PlotEdit

In a world called Library filled with countless stories, the Characters within each story wish to revive their author for their desired future. To do so, they work together to gather inochi and fight the Nightmares that devour stories, knowing they will inevitably have to kill each other to get their wish.

DevelopmentEdit

The game was originally supposed to be published by Nexon outside of Japan but was delayed indefinitely due to localisation reasons.[5] The game's publishing was then handed over to Pokelabo.[6] The game's soundtrack was scored by Keiichi Okabe, Keigo Hoashi, and Shotaro Seo.[7]
