PQube and KEMCO, the publisher of the Steam version, released Raging Loop digitally for Windows PC on Steam. After getting a lot of praise by fans and critics alike when it released for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 worldwide earlier this Autumn, Windows PC players can now also experience the Japanese psychological horror story of Yasumizu.
Raging Loop tells the ghastly story of a cursed settlement in the Japanese forest. As part of an ancient tradition, an ominous fog confines the settlement as animal godlike creatures possess the inhabitants and force them into a perverse mind game. Every night, the person controlled by the wolf guardian leaves a corpse behind and every day, the villagers gather to select a suspect to be hanged, in the hope of them being the killer.
You play as main character Haruaki Fusaishi, who quickly realises that he is stuck in a seemingly endless loop. Whenever he dies, he returns to the first day of his arrival to the Yasumizu settlement. The fact that he does not lose his memory after each death creates an intriguing setting for a visual novel and a complex story. To always stay on top of so many plotlines, Raging Loop conveniently marks the routes that have been cleared with distinct symbols in a comprehensible flowchart.
In addition to a rich story, Raging Loop provides high replay value thanks to its Revelation Mode. Unlocked at the end of the story, this mode lets you rediscover the story in a new light by revealing the inner thoughts of the characters and give you more insight about their ulterior motive.
Raging Loop is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam (Windows). Physical console copies of the award-winning visual novel come with an exclusive artbook.
