Upsilon Circuit might seem like your usual fantasy RPG game, but what you do not know about it is that if you die in it… you can never play again! The game is said to have a sort of ‘perma-permadeath’ losing condition, meaning that players require to be extremely careful if they still want to play the game in the future.
The title is said to spawn players onto a single server and divides them into two teams of four, meaning that only eight players will be able to play the game at any given time. The gameplay is likely to be extremely intense, leading to swift brutal ends because every moment can be your last.
“Each Contestant explores the overworld and generated dungeons in search of the Dream Tech Crystals. They fight monsters, avoid traps, and compete with the opposing team.”
“When the Contestant fights monsters or gets treasure, the EXP and other rewards go to the Audience. EXP is used collectively by the Audience to level up the Contestant’s Skill Tree. Simply put, the Audience is part dungeon master, part strategist, and part judge & jury.”
Upsilon Circuit is likely to bring one of the most complicated and intense fantasy RPGs on the market. The title is still in development, but you can see some footage of the gameplay below.
