New free-to-play “Story Demo” is now available!


Both protagonists, Yuito Sumeragi and Kasane Randall, are playable in this free-to-play “Story Demo”, which includes action-packed gameplay, cutscenes that showcase the riveting story, bond-building episodes, as well as world exploration.

In addition to the “brain punk action” elements of the game, in which the player’s characters can use psychokinesis and work together with the various psionic abilities of their allies, this demo version also allows the player to enjoy all the features of the early parts of the game.

New Himuka, a futuristic world where science and technology have developed through the power of human brains.

Defeat Other with psychokinesis, weapon attacks, and other psionic powers borrowed from your friends.

Players can enjoy up to the end of Phase 2 of the full game in the “Story Demo”.

What will be the fate of Yuito and Kasane, headed for missions of fighting against hostile brain-eating Others…?

※ Some game features may be restricted.
