The horror visual novel Raging Loop, which was originally announced for the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch, has been confirmed to also receive a PC release via Steam on December 5. This news comes from PQube through an announcement made on the company’s official Twitter account.

A brief description of the psychological horror game can be found via Raging Loop’s website. It reads:

“Immerse yourself in a thrilling psychological horror story taking place in the secluded Japanese village of Yasumizu. A heavy mist surrounds the place, preventing everyone from ever leaving. Ancient gods have come back to hunt the villagers down one by one. The feast has begun, can you escape the village alive?”

Raging Loop puts players in the shoes of Haruaki Fusaishi, the protagonist who has just arrived in Yasumizu. He is dragged into an ominous local tradition known as the feast. Among the villagers lurks a werewolf, an entity who is hellbent on taking revenge on everyone.

The game’s premise is similar to the board/card/social game Werewolf, wherein a group of players scramble to find out who the werewolf is in their midst. In the game, there are specific characters such as the Seer, Witch, and Villager who have special skills. In Raging Loop, these are called Guardians, and they have the following powers:

  • The Wolves kill one person every day.
  • The Snake sees if one is a wolf or a human.
  • The Spider protects one person from the Wolf.
  • The two Monkeys know each other’s identity.
  • The Crow knows whether a corpse belonged to a Wolf or a Human.

However, Raging Loop puts a spin on it by drawing inspiration from the title itself: players are set in a loop. Think Groundhog Day but with monsters and murder. Each death that you experience will not be the end, but these losses may reward you with new pieces of information like a key that will give you access to new paths in the game’s branching storyline.

If you’re up to the task in resolving the sleepy town’s murders (or your own), watch out for when Raging Loop drops for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on October 18 and 22 for Europe and North America, respectively. The PC release via Steam arrives on December 5.
