During the game, players will have to understand what happens prior to the events of Haruaki becoming lost. A long time ago, Fujiyoshi Village was home to five guardians, one being known as the wolves. After the wolves caused many deaths, the humans decided to revolt against them by joining forces with the other guardians to kill them. However, this ended with the village being cursed for eternity, and red mist will come down from the mountain every few years during what is known as the Feast of Yomi-Purge.
Throughout this time, the wolves will kill one person, and every day the other has to hang one person, choosing who they believe is the wolf, which makes this all a glorified game of werewolf.
Now, Haruaki is lost but finds himself at the nearest city where he encounters a young woman named Chiemi and decided to stay the night. After a short walk, they spend the evening getting to know each other after a few drinks. The next day, Haruaki meets the other villagers, who are happy he’s there. Suddenly, a red mist surrounds Yasumizu, and Haruaki is forced into hiding. While in an outhouse, he hears a scream that he can’t ignore and steps out into the mist where he meets a shadow covered in fur. Moments later, he’s dead.
Players must play and re-play this adventure until they find their way through the nightmare.
Raging Loop is also available on PS4 and Switch.
