About This Game

Brand-new Live-action Investigation 2.0 Gameplay! Free to play!

This is a brand-new gameplay which is totally different from normal gameplay!
All players will spend 4 days and 3 nights on the island. You need to collect various Clues in the daytime, and at night, everyone will gather in the cave and speak one by one to vote for the suspicious player based on the Clues they collected. The player with highest votes will be defeated instantly.

Everything you do such as logging, repairing Ship or picking up items will drop various Clues. Other players can find the “suspect” by investigating the Clues and checking each character’s Keywords.

A brand-new snowfield scenario brings coolness to the hot summer!

The game uses regional voice and adds Frozen Trap and Record Board item. Use items properly to change the game situation!

Story Background:

This is an asymmetrical multiplayer game with 8 participants, featuring real-time social-networking, like Werewolf.
On Island of Deception, 8 players will be randomly gathered together, who will play airplane crash Survivors on a desolated island. However, Survivors may have secrets that stop them from leaving the island and turn them into Saboteurs. As dusk falls, there will be a storm that takes all life and sweeps the entire island.
In a game of just 10 minutes, the remaining 6 Survivors must work together to log and repair Ship. In the meantime, 2 Saboteurs will hide in the dark and attempt to prevent their opponents from leaving the island.
Thus, a battle of survival and death, trust and deception begins.


Asymmetrical Multiplayer, Werewolf-like Gameplay
