Based on Square Enix’s Deep Insanity multimedia project, the mobile/PC RPG Deep Insanity Asylum will suspense its service on October 31 after running for one year with its initial launch on October 14, 2021 in Japan.
Deep Insanity is a multimedia project that includes a game, TV anime, and manga featuring a worldview created by Psycho-Pass writer Makoto Fukami, School-Live! anime writer Norimitsu Kaihō and manga artist Etorouji Shiono.
The project depicts the spread of the “Randolph Syndrome”, a disease that makes people fall asleep and never wake up. The illness is revealed to come from deep under the South Pole in a place called “Asylum” which leads people to explore this new land to discover a cure for the disease or to find what treasure this new land holds.
The game, anime, and manga share the same universe, but with a different timeline. The anime adaptation Deep Insanity: The Lost Child aired from October to December 2021.
