FuRyu Teases Crymachina, a New PS4, PS5, and Switch RPG

Publisher FuRyu is asking what it is to be “human” with what looks to be a new RPG. The company opened a teaser site for a new project called Crymachina, and more should be revealed by March 2023. [Thanks Famitsu!]

The teaser site for Crymachina opened on February 22, 2023. At the moment, it just includes a blank screen with the game’s logo, a schedule for March 1, 2023 at 12pm JST, and a countdown. There are also platform logos for the PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch.

Finally, the Crymachina teaser site asks a question in Japanese: “What is human?” Scrolling down leads to voiced answers from fourteen unnamed characters, ranging from “Humans are stupid,” to “Humans are confidential.” One answer even mangles the Japanese translation of a quote from the French philosopher Pascal, saying “Humans are a thinking reef.” The correct quote refers to man as a “thinking reed,” but the Japanese replaces the character for “reed” (“ashi”, or “葦”) with the character for “horse mackerel” (“aji”, or “鯵”).

A press release accompanying the opening of the teaser site refers to Crymachina as a a “completely new” title. The official Twitter account bills it as an action RPG. FuRyu itself is no stranger to high-concept RPG entries. It published the Caligula Effect games, as well as 2022’s Monark.

Crymachina is in development for PS4, PS5 and PC. A release date has not yet been announced.
