The Famitsu.com article describes the game as a "next-generation school juvenile RPG," focused on themes of modern pathology and trauma. The game's title refers to the "Caligula Effect," which is a pattern of behavior where one wants to see or do something the more if it is denied to them. It will be set in a virtual reality world called Moebius, where a group of nine boys and girls are trying to escape the virtual world to return to the real world.
Director Takuya Yamanaka, scenario writer Tadashi Satomi (Shin Megami Tensei: Persona, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment), and illustrator Oguchi are on board for the game.
