Square Enix has announced “Deep Insanity” multimedia project that includes a mobile/ PC game, TV anime, and manga. The project depicts the spread of the “Randolph Syndrome”, a disease that makes people fall asleep and never wake up.
The mobile/ PC game, TV anime, and manga of the “Deep Insanity” project will share the same universe, but with a different timeline. “PSYCHO-PASS” anime writer Makoto Fukami joins “School-Live!” anime writer Norimitsu Kaihō and manga artist Etorouji Shiono to work on the worldview.
At first, it was just news that happened somewhere in the world.
Some people fell asleep and never woke up again.
And apparently, the symptoms are contagious.
However, the mundane news quickly spread throughout the globe as an “Abnormal Situation.”
It was known as the “Randolph Syndrome”.
At the same time, witnesses of “Abornality” (異形) are reported one after another in the world.
It seems that they come from the huge underground world found in Antarctica.
What was discovered inside was a group of organisms that differ from the ground and unknown resources.
In order to cure those with Randolph’s Syndrome, and also to obtain huge wealth from the genetic information and underground resources, people take on an adventure to the abyss.
