A classic 90’s visual novel returns with an updated modern remake to celebrate the developers’ 30th anniversary.
What tied me to this world…
I was just a regular student until another world was born in me.
Like softly falling snow, it blanketed and began to bury my everyday life.
It was only then that I realized…
That there were certain things in my life that never changed.
The same familiar scenery.
The warmth of the one I loved, who filled me with a joy I never noticed.
Their existence tied me to this world.
It was when I first started to want these bonds, to want that special someone, that time began to pass, and sunlight caused the season to really shine.
When it did, which world was I standing in, and who was holding my hand?
Lastly, ONE. launches December 22 for Nintendo Switch and Steam in Japan.
