Rewind time, forge ahead! Fight, die, rewind. Sword action like you’ve never felt before!
The heroine Kohaku wakes up in a factory she’s never seen before. Lying in front of her is a precious sword.
Speaking of its own free will, the sword introduces itself as ExeBreaker. Within ExeBreaker exists the ouroboros system, the power to rewind time up to three seconds.
Still unsure of what’s going on, Kohaku follows ExeBreaker’s lead. Soon she comes upon Cogen City, her home, in complete disarray.
With ExeBreaker in hand, Kohaku fights to unravel the mysteries of what’s left of the altered Cogen City.

Optimize the Action by Rewinding Time when you Die!
The main feature of this game is “Time Reversal (Ouroboros System)”, the power to rewind time up to three seconds the instant you die.
Rewind to the perfect moment and continue as if you had never failed. Use that trial and error to optimize your advance through the game.
Streak your way through Cogen City’s various action filled areas!
Thrilling action overflowing with high-speed dashes and wall kicks.
The key to defeating enemies lies not only in attacking directly with your sword, but also by hitting projectiles back at them to flip the script when you’re in a pinch.
A mystery that gets deeper as the story develops and you repeat the same thing over and over.
Every time you advance in the game the mystery deepens.
Taking on unique bosses and bargaining with characters you run across will pull you into the world of COGEN.
Accessing “terminals” scattered throughout the stages allows you to uncover the mysteries with your own hands.
