After a disaster of some sort, the contestants turned victims communicate with each other, through texts and social media, while waiting for the rescue team’s arrival. Unfortunately, another danger emerges on set. A murder spree seems set to turn the newfound friends against each other n a thrilling race for survival.
Buried Stars is the work of Line game’s in-house development team Studio LARGO, and first arrived on PlayStation (PS4, PS VITA) and Nintendo Switch platforms in July 2020.

The unusual mix of found phone systems, survival horror, and gorgeous Persona style graphics won it two awards for Excellence Prize and Planning/Scenario at 2020 Korea Game Awards and was selected as the Best PC/Console Winner at MWU (Made with Unity) Award 2021.
