The main character, Kōhei Matsudaira, is a normal college student with nothing unusual about him. While taking a shortcut home, he gets lost, and ends up driving through a thick forest. Driving on the road that's difficult to see, Kōhei meets a mysterious, beautiful girl named Kyoko Kirigiri, and offers to give her a ride in his car.
However, their drive together does not last long. Kōhei gets into an accident, and the two seek refuge in a nearby Western-style house. This house was actually where Kyoko was headed, but it has a strange atmosphere and a huge tree growing inside.
The two are assaulted by a creepy suit of armor, a skull buried in the flower bed, and a girl who's the spitting image of Kyoko.
While reading through the story, the choices sound novels are known for will appear. Aside from the minor changes in developments depending on what you choose, eventually different storylines will diverge and will lead to completely different endings.

The game was promoted in the October 2016 issue of Famitsu.
A promotional video was also released to advertise the game alongside the release of the Danganronpa 3 Blu Rays. It was considered as lost media until 2021. It features Byakuya Togami discussing the game with Makoto Naegi and Aoi Asahina, set during one of the episodes of Danganronpa 3.
- As the name implies, it takes inspiration from the old Spike Chunsoft sound novel, “Otogirisō”, as well as Banshee's Last Cry.
