PlayStation Store Description (from Ad Blurbs)

Featuring a story written by Persona veteran Tadashi Satomi, The Caligula Effect takes you inside a digital prison filled with brainwashed high school students, evil musicians, and an all-powerful virtual idol.  Follow the exploits of the Go-Home Club, a tight-knit group of Kishimai High School students who have realized that their lives are nothing more than a virtual charade.  When they discover that the world they’re living in is actually Mobius, a virtual reality construct created and ruled by the omnipotent virtual idol known as μ, this ragtag group must fight through crazed students and malevolent musicians, and face their deepest inner traumas, on their way to confront the almighty idol and taste true freedom.
