About Charade Maniacs
A mysterious figure abducts Hiyori Sena, transporting her to a strange world with nine other abductees and welcomes them to a world called Arcadia.
Everyone must act out “dramas” for a chance to escape, all whilst avoiding the trappings of a traitor.
Conduct your own investigations to search for clues—and find romance along the way!
From the writer of Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly, Uta Amamiya, and the illustrator of Norn9, Teita.
