"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.

A rope tightens around a neck.

As the first weeks passed, the exchange student grew more and more sceptical, 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 skin.

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

100.

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