The game was designed by Koichi Nakamura with the artwork done by Harukiho Sato. Both games currently carry a C rating under CERO. The game was made using animated/static photography with some live-action filmwork mixed in between to create the visuals. According [[WordOfGod to the production team]], the visuals were inspired by the work done in the Ring and Grudge movie series, which you can see in some of the VN scenes in the game.

A new and mysterious drug [[FantasticDrug known as "Vision"]] has been hitting the streets of Japan, being a hit to the young people, especially to those studying in university. The drug, if and when taken, allows the users to see visions from a user's perspective while being high, created from a mysterious flower [[TitleDrop called Imabikiso]]. Players play a university student named Hiroki Makimura, who gets together with fellow student Manami Hayase and a few other students when they heard news reports of students being mysteriously killed with horrific burns on their bodies.
