Mages Inc which was formely known as 5pb Inc will be launching their upcoming game title Anonymous Code for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Fall 2021 for Japan.
Here’s an official story description from the game’s teaser website:
6:28:15, February 6, 2036.
At that time, the 4,294,967,295 seconds limit of the digital standard clock engraved inside every computer in the world from the year 1900 overflowed, and led to a disastrous situation where every defense and attack system malfunctioned.
Like God’s hammer, the roar of the military satellites that rained down to the earth annihilated major cities around the world in the blink of an eye.
New York, London, Shanghai, Moscow, and then Shinjuku. The dawn after such a large-scale disaster was called the “Sad Morning.”
Is this really humanity’s judgment? If that’s the case, who is this person to judge?
Or is this no more than just a prelude to further disaster?
During this indication of unrest, the curtain is raised on the story of Anonymous Code. The setting is Nakano, Tokyo, the year 2037.
Anonymous Code is set in 2037 and revolves around an “Earth Simulator” created by the supercomputer “Gaia.” After humanity successfully recreates humanity on “another Earth” generated within the computer, the computer-made humanity soon created its own Earth Simulator, leading humanity to question its own existence.
Since the game is being developed by the same guys who did the Steins;Gate video game series, it’s same to expect a visual novel game with some good written story plot as well as interesting characters and unique setting.
