Save the world from a destructive time loop in Loser/s’ MECHANICA: A Ballad of the Rabbit and Mercury, a mystery RPG now available on Steam.
MECHANICA: A Ballad of the Rabbit and Mercury is a Sci-Fi RPG about a singing robot maid and her master. The two are currently residing within the city of Guillotine, located on Mercury. Due to the planet’s short distance from the sun, the entire city is enclosed within a massive dome, forever damning it to a darkness held back only by neon signs and streetlights. Surprisingly, within its grim interior resides the hopeful populace of the far future. Humans have already managed to kill God, and with his death, the world was freed from fate, allowing people to pursue any future.
The game's protagonist is a musical sorcerer. He plays at a run-down bar, creating music that directly impacts the emotions of its listeners through metaphysical means. Mecha-nica, his newly acquired robot maid, takes the role of his instrument, singing to channel his magic. All would be fine for the two, until they look at the counter outside the bar: its role was to count the ever-increasing future possibilities, a symbol of victory over God. It has now started counting downwards. In three days, Mercury will be no more.
Yet, after the apocalypse comes to claim the two, they then reawaken back in the past, ready to relive the few days they had to share together. Your job is to help them figure out the cause of the world’s end, and prevent it from happening. MECHANICA: A Ballad of the Rabbit and Mercury abandons the standard RPG formula to focus on exploration and role-playing. Together with Mecha-nica, you’ll get to wander about Guillotine city, speaking to its residents and addressing their emotion with songs. You may sing the music they ask for, or try different melodies, to see how they will react to them. Aside from forging bonds with the towns’ people to gather information, you’ll also have to spend time with Mecha-nica herself, becoming intimate with her over time.
