The Caligula Effect: Overdose


FuRyu has announced that The Caligula Effect: Overdose has gone gold. In short, the game has finished development and thus now ready to be launched. The Caligula Effect: Overdose is set to launch in Japan for the PlayStation 4 on May 17th. They made the announcement by posting a comic on their website, which you can see below:

For those of us that can’t read Japanese, the comic was already translated by Gematsu:

Panel 1: “OD (The Caligula Effect: Overdose) has gone gold!”

Panel 2: “What happens when it goes gold?”

Panel 3: “You don’t know?”

Panel 4: “[Director Takuya] Yamanaka leaves the company.”


The Caligula Effect: Overdose is a remake of the PS Vita title, The Caligula Effect, which was created by developer Aquria. The remake is being made in the Unreal 4 game engine, and includes dual story routes, new characters, and of course updated and improved features. Here’s the trailer for the game:


FuRyu also recently updated the game’s official Japanese website with new details on the game. There are over 500 students you can add to your party in-game by deepening your relationships with them. They also introduced two new characters. The first is Himari Minamide, a 20-year-old woman who died as a result of a “gruesome incident”. While not well known, she was the center of Uzume Tai, an underground idol group.

The second new character they revealed is Kouki Tadokoro, a fanatic that religiously supports μ. He is self-centered and does not care about the troubles of others around him. As a result, he is not well liked and is known as the selfish “Ego Head”. This personality means that the control of μ and the musicians has no effect on him.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
