The Caligula Effect: Overdose Developers Discuss How it Stands Out Among Similar Titles

The Caligula Effect: Overdose launched just yesterday, and prior to its release many fans saw similarities to it and other Japanese high-school based RPGs. NIS America sat down with the devs to look into what makes it stand out. Interestingly enough, however, there’s actually some overlap between it and some of these titles. One of the closest comparisons was to it and the Persona series, which isn’t that far fetched as it might sound seeing as the original writer for the first two Persona titles also worked on The Caligula Effect. There’s also the heavy focus on the human psyche throughout the game, which was brought about by the direct as a former psychology student that he wanted to push in this title.

The Caligula Effect: Overdose is out now on PS4 and Switch. Those interested can check out the full interview here.
