Sci-Fi Social Deduction RPG Gnosia will be released on Nintendo Switch in the West in Q1 2021! Originally released on the PS Vita and having garnered a 10/10 review score with IGN Japan, the title will finally be brought to Western audiences by PLAYISM!
The Gnosia lie. Pretending to be human, they’ll get in close, trick and deceive, and then eradicate each person in the vicinity from the universe – one victim at a time.
The crew of a drifting spaceship, facing off against a mysterious and deadly threat known as the “Gnosia” and having no idea who among them is really the enemy, formulate a desperate plan for survival. The most suspicious among them will be put into “cold sleep” one by one, in an effort to completely rid the ship of Gnosia.
What exactly are Gnosia? Why do they attack humans? Discover the truth behind this mysterious life form and the intertwined narratives of your crewmates as you struggle for survival.
Gnosia is an all-new style of text-based adventure combining visual novel, RPG, social deduction and mystery elements.
