There is a new trailer for The Caligula Effect: Overdose, and it introduces you to members of the Go-Home Club. Each person has a personality archetype from the loner, the caring person, the reporter, and the leader. They also have their own approach to attacks and weapons in the gameplay cuts.
If you know anything about the source material, you know that the kids are not alright. Behind the quick and easy way to categorize them lies a group of people who weren’t happy in the real world. With the help of a vocaloid AI named μ (Mu), they escape into what should be an ideal paradise, the digital world of Mobius where they can forget who they were and be who and what they want.
It sounds great until they realize they need to face their problems. They also don’t want a digital dictator forcing them to live in a fantasy world. They decide to start the Go-Home Club for others who want the same and wind up fighting those who don’t.
The game was originally released on the PS Vita, but it’s coming to the PS4 with new visuals, redesigned menus, new characters, more content, and a new playable female character. There are over 500 people to befriend, so get out there and meet people. Honestly, the Vita probably would have exploded with all that extra stuff.
If that sounds like your jam, you can watch the anime or play the game. I’ll assume you chose game and let you know that The Caligula Effect: Overdose will return to the real world on March 12th.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
