Blood, Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol and Tobacco, Violence
This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of students caught within a civil war. As players explore various dungeons, they use swords, bows, spears, and magic spells to defeat fantastical creatures (e.g., slime drones, mechanized armor, large insects) and enemy soldiers in turn-based combat. Realistic gunfire and large explosions accompany the battle sequences. Cutscenes contain additional acts of violence and depictions of blood: an unconscious man lying in a large pool of blood; a man bleeding from a puncture wound in his chest; a man dying in a large explosion. The game contains some suggestive material: female characters in revealing outfits that expose partial buttocks; dialogue that references breast size (e.g., “Yeah, your boobies are pretty big already” and “How'd you even luck out with boobs that big?”). Players occasionally encounter characters that smoke cigarettes and consume alcohol. The words “sh*t” and “a*shole” are heard in the dialogue.
