Here’s a rundown on the game:
Fight, Die, Rewind
A new kind of Sword Action
The heroine Kohaku wakes up in a factory she’s never seen before. Lying in front of her is a precious sword.
Speaking of its own free will, the sword introduces itself as ExeBreaker. Within ExeBreaker exists the ouroboros system, the power to rewind time up to 3 seconds.
Still unsure of what’s going on, Kohaku follows ExeBreakers lead. Soon she comes upon Cogen City, her home, in complete disarray.
With ExeBreaker in hand, Kohaku fights to unravel the mysteries of what’s left of the altered Cogen City.
Optimize the Action by Rewinding Time when you Die!
The main feature of this game is “Time Reversal (Ouroboros System)”, the power to rewind time up to 3 seconds the instant you die.
Rewind to the perfect moment and continue to as if you had never failed. Use that trial and error to optimize your advance through the game.
