PQube and Red Entertainment, the developer of STEINS;GATE, have announced visual novel masterpiece Our World is Ended for Nintendo Switch.
Our World is Ended is scheduled to launch in 2019. The game tells a story of a young team of game developers who caught a horrifying glimpse of a destroyed cityscape when playing around with their augmented reality headsets.
Check out the trailer and details below.
Following the success of STEINS;GATE, Muv-Luv and many other successful narrative games, publisher PQube is proud to announce a partnership with developer Red Entertainment to bring the visual novel masterpiece Our World is Ended to the west next year. The game tells the story of Judgement 7, a young team of game developers based in Tokyo, who make a shocking discovery: While testing their latest game engine using augmented reality headsets, part-time director Reiji catches a horrifying glimpse of a seemingly destroyed cityscape. Neither did they program, nor animate this – but how is this possible?
What might sound like a dream come true can as well be an absolute nightmare: in Our World is Ended, virtual landscapes, characters and creatures from video games appear in the real world. Loveable characters voiced by a talented team, a perfect recreation of Tokyo’s Asakusa district and much more make this sci-fi narrative an outstanding representative and great entry point into the visual novel genre!
