Yuuta Iridatsu is a pretty normal high school kid, with one exception: he faints if he sees girls' panties. You never quite notice how frequent panty flashes can be until they ruin your day – he has to not look, or it's lights out!
When he one day finds himself in the midst of a bus hijacking incident, he meets the famed vigilante crime fighter Strange Juice, and something unexpected happens to Yuuta – his soul separates from his body. Stuck in a ghostly incorporeal form, he finds that his penchant for panties has disastrous consequences.
While a ghost form lends itself to panty sightings galore, allowing Yuuta to wander unseen, looking up skirts and causing shenanigans, there’s a terrible catch: if he sees too many panties, Yuuta gets too excited, faints, and somehow causes an asteroid to hit the Earth and destroy all life on the planet.
Able to travel back in time to before the destruction of the Earth, Yuuta’s task is clear – solve this mystery! What happened to turn Yuuta into a ghost? How can he time travel? Why does fainting at the sight of panties cause destruction of the world!?
PUNCH LINE features visual novel and puzzle adventure gameplay where the player controlling ghost Yuuta can haunt the title's multiple characters, playing tricks on them and causing general mischief. As he navigates the world, Yuuta will have to be careful not to see too many panties, otherwise he will destroy the world.
