After the Kegai forced humanity to the brink of extinction, the survivors fled to the stars. Raised on a failed space station known as the ‘Hope’, high school student Nini returns to Earth to spend his summer in the rural Japanese town of Ashihara, one of humanity’s last remaining sanctuaries. Though Ashihara remains relatively untouched, the Kegai are still a threatening presence, and it is only a matter of time before they break through the divine barrier protecting the town.
Gifted with the Demon Sight, an ability that allows him to see into the ‘Underworld’ where the Kegai lurk, Nini might be humanity’s last best chance of survival. He can’t do it alone, however, and he’ll need to befriend his classmates if he has any hope of fending off this ancient threat.
In this original coming-of-age RPG, step into the life of Nini, a newly earthbound teen who arrives in the quaint Japanese town of Ashihara in August 1983. Explore the town, befriend its people, and face off against the Kegai in turn-based battles where the outcomes depend on the relationships you’ve built and the decisions you’ve made. Use Nini’s special connection to the gods to reset the world, with each loop allowing Nini and his allies to relive the 8th month over and over until they get it right…or the Kegai overcome them entirely.
With one month until the world ends, how will you spend each day?
Loop8’s emotion-driven AI system responds to every action you take and decision you make. Characters’ emotions and stories will vary greatly based on your choices, making each playthrough wholly unique.
A nostalgic and beautifully recreated snapshot of rural Japan circa 1983, Ashihara is home to a colourful cast of characters, each harbouring their own secrets to uncover. Will your choices make them trusted allies...or mortal enemies?
Build bonds with Ashihara's residents while protecting the town from the ever-present threat of the Kegai, repeating the cycle to uncover how your everyday actions impact your battles in the Underworld, and vice versa.
Though the deadline for humanity’s extinction draws ever closer, Ashihara’s fate remains in your hands. Repeatedly return to the start of August, alter your actions, and see how they turn the tides of destiny across multiple endings.
