Raging Loop is a Japanese horror game that you can download on Steam or purchase for PlayStation 4 or Nintendo Switch. This game is story-based and has no real challenge when it comes to “playing” it, it is mostly just a visual story. It is similar to The Walking Dead video game series but more guided and with no consequences or wrong actions.
How to Play
Playing Raging Loop is insanely simple, you scroll through dialogue and watch what events happen on-screen, that’s it. This isn’t like other games where you will have options and have to try to choose the one that doesn’t get you killed, in this game, you will die. Your first death comes after the story and characters are introduced and this is when the game is explained to you.
Basically, you go through the story and will eventually come to a part that ends with you dying, then you will be able to load that point with more knowledge and have an option that won’t end with you being killed. Obviously, this game isn’t about skill or gameplay, it’s actually all about the story.
In Raging Loop you take the role of a young man who is exploring around Japan on his motorcycle. He gets into an accident and finds his way to a village, crossing a river in the process. The people in the village are all very odd with their own backstories and characteristics, but they all share one thing in common, they hate the main character for crossing the river. They also seem to have a thing against outsiders in general, also showing distaste toward a little girl and a news reporter that are also visiting the village. After the introductions are when a giant monster appears and this is when you will start having deaths and having to load back in to save points. To avoid spoilers, the next part will be vague, but essentially you get attacked more and more as interactions with the other villagers grow tense, all leading up to a climactic ending.
The characters are what make any story worth paying attention to, and while Raging Loop doesn’t have many, they all serve a well-fit role in the story and move progress along accordingly. All the characters come with their own backstories and depth but each will have something weird about them, something that will make you feel uneasy about them. Then there are the outsiders, the reporter and her cameraman seem to be the only other normal people here, most of the time.
There is also a little girl, who also crossed the river, who is somewhat creepy and is made even creepier by the fact that she doesn’t know who she is or how she got there. Each character has a trait like this that makes interacting with them interesting.
It’s hard to ignore the fact that there is no real gameplay and you are just guided through dialogue the entire game, but there will be some fans who enjoy that type of game. Recognizing it’s more of a story than a game, it’s still not that great. The story is alright but it’s nothing too crazy and I don’t see the point of clicking through a long story when you could just watch a show or movie.
- Easy and simple, giving it open availability
- A decent story with good characters
- No gameplay
- Too long
- Lackluster for what it is
