Loop8: Summer of Gods is set in a nostalgic and beautifully recreated snapshot of rural Japan circa 1983, Ashihara. It is home to a colorful cast of characters, each harboring their own secrets to uncover. Nini will form relationships with the residents of Ashihara as they defend the town from the ever-present danger posed by the Kegai. With the power to travel back in time, players can rectify mistakes or chart a new path forward to explore the myriad possibilities of an August that never ends.
The deadline for humanity’s extinction draws ever closer, Ashihara’s fate remains in Nini’ hands. Players will use Nini’s special connection to the gods to reset the universe, and each loop will give Nini and his companions the opportunity to repeat the eighth month as many times as necessary until they succeed. The emotion-driven artificial intelligence system used in Loop8 reacts to every action and choice that players carry out. The emotions and tales of the characters will change considerably depending on the player’s choices, making each playthrough entirely unique.
