This is a story about death and coffee.

Gamble your “time” for a chance to stay in “this world”. Through a strange mix of alchemy and dead spirits, various people continue to visit this unique coffee shop. A fantastical story between the “living”, the “dead” and their last drink.

The long-awaited Japanese translation of Everything.

You are now, whoever, whatever, no matter where you are. You who observes, are at the center of the world.

This is that sort of game.

Outrider Mako
Welcome to New Koza – an island where dirty money and bullets fly.

It's the end of the 20th century, on a historic timeline different from that which we know. A manmade island off the coast of Okinawa is humming with a dirty, exotic vibe - and it's awesome! Rust and faded concrete glisten in the morning sun and the late-night neon, showing off the various faces of the island.
