, many mysterious secrets to find out.

I guess, a combination of Fable 2´s freedom, Zelda´s soul and Final Fantasy´s love for detail would be close to a town like that. Simply walking between rows of houses, watching children play, housewifes hanging wet clothing out of the window, market people yelling what they´re offering, and such. Or basically, feeling as if you´re playing a Studio Ghibli-movie.

It may appear as too ambitious, but that´s a concept i´d love to see realized.
