PQube Games to Publish Horror Visual Novel “Raging Loop” in the West


PQube Games have recently announced a new partnership with Japanese develoepr KEMCO, who are relatively famous for their recent string of retro related JPRG’s on the Nintendo Switch, to bring horror visual novel Raging Loop, otherwise known in Japan as Rei-Jin-G-Lu-P, to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in the near future.

Story:
The tribute to Japanese folklore begins when the graduate student Haruaki Fusaishi ends up in the middle of nowhere during a trip to the mountains. With his motorbike broken and unfixable for now, he heads out looking for help and finds a girl near a river who invites him to Yasumizu, a small settlement.

Haruaki decides to stay for the night and he soon meets the rest of the villagers. An old saying about dead people walking along the river makes him feel unwelcome in this isolated place.

It is evening when all of a sudden, Haruaki is asked to leave the village immediately. A red mist starts surrounding the village before he can. Haruaki is told to lock himself up and to not come out under any circumstances.

The next morning, two corpses are found: the feast has begun.
Once upon a time, the mountain by the village was the home of five beast guardians. Some of the villagers have received their blessing and inherited their power.

What unfolds afterwards is a perverse mind game which has become real. No one can leave Yasumizu until the feast is over, forcing the townsfolk to vote for one person to be hanged every day until the wolves are identified in an attempt to save the village from its fate.

So far additional details, such as release window or localisation languages, have now been confirmed; but we can expect additional details to be announced at a later date. For the time being Raging Loop is planned for a Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4; with an announcement trailer available to watch below.
