The original concept and screenplay for Rusty Rabbit was written by Gen Urobuchi (NITRO PLUS), writer and creator of famous anime titles such as Puella Magi Madoka Magica and PSYCHO-PASS, as well as writer of the novel Fate/Zero.
“While I have always had a great passion for the gaming industry, my work has mainly focused on creative adventures in traditional text format. I am filled with gratitude to NetEase Games for finally fulfilling my long-standing wish to create a game filled with action and adventure based on my stories,” said Gen Urobuchi, writer and co-creator (NITRO PLUS). “I would also like to thank all the staff who lent their expertise to make this project a reality. Our goal is for Rusty Rabbit to bear the fruits of this creative challenge, and I’m excited for my fans and gaming fans everywhere to experience this game next year. Thank you so much for your support!”
Thousands of years after humans left this planet, it was rabbits who inherited it…
Stamp, an old and eccentric rabbit living on a planet abandoned by humanity, spends his days piloting his trusty mech affectionately known as “Junkster”, collecting junk throughout the ruins of the frozen world and tinkering with machines. In a stroke of bad luck, Stamp crashes down into the world’s lower levels. There he finds D-TAM; terminals for storing information. Using D-TAM, he finds info related to his missing daughter and a hidden truth about the world they live in. Thus his journey begins, digging deeper into these ruins to unfold the mysteries surrounding this world.
