About the Game

A mysterious figure abducts Hiyori Sena, transporting her to a strange world with nine other abductees and welcomes them to a world called Arcadia.

Everyone must act out "dramas" for a chance to escape, all whilst avoiding the trappings of a traitor.

Conduct your own investigations to search for clues—and find romance along the way!

From the writer of Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly, Uta Amamiya, and the illustrator of Norn9, Teita.

Whose hand will Hiyori take at the end?
