Rating Summary
This is a role-playing game in which players control high school students who must fight monsters in a fantasy world to solve a murder mystery. In addition to swords, pistols, and magical attacks, players use various “Personas” (i.e., creatures that can perform special offensive/defensive moves) to fight monsters in turn-based combat; damage is indicated by battle cries, impact effects, and a loss of hit points. Colorful blood splashes may occur during battle, and some environments depict blood stains on the floor/walls. A number of female monsters are depicted with exposed breasts, while other monsters have phallic-shaped heads and torsos. Various Personas (e.g., Succubus, Incubus) have sexual characteristics that are described in text (e.g., “They visit sleeping men/women and have sexual intercourse with them.”); one female Persona is depicted as a gyrating pole dancer. Alcohol is occasionally referenced in the dialogue, including a long scene in which the main characters play “drinking games” at a club; although alcohol is never consumed, characters exhibit common signs of intoxication (e.g., slurred speech, erratic gestures, red faces). The words “sh*t” and “a*shole” can be heard in dialogue.
