About The Caligula Effect: Overdose

Originally released in Japan back in 2016 on the PlayStation Vita, The Caligula Effect is a turn-based RPG developed by Aquria. The Caligula Effect: Overdose, on the other hand, is a remake of the handheld title over to more conventional gaming consoles and was first released in May 2018.

The game is set in a virtual reality program known as “Mobius”, a realm created so people can live in an idyllic high school setting, but forcing them to live out their 3 years indefinitely. The main protagonist is one of many groups who have realized their virtual entrapment. As the “Go-Home Club”, the protagonist and his/her group dedicate themselves to escaping from Mobius and its god-like overseer AI, μ.

To do so, the group has to fight their way out of the simulation in turn-based combat against monsters created by the simulation, and another group called the Ostinato Musicians. The Musicians seem to also be aware of μ’s existence but willingly supports it, and in turn, consider the Go-Home Club to be threat.

The Caligula Effect: Overdose is available also on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC via Steam.
