Tales From the Loop
In this game, a story is called a Mystery. It deals with a group of friends who try to solve Mysteries together. The friends are Kids, aged 10-15 years old, living in the late 1980s. Everyday Life is full of nagging parents, never-ending homework, and classmates bullying and being bullied.
The Mysteries allow the Kids to encounter strange machines and creatures that exist as a result of the nearby Loop, a huge underground particle accelerator built in the late 1960s. The Kids get to escape their everyday lives and problems and be part of something meaningful and magical, yet also dangerous.
They risk getting injured and also changed by the Troubles they have to overcome to solve the Mysteries.
