Developer: aiueokompany

One day, twelve people meet inside the dream world. They differed by occupation and gender, but they have one thing in common: their days are numbered. To survive they are given a task named, “The Choice of the Goddess,” which is a ritual that allows one person out of the twelve to escape their fated death.

Upon returning to the real world, they come to realize they have miraculously survived from their “approaching death.” This death they have escaped was their actual end… But, their lives had been extended for twelve weeks by the goddess who makes the selections.

To survive, they must uncover the “name,” “cause of death,” and “regret” of the other eleven people within the given time period. The protagonist, Rinka, will entrust her fate to the three cards that hold that information.

When faced with the death, how will you live out the rest of your life?

Peace is scarce in the country of Aslande, which has been at war with the neighboring country of Eressia for centuries. To Rhea, however, war is a distant concept; something she has heard about, but never witnessed. Born in a small, secluded village, Rhea occupies her life with more mundane concerns: her job at the local hospital, her playful bickering with her friend Asa, and her prayers for a successful harvest come autumn.

However, when Rhea’s childhood friend, Luca, returns home after fighting in one of Aslande’s many wars, Rhea is suddenly faced with a problem. Why is Luca suddenly so cold, so distant? What did he see out on the battlefield, and how did it change him?

At the same time, new worries plague Rhea, as one of the patients at the hospital is suffering from a rather perplexing illness – and a failure to cure him could have some unpleasant outcomes…
