Mateys, here is information about the game that recently became hits among players.

FuRyu revealed the detailed information about their game The Caligula Effect: Overdose regarding several things: Story Overview, Routes, System, and characters. In each explanation, there will be several screenshots provided for you too, so do read along the passage, mateys!

Story Overview

Mobius is a complete digital world created for the benefit of humanity by μ, a virtual idol vocaloid program capable of practicing sentience and self-awareness. Once they enter, people will be tempted not to leave the place. Regardless of age or gender, they are changed into students and forced to experience high school over and over, which μ considers the most radiant time in a person’s life. To grant Mobius resident’s wishes, μ curates Mobius’ creative energy by singing songs composed by the Ostinato Musicians. The city called Miyabi is the only physical area that exists within Mobius, which consists of the residents’ real world memories.

There are two routes available in the game: Go-Home Club Route and Musicians Route.

Routes

Go-Home Club Route

Inhabitants of Mobius become their ideal selves that they couldn’t achieve in the real world, and then endlessly repeat the process of becoming high school studens. The protagonist (you) and his or her classmates are outsiders within Mobius that have realized the existence of a reality outside Mobius. The strong desire to return to reality became their means to go back to the real world, and they form Go-Home Club to find a way to escape Mobius in order to return to their home (real world).

Some of them will remain in Mobius, and then, The Go-Home Club is considered as a traitor since they will destroy the fake happiness given by Mobius. As the president of the Go-Home Club, the protagonist (you), who meets another songstress named Aria and gains the power to fight, challenges the creator μ and her Ostinato Musician subordinates, and then you will find a way to escape Mobius by any means. It includes destroying the Mobius’ creator, to free themselves from the fake happiness (which is considered as suffering).

Musicians Route

The Ostinato Musicians are composers who protect μ and provide music. You will be tasked to destroy the Go-Home Club since they are considered as traitor. The protagonist, who became the president of the Go-Home Club, meets Thorn, the leader of the Ostinato Musicians expected to be the enemy.

Thorn speaks. “I understand that you suffered, and came to Mobius.”

Thorn asks. “And yet, do you truly want to return to reality?”

Thorn laughs. “You are only being used. You must learn both sides of the story.

Thorn gives the protagonist the abilities of a Musician, as well as a new appearance as a Musician (by the power of μ). The protagonist (you), will use your appearances as the president of the Go-Home Club pursuing μ, and as an Ostinato Musician protecting μ, to fully understand both sides of the story of Mobius, the world of happiness. After becoming double agent, your task is to either betray your comrades or something else..

System

Imaginary Chain battle system has also been further evolved to become easier to play. It becomes smoother and enjoyable for you to be played.

Imaginary Chain: New Sensation Command Battles that Combine the Exhiliaration of an Action Game with the Strategy of a Tactical RPG

The battle system visualizes and predicts character actions. In The Caligula Effect: Overdose, the battle system has been reformed from the previous game, and has evolved to become even easier to play.

Causality Link: Friendships with Students Gone Astray in Mobius Have Also Been Enhanced

There are more than 500 students in the game with their own unique names and profile. In the real world, they all experienced trauma and escape to Mobius to live an idyllic high school life. In The Caligula Effect: Overdose, friendships with students who have lost their way in Mobius have also been enhanced. Your connection with them will be the key to go back to the real world.
