About the Game
You are on a spaceship drifting through space.
Among the crew are a mysterious and deadly threat known as the "Gnosia", who disguise themselves as humans while attacking and eliminating one crew member every night. The crew formulates a desperate plan for survival, in which the most suspicious among them will be put into "cold sleep" one by one, in an effort to rid the ship of Gnosia.
As the player, you can be on either side—human or Gnosia. as a human, your goal would be to find all of the Gnosia and vote to put them all into cold sleep. As a Gnosia, your goal would be to eliminate crew members every night, until the Gnosia outnumber the humans.
You progress through the story over numerous "loops", each loop a game of werewolf that lasts around 15 minutes each.
At the start of each game, you and every other crew member will be assigned roles, such as "Crew" or "Gnosia". Characters will speak and act freely depending on factors such as their current role, their personalities, parameters, and level of trust towards you and other crew members.
Each character has their own quirks and principles, resulting in colorful debates and discussions that make each loop as entertaining as the last.
Note: The content of the PS/Xbox versions are the same as the Nintendo Switch and Steam versions. There is no additional or exclusive content.
GNOSIA isn't just a single-player werewolf game...
As a combination of the roleplaying, simulation, and visual novel genres, this game is a unique "roguelite visual novel" like no other.
Each loop is short and sweet, but the more you play, the more of the game will reveal itself to you.
Uncover the Secrets of the Narrative over Multiple Playthroughs
The game starts when you find out that there are Gnosia hidden among the crew, and ends when you fulfill either the win or lose condition for your role.
As the player, you will have to repeat this process to discover the truth. What exactly are your enemy the Gnosia? Why do the occurences in this spaceship loop over and over again?
You will discover bits and pieces of information over many loops, and slowly but surely piece them all together to unravel the mystery behind it all in this masterful blend of gameplay and narrative.
Play as Various Roles to Improve your Parameters
At first, your character isn't very good at much and will have a hard time controlling how the discussions go, often at the mercy of the majority.
However, as you go through more and more loops, your level will increase, letting you freely allocate points towards parameters such as charisma and logic. Eventually, you can become a key speaker in discussions, directly influencing conversations and swaying other characters' opinions.
Colorful Characters and Infinite Possibilities
There are as many possibilities as there are players, and no two players will have the exact same journey. Your fellow crew members will be both your allies and foes in your mission to discover the secrets of the narrative, revealing drama and chemistry between different characters as they take on different roles.
Since the story and your personal stakes in the narrative are closely connected to the gameplay, the emotional ups and downs you will encounter throughout hit just that much harder when, for example, your ally suddenly betrays you and costs you the game. Enjoy and immerse yourself in a narrative that's unique to your playthrough.
