Gnosia, a “debate-style RPG” for PS Vita based on the Werewolf party game first announced back in 2017, will launch digitally in Japan around the end of May or early June, developer Petit Depotto announced during a Dengeki PlayStation live stream today.
Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
Gnosia lie. They pretend to be human, become close to them, deceive them, and one by one eliminate those that come to know them from this universe—.
On a drifting spaceship, the crew members faced against the unknown enemy Gnosia, which attack people, attempt a single strategy to resolve their crisis situation. That is, put the most suspicious people among them into cold sleep one person at a time, and deactivate all Gnosia that made their way onto the spaceship.
However, it is difficult to tell whether someone is a Gnosia or a poor soul made to be a scapegoat. Will the humans have the last laugh, or—?
Gnosia is a “Werewolf game” set in a science-fiction world. One playthrough (loop) is about 15 minutes-long, and the protagonist, character cast, and story developments are different for each playthrough.
During dialogue parts, where the characters discuss who among them is a Gnosia, each character including the protagonist calls others into question. After defending themselves and dispelling doubts, the characters vote for the most suspicious person among them. The person with the highest number of votes will be put into cold sleep.
During the movement parts that follow, you can explore the ship and talk to each character. Increasing your favorability among the crew members and giving credence to yourself is one way of doing things, or you can probe those you find to be worth questioning. Use this time to give proceed with the upper hand.
