Square Enix launched the Deep Insanity: Asylum game for smartphones and PC via Steam (only in Japan) on Thursday, and it is also streaming a launch trailer for the game.
The project is set in a world overrun with the mysterious “Randolph syndrome” that causes sudden comas. Simultaneously, a massive underground realm called “Asylum” was discovered at the South Pole as the syndrome’s origin. Weird creatures, unlike any on the surface, dwell there with previously unknown natural resources. To cure the Randolph syndrome (and to get rich plundering the creatures’ genetic data and underground resources), people set foot in the Asylum.
The Deep Insanity: Asylum game centers on Woo Inominetas (played by Yuichiro Umehara), the sole survivor of a massacre that took place in a medical recovery facility. Hololive virtual YouTubers Amane Kanata and Tokoyama Towa are performing the game’s theme song “Madoromi” (Slumber).
The project also includes the Deep Insanity: Nirvana manga by writers Norimitsu Kaihō and Makoto Fukami, and artist Etorouji Shiono, which launchedin the February 2020 issue of Square Enix‘s Monthly Big Gangan magazine. Deep Insanity: The Lost Child, the television anime of the franchise, premiered on Tuesday . Funimation is streaming the anime.
