KEMCO and publisher PQube are excited to announce that as of today, Raging Loop is now available on both the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 4 in Europe. The game can be obtained in both physical and digital format there. If you’re in North America, the game will be available digitally for both platforms starting on October 22nd. If you want a physical copy, those will be available in North America beginning on November 19th. For those that would like to play it on their PC, the game will launch on Steam on December 5th. Here is the launch trailer:

 

Raging Loop is a visual novel that tells the story of a cursed settlement tucked away in a Japanese forest. A bizarre ancient tradition grips it, as an oppressive fog envelopes the village. Meanwhile, animal godlike creatures possess the inhabitants, forcing them into a terrible mind game. Each night, the villager possessed by the wolf guardian leaves behind a corpse. Each time, the villagers spend the next day choosing a suspect who will be hanged. Try as they might to find the killer, it just keeps happening again.

The game also has a day one edition that comes with an exclusive art book.

Players take on the role of Haruaki Fusaishi, who quickly finds himself stuck in a bizarre and seemingly endless loop. The strange thing is that each time he dies, he wakes up to find himself back at the first day he arrived at the Yasumizu settlement. He also does not lose his memory when this happens. To help players, the game marks the routes that have been cleared so far with a nice flow chart (seen in the screenshots below).

According to the press release, Raging Loop also has Revelation Mode to add more replayability. This mode is unlocked when you clear the story mode. Revelation Mode allows players to experience the story mode in a new way, revealing the inner thoughts of characters. This gives Haruaki Fusaishi (and the player) more insight into their motives.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

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.
