“The smell of the sea, the sound of the waves – Mihate-chou is a gorgeous town!”, the new transfer student thought as he walked to his new home for the first time. The years at his former school had not been particularly pleasant, so he was happy to find scenery that seemed to be colorful and bright – almost inviting.

A rope tightens around a neck.

As the first weeks passed, the exchange student grew more and more skeptical, as life has taught him that every rose has its thorn. What could this town’s “thorn” be? He found friends in class, joined a club, enjoyed coming home after school and some girls even seemed to be interested in him. This place was too perfect to be true and he started to become scared of what was hiding below its surface.

A knife slowly cuts into the skin.

Disappearance incidents and corpses coming back to life every 100 years? What. A. Joke.


More information about WORLDEND SYNDROME will be released soon. The visual novel is coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in 2019.
