In this original coming-of-age RPG, step into the life of Nini, a newly earthbound teen who arrives in the quaint Japanese town of Ashihara in August 1983. Explore the town, befriend its people, and face off against the Kegai in turn-based battles where the outcomes depend on the relationships you’ve built and the decisions you’ve made. Use Nini’s special connection to the gods to reset the world, with each loop allowing Nini and his allies to relive the 8th month over and over until they get it right…or the Kegai overcome them entirely.
In the new video, the publisher walks viewers through interactions with some of the residents of Ashihara, and how those relationships factor into both the narrative and gameplay, culminating in a battle against one of the monstrous Kegai that threatens the countryside town.
Loop8: Summer of Gods will release on June 6, 2023 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC via Steam.
The title will be available digitally in both standard and deluxe editions on PC, priced at $49.99 and $59.99 respectively.
